After years of struggling with food allergies, Sally’s journey to health is nothing short of inspiring. Working in the foreign food commodities sector, she tried a coworker’s gluten-free, dairy-free bar, and it changed everything. “The world started to open up” says Sally, about the transformation into a new lifestyle.
Sally developed Maple Walnut, the first of the three flavors, in 2009 while studying at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City. After studying in NYC she returned to the tri-state area working at bakeries and experimenting with her own original ideas.
Sally recalls some of the first Munch Bars she sold, “people reacted well to it,” and would return to the bakery asking about what they’d just eaten. It’s been an adventure in gluten free baking and entrepreneurship ever since!
