The founders of Squirrel Sisters are actually two sisters (Gracie and Sophie) who have a passion for health and wellbeing; having a yoga teacher for a mother, it would come as no surprise that they have been exposed to the idea of health and wellness from a very young age. The sisters truly believe that life is all about balance and that you can have fun whilst leading a healthy lifestyle. This is where the idea of Squirrel Sisters came from - they wanted to create what they were looking for… guilt-free food that fuelled their body and that was fun, healthy, easy and delicious. The company name ‘Squirrel Sisters’ was a nickname, which has stuck with them since childhood (Squirrel rhymes with their surname ‘Tyrrell’ and is much more fun to say!). Coincidently and perhaps luckily, they also love nuts! These sisters pride themselves on producing the most delicious whole food bars on the market and advocate the idea that in treating yourself you can treat your health!
Squirrel Sisters bars are innovative in format, beautifully packaged and first and foremost delicious… as well as being made with 100% natural ingredients of the highest quality. There are 4 flavours available in the range; Cacao Brownie (82 calories per bar), Cacao Orange (82 calories), Raspberry Ripple (87 calories per bar) and Coconut Cashew (91 calories per bar). The 40g bar is split into two 20g sticks (2x 20g per pack) because the girls know how important portion control is to their consumers and they also want to encourage sharing! Squirrel Sisters bars fit in with a number of lifestyles such as vegan, paleo, gluten and refined sugar free, and they are 100% raw. They can be eaten any time of the day; pre/post workout, for breakfast, the snack between meals, after dinner as a healthy pudding- they are the perfect guilt-free treat!
Squirrel Sisters launched in November 2015 and are available to buy in Whole Foods, Planet Organic, Selfridges, Barrecore Studios, Partridges, Bearfaced Groceries, Revital, Holland and Barrett online and lots of independent stores, juice bars and delis around the UK and also online on their website and on the Yumbles and Caprera websites.
