Funfetti™ Galaxy Frosting and Funfetti™ Yellow Cake Mix
This cosmic combination is out of this world! Kids and families can bring their love of the cosmos to the kitchen and bake celestial treats with new Funfetti™ Yellow Cake Mix with blue and purple candy bits — one of the first available-all-year Funfetti™ Cake Mixes in 30 years. Top with Funfetti™ Galaxy Space Blue Vanilla Frosting. The yellow stars, orange moons, silver rocket ships and white sprinkles make intergalactic creations for birthday parties or science fair snacks.

Funfetti™ Unicorn Frosting and Funfetti™ Strawberry Cake Mix
Stars, sparkles and unicorns! This majestic mix is a fun-sational way for families to combine the excitement of baking and the mystery of magic. New Funfetti™ Strawberry Cake Mix with yellow and purple candy bits offers a delicious fruit flavor and a bright pink color. Frost with Funfetti™ Unicorn Vanilla Frosting.

Food Spotlight: The Safe + Fair Food Company Introduces New Line of Top 8 Allergen-Free Baking Mixes




Company Continues to Expand Portfolio with Safe, Easy-to-Make Brownie, Blondie and Red Velvet Mixes

NEW YORK, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Safe + Fair Food Company announces its latest line extension to its allergy-friendly, great-tasting, clean label product offerings – baking mixes that are free from the top eight allergens, as well as gluten-free and vegan.

The new, easy-to-make mixes come in three delicious flavors: Double Chocolate Brownie, Red Velvet Brownie and Birthday Cake Blondie. The Top 8 Free Mixes are made with real, dairy-free and soy-free chocolate chips, natural color sprinkles, ancient grains and a specially-crafted blend of five gluten-free flours – to meet the consumer demand for a great-tasting, quality bar mix. Now food allergy families no longer have to forgo convenience by starting from scratch to get a delicious, safe baked treat.

"Finding a delicious baked good mix for a birthday party, bake sale or sweet tooth craving, that is safe for all, can seem impossible. Creating your own recipe requires a long list of ingredients and steps, and many of the current top 8 free mixes are grainy, dry and fall apart easily," says CEO of The Safe + Fair Food Company, Will Holsworth. "We created these mixes not only to satisfy both food allergy sufferers and sweet-lovers alike, but to bring convenient and versatile products to families across the country."

The new bar mixes join SAFE + FAIR's existing portfolio of granola, pea protein chips, popcorn quinoa chips, cookies and grahams.

Today, more than 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies, with eight food categories accounting for 90 percent of all allergic reactions – milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish.  As a testament to its mission to serving the food allergy community, The Safe + Fair Food Company donates three percent of proceeds to the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University to help find treatments and develop cures for people with food allergies.

The new baking mixes are now available for purchase at www.safeandfair.com and can be shipped nationwide. Each flavor is sold in a 20.6-ounce bag and can be purchased for $4.99 with free shipping for a limited time.

To learn more about and purchase the bar mixes and other SAFE + FAIR products, please visit www.safeandfair.com.

About The Safe + Fair Food Company 
The Safe + Fair Food Company was founded by friends Dave Leyrer and Pete Najarian, who found themselves frustrated by the lack of safe foods for their kids, Abby and Remy, who both happened to have nut allergies. Dave and Pete set out to make living with food allergies easier and more delicious for families like theirs by creating products both safe for food allergic kids AND so appealing that all kids love them. The SAFE + FAIR mission is to provide food with clear information and affordable prices – so whoever does the shopping can make easier, faster, more inclusive choices. We donate 3 percent of our proceeds to the Sean N. Parker for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University. Learn more at www.safeandfair.com.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Bumbleroot Baobab Drink Mixes





At Bumbleroot, we’ve been building a product we hope you love. It’s a powdered drink mix featuring a new star - the African Superfruit Baobab.

Baobab is a true superstar amongst superfruits. It has ten times more antioxidants than goji berries or acai! It's a complete plant-based protein - yay for amino acids! It's a great source of dietary fiber. It's a prebiotic - what's that you ask? It's the probiotics cooler cousin. This 'biotic helps grow good bacteria in your gut so that you can better absorb nutrients. And what else? Well, calcium, vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium to start!

We spent months (actually two years!) formulating this drink and we think it's pretty amazing. Baobab is just one of its star ingredients, its supporting actors include coconut water, and depending on the flavor - pineapple, vanilla bean, lemongrass, and blueberry.

The drinks are packed in individual pouches and the pocket-sized packaging means it’s also easy to keep on hand — or in a pocket, purse, backpack, briefcase, diaper bag, sports bag, sports bra, passport cover… You get the idea. This also means you are not contributing to the two million plastic bottles thrown out every five minutes in the United States.

And to top it off, we’ve made sure all our ingredients are certified organic - and gluten and dairy free.


Bumbleroot's Story
In 2010, co-founder Sara Andrews left the corporate world to volunteer with the NGO TechnoServe in Zimbabwe. While there, she came across the baobab fruit which grew in some of the country’s poorest, and most drought-prone areas. Determined to get this superfruit into the hands of consumers in the US and to provide much-needed income to the Baobab harvesters, she worked with chefs to develop Bumbleroot Baobab Drink Mixes.

At Bumbleroot, we've been working to create a company that represents the things we care about: top-notch nutrition, sustainable agriculture, fair prices for farmers, and, of course, scrumptious snacks.

Each day we ask ourselves: Is there a better way to do the things we do? Is there a more nutritious ingredient? Is there packaging available that’s even better for the environment? Are our suppliers being paid fairly?

We’ve been chewing over these questions, and in so doing we’ve realized that there’s a lot of improvements to be made in the way food products are made and food companies are run. We’re not perfect, but we’re working hard to get close. Our goal is to create a company that we can be proud of so that you can, too.

And to further refresh your conscience, Bumbleroot will reinvest a portion of its revenues into food, water, and education projects in its supplying communities so that these amazing people can continue to provide us with excellent products.

Crowd Funding Spotlight: Everly – drink mixes made right

Let’s free ourselves from artificial ingredients with a drink that’s actually healthy, easy on the Earth, and designed for a full life.

  • Launched: Apr 9, 2013
  • Funding ends: May 9, 2013

What we’re doing:

We’re creating a line of natural drink mixes in a super artificial market. It’s called Everly, and it looks like this:

  • Natural Ingredients like sweeteners from plants and colors from fruits. See our ingredients lists.
  • Nutrients from fruit and plant extracts.
  • No calories, because those should come from food, right?
  • Great taste. Before this Kickstarter project, hundreds of people across the country signed up for a free sample packet of Everly in the mail. See what they said.

Why we need you:

We’ve poured our life savings into creating three flavors and preparing a production run, but now we need your help to fund the first full batch of all three flavors.

Why it matters:

Through creating a better beverage we want to contribute to a better world:

  • It begins with better ingredients going into people’s bodies. We think of our packets as little investments in long-term health. Day after day, that’ll add up to a happier, healthier group of humans. That gets us giddy.
  • Every purchase of Everly might mean one less bottle in a landfill. Considering only 2 in 10 bottles are recycled, that’s exciting environmental potential.

We dream of the day when we’re making our packets from plant-based materials, sourcing ingredients from farmers we’ve met, and exploring ways we can use hydration to help others. This is the first, crucial step towards a future of being a good business. Drink mixes made right, making the world right - that’s where we’re going. Help us get there.


Pomegranate Maqui Berry: Tart and refreshing, with antioxidants from pomegranate and maqui berry extracts. This is our all-around flavor, for healthy hydration you can mix up wherever, whenever you want.

Peach Mango: Smooth and succulent, with guarana seed extract. This is our go-getter flavor, for when you’re at the starting line of that 5k, or at the summit of that 14k.


Green Tea Passion Fruit: Cool and calming, with all the goodness of green tea. This is our stay-sharp flavor, for when you’re tackling that midnight deadline or devouring the last chapter of your latest read.

See our nutrition facts here.

Hole Punched Packets:

We'll be able to hole-punch this batch of Everly packets so you can clip them onto your bottle and carry them with you wherever. It’s small details like this that add up to make a world of difference.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We’ve already completed a tiny batch of our pomegranate maqui berry flavor and smoothed out the kinks in our production process. Our ingredients are being sourced and the packaging is ready, but there are always risks to delivering Kickstarter rewards on time:

Ingredients: While we know where to source all of our ingredients, unexpected events like a global shortage of stevia leaf may affect our production timelines.

Hole-punched packets: We haven’t made packets with the hole punch in them yet, so we may experience delays in production as we tweak this part of the process.
