Classic Foods' Endeavor For Excellence Yields Innovative Results.

Classic Foods, Inc., a North American snack food manufacturing company, is pleased to announce the expansion of their California Classics™ line of healthier, smarter snack foods. The growth comes as a reflection of the family-owned company’s philosophy to help create a better quality of life for future generations.

California Classics™ was created four years ago in response to an epidemic of childhood obesity and in an effort to improve the health of our children. The second generation of these delicious snacks complies with the stringent requirements set by the School Nutrition Standards Act, and is made only with all-natural ingredients. Additionally, California Classics™ contain no cholesterol, preservatives, trans fat, MSG, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or colors. Four years later, the snacks come with high fiber, lower fat, and more flavor, all thanks to the R&D team at our Irvine location that is now ready to go national.

“We created snacks that are a healthier alternative to popular snacks, but still satisfy children’s cravings,” said Classic Foods, Inc. Director of Innovation Sam Kilgore. “There’s no point in making a healthy snack for children if they won’t want to eat it. California Classics™ are genuinely tasty snacks that just happen to be quite a bit healthier.”

California Classics™ is a smarter alternative to the many unhealthy snacks that are so readily available in schools. Excessively salty and sugary snacks are the contributing factors to childhood obesity and diabetes and can be detrimental to our children’s health. With the tagline “Healthier. Yummier. Smarter,” it is plain to see that California Classics™ make the perfect school snack. California Classics™ are available in four delicious flavors: Cheese Balls, Hot & Spicy Cheese Balls, Caramel Crunch, and Apple Pie Crunch – more flavor options to fit any taste palette!

Classic Foods, Inc. is a family owned manufacturer of top quality branded snack foods, who is passionate about a healthy world for generations to come. Distributed throughout the United States and Canada, brands include Kettle Classics® Potato Chips, Stoned Classics® Organic Tortilla Chips, Baked Classics® Potato Crisps and California Classics™ School Snacks. Classic Foods products are available in traditional food-service outlets, institutional locations, and national food chains. For more information visit
