Masala Pop

When Neha Patel was little, her mom would make popcorn-based snacks like the ones she'd been able to buy from "Walahs" (snack vendors) all over India. She'd spice the popcorn in a big kettle, then add lentil chips (papadums) and peanuts. Wherever Neha went, bags of spiced popcorn followed, to the delight of Neha's friends and co-workers. Neha, after 15 years working in the field of sustainability, was looking for a way she could start a business and personally do her small part to save the planet.

Masala Pop is made with non-GMO corn and organic ingredients, and the company's mission includes a committment to supporting local groups, community efforts and organizations through in-kind donations, fundraising campaigns and volunteer efforts. Pop on, Masala Pop!
