Protein Puck

Bored of the average health bar and tired of making protein shakes every morning, David & Brande Tawney decided to create something new. After experimenting for countless hours in the kitchen, Protein Puck was conceived! Production quickly moved into a small commercial kitchen which allowed the couple to start selling their new product in local coffee shops throughout the community. It quickly became a hit with coffee shop patrons, fitness fanatics and humans searching for a satisfying, protein-packed, gluten free, vegan bar. Next came distribution into natural food retailers, grocery stores and convenience stores. In the last four years Protein Puck has continued to grow in the Pacific Northwest and is quickly making its way across the United States. Our mission at Protein Puck is to provide healthy products from nature to fuel all your explorations. FOOD IS FUEL, MARCH ON!

Bgood Bars

BGOOD Bars have a long connection to the small mountain town of Joseph, located in NE Oregon. In 1984 I took my first extensive hike in the Eagle Cap Wilderness during a break from Graduate School.  I packed along some homemade energy bars during that first trek to Ice Lake. Now it is 2014 and the Bar is back and it is better than ever!   All those years of experience hiking, skiing, backpacking, mountain living, cooking, raising a family, & working outdoors in nature, the BGood Bar has never left my side.  It has changed and evolved just like I have and finally returned to the mountains of North Eastern Oregon. My story is no different than yours if you believe in yourself and are passionate about what you do.  Success comes in many forms.  For me, success in life is to be happy, be healthy, and…
