Campaign Description

Charge your next adventure with chocolate based fuel. Seven Summits Snacks was inspired by a problem: co-founder Leanna COULD NOT find a chocolate bar that spoke to her as an elite athlete and busy mom. So we created it. This campaign is focused on making our products at scale: sourcing ingredients, packaging and working with a co-manufacturer.

How Things Got Started

Leanna tumbled into an empty niche with the following problem: she was in an outdoors store and could not find a simple chocolate bar that spoke to her as an athlete, busy mom and health and wellness afficionado.

"I wonder if I can eat chocolate instead of bars and gels..."

Kristyn was able to address that problem: she's a food scientist, marathoner, and chocolate is her life.

"Chocolate can be functional, I can make that!"

Christine surveyed the market. The appetite is there, we have the expertise and production is possible in Alberta. Let's bring this idea to life.

Our game plan pre-pandemic was to bring our products directly to the community - races, fondos, Ultramarathons, Ironmans, and even up Mount Everest... COVID trashed that idea, so we moved where the communities did: digital. Hence the BoostR!

Seven Summits Snacks creates chocolate fuel for endurance enthusiasts. Our products are crafted with purposeful nutrition targets to keep up with an active lifestyle. We want to bring our brand to a broader community - in the food industry, that means achieving scale. This campaign will allow Seven Summits Snacks to work with a co-packer so we can sell both online and in boutique stores.

 

Why Seven Summits?

Seven Summits collectively describes the tallest mountain peaks on each of the seven continents. An inspiring challenge to many aspiring adventurers. Our product range pays homage to those mighty mountains with ingredients native to the region.

Current Flavours

The Everest - Our bold Dark Chocolate balanced with Himalayan Rock Salt (and an infusion of Goji Berries).

The Aconcagua - Our blended South American Dark Chocolate combines Inca Berries with crunchy cocoa nibs.

Future Flavours

The Denali - Combining rich Milk Chocolate with the all-American favourite, PB&J

The Kilimanjaro - Tanzanian Dark Chocolate highlighted with dried Banana and subtle Green Cardamom.

The Elbrus - Combining rich Milk Chocolate with dried Russian Berries and crunchy Kasha.

The Vinson Massif - Our bold Dark Chocolate with an invigorating lift of Winter Mint.

The Carstenz Pyramid - Our bold Dark Chocolate blended and with Indonesian Coffee and smooth Vanilla.

Endurance Bar: Crafted to Conquer

CHOCOLATE FUEL?

NO WAY!

In a world of carb gels, we are giving you a choice: A portable stick of chocolate fuel crafted to conquer those long endurance days providing you with over 15g of carbohydrates in a 32 g push-pack to fuel your next adventure. The carb/fat combo make this a lengthy energy release, perfect for a steady grind. Plus, with a hint of caffeine naturally from cocoa, this fuel is good for that little kick along the way.

But won't it melt? Our endurance bar is designed to be bitten off as a solid stick in temperate conditions or pushed as a goo in a melted state. No problems here if you left it in your vest pocket or compression sock. Clever, eh?!

Everyday Bar: Fuel Your Next Adventure

SHAREABLE!

DO I HAVE TO?

Your favourite chocolate format fit for your personal chocolate fix or for sharing with your friends. This solid chocolate bar is robust enough to fit into your busy daily life, allowing you to conquer the daily grind. Break a little off or hoard the lot, we're certain that our peaks will pique your interest. Cocoa-intense and ethically sourced 64% dark chocolate is blended with ingredients paying homage to the mightiest mountain on each continent.

Eat this bar any day, at any time - because you love chocolate!

How your contribution helps

Folks these days like transparency.

Similarly to how we have no secret ingredients in our chocolate fuel, we'd like you to know how your contribution will grow our little business. By choosing one of our chocolate box options, you can help us to continue to fuel your next adventure.
