I will start off by showing you the three products that I tried:
First I tried the bean and cheddar snack size burrito. Not only was it yummy, but the reason I like it is because there are times when I'm not hungry enough for a regular size burrito but still need something to curb my hunger and to get "something in my system". This is the perfect sized snack, and it tastes great. I heated it up in the microwave, and it tasted fresh as can be. There are 7g of protein and 4g of fiber.
Second I tried the chicken, bean and rice burrito. It was so good!
I don't eat red meat, so I wanted to try the chicken. It didn't taste over processed like some frozen burritos. It tasted fresh just like the snack size burrito I mentioned above. There was plenty of chicken in the burrito and it filled me up. There is 7g of protein and 2g of fiber.
Third I tried the bean, rice and cheese burrito, this tasted so good too. It is 70% organic, has 12g of protein and 6g of fiber along with being vegetarian.
All of their foods that I tried are exceptional! They offer more than just burritos, they have flatbreads and pizzas too! Be sure to try them out, you can find their products at Whole Foods as well as other food stores, be sure to check their website for a complete list.
Here is their story as seen on their website:
Two guys walk into a bar…Just kidding. It was more like one guy in a freezer section. Bear Naked’s founding finance boss (aka chief financial officer), Tom Spier, ran across a pretty interesting product in early 2009, so he gave his pal Brendan Synnott a ring.
“Brendan, you won’t believe these frozen burritos,” Tom said to Brendan. “They’re actually good. Like, for eating.”
“I LOVE burritos!” Brendan replied, just back from filming Survivor: Tocantins. “Who doesn’t love a good burrito? Tell me more.” Brendan, founding partner of the wildly successful Bear Naked, was looking for his next soon-to-be wildly successful natural food brand.
Phil’s Fresh Foods, Tom explained, was responsible for these all-natural, made-from-scratch burritos of deliciousness.
The guys got curious pretty fast and tracked down the man behind the eponymous brand, Phil Anson. Like many hip brand foremothers and fathers, Phil began as a subsistence entrepreneur. Selling homemade burritos out of a cooler to fellow climbers in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon provided Phil with the means to his desired end — living the glorious life of a hardly employed climber. But, as is often the case with entrepreneurial types, Phil was so good at making those
extra tasty burritos, he ended up with a legitimate business on his hands.
Ten years and a few million burritos later, in walk Brendan and Tom.
The ingredients list was impressive, including humanely and sustainably raised meats and proteins, hormone-free cheese, delicious fresh produce, and traditionally made tortillas. With rad recipes like green chilé for the pork to stew in, and house-made chorizo, Brendan and Tom couldn’t help doing double take.
“How in the heck can you sell a burrito with all this natural, made-from-scratch deliciousness, for $2 freakin .99?” asked the boys from Bear Naked.
And Phil said, “I may not be 20 anymore. And I may have a mortgage and an amazing wife and a brand-new baby boy, but I still have my climber values.”
Brendan took a look in every nook and cranny of Phil’s operation, and all he saw was awesomeness — inspiring, nice folks making natural products with tasty ingredients. Add to that Phil’s dogged commitment to running things green. From the extensive composting to the compulsive recycling, you might say Phil was a little zero-waste obsessed.
So Brendan and Tom kumbaya’d with Phil until a merging was met in the spring of 2009. After a little reflecting on the essential nature of all this burrito love, the new brand — EVOL Foods® — was born.
Today, countless burritos, bowls, flatbreads and pizzas are rolling off the EVOL line, with new outfits and new names, and a growing team of happy folks ensuring they get the very best.
Don’t be surprised if you start seeing EVOL in your best friend’s freezer, wrapped in foil at yo mama’s house or on your officemate’s desk, enticing you at lunchtime.
EVOL Foods. Now with countless EVOL plots to change your world…
