Cindy Poiesz and Frank Jimenez, Executives of Evolve Snacking

Frank Jimenez

Frank knows snacking. With more than 18 years in Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), most of it spent at the Hershey Company, he’s learned a thing or two about developing strategies that drive measurable growth in retail categories. In his role as Senior Director of Retail Evolution at Hershey, Frank was pivotal in moving the iconic confectioner’s transition from old-line candy maker to 21st century snacking power. He helped to make Hershey relevant to the way people eat today.

In consulting positions, Frank brought strategic vision to companies in need of invigorating and re-invigorating their brands, from consumer-goods makers to traditional retailers. His ability to recognize how changing consumer shopping habits have impacted retail has allowed him to develop far-reaching solutions that have breathed new life back into bricks-and-mortar. Frank’s tactical background includes center-store transformation, total-category reinvention, front-end optimization, transformative digital experiences, and other services that elevate the CPG/retail relationship and provide significant revenue gains.

Cindy Poiesz

Cindy’s background is corporate investment banking in the energy industry, but her true passions are health, wellness, and delicious food. She applied her analytical and research skills to the food industry, which help produce out-of-the-box innovation and creativity. Cindy created Supernola for her own health benefits while still working in finance, and soon realized that her analytical and financial skills could be successfully married with her passions. Cindy’s strengths lie not only in financial analysis, corporate finance, and mergers/acquisitions but also in analyzing and developing food for both a health and appetite appeal. Her unique approach has led to the creation of innovative snack products that consumers increasingly desire, and a creative innovation pipeline for EVOLVE brands.

Cindy's Story

I believe that the first step towards a fulfilling life is deciding that you deserve one. Easier said than done... I know. So, I made it my mission to create something that makes the healthy option the easy option. A no brainer.

I started with the highest quality ingredients sourced from around the world. Ingredients that are not merely organic, but ingredients that do the heavy lifting to help raise well-being. But that was the easy part. What was missing from the healthy snacks in my pantry was mouth-watering flavor and satisfying texture. I needed something unique. Not a health bar, or another crunchy granola, but the best of both brought together.

With a recipe of organic superfoods, nuts, seeds, spices, and unrefined ingredients, I mixed up my first chewy cluster of Supernola in 2012. After 2 years of countless batches, rolling pins, and hours of research, Supernola was perfected. It has been a great adventure spreading the benefits of Supernola across the country, I wouldn't trade this journey for anything.

Supernola still has the same mission. Helping people feel good about the food they eat. The desire to enjoy your food and enjoy the way it makes you feel. And making the world a better place with every bite.

Choose better with me.

What is Supernola?

Answer: Chewy clusters of organic superfoods, tree nuts and seeds.

What makes Supernola 'Super'?

Answer: The superfoods in Supernola are what makes it so super! Not only are our ingredients all certified organic, gluten free, unrefined and natural, but the superfoods we use provide your body with more nutrients per bite that you can get from any other snack like it.

Why is Supernola a better snack?

Answer: Supernola is also high in vitamins and minerals that help your body during and after a workout, such as magnesium and vitamin B1. We’ve put the best possible organic ingredients and combined the natural power of exotic superfoods to provide you with optimal nutrition for your active lifestyle – one that won’t upset your stomach. Each of our ingredients also contains anti-inflammatory properties.

How do I eat it?

Answer: Any way you like it! We like it right out of the bag, but we get creative sometimes by mixing it with any type of milk as a cereal, on top of yogurt or with fruit (especially berries!). Let us know if you have any new combinations or recipes you like, and we’d love to share it!

Does Supernola contain colors, flavors or preservatives?

Answer: We don't believe in any of that! We don't use any 'natural' or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The colors in Supernola are naturally from the superfoods, dragon fruit and maqui berries. We don't use any 'natural flavors' because we don't need them, and some of our ingredients act as natural preservatives, so we don't need those either!

What is the shelf life?

Answer: The best by date is always printed on the front of the bag, which is exactly 365 days from the date it was produced. You can store Supernola simply in your pantry.

Is it gluten-free? Peanut Free?

Answer: es. Supernola is naturally gluten-free, grain-free, and free of peanuts. We also make sure none of our ingredients come into contact with gluten by manufacturing out of a gluten-free and peanut-free facility. Our raw ingredients have been certified gluten-free and aren't packaged alongside peanuts.

The fat content is high … why should I eat it?

Answer: Remember that your body gets its energy from carbs AND fats. It’s the bad fats that ruin it for all fats these days… but Supernola only contains natural fats from the nuts and seeds. We use an unrefined, organic, extra virgin coconut oil to provide your body with a metabolism-boosting fuel.

Is Supernola vegan?

Answer: Dragonfruit Lemon Zest and Pineapple Ginger Fusion are Vegan. The other flavors use all-natural, organic, raw honey. We believe bees are important to a plant-based lifestyle, so we only support beekeepers that support the bee population.

Is Supernola military-friendly?

Answer: We are proud to support our troops and first-responders, so we created two varieties of Supernola that do not include hemp: Triple Berry Vanilla and Pineapple Ginger Fusion.

How long do Gorilly Goods products last?

Answer: Gorilly Goods are dehydrated, crunchy and made to last. Best eaten by the date printed on each package, which is one year from the date it was produced.

Is it gluten-free? Peanut free?

Answer: Our entire manufacturing facility is both gluten free and peanut free, and we ensure that each of our ingredients are as well. Safe for those with gluten and peanut allergies.

Our portfolio includes Gorilly Goods and Supernola – two brands that are out to create a better world through mindful snacking.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.



100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 



Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
