Meant to be consumed as nature intended, every bar provides functional nutrition and satisfies hunger. Every Paleo-friendly bar contains only eight ingredients or less and 15 grams of muscle-building protein, derived naturally from egg whites and raw almonds. Plus, they’re high in energy and free of grains, added sugars, gluten, soy, dairy or any artificial or processed ingredients.

Current Product Lineup
What happens after you achieve the goal you’ve spent years chasing? In 2017 Peter Rahal sold his protein bar brand RXBAR. In 2019 he stepped down as CEO to be an advisor to the company and focus on his own projects. Now he’s busy investing in brands under his firm Litani and figuring out what his next play should be.
2019 saw brands take a step beyond better-for-you, seeking to infuse healthy products with additional (functional) benefits. The year also featured acquisitions, investments and product launches as brands both large and small try to better align themselves with an increasingly engaged consumer base.
At the 2019 NACS show in Atlanta, Larry Levin, EVP of market and shopper intelligence at research firm IRI, outlined convenience store trends from the past year and how better-for-you brands can further fuel consumers’ on-the-go snacking needs.
It may only be August, but the latest offering from RXBAR will have you dreaming of fall. RXBAR has announced the launch of new RX Nut Butter Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter, a good-for-you seasonal snack that pairs perfectly with plaid shirts, changing leaves and hot apple cider.
Sprouts, Beyond Meat and more brands report Q2 earnings in this week’s Checkout.

Chicago Bar Company, makers of RXBAR, announced today it will rebrand as Insurgent Brands, expand its product mix under the RX brand and launch a new “contrarian” sub brand. All of which will move forward under new leadership. Co-founder Peter Rahal told NOSH that the new product follows the RX strategy. “I’ve always taken a contrarian point of view to everyone else. RX was very contrarian. It didn’t fit with anyone else.”
2018 was filled protein, plant-based innovation and, perhaps not surprisingly, lots of deals. But perhaps what readers paid most attention to was how those deals are paying off — namely RXBAR, which was acquired in 2017 for $600 million. Want a quick reminder of the whirlwind that was 2018?
