In The Beginning…
The BOOMCHICKAPOP® story is nothing short of fantastical. And would you believe it all started in a cold, Minnesota garage? Dan and Angie Bastian wanted to do something fun with their kids, while showing them the value of hard work. The dedicated Spanish teacher and nurse practitioner soon turned their amazing kettle corn recipe into a BOOMing business. Sold at local events, this popcorn quickly caught the eye and more importantly, the taste buds of The Vikings*. The rest, as they say, is history.
*NFL team. Not Norse seafarers. But they probably would’ve loved our Sea Salt popcorn, too. What’s not to love?
Why yes, you can have your BOOM and eat it too. We are certified gluten-free and use non-GMO ingredients in all our products. BOOMCHICKAPOP is a better-for-you snack with simple ingredients, calorie transparency and great taste. Pairs perfectly with champagne-filled girls nights and your kid’s superhero lunchbox. Nothing but ingredients you’ll love™ and a “knock-your-flavor-lovin-socks-off” product lineup, to boot! Party on.
Bringing the BOOM
It’s as much fun to eat as it is to say, and that’s exactly how we like it. It seems, the rest of the nation has caught on too. BOOMCHICKAPOP quickly went from a local sensation to one of the fastest growing natural popcorn brands in the country,1 sold in natural food, grocery, club and mass retail stores nationwide. What can we say? Bringing the BOOM is what we do™. Alright. Enough chit chat, pass the bag of Sweet & Salty!

The Next Big BOOM.
We’ve got the best flavor team in town. Food Processing magazine named BOOM a 2014 R&D Team of the Year. Our most recent creation, BOOMCHICKAPUFF™ is hitting stores near you soon. Be on the lookout for the puff that’s made with non-GMO corn and ancient grains, quinoa and sorghum, is certified gluten-free and as luck would have it, tastes pretty amazing. Ok, we’re done tooting our own flavor horn now. Take a peek at our new PUFF lineup.
BOOM in the Community.
Small-batch popcorn made with simple ingredients, great taste and transparency are what we stand for, and always will stand for. We also stand for giving back to communities and causes that are pretty rad. From raising money for breast cancer research at the Mayo Clinic to showing kids the value of homegrown goodness, we’re always pumped to find ways to give back.
