Ips Snacks Hires CEO & Selects New Agency of Record

Los Angeles, CA (February 2016) — Ips Snacks, a leading brand of protein-packed chips, has perfected its line of protein snacks. This year the brand launches its new, light protein chip recipe, which provides 6 g of protein per serving and half the fat of fried chips, and it announces its newest product –protein popcorn. Protein, named one of the top 5 food trends of 2016 by the Specialty Food Association[1], is now available in delicious, convenient snack form with Ips Chips and Popcorn. The brand’s mission is to eliminate senseless snacking with satisfying chips and popcorn that delight the taste buds and provide the nutrition the body craves.


Each 1oz portion of this patent-pending Pressure-Puff process is equivalent to the protein available in one egg. Previously eggs were the basis of this unique snack, which have now been eliminated and these light, crispy chips are now made with whey protein to provide the essential amino acids which cannot be made organically by the human body, but rather must be obtained through diet.[2] Further, unlike plant protein sources, whey is completely bio-available. This unique and delicious Ips recipe provides satiating chips to fuel the body.

In addition to improving the Ips chip recipe, the company has enhanced the leadership team by naming a new CEO, Adam Kamenstein. Mr. Kamenstein joined the team in August 2015 bringing knowledge and experience from leading al alcoholic spirits brand and serving as a business strategist and consultant to other consumer-facing brands. He built this brand from concept to sub-category leader and led all branding, consumer and trade marketing and sales strategy. Mr. Kamenstein also managed a supply chain turnaround, increasing gross margins over 100%. In 2016 he plans to increase sales to a growing number of retailers and has partnered with Christie & Co to drive consumer awareness and demand for Ips Snacks.

Mr. Kamenstein’s insights have taken the company’s formula, vision and designs to the next level. He and the Ips Snacks team are excited to announce their newest product this year – protein popcorn! This airy and delicious protein popcorn will launch at Natural Products Expo West in March, 2016 and be available in two delicious flavors. The Ips Snacks team has created this popcorn with the same mission to improve the quality, taste and health in the snacks people crave.
