Trailnuggets were created with simple goals in mind. We wanted to create delicious, healthy bars to fuel our adventures. We rejected the idea that smart nutrition has to be complicated, and we sourced our inspiration and ingredients directly from nature. Over the course of a year we worked with athletes, adventurers, and food lovers young and old to develop three unique flavors. When feedback was great, we knew they were ready for the world.
When you look at the ingredients list of any Trailnugget flavor you will find refreshingly few words, all of which will be easily recognizable. Each ingredient in every one of our bars earns its place on the list by supplying energy, improving taste, or helping to make the consistency of the bar just right. Many ingredients do all three! Here are a few of our common ingredients and why we chose them.
Dates are the superfood base of all of our bars. Nature jam packs them with energy in a form that is easily accessed by athletes on the go. Their taste is mellow, their texture is just right, and they put the “nugget” inTrailnuggets.
Each of our three Trailnugget flavors also contain nuts. Almonds lead the charge and bring a triple punch of calories, protein, and texture to the mix. Peanuts make our Coco Apocalypse flavor a familiar favorite.
If our bar names have fruit flavors in them, it’s because they have fruit in them. You won’t find a razzleberry in a Trailnugget because razzleberries are fake. Only real fruit is allowed into our kitchen.
Oils! When you bite into a Trailnugget one of the first sensations you might experience is the pleasant kick of an essential oil. We insist that each of our flavors are punchy, pleasant, and unambiguous, and oils make it possible to do that naturally.
Our first priority for Trailnuggets was to create an excellent bar that meets the needs of athletes on the go, but good nutrition and great flavor are important to everyone, not just healthy fitness types. In the early days while we were creating our bars, it was not uncommon for our testers to admit sneaking a Trailnugget into a kid’s lunchbox, eating one at a desk, or stashing one in a handbag for a mid-day pick-me-up. Our testers were not alone, and we also admit to snacking on nuggets aboard airplanes, while camping, riding bullet trains, and yes, at our own desks.
In addition to being downright delicious, our all natural approach led to Trailnuggets complying with a number of standards that are important to food lovers everywhere
Lemon Almond "Hot Date" was the very first Trailnugget flavor we invented.
We wanted a bar with a signature zest, so we started with our date base, added some almonds to get the texture just right, and finally added JUST enough lemon peel and lemon oil to surprise your taste buds on your first bite. Our bar is naturally sweet, chewy, and delicious.
But wait… “only four ingredients” you say? That’s correct! Dates, Almonds, Lemon Peel, Lemon oil. Now that’s a bar that you can eat with some peace of mind that it hasn’t been meddled with.
At 210 calories at the 60g size, we’ve packed it with enough energy to get you up that hill, down that road, or through the day.
BEETS! That word makes some people incredibly excited and it makes others flash back to horrible childhood memories.
Love ’em or hate ’em, beets are all the rage these days and with good reason. Have you seen the nutritional pack they punch? Have you seen the latest write ups on their super properties as an athletic fuel? One word: Nitrates!
Don’t worry a bit though, our Just Beet It flavor does not taste anything like the beets you might have eaten for dinner. We took our date base and added orange and cranberry to the mix, along with those beets.
The result is a bar with a fantastic sweet-tart flavor profile. Still skeptical? According to sales and feedback, this is our most popular flavor.
Ingredients: Dates, Almonds, Dried Cranberries (Cranberries, Cane Sugar, Canola Oil), Beets, Orange Oil, Salt.
Peanut butter and Chocolate may be to the food world what Romeo and Juliet were to the written word, a romance for the ages -but with a MUCH better ending!
Of the flavors we make, this one stands out as epic.
On the outside of the bar is our signature date base infused with copious quantities of dark cocoa. Think brownie, but without the guilt. On the inside of the bar is a soft filling of 100% all natural peanut butter. The added peanut content gives this bar a protein boost and a few extra calories as well, so it’s the Trailnugget we grab the most when we want to crush our cravings for a snack.
Ingredients: Dates, Almonds, Peanuts, Cocoa Powder, Peanut Flour, Powdered Sugar, Salt.
