Its been a busy year for the tasty trail mix company Real Handful. Its has been a whirlwind six months for this creative start up, with extremely positive results. The nutritiously healthy snack with an indulgent twist certainly caught my eye. Well it looks to have caught others also. Announcing that their flavours mochaccino, and strawberry and cream will be stocked across 485 Boots stores . Also to be included as part of their meal deal. This I cant wait for that. As well as this artisan North West store Booths. A shop that prides itself on high quality foods and drinks will place them in 28 of their stores. Just to throw it in there they have also got on board Virgin Trains as part of their snacking menu. Phew what bust bees they have been.
Real Handful founder Joe Taylor said: “It’s been a hugely positive first six months for the business with distribution growing all the time and even more exciting plans for the future. I’ve had more Boots meal deals than hot dinners in my time so I’m thrilled that new consumers will have a chance to trial Real Handful as part of a lunchtime mechanic that’s something of a national treasure!
‘’Working with Booths is equally exciting to us: being based in the north west, we’re huge admirers of their stores with the focus on high quality food and drink and amazing customer service. We’re really looking forward to working with them to introduce Real Handful to consumers within a grocery store environment, supported by sampling activity.’’
Watching American TV shows I have always wondered about their infamous trail mix. Taylor clearly thought so might the rest of the UK. As this bundle of nuts, fruit and choco pieces kept energies high on a trip to the Grand Canyon. Taylor got a lightbulb and saw their was a gap in the market for this type of healthy, balanced snacking. Well he was definitely right. Well done guys and good luck. We cant wait to grab our handful.
