We believe snacks aren’t just snacks, but are integral to living a happier, healthier, more purposeful life.
From our beginnings as two guys with a simple idea, to launching SnackNation in 2014, we’ve always made it our mission to find emerging, health conscious snack brands and connect them around the snack bowl with like-minded people. People craving a better alternative, a fuel that matches their fire and products with purpose. Now, with thousands of SnackNation members across the country, we’re on our way to creating a better world through the power of delicious, healthier snack choices.

Our Core Values
From our snack selection to our corporate culture and relationships, our goal is for everything we create and cultivate to live up to to the tenets of our Core Values. Because we know that what we do everyday determines our reputation, the level of success we achieve, and the positive impact we can make on people’s health and wellbeing.
Personal health is everything. Taking care of yourself so you can take care of others is more than okay, it’s vital. We believe and support practices that contribute to a healthy body, mind and spirit.
Grit is the stubborn refusal to quit and we’ve got it in spades. But we’re not about winning for winning’s sake. We live to give. And we work really really hard to ensure at the end of each day we gave all we’ve got. That’s our victory.
Joy & optimism make us all rich and we proactively search for ways to spread joy and optimism far and wide. Every day we strive to put genuine smiles on the faces of those we serve. Happiness is our hustle.
