We have changed everything about microwave popcorn, and now we are ready to get it out there. But, we could use a little help...
Hi there! Thanks for checking out our Quinn Popcorn Kickstarter page!
If you love microwave popcorn, but want ALL the chemicals taken out and replaced with natural ingredients and fun & unique flavors, you have come to the right place! We even took everything out of the bag BUT the paper!
With your support, we can get Quinn Popcorn out into market and on the shelves at a grocery store near you!
The money that we raise on Kickstarter will help pay for our ingredients and the materials that go into our first production run.
- Organic corn kernels
- Non-gmo, expeller pressed oils
- Pure Pop Bags (stripped of everything.- we use compostable paper)
- Organic and all natural spices & herbs
- Material for our spice and oil pouches
- Our Quinn Popcorn boxes that are 100% recyclable and made from recycled materials.
Why Quinn Popcorn?
We have had this idea for years. We are both addicted to popcorn, but all of the microwave popcorn that is currently out there lacks the flavor and natural ingredients we crave. It also contains a crazy amount of chemicals. We wanted to eat a good and pure product. So, while waiting for something like this to appear on the shelves, and always being disappointed when it didn't, we realized we just needed to take a chance and jump in to see where it takes us. This was 10 months ago. With 100% dedication and hard work, it's been non-stop since then!
With the support of our family, friends, vendors, suppliers, blog followers, and fellow food entrepreneurs, we are finally ready to get it out there...but we could use some help! This is where YOU come in!
So, you ask, "What makes Quinn Popcorn so ridiculously amazing?"
Our PURE POP BAG: What's left when you strip the bag of all the chemicals, PFOAs, PFCS, and the susceptor? Paper, 100% compostable paper.
Our INGREDIENTS: We are extremely picky when it comes to our ingredients. We found the purist available. No preservatives, no additives, no artificial anything. With five ingredients or less, we get distinctively simple flavors, with real ingredients, real taste, AND we know exactly where they come from.
Our FLAVORS: It was a tough decision, but here they are!
Parmesan & Rosemary: Savory aged cheese with a hint of rosemary.
Ingredients: organic corn kernels, expeller pressed canola oil, rbgh-free cheese, organic rosemary, sea salt
Vermont Maple & Sea Salt: Just the right amount of sweet & salty.
Ingredients: organic corn kernels, expeller pressed canola oil, maple sugar, grey sea salt
Lemon & Sea Salt: Understated,clean tasting, but buttery. (without using butter!)
Ingredients: organic corn kernels, expeller pressed grapeseed oil, dried meyer lemons, lemon powder* and sea salt
*made from pure whole lemons!
One Box = 2 bags, 2 oil pouches, 2 spice pouches
The EXPERIENCE: You have a hand in preparing your batch! Adding the oils and spices after popping allows us to use the best ingredients available. Plus, it wouldn't be as good without your help!
And finally, a few photos:
Our Pure-Pop Bags!
We tried hundreds of herbs, spices, salts, cheeses,oils and suppliers for before finding the right match.
That there? That's nothing but popcorn and paper. That's all we put in our bags!
Just a few kernels freshly coated with Parmesan and rosemary.
So, it turns out that there is a lot that goes into getting a food product ready for sale. We blogged about it each step of the way and shard just about everything we learned. This is a shot of us working through the box design a few weeks ago.
The back of our box is probably a little overloaded with info, but there is so much to say!
Thank you for checking out our Kickstarter page!
2 oil pouches
2 spice pouches
We at first thought we could, but once we added tax, duty, and shipping charges up, it was going to cost about $90 for 1 box of popcorn!!
We are sorry about this, and hope that we will one day be able to get Quinn Popcorn in your country!
Sadly, we can't ship to Australia. This country does not allow one to import corn kernels of any kind. :(
We will need to charge you an extra $10 USD or so. Will keep you updated!
