Holy Crap breakfast cereal is a high-quality plant-based product that tastes greats, helps maintain a healthy gut, and makes consumers feel good inside and out. Holy Crap offers five distinct SKUs: Apple Cinnamon, Natural (Skinny B), Blueberry Apple, Maple + Gluten Free, and recently introduced Coconut Mango, all of which contain certified organic, non-GMO, kosher and gluten free ingredients, such as hemp seed, buckwheat, chia seeds, and gluten-free oats. The tasty, nutrient-packed breakfast cereals have high levels of essential amino and fatty acids, a kick of fiber, and are free from the top 9 allergens and free from any additives like added flavors, preservatives, chemicals, color, salt, or oils.
In addition to offering a convenient and quick breakfast option, breakfast cereals have also become a popular snacking option due to home seclusion. As many consumers have had their routines disrupted by new work at home schedules, mealtimes have also become irregular pushing them to reach for easy to prepare snacking options. According to a recent analyst report by Market Data Forecast, the North American breakfast cereal market is expected to grow from $15.8 billion in 2020 to $19.4 billion by 2026 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2%. Growing adoption of convenience foods and rising health consciousness are likely to augment the demand for breakfast cereals over the forecast period. Furthermore, consciousness among people to consume healthy products also plays a vital role in generating demand. Rising awareness among people in emerging economies regarding health benefits associated with breakfast cereals is poised to create ample opportunities for new market entrants.
