Voice for Vegans and Veggies


Congrats to John Fahey from Hollymount, Co. Mayo - the recent winner of a our HUGS Competition - who gets to sample a hamper full of delicious and nutritious date and nut sweets. 

Available in three initial flavours – Coconut Date & Nut Sweets, Chocolate Orange Date & Nut Sweets and Chocolate Lime Date & Nut Sweets – HUGS (Healthy, Unique, Gorgeous Stuff) are made with all natural ingredients.

"Our gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian/vegan sweets contain dried fruits and mixed nuts, and are bursting with fabulous flavours," according to HUGS co-founders Rita Ann Burke and Mitzie Murphy.

Under the SuperValu Food Academy Programme, and with the support of Wexford Local Enterprise Office, the range is currently available in SuperValu Wexford.

They can also be found in independent shops and cafés in Gorey, Wexford, Sligo, Wicklow and Stillorgan and Milltown in Dublin. All locations are listed on their Facebook Page.

Since January HUGS sweets have been stocked in SuperValu stores throughout Wicklow, and the duo have no doubt that their tasty sweets will be nationwide very soon!
