Taste test: This snack seemed a bit odd to be bearing the Pirate's Booty brand, as it appeared to be much like lots of other veggie sticks that we've reviewed; they typically come in three colors, with tomato and spinach seasoning bringing red and green colors to the beige potato base. But Pirate's Booty did bring their own new twists to the humble veggie stick.
The first major change from those that we noticed was that the surfaces of the sticks were bumpy, not smooth. Even more significantly, we checked the Ingredients and found that the base of the sticks was corn and beans, not potato. The colors were muted as we've come to expect from veggie sticks, and the red ones were extra-muted, as you need good lighting to tell then apart from the beige ones.
We crunched in to find a denser feel than the potato-based sticks, with a nice crunch and a lot of salty potato, beans and veggie flavor. They tasted good and felt more filling than typical veggie sticks.
