Two Costa Rican siblings were separated by distance for 25 years, but that didn't stop them from embarking on yearly adventure hikes together. From exploring the lush rainforests of Costa Rica to conquering the majestic peaks of California's Sierra Nevada mountains, they shared a love for nature and exploration.

During one of their hiking trips, as they enjoyed some snacks to keep up their energy, an idea crossed their minds - what if they could make a wholesome energy bar inspired by their home country? They aimed to blend the distinctive flavors of Costa Rica into a delicious and highly nutritious snack to support hikers on extended journeys.

And thus, the idea of using pejibaye (pay-hee-by-yay) as a central ingredient in their energy bars was born. Pejibaye, also recognized as a highly nutritious superfruit, has been cultivated and enjoyed for centuries in the vibrant regions of Central and South America.

This delicious, nutty-flavored, nutrient-rich fruit has gained a well-deserved reputation as a powerhouse of health benefits, making it a popular choice among food enthusiasts and health-conscious individuals alike. Besides its rich history and wealth of nutrients that include high levels of dietary fiber, antioxidants, minerals, essential amino acids, vitamins A, B1, B2 , and low levels of sodium and sugars.

And to add an extra boost of flavor and health benefits, they blended in other healthy tropical fruits and natural ingredients as well. The result: PEJI BAR, a tasty, all-natural nutrient-rich bar packed with fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Their goal is not only to create a healthy energy treat but also to promote sustainable farming practices by sourcing ingredients locally from small-scale farmers in Costa Rica. With this venture, they hope to share a piece of their homeland with adventurers around the world while supporting local communities.

The next time you embark on your own hiking expedition or simply need an energizing snack on-the-go, keep an eye out for these innovative energy bars made with love and inspired by nature's bounty!
