Zac Bar products are natural in their entirety. We bake them with care at our family bakery in the Pacific Northwest with the goal of providing all of the convenience and good taste of an on-the-go snack, while skipping the high-fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients.
Zac Bars were created as the solution to a problem for owner Tom Fitzgerald. Tom had been providing fresh baked cookies to local public schools for almost ten years when rules regarding school meals began to rapidly change.
National attention began to turn to subjects such as childhood obesity, school nutrition, and revising outdated and neglected federal food regulations. Tom sensed big change coming. He knew it would not be long before his home-style cookies were forbidden for use in school meals.
It was clear to Tom that he needed a snack bar product. He used fresh ingredients already at his disposal, a vision for what he thought would taste good. Tom spent his weekends and late nights experimenting with different baking formulas.
Finally, the Zac Omega bar was created. Tom took the a chewy outer biscuit made of rolled oats, whole grain wheat flour and flax seed flour and filled it with all natural fruit jam.
Tom’s excitement and continual improvements to his products was contagious. Moms were elated to have a natural and wholesome snack that their children would enjoy eating. Schools, seeing the response from students, were enthusiastic about making such an easy snack option available.
Zac Bars Inc. continues at the pace that Tom has set. We continually work to evaluate and improve on the products we offer. We will always stick to what we know best – snacks that are all natural, tasty and honest.

We got to try out a whole bunch of the great flavors that Zac Bars come in.. First up is the Zac Attack Bars

Natural apple spice flavoring adds sweet nutmeg and cinnamon notes to the tartness of the apple filling. Soft molasses keeps the flax seed flour and whole-wheat flour biscuit soft.
