nutpods is a deliciously wholesome, dairy-free creamer made from heart healthy almonds and MCT-rich coconuts with a rich and creamy balanced taste.

We believe that there should be an alternative option for the discerning and informed dairy-free coffee creamer user. Unfortunately, most traditional non-dairy and even natural dairy-free coffee creamers can contain many undesirable and artificial ingredients.  Natural creamers can be thin and watery; not rich and creamy. Unlike the existing options, nutpods is free from the following so you can be free to indulge:
-Soy
-Sodium Caseinate (a milk protein)
-Carrageenan
-Artificial flavors, colors and preservatives
-Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils

 For a list of ingredients, please click on the photo of each flavor.

We did it!

We started our little company with a Kickstarter campaign in October 2013 (www.kickstarter.com Project Name: nutpods) to bring our much anticipated products to the commercial market. Our goal was to raise $30K to release our first delectable flavor, Unsweetened Original. Well, thanks to the generosity of 510 backers, WE DID IT! We were able to actually surpass our goal by $32,164!  The money raised will go towards converting Madeline's kitchen formula into a full-blown commercial formulation.  Funds will also be used on packaging, production and distribution costs.

Thanks to you, our supporters, we will soon be able to transform nutpods into a bona fide commercial production and make our wholesome and deliciously dairy-free creamy pods available to health-conscious coffee and tea lovers everywhere.

Thank you for your support in giving us the privilege to finally bring a more natural and wholesome option to the market!

Being Founder.

I recently planned and booked our first annual holiday company dinner for our nutpods team. Its important to recognize and acknowledge the talents and efforts of those on our team that are working hard beside me to bring nutpods to retail life. And that reminded me that as much of a team approach as I like to take, there are times when I remember that I am the founder of this company and what a gift that is.

In addition to creating a product and all the labor involved to bringing it to market, I'm also creating a company as well, which is equally exciting to me and very, very personally fulfilling. Like most people, I've worked for other companies, large and small. Now, I get to take those experiences and apply it to my own.

Will we have a United Way Day of Caring? Yes. Will we offer corporate support to any particular non-profits? Yes: we believe in corporate stewardship in the areas of environmental sustainability (We are excited to partner with 1% for the Planet) and animal advocacy for our homeless furry friends (I've got my favorite but want to consider other worthy organizations like ASPCA).

Way back in MBA school, I know some of my peers saw setting the Mission, Vision and Core Values of a company as fluffy, but I LOVED that stuff. I could see that a mission is WHY you're doing what you're doing. The vision is WHERE you want to be.  Your core values is WHO you are, and your strategic areas of focus are HOW you're going to get there. It's your road map to your business.  It's important for me to share who we are as we want our fans, our employees, our vendors and our partners to know us, to know what we believe in and to know what we're working so passionately towards. 

I'm so excited to work with my team to set these foundation blocks for our company and I can't wait to share them with you in due time. Thanks for coming along on this journey with us.

I can hardly wait for the opportunity to order! I have a true dairy allergy – headache, stuffy nose, pulse raises @ 15 beats per minute, too much and I get disoriented – run red lights… I eat no dairy other than “non-dairy” creamer in my coffee… which contains sodium caseinate – which causes a reaction. I live with a stuffy nose because I’m not willing to either give up my coffee OR drink it black. I am anxiously awaiting your email!!
Very Sincerely,
Carolyn
