I have tried their multigrain Puffins, Chocolate Chip Snackimals, and Cheese puffs. The snackimals I have already tried in the past and frequently buy them for my daughter but the Puffins were new to us. They were very good in almond milk and I also took a handful for my daughter in the car as a snack on the way to hula practice. My daughter's favorite was the cheese puffs. All and all they are very good. My only critique is I would like to see them using more organic ingredients.
It makes me feel a little better that kids can have a salty or sugary snack once in a while without ingesting a lot of yucky chemicals.
In fact, in honor of its 40th birthday, is making a stand and saying NO to the bad stuff, and YES to natural foods, and would like to encourage others to do the same!
