founders of the bite.

Get to know the 3 guys, the journey, and how they turned their obsession with sundae cones into a bite-sized snack for the world to enjoy.

Our story.

Our founders grew up eating hundreds, if not thousands of sundae cones throughout their childhood; from ice cream trucks, grandma’s house, anywhere they could get their hands on them. There was always a sense of excitement and happiness every time they got down to the end of the sundae cone filled with chocolate. One day, they realized that was their favorite part of the sundae cone all together. They figured they weren’t the only ones who felt the same way, and just like that, Muddy Bites was born.

The journey.

Muddy Bites originally started back in 2018 when our founders had an idea to make their favorite part of a sundae cone as a bite-sized snack. After deciding to move forward with the idea, we went ahead and launched a Kickstarter campaign to help bring the idea of Muddy Bites to the world. Unfortunately, we tried to raise $30,000 in 30 days but did not get funded during the Kickstarter campaign... so we we had to go back to the drawing board.

After a lot of internal changes towards marketing, team management, branding, and so much more, we went ahead and thought it was time to try again on Kickstarter. This time around, we aimed for a smaller goal of $10,000. With lots of support, we hit our Kickstarter campaign goal within 72 hours! Raising a total of $15,989 after the full 30 days. With the money we raised, it was time to turn this bite-sized idea into a real product for all to enjoy!

So we moved into our first facility located in Ankeny, IA. Here, we started production to start fulfilling our Kickstarter orders. And after lots of trial and errors (aka, taste testing), we were able to get all orders sent out to our backers and we anxiously waiting to see what they thought...

THEY LOVED EM! - That’s when we knew we had something special.

Fast forward many months, we have now moved into a new space located in Ames, IA. Here, we have completed over 10,000 orders through our online store, will be expanding into major retailers soon, and have an amazing team of 50+ "biters" working every week.

All within a span of 1 year - pretty crazy, right?

Moving forward, we are hoping to continue to grow Muddy Bites by getting into more retail chains, offering international shipping, sponsoring events, & so much more so everyone in the world can enjoy the new snack that everyone is falling in love with.

Overall, whether you have had some Muddy Bites or not, we want to thank you for checking us out, helping us share our story, and helping us grow our business.
