The State Bird Crunch Story

Our State Bird Crunch was developed with Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski, the James Beard Award-winning chefs of the Michelin-starred restaurant State Bird Provisions in San Francisco. It was inspired by a quinoa dish in their restaurant. When they have leftover quinoa, they crisp it and mix it with seeds and spices to make a crispy, tasty topping that gets sprinkled over new dishes in their restaurant each night. We loved the tremendous flavor and texture of this topping, so together we turned it into snackable, protein-packed, crunchy quinoa bites in three flavors—Sea Salt, Almond Rosemary and Furikake. We worked hard to make our bites crushable, so now you can add the same flavor and texture to any of your dishes at home, or simply enjoy this savory, plant-based complete protein snack wherever life takes you.
