Happy October, snackers! This month we want to focus on the assortment of high protein options that we offer. If there is one consistent request that does not fail to be present in the snack world, it is the need for protein. We are always on the lookout for a new snack that tastes good but also provides the protein that all your hard-working employees are asking for! We have our tried-and-true staples available like hard boiled eggs, nuts, trail mixes, and jerky, but we really want to highlight the newest options. Below are the up and comers on the protein scene!

Ripple Plant Based Milk

We now have a plant-based, vegan, high calcium, and protein packed milk. Ripple milks have 8g of protein and are soy, gluten, lactose, and nut free. It’s the perfect grab and go item packed with energy!

Flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate

Field Trip Jerky

You may be familiar with the brand Field Trip as we have carried their jerkies for a while now, but they have come out with some awesome new flavor profiles that are sure to impress your jerky lovers.

Flavors: Gochujang, Buffalo Chicken, Everything Bagel

Perfect Bar
