|Marshall and Elliott Rader|
So here's a bit of background on these two fellas and their great product. Elliott and Marshall both had big corporate jobs that required them to travel the globe. Being able to do so successfully while on a gluten-free diet presented a challenge. They'd take snack bars with them, unsure when their next safe meal would be. Problem was, they couldn't find a bat that 1) tasted great 2) had simple, healthy ingredients and 3) had plenty of protein to keep them feeling full.
So in 2010 they created their own. They found a great pastry chef along the way who helped them perfect The GF Bar, Bites and other recipes. What started as a small company with two brothers has now turned into a business that ships across the country and around the world.
Marshall and Elliott are great at spreading Celiac Disease and gluten-free awareness on their website as well. They have a very informative blog and they have a great informative newsletter that often includes news headlines. In addition to sharing knowledge, they're willing to share their product with you as well! Two winners will receive a sample pack of their flavors. Enter through the Rafflecopter progam below.
