- Great Divide Bars
- Sour Pop Green Apple Bars
- Cotton Candy Bars
- Vanilla Stick Slices
- Almond Bars

Having a Product Claim Investigated by an Attorney
Remember, if you become ill after ingesting a tainted product, it may be in your best interest to speak to an attorney. You may be able to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer or retail store where the product was purchased.
Any manufacturer that releases a product that is ingested by the public should make sure its safety is outstanding. By filing a lawsuit against a manufacturer over a defective product, you can make sure that it is held liable
