Business: Quinn Popcorn
Product: Popcorn in eco-friendly bags
A disdain for artificial food ingredients and chemical packaging drove Kristy Lewis of Quinn Popcorn to create an organic product in a safer pouch. Each treat is prepared inside of what the company calls the “Pure Pop Bag,” which is made of mechanically pressed (and naturally grease-proof) paper. “We took everything unnatural out, which resulted in a few industry firsts,” she says. All in all, not a bad choice to enjoy alongside your next Netflix session.
Editor’s Note: It doesn’t matter whether you get the “parmesan & rosemary” or the “Vermont maple & sea salt” — whatever flavor you purchase will be delicious. And as snacks go, this one proved to be simultaneously indulgent and guilt-free. As one of our Gift Guide judges noted, “I don’t feel gross eating this – I feel amazing!”
