Jamin Chapernich helped us race test our new Natural Delights Medjool date energy bars in his CAT 3 Men's road race.
Jamin Chapernich liked our new energy bars so much he’s considering building a new frame mounted race rack specifically designed to hold our 10 pack cartons!
After a near 30 mile breakaway lead Jamin Chapernich took home a top 10 in his CAT 3 Men's road race.
Packing some serious heat!

We’re pleased to report that everyone loved our new Natural Delights Medjool Date Energy Bars and fresh Medjool dates at the 2017 Sea Otter Classic.

This year was our first time exhibiting at Sea Otter and we were thankful to be given "Official Fruit" status coming into the event. Cyclists love the fact that Medjool dates have 50% more potassium by weight than bananas and are a natural source of good carbs.

Even though this year’s Sea Otter is a wrap, we’re still buzzing from all the racing, new bikes, sweet gear and all the new friends we made! Here are a few of our favorite photo’s from this year’s event. Enjoy!
