Why was YES Bar founded?
- YES Bar was founded in 2012 in a mother’s kitchen in Los Angeles. Our founder, Abigail created these bars out of love for her son Arthur who suffered from various food allergies and food sensitivities.
- YES Bars are made in a state-of-the-art, HAACP certified, bakery facility in Los Angeles.
- Abigail was tired of saying NO to all the things her son was not able to eat. So, she took out all the yummy things in her kitchen he could say YES to and the YES bar was born.
- The recipe is still the exact same recipe that Abigail created in her kitchen all those years ago. We believe you shouldn’t mess with perfection.
- YES Bars are shaped like a cookie because of our unique recipe and process. Abigail created them to be round for her son so that he thought he was eating a cookie. It’s a nutrition bar, shaped like a cookie, it’s a YES Bar.
- NO! We are a small privately owned and employee run company. Nestle owns a snack bar brand in the UK called YES BAR!, and we are not affiliated in any way.
Is your packaging compostable?
- Our 6-pack boxes are 100% compostable and are FSC-Certified and come from responsibly managed forests. Our individual wrappers are made with recycled paper but are not compostable. We are working on a solution with our packaging supplier to become a fully compostable product by 2021, so stay tuned!

- The texture of a YES Bar is what makes it so unique. It’s chewy, crunchy, nutty, sweet & salty, addicting yummy goodness. Each bite is a little bit different and complex; one bite might be nutty, one bite might be salty, one bite might be fruity or chocolaty. Like a good date, you never know what might happen next.
- Whenever hunger strikes, eat a YES Bar. Use it as a clean, healthy indulgence to keep you full and satisfied and curb your appetite in between meals. We love having them for breakfast! Enjoy it with your morning coffee or tea. Crumble it over yogurt. Have it as your 3pm slump buster. Fuel up before a workout or replenish after one. Stash one in your purse or gym bag. Or enjoy it as a healthy dessert.
- The sugar content of our bars ranges from 7-9 grams of sugar. We do not use any refined sugars, fake/synthetic sugars or cane sugars of any kind. Just low-glycemic sweeteners – such as Organic Maple Syrup and Organic Coconut Nectar. Our bars are just ½ the sugar of an apple per bar!
- NO way! We use only 100% real food ingredients, what you see is what you get. We believe mother nature got it right, so we don’t mess with it.
- The shelf life of our bars is 8 months and we bake them fresh every few weeks.
- Nope, our bars are shelf stable and don’t need to be refrigerated. Take them on the go and they will remain super fresh. But you can put them in the fridge for a chewier, cooler, crunchier consistency.
