Granpa Po's Nutra Nuts
Organic Food Store in Los Angeles, CA
Popcorn is the main product of Celle, San Vito; a tiny village of two hundred people set high in the mountains of Southern Italy. Michael Puorro left this village in 1895 to discover a new life in America. His love of popcorn was handed down to his son Noel (now known as Grandpa Po) In 1963, Grandpa Po, a chemist, wanted to build a nutritional snack food as an alternative to candy for his six kids. Po experimented with popcorn and invented an exceptional golden half popped nugget. He combined them with soybeans for added nutrition, decades before they were popular, and sprinkled the mix lightly with sea salt (slightly unsalted as Po prefers) and Nutra Nuts were born.
