A: What you eat or drink before bed makes a difference. People understand they shouldn’t consume caffeine before bed. And, they see how drinking alcohol before bed impacts their sleep. But do we ever even think about sugar, sodium, fat? What about different vitamins and minerals? What makes an energy bar an ENERGY bar? Or an energy drink an ENERGY drink? It’s the ingredients.
Just as food scientists can formulate for energy, they can also formulate and optimize for bedtime as well. There’s a strong consensus among sleep experts about what people should eat if they’re going to snack before bed. At NightFood, we focus on just that: helping people satisfy their powerful and unhealthy night cravings in a better, healthier, more sleep-friendly way.
A: First of all, NightFood bars are NOT energy bars. They’re guilt-free snack bars specially formulated for nighttime. Because the bars are easy on the calories, have less sugar than a cup of skim milk and just the right amount of protein, you won’t feel any guilt having a sweet treat between dinner and bedtime.
A: Not necessarily. In fact, the most prominent sleep experts in the world typically recommend a small snack before bed rather than going to bed hungry. However, eating the wrong thing before bed is a big problem, and that’s the whole reason for what we do here at NightFood.
There are no sleep-inducing ingredients in our NightFood bars.
A: Absolutely! Kids love to snack before bed (don’t we all), and there’s nothing in our bars that presents a problem for them. If they’re old enough to chew it, they’re good to go.
We’ve heard from many parents that having NightFood in the house makes bedtime much easier!
A: No. We do have gluten-free products in development, but they’re not yet available.
There is no wheat in our current inventory of bars. However, oats are a key ingredient. While oats do not necessarily contain gluten, the oats in these bars were transported and then processed in a facility that also handles wheat. Expect that these oats have been in contact with equipment that has processed wheat, and so it is common that the oats will be "cross-contaminated" with gluten.
If you're somebody who absolutely cannot have gluten, our bars are not for you, unfortunately. However, if you're just looking to reduce the amount of gluten in what you eat, it’s likely to be a non-issue for you.
A: Right now, NightFood bars are available in two flavors: Cookies n’ Dreams and Midnight Chocolate Crunch. We’re working to be able to introduce additional flavors of our bars soon!
A: Three words: Ingredients. Ingredients. Ingredients.
It’s about moving away from snacks that are wrecking your diet and your sleep. What would it be worth if tomorrow you felt like you got extra sleep because of what you did or didn’t eat before bed? What’s it worth to get rid of that guilt you feel when you get to the bottom of that bowl of ice cream at night?
Give the bars a try. They’ll keep you away from the junk, and you can’t put a price on that.
A: When you order one box, shipping is a flat $4.95 anywhere in the continental United States.

People write us all the time to tell us they were surprised that the flavor they didn’t think would appeal to them was their new favorite!
