Snack Review: Omnibar Chipotle Barbecue


Beef and barbecue have a primal connection reverently honored here. You’ll get the deep, rich, smoky flavor of tomatoes and chipotle combined with the hearty goodness of grass-fed beef. Want to feel like you just rode the range? Grab a barbecue-flavored Omnibar and the ranch will come to you.


Ground beef, dried prunes, almonds, dried sweet potatoes, oats, brown flax seed, tomato paste, sugar, worcestershire sauce (white vinegar, molasses, sugar, water, salt, onions, anchovies, garlic, cloves, tamarind extract, natural flavorings, chili pepper extract), brown sugar, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, spice (mustard), dried chipotle peppers. Contains: almonds, anchovies.





About the Company
Omnibar was born from a desire to use the fine grass-fed beef from our family ranch in Montana to create an on-the-go source of the balanced nutrition needed to live and play in our backyard. Our mission is to create a natural, healthy alternative to overly sugared, overly processed food bars. In addition to our beef, we use simple everyday foods like sweet potatoes and almond butter—nothing overly engineered or hard to pronounce. It’s good food for good people so they can keep on doing what they do.  Read More

Product Spotlight: PROBAR Core Mint Chocolate Protein Bar



Chocolate with a hint of mint is a tasty way to build lean muscle. With real plant protein, chia, and flax seeds for hydration and recovery, Mint Chocolate will get you to the next level.






About the Company
The beginnings of our company had to do with the fact that a product didn’t exist, so someone needed to make it.

In Snowbird, Utah in the late 1990s, on-the-go energy products still lived in the world of “engineered ultra-power-foods”, with science fiction-esque sounding ingredients.

Our founders were up there, working as little and playing as often as they could. Besides being mountain junkies, they knew a thing or two about real, whole food. They knew the power of raw ingredients and started to experiment with healthy, vegan snack creations.

Soon, their friends and then the town of Snowbird were PROBAR people. A hunger-destroying bar that’s made from pure nutritional goodness, with no chemical additives—it’s no surprise the locals were among PROBAR’s first hardcore fans. The buzz was contagious. After hitting the mountain hard, people were recharging with PROBAR. We had a local test kitchen, and were off and running.

Our company’s goal is to change how the world thinks when it comes to real, whole food. PROBAR products are proof that a food maker can wholeheartedly commit to quality, sustainability—and sheer deliciousness. Part of the Simply Real® promise is sourcing the finest all-natural, 100% vegan organic ingredients from growers who believe in these things as well. As you check out our products, they all have one thing in common: they started with only the best raw ingredients.

The reason for our success is simple - Integrity. Compared to other bars, PROBAR tastes better and contains high quality ingredients. From the beginning, PROBAR has remained committed to convenient, natural, high-performance nutrition. PROBAR has never strayed from the integrity of our original recipes.

Us real food lovers need to stick together!

Product Spotlight: The Raw Smoothie




Raw Smoothie by Nosh Detox. Available in 4 delicious flavor varieties that are packed full of great ingredients and amazing benefits.

We found a way to put optimum health in a bottle.

In our busy, modern lives, keeping healthy isn’t easy. It’s a real challenge to take care and get all the nutrients and vitamins you need. So we found a way to make it simple for you. Introducing…The world’s first 100% Raw Smoothie.

Why drink your smoothie raw? Because raw fruit has the most vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. The fact is, most other smoothies and juices are heat-treated… which ends up denaturing the delicate enzymes found in fresh fruit.

That’s why we developed a way to keep all the good stuff in your smoothie by making sure it stays raw and fresh.
At least 6 whole food ingredients in every bottle (and nothing else)
- Loaded with Vitamin C
- Nutrient-rich super foods in every recipe
- In recent research, picked 2–to-1 over the leading smoothie*

So go ahead, be busy. We promise to keep making delicious raw smoothies that fuel you through your action-packed days… and keep you feeling energetic, focused, and well-nourished (no matter how full your diary).
WELL being, WELL bottled.

Coconut Banana Acai

Coconuts and bananas. What’s not to love? If you crave a temporary escape from the demands of the day, but need to be at your next appointment in 7 minutes, this is the Raw Smoothie for you.

Mix in a mandarin to keep things juicy, and crushed grapes for even more succulence. And let’s not forget one of the super food acai berry, a known antioxidant powerhouse. You’ll be on your way again in no time, feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world.

Ingredients: Happiness 100%, Cocunut Cream 23%, Grapes 20%, Mandarin 19%, Banana 18%, Acai Berry



Spirulina Apple Mint
When you replenish your system with fresh, raw super foods, they not only deeply nourish and purify you… they make your mouth say: mmm… oh, *this* is good.

With mango to brighten your day, apples for just the right amount of sweet, and the tangy kiss of pineapple, you are off to a great start. But the real magic comes with the addition of mint and our proprietary mix of super foods, including spirulina, flax seeds, and sea greens (to name just a few). It not only feels good… it tastes delicious.

: Love 100%, Mango 46%, Pineapple 40%, Apple 7.4%, Water 5.8%, Mint, Superfood (Alfalfa, Seagreens, Spirulina, Rosehip, Chlorella, Apple powder, Acerola, Acai Berry, Linseed)



Almond Chia Banana Oats
Life moves pretty fast. So we created a raw smoothie to keep up with you when you are on the move. Loaded with vitamins and live nutrients, it will keep your energy high… and lift your spirits, too.

With bananas for balance and texture and oat milk and crushed red grapes for juiciness, you’ll love how simple nourishing yourself can be. Add some dates for just the right hint of sweetness, and chia seeds high in Omega-3 fatty acids (and all essential amino acids)… and you’ll be ready to meet the day.

Ingredients: Joy 100%, Banana 47%, Oat milk 34%, Red Grapes 14%, Dates, Almond, Cardamom Seeds, Chia Seeds


Mango Blueberry Acai

No, it’s not a shoulder massage in a bottle. But it might as well be. This smoothie tastes so good, you might just forget it’s good for you. Fresh mangoes and blueberries have that effect on people.

Mix in a little pineapple for the taste of sunshine, half a peach for a hint of summer (no matter how grey a day it is), and a dash of acai powder that’s rich in dietary fiber, calcium, iron and vitamin E. All told, this smoothie gives you 90% of your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C.

Ingredients: Bliss 100%, Mango 48%, Peach 21%, Pineapple 20.9%, Water 6%, Blueberries, Acai Berry, Agave

About the Company
Over 30 years ago, RW and Margaret set out to make the best tortilla chip the world has ever known, a snack that was as healthy as it was irresistible. They invested every dime they had (and some they didn’t) and started selling chips to retailers out of the family van. Today, RW Garcia products are available throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. And two generations of Garcias work in the family business.

We use only the highest quality, premium ingredients. All our products are verified non-GMO, certified gluten free and contain no additives or preservatives and are so wholesome that moms have started telling their kids to stop eating meals between snacks.
