“Healthy snacking is a way of life for me and my family. I was disappointed in the ‘better-for-you’ snack options, because a lot of them were still loaded with preservatives and junky ingredients,” explains Dustin Finkel, Ancient inGRAINed Founder and CEO. “I created Ka-Pop! because it helps you get through the day without having to reach for a bag of empty-calorie junk food. Gone are the days of associating healthy eating with boring and bland. Ka-Pop! is where fun and nutrition collide.”
Ka-Pop! Chips are a perfect snacking solution while at work, at the gym, or on the hiking trail and are versatile enough to pair with everyday recipes in dips, salads or soups. Plus, Ka-Pop! Chips are gluten-free, non-GMO, top 12 allergen free and vegan.
