Tell Us About Your Business
Keto Kookie, a low carb chocolate chip cookie, originally opened as an online store in order to gauge interest and see how people would respond back in April. Very quickly the team of two realized the potential in their product and had to pause the website as ingredients we’re too expensive and there was a need to deliver on a larger scale.
The idea first started when Kristoffer started a ketogenic diet (Low carb, high fat diet). The hardest thing for Kristoffer was that he was not able to eat anything with gluten so he decided to try an create a cookie designed for his needs. Figuring that others would also be going through the same struggle, the original Keto Kookie website was then created and then followed by a successful Kickstarter launch and campaign.
What Makes Your Company Unique?
There are currently no ready to eat keto friendly cookies available to eat except for the Keto Kookie. The kookie has no added sugar or wheat and still remains delicious! As amazing as that sounds, the true beauty of the Keto Kookie is how it affects those that have tried it. Without even asking, Keto Kookie lovers have been quick to share there story. A man at a Low Carb conference got his first taste of a Keto Kookie and was amazed to find out that his glucose level remained the same even after eating the kookie! Full of excitement he walked straight to the team afterwards to share his story. Another man thanked the Keto Kookie team after finally being able to put a cookie into the lunch box of his son with Type 1 Diabetes.
Stories like these bring nothing but happiness to the team and make what they do all the more worth it!
“We went in wanting a product business and what we got out of it were so many powerful stories and connections with amazing people!”
