CheeCha Puffs {Review + Giveaway}

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I love snacks. But I tend to avoid snacks with high fat, high sugar and high sodium. Not to mention high in calories as well! During movie nights, I sometimes find myself indulging in potato chips, but make sure to "count" the number of chips in my bowl (because if I don't, I would probably eat the whole entire bag during one movie, and then cry about it after!). So it was hard for me to find chips that are low in calories, fat and sodium. So when I found these amazing new "chips" at my local store, I was so excited to try them! They are low in calories and fat; are made with no MSGs, GMOs and trans-fats; they are puffed (not fried!), and come in so many yummy flavours!

So when CheeCha Puffs sent me over some samples, I was more than ecstatic! They sent me over SIX different flavours to try, two bags of each! I only ever tasted two of the six flavours they sent me (one of which I am in love with!), so it was very fun to taste and get to know more flavours. That is one thing I love about this awesome snack: they come in so many different flavours to choose from.

These were the awesome flavours they sent over!

Since I was given so many flavours to sample, I thought it would be fun to do a taste test with friends! This way, they could help me taste all six flavours, since it probably would've taken me a while to do. So I enlisted the help of my husband and two other friends to help in this fun tasting!

Our two favourite flavours were the vinegar and dill pickle.

We also all really loved the cinnamon flavour, especially me (it really does satisfy those sweet cravings!). And with ONLY 92 calories per 2 cup serving (20g), that makes snacking sound like a "good" thing! They really remind me of these:

The one thing we all found from the chips is that they don't have much (if any) food colouring added. For example, the triple cheese flavoured puffs did not leave our hands orange, like cheezies would (yay no orange coloured intestines!).
I think I have my friends hooked on these, since they have never heard of this brand before. They loved the chips. I had to take the pictures before they all got consumed!


CheeCha Puffs also come in great gluten-free flavours: Original, Sea Salt and Spiced Pepper, Sea Salt and Vinegar, Luscious Lime and Fiesta Salsa. 

I love what I see when I look at the nutrition label. For the Triple Cheese flavour bag, only 2.9g of fat per 20g serving. The sodium content is a bit high, but compared to regular potato chips - I am happy!

 CheeCha Puffs is a Canadian company, with many retail locations to choose from. And if you are from the US you could purchase them on Amazon or  The Gluten Free Mall.

  1. Glad you posted about this! I'm always snacking during movies and shows and CheeCha Puffs seem to be a great alternative to the average bag of potato chips. Looking forward to trying the Cinnamon, Dill, Salt & Pepper, and Lime flavored ones, thanks ^^
