There's a new Snact bar range on the way, following a crowdfunding campaign to bring bananas into the mix.
Snact has been making healthy vegan snacks from wasted fruit for three years – its first product was apple jerky – and is on a new mission to save surplus bananas. We throw out 1.4 million edible bananas every day in the UK, which is crazy, especially when they can be turned into wholesome, energy-packed snack bars.
Its Crowdfunder campaign ends tomorrow but has already exceeded its original £10,000 target, which will see Apple & Cinnamon Kick, Beetroot & Cacao Blast and Carrot & Spice Boost banana bars come to market.
Snact's #deliciousprotest – which includes the recruitment of Banana Guerrillas, or supporters – continues with a stretch target of £15,000, which will pay for the development of a fourth flavour in the banana range. Snact has suggested Veg Bomb: Spinach & Parsnip but is 'open to suggestions'.
Pledge rewards include loads of Snact bars, 'More Taste Less Waste' T-shirts in recycled organic cotton, invitations to the Big Banana Bonanza Party in London in October and mini protest placards for your own Snactavist demonstrations.
Snact bars contain things like fruit, vegetables, oats, coconut, nuts, seeds, quinoa and cacao, but no animal products, gluten, added sugar, additives, preservatives or dates (Snact makes a point about the dates). They're wrapped up in genuinely home-compostable packaging too.
