Live Love Pop. Delicious, healthy, dedicated to wholesome eating, and committed to doing good with every pop. Every bag of Live Love Pop is: non-GMO, gluten-free, preservative-free, and vegan (except Honey BBQ). Even better, every sale gives back to one of eight charities including breast cancer, Alzheimer’s research, childhood cancer, and veterans’ health programs.
We love supporting fellow small businesses and the story of Live Love Pop highlights the importance of family and giving back. Founder and CEO, Lauren B. Mariel, had been making popcorn with her Mom as a fun side business for years. But when her Mom was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer in 2013, Lauren quit her corporate job to focus on helping her Mom. Together they decided to turn their “side business” into their main gig with a focus on healthy snacking and giving back. Fast forward to today . . . Lauren’s Mom is doing well (yay!) and their little company has turned into everyone’s favorite popcorn maker.
We’re proud to include these great snacks in our boxes and love knowing that we’re all doing a little bit to give back and do good.
Rule Breaker Birthday Cake Blondie Does your sweet tooth always do you in? Oh, we’ve been there and that’s one reason we love Rule Breaker Birthday Cake Blondies! They’ve created the most amazing craving-killer brownie that still packs a healthy punch. The first ingredient is chickpeas (who knew?!) so that means a good serving of protein, fiber, and healthful nutrients.
This sweet little company was founded by Nancy Kalish, a health journalist and certified health coach, who also had a big ol’ sweet tooth. So, she embarked on a cooking mission to recreate the texture (hello chickpeas!), flavor, and sweetness of brownies without sacrificing healthy eating. This is one brownie you can feel good about eating!
Nancy named her company Rule Breaker because these tasty treats definitely do not follow the rules of baking. Made with only good, clean ingredients and no preservatives, they have no flour, no eggs, no butter and are certified gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and kosher (KOF-K) too. But they’re also safe for common food allergies including wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, eggs, and coconut. This is one snack the entire first grade classroom can have!
Pasokin Peanut Snack This traditional Brazilian snack was impossible to find in America until Marco Amselem and wife, Juliana, decided to make it themselves! As a young child, Marco had loved pacoca (pronounced Pah-sō-Kah) treats and then as an adult high-level adventure athlete, he relied on the sweet, savory, protein packed snack to power his training. Back in America, they experimented in their own kitchen and even traveled back to Brazil to train with local chefs to perfect the recipe. Eventually they got it just right and Pasokin was born . . . a delicious, all-natural, plant-based snack that will fuel your adventures!
Made with just four ingredients – roasted peanuts, pure cane sugar, toasted organic quinoa, and all-natural cocoa – Pasokin Peanut Butter Snacks make a great on-the-go-snack. They’re also gluten-free, Non-GMO, and Vegan.
This little company that could also does good and gives back to the local Feeding Kids First nonprofit dedicated to helping provide food insecure kids with reliable access to snack and meals.
Maxine’s Heavenly - Double Chocolate Cookies Even cookies can be healthy when made with clean ingredients! The folks at Maxine’s Heavenly started out with an old family cookie recipe and adapted it to fit healthful, natural ingredients. And the result is truly heavenly!
Out went the processed flour, sugar, and animal products (aka empty calories) and in went better-for-you alternatives like gluten-free oats, flaxseed, dates, and coconut sugar. Nutrient-rich and guilt-free, these cookies satisfy your sweet tooth and give you a great healthy afternoon pick me up.
These folks also believe that everyone should have access to nutritious foods and partner with the Los Angeles Food Policy Council (LAFPC) in their mission of ensuring food is healthy, affordable, fair, and sustainable for all.
Zego Fruit + Chia Bar – Blueberry Eating clean is a passion for Zego and founder, Colleen Kavanagh, has made it her mission to create nourishing, high-quality foods that are safe for everyone, even those with multiple food allergies. Every ingredient is carefully sourced and tested for over 400 pesticides, herbicides, allergens, and gluten. Each product is made to be free of ingredients that can trigger allergies and intolerance, but also free of chemicals like food dyes and artificial sugars, and with minimal agricultural residue, like pesticides (glyphosate and others) and heavy metals (lead, arsenic, etc.). They are so committed to clean-eating, they have developed their own patent pending food-safety testing system!
This focus on quality also means extra-delicious foods packed with nutrition that you’ll be proud to serve your family. But their quality doesn’t end there! Zego gives back 2% of revenue to help improve nutrition for low-income kids. They also source ingredients as regionally as possible to lower carbon footprint of all ingredients.
They have also taken the extra step of becoming B Corporation certified. Similar to Fair Trade or USDA Organic certification, the standard for B Corp. status is much broader and companies earning this badge must demonstrate stellar employee treatment, corporate governance, and a commitment to protecting the environment and giving back to their community. It means Zego is committed to making their business a force of good and we’re proud to partner with them in that effort.
