Sweet Relief

motley fuel!

Last time you scanned the ingredients in Miss Sugar Booger’s snacks, you found things that you couldn’t even pronounce.

Swear off the tongue twisters with Motley Fuel bars.

Created by Stephanie Thaw of Sweetie’s Pie Diner, they’re made with healthy peanut butter, flax seeds, and oats. The five flavors have a variety of dried fruits and nuts, but it’s no surprise that Mosh Pit Mix (dotted with chocolate and almonds) is the hands-down favorite.

Since they’re not too sweet, they’ll even appeal to your sophisticated palate.

Making them a much better mouthful.


Available at Sweetie’s Pie Diner, 1822 Spring Garden Street (215-287-1544 or sweetiespiediner.com); Pumpkin Market, 1610 South Street (215-545-3924 or pumpkinphilly.com); online at motleyfuel.net.
