Bronze Winner Acadian Maple

Fill me up with goodness and call me squared—Crowbar Real Foods is about the only company we know that can make energy bars and healthy snacks sexy. Owner and nutritional consultant Brieghan Hunsley believes that “food is fuel and what we put in is what we put out.” From the unexpected (coconut potato fudge and killer kale muffins) to the animalistic (dragon balls and wise owl cookies), Crowbar has nutritious delights for vegans, gluten free-ers and anyone looking to treat themselves sans guilt. “Sometimes I think I’m tricking people into eating well,” says Hunsley. “I’m OK with that.” Crowbar doesn’t have a storefront, but a trip to the Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market on Saturdays will get you more than energized. Alternatively, pop into Halifax hotspots Ireland 32 Cafe, Pete’s Frootique, Planet Organic and others for your fix.
