In 2011, Allison Wright, founder of OWL Energy Bars, began making her energy bars in a commercial home kitchen in her hometown of Shelburne, Vermont. An outdoor enthusiast, her goal was to create a portable meal using gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and non-GMO ingredients. Each ingredient is responsibly sourced and specifically chosen for its ability to naturally sustain your health and energy.
“When I introduce someone new to my product and see their excitement and genuine appreciation for the OWL Bar, I am so inspired to keep making the best products I can,” Allison said.
Why We Love Them: These wholesome, Vermont-made bars fit our “grab-and-go” summer lifestyle. This time of year we’re constantly throwing snacks in a bag and heading out the door … to the nearest lake, trail, or bike path. While the sun is high in the sky, we don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. We feel good about the all-natural ingredients (take a look at the full ingredient list here …): gluten-free oats, raw honey, dried fruit, and seeds and nuts. Plus, they’re just plain yummy.
