I’m really excited to share this treat with you. Perhaps ridiculously so. First and foremost, the product is awesome! The kettle corn is crispy and light. The tagline on the bag claims “the perfect balance of sweetness & salt” and it is absolutely true. Angie’s product has four perfectly simple ingredients: popcorn, corn oil, sugar and sea salt. This is seriously the kind of treat that you might not be able to stop eating, and at less than 150 calories for a two-cup serving, you can enjoy it without having to schedule an extra workout at the gym! One of the small things we love about Angie’s Authentic Kettle Corn is the resealable packaging which means we never have to search for a “chip clip” when we are through snacking. Genius!
Angie and her husband, Dan, have a great story. They started selling their kettle corn on a part-time basis to build college funds for their two small children. Their decision to gift members of the Minnesota Vikings with bags of kettle corn changed the company’s course. Very soon, Angie’s was the official kettle corn of the Minnesota Vikings and fans were clamoring for the snack outside of the stadium. Angie and Dan saw an opportunity to take their part-time operation to a full-time business, and they now employ more than 150 people and sell their product in retail outlets in all 50 states. Angie and Dan have appeared on Martha Stewart’s television program and their kettle corn was featured in an issue of Food and Wine.
Giving back to the community is an important part of Angie’s business culture. They are active in charitable ventures, as are many artisans. They focus much of their effort on organizations that support education and the needs of children. In addition to their business and charitable commitments, they consider their responsibility as parents to their two children as their most important role.
