The Outdoor Retailer summer market showcased many tasty tidbits! We loved so many sweet snacks at the summer show. Happily, the trend towards real food and thoughtfulness about our planet has resulted in some delicious creations!
Among our favorite snacks:
Four Points bars, created by two Colorado brothers who were motivated to great a delicious nutritious energy bar with an optimal glycemic load after both their father and grandmother were diagnosed with diabetes. Their creation results in a slower-burning, sustained energy, and contains only real natural food. Here at snowgrrl, we believe they achieved their goal of making something delicious and nutritious! I had a hard time tearing myself away from the samples of the Trailhead Gingerbread and Colorado Trail flavors.
Gorilly Goods, delicious tidbits containing raw, organic vegan, gluten free ingredients. Gorilly promises carefully sourced, cleanly grown, fairly traded, sustainable and nutrient-rich ingredients. We also love that 2 cents from every box sold is donated to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund® .
Good & Ugly, “unsightly snacks for sharing,” that are non-GMO, kosher, gluten free, no-added sugar irregularly shaped bite-sized brown things (ugly) made of nuts, dried fruits and spices, providing a good dose of fiber, protein, vitamins and Omega 3 fatty acids (good!) We love that the bags contain individual portions so you don’t need to put your sticky, dirty fingers all over a bar to break off a piece to share with a friend.
Kate’s Real Food bars, dreamed up by a skiier seeking a healthy, organic and great-tasting energy bar. They’re also kosher, gluten free, non GMO, and basically delicious. We love the Dark Chocolate & Cherry Almond!
Shar’s vegan trail mix, carefully curated “next-level trail mix” in cool bags that come with a carabiner supporting the Conservation Alliance. We love that Shar gives 20% of net profits back to the planet, through continuous support of the Conservation Alliance helping preserve and protect the outdoors. Great act of kindness, Shar!
