IT ALL STARTED WITH A SWEET TOOTH.
It all started with one devoted sweet tooth in a small kitchen in Stockholm, on a mission to connect the dots between the world of health/training and the wonderful world of scrumptious sweets. The founder of Tweek, Åsa Rosén, has always had a passion for treats of all shapes, tastes and sizes. With a hectic lifestyle, she developed a stress-related condition which led to an inability to work for long periods of time. This is where it all started. Åsa was determined to find ways to improve her condition and started scanning the globe for different foods and ingredients with known health benefits.
Pastries, bars and other exciting innovations were created in the tiny kitchen in Stockholm.
The goal soon became clear to her as she began to learn more about these exciting ingredients; what if there was a way to create a new type of sweets without adding regular sugar? With natural, clean flavors and where appearance, taste and mouthfeel is no different from traditional candy?
In the world of today we are facing a number of challenges and threats to our health. Our mission at TWEEK is to meet these challenges with a new line of products and by doing so being a part of a bigger mission to provide new, more beneficial options for the people to choose from. We can with pride offer a new type of candy with less calories compared to traditional candy, no added sugar, dietary fibers and flavours and colours from nature. Our contribution is to encourage us all to make new, smarter choices in our everyday lives.
To fix, fine tune and improve
“Our brand name is inspired by the word ´Tweak´ meaning to fix, fine tune and improve. We have ”tweeked” traditional candy and made it better for our health. In our communication we never come up with pointers – instead we aim to inspire.
Our mission is to educate instead of talking about what’s right or wrong. We want to create an awareness without being too prestigious and we do this by using a creative and playful tonality.
We make no claims to be a dietary supplement or a miracle snack, we made a new kind of candy. We believe life should be all about balance – to indulge in good stuff that makes us happy and still be kind to our bodies. And we’re only just getting started.”
– Åsa, The Original Sweet Pilot
SWEETS WITH BENEFITS
The demand for natural ingredients in the foods and drinks we consume is steadily increasing. We like this trend and do what we can to contribute to the market of more natural alternatives.
Our sweets contain no added sugar and the caloric value of our wonderful sweets is up to 50% less than traditional candy. Yet appearance, taste and mouthfeel is no different. We also stay away from preservatives, palm oil and soy lecithin.
We use natural flavours and colouring extracts from nature in all of our products. The natural colours are a range of food ingredients with colouring properties. Did you know that the red in our wonderful gummies comes from sweet potatoes? And the purple from black carrots?
