When western Massachusetts native David Buckler tried out a raw food diet in 2013, he always looked forward to eating dessert. Doesn’t everybody? But finding guilt-free treats that actually taste good is no small feat, especially raw, vegan, AND gluten-free. Buckler made it his mission to craft sweets people love that love their bodies back. All he needed was a blender, some trays, and a food license. Thus, Buckleberry Foods was born.

But “a good idea isn’t worth anything without action,” Buckler said. “My best advice would be to have a lot of discipline and integrity with what you want to do.” Be consistent, never slack, and whatever it takes, get it done, he continued. “You have to create your own opportunity. Whoever said, ‘follow your dreams’? This day and age the world is too competitive to just go out and do that! So I would say, stick with what you’re good at and create your niche.”

And that’s what he did, armed with years of experience working in the food industry and entrepreneurial savvy from studying business at the European University in Barcelona. The unique food, vibrant colors, and constant energy of Spain re-awakened his senses, evident in his colorful and inviting packaging.

So Buckleberry treats look enticing and taste delicious, but how do they do a body good?

“Basically you’re putting antioxidants into your body,” Buckler said, along with healthy fats in coconut oil and nuts, like almonds, which are also good for cholesterol. Plus, the newest flavor Espresso Cacao Crunch, “Gets you a little jazzed.”

The Chocolate Almond Buttercup and the Raspberry Love Bite are the most popular of his six flavors. But c’mon, they’re bitesize and nutritious. Why not try them all?

Just two years into business, Buckleberry Foods is moving from its Middletown kitchen to a new location in the Old Hankerchief Factory at Main and Broad streets in Warren, from where Buckler will spread his motto of healthy indulgence nationwide.
