You know those times of the day?
In between meals. Out of home – craving a bite – no grub. Pre-workout. Kids h’angry in the car. Or out playing with friends.Late night movie marathons. Driving back from office and stuck in mile long jams.
And the immediate reflex? Indulging in the first remotely eatable thing that crosses line of sight. Unless you are an obsessive meal planner. For most mortals though, the scene would most likely pan out as grazing out of the fridge or hand-in-the-cookie jar or a Mc Donald’s drive thru or a bag of chips picked en-route.
Now, this is made just for those times.
The Hungry Squirrel Trail Mix is a brown bag of nuts, seeds and dried fruit bits mixed and matched in wholesome combinations to deliver a ‘just right for the moment’ snack experience. So whether, its a light bite or a power booster you hunting for, they have a pack for ‘ya mate.
That Aussie thing? You’ll know shortly. 😉
The brand is a labour of love for Parul & Rohan – fitness buffs, health-nuts & easy living enthusiasts. We like the easy living so much!
As New Zealand residents for over a decade, the duo lead a healthy and simple lifestyle with a touch of raw. On relocating back in the country, they missed the accessibility to simple, healthy food and wanted to bring back honest-to-goodness stuff with unprocessed, quality ingredients.
Enter Hungry Squirrel.
I got to try three mixes – Raw Energy, Nuts about Nuts and Classic Squirrel. Come, dig into my favorite!
Raw Energy is a mix of Cashews, Pumpkin Seeds, Raisins, Melon Seeds, Cranberries, Walnuts. No added sugar. The nuts & seeds had a good crunch which probably comes from their supply chain policy of avoiding mainstream suppliers and relying on small, family run suppliers to ensure quality produce.
The packaging is thoughtful – brown paper bag with a little tear-away on both sides & resealable.
So, you just eat as much as you need and reseal for the next time. In fact, they suggest a quarter cup helping at one time, to avoid pushing the snack in the ‘danger food’ zone, keeping in view the calories in nuts.
