Our Mission

Prunies® strives to provide functional snacks for your family that are as effective, close to nature, and have the least negative environmental impact as possible.

Tracy, Founder

Do you or does someone in your family experience occasional digestive stress…#2 problems…ok, fine, I’ll say it…CONSTIPATION?!
At the risk of TMI, travel-related…issues…have plagued me ever since I was a kid. As someone who loves to explore new places and meet new people, having “system errors” has often put a major crimp in my plans or just overall made things less enjoyable than they could be.

I searched and tried different methods, but the options available were either too aggressive and harsh or simply ineffective. I was also embarrassed to talk about what I thought were issues unique to me.

It wasn’t until I was nearly 40 and on a trip with friends that I discovered I was not alone.

I brought a container of prunes from the supermarket back to the apartment we were renting, and immediately my friends revealed to me they experienced the same issues as I did. [side note: it turns out 40% of people experience constipation while they are away from home! (The Atlantic, December 28, 2015)]

In the coming months and years, I hope to offer additional solutions to common system disruptions that can occur, and I am committed to doing so in a real, natural and responsible way. So, let me know what you are looking for and stay tuned!

We all enjoyed prune flavor and appreciated prunes for their natural properties, but they weren’t as easy to travel with as we would like.

A lightbulb went off for me, and when I got back home, I started experimenting. A few months later, Prunies® were born!

To my delight, I found out that kiddos also love Prunies® and enjoy their natural benefits – so I made Prunies® Jr. for our young fans and they are now available online on this very website!
