Before starting Naked Snacks I didn’t know what a walnut looked like. Sad story, but true.
I did know that my food choices were terrible. Snack time looked like dessert at a four year old’s birthday party. The sugar crashes and empty calories were doing nothing for my health and wellbeing.
The reason for my mindless munching? “Healthy food is boring and doesn’t taste good”. To make the switch I’d need products that were more than just healthy, they’d have to be delicious too.
That was 2014. I’d just met my wife Ryley and she agreed that finding a solution to my own problem might help others too. So we began the journey of product design, focus group testing, and working with the Vancouver culinary community to create a line of snacks that are the most delicious AND nutritious in Canada.
It’s been a hugely rewarding and taste-bud-popping journey since then. Naked Snacks is about more than just our products. We’re about celebrating delicious food with friends and family, living a healthy and active lifestyle, and enjoying the small things – like that extra handful of Hearty Tamari.
We know that not everyone has the same access to healthy food, which is why we partner with Breakfast for Learning. A portion of proceeds from every box supports feeding Canadian children in need. Every time you snack with us you make a difference in the life of someone who really needs a helping hand.
And that’s us, in a nutshell. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we do. Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to snacking with you soon!
