Consumer data and insights, surveys, focus groups, taste-testing and more, enabled Gopuff and Chris Paul to carefully curate a line of flavors and product types that appeal to customers who love bold flavors, with the goal of making plant-based snacks more approachable and inviting. Good Eat’n flavors include Hot Hot Puffs, Cinnamon Sugar Mini Donut Puffs, Nacho Cheeze Tortilla Chips, Big Dill Ranch Tortilla Chips, Cookies N Creme Popcorn, Carolina Style BBQ Popcorn and Classic BBQ Porkless Rinds.
Complementing the delicious flavors is the uniquely colorful and fun Good Eat’n brand and packaging, designed by Utendahl Creative, a Black and female-founded and led studio.
