Snacking is a favorite pastime for many. Whether to satisfy mini hunger pangs in between meals, or to keep one awake and alert while at work, people are never without a good excuse to bring out the snacks. But this everyday routine is not always healthy, especially if the food is loaded with sugar, refined carbs, and saturated fats. While there are healthier alternatives for those who always feel peckish, such options are not as satisfying as their calorie-heavy counterparts. Tired of the usual granola and protein bars, the creators of Youtopia Snacks decided to take matters into their own hands and create the perfectly tasty and healthy light snack.
Youtopia Snacks’ founders wanted to create something lighter than a 250-calorie protein bar, healthier than those sugar-filled granola bars, and more filling than boring 100-calorie packs. It took a lot of research, test runs, and consultations with dieticians and nutritionists. What started as a business school project has now evolved into a highly successful product that is not just nutritious and delicious, but aims to inspires smiles while snacking.
“Our snacks were born out of a real issue: bad snacking habits at work. Our team realized that we pay way more attention to what we eat at lunch and dinner than what we put in our mouth between meals, especially while working. We even try to work out regularly. But those salads and squats weren’t paying off,” says founder, Jesse Shapiro.
Their products are made of ingredients that are high in protein and fiber, and are low in sugar and refined carbs. Youtopia Snacks have become a staple in thousands of offices across the country, including some of the most innovative, health-conscious corporations like Apple, Google, and LinkedIn.
Youtopia Snacks offers a well-balanced macro profile (high protein, low sugar, low carb) in a low calorie, portion-controlled package. Each flavor is only 4 Weight Watchers Smart Points per package. The portion size per package is just right to avoid over-snacking, and the snacks are also shelf stable, which make them excellent office, hiking, and travel snacks.
Youtopia Snacks come in three delicious, gluten-free, and non-GMO flavors that each contain only 130 calories. “Espresso Obsesso” is the perfect snack to keep one going while at work, containing a mix of cocoa espresso cookie puffs, dark chocolate espresso beans, and roasted almonds. “Bananas for Chocolate” is ideal for health and fitness conscious sweet tooths, with organic banana chips, dark chocolate sunflower seeds, and cocoa espresso cookie puffs. For those who feel like snacking on something that is salty, savory, and tangy, there’s “So Money Honey Mustard,” with honey mustard jalapeno sticks, southwest fava crisps, and roasted almonds.
