Paleo Snack of the year

Do you make and sell kick-ass Paleo savoury or sweet snacks?

You could be the winner of this category for the very first time.

Examples: Paleo energy bars/balls, brownies, coconut products, jerky, biltong, yoghurt, insect-based products, protein bars, bread, nut butters, sweet potato crisps, crackling.
