Blue Dinosaur Snack Bars, and all of our bars, are a testament to what snack food can be if care, love and quality are at every step of its creation.

Hand made in a gluten free bakery, they’re plant based, grain free, and are made from just five ingredients in each. Our Snack Bars are gluten free, soy free, dairy free, and contain no artificial sweeteners or additives.

You can have one with your breakfast (try adding to your smoothie), before or after a workout, as a 3pm pick me up, as a dessert, or any time you are simply looking to make a healthier snacking choice.

Blue Dinosaur Protein Bars contain 22g – 24g of protein per bar (depending which flavour you choose), and we believe that they’re the cleanest protein bars ever made. Each bar contains only six or seven ingredients and they are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and contain no artificial sweeteners or additives.

Each bar contains dehydrated free-range egg white which naturally contains the complete amino acid profile which is wonderful for muscle growth. They also contain beef collagen which is a great protein source. Having both of these ingredients allows your body not only to grow the muscles, but also to support the growth and well-being of your joints and connective tissues.

These bars are made with real, wholefood ingredients. Most other protein bars contain sugar alcohols, chemicals, and ingredients that will upset your stomach. Ours contain only real, wholefood ingredients and NOTHING chemical or artificial. 

(We’re pretty sure they’re the only protein bar on the market that won’t make you need to hit the loo 20 minutes after consumption).

Blue Dinosaur Bites are decadent,hand-baked, wholefood treats. Each Bite has been designed to take you to your happy place in the healthiest way possible.

They’re plant based and grain free and are made from between 4 - 6 ingredients each (depending which flavour you choose). Our Bites are gluten free, soy free, dairy free, and contain no artificial sweeteners or additives. Perfect for a guilt-free dessert.

Blue Dinosaur Energy Bars are a natural approach to long lasting energy. With a focus on good calories for fuel and cordyceps mushroom for increased oxygenation of our blood*, our energy bars are an alternative to the stimulants, caffeine and concentrated sugars more commonly found in energy products.

*Cordyceps Militaris mushroom is a vegan Cordyceps grown on organic fermented rice grains which is anecdotally believed to increase the body's production of Andenosine Triphosphate. This may improve the way your body uses oxygen, especially during exercise.

Please note the use of the word 'may'! While many people, including us, believe these effects of cordyceps to be true, science does not yet back us on this theory and this advice must be taken as opinion and not fact. We are not doctors, doctors are much smarter than us, please ask your doctor's advice if you have any questions relating to Cordyceps Miltaris mushroom and its affect on your body.

Our Snack Bars, Protein Bars, Energy Bars, and Bites all have a two-year shelf life from the date of manufacture when stored in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight.

We achieve this by keeping the available water in our products very low as well as baking them just enough to neutralise any potential for mould or bacteria.

Our Snack Bars, Protein Bars, Energy Bars, and Bites are packed in an Oxygen-proof, foil-lined wrapper, and are flushed with Nitrogen to remove all Oxygen from the packet. This process eliminates the possibility for bad bacteria to form.

In warmer climates we recommend refrigerating our Bars and Bites as the coconut oil, MCT oil, and/or cacao butter can melt out of them in hot weather making the bars oily and crumbly.

All of our products are manufactured in Australia by Australian owned and operated gluten free, HACCP certified bakeries.

All of our products are made in HACCP certified gluten-free bakeries. We test our products annually for gluten, soy,and dairy, and are proud that our products are free from these allergens.

We only source preservative-free ingredients; there is no sulphur or any other preservatives in the ingredients we use to make our products.

Some of our products contain egg and/or nuts, and all of our products may contain traces of egg, tree nuts and peanuts.

All of our ingredients are completely natural, and many of them are organic. We have never, and will never, add colours, flavours (even those sneaky ‘natural’ flavours), or artificial sweeteners to our products.

We take all care in manufacturing our products; every ingredient we use is metal-detected, x-rayed, and checked by eye for any foreign matter, including date pits and nut shell pieces. However, as per the warning on our packets, there is a chance that date pits, date pit fragments, or nut shell pieces may remain. We are constantly working to improve our products and source the highest quality ingredients available. Due to the nature of producing completely natural products made from only real food ingredients, it is nearly impossible to completely avoid date pits and shell pieces occasionally making their way into our products. Please contact us if you have any concerns regarding this.

Many of the ingredients we use are Halal, however it also depends on where we can source our ingredients from at different times through the year, so this can change depending on what’s available. If you have specific requirements regarding Halal please contact us.

All of our products are made using Kosher-certified ingredients, and our Snack Bars and Bites have been Certified as Kosher by Kosher Australia.

ORDERING

You can buy our Bars and Bites from our online store; or you can check out your nearest stockist (we recommend calling first to check stock availability).

Generally, if your order is placed by 11am on any weekday it will be dispatched that day, however if it is placed after 11am it may not be dispatched until the following business day. During particularly busy periods (around Christmas, for example), dispatch may be delayed.

We use Australia Post eParcel for most orders. This is a 2-5 day service nationwide, however at certain times of the year delivery can take longer than this due to high volumes of deliveries. We recommend allowing up to 10 business days for deliveries. For larger orders we sometimes use other couriers such as Direct Freight Express or Star Track, and their delivery times can vary from overnight (Sydney metro) to 10 business days (interstate).

We are unable to ever guarantee deliveries within a certain time frame as we are relying on third party couriers. Please see our Terms and Conditions for full details.

We sent you an email after we dispatched your order and you should find a link to track your order from there. Please check your junk folder, and if you still need some help contact us with your order number and we’ll track it down for you.

If you're based in Australia, simply head to our wholesale section and apply for an account. Once we approve your account (usually within 1 business day), you'll be able to log in and place orders at our wholesale prices on our website. We also have a bunch of distributors selling our products nationwide, so don't hesitate to contact us and we can put your in touch with your local distributor. 

Please note that wholesale accounts are solely for Australian businesses wishing to sell or provide our products to their customers, members, or employees. If you are a business outside of Australia please contact us and we’ll be able to connect you with your local distributor.

WHAT ELSE?

The biggest difference we’re trying to make here at Blue Dinosaur is to show the world that snack food can be made with the same love, care and attention as restaurant quality food.

We believe in making a difference, whether that's in the health food aisle at your local store, or to Australians in a bind.

Foodbankis Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities who are feeding vulnerable Australians. Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food rescued for food relief organisations nation-wide and we’re proud to make several generous donations to Foodbank each year.

As of May 2020 we are using new boxes for our products which are made using roughly 70% less material than our previous boxes, and are made using mostly recycled board fibres. Our Protein Bar and Snack Bar boxes are made using 80% recycled fibre, and our Bites boxes are made using 90% recycled fibre. All are printed with soy-based ink, and are 100% recyclable.

We also have messaging on all of our wrappers that they can be recycled via soft plastic recycling programs (generally your local supermarket will have a bin where you can take your soft plastics to be recycled and made into furniture, bollards and signage). For more info on soft plastic recycling please check out Redcycle.

Due to the nature of our products, we are not in a position to switch over to compostable packaging (it can’t protect our bars against oxygen and UV like plastic can), however we’ve always got our ears to the ground and as soon as the opportunity comes up to make the switch we’ll do it!

Contact us either over the phone, email, online contact form, or snail mail, and we'll answer you!
