Product Spotlight: Good Societea Coconut Green Tea Whole Food Bar
Good Societea is a new line of amazing whole food bars that are set to take the food world by storm. The bars are infused with none other than tea. Sounds a bit odd but we can assure you that these are hands down some of the best whole food bars we have ever come across, and we've sampled quite a few bars in our time. The bars are made from organic ingredients that are good for you and incredibly tasty. Currently there are three flavor combinations (Vanilla Early Grey, Coconut Green Tea, Choco Chai Rooibos). Each is infused with a different tea and all retail in a 42g bar. We can't use words to do justice for how good the bars actually are so we highly recommend you head to their website and order a batch today.

THE ORIGINS OF GOOD SOCIETEA
Kristin and Van started Good Societea bars in their kitchen after being frustrated by the lack of real food options for people on-the-go. Kristin has always suffered from allergies and could never eat nutrition bars because they almost all included inflammatories like nuts, gluten, dairy, and soy. Van has always eaten bars because they fit his busy lifestyle, but he was tired of eating bars with processed ingredients and artificially inflated nutrients. Plus, all the sugar in other bars made him feel bad; even the "healthy" bars made from things like dates and dried fruit were super high in fructose!
After doing some research, Van discovered why the big bar corporations were selling us all bad products: their business strategy was to produce the cheapest product possible! But Kristin remembered sitting in on a Stanford University lecture with the founder of the clothing company Patagonia. The Patagonia business model was built on making the best product possible in an ethical and sustainable way. We believed we could apply the same approach to snacking. (Listen to that game-changing lecture, entitled "Let My People Go Surfing," here for free).
So we got to work in our kitchen making bars out of real, quality ingredients. After almost a year of experimenting and hundreds of batches of homemade bars, we finally found the perfect combination of taste, nutrition, and environmentally sustainable ingredients. The result: Good Societea bars. The awesome flavors and antioxidants of tea, combined with 100% whole food ingredients like organic chocolate, hemp seeds, plant protein, and coconut nectar. Artisan bakers and chocolatiers have used tea for years to make gourmet cookies and chocolates--now, we're bringing that sophistication to the humble snack bar. Finally, a nutritious snack bar for foodies!
