It’s a few weeks into 2022 and that new year’s resolution is becoming a challenge. We’ve all been there. Getting to the gym, eating right – it’s difficult when constantly rushing from one place to the next. But what if there was a convenient solution to staying healthy on the go? ONE Brands’ protein bars are the tasty secret to helping your customers uphold their resolution — for good.
Founded in 1999, ONE Brands was formerly known as Oh Yeah! Nutrition. Despite the name change, ONE Brands has been in the sports nutrition game for over two decades. During that time, they have ignored the ever-changing and always chalky diet-protein-energy bar fads and instead sought to create an indulgent, healthy snack that would stand the test of time.
Their dessert inspired ONE Bars are packed with 20 grams of protein, contain only one gram of sugar and tout a short list of wholesome ingredients that are easy to read and sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. With just 22-25 grams of carbohydrates, ONE Bars are a safe, decadent snack for those that may wish to eat ‘low carb,’ and for those that require certified gluten free foods.
“As the market moves towards ‘better for you items’ like high protein, low carb and gluten free, options such as ONE Brands sell really well since they check all of those boxes,” said Erin Mercolino-Nigro, the Senior Director of Chain Sales and Innovation. “Convenience stores have the unique opportunity to make in-demand, healthy eating more accessible to the average consumer, which can really help make a difference, for them and for retailers.”
Though they truly cater to all tastes and nutritional parameters, we’re recommending our top five favorites to improve your c-store’s sales and to assist your customers in finally accomplishing their new years’ resolution.
Hints of a tropical getaway combine with a hearty snack to create the great-tasting and nutritious Almond Bliss ONE Bar. With flavors of coconut and almond, there is no nut bar out there quite like this ONE (see what we did there?).
For only 240 calories, the Almond Bliss ONE Bar is bursting with all the nutritional benefits mentioned before, with the added bonus of achieving 11 percent of your daily value of fiber—keeping the digestive system happy and healthy. Based on its many five-star reviews, the Almond Bliss ONE Bar is a go-to favorite for ONE Brands’ regular consumers.
This bar will truly give consumers something to celebrate. If confetti could be a flavor, ONE Brands has found a way to master it. As their number one seller, the Birthday Cake ONE Bar, is filled with all the vanilla sugar consumers love — minus the crash and extra pounds.
The 220-calorie bar makes up for 11 percent of your daily value of fiber and boasts ONE’s flagship nutritional benefits of high protein and low carbohydrate content. Count on Birthday Cake for a party in every bite and a sweetness that never gets old.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
An eternal classic. Chocolate chip cookie dough is everyone’s guilty pleasure. But imagine having all the flavors of eating the homemade dough off the wooden spoon, just without the guilt — and that inevitable stomachache? ONE Brands delivers with their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ONE Bar.
For just 230 calories, 40 percent of your daily value of protein, three grams of fiber, and just one gram of sugar, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough provides a nutritional punch to your customers’ snacking routine that is worth savoring every ‘spoonful.’
Peanut Butter Cup
Nothing like your customers have ever had before, ONE Brands’ Peanut Butter Cup ONE Bar is all the chocolate-peanut-buttery goodness without the sugar.
For 230 calories, consumers receive 29 percent of their daily value of fiber in addition to their essential protein. Chocolate and peanut butter is undoubtedly a timeless combination, and we love that this product preserves that tradition. If your customers can eat peanut butter right out of the jar, this bar is for them.
Last — but certainly not least — S’mores
Ready transport your customers to the familiar comfort of the summer campfire? ONE Brands’ countless mouth-watering offerings never fail to send consumers into magical moments and the S’mores ONE Bar is no exception. Originally a limited-edition item, ONE Brands had to bring back S’mores due to the overwhelming positive feedback.
As their multiple five-star best seller and consumer favorite, S’mores is only 210 calories, 29 percent of your daily value of fiber, and maintains all of ONE Bars’ powerhouse nutrition. We guarantee that your customers will be left wanting S’more.
Why ONE Bar?
“Healthy foods are what’s trending right now, so ONE Bars are a great example of what stores should be carrying,” said Greg Muhlig, Director of Merchandising at National Convenience Distributors. “We always push them towards the front and at eye level to help our customers generate more sales.”
Because they are perfect for a meal replacement, post-gym recovery, a workday pick me up, or a grab n’ go snack any time of the day, c-stores can benefit from making nourishing choices more easily attainable for consumers. ONE Brands’ ONE Bars are sure to fuel your customers’ day, without sacrificing the flavors they love.
