When I left my home in Mexico City for Chicago, one of the first things I did was go to the grocery store.
I remember going into the "ethnic aisle" and feeling lost. I didn't see anything that portrayed the Mexico I knew. There were rows of old school “Mexican” brands—sometimes US-owned—rooted in clichés of food and culture. Little health or freshness, all sombreros.
I created Nemi Snacks to share un poquito de México with you and bring you a taste of the liveliness, colors and joy of my cultura with a sombrero-free branding.
Our food traditions are rooted in familia, from mi abuela’s cocina to ancestors harvesting in Aztec villages. The old ways sustained body, soul and planet, and we return to that indigenous genius in our simple, real food recipes.
That’s why we took Nemi’s name from “to live” in Náhuatl, the language of the Aztecs. Food is love and life, and we want ours to be nourishing to your body and fresh in every way possible.
We have the opportunity to create more than a snack. A good business should be good to the community. From our farmers to our social feed to your salad, we want Nemi to be sustainable and delicioso in all ways.

These snacks are so incredibly tasty. They’re addicting. I love the ingredients and the culture behind the yummy treats.
Nemi Churro Snack is the healthiest, best tasting snack that I have and probably will ever eat! I absolutely love them! They are crunchy and so delicious and satisfying! I am addicted to them.....I find ways to incorporate them daily with my meals and in between and I do not have to feel guilty about doing that! I will be a forever happy Nemi Churro Snack girl!
I was looking for a crunchy snack. I don’t love chips so I decided to try these. They are delicious and satisfying and I don’t feel heavy after I eat them. I love having the variety of flavors - I can’t pick a favorite. The only bad thing is the pack isn’t going to last as long as I thought!
Obsessed with Nemi since the first time I tried them - crunchy and delicious
What can I say other than I’m addicted this the subscription I have thank you!
I am so excited I stumbled upon the brand! These are totally my new favorite healthy crunchy snack. The texture provides a satisfying crunch & the flavors are all superb. Plus the calorie count for the portion size is really generous & filling! These are definitely going to be a staple for my pantry! I think the Lime flavor is my favorite but they are all so good it's hard to pick!
and the smoky chipolte are just as good
I really love Nemis! They have a great crunch and the flavor is so full and rich. I’ve been recommending them like a fiend lately
So good I wish I could by a huge bag!
Smoky Chipotle (Pack of 6)
Some bags came unsealed - so tasty though.
I seriously love all your products. I wish they sold them Costco so I could buy ALOT. Sometimes I have a hard time believing the nutrition because it is so good. I appreciate the portion size too. Not too much, not too little.
After enjoying two bags ourselves, my spouse and I ordered these for a family member. They loved them as much as we did.
