“KITCHEN GOURMET” – Snak King Has a True Passion for Snacking!

Mar 20, 2020
Snak King has a robust portfolio of trusted snack brands, including El Sabroso, Vitner’s, The Whole Earth, Jensen’s Orchard, Granny Goose, and Nut-ibles. The products range from traditional potato chips and cheese puffs to pork cracklins, organic kettle corn and vegetable chips. All these products may be found across the country in grocery stores and local markets.

El Sabroso is a brand born in the heart of Los Angeles with a mission to bring the flavors of Mexico to consumers of all ages and backgrounds. From its Pork Rinds to its Guaccachip and Salsitas chips, to its line of homestyle, extra-crispy Cantina Especial chips, it remains resolutely committed to that very same founding mission.

Founded in 1926, the C.J. Vitner Company was originally just five storefront shops on the south side of Chicago. After the Great Depression which hnearly wiped out this family-oowned business, they began selling a new kind of product directly to taverns – snacks. Since Snak King’s acquisition of the C.J. Vitner Company in 2011, the brand has grown to include over 100 products. Today, Vitner’s Sizzlin’ Hot Crunchy Kurls, Crunchy Nuggets, and Cheese Twists can be found at neighborhood outlets, with the same taste Chicagoans remember being served back in the day.

The Whole Earth brand was born with the sole purpose of creating snacks that honor nature and our bodies, being committed to crafting simple, clean, and delicious products, including Organic Green Pea Snack Crisps, Sweet & Salty Organic Kettle Corn, and a multitude of tasty tortilla chips.

Snak King created the Jensen’s Orchard brand in 1998. Today, this line of snacks focuses on vegetable-flavored products. All the snacks under this brand are bursting with flavor – flavors you would find growing in orchards and gardens, including Veggie Crisps and Veggie Straws.

Great snacks at great value is the promise of the Granny Goose brand. The original company was founded in 1946 in Oakland, CA. by Matthew Barr. He used the Mother Goose icon in the logo and name to give a sense of nostalgia. Just as Mother Goose provides a collection of memorable fairytales, so too does Granny Goose provide a memorable cornucopia of snacks. Snak King acquired the Granny Goose brand in 2000 and continues to honor the original brand with a delicious range of snacks, including a wide assortment of potato chips and popcorn products, tortilla chips, corn chips, kettle corn, caramel corn, cheese puffs, and onion rings, each sold at affordable prices.

The Nut-ibles brand is relatively new, born in 2018 with the purpose of creating a fun, baked corn snack coated with rich, nut-based flavors. Not only are Nut-ibles a delight to the senses but they also deliver five grams of protein per serving, and are gluten-free. Enjoy the new Nut-ibles Nut Butter Puffs, with peanut butter baked into the product, which can be found at a store near you or check out the Snak King online store.

Snak King is a reliable brand with a commitment to customer satisfaction and excellence. Best yet, there is always something new and exciting happening at Snak King. For more information on Snak King and its products please visit www.snakking.com.
