Buddha Brands, the parent company of the Hungry Buddha brand, announced that not one, but two new keto bars are joining its ranks.

The Montreal-based company unveiled two new flavors — lemon blueberry and mint chip — which join the previously launched triple chocolate, coconut cocoa, espresso brownie and chocolate chip varieties.

Free from animal products, peanuts, soy, dairy and gluten, the keto bars do not contain sugar alcohol, palm oils, dairy or soy, the company said.

“We’re laser focused on creating snacks that not only taste great, but are made with clean, powerful and plant-powered ingredients. We’re thrilled to expand beyond our core flavors with two new iconic combinations: lemon blueberry and mint chip. Although many brands on the market offer peanut flavored options, as a brand focused on eliminating allergens, that wasn’t an option for us. Naturally, we wanted to expand outside of the norm and offer consumers something special, and we are extremely pleased with these two delicious new additions,” said Chris Magnone, CEO and co-founder at Buddha Brands. 

Made with MCT oil, sunflower seed, pea protein and monk fruit, the bars contain 9 to 10 g of protein per serving, 1 to 2 g of sugar and 4 g of net carbs.

“Despite the overall decline in the snack bar category last year, we’re seeing continued success with both consumers and retailers as keto-friendly, plant-based products resonated extremely well. The category has been poised for disruption for years as most bars are loaded with sugar, allergens and subpar ingredients. As consumers seek out better brands and products to support their keto-lifestyle, we expect to be at the forefront of that growth. Hungry Buddha keto bars offer a low-sugar and allergy-friendly snack bar to support healthy and conscious life choices, and our hope is to continue inspiring people to make nutritious decisions that make them feel good,” Magnone said.
