Episode 56

Interview with Dustin from KaPop! Snacks


Dustin Finkel, standing at 6’6, is the head KaPoP! At his startup, KaPop Snacks. His CEO position at his own gluten-free snack company has given him an appreciation of what a small company CEO brings to the table. He founded KaPop! Snacks as he was looking for a snack which was nutritious, clean and tasted great; however, a snack of this proportion was nowhere to be found.  Dustin created KaPop! Snacks with ancient grains to fill these three requirements. 


Listen in and find out about this amazing brand, how Dustin created his three flavors (my personal fav is salt and vinegar), and how you can get a hold of this great product in a shareable size (if you don’t eat them all yourself) and snack-sized 1 oz bags for an episode special of 20% off when you use the code TGF at checkout!


KaPop! Snacks Brand


Dustin is a CrossFit instructor, spent 15 years in CPG, and was previously an Investment Banker at Goldman Sachs. While at his corporate position, Dustin launched the first gluten-free product to go national with Gluten-Free Chex. 


Personally, he is a health enthusiast, he loves fitness, and loves eating even more! He is a CrossFit instructor and trains many of his neighbors and friends. He is constantly battling the desire to watch every ingredient that goes into his body with the desire to just enjoy eating! One night, he and a few friends gorged on “healthy chips” only to find out when they read the bag that the “healthy” snack was high in empty calories and bad fats. Surprisingly enough, they didn’t even taste that great. Justin knew there had to be a better way! He thought, “What if I could take the snacks everyone loves – like chips, snack bites, treats, and popcorn and just do them over with better ingredients?”. Being a Paleo enthusiast since 2007, he soon realized he had a bunch of ancient grains in his pantry. He thought, what if he could make a snack with ancient grains?
