TASTE, TASTE, TASTE
Wave goodbye to your usual dry, fake and chalky bars. We spent over two years perfecting our recipes, combining only natural ingredients to create an indulgent bar that matches the enjoyment of your childhood favourite chocolate bars.
Curb those cravings with 9-10g of natural, plant-powered protein in each bar. Most of us don't need huge amounts of protein, so we've added just the right amount so that you stay full and our bars don't lose what makes them special (the UNREAL taste!).
Simple, clean ingredients that you can feel great about eating. Whether it's the 100% golden roasted peanut butter, the chunky hazelnuts or the fudge-like dates, you can rely on us for the best natural ingredients expertly combined to create moments of magic.
MADE BY US
We make all our products on site in a little factory located in East London, UK. This gives us a lot of creative opportunity and shorter leads times for new products thereby enabling us to create our infamous Flavour of the Month bars. It also allows us to easily maintain the high quality our products and conduct strict quality control procedures to ensure our customers receive only the tastiest and most indulgent bars.
Founder/ Deputy Joke Manager
As the founder of Vive, I have the pleasure/ curse of overseeing everything going on at Vive, which can definitely be overwhelming at times with so much going on.
My role usually is split between looking across all the channels (sales/ marketing/ operations) and speaking with the team to identify and implement efficiencies and formulate strategies and new ideas for us to grow and reach more people.
At the moment a lot of my time is being consumed by overseeing the move to the new factory, which is tricky as it's a distraction from the day to day running of things.
I was born and raised in Scotland & have always been passionate about businesses and brands. I'm also a MASSIVE chocaholic so the combination of those means my running Vive is an absolute dream for me.
Outside of work, I not only think about work but also read books & listen to podcasts about brand building. Thankfully, I have wonderful family and friends who manage to pull me away for a bit of playtime.
Recently, I've been spending a lot of my time trying to get back to playing sport after a bad knee injury (ACL tear) that doesn't want to heal. Hopefully this summer I'll be back at it, otherwise i'll have to stick to my afternoon workouts with Becky.
