As a new parent, Liz McNulty was having difficulty finding tasty, wholesome, organic snack foods that her family would enjoy, so she sprang into action. Starting with a cereal recipe that doubled as a portable snack, her first products were taste-tested on family, friends and playgroup members. The positive response was so overwhelming that McNulty launched SunnySnacks Organics. The company’s line of organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan nibbles make for flavorful, guilt-free snacking. The Pizza Hummus is a fan favorite. It’s fabulous with crackers, on crisp bread, deployed as a variation on the bruschetta theme or as a vegetable dip. The flagship Sunny Sunrise Cereal is an addictive blend of whole-grain oats, almond flour, coconut and spice, and the all-important crunch factor is a 10 out of 10. The Grainless Granola is perfect alone or in a yogurt parfait, and the plant-based AB&J BubbyBalls are a bite-sized take on the traditional PB&J. Products are available at local farm markets, via private porch pickup or shipping. Reloadable gift cards make sharing the SunnySnacks experience a snap.
