PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2013) - Winter is just around the corner and with it comes endless opportunities for outdoor adventurers. From downhill skiing and snowboarding to back forest snowshoeing and cold-water fishing, Organic Trailbars from Skout Natural Foods offer outdoor lovers a healthy, on-the-go snack to maintain optimal nutrition.

Available in five flavors, Skout Organic Trailbars are versatile and provide a compact, all-natural source of delicious and nutritious energy for any outdoor quest. Each bar is made from carefully selected organic ingredients, including fruit, oats, almonds and unsweetened dark chocolate.

"Outdoor winter activities demand an enormous amount of energy," said Jason Pastega, founder of Skout Natural Foods. "Whether you're going for a hike or enjoying the slopes, your body burns an abundance of calories in the winter due to the amount of exertion needed to keep your body warm and moving. For this reason, it is important to stay hydrated and properly fueled with meaningful calories."

Skout Organic Trailbars are certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-, dairy- and soy-free, and they contain neither refined sugars nor artificial ingredients.
