About this project
What are Veggie-Infused Snack Bites?
Think Coconut Butter Truffles made with Organic Veggies! They're delicious, convenient, and healthy with a mildly sweet flavor, perfect to curb cravings with nutrition to boot.
EllieFinn’s is the only organic snack that provides a ½ cup serving of vegetables in each package. The delicious all-natural taste is sweetened only with fruit so it’s a healthy snack with no refined sugars.
EllieFinn’s will be certified Organic, Gluten-Free, Non-Gmo, Vegan, Paleo-friendly, and Nut Free. They come in 3 varieties currently with many more planned: Strawberry Pomegranate, Chocolate Sun Butter, and Apple Cinnamon.
We have 2 children and our business to take care of so we find our family misses vegetables often due to grouchy days and traveling. So we knew we had to create a snack that could help our family and others' eat their healthful vegetables even when it's seemingly impossible. We came up with EllieFinn's: the delicious new treats that bring veggies to your guilt-free snack break.
...SO... SNACK YOUR VEGETABLES!
9 out of 10 Americans aren't eating their recommended daily amount of vegetables which is one cup per day for a toddler, 2.5 cups for an adult. If you’ve got kids, imagine a cup of diced beets and ask yourself if they are eating this many vegetables in a day. I know mine aren’t! Even adults have trouble finding 2.5 cups of veggies in their daily diet. To make matters worse, snacking habits have exploded across America but most other snacks on the market are nutritionally empty, sugary, highly processed junk food: even some of the “natural” stuff!
That’s why we spent dozens of hours on over 50 prototypes that resulted in a wonderful recipe for EllieFinn’s Veggie-Infused Snack Bites. Every package will be made with over 1/2 cup of undetectable organic vegetables like spinach, beets, and carrots. That means that in every snack session with EllieFinn’s you’ll be getting 20% of your recommended daily amount of vegetables!
If you’ve got picky eating little ones like me, you’ll be happy to know that snack time with our veggie bites will give them over 50% of their daily vegetables! But they'll never know they're getting so much nutrition, they'll be tasting Chocolate Sun Butter, Strawberry Pomegranate, and Apple Cinnamon.
We've also got some great rewards! Not only will you get some of the first bags of Veggie-Infused Snack Bites but you can sport your support with some sweet EllieFinn's T-shirts and Stickers. Join the Finn & Ellie Club to get your healthy snack supply refilled monthly!
You can add a t-shirt to your order by increasing your pledge amount over the reward requirement. Just add $20 to any order and we will be sure to include a t-shirt along with whatever you've ordered!
We know how to craft quality natural products. We have been making Sweetgrass Granola for 3 years now and are a well established local brand in Kentucky with many die hard fans. We have the equipment and the know-how to make EllieFinn's delicious and healthy. And most importantly: We care about healthy snacking. Our dream is to grow EllieFinn's to the point that we can have real impact to influence food culture towards a more nutrient dense diet. With your help we will grow to the point that we can contract with local farmers for the vegetables that make their way into our products!
We calculated our campaign goal to be as low as possible to launch the EllieFinn's brand. This graph shows some of the pressing needs of a food startup:
