Jailhouse Pops: From Prison to Popcorn Empire with Emily O’Brien
Play • 22 min

Emily O’Brien returned to Toronto from vacationing in the Caribbean with drugs strapped to her body. She was promptly arrested and sentenced to federal prison. Where her story diverges from what you might expect is in what she did during her time behind bars: she started a company. Comeback Snacks was born while she was incarcerated and she now uses the platform to shine a light on what happens to people when they go to prison — and the positive impact they can have on society when they’re out.
