SNACKLINS® started as a joke between friends to create a vegan pork rind. But what began as a joke has turned into an intentionally delicious (and accidentally healthy) low-calorie crisp made from real, fresh ingredients: yuca, mushrooms, and onions. While traditional chips and so-called “healthy” snacks are high in calories, SNACKLINS® are under 100 calories a serving; the company encourages fans to “Eat The Whole Bag®!” The crisps are gluten and grain free, vegan, kosher, non-GMO and unlike any other snack food available.
SNACKLINS® previously received an investment on Shark Tank from Mark Cuban and was rated among the top food trends of 2019 by Whole Foods. It is currently available for purchase on Snacklins.com, Amazon, and retailers including Whole Foods (Northeast and Mid-Atlantic), Stop & Shop, Erewhon, MOM’s Organic, and select ShopRite locations.

SNACKLINS was unceremoniously born in the back kitchen of a Washington D.C. barbecue joint sometime in 2015. Former radio personality and chef, Samy Kobrosly, became obsessed with the idea of a meat-free pork rind after joking with a friend about his inability to partake in the classic snack given his Muslim upbringing. After rounds of experimentation, he landed on a simple recipe of yuca, mushrooms, and onions to create a crunchy, airy, 100% vegan and plant-based crisp that resembled a pork rind.
The unique ingredients and process used for making SNACKLINS resulted in something even better: a low-calorie, grain-free, scoop-shaped crisp unlike any other snack food available. Soon, people started taking notice and SNACKLINS found its way to local bar counters and grocery shelves. In October 2019, Samy bolted through the doors of ABC’s Shark Tank and secured a deal with Mark Cuban. Since then, SNACKLINS has grown all over the country but we remain a small team committed to making delicious, healthy snacks that people love.

Snacklins, a healthier, vegan pork rind, started out as something of a joke. Now in 1,300 stores, the company behind it has moved into a market far beyond health foods.
Why Mark Cuban decided to invest in a tiny food company that started its journey making vegan pork rinds.
After its debut on Shark Tank, SNACKLINS takes on a rebrand in 2020.
