Wild Tonic

Wild Tonic ProductsBlue is the bees’ favorite color when foraging for pollen—did you know? Holly Lyman does. It’s why her brand of probiotic beverages—Wild Tonic® Jun Kombucha, is packaged in cans and bottles tinted in vivid shades of blue. Because Holly’s journey to discovering Jun, a rare cousin of traditional kombucha made with honey—began with her love of bees. Wild Tonic Jun is fermented with SCOBY, like classic kombucha, and made in small batches with organic ingredients. But it’s the honey that elevates its flavor to be as vibrant as the red hues of the Arizona landscape where it’s brewed. Refreshing, subtle, and with no vinegary aftertaste—try one of Holly’s favorites, like Blueberry Basil or Mango Ginger, and see for yourself. You’ll be supporting healthy bee populations while you sip.

Pipcorn Heirloom Snacks

And ever since, Jen, Jeff, and Jeff’s wife Teresa have been reinventing snacking with heirloom corn—which matters for the planet too. Heirloom seeds, unlike hybrids, go way back.

Moonshot Snack ProductsWant to help the planet? Start snacking! But not anything will do—it’s Moonshot™, the world’s first climate-friendly snack brand we’re talking about. When founder, Julia Collins, knew she was going to be a mom, she faced a weighty question— “how do I create a better world for my tiny human?” And for Julia, the answer was launching a climate-friendly food movement. It’s why Moonshot’s “crazy delicious” organic crackers are made with flour from a mill just 85 miles from the bakery where they’re crafted. And that flour comes from wheat regeneratively grown only 2 miles from the mill. It’s also why this carbon-neutral certified brand tracks, sequesters, reduces, and offsets its greenhouse gas emissions throughout every detail of its operations. So grab a box of Margherita Pizza or Rosemary Garlic, call your friends, and start snacking—for the love of the planet!

Bakery On Main

Bakery On Main ProductsBreakfast. When you love it—it’s the best way to start the day! But when gluten-free is a must, this iconic meal can have limitations. And that’s what inspired Michael Smulders to create Bakery On Main’s first delicious gluten-free granola. Running a health food store in the 1990s, he saw customers with gluten allergies unable to find tasty, nutritious alternatives. So he started making his own. His customers couldn’t get enough—and Bakery On Main was born! These days, Michael’s wife Melodie and her team carry on his legacy of crafting Certified Gluten-Free, Non-GMO Project Verified deliciousness, like Superfood Strawberry Shortcake Instant Oatmeal and Crunchy Cluster Cranberry Almond Maple Granola! They make breakfast or midnight snacking simple and satisfying, whether you’re gluten-free or not, because “life is easy on Main Street!”
