Meet Aimee!

Hi there! My Name is Aimee and I recently joined the BumbleBar team as their Office Guru. I’ll be writing lots of the blog posts you’ll be reading in the future, so I’m sure we’ll get to know each other pretty well. I’m excited to be working with a local company that makes a healthy, wonderful products that taste great. My favorite bar is the Classic Cashew BumbleBar. It’s a great bonus that the bars are gluten free, vegan and a great source of natural energy.

The Benefits of Sesame Seeds: Open Sesame!

Here at BumbleBar, we love sesame seeds! That might seem like a no brainer but we really can’t get enough of them. Besides being a great option for a gluten free energy bar, sesame seeds are calcium-rich and help build strong bones. Sesame seeds contain three times as much calcium as an equivalent amount of milk. And studies show that sesamin, a lignan found only in sesame seeds, is a strong antioxidant that fights free radicals and helps with your cholesterol.

Inspired By More Than Honey

Last night, some of us at BumbleBar attended a local showing of the film, More Than Honey. We were blown away by some of the facts presented to us. Here at BumbleBar, we’ve been confusing vegans since 1995. Due to the bees on our packaging, it is a common misconception that BumbleBars contain honey. However, as our goal is to promote organic agricultural practices, the bee icon opens a dialogue about the positive benefits of organic farming. Not only do those cute Bumble Bees pollinate the plants that are responsible for many of our ingredients, especially almonds, but they are also the first animal affected by pesticides and herbicides.

Last night while watching More Than Honey, we learned that depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. It is a phenomenon scientists are calling “colony collapse disorder.”

While we’re very passionate about organic farming, we are by no means experts on the current bee epidemic. Instead, we’d like to provide you with resources to learn with us and continue this conversation.

Authentic Chai Tea Recipe

Here’s a Chai Tea recipe from Northeast India, courtesy of our marketing manager Mary Jantsch. After spending three months in India she learned that chai is the Hindi word for tea so in English we’re really saying ‘tea tea’.

It is absolutely delicious and a perfect winter drink. Let us know if you have a different variation, we’d love to try it!
