“I’m a health nut and enjoy eating healthy complex carbs like sweet potatoes and brown rice, so I loved the idea of creating an air-popped chip with these high-quality ingredients,” said Mark Andrus, founder of Mark’s Mindful Munchies. “Snacking should be fun, delicious and mindful, and our Sweet Potato Chips definitely check all the boxes. We are proud to have created a snack that’s good for you without compromising on flavor.”
