FAQ

  • Shipping Information
    • We ship via UPS and US standard mail and offer $5.95 flat rate shipping across The US. UPS provides premium shipping if you wish to have your shipment arrive sooner. Standard times are 5-7 days. After you place your order, you will receive an email with your confirmation and tracking number. If you have any questions regarding your order, please email inquiries@thesimplybar.com with your order number.
  • Why do shipping costs seem so high?
    • Our shipping costs are calculated automatically at the checkout based on shipping location and size of order (weight). Our warehouse is in upstate New York so locations in the south or in the west have relatively higher shipping costs. We charge only what it costs us to ship the bars out to our customers.
  • Why can't I find your bars or chips at my local retailer?
    • In the US, we are mostly carried in stores in New York and its surrounding states (see our full list of stores). Having said that, we would love to get into more retailers throughout the US, so we encourage you to reach out to your preferred health store(s) and suggest they carry our bars. This would be for both your convenience as well as an introduction for them to our bars that may benefit their other customers as well. 
  • Do you offer samples for people who are interested in trying The Simply Bar?
    • To help new customers try us out, we offer sample packs of our products.
  • Is Simply Choices certified kosher?
    • Yes, The Simply Bar is certified kosher by Orthodox Union (OU), the world’s largest and most widely recognized kosher certification agency, as well as the Kashruth Council of Canada, the largest kosher certification agency in Canada (COR symbol with numbers 553 associated with the authenticity of our designation). Our Simply Protein Chips are certified UM Kosher.
  • Is Simply Choices gluten-free?
    • Yes. We are gluten-free and are manufactured in a gluten-free environment to prevent cross-contamination. We follow strict manufacturing practices and screen all our products using R5-Elisa. At ‹5ppm of gluten, our delicious protein packed bars are both safe for our celiac consumers, as well as an excellent snack option. 
  • Is The Simply Bar facility Gluten-Free?
    • Yes. The Simply Bar facility is maintained within a gluten-free environment. It should be noted that our facility also manufactures oats. Oats are naturally gluten-free. However, there is some concern whether the oats are grown in a field that at some point grew other gluten containing grains. Rest assured, our oats are tested for gluten before and after each usage. 
  • How often do you screen for gluten?
    • We follow strict manufacturing practices and now incorporate R5-Elisa testing. We are proud to share our tasty protein bars with our celiac friends. At ‹5ppm we are considered a safe source of nutrition for even the greatest gluten-intolerant consumer.

  • Do all your products contain nuts?
    • No, not all of our bars are made with nuts in their ingredients. However, the facility which we use to manufacture our product is not nut-free, so we cannot guarantee a nut-free product.
  • Where is the company located?
    • The Wellness Foods head office is in Toronto, Canada. This is where the company and The Simply Bar were first created.
  • Is Simply Choices safe for diabetics?
    • Yes! All our Simply Bars were designed for diabetics. The diabetic conversion of 1 Simply Bar = 3 lean proteins and 1 carbohydrate choice.

    • Yes! Unlike many other bars, The Simply Bar and Chips are vegan. We use no gelatin or whey. We use non-genetically modified soy protein. Our Simply Protein Crunch and Simply Protein Whey are vegetarian.
  • Where can I find the ingredients and nutritional information for your bars?
    • We care about the ingredients we use. When creating our Simply Choices, one of our driving principles was simplicity – simple ingredients that are tasty, vegetarian and easy-to-digest.

  • I purchased a Simply Bar that was more crumbly than other Simply Bars.
    • Crumbliness is a feature we are consistently working to improve and avoid, however, sometimes there are the few bars from a batch that may be more prone to crumbling. We suggest you do not store or keep the bars in a cold environment, as that can contribute to the crumbliness of the bars.
