The Story

The idea for Giddy Up Nuts was born 5 years ago when our founder, Kristy Mangia, was driving home from California’s favorite winter resort, Mammoth Mountain. As she surveyed the store, filled with sugary, processed, fatty snacks, she thought that there must be a better way to snack on the road. There had to be a challenger to the potato chip empire; a delicious, approachable, healthy snack that you could feel good about eating and tasted good too. It was on that 5 hour drive home to Los Angeles that Giddy Up Nuts was conceived. 

Kristy began selling Giddy Up Nuts at the local farmers markets, where the stall quickly became a favorite amongst the marketgoers. Customers loved Giddy Up’s unique flavors, all natural ingredients, and eye catching packaging. Soon Kristy began selling online and distributing to gourmet, specialty food stores.

Today you can find Giddy Up at boutique retailers across the country.

When Kristy isn’t in the kitchen dreaming up new flavors, you can find her hiking with her golden retriever, skiing in Mammoth or adventuring to new places, always of course, with Giddy Up Nuts in hand.
