As many of you already know, P-nuff Crunch made an outstanding appearance last year on ABC’s show, Shark Tank, and secured a deal with Mark Cuban, who accepted an offer for 25 percent equity in the company. Mark, along with the other sharks, were impressed with the amazing flavor and clean ingredient list of P-nuff Crunch, which ultimately led to the deal being made.
But P-nuff Crunch isn’t the only food product that has left an impression on the sharks. In this article, we’re going to share some of the other food products that were successful on Shark Tank, starting with our very own P-nuff Crunch.
- P-nuff Crunch / Season 12 Episode 2
P-nuff Crunch is a healthy peanut puff snack filled with plant-based protein, made with all natural, gluten-free, non-GMO ingredients. Mark Cuban admitted to already being a huge fan of the tasty crunch of P-nuff, and jumped on the opportunity to invest, offering $400,000. They can be found online or in 450 stores nationwide.
2. Nuts 'n More / Season 4, Episode 18
Much like Pnuff's founder, Dr. Juan Salinas, the founder of Nuts ‘N More, Peter Ferreira was also a fitness enthusiast desperate to create a healthy and tasty snack. Nuts ‘N More carries a range of high protein natural nut butters and pb powders with more than 15 flavors to choose from. Appearing on the show in 2013, Peter accepted an offer from Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec at 35% equity for $250,000. Nuts ‘N More has been extremely successful, earning more than $30 million in sales.
3. Bantam Bagels / Season 6, Episode 13
Bantam Bagels created bite-sized stuffed bagels that piqued the interest of Lori Greiner, who offered $275,000 for a 25% stake in the company. Straight out of New York City, Bantam Bagels captures everything America loves about bagels, and as a result of Shark Tank, have now been able to extend their line to egg bites, pancakes and more!
4. Loliware / Season 7, Episode 2
While not directly a food product, Loliware sells seaweed-based edible drinking cups to replace single-use plastic cups that are served at events and contribute to 33 billion plastic cups ending up at landfills each year. This sustainable product didn’t go unnoticed by the sharks, with Mark Cuban offering a $600,000 investment.
Loliware has now stopped selling edible cups, focusing their business predominantly on reusable straws.
5. Pipcorn / Season 6, Episode 9
Pipcorn is another tasty, healthy snack made out of non-GMO corn, founded by two siblings - Jeff and Jen Martin. Pipcorn were a hit on Shark Tank, landing a deal from Barbara Corcoran who offered $200,000 in exchange for a 10 percent stake. Pipcorn were very successful after Shark Tank, and even got a mention from Oprah on her 2012 list of favorite things!
6. Three Jerks Jerky / Season 7, Episode 5
Three Jerks Jerky was created by Daniel Fogelson and Jordan Barrocas, who wanted to create high quality gourmet meat snacks. After receiving an offer from Daymond John for $100,000 for 15% equity, the company was able to expand and are now in 2,000 stores nationwide.
