Puffcorn Brand Like Air to Appear on Shark Tank

Like Air, a family-owned brand that’s reinventing snacking with its flavorful melt-in-your-mouth puffcorn, announced the brand will be making an appearance on the acclaimed television show Shark Tank. The episode is set to air today, Friday, Jan. 19, 2024 from 8-9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

The Like Air Co-Founders, Allison Lin & Steve Atieh, along with their brother and company CFO Kevin Atieh, will appear on Shark Tank where they compete for an investment from the Sharks that will be utilized to build their snack venture. The team had an exciting experience on the show, saying it was a thrill to have the opportunity to present their innovative offerings to the distinguished panel of Sharks.

Like Air is a family-run business who is passionate about healthy snacking. Now headquartered in Madison, NJ, they launched Like Air in 2020 out of New York City with the mission to improve better-for-you snacking without compromising taste. Like Air is a unique light and airy puffed snack that melts in your mouth and is only 50 calories per cup. Unlike traditional popcorn, Like Air puffcorn doesn’t contain hulls or kernels, making it a simple and easily-digestible snack that every member of the family can enjoy anywhere, anytime. The snacks are gluten-free, nut-free, made with non-GMO corn and have no artificial ingredients.

“We are beyond excited to share the Like Air journey on Shark Tank,” said Allison Lin, Co-Founder of Like Air, “Our goal has always been to create a snack that not only satisfies cravings but elevates the entire snacking experience. We’re proud to have created a snack that can be enjoyed by everyone, ages 6 months to 106 years old.”

Like Air is available in retailers nationwide, including Kroger, Meijer, HEB, ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Giant and Wegmans.
