A MODERN TWIST ON A LIL' ANCIENT GRAIN
We love to reimagine! Classic flavors, satisfying textures, the simple goodness of ancient grains. Our favorite? Sorghum!
So, let’s shine the spotlight on sorghum. 10,000-years-old, drought resilient, gluten free—a grain worth celebrating! And its possibilities are endless. Flours, flakes, syrups, and more. We choose to pop it!
Here's our promise—no GMOs, no funky corn additives, and never a compromise on spectacular taste.
WAIT, BUT WHAT'S SORGHUM?!
Sorghum is a 10,000-year-old grain. It’s part of the grass family and has remained largely unchanged since back-in-the-day. It's a drought resilient crop that plays an important role in regenerative agriculture!
Originally from northeast Africa, it’s now grown all over the US! And sorghum does it all: flours, puffs, syrups...even use it for biofuel! We choose to pop it!
No funky cross-breeding, no nutrient loss. Sorghum is one of the rare crops that’s remained untouched over time. It’s just how nature intended: versatile, hearty, and pure as can be.
Dry climate? Minimal water? Not a problem for sorghum, a grain that naturally conserves our precious water resources. Waxy leaves help to regulate the plant’s temperature, and their extra-small pores keep moisture locked in. A fibrous root system extends deep into the soil to help the plant gather every drop of water it can.
Sorghum’s superpower? Capturing harmful airborne carbons and enhancing soil health. Regenerative agriculture values soil health, biodiversity, and resilience in the face of climate change. Snacking on sorghum’s a great way to help protect our air quality and agricultural wellbeing!
GROWN ON THE HOME TURF
They call it the “sorghum belt!” From South Dakota to Southern Texas, it makes up the largest sorghum supply on the planet. We work with our much-loved American farmers to bring you our delicious Lil’ Pops.
This grain of the past is the grain of the future!
SO, HOW’D IT ALL BEGIN?!
Well...from the Chasin Family Farm to my Brooklyn home kitchen, I’ve always adored this lil’ grain! Since I was 7 years old, I’ve been gluten free, so sorghum’s been my go-to snack.
The Lil’ Pops sprung from my forever-long love of inventive, gluten free snacking, and entrepreneurial spirit! As a lil’ girl selling painted rocks and fresh-squeezed lemonade, I found joy in sharing such simple creations.
Join me in celebrating the grown-up me’s creation—The Lil’ Pops, a simply delicious snack.
