Review of Bucky Badger Cheese Puffs

by StevenHelmer

I purchased these for the kids but had some myself. Read to find out what I thought of them.

Product Description: Cheese puff snacks from the Bucky Badger brand. I purchased a bag of this snack product at one of our grocery stores a couple weeks ago for a little less than $4. I ended up having a bowl of these snacks when I was home for lunch earlier today, as an after lunch dessert/snack/side dish.


I have been making an effort to cut back on snacking and usually try to have a granola bar, cottage cheese or some fruit. However, I purchased a bag of Bucky Badger Cheese Puffs for my daughters a couple weeks ago and, seeing the bag was open, decided to have a bowl of them while I was home for lunch.

I've had this product in the past but it had been a while and I really couldn't remember much about it. After trying it, I do have to say I enjoyed it much more than I was expecting (or, given the fact I am trying to cut back on stuff like this, more than I really wanted to).

One thing, in particular, I liked about this product was the cheese that was on the puffs. The bag advertised real cheese and, while I'm not sure if that, itself, was the big difference maker when it compared to similar products, I thought the cheese flavor was really good. It wasn't too sharp but had a noticeable flavor that still stood out. In other words, I probably would describe it as mild. But, it would be on the high end of mild.

Plus, unlike other brands, the cheese didn't have to be dumped on the puffs in an unnecessary quantity. This meant I could eat these without my fingers being stained a bright orange.

Another thing I found I liked about this product was the crispiness of the puffs. They weren't hard, as some of the advertised "crispy" brands. But, they did have some firmness to them. This is something I enjoyed, partly because they tasted fresher that way.

Final Opinion

These are still primarily for the kids and I do intend to at least make an effort to eat healthier alternatives. However, after trying this product again for the first time in a while, I do think I'll have at least another bowl from that open bag.
