About the Company
Founded in 2004, NadaMoo! was born of part inspiration and part determination.

You see, from the time she was very young, the sister of NadaMoo’s creator struggled with seasonal allergies. When she was an adult, a nutritionist recommended eliminating certain trigger foods from her diet in an effort to control them. Watching her sister say goodbye to breads, pastries and – gasp! – ice cream, an opportunity was spoted to make her sister’s road to health a little more enjoyable, and began re-inventing their favorite desserts, making versions without dairy, eggs, soy, wheat or sugar. There were hits and misses along the way (don’t ask about the birthday lemon tart) but being a good sister and a curious cook, perseverance eventually lead to that perfect combination of both really healthy and really delicious: NadaMoo!  Read More

Allergy Advice
Don’t forget our Chocolate Break Geobar contains wheat, barley, oats, gluten, milk and soya. They may contain traces of nuts and/or seeds too.

Packaging
It’s not just our Geobars that we have made better than ever, our new box is recyclable and made with 93% recycled materials. Right now we’re afraid that our wrapper is not yet recyclable, but we are working on it – so watch this space.

 
About the Company
When we started making Geobar cereal bars in 1999 we didn’t know if anyone would buy them…

We just wanted to create a new kind of snack which combined a mixture of high quality Fairtrade ingredients from around the world. It’s not rocket science. We weren’t trying to split the atom, or work out what relativity was. For a start we’re not that clever – and besides someone else had already done those things. Read More

About the Ingredients
There are whole ingredients, there are fresh ingredients, and there are whole, fresh, all-natural, Fair Trade ingredients. We hope you can guess which ones we like. We also like to know everything about them, from their first days as a little spice shoot to the people that planted them in the first place. That’s why we visit the origin of the spices in each Third Street blend every year, just to cozy up to the farmers, their environments and the living standards of each location. (And yes, it is absolutely awful to travel to all these exotic places, smell buckets and buckets of fresh nutmeg and cardamom, and form new friendships the world over.)

 

 

 
About the Company
We know, we know. It’s nearly impossible to imagine life without chai. But in 1995, chai was – actually, chai wasn’t. Back then, you’d say “chai” to someone and they’d glaze over, like you were speaking Ewok. So when we (we being a few kids at a coffee shop) started selling the homemade blends of teas and spices we loved sipping after long training rides and even longer nights (again, we were young, ahem), people probably thought we were nuts.

Most people, anyway. But not Boulder people. In 1995, Boulder, Colorado was already a mecca for sustainable, somewhat “experimental” things, welcoming all kinds of new-comers to an industry they were calling natural foods. And as we were already swimming in a sea of tea and tofu, we set out to make our own mark. Read More
