Frequently Asked Questions
Afar is a snack brand born out of our love for international travel, hunger for bold flavors, and enthusiasm for healthy living. Over the years, we’ve thoroughly explored these passions through our meals, cooking and eating up global cuisines at every opportunity. Now, we’re bringing a taste of the world to snacks - starting with our healthy, delicious protein bars.
Afar protein bars are one-of-a-kind. Like many of you, we’ve eaten lots of bars and grown bored with their generic sugary flavors. We made Afar bars savory (not sweet!) and full of flavor using spices and herbs from global cuisines. The result? Each bar tastes uniquely delicious. For example, our Mexican Chili Lime is spicy, smoky, and zesty, while our Italian Bruschetta is tart, fragrant, and rich. Of course, texture is just as important as taste. Our bars are crunchy and light, like a delightful cross between a Rice Krispies Treat and Nature Valley granola bar. Take a bite and you’ll know what we mean.
Whenever you want! Afar bars are great to eat for any occasion - as a meal replacement, post-workout fuel, on-the-road snack, or afternoon pick-me-up. With 10-11g of protein in each bar, they'll satisfy your hunger and cravings anytime and anywhere.
We make our bars with healthy, simple ingredients. Nuts and seeds, brown rice, and edamame puffs make up 80%+ of our bars – you can see and taste them in every bite. The rest consists mostly of seasonings (most of which are found in spice cabinets around the world) and a small amount of brown rice syrup to bind everything together. And of course, they’re vegan and gluten-free. Full ingredient lists can be found on each product page: Mexican Chili Lime, Indian Masala, Japanese Miso, and Italian Bruschetta.
All Afar bars contain edamame (soybeans) and almonds, and our Japanese Miso bar also contains sesame. Our products are manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts, other tree nuts, eggs, milk, and wheat.
Afar bars can be stored without refrigeration, away from direct heat and sunlight.
Afar bars are best enjoyed within 8 months of the date of production. You can find the best by date behind the back seal of each wrapper.
Through our travels, we’ve been so lucky to learn about cultures around the world, and we wanted to celebrate them not only through our flavors but also our wrappers. Our wrapper illustrations feature memorable places we’ve visited in the countries of our flavors: Chichén Itzá in Yucatán, Mexico (Mexican Chili Lime); Chianti countryside near Siena, Italy (Italian Bruschetta); Gateway of India in Mumbai, India (Indian Masala); and Mount Fuji near Tokyo, Japan (Japanese Miso).
