Greenbelly Hiking Bars

A few months ago I was alerted to a guy called Chris Cage, an American with a tremendous amount of global hiking and biking experience (yup he has been to NZ). He wanted to develop an all-round lightweight food bar for his adventures (and ours!).

He needed to raise capital and through kickstarter.com he posted his appeal. I loved his entrepreneurial spirit and threw some bucks into the kitty.

He has now launched Greenbelly. I have tasted the new product (see pics below) and they are bloody fantastic! Comes in three flavours. I love the re-seal-able packaging. This and the design was developed via surveys on his kickstarted site.

Greenbelly is organic, gluten free and 1/3 daily food balance.

I am a great fan of Em Bars (Emily Miazga), but these new bars from Chris well and truly match.

They are not available in NZ yet (watch this space!) and I guess if you like Em Bars and do get to taste Greenbelly, nationality may prevail (the later being American and given current exchange rate may be more expensive).

You can order online and Chris will send to you. Check out his website at http://www.greenbelly.co/

  1. One important challenge most hikers face is that the correct selection of food. we tend to square measure at risk of continually opt for the tastiest and nutritive foods once reception, however after we hit the track, things will get untidy. http://survival-mastery.com/diy/food_prep/hiking-food.html


Hey, thanks for you contribution - I monitor my blog weekly. I will reply with comments, ideas and suggestions ASAP - In the meantime, remember, hiking is an outdoors experience to enjoy, not an army boot camp training exercise!!
