We craft great snacks to meet a variety of needs and preferences. Providing choice matters to us, which is why we continue to grow our brands and products to give you more ways to enjoy with Dare. Take a look at where we’ve started and where we’re going


Real Ingredients

Real Ingredients

We are committed to real, which is why we choose real ingredients instead of artificial substitutes. After all, it’s as much about what we don’t put into our products as what we do. Here are a few ways we are keeping it real:

  • We use real chocolate in many of our cookies, including our popular Bear Paws, Whippet and Simple Pleasures brands
  • Real cheese is baked into many of our delicious crackers, including our Breton Cheddar Bites snack crackers
  • Our Dare Ultimate Maple Crème cookies are made with real Canadian maple syrup
  • Real fruits and vegetables are used across a variety of our products including Bear Paws Veggies & Fruits cookies
  • We use a mix of real seeds and grains in our bakery products

Reduced Sugar

Reduced Sugar

We know that many Canadians are looking to reduce their sugar consumption, and don’t want to have to give up the satisfaction of great tasting, crave-worthy snacks in doing so.

We believe snacking should be a pleasure for all. That’s why we:

  • Are expanding the number of products with lower sugar content*, without compromising on taste or texture.
  • Do not use artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols in any of our products
  • Have introduced more ways to help you easily identify the sugar content in all of our products.
*Lower than 10% daily value sugars per serving

Cage Free Eggs

Cage Free Eggs

As part of our commitment and concern for the welfare of animals, Dare has set a goal to source only cage-free eggs by 2025*.

*Target year commitment and volume are dependent on the availability of supply.

Look for the Stamp!

We strive to make snacks that provide taste, enjoyment and peace of mind on quality and nutrition. That’s why we proudly commit to the high standards of reputable, independent associations and display their logo visibly on our products, so you can easily find what matters to you and your family.
