1) Better Blends
For almost a decade, John Redmond has been on a personal journey to find foods he can trust. Like millions of others living with IBS or general gut-sensitivities finding food options that don't bother your gut is next to impossible, which is what lead him to create Better Blends: a thoughtful
nutrition company that keep those with gut issues in mind.

3) Explorer Cold Brew
An adventure-seeker and risk-taker, Cason Crane has traveled to over 100 countries on all seven continents. He was the first openly LGBT and fifth youngest person to climb Mt. Everest and the Seven Summits - the highest mountain on each continent, a feat he achieved while raising money and awareness for LGBTQ suicide prevention. It was on these adventures that he discovered the magic of coffee, and he is now driven to introduce some of the world's best cold brew coffees to you through Explorer Cold Brew. Cason is always looking for new products and spends his time perfecting Explorer's brews so that they represent the world's best cold brew coffee.

Wunderkeks was founded in 2012 in Guatemala City on the idea that childlike joy is a value to uphold. Its mission statement is to "nurture the inner child. We make cookies because they make us happy. And, sure, who's not happy with a cookie? But for us, coming from a... not so LGBTQ-friendly place like our home country, the joy a cookie could bring was, at certain times in our lives, literally life-saving.
Growing up, being actually happy didnt seem possible, for many reasons. So we coped by creating: Luis became a photographer, Hans became a baker. When we met was that we both had made careers out of creating the world we wished we lived in.
With time-the colors, the characters, the disco balls and the dinosaurs in tutus came alive. We are well aware that, for Millennials on the older side, this seems childish and immature. That is exactly the point. Wunderkeks is our little playground, and we hope to have as many of you as possible to share it
We hope you will think of Wunderkeks as just that: the little corner of the world where you are, for a few minutes, innocent, careless, happy.

Mmmly was born from a personal struggle with sugary and processed food that led to an unhealthy relationship with food and a realization that loving yourself doesn't just stem from what you do each day, but also from what you eat. When I realized that food is essential for helping us grow into our best selves, I began changing my life by changing the food I ate. I decided it was only right to share it
with others. I believe everyone deserves to know how important food is for an amazing life, so I set out on a path to change the way food is made for all of us. After a year of experimenting with hundreds of recipes, Mmmly was born. Healthy but delicious cookies made with functional ingredients that work for you, not against you.

6) The After Bar
After years of eating protein bars with unbalanced macronutrient ratios, low-quality ingredients, and intolerable aftertastes - We decided enough was enough.
While creating our ideal protein bar, we discovered PureForm CD - a Citrus-derived CD. The idea of ideal macronutrients, unbeatable flavor, and muscle-soothing CBD felt like a match made in heaven. By combining science-backed nutrition and satisfaction in mind, we created The After Bar- the first muscle recovery protein bar powered by plant-based proteins, Citrus-derived CD, and nutrient-rich superfoods - to support your goals and taste buds.

7) District Snacks
Hi, I'm Luke, the founder of District Snacks, and I have a major sweet tooth! I also love going to the gym and try my best to eat healthy…most of the time. I was on a mission to recreate those indulgent and nostalgic flavors we all grew up loving in a
better-for-you form. I dreamt up District Snacks towards the beginning of the pandemic and 2 years later, after extensive R&D, I finally launched February 2022
We contain nothing artificial and are packed with better-for-you quality ingredients like MCT oil and almonds.
So basically, anything that you would think of pairing with a frosting or a nut butter, swap in a District Snacks spread to satisfy your sweet tooth without the sugar crash!
