About Snack Pop: The original concept for Cookie Pop came about in 2015 when founder Frank Florio started putting OREOs on popcorn at his home in New Jersey. He immediately realized that the combination of cookies and popcorn was a winner. After a year of development, Florio and his team had perfected the recipe for the first commercialized cookie covered popcorn. The brand debuted its innovative flavored popcorn at Expo West, the annual natural products trade show in Anaheim, California in 2016, at which Cookie Pop became an instant hit. Since then it has been picked up by hundreds of retail locations. Snack Pop is currently under the SNAX-Sational Brands group umbrella, which consists of Snack Pop (Candy Pop and Cookie Pop), and Pasta Snacks. Jerry Bello, respected food industry entrepreneur is CEO of the SNAX-Sational Brands Group which he formulated in 2019. They initially offered two flavors in Cookie Pop, and their spin off Candy Pop launched in 2017 with their first flavor Butterfinger. In November 2019 they launched their second candy coated flavor exclusively at Sam’s Club, Candy Pop made with Twix® , followed by the debut of America’s #1 cookie OREO in February 2020 and in May the brand launched Candy Pop made with SNICKERS® candy, America’s #1 candy bar. New varieties continue to roll out with the next phase of flavors inclusive of Candy Pop made with M&M'S® Minis candies and Chips Ahoy! Cookie Pop.
