Pirate Booty New York Pizza Flavor

pirate_booty_pizzaI'm a sucker for clever packaging, so I was won over when I saw the packaging for the review samples the Pirate Brands (formerly Robert's American Gourmet) folks sent me for New York Pizza, their newest flavor.

The flavor was not as big of a hit as the packaging. The pizza booty wasn't bad; it had the typical and satisfying corn and rice puff crunchiness, it just didn't have a whole lot of pizza flavor.

I can see the essence of pizza in the ingredient list- tomato powder, mozzarella cheese, but neither my tween boys nor I tasted that pizza essence.

If you're a Booty fan, it's worth a try, but I think we'll stick with the classics- Veggie Booty and Aged White Cheddar.

Read our thought on some of the other recent additions to the pirate booty line.

One ounce packages retail for $1.49.

Disclosure: I received a free sample pack, but was not paid to post this review.

CTA Santa Train Tweet-up on the Yellow Line

I was so taken when I first set eyes on the CTA's Holiday Train that instead of pondering whether taxpayer money funds this delightfully extravagant ode to Santa, I found myself wondering if the train would make it out to the Yellow Line, the Skokie Swift.

Yes it does and I'm planning a Tweet-up in its honor! (And also my four-year blogaversary.) Please RSVP here.

Local bloggers and their little ones (keep a close eye on them please!) can join in the fun at 3:00 on December 23!

We'll meet up at the Skokie Swift Starbucks and about 3:15 head over near the tracks for ride on the train or a photo op. You'll have to buy your own train tickets, but Starbucks will provide tweet-up guests with drinks and treats afterward. Guests on the RSVP list will be the first priority for the Starbucks goodies.

The wonderful folks at Edelman are providing me with a gift card for the event, so you'll need to check in with me, not the baristas.
