The Bearded Brothers Story!
Bearded Brothers is Chris and Caleb! The idea was conceived in 2011. Here's their story:
"IT ALL STARTED IN 2011 IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS.
The mountains were calling and we needed a 100% organic energy bar with pure raw ingredients that would keep up with our lifestyle. Our standards were high, and nothing on the market measured up. Ever since we bit into that first homemade bar, they’ve fueled our own adventures: rock climbing, running, and traveling the US for work."

Here are some of the amazing ingredients in Bearded Brothers Bars:
Dates and figs are the main source of sweetness in these bars, and a natural preservative and source of awesome chewiness. Dates are vitamin and mineral-rich — they’re particularly high in iron and vitamin K. Figs provide the background rich flavor component for this bar, as well as some crunch from its seeds and natural fiber to boot.
Sunflower seeds are one of those superfoods that was super-popular in the 1970s, and used in countless bad recipes involving tofu, beansprouts, and shredded carrots. It reached its culinary nadir in the “vegan nut loaf” — overdense and underseasoned. But there’s a reason why sunflower seeds were so popular — they’ve got an amazing nutritional profile. Sunflower seeds are high in protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Here are some of the superpowers of sunflower seeds. They may help to:
- Lower LDL, "bad cholesterol" and increase HDL, "good-cholesterol"
- Reduce blood sugar levels
- Maintain the integrity of the cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin.
- Create significant anti-inflammatory effects that result in the reduction of symptoms in asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis
- Enhance GABA activity inside the brain, which in turn helps reduce anxiety and neurosis
