Fossil Fuel: The Healthy Way To Donut

$22,647

STRETCH GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAL!

Thank you guys so much for helping us meet our goal which will now allow us to gain proper nutritional claim certs. You've inspired us to dream even bigger and if we hit 25k we will be able to also order our initial round of inventory for production as well as finalize our 6-pack packaging! We couldn't do this without you, keep spreading the word, together we will make the world a healthier place!

It began with the decision to create a product that would fill our need for a snack solution low in sugar. Throughout discussions, experiments and continuous research on current lifestyle diets, we concluded there was no reason to leave anybody out from enjoying our product. Thus, KPV was born. A fusion of Keto, Paleo and Vegan lifestyles coming together in a convenient snack solution; the donut. Fossil Fuel’s KPV donuts are designed to bring physical energy, enhance mental stamina and increase metabolisms. Created for those in need of a convenient energy solution without spiking blood sugar levels or breaking dietary restrictions. By offering sustainable energy solutions, we hope to make it easier for a busy schedule to co-exist with peak performance levels.

Did you know your brain is made up of 60% fat? How do we expect it to run efficiently off of sugar?

Fueling from carbs creates a spike in blood sugar and causes a crash shortly after. Causing your body to work in overdrive to constantly stoke the energy fire. Fat for fuel is an efficient way to process energy and will keep the fire burning all day. Trust us, your Mitochondria will thank you.

Each plant-based ingredient is individually selected with purpose and a promise to never use preservatives, additives or artificial flavoring. Let us empower a future of those who care to feel good and do better for the world.

All flavors are 10 net carbs or less no added sugar great source of fiber plant-based, organic, non-GMO and gluten-free ingredients

Fossil Fuel was founded by five members who met through a local cafe and decided they wanted to do more. Most of all, as entrepreneurs, we want to create cool things with cool people! Two of our members, Alexa and Jordon, have emptied their pockets and quit their day jobs to focus on our aggressive e-commerce growth strategy. Right now, they are hand baking, packing and shipping each order from Alaska. Yes! They’re made with a lot of love, but we need your help making all the love sustainable!

With plans to launch production on the west coast by August 2018 and expand to the east coast shortly after, the majority of our supply chain logistics are in place and all we need are the funds to make it happen. The funds we are asking for will go directly towards finalizing packaging and gaining nutritional claim certifications. 

 Our original Chocolate Almond flavor will be our first product to market. Following soon after will be a line of KPV product options. As a backer of our project, you will be able to try our new unreleased donut flavors, our sweet nut butter spread and coconut coffee creamer. Locals will have the opportunity to get out and experience Alaska in entirely new ways through adventure trips including bore-tide surfing, Girdwood vacation stay, trout fishing float and tandem paragliding trips!

 KPV Performance Flavor Profiles 

Le’Matcha: Experience the zest of summer with our green tea matcha infused lemon poppy donut. The perfect solution to curbing those sweet carb cravings. 

 Choco-Nut: Dig in to the decadence of a deep dark chocolate coating topped with finely crushed almonds. Pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of red wine for a guilt-free evening indulgence. 

 NEW! AK Blue Lavender: A limited edition seasonal flavor, made with local Alaskan blueberries hand picked by the Fossil Fuel team with a touch of lavender for that subtle floral flavor.

 NEW! Kaladi Coffee Cake: Taste the rich espresso aroma infused with maple and cinnamon flavors and sprinkled with shredded coconut. Your solution to a morning on-the-run or a mid afternoon pick me up.

 A look into the future…. 

 We have aligned with the Low Carb Diabetes Association, a non-profit diabetes association which stands by similar values and offers resources for managing diabetes through naturopathic healing modems and integrative medicine. The LCDA is, in our opinion, is the most advanced resource available for diabetic patients. Working with the patients to educate and establish a plan for success which lasts. Diabetes is a worldwide, life threatening crisis and it is manageable through lifestyle changes. We need to work together to educate both physicians and patients on how lifestyle choices are directly correlated with illness. Once we go national, a percentage of our profits will be donated to the LCDA while we work together towards developing a lifestyle program which is honest, sustainable and preventative.

LCDA founder Dr. Mona Morstein

“The Low Carb Diabetes Association is a nonprofit organization committed to educating patients, caregivers, medical practitioners, businesses and the world-wide community about using comprehensive integrative medicine to prevent and successfully treat all types of diabetes, enabling patients to live long, healthy lives without diabetic complications. 

 Our focus is on teaching “The Eight Essentials.”

1) Diet.

2) Exercise.

3) Sleep.

4) Stress management.

5) Intestinal health. 

6) Detoxification. 

7) Supplementation. 

8) Medications.

These categories of treatment empower people to overcome the worldwide diabetes crisis and be victors, not victims, of diabetes.” https://lowcarbdiabetes.org/ 

 We have big plans for the future and the team in place to make it happen, all we’re missing is YOU. Join us in reshaping the ‘bar’ and defining a life without the bull-sugar!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge to date has been setting up frozen distribution and finding the co-packer to take on our product. We have been working with a national operations manager to ensure the logistics are in place once we launch nationally. After narrowing down our large list of potential co-packers we have found a few who are able to work with the specifics of our product and are currently in the process of finalizing details. These challenges are not specific to fulfilling the Kickstarter tiers. We will be able to fulfill these orders and ship from our local Alaskan bakery, hand-made by the Fossil Fuel team.
