Gracious Gifts, Inc. was founded in 1994 in Minneapolis, MN by entrepreneur and creative artist, Ronni Feuer who developed FunkyChunky®. Known for its high quality ingredients and hand-made approach, FunkyChunky Chocolate Caramel Popcorn quickly became a favorite gourmet snack. Under the leadership of Ronni’s husband, Sandy Feuer, FunkyChunky has grown to include new flavors such as ChipZelPop, Candy Cane Popcorn, Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn, Peanut Butter Pretzels, and Fix-Mix, many of which contain all natural ingredients. Ronni’s vision will continue under the new leadership with a percentage of proceeds from the sale of “Ronni’s Popcorn” benefiting women who struggle with breast cancer across the nation.
