Yummy healthy snack!
Move over chips and crackers here’s a yummy healthy snack that’s even more tempting! Crunchy, a little or a lot of spice depending on which flavour you choose, super satisfying. Perfect for a work, school, or anytime snack. Yummy!
As a Nutritionist, it is rare for me to endorse a “processed” snack – but THESE are the exception!! Pokko snacks are hand-crafted with love and healthy intentions! All good ingredients, a healthy dose of fiber (we all need more fiber in our diets!), and filling protein.
And what is more? They taste delicious! A satisfying crunch, and a uniquely yummy flavour with every bite. It is my go-to-snack in the afternoons when I need something to get me from lunch to dinner. The only dangerous side to these snacks is that I have to try and not eat the whole bag at one sitting! Nutritionist, kid, and husband-approved!!
🙂 Highly Recommend! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My 7 year old is addicted! (and us…)
Don’t know what else to say – chickpea and rice flour, that’s high in protein!? she can’t stop eating them (and we don’t mind). I haven’t found another snack with the savory crunch and texture – it’s insane.
A very tasty and highly addictive little treat
A very tasty and highly addictive little treat, but I’m not complaining! 🙂 I love that there are simple clean ingredients and not full of artificial preservatives and colouring. These are great to feed the kids and rest of the family. Happy buyer!

Our rice and chickpeas are all sourced right here in Canada from Canadian farmers, and are Non-GMO.
Pokko is produced only from natural ingredients which do not contain any artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives.
Our asafetida seasoning contains a very small amount of wheat flour in order for it to be easily used for cooking. Our team has tested the gluten level a few times at a lab which has shown that it has an insignificant amount. However, we always advise to first consult your doctor and take precaution when eating Pokko, should you have any intolerance or allergy to gluten.
We will only use non-hydrogenated oils whether that is canola, soybean or sunflower oil. Usage of a specific oil will be based on the recent global commodity price volatility. All oils have been tested with Pokko to ensure our authentic taste does not change.
Yes they are. Nothing artificial about it! Our Kashmini chili peppers are imported from India, and they are as pure as you’ll get. Did you also know that Kashmiri chilis are rich in Vitamin C?
