“Getting back to nature and packing only what we need.” So reads the caption on an Instagram post for Real Food Bar, a plant-based nutritious snack, and which is accompanied by an “in the wild” shot of the company’s Cherry Cashew Bar. That caption aptly sums up Real Food Bar’s company ethos.

First created in 2016 by Anna and Sean Sullivan of Austin, Texas, each Real Food Bar (there are two other flavors—Cacao Sea Salt and Peanut Butter) has balanced macronutrient ratios from organic and real food ingredients designed to give you a nutritious but filling snack whether it’s for in-between meals or out on an adventure.

Each bar contains five superfoods, slow release carbs, prebiotic fiber, low glycemic sugar from organic clover honey, and plant-based protein. Healthy ingredients you need for a satiating snack while on the go but nothing you don’t need, like artificial sweeteners.

Another naturally sweet fact about Real Food Bar? Each bar package features a photo of a favorite location the couple has hiked from Kahana Bay in Oahu, to Columbia River Gorge in Portland, and to the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica.

Real Food Bars spent two years being in product development (the Sullivans may have overworked their food processor) before landing in HEB stores in Texas in early 2019. Today, you can purchase Real Food Bars directly from their site (variety boxes and subscription offers are also available) or at HEB and Royal Blue Grocery Stores as well as online through Wal-Mart, Bubble and Savorful. Each bar costs $2.99 or $34.99 for a box of 12. Might as well stock up for all those nature walks you’re takin these days!
