Your Fair Snackmother™ Has Arrived

Mankato, Minn. – March 9, 2012 — Angie’s Artisan Treats, the famed all-natural kettle corn, announces its new role as your personal “Fairy Snackmother.” With the launch of a new brand, Boomchickapop, and its first popcorn, Boomchickapop Sea Salt, the brand brings you a great-tasting snack using all-natural, simple ingredients to love. Boomchickapop is free of gluten, GMOs and preservatives and is made with three simple ingredients: popcorn, sunflower oil and sea salt. Best of all is that is boasts only 35 calories per cup and is a good source of fiber, making Boomchickapop a preferred light, flavorful treat that satisfies without triggering post-snack guilt.


Angie’s Artisan Treats realized an unmet need in the market for a low-calorie, all-natural popcorn that actually had flavor. Angie’s fired up its cured, authentic kettles and created Boomchickapop. The name Boomchickapop represents just what snacking should be—light, tasty and doesn’t take itself so seriously.


“It didn’t take us long to figure out that there was a growing need for healthy, great-tasting and completely feel-good popcorn out there,” said Angie Bastian, co-founder and president of Angie’s Artisan Treats. “We figure that when you start simple, you can keep it simple: low-calorie and 100 percent feel-good. And that’s exactly what we did,” said Bastian.


Boomchickapop will be available in June 2012 at leading grocery stores across the country. It can also be found online at: A 5 oz. bag retails for between $3.49-$3.99.
