Like any good story, the tale of Huppy Bar – a delicious soy free, dairy free and gluten free energy bar – begins on a river with the line, “there I was on my boat.”
It was a hot day and river guide Lyndsay Hupp’s snack mix of cashews, dark chocolate and cranberries melted into a hardened clump. She ate it anyway. It was delicious. At home she started putting ingredients into a blender, pulverizing different nuts, chocolates and whatever else she thought sounded good, recreating that first accidental treat.
Soon she was sharing with her energy bars with fellow boatmen and then passengers. People started saying she should wrap them up and sell them. After several years of hearing this, Lyndsay finally made the move to open shop.
