About SuperSeedz

Rooted in homegrown beginnings, the idea for SuperSeedz was cooked up in 2003 by founder Kathie Pelliccio in her own kitchen. Kathie, a mother of five, chef and entrepreneur, was experimenting with dry-roasted pumpkin seeds as a healthy snack for her family. Years later, the business has since grown from a small seedling into a nationwide brand, encouraging and empowering consumers to never snackrifice taste for nutrition. Currently available in nine mouthwatering flavors – Sea Salt, Super Spicy, Somewhat Spicy, Tomato Italiano, Curious Curry, Coco Joe, Cinnamon & Sugar, Really Naked and Maple Sugar & Sea Salt – SuperSeedz are dry-roasted in small batches without shells, using a proprietary, artisanal pan-roasting technique that bakes the seasoning right in to each seed. The result is an enhanced snacking experience with unparalleled taste and a delightfully addicting crunch. SuperSeedz are sold at grocery, health food and gourmet food retailers across the U.S., including Whole Foods, Sprouts and Safeway, Inc. stores. They can also be purchased online at
