Little Bear Snack Foods is “Good for the Earth, and good for you!” Their philosophy was inspired by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Alex Carrel’s statement that soil is the basis for all human life. They feel that all life is healthy to the degree that the Earth itself is healthy. Little Bear makes a line of organic tortilla chips. Varieties include Organic Blue Tortilla Chips, Unsalted Organic Blue Tortilla Chips, Organic White Corn Tortilla Chips, Unsalted Organic White Corn Tortilla Chips, Organic Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips, and Unsalted Organic Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips. They also make two types of Organic Microwave Popcorn. Choose from Organic No Salt No Oil Microwave Popcorn or Organic No Oil Added Lightly Salted Microwave Popcorn. Two of their varieties of Plain Popcorn are organic: Lite 50% Less Oil Organic Popcorn and Lite No Salt No Oil Organic popcorn. The rest of their snack products are not organic. They make Buttery Popcorn, White Cheddar Popcorn, and Lite Buttery Popcorn. They have Original Corn Chips, Lite Cheddar Puffs, Extra Crunchy Crunchitos, and Original Baked Cheddar Puffs. Little Bear also makes refried beans, fat free refried beans, and a line of seasoning and gravy mixes, and taco and tostada shells. You cannot buy Little Bear Snack Food products from their website, so the price could vary depending on where you buy it at.
Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. Little Bear pops their popcorn with hot air, not hot oil. It is a more natural way to pop, and hot air doesn’t contain any calories. Little Bear “supports farmers who rotate their crops, naturally replenish the nutrients of the soil, avoid the use of toxic chemicals and meet our high standards for organically grown foods.” Little Bear Snack Foods is part of The Hain Celestial Group, which has its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado.
