Mush Apple Cinnamon – ETA: Available Now!
A classic pairing meets an innovative twist with benefits to boost. Mush’s overnight oats mix slices of perfectly tart apple and warm cinnamon together to create a breakfast that’s never tasted so fresh, and so cool.
Mush’s purpose is to help people maximize their potential by enabling them to feel, think, and do better. And to encourage you to ‘start’, even if you don’t know how.
Ashley co-founded mush in 2015 with the conviction that easy, delicious, and nutritious food can elevate the world in powerful ways. Early in life, Ashley’s sister was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The experience left an indelible mark on her, and she cultivated a strong belief that better outcomes begin with better food. Ashley began each day with a run and soon realized that even on Wall Street, it was hard to access nutritious food. She brought her own ‘mush’ to work, inspired by her favorite “hack” as a kid: cereal and oatmeal soaked in milk. She had discovered a white space that was equal parts healthy, delicious, and convenient. Then, she quit her job and got to work.
Today, mush is the leading brand in its category, powered by a small but mighty team of passionate individuals who love to help others feel, think, and do better.

About Field Trip:
Field trip is a fast-growing brand formed by 3 friends out of a NYC apartment in 2010 who saw a need to transform meat snacks alternatives in a broken marketplace after tasting their first craft jerky on the ski slopes in Vermont. They saw the need for healthier protein-rich snacks that didn’t sacrifice quality and taste. A health-lifestyle brand, Field trip is aimed at providing delicious and versatile snacks. Today, field trip offers a robust line of meat snacks.

About Harmless Harvest®:
Harmless harvest® makes the most amazing coconut water in the most ethical way possible. It’s a work in progress, but they’re committed to growing our standards and living up to their name.
In order to realize their vision of a future where the climate impact from coconut agriculture is net-positive, they know they need real action. That’s why, in 2020, Harmless Harvest® partnered with the Danone Ecosystem Fund and Deutsche Gesellschaft Für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to launch the Regenerative Coconuts Agriculture Project (RECAP), which seeks to develop and implement a regenerative agriculture model for coconuts in Thailand. This effort will move Harmless Harvest® beyond the standards of organic farming and into a model where farmers realize better personal and planetary outcomes by transitioning to regenerative agriculture practices.
For the communities where they farm and bottle, Harmless Harvest®’s commitment translates to new school uniforms, water filtration systems, and mobile medical trucks for preventative healthcare like check-ups and screenings. Harmless Harvest® is also Fair For Life Certified, a process that ensures our commitment to social accountability and fair trade. For Harmless Harvest®, this means being diligent in their practices and considering everyone — and everything — they affect.
In conclusion, Regenerative organic agriculture, upcycling, sustainable packaging, heritage-rooted ingredients, functional beverages are the trending snack and beverage categories for 2023.
