Kate’s Real Food Bars

What do you do when you are trying to maximize your ski time?  Typically you for-go lunch or grab one of MANY energy bars sold at any store.  I know I have had many lunch-less powder powder days and have had mixed results with the usual energy bar brands.

I wanted something different, something that didn’t have ingredients like:

  • Chromiun Clhloride
  • Ergocalciferol
  • Pyridoxine
  • Phytonadione
  • and others that don’t sound edible (and probably aren’t)

I was in luck, someone else had already had that idea.  That someone is Kate Schade from Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  As a skier, Kate didn’t always have time to cook a meal to eat all while juggling multiple jobs and a habit of skiing tram laps all day.  And that is how Kate’s Real Food Bars was created.

Yummy ingredients!

Kate wanted something that would substitute a meal, or two, or all day.  To do that she needed quality organic ingredients.  Things like:

  • Organic Rolled Oats
  • Organic Peanut Butter
  • Milk Choclate
  • Organic Rasins
  • And many more things that look and sound edible!

Currently there are 5 extremely delicious flavors to choose from: The Tram Bar, The Stash Bar, The Grizzley Bar, The Tiki Bar, and the Handle Bar.  I can personally attest the the flavor of all 5.  The first time I ate one the words out of my mouth were something like,

“That is F%$&ing good!”

Not only are these bars amazing, they dont freeze to a tooth breaking rock like other bars do.

    Expensive as fuck though, if I was going to spend that kind of money on food while skiing I would just go get some hot lodge food

    • spandeau ballet says:

      yeah, hard to justify ~$3 each when i can get 4 cliff bars for that price at Target

      • Unofficals father says:

        You can’t buy 4 cliff bars for 3 bucks. You can buy like a whole box for 12 dollars.

          Keep in mind these are still handmade at the factory in the Tetons. It’s a lot easier to sell mass produced machine made bars cheap. Just saying.

    yeah they sound pretty good – send a few over here to Europe!

    Avoid any processed food containing chemicals whose names you can’t pronounce.

    Found a Stash Bar in the snow on my way to work this morning. Just ate it. It was awesome. Another sunny day in Jackson….but where’s the snow?

    Shame about the exorbitant shipping prices too. I bought a gift box to give them a try but I won’t be buying them regularly with slow shipping being $10! Feels like the old ebay days of something being cheaper but having $50 shipping.

    • Funbecoming says:

      Dude! These bars are even worth the shipping for me! I can be pretty cheap, but who wants a crappy bar on an awesome ski? I want Kate’s. Maybe not as good calories per penny as the Cliff Bar on sale, but supporting a small cool company. Taste fucking awesome and fill me up.
