Oh, cool. Just when I was thinking about maybe ordering some bars, you throw in a bit more temptation. :) Will do later today...

How might I convince some of the local health food stores to start carrying Vega? I haven't seen them anywhere in Houston - yet.

The individual snack packs are 20grams = 1/3 of a serving. They are valued at $2.15-$2.99 each and I'm throwing in a bunch with each order. I'm also putting bars in each order (value at $3 each) and a bunch of other things.

So each 1/3 little pack would be about 8-10grams protein and 80-100 calories.

The best buy is the big tub. Big tub purchases also get the best prices.

Any order over $100 will also get some nice bonuses. Be sure to e-mail me what your order was, I'll confirm it with Food Fight! which is just down the road, and I'll send your package out.

Thanks!

Hey Michelle,

Great to see you on here again more frequently. As for getting it in local stores. We're still totally new to the US, and basically you can just ask for it and they can contact the company for all the wholsale order forms, etc.

Or, if you have specific places in mind, give me their mailing address and I can send them all the info as well as samples.

Thanks!

And if you make an order of a whole box of bars, or one of the tubs of powder, e-mail me informing me and I'll just confirm things with Food Fight! and send a package of goodies off to you.

Food Fight! has really risen to the occasion! In addition to all the stuff I'm sending out, Food Fight! has agreed to take 10% off orders of two tubs or more. It's OK to get different flavors. Thank you for supporting Food Fight!

Everyone wins!

Ooo, I have been wanting to get some bars, so I'm gonna do it now. I was going to wait and just pick some up during our visit, but free goodies are too much to pass up! So now I will order one box now and pick up more when we are in Portland.

Just ordered it along with my vegan weight lifting gloves/straps. Can't wait to finally start using more Vega.

I'm getting some Vega for Christmas/Winter Solstice(i don't know how progressive my mom is being this year :lol: :lol: )

And Goji berries. mmmmmmmmm.

Your bonus pack was put in the mail today.

Thanks for the order. I went to Food Fight! today and almost all their Vega was gone! They were super pumped about the response. I gave them some bonus Vega too, since they are offering the 10% discount.

Community support is awesome! Thanks everyone.

They ordered a bunch more 2 days ago, after the huge response from our forum members. No worries, they order on a regular basis to stay stocked up.

Thanks for your concern though :D

The berry and chocolate big tubs have 15 two-scoop servings in, while the natural flavor has 17 servings.

Now I've tried all the Vega flavors. Thanks for the samples Robert.
The Berry flavor is definitely my favorite powder.
All the bars taste good so I can't decide which is my favorite.
