About this project
Beastie Bars are individually wrapped, protein based dog treats made here in America. Each bar is formulated with either chicken, turkey,or beef, and includes our blend of strategic fruits and veggies to compliment a healthy diet.
We use ALL NATURAL ingredients with NO CHEMICAL PRESERVATIVES. Thanks to a special cooking process and our proprietary cider vinegar preservative, Beastie Bars have a shelf life of 18 months. That means you can throw one in your car, jacket pocket, backpack or purse, forget its there for over a year, and STILL feed it to goodole’ Buster.
Beastie Bars are individually wrapped for 3 main reasons:
CONVENIENCE - Who wants to throw an unwrapped meat treat in their pocket book or backpack? Who wants to lug a whole bag of treats on the evening walk? Better yet, who wants to fish for a treat in your pocket and find a handful of crumbs?
No one? Us either…. The goal was to create an on-the-go treatthat’s neat, clean, and easy to carry and it could not be done without individual packaging.
ACCESSIBILITY - The Beastie Bar was made to be shared, consumed and loved by dogs and pet parents everywhere. To make this happen, we knew we had to put a product on the shelves anyone could buy. There was no way we could sell a $3-4 treat like the ones on the market now (which aren’t even meat based!)
We are happy to say that we developed our perfectly sized 1 oz. Beastie Bars with consumer pricing in mind. Our bars will retail in the $1-$2 range allowing many more consumers to happily feed Beastie Bars to their furry beasts.
FRESHNESS - One bar per package means no opening and resealing. This allows our perfectly chewy bars to stay fresh for 18 months!
How big is a Beastie Bar? We crafted our bars to weigh in at 1 oz. which is a great size to either feed the whole bar or break up into a few treat moments. The bars measure 4”x 1.25” x .5”.
How many come in each package? 1 perfectly proportioned chewy bar per package.
How much will they cost? About a buck and a half.
Where are they made? We make our treats right here in the good ole' U-S of A. And… being mindful of supporting the environment and the local communities, we source all of our ingredients as locally as possible.
How long do they stay fresh? Because our bars are dehydrated and employ a host of natural preservatives, we’re able to attain a shelf life of 18 months.
Can I feed my dog these instead of meals? They’re nutritious. We’d even go as far as to describe our Beastie Bars as super nutritious. BUT… like all snacks, our bars should NEVER take the place of a meal.
Risks and challenges
We have produced a similar meat based, fruit and veggies treat in the past, on mass scale. This allows us to comfortably embark on this Kickstarter adventure, because we know we can handle the volume.
What is new and different for us, is packaging them individually. While we are using a tried and true packaging method, it is the first time both us and our factory will be using the packaging machinery. We are confident, however, that it should not be a worry. When it comes to packaging food products, flow wrapping is one of the easiest (knock on wood)!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
