Our Story

SNACKLINS was unceremoniously born in the back kitchen of a Washington D.C. barbeque joint sometime in 2015. Former radio personality and chef, Samy Kobrosly, became obsessed with the idea of a meat-free pork rind after joking with a friend about his inability to partake in the classic snack given his Muslim upbringing. After rounds of experimentation, he landed on a simple recipe of yuca, mushrooms, and onions to create a crunchy, airy, 100% vegan and plant-based crisp that resembled a pork rind. The unique ingredients and process used for making SNACKLINS resulted in something truly unique: a grain-free, simple-ingredient, scoop-shaped crisp with fewer calories than traditional pork rinds and potato chips.

Soon, people started taking notice and SNACKLINS found its way to local bar counters and grocery shelves. In October 2019, Samy bolted through the doors of ABC’s Shark Tank and secured a deal with Mark Cuban. And just a few years later in November 2021, SNACKLINS re-appeared on Shark Tank for an update episode.
