I didn’t get a chance tho try these at the Natural Products Expo last March, but I saw people walking around with Beanitos Puffs reusable bags. I had been keeping my eye out for them to hit the shelves, and finally they have. Feels kind of late, but better late than never!
I posted a picture on our Instagram when I discovered them. I found these in Southern California at Mother’s Market in the section with the other puffs. But I also found them at a couple different Fresh & Easy stores. Hopefully they will be around where you shop too!
First off, there are a few different flavors that Beanitos has for their puffs. The only vegan one is the “hot chili lime”, so be aware of that.
Now, on to the good stuff!! If you like spicy, and you used to be a fan of Cheetos (or maybe still are) these babies are for you. I haven’t had Cheetos in a long LONG time, but when I was a kid they were packed into my lunch the majority of the time, along with my peanut butter and jam sandwich, haha. I avoid corn, you know, all that darn GMO stuff, plus… really, what else can you chew and have come back out the other end WHOLE? That tells me our bodies don’t know how to process it really. So, even if Cheetos came out with a puff that didn’t have dairy in it or any of their other crazy additives and preservatives, I still wouldn’t eat it. Beanitos ingredients for these puffs are pretty simple, easy to understand and taste great!
These feel like Cheetos, to the bite. I love it! There isn’t much of a lime taste, it’s real subtle. The chili gets a bit hotter as you eat it. It’s got more than just a little kick, that’s for sure. But I am a fan!! I’ve included the ingredient list and nutirtional facts as well as what the puffs REALLY look like. The only negative I have to say about them is that the bag is quite a bit bigger than the amount of puffs in the bag. The picture below is a full bag.
