I’m happy to say that the flavor of these baked corn and rice puffs does taste like pizza, more than say, pizza-flavored Combos. (So now you know my guilty pleasure airplane snack.) I was quite surprised that you can actually taste real tomato and oregano, and paprika gives it a nice little kick.
Personally, I think I’ll stick with the regular old Pirate’s Booty if I want something crunchy with my grilled cheese sandwiches; but then if I’m craving pizza I can walk over to Grimaldi’s and order a pie to go. However if my kids ask for it? I’m perfectly happy to add it to the roster of approved snack foods with ingredients I can actually pronounce and continue supporting this cool little-company-made-it-big. After all, they’re New Yorkers too. –Liz
