Open Road Snacks’ all-natural Poplets Sea Salt & Butter featured in July/August issue

DENVER, CO. (June 24, 2013) — Open Road Snacks™, a national producer and distributor of better-for-you snacks, today announced that SHAPE Magazine has named Poplets®, a gluten-free toasted corn center snack, as a winner for SHAPE magazines 2013 Snack Awards. Poplets Sea Salt & Butter is featured in SHAPE magazines July / August issue. The magazine issue hits stands today.

Every year SHAPE magazine chooses healthy snacks to be featured in its Best Snack Awards issue. The snacks must adhere to a specific set of rules –200 calories or less per serving, 0 grams of trans fat, low in saturated fat, no more than 400 milligrams of sodium, and offer nutritional extras, such as portioned-controlled packs.

“It is an incredible honor to have Poplets named as a healthy and delicious snack option by SHAPE Magazine, a publication we at Open Road Snacks have used to help us make healthier life options. We pride ourselves on creating better-for-you snacks that still taste great, and we’re humbled by this award,” said Karen Bradley, CEO of Open Road Snacks. “Poplets are a fantastic crunchy treat that are perfect for the house, the office, school lunches or while on the go, and we are thrilled to have SHAPE Magazine recognize that.”

Created with patent-pending technology, Poplets deliver a satisfying crunch and a great corn center taste with more fiber and less fat and calories than the leading corn kernel snacks. And since they don’t contain hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup, highly-processed ingredients or flavor substitutes, Poplets are a better-for-you alternative to traditional chips and crackers. Made from certified non-GMO corn and in a nut-free facility, Poplets are a delicious and nutritious on-the-go snack option for everyone.

Poplets will be available for purchase online and in leading snack retailers beginning July 1, and will initially be offered in three flavors – Asiago Ranch, Sea Salt & Butter, and Chile Picante.
