Schoolyard Snacks, aka The Cereal School, reinvented the high-carb snacks we love by replacing the not-so-good stuff with high-quality protein and natural sweeteners. The end result is a low carb, keto cheese puff snack that is also gluten, grain, and sugar-free. Looking for a review of The Cereal School low-carb, keto cereal?

We were SUPER excited to try Schoolyard Snacks new line of low-carb, keto cheese puffs. These cheesy snacks only have 1g net carb and 14g of protein. Compare that to regular cheese puffs with 20g of net carbs and 2g of protein and you can see why these sell out over and over again. You have 3 flavors, cheddar cheese, flaming hot, and new sour cream, to choose from. And just like The Cereal School cereal, these tasty snacks are free of gluten, grain, soy, nuts, and GMO’s, with only 100 calories and 2 Weight Watchers points per serving. Snacking never tasted so good!
But how do they taste? We tried the cheddar cheese puffs for this Schoolyard Snacks review. Most cheese puffs are fried, full of artificial flavors and colors and don’t really taste like cheese at all. We’ve all eaten them and some of us have had to cut them out of our diets because they add too many calories or they make us feel bad 10 minutes after we finish a bag (this happens to me!).
The first thing I noticed when digging into the Schoolyard Snacks cheese puffs is the taste. They actually taste like…cheese! I’m not sure how they did it, but they have a wonderful sharp cheddar taste. They also don’t have a weird aftertaste. And of course, because they tasted so good I quickly finished the whole bag and then waited to feel bad. BUT I DIDN’T! Because all of the not-so-good stuff is removed these cheese puffs don’t make me feel bad, mentally or physically, after eating them. They are also baked and not fried. Score!
Schoolyard Snacks Review: Flaming Hot Cheese Puffs
Wowza! The flaming hot low-carb, keto cheese puffs live up to their name. They are HOT! At least for me, they are very hot and spicy. For my husband, who loves Chalula and Siracha on most things, he thought they were very flavorful and not too hot at all. We both agree that these pack a punch. We also agree that after eating a bag you feel full longer, unlike most cheese puff snacks, because of all of the protein crammed inside these little spicy, crunchy puffs of fire.
Schoolyard Snacks Review: Sour Cream and Onion Cheese Puffs
Schoolyard Snacks just released their new keto cheese puff flavor, SOUR CREAM AND ONION! And it is our favorite of the 3! These crunchy little cheese puffs have a real sour cream taste, not that fake weird sweet sour cream and onion chip taste, the taste of sour cream and onion on a baked potato taste. And like the other flavors, they are low carb and keto-friendly, with just 1 net carb and 13g of protein in each pouch.

You have the option to buy 12 or 24 bags of each flavor or a variety pack with 2 flavors with 24 or 48 bags total, 12 or 24 of each flavor.

This is more than your average bag of chips, but these are not your average snack bag.
Schoolyard Snacks removed all the cheap, crappy ingredients and filled these cheese puffs with high-quality ingredients that cost more. Plus, they added a ton of protein which will help you stay full longer. As they say, you get what you pay for!
When comparing the cost of Schoolyard Snacks keto cheese puffs to high-quality protein bars the cost is similar to or less than them at around $1.87 per pouch. We recommend subscribing to save 10% on every order! You can cancel your subscription at any time.
We LOVED the new Schoolyard Snacks keto cheddar cheese puffs! They are packed with a real cheese taste and are super crunchy (and will for sure leave your fingers orange and your mouth on fire). Not to mention, loaded with protein without the gross artificial ingredients that make you feel bad. These are our new go-to salty snack! We love all of the cheese puff flavors, but are favorite has to be the Sour Cream and Onion!
