Longmont, Colo. (August 4, 2015) –Two Moms in the Raw, maker of award-winning raw snacks, is rolling out new Almond Protein Crackers, and new Two Moms in the Raw Granola Bars and Nut Bars that are bursting with healthy benefits. With the continued rise of healthy snacking amongst Americans and healthy snacking becoming a lifestyle choice*, Two Moms in the Raw new products are on-trend and answer consumer demand for healthy, convenient snack options.
Two Moms in the Raw new Almond Protein Crackers offer a tasteful, crunchy cracker option that is gluten free, dairy free, 100% organic, raw, sprouted, Paleo, Vegan and mom-made. These new crackers are made with sprouted almonds. Sprouting unlocks nutritional benefits of foods and enables better absorption of nutrients. The savory flavors contain no added sugar and boast six grams of plant-based protein per serving, which is about twice as much protein as the average cracker.
“Our new Almond Protein Crackers are not only delicious, they are the only organic and raw crackers on the market that are free of grains and are not flax crackers.” said Shari Leidich, founder and VP of product development, Two Moms in the Raw. “Our new crackers are a perfect cracker for the Paleo audience and provide a tasty, healthy, satisfying crunch. These are crackers that everyone will love whether or not they have any kind of dietary restriction – just ask my three children; they can’t stop eating them!”
Two Moms in the Raw Almond Protein Crackers are available in four flavors: Zesty Italian Herb, Spicy Chipotle Pepper, Jive’n Chive & Onion and Sweet on you Graham. They are made of simple and pure ingredients including: sprouted almonds, golden flax seeds, hemp seed and a variety of tasty spices. The Zesty Italian Herb and Jive’n Chive & Onion flavors also include Eleuthero, an adaptogen that is known to help relieve stress, strengthen memory and provide sustained energy.
“The savory crackers pair perfectly with the Fig and Olive Tapenade recipe in my new Two Moms in the Raw cookbook, and the Sweet on you Graham can be used as a yummy and healthful base for summer s’mores!” said Leidich.
Two Moms in the Raw Granola Bars and Nut Bars are new and improved, and now made with chia seeds and hemp seeds and sweetened with coconut nectar. Each bar is packed with superfoods like blueberries, almonds, cherries or cacao nibs for an added nutritional boost. Since Americans continue to look for healthy on-the-go snack options, the bars are now available in smaller sizes that are perfect for convenient snacking and in a variety of unique flavors such as: Charming Cherry Chocolate Nut Bar and Cacao Nib Crunch Granola Bar.
“We’ve listened to our consumers and have created an improved product that is packed with even more nutritional benefits and is available in a convenient snack size that can be enjoyed anytime,” said Leidich. “At Two Moms in the Raw, we believe that everyone should have access to healthy, delicious nutrition to help their bodies thrive.

About Two Moms in the Raw

Shari started making raw foods after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She found that a natural path to wellness (including a raw food diet) worked best for her health. She couldn’t find any raw snacks that tasted good, so she made her own. Friends and family loved the snacks and with the help of her mom, Two Moms in the Raw was born. After starting small at local farmers markets, Two Moms in the Raw is now available nationally and growing. For more information, visit www.twomomsintheraw.com.
