GB chew Ltd was set up by Lucy Ponsonby when trained as a chef at Leiths school of Food & Wine. Lucy enjoys a wine gum or two but became aware of how much refined sugar and processed food was in our everyday diet, which caused headaches, fogginess and guilt.

From 2014 she experimented with unique recipes from the kitchen table and sold from a vintage coffee GB van to west Londoners. Her quest was to resolve the unsatisfactory trade-off in the sweet snack category for conscious consumers, who were willing to pay for REAL food, good food with a cuppa or wanting convenience on the go for them or their kids. They would fret over the choice between refined sugar-fused confectionery and bakery products or bland and small health bars which all, in different ways, fall short of what they desired. Lucy’s customers in the van started asking her to make sweet tasting food that happened to be healthy, they didn’t want simple snacks with only 3-5 ingredients, so this started GB chews mission.

Top of the premier league for those like us who love a truly nutritious and 100% organic sweet snack that tastes champion and doesn’t leave you wanting or guilted out! Each GB chew slice boasts exceptional quality, total health and surprising lush flavour. It’s unique and distinctive because of the Yacon root syrup and Flaxseed meal blend, which enhance your digestive system with vital prebiotic fibres. The natural sugars in Yacon root aren’t absorbed into the blood stream, preventing you from those dreaded sugar spikes and foggy head. Added vegan protein from nuts and seeds ensure balanced steady energy.

APRICOT ORANGE GOJI - Chock-full with antioxidants, Unsulphured apricots and goji berries – a Chinese wonder fruit. It’s seedy, soft and sweet with a powerful punch of orange.

ZESTY LEMON SPIRULINA - Despite its distinctly plant green colour, this world’s most nutritious Aztec protein makes an exotic mash-up with a lemon zing.

BAOBAB ALMOND BROWNIE - A rich fudgy sensation, with an almond, raw cocoa crunch and the unique caramel flavour of the African Baobab.

Don’t worry you will be satisfied with the full flavour, big chew and sensible portion of our Stealthily Healthy Slices!
