FEATURED PALEO TRAVEL SNACKAs part of Getting Primal's Paleo-friendly travel snacks feature, Kimberly of Simple Squares was interviewed in order to obtain an inside look into the creation of Simple Squares's Paleo-friendly food products.
Simple Squares are made with five simple real food ingredients (you will not find any of the usual processed junk such as harmful syrups, fillers, or preservatives found in other nut bars). With flavours such as sage, rosemary, ginger, coffee, coconut, and cinnamon, the taste of these squares is anything but simple. A complex mingling of unique flavours, the squares are also organic, Paleo, non-GMO, and gluten-free. They are perfect for travel, CrossFit, workouts, and the Oscar's. Yes, the Oscar's! Simple Squares was selected to have their snacks available for the celebrities at the Oscar's. They're that good.
What inspired the creators to start Simple Squares?
I was on an elimination diet (no wheat, gluten, dairy, soy or refined sugars) and traveling heavily for my job. It was very difficult to find products on the road that tasted good so I made my own.
What is the hardest part about creating your chocolate bars?
Finding herbal combinations that work with the other ingredients.
Are you working on any new flavours at the moment?
Top secret items in the works!

What would people be surprised to know about the team of Simple Squares?
We were selected as one of a few snack companies to be placed in the green room, dressing rooms and lounges behind the scenes at the Oscars. It was a great event!
Any future plans (sneak peeks, teasers, future goals you do not mind sharing)?
