Barrel O’ Fun Snack Foods comes to the Phoenix Metro West Valley

Parties … picnics … tailgating … Super Bowl night. Everybody knows it’s all about the snacks. Barrel O’ Fun has what you need every time, no matter what the occasion. Taste you can trust and quality you can count on.

Barrel O' Fun began in the spring of 1973 by the father and son team of Tuffy and Ken Nelson at Perham, Minnesota. The company began with approximately 10 employees and produced potato chips, extruded cheese curls, and popcorn. Products were primarily marketed in Minnesota, North and South Dakota. Distribution was by company-owned routes direct to stores as well as to candy and tobacco jobbers within the marketing area.

"KLN Enterprises, Inc." was formed to hold stock and manage both Barrel O' Fun Snack Foods Company and Kenny's Candy Company in 1995.  Barrel O' Fun celebrated 32 years in the snack food business the summer of 2005.

Barrel O’Fun Snack Foods Co. rolled into Phoenix and brought new jobs with it.  The snack-food maker purchased 12.5 acres near 75th Avenue and Sherman Street, on the Phoenix Metro West Valley area, and broke ground on a 140,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution center in 2008.

You can find Barrel O'Fun Snack Food products in Bashas and some Wal-Marts.
