Last month I reviewed Pure Bar, a company out of California that produces all natural and organic varieties of gluten free fruit and nut bars. With a cornucopia of flavors and a mix of creative ingredients (like rice protein and almond butter), Pure Bar caters to a sophisticated palate and health conscious consumer. Each of the nine bars I sampled has a different personality and appeal. (For my comprehensive product review, see this link.)
I recently contacted Veronica Bosgraaf, the founder of the still small company, to see if she might be able to support my trek with a donation. Within a few short days, I was delighted by a surprise box at my doorstep. Trying to reflect a cool, calm demeanor, I waited until I brought the box into my apartment before clapping my hands together with excitement like a five year old.
I can’t express enough gratitude to Pure Bar for the donation. I understand the resource limitations of small companies and am touched that Veronica would be able to devote some of those resources toward the accomplishment of my A.T. goal.
And with such an assortment of flavors at my disposal, I’ll surely never experience a dreary day on the trail.
