Barnana – Certified B CorpsBarnana

Barnana takes humble bananas—plantains, too—and transforms them into great-tasting treats. Caue Suplicy, a former triathlete living in Brazil, came up with the idea for banana treats as a healthy energy snack when his father turned an old skylight into a solar dehydrator. Committed to upcycling bananas and plantains destined for the trash, Barnana works directly with more than 1,400 Indigenous farmers in Latin America who provide a steady supply of fruit for the company’s plant-based, USDA organic, non-GMO sweet and salty snacks. These partnerships and the company’s focus on sustainability earned it B Corps Certification. A recent addition to the snack lineup is Dipped Organic Barnana Bites, made with premium chocolate.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Cup

Peatos – Now 100% Vegan & Dairy-FreePeatos

Crunchy PeaTos offer the flavor and fun of junk-food snacks like Cheetos and Funyuns but are made with better-for-you ingredients like nutrient-dense peas (instead of corn). All ingredients are all-natural, non-GMO and free of gluten, dairy and artificial colors. Each serving has 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber—more than two times that of their less healthy counterparts. Although born in the U.S., PeaTos founder Nick Desai was inspired to create PeaTos by the salty snacks from his parents’ native India, which are made from a base of peas and lentils, instead of corn or potato as is common in the U.S.

Flavors: Classic Cheese Curls, Fiery Hot Curls, Classic Onion Rings and Crunchy Pizza Rings

Bobo’s – Made By HandBobo's

It started with a mother and daughter (“Bobo”) baking homemade oat bars in their kitchen. Today, Bobo’s Oat Bars and Oat Bites are available nationwide. Still made by hand in small batches in Boulder, Colorado, with 100 percent whole-grain oats and other all-natural ingredients—including nut butter, fruit, organic coconut oil and brown rice syrup—the hearty snacks are non-GMO; kosher; and free of gluten, dairy and soy. Since day one, the company has supported local organizations by donating proceeds from limited-edition bars with specially designed labels. To show their appreciation during the COVID-19 pandemic for healthcare and education workers, Bobo’s created a “Hero” Chocolate Chip Oat Bar. With illustrations of a local nurse and teacher on the labels, all profits were donated to
