Local, family-owned all natural snack foods company Nature’s Bakery has donated 2,000 Fig Bars to The Discovery to give out to children during the event.
The Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars, which come in a variety of flavors including blueberry, peach apricot, apple cinnamon and more, are a healthy and natural alternative to sugar-filled processed candy that children normally receive as a treat during the Halloween tradition of trick or treating.
“We are happy to partner with and support The Discovery in providing an all natural snack for children who attend the museum’s trick or treat event,” said Andrew Strolin, Director of Marketing for Nature’s Bakery. “Our fig bars are made with stone ground whole wheat and sweetened with dried cane syrup, not high fructose corn syrup. They have no transfat, are cholesterol free, dairy free, vegan, Kosher and most importantly taste great.”
The Discovery will open its doors to museum members at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, for the trick or treat event. General admission begins at 6:30 p.m. and the event ends at 9:30 p.m. Admission is $2.
“It is exciting for The Discovery to have Nature’s Bakery provide us with an all natural alternative to only having candy at our event,” said Patrick Turner, marketing and PR manager for The Discovery. “At The Discovery, it is our mission to inspire curiosity, creativity and lifelong learning and we are proud to be able to provide visitors to the museum with the Nature’s Bakery fig bars as we believe in the value of a healthy lifestyle.”
“Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars are a treat I don’t mind my children snacking on,” said Liz Lyles, a mother of two children and a Nature’s Bakery sponsored triathlete. “The Fig Bars are a great, all-natural alternative to processed fruit snacks that have a lot of sugar. The Fig Bars are a great option for me while training, easy to eat while biking or in between workouts, but they’re also good for my kids and they taste great.”

It was less than two years ago that Bella Four Bakery grew from being a manufacturer of other companies' energy bars to producing its own brand. In that short period of time, its Nature's Bakery fig bars have become so popular that some weeks at the Carson City plant workers have to work around the clock to meet demand.
"This product is selling so well, the sky's the limit," says Sam Marson, who owns Bella Four with his father, Dave, a 30-year veteran of the natural foods industry.
In early 2010, the Marsons tired of being at the mercy of other companies and saw a niche for an all-natural, price-competitive, individual fig bar. The Nature's Bakery fig bars — whole wheat or vanilla, which come in fruit flavors such as raspberry, blueberry, and apple cinnamon — are made with stone-ground whole wheat, evaporated cane juice, and brown syrup. There are no trans fats or high-fructose corn syrup.
"They are a clean source of energy," Marson says.
They also taste good, which is not always the case with energy bars.
"We wanted to make something that a 2 year old or a 60 year old could eat, that an athlete or a non-athlete could eat," Marson says. "We wanted an all-around natural snack."
Nature's Bakery products, which also include nut crunches, can be found in major grocery stores across the country, such as WinCo Foods. If you don't see one of the fig bars in your favorite market, just wait.
"Any major chain you can think of, we're going into," Marson says. "Nobody has rejected our product."
Bella Four, which has tripled its number of employees in less than two years, on sometimes makes more than 300,000 bars a day. That's also the company's advantage — despite being small, it doesn't have to pay someone else to produce the product.
"What makes our company so successful right now is that we manufacture our own stuff," Marson says. "We are growing as fast as we can produce it."
