Pirate's Booty

Pirate's Booty is a baked corn snack. I have only tried the cheddar ones. They are good but lack the strong cheesy flavor of Cheetos. They are marketed as healthy snacks because they are baked. While they are lower in fat than Cheetos, I found that the subtle flavor makes me eat a lot more than I would if the flavor were stronger. Overall, as a snack they are pretty good, and they are gluten free, which is always appreciated. I would like to try the other flavors and maybe they would have the stronger flavor that I seek. (Please note: most types of Cheetos contain gluten, however, I believe there is one kind that does not contain wheat)


  1. thanks for the info. Just learned that my 5 yr old daughter has celaic disease and I decided to get tested myself due to the fact that I had alot of the same symptoms. Pirates Booty is one of the few snacks that my daughter really enjoys.. Thank goodness that it's gluten free..

  2. Oh My god thank you! I was so worried that it wasn't gluten free. I was recently diagnosed with celaic disease.
