In our Smartish Neighbors series, we highlight the hardworking, creative small businesses that keep Austin smartish. This week we discover the organic adventures of Bearded Brothers.
In case you haven’t set foot in a grocery store lately, energy bars are kind of popular right now. And with good reason – they’re quick, easy snacks that give you a healthy boost of energy. But many bars rely on ingredients that sound like they came from a GNC rather than a place with actual food. (“Excuse me, where is the hydrolyzed milk protein isolate aisle?” …said no one ever).
That’s why we love our Smartish Neighbor, Bearded Brothers. They make nutrition bars using 100% real food, and are organic, vegan, gluten-free and soy-free. Oh yeah, and they taste amazing. Our personal fave is the Bodacious Blueberry Vanilla. It’s got organic almonds, dried blueberries, and freshly ground raw vanilla bean, and tastes deliciously homemade.
You can find Bearded Bros in a rapidly expanding number of grocery stores and coffee shops, or you can get them right from the source at beardedbros.com. You can even subscribe to get your favorite flavor delivered automatically to your door each month. Maximum healthy snacks for minimum effort? That’s a smartish solution if we’ve ever heard one.
