The Chocolate R.e.d.d. bar is a deliciously revolutionary convenience food that delivers a nutrient dense, flavorful and slightly caffeinated snack or meal replacement experience that packs the following nutritional punch: 10g protein, equal to 2 – 3 egg whites or a slice of seitan (sans the gluten); 11 all-natural-all giving superfoods; 23 vitamins + minerals; 39mg natural caffeine (muchas gracias, Yerba Maté).
R.e.d.d. Chocolate bars are certified gluten free — no trapped CO2 here — and non-GMO. Separation of food and science. No ingredients have been included for reasons of cost, simplicity or ease of production. Everything here is here because it’s the best at what it does. We know of no bar at any cost made from higher quality ingredients. Amen. Om. Peace.

About the company
My college meal plan wasn’t cutting it. I burned through it in the first few weeks of the semester. After that, finding good alternatives was tough. I could’ve probably gotten by on chips but, to me, food is really important. It affects you, mentally and physically. Eat crap, feel like crap. Eventually, I found my way to a local health food store.
I didn’t have much time or money so I wasn’t looking for anything fancy. I hit the bulk foods section and mixed a bunch of inexpensive, nutritionally dense ingredients into a big bag. The concoction — and trust me, it really was a concoction — not only sustained me, it gave me a serious and sustained energy boost.
I started carrying my new energy “bar-ish” thing to classes. Much curiosity ensued which quickly became a budding, dorm room business. It beat selling pot. Anyway, that’s how the predecessor to Redd was born. I called it “Rawgasms” and it literally started out of my backpack (we had to change the name eventually…). At first, my goal was just to offer my fellow broke students a healthy, affordable alternative to whatever junk food they were eating to supplement the school meal plan. But then, you know…
After two years of seriously grassroots success and a ton of feedback, I hooked up with designer and health food enthusiast Reed Allen. Together, we re-branded, refined, re-designed, etc, etc… I doubled down on my initial commitment to the highest quality, all natural ingredients and, in June of 2014, we released our first product: Chocolate Brownie by Redd. The rest, as they say, is history.
