The Spice of Chris' Life

Chris is our Manager of Baking Operations responsible for the fresh baked bars that come out of our bakery. Up until now, he shared his thoughts with our ingredients, but thanks to the blog he will share his thoughts with us every Thursday.

Everyday, I have a peanut butter sandwich for lunch. No jelly, no banana, no honey – peanut butter. As best I can tell, my coworkers’ thinking about me in this regard is generally split between asceticism and insanity. Rest assured, there’s no mad-man in the bakery.
Lunch has always held a functional, almost utilitarian role for me. Just a chance to quash my hunger in between the more interesting breakfast and dinner. Plus, one can only be so creative brown bagging a lunch.
More importantly is the huge variety I have in my breakfast. Every morning, I eat a different Element Bar. This morning, the bar was chewy with blueberries and cherries. The day before, it was crispy and was loaded with walnuts and an omega-3 boost. I try not to look at the ingredients on the back and surprise myself – see how many I can guess.
By my rough calculations, there are over 88 million possible Element Bars. Can you come up with a more accurate number? Drop us a line on the Contact Us page (don’t forget to show your work!) and you could win a dozen custom bars on us!
