We hand roast and flavor gourmet popped lotus seeds locally in Chicago. We've come up with exciting and fun flavors that only use the best, natural ingredients. We embrace the alternative lifestyle and enable people with allergies and intolerances to also indulge in wholesome super snacks.

"There’s a new Pop in town! foxxpop - popped lotus superfood! Ripe with anti-oxidants and 5g plant protein, we’re a nutrient-dense, gluten & allergen-free, on-the-go snack! Made for rebels like you; by divas like us!"

tell us about your connection to Chicago. your neighborhood.

Ever since we've immigrated to Chicago we've called it our home. We are passionate about giving back to our community and empowering, inspiring and enabling women along the way.

what do you love about your business, your industry.

We love food and want to create not just good, but great for you and socially responsible, sustainably sourced products.

tell us about your inspiration - space, smells, colors, textures.

We are bold, and audacious divas who are rebels with a cause, to create superfoods in revolutionary flavors. We are inspired by our mother's tenacious spirit and a hungry curiosity for the art and science of food.

what advice do you have for other creative entrepreneurs?

Leap and the net will appear!

share a favorite quote, a mantra.

"We should always have three friends in our lives: one who walks ahead, who we look up to and follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journey; and then, one who we reach back for and bring along after we've cleared the way." - Michelle Obama

what's the most common question you get about your business?

"How did you come up with this idea?"

tell us about your process for making + creating.

We like to create indulgent flavors that are quirky, foxxy, and most importantly, delicious.

What we love about our industry.

We are foodies and crave food from all over the world. We love to indulge, cook, and won't stop talking about it! Luckily, we've found other food enthusiasts who are just as passionate, ambitious and creative as we are! 

name 3 local makers/brands that inspire you and why.

Jeni’s because of their originality; Beadniks's because of their creativity; and the bold, women-centric Boomchickapop.

what is the best advice you've ever been given and how has it shaped you and your business?

No matter the effort; it's the results that count. This ideology of just starting and not waiting for everything to fall into place perfectly, has propelled us to manifest our brand and share our superfood snack with the world.
