Meet the Interns!

We’re bar-heads (bär-heds):  a person who works so closely with snack bars that they neglect the real world…and sometimes, their interns)  How could we have been so silly– so forgetful!? Let’s meet the interns!

A month ago, we were lucky enough to have four incredible individuals join our team as summer interns. It’s been a busy month for all of us, and we admittedly forgot to formally introduce you to these incredible individuals.

Without further adieu, meet our Fabulous Summer 2012 Interns….

    Have you thought about connecting with 99 cent only stores with your product and concept?

    I think if you could get the bars there and sell them for two dollars (or 1.99) one dollar could go to feeding a child and .99 to the store.

    I know I go there at least once each week just to see what’s there and I would buy one of your bars on every visit.

    Just a thought.
