I first learned about this clever company You Bars on Cooking Channel’s, Foodcrafters program. The foodcrafters at You Bar let us create our own health bars, cookies, trail mix and more by selecting from their nearly endless list of healthy ingredients. The coolest part is they customize the packaging label. My son received this trail mix I concocted (raisins, sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, granola, and chocolate candy) at his summer camp. He’s going to Secret Agent camp which, from the looks of the camp’s photos, appears more like he is in Taliban training. They’re labeled “Griffin’s Spy Fuel.” Let’s just hope when he’s questioned by the Feds, they don’t take away his snacks.
My daughter is at an art school named Innerspark, so she received, “Kendall’s Innersparks” cookies. She said, and this I quote from a sometimes snarky 16 yearold, “they are really delicious.” She sent this photo:
These are not the cheapest treats, but they are healthy, fast and uniquely personalized. Check ’em out!

    I ordered these are they are great. A box of bars for me and a box for my girls. They also like them and don’t realize I snuck in flax seeds and all sorts of heathy goodies. I also ordered customized trail mix, which were handy and healthy on long hikes we took this summer. Thanks for the tip.
