Made in Wisconsin: PoppingFun


Neenah (WAOW)-- In this week's Made in Wisconsin we take you to Neenah, home of PoppingFun and their shocking new product.

As the only manufacturer of carbonated crystals in North America, PoppingFun works to become the leader in an unknown market. Their goal, make food fun.

"What it does," says Lynn Hesson, founder and CEO, "is it adds a sparkling effect. It's an interactive event for these young kids with their food. What you find is noise entices them to eat the food and it's a lot of fun."

Lynn Hesson started the company after he got the idea to mix pop rocks-type candy with food on his way home from a business trip.

The company also manufactures their own line of candy, "Shock", that they recently released in January. Hesson describes the colorful candy as a mix between a "Warhead" and "Pop rocks."
