🌻About ProSeed Snack Cups🌻
The ProSeed® Sunflower Seed Cup was invented by a 12-year old Oklahoma boy who envisioned the idea after his mother rolled his fingers up in a car window. While traveling home from chess camp one summer day in 2016, they were enjoying sunflower seeds and both were tossing the shells out of the cracked windows. When she finished, she accidentally rolled up the passenger side window instead of her own.
Once his fingers stopped hurting, he had an idea.
The First Handmade Prototype
After having his fingers smashed, he created the first prototype using a plastic cup, a paper towel roll, aluminum foil, and a little Duct Tape. Starting that day,
we have worked towards
Making the ProSeed Cup Come to Life.

The First Plastic Prototype
This is a photo of the first plastic prototype. A freelancer worked with me on design changes that incorporated the two caps on the lid and the ability to drop the empty shells into a trash can from the bottom of the cup. He produced five cups using his 3D printer. These became the first usable prototypes. His cups were used in our vehicles for more than four years, until we retired them and now use the
ProSeed Cup that You Can Buy Today.
The ProSeed® Cup
Six years later we could finally introduce the ProSeed Cup to you. A lot of hard work, a huge learning experience, a few hurdles to clear and finally a success…
His Vision has Become a Reality.
See How the ProSeed Changed
In the first six years, the ProSeed has been changed and tweaked many times. Almost too many to count. You can see how each prototype changed, mostly lid openings and the bottom plug.
