We all grow quite a bit over the course of our lives, and LesserEvil is no different. We have evolved through several stages, taking our snacks along with us. Take a look.

2005 -

We got our start with snacks and slogans that speak to the inner child. “Snack like a kid again” was carefree, indulgent, and probably not the best long-term mantra. This was our story for over 6 years, but in 2011, we shifted.

2011 -

We decided to open our own factory to control our own destiny. We pivoted to low fat, low calorie indulgence with real ingredients. It’s the first step in embracing better-for-you snacking, long before the world woke up to its importance. Not yet organic, but certainly better than alternative snacks in the market.

2014 -

In 2014, we said goodbye to indulgence and hello to premium ingredients (and gurus as well). Organic, non-GMO verified, truly better-for-you snacks. This era also introduced a fresh idea that spoke to us: making the world a little less evil in our own way by giving people healthier snacktime choices.


The light bulb moment: Snacking as a vessel for mindful moments. The natural evolution of a belief system that has been unfolding for years now. Sourcing highest quality of sustainable ingredients to make best-in-class snacks for you to enjoy in your daily ritual.
