There are few things better than a cold glass of crisp Chardonnay, like one from our favorite Napa Valley winery, Miner Family Vineyards, and a bowl of fluffy, perfectly seasoned popcorn…preferably that is not too greasy so you can think you are actually eating something healthy. Enter Live Love Pop, the Dallas based snack that includes three simple ingredients – popcorn, oil and salt….and at only 30 calories per cup, with very little fat and even a touch of fiber, it is a snack that is also good for you.
Started by Lauren Brundage, a twenty-something Dallas native who loved to snack…but wanted snack foods to be something that wasn’t unhealthy or bad for you. So, she embraced the philosophy that snacking should be ” healthy, easy, and extra delicious,” she started her company with a truly grass roots effort, bringing in her cousin and now partner to help with packaging as this business savvy young lady samples her product to retailers around town. With Sea Salt, Truffle Salt (my addictive favorite,) and Lime Fresco flavors currently available and more in the works as this determined young lady expands her production into a full scale commercial kitchen in North Dallas. With the expansion she will be able to grow her current list of retail partners, while keeping up with the growing demands of those already on board who have grown to crave her products like they would their morning coffee….I speak from experience.
Live Love Pop is currently available at Roots Juices, Number 1 in Highland Park Village, Sip Stir Cafe and even at Pogo’s on Lovers Lane making it easy to pick up a few bags when you are stocking up on your favorite Chardonnay. Or, you can order online here.
