Dairy-free cheesy puffs

Snack brand Peatos is on a mission to take on Fritos Lay with vegan versions of all of the crunchy snacks we love like Cheetos and Funyuns. The company decided to go entirely plant-based back last year and has been better for it, releasing fun flavors and teaming up with new retail partners. 

New this month is a partnership with bulk-buy chain Sam’s Club which is now stocking the company’s newest flavor at 500 stores nationwide. 

“We’re excited that 2023 is proving Peatos to be one of the fastest growing snack brands in the nation,” Peatos Founder Nick Desai said in a statement. “In just the first quarter, we gained 6000 new points of distribution, and expanded upon our existing line of award-winning offerings with the launch of Peatos Puffs in two new bold varieties.”

Last month, Peatos expanded its product line with two flavors Crunchy Fiery Lime Puffs and Crunchy Cheese-less Puffs and Sam’s Clubs customers will find the latter variety in 9-ounce packs. 

“Now, as we expand into Sam’s Clubs nationwide, more consumers will be introduced to the same classic fun, tasty promise of the classic snacks that America grew up on, but without all the scary artificial ingredients and with the benefit of better-for-you plant-based nutrition,” Desai said.
