Host Gina Logue’s interview with Colton Anderson, co-creator of the “Snooze Snack,” first aired June 20 on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and www.wmot.org. You can listen to their conversation above.

Anderson, a senior finance major from Centerville, Tennessee, received an “A” for his marketing proposal for a granola bar with sleep-inducing ingredients. He is seeking a patent from the U.S. Patent Office and approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the item, which he started to create about four years ago.

The granola bar weighs only 25 grams, smaller than most commercial granola bars, but Anderson said he believes it’s the right size for “Snooze Snack.”

“We made the snack more potent and smaller, so that people who are diet-conscious wouldn’t have to worry about the calorie intake before bed,” Anderson said.
