LesserEvil Snacks is a natural snack food company located in Danbury, Connecticut. The company manufacturers and distributes its own products.
LesserEvil was founded in March 2004 in Tuckahoe, New York. Their first products included potato puffs and a line of four Kettle Corns, which they touted as low in carbohydrates, free of trans fats, preservatives, and high-fructose corn syrup. In early 2005, the company shifted from a low-carb line to an all-natural line. In November 2011, the company was sold to Charles Coristine. Charles and his partner Andrew Strife opened a new office in Wilton, CT. The company opened up its first manufacturing facility on Finance Drive in Danbury CT in 2012. The company has expanded a couple of times and now has larger factory on Commerce Ave, an office on Eagle Drive and a warehouse in Brookfield, CT. The company employs about a 100 people between its three locations.
In 2012, Dr. Oz featured LesserEvil's Chia Crisps as the “Ultimate Snack”. In earlier 2012, LesserEvil won the Gluten Free Snack of the Year by the Connecticut Specialty Foods Association. LesserEvil Healthy Brand Snacks have also been featured by Rachael Ray, Hungry Girl, and Inc. magazine among others.
