Why We Love It: Anyone who loves the combination of salty and sweet in a snack will love these puffs. They’re crispy, light, and are just a little salty and a little sweet. The peanut flavor is very present but not overpowering. The first ingredient is navy beans, adding another source of protein in addition to the peanuts. The reason it got a 3/5 on the Taste Factor is because there was a limit to how many I felt I could eat – after about 6 puffs I had had enough and distinctly did not want more. Maybe because it wasn’t salty enough or sweet enough to trigger that craving sensation.
Meet the Makers: Based in the West Orange, NJ, P-Nuff was founded in 2015 by Juan Salinas, leading sports nutritionist with a PhD ins food science. After spending 20 years working in product development for several of the nation’s top food companies, he slowly grew disheartened by the food industry’s deception of the word, “healthy”. Although his well-known products graced the shelves of every grocery chain in the U.S., they lacked in what Dr. Juan truly believed in. He then developed P-Nuff as a snack that contained healthy transparent ingredients and that would provide active nutrition with every ingredient. www.pnuff.com
Fun Fact: The peanut protein in P-nuff Crunch contain high levels of BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids). BCAAs are important because they are metabolized in the muscle and therefore provide quick energy to the working muscles and reduces muscle breakdown.
