If you are looking for a healthy snack which provides you an energy boost and you can easily carry with you, I assure you these energetic homemade natural bars are the ones. Gluten free, dairy free, eggs, flours and sugar free. Besides, they are absolutely yummy!
I discovered them some months ago and they have become my favorite healthy snack to take with me when I go on trips. Every little bite is delicious and they are homemade with just natural fruit and nuts. You can find more than 10 flavor bars, all of them delightful. Among their ingredients you can find almonds, coconut, cocoa, cinnamon, dates, raisins, cashews, clove, ginger, sour cherries, apple…
Behind Fruit Cake Bites is the extraordinary story of the Hungarian Geza Gergely, husband and father of five who was diagnosed with cancer back in 2012. Since then he fought as much as possible to beat this terrible illness and be able to stay with his family. He changed his diet drastically starting to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and drinking a lot of vegetable juice and eliminating flour and processed sugar from his diet. Within 6 months he got back his strength and his health.
This experience made him realize his desire to create a healthy snack family for his children because he didn’t want them poisoning their body with processed sweets full of sugar and chemicals. So while he was battling cancer he thought it was time to start on this project and in 2013 he started to experiment with dried fruits and nuts and created a few unique recipes.
Then, they started to sell their handmade products at some local markets and the success was surprising. During the summer months when tourists invaded Lake Balaton they had to make two teams. One team had to stay back home and manufacture the fruit bars, the other team was out at the market near the lake selling the goodies. Some of the tourist who bought the products were so satisfied they wanted to buy the fruit bars in the future after they would return home.
Eventually some of the customers were health food store owners who wanted to sell the fruit bars in their shops. Word got out to more and more people and they ended up selling to many shops and even wholesalers around Hungary. The requests for their products started to come from other countries also. Opening up their shop on Etsy was a logical step to make these healthy sweets available to even more people regardless of their location around the world.
Nowadays Fruit Cake Bites serve customers from all over the world and strive to not only offer healthy handmade products, but also is committed to give the best possible service.
This way Fruit Cake Bites is born, healthy fruit and nuts snacks, naturally homemade with just natural ingredients.
