What makes you the "best protein bar"?

We start with grass-fed whey isolate:

non GMO, Casein FREE, Lactose FREE, Hormone FREE
Cold processed to maintain protein integrity
No soy or other additives
We use only Premium ingredients because we believe our customer’s bodies deserve the best.

And, all our our ingredients are Ethically Traded because the farmers, workers and cows creating our ingredients deserve respect, too.

The complete ingredients list is included on each product description page.

Are MariGold Bars Gluten Free?

Absolutely! Our bars are completely GLUTEN and GRAIN free.

Are MariGold Bars “Dairy Free”?

NO, our bars are not dairy free. As stated in our list of ingredients, our bars contain “Milk Whey isolate” using milk from grass-fed cows. While our bars are CASEIN and LACTOSE free, they do contain milk whey isolate. If you have food allergies, please consult your health care provider before eating our bars.

What's your lowest (highest) carb, sugar, fat bar?

We have many flavors of bars!  To get the low-down on all our bars, see all the Nutritional Labels Page where we’ve put all that info together in one easy spot.

Why do MariGold Bars need refrigeration? Can I take them on trips?

MariGold bars are made low sugar and don’t contain preservatives. They are real food.  Just like any real food, they will mold.

Their room temperature shelf life is 12 days. So, unless you plan to eat all your bars up in 12 days, stick them in the ‘fridge. That way, they’ll stay fresh for several months. They can also be frozen and kept for up to a year.

Our bars do love to travel (they’ve actually been on trips all around the world!). When traveling, keep in mind you should eat them within a week, or put them in a ‘fridge wherever you’re going.

How do you ship?

Since our bars are made fresh, we want to get them to you ask quickly as possible….and keep shipping costs fairly reasonable! So, we ship them via USPS Priority Mail for 2-3 day delivery time.

We’ve been doing this for over 2 years now, and have had very few misdirected (can you say “lost”?) packages.  If this does happen, your package is insured.

You will receive an email with a tracking # when your order ships. Plus, you can login to your account and check the status of your order.

What do I do if my package doesn't arrive?

First, make sure that you have used the tracking # provided, and have tracked your delivery at http://www.USPS.com.

If your tracking info indicates “delivered”, but you did not receive it… contact your local Post Office as soon as possible.

Do you ship the same day I order?

It has happened, but this is not something you should count on! Normally orders are shipped within 1-5 days.

Please note that we always take delivery times into consideration before shipping, and will mail so that you get your order in the shortest time possible. Holidays may cause delays in shipping.

Do you ship Internationally?

Sorry, but we do not ship our MariGold Bars internationally or to APO addresses. This is due to the long shipping times required to reach those locations.

Will I like it?
