Kickstarter: Quinn Popcorn

Want a crash course on the “miracles” of modern industrial food science? Then take a gander at the ingredients of a bag of big brand microwave popcorn.

True North Nuts

Healthy snacking through the day is a great way to keep your metabolism in gear. The problem is, Doritos and Kit-Kat bars are the spawn of the devil. And let’s face it, as tasty as almonds are, they tend to get flavor-blasé after the ten dozenth serving. My latest snack-lution are True North Nuts. They’re…
