Noting the high demand for foods that are nutritious and also taste good, Livio Bisterzo and Green Park Brands’ first product has been exactly what customers are looking for. When thinking of popular snacks, you probably don’t think of peas. While not typically known for their popularity, Green Park Brands has created a deliciously popular snack with one of their most successful products: Hippeas. A play on the term “hippies”, Hippeas not only taste good, but do good. They are targeted towards millennials who are attracted to trendy products but also want to lead healthy lifestyles. Made of puffed chickpeas, Hippeas are completely organic and gluten free. They come in a variety of trendy flavors like Sriracha Sunshine, Maple Haze and Vegan White Cheddar.

The success of Hippeas has been immediate and Livio Bisterzo and Green Park Brands are expanding their products. They recently partnered with Ugly Drinks to release a line of unsweetened sparkling waters made with real fruit.
