Veggie Booty... One of our dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free family snack favorites!

This is a brand my kids love.  Even better, most of their friends without allergies love it too!! 

If it's good enough for the Pirates, it's perfect for my kids!

We are a milk, egg, nut, fish-free household and love this product.  It's GLUTEN-FREE, ALL NATURAL  and VEGAN FRIENDLY.

Visit their website to find out more about their other products and where to find them locally.  Under the nutrition facts on their website about Veggie Pirate's Booty, it also states:  VEGAN FRIENDLY,  CHOLESTEROL FREE, KOSHER.

I know that for some the fact that these products are produced in a facility that produces dairy products will be a concern.  This is a decision each individual family has to balance.  I, personally, spoke with their current dietician, Emily.  She informed me that during the past two years Pirate Brands has implemented a more stringent protocol to ensure their 'complete allergen control program' in place is followed.  What does this mean for them?  'Spot checks' and verifying cleaning techniques.  

Need more reassurance?  They have NO consumer complaints to date on this product.  She said to let families know they can call and speak with her at any time if they have further questions or concerns.  Loving the positive customer service I received!

My family can easily eat a bag in one sitting and we also recommend the Barbecue Pirate's Booty flavoring.  The other Pirate's Booty snack flavorings, which we can't eat, include:  Aged White Cheddar, Sour Cream & Onion, New York Pizza, and Sea Salt &Vinegar.  We can only imagine they are as good as the others!

Did you know from the start what this product review was about?  If so, we know you're an allergy~friendly mate who enjoys many of the same treasures we do! 

Ahoy matey and see you next time!!
