Columbia Gorge Organic unveils gluten-free quinoa snack bars

Columbia Gorge Organic launches vegan, gluten-free snack bars made from organic amaranth, quinoa, millet and pears.


Columbia Gorge Organic is excited to introduce CoGoBars—vegan, gluten-free food bars for planet-conscious people on the go. The all-organic bars are made with a proprietary, gluten-free fruit and grain mix.

“We couldn’t source a bake mix up to our standards for organic ingredients and great taste, so we created our own, and named it CoGoMix™, said Jimmy Stewart, co-owner of Columbia Gorge Organic.

CoGoMix™ is a tasty, gluten-free blend of organic amaranth, quinoa, millet and Columbia Gorge Organic pears from their Hood River, Oregon orchards.

“We are very proud that CoGoMix is made with our own pears,” said Jimmy’s mom, Cheryl. “Nobody is making a vegan bar like this. Our customers are happy,” she added.

Each of the 1.9 oz CoGoBars is gluten free, vegan, and contains no refined sugars. The company offers two soy free varieties, and one featuring 6 g protein. All of the bars are 170-180 calories. The flavors include Peanut Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate, Almond Banana, Superberry and Hemp Apricot.

Columbia Gorge Organic was one of the first organic, family farms in Hood River, Oregon, and now produces over 60 varieties of fruit to make fresh juices, smoothies, canned fruit and now, food bars.
