Today, the CEO of a Silicon Valley-spawned startup told TechCrunch that his company was “moving into the chewable bar space in a more disruptive way.” That is, they’re making snack bars.

Here’s a hint: That same executive told the New York Times that when “we first started coming up with this idea of portioned, chewable nutrition, we were like, ‘Oh it should be a cube.’” Unfortunately, the exec said that internal testing discovered that “Cubes are really difficult to do.”

Additionally, he told TechCrunch that his company was on a “journey” to “a complete nutrition platform you can enjoy throughout the day.”

Finally, this is how the CEO explained his corporate ethos to the Times: “Before it was all about function. [...] Now you hear words like enjoyment in our mission.”
