Snack’ons LLC, based in Scotch Plains, NJ is a startup gourmet snack food company formed in 2014. Snack’ons reinvent the traditional crouton into the “crouton that you can snack on” by using artisanal bread, natural ingredients, new flavors and snack-on-the-go, resealable packaging. Initial launch flavors are Chipotle BBQ, Cinnamon Sugar and Parmesan Garlic.
Although Snack'ons was born in 2014, the idea has its roots back to the 1980s when Eric went to summer camp in Maine. While summer camp memories often bring back visions of making friends, playing sports and creating arts and crafts, my memories include the formation of The Crouton Club. The mission of The Crouton Club was simple--enlist fellow campers who shared my desire for a crunchy, fun snack and to transform the crouton from a mere salad topping to its emboldened role as a full-fledged snack. Each day a member would be responsible for loading up plates of croutons for all members to enjoy.
Snack'ons Gives Back
Inspired by the incredible experience that summer camp offered, Snack’ons is proud to partner with the nonprofit organization SCOPE (Summer Camp Opportunities Promote Education) to help give kids, who otherwise couldn't afford it, the chance to experience the magic of camp. SCOPE has provided camp scholarships for more than 20,000 children from low income communities since 1991. To support SCOPE’s mission to provide children in need the edge to succeed in life through the summer camp experience, Snack’ons will donate a portion of sales proceeds to SCOPE.
