Why we love it

Real talk: is your cheese puff made with real cheese? This delectable, crunchy snack is made with heirloom corn, organic cheddar cheese, and seasonings you can actually pronounce. We know what you're thinking: sometimes those "healthy" alternative snacks are lacking in the flavor department. Not to worry. The realest thing about these crunchies is their out-of-this-world cheesy, salty, scrumptious flavor.

How it does good

Counting on local corn farmers for success

The supply chain for corn farmers can be tricky to navigate. Often, they're competing with big, commercial farms. The Pipsnacks founders fell in love with unique qualities of heirloom corn and decided to work directly with small family farmers in the U.S. to source their special kernels. By relying on these farmers, their products have more nutritional value than commercially grown popcorn—and a better taste. Pipsnacks honors the history of heirloom corn farming by saving seeds from their harvests to replant later. They work with like-minded suppliers and prioritize treating people with respect. Plus, they make their packaging fully recyclable whenever they're able to.

  • supporting key causes

    Pipsnacks has partnered with Save with Stories to make donations to Save the Children and No Kid Hungry.
  • responsible sourcing

    Pipsnacks sources their heirloom corn from a small network of family farmers, and they use organic whey sourced from Wisconsin dairy farms as a byproduct of their milk production. They also upcycle corn byproducts from the cheese balls into crackers, which means they're able to use 99.9% of all the heirloom corn they purchase for a virtually no-waste process.
  • Certified Non-GMO

How to use it

Grab them on your snack break or put a handful on the side of your sandwich.

When you're done...

About the Brand



Once upon a time, Jen and her brother Jeff were packing up her Chicago apartment when they found a bag of teeny, tiny heirloom corn kernels. After popping this special little bag of corn, they loved it so much that they found the family farmer who grew it (he was in Indiana). A little while later, Jen, Jeff, and Jeff’s wife Teresa launched their company: the women-owned, minority-owned, family-owned, really great little thing called Pipsnacks.

Hard not to compare to their more processed cousins ...

These taste pretty good, but the crunch is a bit hard, and it's difficult not to compare the flavor to the more intense, glaringly orange "cheese" powder I'm used to from the more processed big-name products. The flavor on these is certainly more subtle, and while they're pretty good, they're not something I get excited to have as a snack, so they end up sitting in the cabinet for a while. So, if you like the experience of a crunchy snack with subtle flavor, you might really enjoy these, but if you're expecting a more sustainable alternative to Cheetos, then you're not going to a get anything close to a 1-to-1 swap.

Very much like their cheeseball cousins, terrific but not cheesey/salty enough

Dump any macandcheese powder that you may have into the bag for real perfection!
