Ka Pop!

ka popDustin Finkel wants to get some bang for the Sharks’ bucks when he pitches Ka Pop, his snack foods made from ancient grains, in Shark Tank episode 1115. Finkel is a health nut and Cross Fit instructor, but he loves eating. After binging on some so-called “healthy chips one night, he thought there had to be healthier snack food out there.

He had some ancient grains in his house, so he started experimenting making chips. When his finicky, six-year-old son liked them, he knew he was on to something. He started handing out samples to friends and family and they liked them too, so he started making Ka Pop his business.

Ka Pop chips are made with ancient grains which have been genetically unmodified for millenia. Finkel specifically uses Sorghum in his products. Proponents of ancient grains say that they are rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Some nutritionists state that they are not inherently more healthy than modern grains, and that ancient and modern grains have similar health benefits when eaten as whole grains. Irregardless, the snacks are tasty and Finkel wants to get them out to the masses.

Ka Pop chips are made from 100% USA sourced, ancient grain sorghum. They sell for $3.99 for a three ounce bag. They’re cheaper when you buy in volume. The chips are available at Rouses Markets, some Whole Foods, some mom and pop stores and limited 7-11 stores. They’re also available online at Amazon. Finkel likely wants a Shark’s cash and expertise to get broader retail distribution. Will a Shark pop for these chips?
