Health-conscious couple Ondrea and Marquez Fernandez are the founders of The Dough Bar. They make “guilt-free”, “sugar deprived”, protein-rich doughnuts. They’re pitching The Dough Bar on Shark Tank on January 28. They’re asking for $300,000 in exchange for 15 percent equity. Their demonstration is memorable as they ask their professional bodybuilder friend Dave Ziegler to flex his gigantic muscles while chomping on The Dough Bar doughnuts. They accepted Barbara Corcoran’s offer of $300,000 for 20 percent.
Since taping the Shark Tank episode, The Dough Bar has announced its second product, The Crispy Bar. It’s a healthy alternative to a typical Rice Krispies Treat. The Crispy Bar is vegan, gluten free, non GMO, no soy and no dairy, and each bar is packed with 15 grams of protein. And one CrispyBar costs about $3.25, less than one Dough Bar doughnut ($3.75). The Crispy Bar is available in original and chocolate chip flavors and in 6-packs for $19.50 and 12-packs for $33.99, and they don’t need to be kept in the fridge or freezer like The Dough Bar doughnuts. New episodes of Shark Tank (Season 9) air Sundays at 9pm and 10pm on ABC. [Related: 27 Favorite Shark Tank Products — New List]
