Pure Pop Bag
No chemical coating, no plastic, no scary stuff. That's a first. It's even compostable.
Some microwaves just don't get along with Quinn Popcorn. This can make it impossible to get a reasonably fully popped bag without burning. By pulling out the susceptor and associated chemicals they made their popcorn a little more sensitive to the microwave used. There are three types of microwave that can have an issue:
- Older Microwaves -If it says Radar Range then it's old. Surprisingly some do work well though!
- Tiny Low Power Microwaves -Quinn popcorn needs a turntable and enough room to spin!
- Fancy Oven Combination Microwaves -Place the bag on top of an upside down plate and voila, perfectly popping!
Tips & Tricks
- You're smarter than your microwave. Don't trust the "Popcorn" button. It does a good job on some, but not all, microwaves.
- Dud kernels are a part of life. It's tough, but it's way better to end popping early than to burn the whole bag.
- Find your own shaking style. Quinn Popcorn tend to prefer the "Open Top Toss," but do what feels right. Even flavor coverage takes serious skill!
Microwave Popcorn Reinvented
(aka cleaning up microwave popcorn)
Two years ago Kristy and Coulter set out to clean up microwave popcorn. Having just brought their first son, Quinn, home it was time to take this icon of adulterated food and transform it into something anyone can feel good about eating and sharing with friends and family. After a sleepless year their popcorn was finally ready for prime time!
First, they tackled the bag. Gone are the chemical coatings (PFOA, PFCs, Poly, etc.). They even pulled out the susceptor (gray metal/plastic patch). What's left is a bag that's made from paper and paper alone. Well, it is special paper that is pressed to make it grease proof. That wasn't easy to figure out. Did they mention, it's even compostable?
The ingredients got even more attention. They never use GMO ingredients or preservatives. The popcorn is organic. The expeller pressed oils are high in omega-3's. Their ingredients all come together in 3 sweet, salty, unique, and delicious flavors. Plain and simple, their mission is to provide you with the best bag of microwave popcorn.
Work In Progress

About Quinn Snacks
Quinn Snacks was started with a really simple mission. They wanted to clean up a classic snack. They dove in head first. The founders of Quinn Popcorn are not sure they would have started this journey had they known how hard it would be. The thing is, once they got going they had to see it through. They hit every road block imaginable. Along the way they also had their eyes opened to the food system and the incredible changes taking place.
Quinn Snacks are not activists. They don't eat the right food all the time. They are, however, blown away by all the crap that gets thrown in with the food we buy. Most of the time it's completely needless. While begging suppliers to pull it out they constantly got the answer, that's just how it's done. Sometimes they didn't even know why!
The good news is that they are not alone. This journey has also illuminated the many who have been working to clean up food for years. They found companies that won't sell out or sacrifice their integrity. They continually work to create the best food possible. Many were just like Quinn; just starting out but determined to do things differently.
For Quinn Snacks it's incredible to be a part of this rising tide, to be one of many companies working together and toward a common goal of cleaning up our food!
