Did you know that over 32 million people are affected by food allergies in the United States alone? That’s a lot of people, and it’s steadily growing from year to year. With numbers like these, it’s more important than ever to know what’s going into your food and where it’s being produced and made. That was the catalyst for popular food brand Safe + Fair.
Friends and co-founders Dave Leyrer and Pete Najarian both have children with nut allergies and found themselves frustrated over the lack of safe foods available for their kids and the constant need to scrutinize every food label they came in contact with. Many options were hard to find, or extremely pricey. Their solution was to create a brand that didn’t cause worry, providing allergen-free food that was both safe and tasty, especially for kids. Thus, Safe + Fair was born, offering consumers clear information on allergens at affordable prices. Their website even makes it super easy — allowing you to shop by allergy, food type or diet.
Their Birthday Cake Granola is easily one of my favorites, free from the top nine allergens (no eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, milk, wheat, soy, shellfish, fish and is non-gmo and gluten-free), and instantly addictive. Perfect for topping your yogurt, cereal, ice cream, or just plain on its own, it’s a product I think literally every human on the planet needs to try. (It’s that good!) But the brand is constantly coming out with new and inventive flavors, with other delectable granolas including Honeycrisp Apple Pie, Blueberry Cinnamon, and Strawberry Shortcake.
They also produce insanely delicious drizzled popcorn, which comes in all the same flavors as its granola, and is as equally addictive. You can opt for the classic Dark Chocolaty Drizzled Popcorn (my personal favorite), or go a little wild with flavors like Key Lime Pie or the All American Summer. Similarly, their popcorn is non-gmo, gluten-free, vegan and contains no eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, shellfish or fish, making it a safe snacking option for many. Even if you don’t have any of these specific food allergies, I highly recommend picking up a bag or two (or even a bundle!) to try. You won’t regret it; I sure didn’t. Plus, now I have safe snacking options to share with all my friends.
