Why did you call the brand ‘Freaks of Nature’?
When a friend of ours tasted one of our first puds, she couldn’t believe it was all natural and didn’t have any gluten, dairy, eggs or soya in it. “It’s a freak of nature,” she cried. And we thought, “Ooh, we’ll have that!”.
How do you make your desserts?
Bit of a cheeky question, but we like cheekiness, so we’ll try to explain. Basically, we have a very crafty way to blend our ingredients which make them insanely smooth and creamy. It took us a long time to perfect it, but it was a fun journey. The recipes that we ended up with are version 40 or so. There was a lot of tasting.
Who has approved your desserts?
We’re happy to say that everything we make has been approved by the Vegan Society, Vegetarian Society and Coeliac UK. Our puds are made from plants and nothing else. And they’re totally free from gluten, dairy, eggs and soya.
Where can I buy Freaks of Nature?
Right now you’ll find them in Tesco, Planet Organic and Waitrose, but lots of stockists are very excited about us and we will be with them soon. Do check back here from time to time. If you’d like to find your nearest store, feel free to use our postcode checker. And if your closest stockist isn’t close enough, do let us know and we’ll do our best to change that. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for latest news on stockists launch dates.
How do you sweeten your desserts?
For sweetness, we add things like fruit purée and coconut nectar, and we try to avoid messing around with them too much. That way we keep as many of the nutrients as possible – and of course the fibre, which helps to slow down the release of sugars.
