Buddha Brands ™ Cleans the Keto Alley with New Hungry Buddha® Herbal Keto Bars
MONTREAL – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Buddha Marksâ¢, maker of healthier plant-based foods and beverages, today announced the expansion of Hungry BuddhaÂ® Keto Bars into the U.S. market with the goal of cleaning up the keto aisle. In 2012, the founders set out to disrupt the market by creating a brand that reflects their conscious effort to live better, eat better, and do better. The new protein bars embody exactly that and are KETO DONE CLEANâ¢ , available in four deliciously delicious flavors: Chocolate Chip, Coconut Cacao, Espresso Brownie, and Triple Chocolate.
Over 57% of Americans reduce their sugar intake * and 52% eat more plant-based foods â . âMy co-founders and I were always looking for options that were better for you and we found that the majority of keto products just weren’t that healthy; it was impossible to find keto bars made without animal ingredients, artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols and palm oil, âsaid Chris Magnone, CEO and co-founder of Buddha Brandsâ¢. âWith the launch of Hungry BuddhaÂ® Keto Bars, we’re excited to provide people with better, cleaner options with a bar that’s low in sugar, plant-based, and made with clean ingredients that taste great. Low-sugar, plant-based moves aren’t just fads; healthy lifestyle choices are here to stay. Hungry buddhaÂ® Keto bars make for better snacking, so our hope is to inspire even more people to be aware of the foods they are putting in their bodies.
Hungry buddhaÂ® Keto bars only contain 1-2g of sugar, 9-10g of plant protein, and 4g of net carbs per bar. The new range is certified Keto, Vegan and Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten-free and peanut-free. These are the first keto bars on the market made without the use of palm oils, sugar alcohols, dairy, or soy. Buddha BrandsÂ® decided to create a bar that was KETO DONE CLEANâ¢ using only clean, natural ingredients: MCT oil and sunflower seed butter as a source of healthy fat, pea protein as a herbal fuel source and monk fruit for a touch of natural sweetness . In the interest of environmental sustainability, a portion of every sale supports 1% for the Planet organizations with a measurable impact.
Hungry BuddhaÂ® Keto Bars can be purchased at Amazon and Thrive Market, and, thanks to the overwhelming enthusiasm of consumers and retailers, are already present in more than 1,500 natural independent retailers and grocery stores nationwide, including Cabbage, Wegman, Meijer, HEB, Coborn’s and Giant Foods.
“Although 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, including the bar category, we are extremely grateful for the opportunities and support we have received so far, and we look forward to what lies ahead,” Magnone said. “We are also very pleased to announce that Keto Hungry BuddhaÂ® Bars will soon be on sale in select Costco and Whole Foods regions in early 2021.”
Bars are distributed through UNFI, KeHE and Imperial. Available in single 1.4oz (40g) bars and multi-pack (12 x 1.4oz) with an MSRP of $ 2.49 per bar.
