BumbleBars on Vashon Island

Back in 1995, Liz made the very first BumbleBar and pretty soon afterward, she and Glenn set up shop on Vashon Island near Seattle, producing and distributing bars.

Ingredient Highlight: Sea Salt

Salt has a pretty bad reputation. The American Heart Association has warned people against too much consumption because it is known to raise the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other fatal illnesses.

This is the kind of salt that the American Heart Association warns us about, but it is not the kind of salt that we use here at BumbleBar.
