Lunds and Byerly’s is a Minnesota business with deep roots in our great state. As such, we’re always proud to support our fellow local businesses.
In 2011, we met two brothers – identical twins – who were just starting their very own small business. They were sharing their product, a fresh nutrition bar, at a local food show put on by the community kitchen Kindred Kitchen.
Full of enthusiasm and energy, they presented GüdBar, a refrigerated, fresh nutrition bar unlike anything we had seen. It was uniquely soft, moist and tasty with real fresh fruit inside. As two snack-loving guys, they originally made the bar because they were fed up with other dry bars that seemed like they were made to be stored, not eaten. Thus, they made something fresh! We knew we had to give them a shot.

Sunday is the biggest snacking day of the year and some reports estimate more than 1.24 billion wings will be eaten and 4.4 million pizzas will be ordered for the big game! It really is the championship of eating events!
I look forward to the big game every year, and I’ll admit it’s usually not because of the game, but the fun atmosphere of an eating event that goes on for hours. Most of us will indulge to some degree, so keep in mind this particular day eating is more of a marathon than a race!
