Saratoga Chips, America’s First Kettle Chip™, is excited to announce the launch of a new range of organic ready-to-eat popcorn. The product range, OrganicPop™, is a USDA Certified ready-to-eat (RTE) organic popcorn line offered in four flavor varieties. “OrganicPop™ was developed to satisfy two consumer driven trends in the snack food industry. It’s no secret that both ready-to-eat (RTE) Popcorn and Organic Snack Foods are both posting double digit growth in consumer research data, year over year. “OrganicPop™ is a fusion of these two hot trends in one unique and innovative line-up,” said Jim Schneider, President and Managing Partner.
“The difficulties of creating an organic popcorn snack range from the ground up has been challenging,” explained Danny Jameson, Vice President of Operations and chief architect behind the OrganicPop™ brand. “From ingredient validation, supplier certification and ultimate USDA approval, every step of development and production has to be documented and proven to meet the USDA’s strict organic standards,” Jameson continued.
The first of the four varieties in the new OrganicPop™ line is Ancient Grains, which is a kettle-popped cluster product that includes black chai seeds, red quinoa, and golden amaranth kettle cooked in organic raw turbinado sugar. The second variety is a family favorite, Farmhouse Butter, which is made with real organic butter. The third variety is another household favorite, Heartland Cheddar, which is made with real organic white cheddar cheese. And finally, rounding out the line up for OrganicPop™ is Roasted Garlic and Kale, which is a delicious blend of oven roasted organic garlic and freeze dried kale with only 35 calories per cup, making it one of the lowest calorie RTE popcorns on the market. The entire OrganicPop™ line up is USDA Certified, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, Kosher OU, and made with Saratoga Chip’s Mountain Pure Pink Himalayan Salt™.
Saratoga Chips has seen significant growth over the last few years and is excited about future expansion plans in both their traditional kettle chips, Saratoga Chips, as well as the new OrganicPop™ range. Saratoga Chips also has plans for new and exciting products to be released later in 2016 and in 2017. “We are excited to continue our trend of industry first’s with the OrganicPop™ line”, said Jim Schneider, President and Managing Partner of Saratoga Chips. “Our ongoing commitment has been and will always be to provide delicious, better for you, snack options,” he added.
The OrganicPop™ range can be found at all Shoprite Supermarkets, all Hannaford Grocery Stores and all Price Chopper Stores. Additional retailers are joining the OrganicPop™ movement daily, so customers are encouraged to visit the Saratoga Chips website for an updated list of retail outlets.
