I began hot air popping popcorn on the stovetop in the summer of 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. As a vegan and former lover of Parmesan cheese popcorn, I searched my kitchen for savory ingredients to create a replica of my once favorite snack. > > While nursing my newborn and toddler, I was always hungry. I needed a go-to treat that would give my body the nutrients required to successfully nourish myself and my babies. My family and close friends encouraged me to try a hand in selling my treat at the ‘drum circle’ on Sunday’s at the Historical Leimert Park Village. A little over a year later, the success was so great that in 2014, I decided to pitch my product to Simply Wholesome Health Food Store and Restaurant in Inglewood, CA. > > Selling out within a matter of days, I knew I had to broaden my scope. That week, I went into Erewhon Natural Food Market on Beverly Blvd, located next door to CBS Studios to find the buyer. I promptly found her, placed my product in her hands, and walked away to continue shopping. Before I finished collecting the items on my grocery list, the buyer approached me with green lips and fingers and asked, “So when can we place our first order?” > > In 2015, Azzizah’s Herbal Green Popcorn became the #2 Best Selling product at Erewhon Market, selling out weekly at all 5 of their locations(Los Angeles, Venice Beach, Pacific Palisades, Calabasas, and Santa Monica).
