HALO™ Wins VegNews Best of Show Award at Expo West

New “Sinfully Healthy Snack” by PROBAR® Wins Prestigious Industry Award

Park City, UT (March 16, 2011)—PROBAR® once again took home top honors with its new HALO Bar product launch at the 2011 Expo West, the world’s largest natural foods and products convention. HALO, a new organic/Vegan dessert-themed snack bar line, was awarded Best New Vegan Product after hundreds of new product submissions were carefully vetted by the industry’s premier vegetarian lifestyle magazine, VegNews.

Debuted for the first time at this year’s Expo West Trade Show (attended by over 50,000 exhibitors, retailers, and members of the press), HALO received resounding applause by the entire VegNews staff for its delicious dessert favors coupled by the bars’ wholesome, certified organic, vegan, low-in-sugar ingredients. Jules Lambert, PROBAR® President, remarked: “It’s truly an honor and privilege to be recognized as Best of Show, when there are so many great new products out there. We really believe HALO will have tremendous appeal as a decadent snack that you can feel good about.”

HALO Bars follow in the tradition of all PROBAR® products as certified organic, a good source of Omega 3 & 6, low-in-sugar and dairy-free/Vegan, but break new ground with four decadent dessert-themed flavors: S’mores, Nutty Marshmallow, Rocky Road, and Honey Graham. By delivering exceptional taste in a healthy, 150-calorie bar, HALO creates a distinctive snack food category that bridges the gap between nutrition/energy bars and candy bars.
