I’m always willing to support a small business, especially when they cater for people with dietary requirements! Recently I was scrolling through the Facebook group “Coeliacs in the UK” when I saw a post from Matty Taylor, who has recently developed a range of energy bar “bites”. At only 16 years old Matty has launched his own business making these products.
He says, “I started developing a range of energy bars/balls two years ago as I couldn’t find any shop-bought energy bars that tasted nice and weren’t full of additives! I was also taking GCSE Food Technology at the time and for our coursework we had to develop a project so I chose my energy bars!”.
After achieving success at school with this project, Matty went on to launch his own business. He says, “I’m focusing on a range of raw energy bites, Nutritious and Delicious NRG bites! With 4 flavours, ‘Cherry and Dark Chocolate ‘ ‘ Apple and Cinnamon ‘ and Orange and Ginger ‘ and Cranberry Pistachio and Fennel ‘. […] These are perfect for a bespoke hand crafted gift for friends or family at Christmas or simply to be enjoyed as a healthy treat.”
These products are also completely gluten, dairy, wheat, refined sugar free and vegan! They cost £1.30 to £1.50 per energy ball (not including postage).
Quotes from customers include “Blow nakd bars out of the water ” and “Celebration of flavours in the mouth”.
