What is your shipping policy? We mainly ship through Fed-Ex to destinations across Canada. Shipping days are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of each week. If you purchase before 1 PM on these days, it will be shipped out the same day, otherwise your order will be shipped on the next shipment date. Depending on location, shipping from our factory takes 1-2 days via Fed-Ex.
How should I store them? Since our bars are ALL NATURAL, they require to be refridgerated or put into the freezer. In the fridge, the shelf life of our product is 90 days from the date of production, in which the expiry date can be found on the side of the bar. If frozen, shelf life is extended for up to 6 months. There are also no invert sugars in our bars, so unthawing after freezing will not cause them to become “mushy”. Instead, they will retain their original texture.

When should you eat them? For best results, eat a Daryl’s Bar about one to three hours before exercise, along with water. During prolonged exercise (more than one hour), be sure to eat before fatique and hunger set in. Daryl’s Bars can be consumed during exercise to provide the carbohydrates athletes need. They can also be eaten between meals or during a long, busy day to help sustain energy.
Why do Daryl’s Elite Bars have antioxidants? Our Elite Bars contain vitamins A, C, and E. These may help to prevent or reduce free radical damage to the body. Free radicals are unpaired electrons that can cause damage within the body. Anti-oxidants also play an important role in maintaining a healthy heart, skin and immune system.
How are Daryls Bars sweetened? Daryl Bars are sweetened with two ALL NATURAL sweeteners – Orchard honey and Molasses. Both are minimally processed by natural means. Minimally processed foods, including sweeteners, retain naturally-occuring compounds that can have a beneficial effect on health.
Why not eat a bagel or candy bar instead? You might want to think twice. Our bars contain carbohydrates and a generous amount of protein. Bagels typically contain 48 grams of carbs and just 2 grams of protein. Bagels also don’t have the fiber (2 grams per bagel vs. 7 grams in a Daryl Bar), vitamins, anti-oxidants or minerals such as iron that our bars do. True, candy bars have carbs too, but they are also high in fat, high in processed sugar, and low in fiber, vitamins and minerals. In short, bagels and candy bars can cause a quick “sugar rush” while our bars provide steady, sustained energy.
