Drink Spotlight: The Plug Hangover Drink



An all-natural formula that actually works


+ Drink and wake up hangover-free, refreshed, and ready to hustle

+ Perfectly combine social life with your career … no more FOMO because of work the next day.

+ Replenish your body with all the nutrients it needs to stay hydrated, flush toxins out and don't pay for unnecessary additives



You don't have time for "DIY" hangover hacks...

... because, let's be honest, they never work.

Sick of being hungover after a Tuesday night out, or Thursday happy hour, we were determined to find a solution. The only way was through science.

With years of research (and a lot of our personal cold hard $$$) we worked with top Korean scientists, to find a unique formula that tastes delicious without artificial flavors or chemicals. So we patent it.

Made from 100% natural ingredients, The Plug is a mix of the purest bedrock water from the Unak mountain, and 13 rare herbs of superb quality, and most importantly, IT WORKS.




Most existing hangover remedies focus on Vitamins (such as B & C), claiming "quick fixes". That's why we created The Plug. With a proprietary blend of 13 natural herbs and no added sugar, The Plug has been scientifically proven to help improve liver function and increases the main enzymes (ADH and ALDH) that fight nausea and fatigue.



We handpicked each ingredient for taste and purpose.

We spent years researching 1000's of different ingredients and combinations before we finally struck gold. A combination of plants that support liver health, help break down toxins, and hydrate your system at hyper-speed.

Sauce Spotlight: TRUFF Announces Pasta Sauce, Jumping Into Brand New Category


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16. 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, TRUFF, the brand known for its luxury hot sauce with an ultra-unique blend of truffles and spice, announced its first-ever category expansion with the launch of TRUFF Pasta Sauce. Utilizing the same flavor profile and pristine design that catapulted TRUFF's Hot Sauce into social media virality, TRUFF's Pasta Sauce will bring an elevated option to the rapidly growing $7B pasta sauce market.

"The TRUFF brand actually stemmed from an Instagram account, @sauce, where we shared a mix of pop culture and foodie content. With TRUFF, we always wanted to create products for the audience that we built," says Nick Ajluni, Co-Founder and Co-CEO at TRUFF. "While pasta sauce is new to TRUFF, we are keeping a consistent approach of creating distinctive products around the lifestyle our customers embrace and desire."

TRUFF Pasta Sauce features a recipe of ripe tomatoes, delicate herbs, black truffle and red chili peppers. Available in two distinct varieties, Pomodoro and a spicy Arrabbiata, TRUFF's Pasta Sauce is simmered to perfection and designed to elevate your favorite pasta or pizza. TRUFF, which is the #1 best-selling hot sauce at Whole Foods Market and at Amazon.com, will debut the new pasta sauces online, at select Whole Foods and nationally at Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus.

The product expansion comes on the heels of the hiring of Reno Yanes as the Vice President of Sales earlier this year. Yanes, who joined TRUFF from Primal Kitchen, is responsible for the company's growth strategy and operations, driving multi-channel growth for the company's products and fueling product innovation and development.

"TRUFF's Pasta Sauce is a delicious evolution of what we've done with our existing hot sauce portfolio. With the expansion, we will continue to put a premium, stylized spin on consumer categories that have been historically dominated by legacy brands," says Reno Yanes, Vice President of Sales at TRUFF. "We are excited to provide the same level of differentiated brand and taste experience to the pasta aisle."

TRUFF has experienced groundbreaking company growth since its launch in 2017. In early 2019, the brand announced a valuation of over $25 Million. Since then, and in 2020 alone, the company had over 300% growth while expanding its retail footprint in over 3,000 stores across America and around the world in Australia, South Korea and Kuwait.

The chocolates are great for occasional pain, whole body wellness, relaxation, and sleep.

Bar Spotlight: KIND Launches KIND® Energy


KIND embarks on mission to educate people about the ingredients and proper eating occasion of energy bars

NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move consistent with a history of disrupting categories, KIND Healthy Snacks (KIND) today elevates the energy bar category with the release of KIND® Energy: a bar that provides sustained energy from whole grains. The product line's first ingredient, oats, contributes complex carbohydrates – the preferred nutrient for sustained energy. Each bar also contains 35% less sugar than the top-selling energy bar. KIND Energy is set to reinvent a category that frequently contains higher amounts of sugars along with protein powders or artificial sweeteners.

"Since day one, KIND has been committed to balancing health and taste and adhering to our KIND Promise to craft snacks with a nutritionally dense first ingredient," says Daniel Lubetzky, Founder & Executive Chairman of KIND. "KIND Energy honors this promise and is consistent with how we've always entered categories – with an eye toward disruption and a goal of elevating people's overall experience."

With the introduction of KIND Energy, KIND is embarking on a mission to educate people on the proper time to consume energy bars – as opposed to snack bars that tide you over between meals. According to third party study, 75% of respondents eat the top-selling energy bar before activities like relaxing at home, sitting at their desk, or running errands.1 Given that energy bars are typically higher in calories, larger in size, or higher in carbohydrates, they should be eaten before physical activity.

"Energy bars are typically higher in calories, carbohydrates and sugar and should not be eaten before being sedentary as your body won't be challenged to metabolize the energy efficiently," says Stephanie Csaszar, MS, RD and Nutrition Expert at KIND. "While KIND Energy has 35% less sugar than the top-selling energy bar, it should still be eaten before physical activity for this reason. An ideal snack for when you're less active is our KIND® Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt bar which leads with heart-healthy almonds and contains only 5 grams of sugar."

As part of this launch, KIND is introducing the KIND Energy Pledge: a commitment to eat energy bars only before physical activity. When individuals sign the pledge, they will be asked to submit a photo or a receipt of an energy bar purchase (either KIND Energy or any other energy bar on the market). The first 1,000 individuals to sign the pledge will receive $100 to use towards a future fitness-related expense.

The KIND Energy Pledge is supported by more than a dozen nutrition and fitness experts including renowned sports dietitians, personal trainers, exercise physiologists and fitness group instructors.  "Energy bars should not be treated as regular snacks because of their distinct nutritional profile," says Leslie Bonci, MPH, RDN, CSSD, LDN, Kansas City Chiefs Dietitian and Owner of Active Eating Advice, Inc. "The higher carbohydrate content is meant to help your body utilize the energy most efficiently to optimize performance, not to sit around."

KIND Energy delivers 100% whole grains from oats, quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth and millet and 10 grams of protein. It's available at www.kindsnacks.com and retailers nationwide, with a suggested retail price of $1.39-$1.69 per bar.

About KIND Healthy Snacks
About KIND Healthy Snacks Since 2004, KIND has been on a mission to create a kinder and healthier world – one snack and one act at a time. Its iconic KIND® bars – made with real, recognizable ingredients – sparked the growth of an entirely new healthy snacking category. Today, KIND has a family of more than 80 snacks that offer solutions for a variety of occasions. All of KIND's products lead with a nutrient-dense first ingredient – whole nuts, whole grains or whole fruit – and do not contain genetically engineered ingredients, sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners.

Inspired by the belief that acts of kindness can be a transformative force for good, both the KIND brand and The KIND Foundation seek to inspire kindness and empathy.

KIND is majority founder- and team-owned, and every full-time team member has a stake in the company. To learn more about KIND, visit kindsnacks.com.
