Highest Quality Snack Bar is Made in Michigan!!

I’m getting ready for the first camping trip of the year and I am seriously considering using Mitten Munch as my only source of food, just pack in  the 9 different flavors times however many days I’ll be gone.  Ok I’ll probably bring along some other Michigan Made goodies and hit up a local farmers market for for jerky and fruit, but I could survive off these flavorful and filling trail bars.  I’m also thinking of switching out those goopy gels I use when biking to one or two of these in my jersey pocket when I hit the trails.  These also make great snack for children and my friends were delighted when I gave their four year old one of the Peach Festival flavors after they scrupulously inspected the ingredients.  I could blab for days about how most energy/hiking/snack bars are filled with junk that would make cheesecake look healthy but I’ll leave those musings to one of the persons behind the brand, Kristen.

Tell us a little about yourself and the company you own/run

Mitten Munch was created by a brother and sister team, Brad and Kristen. It came to life out of our love for unique food that tastes amazing and makes us feel great.

The name Mitten Munch was chosen for our devotion to our beloved home state of Michigan. We have so many childhood memories of foraging in wild berry patches and old, abandoned fruit tree groves in the woods of northern Michigan. This was our inspiration. The taste was unparalleled with anything else we had encountered and we did our best to honor the plants, ourselves and the customer by keeping our trail bars as close to nature as possible. We wanted to capture the essence of the wild fruit flavors that we grew to know and love. We think we have gotten as close as ever to matching those flavors with Mitten Munch and we are thrilled to be able to bring them to everyone in a convenient way.

We also try to work with as many Michigan owned and operated companies as possible in our production and everyday business activities to honor our friends and neighbors in this great state.

What is your location and when did you start/how long has the company been in business

We started renting a kitchen called Incu-BaKe in Holt, MI where we made our first few batches. After selling out quickly with an ever increasing demand, we realized that we needed our own space ASAP. That was a year and a half ago. We have since expanded and moved into our own facility located in Troy, MI.

What makes your products special/unique

We really pride ourselves on our intense, fruit flavors. We use all real fruits (and lots of them!) to provide the incredible taste of our bars so every flavor tastes exactly as it sounds.

What’s the favorite part about your job

Eating the Munchies!

Where can we buy more of your products

Mitten Munch is sold in stores across Michigan. We have a store locator tab on the website which displays the specific stores–it is updated as we add new locations.

Mitten Munch is also available on our website where you can purchase by the case or a variety pack of all 9 flavors.

Whats the best way to enjoy/eat/prepare/utilize your product

Mitten Munch is a great snack or breakfast on the go. The high fiber content (20% DV) will fill you up and keep you satisfied for hours (drinking a glass of water with them will keep you feeling full and help the fiber to do its job even better). Take them with when you go out hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, golfing, boating, biking, summer road trips or any time you travel.

Or for an indulgent treat, try them ‘a la mode’ (with vanilla ice cream, or vanilla coconut ice cream if you’re vegan)…it’s especially delicious with our Blueberry Cobbler, Peach Festival and Apple Pie flavors!
