CheeCha Puffs: A Yummy Healthy Snack

Okay, so they are not healthy like eating vegetables but we all have snacks sometimes.  Above is a picture of three Salt & Vinegar flavoured ‘healthier snack’ along with a weighed serving size (strangely, not one of them was the correct number of chips for the weight).  As you can see from the identical bowls, you get a lot more for your calories with CheeCha Puffs.

As frugal as we try to live, I love trying new things so wanted a place for reviews of items I try, my thoughts, my brags, rants and more. A little about me, I earn extra money online doing surveys, swagbucks, blogging and more.  I coupon and generally try to live frugally but am happy to spend for the items I love and want (but if I can get them cheaper I will).  I love my cats and treat them[Read more]
