“KITCHEN GOURMET” – This Saves Lives Offers a Tasty Snack Bar with a Life-Saving Mission; Buy a Bar - Feed a Child!

Mar 27, 2020
This Saves Lives co-founders Kristen Bell, Ryan Devlin, Todd Grinnell and Ravi Patel believe all children, no matter what their circumstances, deserve the opportunity to thrive. When they started back in 2013, they knew they couldn’t be the only ones who want to end malnutrition, and dreamed of inviting everyone to help. Through a unique social impact model, This Saves Lives became a social platform that makes delicious snack bars while empowering people to make a positive change on malnutrition. Every time you make a purchase you send life-saving food to a child in need. First in their hearts, then in their kitchens, those at This Saves Lives work to make an incredible product that fuels millions of people to do something radical to help end hunger.

This Saves Lives bars come in a variety of flavors, including the very popular Madagascar Vanilla Almond & Honey, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Wild Blueberry & Pistachio. Others include Dark Chocolate & Cherry, Dark Chocolate & Coconut, and PB & J.

What makes the Madagascar Vanilla Almond & Honey flavor so awesome is that it is perfectly balanced with notes of real Madagascar vanilla, honey, crunchy California almonds, and flaxseeds. Vanilla is a classic but Madagascar Vanilla is a true adventure!

The Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter bar is made with creamy peanut butter, dark chocolate, and peanut chunks. It’s better than eating peanut butter straight out of the jar!

The Wild Blueberry & Pistachio flavor is a delicious and wholesome blend of wild blueberries with pistachios and pumpkin seeds. It’s juicy, nutty, and all around wild!

This Saves Lives’ new products include a line of kid’s bars (3 flavors, including S’mores Blast, Chocolate Chip “Dino” mite, and Rockin’ Straw-beary). In addition to being Non-GMO, gluten-free, and Kosher like its classic flavors, the kids bars also have one full serving of fruits and veggies per bar, are produced in a nut-free facility, and are free of the top 8 most common allergens.

"I hope you love your This Saves Lives snack bars! They taste so good, and they're good for you. Most importantly, every time you buy a bar you provide life-saving food to a child in need. It's that simple. Join us in our mission to change the future." -Kristen Bell
