Those with plant based diets rejoice! I’ve got a fun snack for you to try from Earth Balance, their Vegan Aged White Cheddar Puffs. As a person who tries to eat naturally, bright orange cheese puffs don’t really fall into my snack category as their ingredient lists are usually a bit sketchy. For those who may think similarly, Earth Balance has taken the guess work out of those mysterious cheese puffs.
Created with the flavor of Aged White Cheddar, they actually contain no cheese at all so even vegans will be able to enjoy this delightful crunchy snack. Mainly made from cornmeal and navy beans, the ingredient list for these chips is short and has generally recognizable products, making them less of a questionable snack. They are naturally gluten free, non-GMO and dairy-free. Making them super tasty, crunchy and light yet a bit addicting.
This bag lasted about two days in my house and was great as a special snack. These vegan cheese puffs did alright in calming my hunger, but was hungry again shortly after eating them. So I would reserve them for a special party, but not relying on them for nutrition, as a single piece of fruit would have been a better choice to ease my hunger for a longer time. Yet they are a great alternative for those who felt they were missing out on cheese puffs with their plant based diet. Give ‘em a try and let us know what you think.
