The Garuka bars company has sent me the following writeup on their bars:
"Each Garuka Bar is handmade in batches of 20 bars. This particular
blend of all-natural ingredients was selected to provide an optimum and
balanced nutritional make-up while providing a unique and delicious bar.
Our bars have one of the highest carb to calorie ratios, so you know
there's no filler ingredients. You'll find just the right amount of
carbs, protein, and fiber to keep you going all day long. And since raw
honey is very low on the glycemic index, you can enjoy all that energy
without a peak or a crash.
Garuka Bars is named after one of the
few remaining mountain gorillas ranging the volcanic forests of the
Virunga Massif in Rwanda. Garuka needs protection and you need
all-natural energy. We’re working on both. Our bars are packed full of
simple, wholesome ingredients, and a percentage of each sale goes
towards gorilla conservation.
Garuka and others like him have suffered
the crossfire of human conflict, poaching, and the stresses of
encroaching human activity. Today, their future looks bleak. As a
company, we’d like to restore their chance at a better future, and what
better inspiration than the meaning of Garuka’s full name, which is
roughly translated from Kinyarwanda as “Return Well”. So, when you
choose to pick up a Garuka Bar to return your energy, you’re also
supporting a cause to return well the future of the mountain gorilla."
I like the Garuka bars more than any other energy bar that I've tried. I highly recommend them.
On a side note, I have received all of the shirts! So all of my products are done and should be shipped out far faster than I had anticipated! Hopefully this campaign takes off, but if not, I will launch the main website http://fplusplus.com very soon and all sales will be processed there.
