Can you briefly tell us a little about your company/ job?

We make a guilt-free, plant-based snack. Our product tastes like a dessert treat, yet is gluten, dairy and soy free. I’m an accidental entrepreneur who turned a homemade snack that my husband made for me after I finished my breast cancer treatment and I needed a clean snack, into a business.

What’s the most rewarding aspect of what you do?

I love when we give someone a sample and they are surprised at how good it tastes. I also like when people who hear our story about creating something good out of something bad are inspired. Additionally, I love to be able to pay it forward by donating 1% of all of our sales to Breast Cancer research through BCRF.

In only one sentence, what would you say is the secret to your success?

We make a plant-based, gluten, dairy and soy free product that actually tastes good!
