Like many people, Jon Jew used to work for a company where he spent a large amount of time on the road. On long drives, Jon needed snacks to break the monotony and was quickly disappointed by what he found on the market.
The snacks that tasted good were full of unhealthy fats, oils, additives, and preservatives, while the healthy snacks tasted bland and boring. That’s when “a kernel” of an idea was born.
Jon liked popcorn and already knew it was full of antioxidants and fiber, so he started making homemade popcorn to take with him on the road. His son started by sampling the product and soon became involved in producing different flavors for his father to take with him. Together, they spent years experimenting with different popcorns, oils, flavorings, and popping methods before they finally achieved several flavors they liked. Turns out others liked what they were making too.
