Pirate Brands Story
The Pirate Brands story began in 1987 in Sea Cliff, NY with founder, Robert. Robert, a snack industry renegade and father of two, scoured the high-seas for a tasty treasure that would inspire people to live a little healthier and have fun while doing it. That's when Robert discovered the cheesy rice and corn puffs we know today as, Pirate's Booty.
Thanks to Robert and his tasty treasure, no longer do you have to eat "cheese" puffs dusted with neon orange powder with incomprehensible ingredients. When you buy Pirate Brands products, you are getting wholesome goodness without the guilt.
Pirate Brands has created products for the whole family that are all natural, baked AND delicious. They've eliminated fryers and trans fats from all of their products and keep the ingredients simple (no need to Google search today). Their only additives are just good, wholesome fun.
