Amanda Gilman is the founding father of AMG Snacks, which she launched in 2019. After spending years making her personal snacks, she was impressed to share these scrumptious eats with others. Over the years, she created her personal flavors via recipe experimentation and sharing with household and associates.

Between lengthy days on the workplace and touring to shoppers, Amanda wanted simply accessible, on-the-go snacks. Most “healthy” snack choices turned out to have processed substances or a texture that was too powerful for her “TMJ” syndrome (a jaw dysfunction that causes ache or discomfort when irritated). When she couldn't discover precisely what she was searching for she turned to her studio condo kitchen in New York City and made her personal snacks.
Amanda’s vitality chew snacks are additionally made with a brief checklist of top of the range, all-natural substances. These bitesize snacks are full of important vitamins wanted to gasoline our our bodies: wholesome fat, fiber, and protein. Amanda grew to become excited in regards to the potential thought of making a enterprise round an natural thought. Next, she began researching one merchandise a day to determine what it will take to begin a enterprise. Finally, after 6 months of analysis, Amanda took the leap to pursue AMG Snacks full time and launched the enterprise in December of 2019 via on-line gross sales and started to hit the bottom to get into retail places.
