Adam Cooper, Vice President of Marketing, The Wonderful Company“Parents and kids don’t often see eye-to-eye, but when it comes to healthy snacking, their love of Halos transcends age,” said Adam Cooper, Vice President of Marketing. “Halos has not only earned the trust of parents as that rare sweet snack bursting with ‘Pure Goodness’ the whole family can feel good about eating, but the fact that we’ve become a fan-favorite among our biggest critics, kids—who love them for being a fun, bite-size snack, small enough to hold and easy to peel on their own—is the sweetest reward.”
