Bonga Foods Baobab Chews and Superfruit Powder - and a new Kickstarter campaign!

It's almost hard to believe you can be helping people across the world, simply by snacking on a really delicious and healthy food.... but that is exactly what I'm doing right at this moment!

Here's a new word for you today:  Baobab.

The baobab fruit is a wild-harvested superfruit bursting with antioxidants that also happens to be naturally rich in fiber and Vitamin C, high alkaline, potassium, magnesium, minerals and electrolytes.  It's a word many in the US haven't heard of because it's a tree in sub-Saharan Africa. 

I have another word for you:  Bonga.

Bonga means gratitude in Zulu, one of the dialects spoken by the women in Africa who harvest the Baobab fruit. 

Putting these two words together is the topic of this morning's post;  Bonga Foods Kickstart campaign to add 2 more items to their Superfood chews and superfruit powder lines.  Bonga Foods is a company founded by three women who found away to offer a healthy and delicious snack and powder supplement while at the same time, helping women and families in Africa as well as helping to preserve these amazing trees. 

"...a company sprouted from three Moms focused 
on pure nutrition, we also strive to help other Moms. 
Even those living on another continent. 
Through fair and ethical trade, Bonga-Baobab 
enables local harvesters to support themselves.  
And together, we all protect the mighty Baobab tree."



To help show gratitude, 10% of all profits go to the foundation set up to 
help support the harvesters and their families and to help protect these ancient trees.

The fruit chews are healthy and organic without extra ingredients I can't pronounce!  They come in Mango, Pomegranate, Raspberry and Strawberry.


  • Mango, apple purée, apple juice concentrate, organic baobab fruit pulp, carrot juice concentrate, citrus pectin (E440), natural flavor, rice flour and coconut oil as a coating agent.
  • Pomegranate, plum, apple purée, apple juice concentrate, organic baobab fruit pulp, black carrot juice concentrate, citrus pectin (E440), natural flavor, rice flour and coconut oil as a coating agent.
  • Raspberry, plum, apple purée, apple juice concentrate, organic baobab fruit pulp, black carrot juice concentrate, citrus pectin (E440), natural flavor, rice flour and coconut oil as a coating agent.
  • Strawberry, plum, apple purée, apple juice concentrate, organic baobab fruit pulp, black carrot juice concentrate, citrus pectin (E440), natural flavor, rice flour and coconut oil as a coating agent.



A little fruit chew kids and parents can both enjoy; they are soft and gel like without excess sugar.  Bonga Foods is currently available in Whole Foods and Abes - but they also sell their products on their website for people like me that don't necessarily live close to a retailer and they offer free shipping!

There are some really yummy looking  recipes on their site (including some blueberry pancakes that are going to be made in our household this weekend!)
