Escondido, CA – 1/16/07 – Family owned Gertrude & Bronner's Magic Alpsnack(TM) begins its fifth year of operation in 2007. Gertrude Spindler grew up in Switzerland where her mother made tasty nourishing nut and fruit bars similar to Alpsnack(TM) in the small mountain village of Cham over fifty years ago. Using only organic, vegan and gluten- free ingredients, Gertrude re-created her mother's delicious wholesome snacks that include hemp nut, an ancient food source that supplies high amounts of the two essential fatty acids (EFAs) omega-3 and omega-6 in perfect balance and all the essential amino acids with a high protein efficiency ratio.
"#42 Healthy Snack Bars That Pass the Taste Test – Neither aggressively crunchy nor sticky, hemp nut-based Alpsnack bars are pleasantly crumbly, lightly sweet and surprisingly fresh. Try the apricot-cranberry." — Food & Wine Magazine, Jan. 2007
Alpsnacks come in five flavors, and are organic, vegan and gluten-free. Excelling in taste and nutrition, Alpsnack(TM) continues to donate all profits to industrial hemp advocacy* in the United States.
"Alpsnack is an amazing project blending super food with advocacy on multiple levels," says David Bronner, President of Alpsnack™. "But bottom line, Alpsnack is a very tasty snack, and it's great to see Gertrude's culinary abilities recognized in such prominent incredible way."
*The Bronner family is supporting Vote Hemp — http://www.VoteHemp.org — and the Hemp Industries Association's (HIA) — http://www.theHIA.org — legal, media, grassroots and lobbying efforts to recommercialize industrial hemp farming in North America.
