Following on from a successful launch in Great Britain, Claudi & Fin, a delicious, 100% natural Greek style frozen yoghurt lolly, has arrived in Ireland and is about to launch into Dunnes stores.
Having won Pitch Up with Sainsbury’s, a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style competition against 400 foodie brands in 2013, ‘mumpreneurs’ Lucy Woodhouse and Meriel Kehoe were given the opportunity to launch the healthy lolly they created in their kitchens for their young children, Claudi & Fin.
After spending months trying out various flavours and combinations, their children – and chief taste testers – plumped for two sumptuous Greek style yoghurt flavours; strawberry and mango which are both available in a pack of 4. The mouth-watering lollies are made with real fruit, whole milk, Greek style yoghurt containing calcium, potassium and zinc and includes 30% of your child’s recommended daily intake of Vitamin D! What’s more, this deliciously healthy vegetarian treat contains less sugar than 75% of lollies on the market and around the same amount of calories as an apple. * (Strawberry 52 calories, Mango, 57 calories).
Lucy Woodhouse said, “Like a lot of mums, we were surprised by the lack of healthy treats available on the market, so we decided to see if we could come up with something ourselves. We hit the shops, stocked up on tonnes of healthy ingredients, whipped out the blender, and the rest is history.”
Meriel Kehoe goes on to say ‘with an astonishing 70% of children aged between 1 – 4 in Ireland deficient in Vitamin D, we hope we can go some way towards helping prevent serious issues like rickets and other bone deformities.
Priced at €3.50 and available in 36 Dunnes stores, it is clear to see why Claudi & Fin has quickly become the UK’s best-loved frozen yoghurt lolly brand for kids (and adults!).
