March 16, 2020

Data-driven award places LesserEvil’s organic Himalayan Gold Popcorn among America’s top 15 snacks

DANBURY, CT –March 16, 2020– SnackNation recently announced that LesserEvil has won a SnackNation Insights award for Best Emerging Popcorn & Puff brand. LesserEvil’s Himalayan Gold Popcorn was selected as one of the most popular snacks in the popcorn and puff category among emerging brands, thanks to its carefully selected clean ingredients, high-quality standards, and delicious flavor. 

The SnackNation Insights Awards aggregate millions of proprietary data points and customer insights from the past year to decide the country’s most popular snacks across eight different categories. SnackNation identified one emerging and one established winner within each category, with a single winner named for “Overall Best Packaging” - a total of 15 winners across eight distinct categories. This is the second year SnackNation has held the awards.

“We are honored to be recognized by the like-minded members of SnackNation who love healthy snacks just as much as we do,” said LesserEvil President and CEO, Charles Coristine. “Listening to our customers is really important to us, which is why we are grateful for SnackNation’s partnership as they afford us the opportunity to not only reach a community of health-conscious consumers, but also gain valuable feedback and insights to support our ongoing business decisions.”

All snacks that appear in SnackNation boxes must meet industry-leading quality standards, pass the SnackNation internal tasting panel, and comply with the company’s banned ingredient list.  While other industry snack awards focus exclusively on nutritional claims and content, SnackNation’s proprietary analysis is based upon consumer insights fueled by the company’s national data platform SnackNation Insights.  The formula used to identify winners factored both overall product rating and purchase intent data.
