Before I jump into my fabulous review I’d like to provide those that are unfamiliar with the Snikiddy brand a little background information: Founded in late 2006 by Mary Schulman and her mother, Snikiddy® creates products for families actively looking for healthier foods that satisfy their snack cravings. The Snikiddy brand is a portfolio of better for you snacks that are simple, wholesome real products for families. So dig in, it’s all good. Where did the name come from? Snikiddy® is a shortened (and let’s face it, easier to say) form of the word persnickety, which means choosy or picky. Growing up, Janet (Mary’s mom) and her siblings were known around school as the Snikiddy kids (a badge they wore proudly) because they always ate healthy lunches. Their mom (Grandma), ahead of her time with her passion for good health, would pack their lunch boxes full of locally grown produce and very simple foods. A teacher once referred to them as being persnickety and the kids’ version of the word (snikiddy) stuck.
Recently Snikiddy sent me a bag of their All Natural Baked Cheddar Cheese Fries to try out and review. Before even trying out the product I was extremely pleased with how informative the packaging was. It clearly listed out on the front that it is gluten, wheat, corn syrup and preservative free! My sister recently found out that she has Celiac’s Disease and has found it challenging to find foods that she can consume without worrying about what the aftermath will be so this product would be perfect for her! I also noted how much healthier this snack would be versus most of the chips out on the market and how a single servings equates to 35 pieces.
As for the taste, after just a few small bites I was hooked. It was extremely crunchy with a delicate cheddar cheese flavoring – nothing too overpowering. I definitely did NOT feel like I was eating a healthy treat but I felt really great knowing that I was. Snikiddy definitely does not compromise on quality or overall taste when it comes to their Cheddar Cheese Fries. Now, I was not the only one in the house who instantly became a fan – my husband thoroughly enjoyed them too! So much so that I shared a good portion of the bag WITH him! Both of us are excited to try out other products in the Snikiddy line starting with the Barbecue Cheese Fries and the Mac N’ Cheese cheese puffs!
