Our Story

From the trails of Hong Kong through the streets of London to the canals of Amsterdam, skinny g’s products have gone through many rounds of testing and iterations to achieve at all-natural energy that is nutritious, delicious, and decadent.

How it all started?

Born in Hong Kong . . .

I was deep in the trails of Hong Kong, exhausted, all sugared-out, and unable to down one more energy gel (#iykyk), a need for change was born.
This had me researching and experimenting, in my home kitchen, for a better solution. An all-natural and nutritious energy source that would keep me going the distance. Most importantly gut-friendly, dairy-free, and vegan.
Nut butter (specifically almonds) fit the perfect sweet spot - it’s calorie-dense nature worked as the perfect slow release energy (off and) on the trails of Hong Kong. Also, super convenient to carry in tiny ziploc bags with me too!

. . . perfected in London

Injured and working desk-bound at home during the pandemic, I started testing the almond butter recipe with friends and family to share my joy of making a nutritious energy snack. And skinny g’s was born.
