One of the largest mushroom growers in North America launched a new venture called Shrooms Snacks that offers better-for-you mushroom snacks in familiar forms like snack bars, jerky and crisps. Some of the inventive snacks that are making their debut include Shrooms Crispy Mushrooms in flavors like Sea Salt, Spicy Jalapeno, Mesquite Barbeque, as well as the allergy-friendly Shrooms Snack Bar, which comes in unique varieties like Crispy Mushroom Chocolate Chunk and Crispy Mushroom Sweet & Savory.

As David Eberwein, Director of Innovation & Business Development at Shrooms Snacks, says "As the popularity of plant-based snacking continues to rise, we started thinking about ways to reinvent the mushroom." With the rise of adaptogenic medicinal mushrooms and mushrooms as meat substitutes, other snack brands like Shrooms Snacks are producing everything from granola bars and jerky alternatives to chips with fungi.
