If you remember Snappies, the baked sort of cheesy cocktail snack, please let me know where I can get them or who makes them. Thanks

  1. I actually went on-line this morning to research
    Snappies....my husband's favorite snack. They were made by a company called Koeppns. Please let me know if you can locate them!

      I , also, have been searching for years to find Snappies. I remember them well from my childhood in Richmond, VA. And I would also like any info anybody has on where to get them.

        Yes, Our family remembers with such fondness these delicious little tidbits. We remember the blue and yellow container as well. We are also looking. When we manufacture them we will be happy to send you some. Let us know if you would like.....

          I am still looking for these as well and check back with this board on an irregular basis to see if anyone has found them -- I suspect the manufacturer has gone out of business but I am hopeful that someone still has a few cases left!!

            I am so amazed to find other people who also can't get snappies out of their minds! I was told at a gourmet market in San Francisco on Union St. in the early 70's (!) that the company had gone out of business...but I was suspicious that the grocer had just stopped carrying them. Would still love to find them again.

                Oh how I miss them! We used to get them at the local market on Long Island and on Miami Beach at a market in the winter. Can this recipe be duplicated?

                  "According to the records of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (http://www.uspto.gov), Snappies brand cocktail snacks were introduced to the American public July, 1935. The last known holder of the trademark is American Home Products. Sadly, the tradename has expired. This generally indicates the product is no longer in production."

                  I am also one of those who would love the recipe for snappies. I had my mother send them to me at school.

                  Blue can, yellow lettering....Koeppen's Snappies.
                  Been trying for years to find them. No taste and texture like them!!! Simply the finest, but impossible to describe them to someone who's never had them.

                  1. re: T.J.T.

                    I believe they were made in the Midwest. I used to get them at the Broadway in Anaheim in the 60's. Someone in the food industry MUST remember them - They'd make a pig out of anyone.

                      my parents used to have them with cocktails. i've been hoping to find them for years.

                    2. re: T.J.T.

                      I remember Snappies! In fact, I still have a jar with the label and the lid, but it is filled with change, rather than those wonderful treats. And you're right--they can't be described to anyone who hasn't had one. They seem to have disappeared. Good luck, and if you ever find a couple of cans or jars, please share.

                    I can't beleive it. Someone else had a thing for these unbelievable crunchy mouth-watering snacks. I have been home sick for over 10 days and out of no where starting thinking on these things! Does anyone have a line on the readmitance of these tasty treats to the marketplace????

                        Yes, my mom and I have been thinking about these snacks for the past few years and have been trying in vain to find them--let me know whenever they become available.

                        Thanks,

                          Decided to Google Snappies. Can't believe there are others hoping to find them. We had them with our before dinner drinks in the 60s. My entire family's mouth waters just thinking of them. Has anyone found out if the company kept their recipe? I'd dearly love to have them again.

                    2. I have been searching for these as well -- If you find a source please let me know!

                      1. I loved Snappies as a child. My dad and I talk about them all the time. I would love to know how to get a hold of some. Please let me know if you find anything.

                        1. I still find it hard to believe that there is nothing anywhere that will lead any of us to a recipe or any other info -- I for one might even be interested in starting to manufacture them!!
