LADIES AND GENTS, OUR NEW BLOG PATRON: CHEECHA PUFFS
Those of you who have been following the Project: Priceless blogs since Chapter One (the wedding blog) are likely quite familiar with our new blog patron, CheeCha Puffs. CheeCha had given us oodles of mini bags of their treats to share with our wedding guests, and we ended up falling in love with their healthy, tasty snacks. In fact, we were able to get Brian weaned off of fried potato chips, and for over a year now, he’s been far more likely to grab a handful of air-puffed CheeChas instead of greasy, nasty snack foods.
CheeCha Puffs offers a range of puffed snacks, not dissimilar to cheesies in their texture; but these snacks are very low fat, low calorie, and several flavours are also gluten-free! If you haven’t tried them yet, you’re seriously missing out. All it took was one bag for Brian and I to become CheeCha fanatics. With all the crunch of a traditional snack food, plus flavours like Ketchup, Blue Cheese, Dill Pickle, Salt & Pepper, and even Sweet Cinnamon, there’s no end to your snacking pleasure.
We interviewed Tracey, the bubbly and effervescent CheeCha Puffs spokesperson; here’s what she shared about this Canadian, family-owned-and-operated business:

From time to time, we’ll be checking in with CheeCha Puffs, seeing what they’re up to and hearing what’s new in their product line. In the meantime, you can get your hands on CheeCha’s at a variety of locations; connect with them via social media to find out what stores in your area.
