There was a nice variety of items. I enjoyed the chips the most. The beans were good but too high in sodium. Customer service was responsive when I had a mistake on my order. Would recommend people try them.
Loved this box. What a great way to discover new foods.
Very good quality food.

Meet The Makers
Pipcorn - Heirloom Sea Salt Popcorn
Pipcorn is a family business that started when co-founder Jen Martin shared some recently-discovered heirloom popcorn with her brother, Jeff. His immediate reaction was “We have to sell this!” The shells were incredibly delicate and the flavor was like nothing Jeff ever had. After much thinking, strategizing, and snacking, Jeff, his wife Teresa, and sister Jen decided to go all-in and turn these special heirloom popcorn kernels into a family business.
Pipcorn offers four lines, Heirloom Popcorn, Heirloom Cheese Balls, Heirloom Corn Dippers, and Heirloom Crackers, all of which are gluten-free and Non-GMO Project Verified. All of these snacks are inspired by childhood favorites and reimagined with heirloom corn to create better-for-everyone, modern alternatives. Pipcorn’s key ingred;ient, the heirloom corn kernel, is delicate, tasty, and easy to digest.
Amani - Cold Brew Coffee
Claude Bambi is co-founder of Amani Coffee Company. Claude is a dual citizen of the United States and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Amani was founded with a simple plan - to open trade between the US and DRC in an effort to create peace through economic development. The overwhelmingly positive nature of the farmers and their desire to create a better life inspired Claude and his co-founder to make a difference.
Amani Coffee Company created its own cooperative of 2200+ farmers (850 of which are women). We pay all our farmers above market and equal wages, as well as donate a percentage of our profits back to a charity we established in Eastern Congo to build roads, schools, and water supply.
Amani Coffee is direct trade coffee. Straight from our cooperative in DR Congo to our facilities in Chicago where we roast, pack, and distribute. All our coffee is organic, sustainably farmed, and specialty grade. We're including our delicious ready to drink cans of cold brew in this box.
Symphony - Seasoned Potato Chips
Symphony Chips were developed by Andre’ Anderson, a retired Las Vegas Chef and his two daughters. While working on the infamous Las Vegas strip, he developed a 28 herb and spice blend that caught the attention of patrons and fellow chefs alike. It wasn't until he put it on homemade potato chips that people began to notice its unique flavor. Thus, Symphony Chips was born.
A gourmet potato chip with a harmonious blend of flavors in every bite. Symphony chips are gluten-free, vegan, and made with all-natural ingredients.
Paradise Snax - Gluten-Free Pretzels and Icing Dip
Emily D. Edwards is a former social worker in private practice turned Founder of Emily's Foods. During her own weight loss journey, she became frustrated with the lack of snacks, dips, and icings options that were healthy, contained less sugar, more plant protein, and convenient for her busy lifestyle. So Emily started making plant-based icings: dips with pea protein powder to pair with her snacks in her kitchen and quickly realized that people who did not eat healthy icings and dips fell in love with them.
