What are Popchips?
How They Pop
Naturally delicious and healthier. That’s popchips. When they said it couldn’t be done, they raised the snack bar. How do they do it? Well, first, let's talk about how they don't do it. They never fry their chips. That just puts a lot of stuff in there that they could all do without. They never bake their chips either. That just takes a lot of flavor out, which, as snackers, they simply can't do without. So they came up with a chip like no snack aisle has seen (or taste bud has tasted). Thanks to the magic of popping, they found a way to pop all the flavor in, while keeping fake stuff and at least half the fat of regular flavored chips out.
The Magic of Popping
Popping is a way of making their naturally delicious chips. They start with the finest ingredients, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! It's a chip. All that’s added is a flavorful blend of seasonings to create taste-bud popping flavors that appeal to the whole family. Pop open a bag of popchips and try for yourself. Everybody has a favorite. Or two.
Naturally Delicious. Nothing Fake or Phony.
Their pledge: no fake colors, no fake flavors, no preservatives, no fluorescent orange fingertips, and no wiping your greasy chip hand on your jeans. No, really. They only use ingredients you can feel good about eating. And they leave out the bad stuff, like hydrogenated oils and msg, that give snacking a bad name. Because Popchips have no preservatives, make sure to get a good chip clip after opening the bag to keep their popped chips fresh. Or better yet, just eat them all at once.
The Snackers' Credo
- Snacking is good and should be encouraged.
- There are few woes a snack won't cure. Or at least make better.
- Good eating should occasionally be no more difficult than opening a bag.
- A snack can do without the fat content, but it can never do without the flavor content.
- If it doesn't taste good, it isn't a snack.
- You're allowed to eat the whole bag.
Popchip Questions & Answers
How do they pop a chip?

Don't chips need a lot of fat to taste really good?
You’d think. But they’re able to pop up the flavor without any oil in the popping process. Then they use a bit of all-natural safflower, sunflower and/or canola oil when they season them.

Even for a self-proclaimed snack fanatic, it can be downright embarrassing to eat a bag of fried chips out in public. That's what popchips co-founder, Keith Belling, realized one day as he was trying to sneak his snack at a San Francisco deli counter. It was not clear whether he was hiding them from himself or friends, but he knew those bland baked chips weren't the answer. It was almost enough to make him hold out until dinner. Keith, a serial entrepreneur, knew what he had to do. He had to find a chip that was both tasty and healthier (and less embarrassing). He had to put the fun back in snacking. but how?
Keith talked with fellow snacker and co-founder, Patrick Turpin, about his mission. Patrick told him about an interesting snack manufacturer. One visit was all it took. They got it. Forget frying (unhealthy). Forget baking (undelicious). The two snackers had found a way to pop a chip with all the flavor and a lot less of the stuff that gives snacking a bad name. Keith and Pat spent over a year, snacking, popping, and snacking some more, until they came up with popchips, a naturally delicious line of popped chips they loved to eat and did not have to hide. Now they are doing their best to share the bag with snackers everywhere.
