FAQ - Product
Do Popadelics contain any psychedelics?
No! Although our snacks are out of this world, they do not contain any psilocybin, CBD, or THC. However, a portion of all purchases supports the Fun-Gal Snacks Foundation, which in turn supports research toward the use of psychedelics to treat mental health, via the Johns Hopkins Institute for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research.

In addition, shiitake mushrooms are our primary ingredient, and they are naturally gluten free.
Are Popadelics non-GMO?

Are Popadelics kosher?
Yes! Popadelics Crunchy Mushroom Chips and its three flavors (Trippin’ Truffle Parm, Twisted Thai Chili, and Rad Rosemary & Salt) are kosher certified via the Orthodox Union (OU). Please note that the certification became official after some of our packaging was printed, but we can confirm all product has been produced in the same facility and with the same ingredients that have been certified.
How big is each pack?
Bags come in two sizes: 1.4 oz or 4 oz; each 1.4 oz bag contains a single serving while each 4.0 oz bag contains 4 individual 1 oz servings (about 9 chips per serving).
Where are Popadelics made?
Popadelics are processed (i.e. seasoned and packaged) in Illinois, USA. We work with a US-based specialty ingredients distributor to source our shiitake mushrooms, which primarily originate from China. All imported ingredients are first inspected for safety and standards at our distributor's domestic facility before they come to us, and our distributor is certified via Level 2 Safe Quality Food Institute (SQF2) standards. What that means: they’ve been certified in a rigorous, globally recognized program to ensure they source safe, quality food products. What that really means: they're strict! All of our other ingredients are domestically (US) sourced.
How should I store my Popadelics?
Popadelics are ready-to-eat and are best stored in ambient (room temperature) environments in a cool, dry place. Store and enjoy as you would any other crunchy chip/snack!
How are Popadelics so crunchy?
Our unique vacuum frying cooking method makes our snack better-for-you than other mainstream snacks while also producing our signature crunch! Vacuum frying uses a combination of pressure and hot oil. Compared to traditional frying, vacuum fried foods cook at much lower temperatures. This can help food absorb less oil and retain more of their color, nutrients, texture, and flavor.
I don’t like mushrooms. Will I like Popadelics?
We dare you to try Popadelics - mushroom lovers and doubters alike are raving about our snacks. We promise you haven’t had shiitake mushrooms like this before (or this crunchy)!
