Rule Breaker Snacks

rule breakerNancy Kalish hopes the Sharks bite on Rule Breaker Snacks, her chick pea based brownies and blondies, in Shark Tank episode 1208. She started the company in November of 2014 after a career as a journalist and “Healthy Restaurant Consultant.” She wanted a snack that would satisfy her sweet tooth without compromising nutrition. The first experiment she tried was with black beans. The brownies didn’t turn out well, so she persevered.

After many attempts and switching to a chick pea based brownie, her recipe was perfected. There are no eggs, milk or peanuts in any of her snacks. They’re gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and kosher. They come in cookies or “bites” and there are four flavors: Deep Chocolate Brownies, Chocolate Chunk Blondies, Birthday Cake and P’Nutter Chocolate Chip. An 8 pack costs $28 on Amazon, but you can find them in Walmart and Whole Foods too.

The bites are a relatively new addition to the line up. They were launched via a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $28,402 back in April, 2019. Nancy wants to bring her snacks to a wider consumer audience, which is a challenge because she’s pretty much a one-woman show. Perhaps a Shark will help build her chick-pea cookie empire.
