Their Sugar Snap Peas are an ideal blend of savory and crunchy, making them the perfect anytime snack! Brothers All Natural starts with delicious, fresh Sugar Snap Peas, straight from the earth's prime growing region. Next, the fresh peas are sent directly through our state-of-the-art freeze-dried process, gently removing any water.

Lastly, the Freeze-Dried Snap Peas are perfectly seasoned with salt and pepper, transforming them into a delightfully light and flavorful snack.

Snack Spotlight: Life’s Grape® peanut butter dipped vine-dried grapes



Life's Grape® peanut butter dipped vine-dried grapes are crafted with our very own, signature Selma Pete grapes, which we affectionately call PBJ. They are reminiscent of the classic American sandwich we all love. They are delicious, rich, and creamy. The perfect snack to brighten up your day.

Simple Ingredients: Peanut butter flavored coating (cane sugar, RSPO certified palm oil, partially defatted peanut flour, nonfat dry milk, peanut oil, salt, soy lecithin), raisins, organic peanut flour, sea salt, RSPO certified palm oil.

Selma Pete grapes are dried hanging on the vine drinking up the California sun, just as Mother Nature intended. They never touch the ground. Long gone are the days of dried on the ground, clumpy, sunburnt raisins. Hello vine-dried grapes! The Selma Pete and vine drying process creates a sweeter, meatier, and juicier nutritious snack that everyone loves.

The Perks of our Peanut Butter dipped vine-dried grapes: 100% Real Fruit, Kosher, Sulfur/Preservative Free, Cholesterol Free, Trans Fat Free, Low Sodium, 110 Calories per Serving




About the Products
There is a new variety of grape, the Selma Pete, that has changed the name of the game. It is a cross between a Thompson Seedless, Fiesta and Muscat grape.

Selma Pete grapes are dried hanging on the vine under the shade of the canopy so they never touch the ground. Vine-drying allows the grape to remain juicy and delicate. Tada! Vine-dried grapes! Long gone are the days of dried on the ground, clumpy, sunburnt raisins.

Vine-drying paired with the Selma Pete grape creates a sweeter, meatier, juicier, all natural gummy bear like snack that you will love.

About the Company
Everyone has that one friend that is overly passionate about their work. That’s us, the crazy grape family! We're a multi-generational family that purchased our first vineyard over 30 years ago in the gorgeous Central Valley region of California. Since then, our grapes are our life and we aren’t afraid to shout it to the world!

We began planting Selma Pete vine-dried grapes for better agricultural sustainability, only to find this grape changed our view on snacking. We loved the sweet and juicy taste. Once we realized how delicious these grapes were, we started handing them out to all of our friends. After they tried them, it wasn’t long before those hands were coming back for more, more, and more!

We know good food comes from family farms, not factories. That’s why we grow, process, and package all our own grapes, so our friends and fans can have a flavorful and healthful snack. There’s nothing in our vine-dried grapes we’re not proud of!

We've shared our passion with our family and friends and have finally decided to share it with the world!

About the Company
Founded by Hannah McCollum, ChicP was set up to bring healthy, colourful dips to the food market. A hummus lover, tired of bland and unhealthy options, Hannah decided to combine her creative cooking and eagerness to help prevent food waste, into healthy, punchy vegetable hummus from surplus vegetables.

Over the last five years, Hannah has cooked for families in the UK and all over Europe, predominantly as a private chef. She would often convert the leftover Ottolenghi type salads into dips for the next meal. Nearly every day the question would be “what’s the dip of the day Hannah”?!

The inspiration behind ChicP was the overriding determination and passion to change the way we approach cooking and food waste.

Snack Spotlight: Kalahari Biltong Snacks



Kalahari Snacks, known for their South African inspired biltong, is a snack that will keep your taste buds wanting more. Packed with 32 grams of protein per bag, zero sugar/carbs, and only made with 6 ingredients – it’s a great overall snack to add to your pantry. You can buy Kalahari Biltong on Amazon OR directly on their site! Now, you might be asking yourself – what in the heck is biltong? Biltong is basically jerky’s fancy cousin. The biggest difference between beef jerky and biltong is the preparation. While jerky is cooked and heated for hours, biltong is air-dried for two to three weeks, spiced with simple ingredients and then thinly sliced (This also means, no added sugar – BINGO!).


About the Company:

Kalahari Biltong was started after the adventure of a lifetime – where three best friends traveled to South Africa to race a total of 175 miles in an Ironman and Ultra Marathon, all within 6 days. Upon arrival, our South African teammate introduced us to his homeland’s unofficial national treasure, Biltong.

After eating close to our body weight in Biltong we were hooked. Imagine the tenderness and texture of prosciutto, the lean protein of jerky, and the beef flavor of steak tartare. Being in awe of the depth of flavor, we were stunned when we learned of the sheer simplicity of ingredients and the inherently natural process of crafting Biltong.

It was this happy little accident. A puffy, crispy chip thing made from yuca, mushrooms and onions.

People loved the taste. They loved the flavor. Bars and grocers wanted it as a snack. Friends were asking for it. it was getting out of hand. We had something bigger. We had a real, crunchy chip that people loved.

We had a Snacklin.

Zesty Ranch and Sweet Onion & Mustard (MSRP $3.99 3oz., $1.99 1oz.) are now available on BadaBeanSnacks.com and Amazon. Stay tuned for more flavors coming soon.

Industry News: ParmCrisps and Thinsters Snack Food Brands Call Essex County Home



Trend-Setting Snack Brands on the Move to Montclair, NJ as Company Growth Accelerates

 MONTCLAIR, NJ (August 15, 2019)That’s How We Roll, LLC, parent company of unparalleled snack brands ParmCrisps and Thinsters, announced today that it has relocated its home office to Montclair, New Jersey. The move is a result of the company’s unprecedented growth and is a reflection of the major movement internally. Expecting continued growth and heightened elevation of the company’s presence as an innovative snack food powerhouse, That’s How We Roll, LLC now calls 214 Glenridge Ave. in Montclair, New Jersey home.

The move to Montclair is a response to the impressive and rapid growth experienced by That’s How We Roll, LLC. Including the areas of employee count and revenue. There has been a recent and growing desire for a transition to a new flagship home office. Not only does the company’s present move offer space for the company’s current size, but it also allows for continued growth.

“Montclair is ideal for us because, not only are we familiar with the small town feel of Essex County due to our previous office space in Fairfield, but we also value Montclair’s diverse cultural heritage and the values the town upholds,” explains Samir Patel, CFO of That’s How We Roll, LLC. “There aren’t too many office spaces right in the heart of downtown Montclair and we were fortunate to partner with Saxum Real Estate who understood what we wanted for our team and the community we wanted to be a part of. They saw our vision for the space on Glenridge Avenue and made it happen.”

It was important for That’s How We Roll, LLC. that the company be headquartered in a city that stands among fellow entrepreneurs, as well as among other small, but growing, businesses with the same desire for growth. That’s How We Roll, LLC. also found a robust and diverse talent pool in the town of Montclair, appealing to the company’s plans for expansion.

That’s How We Roll, LLC.’s innovation has been driven by its two legacy brands: ParmCrisps and Thinsters. ParmCrisps is the first no sugar, no gluten, Keto-friendly, low-carb snack made from real, oven-baked cheese. In efforts to keep in stride with major snack food brands and flavor trends, ParmCrisps continues to disrupt the better-for-you snack category with low-carb snacks with full flavor. Meanwhile, Thinsters is a cookie that checks all the boxes. Made with real butter, real sugar and simple ingredients, Thinsters offers realness, snackability and flavor to the discerning snack food enthusiast.
