Pack #4: Denver Snack Box


  1. Denver Chip Co.Denver Chip Co. is a family-owned expansion of Broad Ripple Chip Co. located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Their chips are handmade from Idaho Russet potatoes, resulting in a larger, darker, and richer tasting chip. Their Sweet & Spicy chip won #1 chip in the country by the online publication Chip Review and was included in Food Network star Alton Brown's Holiday Guide where he called the chips "incredible"!
  2. Sweet Sweetz Back in 2019, a new dessert shop, Sweet Sweetz, was opened in the quiet Skyland neighborhood of Denver. The family-owned business is operated by Lodene Turner along with her daughters, Erin and Jamie. The shop is committed to a bigger mission that supports the local community by providing a positive gathering space for youth and families. Opening the shop has been a labor of love for Turner, whose childhood nickname was "Sweet Sweetz".
  3. On Tap KitchenLike many great ideas, On Tap Kitchen was inspired over several beers and empty stomachs. Co-founders Spencer Stackhouse and Ian Blasco decided they had to challenge the expectation that crunchy pretzels should be bland by instead crafting them from the perfect soft pretzel. The duo's snacks found success by winning a Good Food Award in 2020 and can be found in select small batch breweries and grocers!
  4. Morgan Handmade RationsBorn into a Navy family, Kyle Morgan enlisted in the Air Force upon graduating college.

He partnered with a local apiary to get the honey for these yummy treats!
