The Beginning - Cocomama is on a mission to bring Ancient back! In 2008, I learned about my many food allergies. My taste buds were appalled at the gluten-free offerings on the market and I decided to take charge. My mission led me to discover ingredients like Quinoa and Amaranth which are very versatile and nutrition-packed and yet rarely used in packaged foods. Thousands of years ago, these energy-inducing super proteins were considered sacred. Thus, Cocomama was created!

The Ingredients: Ancient Grains - Quinoa, Chia, Millet, Kaniwa just to name a few, were first prepared for human consumption over 3,000 years ago. Particularly Quinoa was first cultivated by the Andean people and considered sacred by the Incans. 

Isn't Quinoa pretty?

The Eating Experience - Crunched Out are snackable clusters made from 7 Ancient Grains and available in Vanilla Cinnamon and Fudgy Chocolate

The Uses - It's delicious with milk, yogurt, acai, ice cream or for instant gratification eat it right out of the bag. 

What?!? A Dessert too!!!

The Past -  Our first product line, Quinoa Cereal, is a ready-to-eat hot or cold cereal. Taste, convenience and nutrition work together to make a protein and fiber rich breakfast. Available in Wild Blueberry, Banana Cinnamon, Honey Almond and Orange Cranberry varieties. 

The Now - I started Cocomama in 2010 and have continued to put all sales dollars back in the company. This Kickstarter campaign will allow us to meet minimum production order quantities, ship product to stores that currently want Crunched Out and most importantly, present Crunched Out to potential new stores. To ship samples and meet with grocery store buyers, it requires not only time but also money. With your help we can present Cocomama Crunched Out to major Natural Grocery Retailers near you!

Risks and challenges

Education - Ancient Grains as a breakfast is a foreign concept (pun intended) to many people. Informing consumers that Quinoa, Chia and Millet are not only healthy but tasty is an important step for Cocomama. We have had great success with in store sampling and trade shows and are confident that after speaking with me, consumers will understand the power of Ancient Grains

Production runs always have quality control risks. Having gone through this process with our first product line, we are ready for all potential hurdles of producing Crunched Out.
