I’ll be honest and say that no matter how many times I say I’m going to cut out certain things from my diet and our kids’ diet that sometimes I end up backtracking. We have four kids taking lunch to school daily that means we buy lots of snacks every week to make sure everyone is happy. It can be challenging when shopping for kids to find food and snacks that they both love and are healthy when you have picky eaters. We always make sure there are lots of fresh fruit in our home but we all like to snack so we always keep a supply of chips and sometimes cookies.

Chips are our Achilles Heel, so it’s one of the hardest things we’ve tried to get rid of in our home. We’ve cut down on a lot of the junk we buy but we all love chips so much it’s the hardest thing we’ve tried to get rid of so far. There are lots of different options available when choosing chips, so far we’ve tried chips made from vegetables, baked chips, and anything that claimed to be better options than just regular chips. So when I saw that Robert Irvine had his own line of high protein puffs I knew it would be a great option for the kid’s lunches and our snacking.
My husband and I are both huge fans of Chef Robert Irvine. We’ve been watching him on television for years, so it was exciting to receive the fun sampling box from Moms Meet. Inside we received two boxes of FITCRUNCH®, a reusable shopping bag, blender water bottle, a package of wipes, and an autographed photo of Chef Irvine. I was more excited about the autographed photo than anything else. Fangirling at it’s finest I guess.
About FITCRUNCH® Cheddar Cheese High Protein Puffs
Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine created FITCRUNCH® because he was set out to deliver something good for you without compromising great taste and decadence. Robert believed that with a ton of hard work, dedication,
and inventiveness, he could create quality, protein-packed food that’s good for you. It’s been quite a journey, but something that started with protein bars evolved into protein snack-size bars, powders, puffs, and more. FITCRUNCH® is driven to craft foods that do not compromise on taste or nutrition.
• FITCRUNCH® Cheddar Cheese High Protein Puffs are packed with 20g
of high-quality protein.
• Great for on-the-go families, they’re free of gluten, GMOs, and soy.
• They also do not contain sugar alcohols, trans fats, or artificial flavors,
colors, and sweeteners.
• One box (8 bags) typically retails for $21.99.
When I first opened up the box and started reading about these high protein puffs, I could tell it was way different from anything we were currently eating and packing in our kids’ lunch boxes. When I compared the FITCRUNCH® Cheddar Cheese High Protein Puffs with our regular brand it was clear how much more the high protein puffs had to offer. See how they compare below:
- FITCRUNCH® 4.5g total fat vs. Our current brand 9g total fat
- FITCRUNCH® 2 g total carbs vs. Our current brand 14 g carbs
- FITCRUNCH® 20g protein vs. Our current brand 2 g protein
- FITCRUNCH® Vitamin D 10mcg vs. Our current brand Vitamin D 0mcg
- FITCRUNCH® Calcium 340mcg vs. Our current brand Calcium 22mg
When I decided to swap the kids regular cheese puffs with the FITCRUNCH® Cheddar Cheese High Protein Puffs I was apprehensive that they wouldn’t like it much. Trying new foods can sometimes be difficult for our kids, especially JB. At first, they said they tasted different by the third day they enjoyed them even more. These puffs are in little small rounds which makes them easy for the kids to grab by the handful and stuff their mouths. They have a great crunch and a nice savory taste that you can add them to meals like salads.
My husband has eaten them on his gym days for his mid-morning snack. Instead of eating other junk filled with sugar. It has also helped him keep up his diet of only eating meat once a day. Since this snack is high in protein he knows he’s still getting his daily recommended supply of protein even with just eating meat once a day. We really enjoyed the high protein puffs and plan to check out the other flavors available for purchase. Overall it was a much better snack than what we currently purchase. I felt it satisfied my cravings better so I wasn’t snacking all day when I started with the FITCRUNCH Cheddar Cheese High Protein Puffs as my first snack of the day.
