YExplore has a new partner! Nature’s Bakery, a company that makes an energy snack called Fig Bars, has agreed to provide these tasty treats to our clients for our Yosemite Tours. I am now officially an ambassador for Nature’s Bakery and you can follow my blog for them here. I have been bringing the Fig Bars on my trips for the past few months, and I really do enjoy them. Many of our clients agree and have stated that they are hearty and not nearly as sweet as other brands. They are all natural, and there are several different flavors. My favorite is Vanilla Raspberry. My children also love them which is an important reason I decided to enter into this agreement. It’s very difficult to find suitable snacks for kids in a market flooded with high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients.
Last week I took some Fig Bars up to the summit of Half Dome, and they provided us with some good energy for the long day. In retrospect, maybe I should have offered a bar to the tired hiker behind me in this photo.
