These new hemp sticks are packed with a ton of protein, making it more desirable as a “healthy snack”. “With the launch of Hemp Sticks, Papa Johns has become the first global quick-service brand to make superfood hemp available to all,” QSR Magazine quoted Papa Johns vice president of international marketing, Jo Blundell, as saying. “Premium, innovative ingredients are the very core of our pizzas, so Hemp Sticks will offer pizza fans a new way to enjoy our iconic breadsticks and help to dispel some of the misunderstanding surrounding this 100% legal, delicious seed.”
