Josh sits down with Fourpoints Bars co-founder Kevin Webber. Fourpoints Bars is, you guessed it, a brand delivering delicious, nutritious, and game-changing energy bars to the market. While most bars use dates or syrups as a base for their bars, Fourpoints uses plums and is the ONLY bar that currently using dried plums as a base. But why plums? Webber and his brother come from two generations of diabetics and, as avid outdoor enthusiasts were hell-bent on not letting that affect their outdoor endeavors. They wanted to create a slow-burning energy bar without compromising blood sugar. That’s where plums come in. This unassuming, super, powerhouse ingredient not only contains more antioxidants than blueberries but, has a substantially lower glycemic index than dates, a common ingredient in energy bars. With no added preservatives to boot it’s clear that Fourpoints Bars are becoming a pioneer of health in the energy bar biz and we’re psyched to see what comes next.
