The Rule Breaker Team

Nancy Kalish

Founder & CEO

nancy kalish

What I do: We’re a tiny company, so I do a little of everything from sales to shipping orders. But my favorite job is dreaming up new flavors for Rule Breaker treats and baking dozens of batches until they’re perfect.

One rule I always break: Who says you can’t have dessert for breakfast?

One rule I never break: I thoroughly investigate every ingredient we use to make sure it lives up to our super-high “only good stuff” standards.

In my fridge you’ll find: Several varieties of veggie noodles, Nutpods nondairy creamer—along with baby kale, several kinds of olives, lots of cooked beans, and big boxes of our brownies and blondies (I love them cold!)

How I take my brownies: With my morning coffee, after working out, after dinner…okay, I eat a lot of brownies.

When I'm not at work, I can be found: Being walked by Oscar, my goldendoodle, in my Brooklyn neighborhood or Prospect Park.

When I’m not at work, I can be found: At crossfit, pilates, or watching Netflix.

Top Dog

What I do: Team mascot.

One rule I always break: Nancy says don't steal dirty socks from the laundry. But I do it whenever she's not looking, or I'm bored, or she's not paying attention to me...or I just feel like it.

One rule I never break: Being a good boy.

In my fridge you’ll find: Dog food from It's yummy and it even contains chickpeas along with lots of other stuff that's good for me. My favorite food is cheese, but I only get to eat it on special occasions. Luckily, there's at least one special occasion every day!

How I take my brownies: I don't. I'm a dog. Woof.

When I’m not at work, I can be found: Walking with Nancy, playing with my friends in the park, or sniffing around Brooklyn.
