“Clean eating” is the new gold standard in today’s snack category. Consumers are becoming more and more discerning about what goes into their food. But they aren’t willing to give up their craving for sweet confections, so the demand for better-for-you alternatives to candy bars has never been greater.
Pereg Natural Foods has answered the call. The all-natural ancient grain and spice specialists have been on board with the “less is more” movement for more than 100 years. Now, for the first time, they’re offering ready-to-eat snack bars that satisfy the sweet tooth with only simple, nutritious, all-organic ingredients.
Making its debut at the summer Fancy Food Show in NYC, these brand new Raw Bars and Quinoa Bars from Pereg Natural Foods pack a burst of flavor – and no more than six natural ingredients – into eight delicious, mind-blowing combinations, with no refined sugar or corn syrup.
Pereg bars are individually wrapped, and sold in 6-pack boxes and single units at MSRP of $2.50 per bar, making them a convenient grab-and-go treat for the office or for a post-workout burst of energy. Parents can feel good about packing healthy Pereg bars in their children’s lunch boxes or serving them as a nutritious after-school snack.
