From munching on a huge bowl of popcorn to feasting on your favorite chips, there are plenty of options available in the market for a snack connoisseur. Unfortunately, while these snack items are without a doubt extremely delicious, they might not be the healthiest option for your body.
Of course, there are many healthy snack options too like kale chips, snack bars, etc, they might not satisfy your taste buds. Luckily, for us, two young entrepreneurs from Chicago created a perfect, high-protein snack, that not only tastes great but also won't hurt your body- chips made of egg whites. If you're curious to know more about this interesting product, then read on to know everything about it.
What is Quevos?
When you think of eggs, the first thing that pops into many people's minds is either an omelet, or a comforting plate of egg salad, or even an egg sandwich. But have you ever heard of egg white chips?
You might have definitely tasted them accidentally... remember those crispy egg white bits stuck to the pan after cooking your eggs? Who doesn't like them? Now imagine if you could have a bag full of those crispy egg whites, sounds amazing, doesn't it? Well, you don't have to toil endlessly in your kitchen for it, you can just buy a bag of Quevos!
Quevos chips are packed with proteins, fiber, and healthy fats, that not only taste great but also are good for your body. The website describes these chips as, "Quevos are high protein, low carb chips made from egg whites. Finally a delicious, crispy, and nutritious snack you can feel great about eating! Our Keto-friendly flavors provide a good source of protein and fiber in addition to being extremely low carb. Each bag comes with 8 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and only 4 grams of net carbs! If you count your macros, these are for you!"
Who are the founders?
Nick Hamburber and Zack Schreier are the founders of Quevo. Zack, who suffers from type-1 diabetes, always had a hard time finding snacks that he could consume without having to take an insulin shot immediately after consuming them. One of his favorite snacks was egg whites. So one day, while Zack was in the kitchen the crispy egg whites stuck to the pan gave him an idea of creating chips made of egg whites.
"So he got to work developing a low-carb egg white chip alongside his sister Carly and lifelong friend Nick. Together they experimented tirelessly for two years before arriving at the product of their dreams — a crunchy and boldly flavorful chip that delivers the nutrition and purity of an egg-white omelet," the official website reveals.
What is the cost?
You can purchase the special Shark Tank intro pack bundle of 5 packets (2 Sour Cream & Onion, 1 Dill Pickle, 1 Quevos Rancheros, and 1 Honey Mustard), just for $14.99. Sounds exciting, doesn't it?
Wondering what are the ingredients? The website explains, "Our Keto-friendly flavors provide a good source of protein and fiber in addition to being extremely low carb. Each bag comes with 8 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and only 4 grams of net carbs! If you count your macros, these are for you!" The delivery window right now is three weeks from order date.

Who will crack the deal?
Since it's a food item, all the sharks will definitely be interested in it, but we think Lore Greiner aka the QVC queen might most likely end up closing the deal. Although, it eventually boils down to the sales numbers and demand for the product for sharks to decide whether to invest in the company or not.
Seeking an investment of $200,000 for a 5% equity, the two come on the show and clarify that their product is not fried! Teasing their pitch on the show, the official handle posted, "Is this going to be an egg-celent deal? Find out tomorrow on an all-new #SharkTank!"
