Incredi Puffs – Cinnamon Apple Pie Review

Incredi Puffs – Cinnamon Apple Pie Review

OMG!  This week’s review was a treat.  Literally, a treat.  A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Lisa Wells over at The Snack Brigade for her awesome shipment of Incredi Puffs snacks for my review.

I received an email from her asking if I would be so kind as to do a review on a couple of their vegan products, the Cinnamon Apple Pie and the Sizzlin’ Sriracha snacks.

Of…Freaking…Course I would love to do a review!  Who wouldn’t like some free stuff?

Well…I guess if it were not any good, it doesn’t matter if it is free or not, right?  Lucky for me, these puffy bastards are delicious!

Just as the front cover describes, these summa-a-bitches are coated in a sweet, cinnamony, apple-pie — memory inducing coating of goodness.

This guys remind me a lot of the Hippeas Chickpea Snacks, that I did a review on back at the beginning of this year.  They are much lighter in texture than the Hippeas, and The Snack Brigade does not skimp on size providing us with a much larger 6oz bag over the 4 oz from Hippeas.  Thank you for that!

As far as taste, these things are sweet, crunchy, cinnamon-y, and definitely not missing the apple flavor!  At first taste, you are hit with the sweet and tangy flavor of a ripened Granny Smith Apple.  I also was brought to reminisce of those days in junior high when I had just enough money left over from my allowance to afford a couple of those Willy Wonka Jolly Rancher stix from the local gas station down the street from school (we would often skip out to sneak off to that location while the others played kickball on the playground).  Sour Apple was my favorite.  The apple in these bastards reminds me of that!  Sweet sweet memories!

“Made with wholesome ingredients you can actually pronounce” — says the back packaging.  No joking around there:

Corn Meal
Little bit of oil
Sugar
Apple Powder
Spices
Rice Flour
Tapioca Sugar
Corn Sugar
and some other flavorings (Trade-secret I guess)

So what about them Nutes?  (Nutrition Facts)?

Now…for something out of the ordinary.  Being a designer, I notice some things that others may not notice.  I LOVE the packaging.  The sketched art looks fantastic, and the anthropormorphism with the puffs is funny. But what the hell is up with this guy:

Is he pissed he is having to help carry this large plate with a slice of pie with one of his likeness posed atop like he is in a fencing competition?  Is he pissed that Fred, in the background, is eating pie instead of helping, or was this guy a friend (or lover) of one of the apples that got made into other puffs? Who know?  I like it tho!

So…if you are in the mood for some good ole Apple Pie flavored snacks to much on, give Incredi Puffs a try.  Right now…I am thinking they are not in stores everywhere, but you can get them on good ole Amazon.

Stay Tuned!

Im goona eat me up some of them Sriracha flavored ones next and let you know what I think of them.  I’m pretty damn sure it will be the same, if not better, than this one.
