Snacklins is a gluten-free, vegan, paleo pork-rind puffed chip made from 6-8 simple ingredients including mushrooms, onions and yuca. The 80-calorie per bag snack comes in flavors that include Chesapeake Bay, Miso Ginger and the classic Barbeque.

The company was founded in 2016 after co-founder Samy Kobrosly set out on a dare from his chef friend, Logan McGear, to make vegan pork rinds. After many failed experiments, a “puffy, cripsy, chip thing” emerged from Kobrosly’s kitchen and Snacklins was born.

In 2017 the company raised $25k in its seed round of funding from Union Kitchen – a food accelerator based in Washington DC Metro Area. In 2018, the company sold over $200,000 in chips and were on track towards $2 million in sales for 2019.

Snacklins After Shark Tank

Consumers are loving the flavorful puffed chip. Snacklins is now sold is nearly 1000 stores including Whole Foods, Lucky Vitamin, Walmart and Thrive Market. With their growing success, Snacklins is set on continuing its growth through expansion into more retailers and innovate with new flavors.
