I think its safe to say you never know where a friendship could bring you.
But let me start from the beginning.
My name is Leya, for as long as I could remember Amelia and I were best of friends. We did everything together, and I mean everything! We played together, ate together, gave each other the messiest manicures one can imagine, and helped each other rise.
About three years ago Amelia met Brody and I met Ross (you see, I told you we do everything together.) We were both super excited. We just knew we found our Mr. Rights, or maybe they found us (potato, patato.)
Our duo became a nice big circle: especially since Brody is so close to his brother, Aiden who is pretty much the nicest guy you will ever meet. At this point the five of us constantly spent time together.
Two years down the line, I moved in with Ross and Amelia and Brody got married.
What’s great is that we all live with in this 5 minute radius so we get to see each other all the time. Ross and I constantly host, what I like to call, little tea parties. Oh, did I mention I love to bake? Amelia, Brody, and Aiden would always walk over to our little tea parties. Ross would make tea from exotic dried tea leaves and I would bake and make super healthy yet super delicious snacks. And on occasion not so healthy. But hey, if its made with love its calorie free and super duper healthy, at least that’s what I tell myself.
One evening while we’re having tea with these glorious little cocoa balls that I’ve made. Amelia and Brody look awfully suspicious, they’re just acting weird. Aiden, Ross and I can’t figure out what's up until finally they say “WE’RE PREGO!” They or she (again potato, patato) were pregnant, I couldn’t believe it. We were all gleaming and so excited!
Nine months later Luna was born, she was the most precious little thing I’ve ever laid eyes on. Unfortunately, Amelia couldn’t breast feed so we all took it upon ourselves to find the most nutritious baby formula in existence! We all spent hours reading and researching. I was disgusted to find out how much junk there was in all of these well marketed and commercialized baby formulas. It made me sick to my core. No way was baby Luna going to consume big brand formulas with high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, GMO’s, milk from cows injected with growth hormones, the list goes on, and it ain’t pretty.
At this point I’m not sure which one of us found Holle but who cares, we found it and we were ecstatic and more-so relieved. Since Holle is a European formula it has higher standards. Unfortunately, US FDA passes a lot of junk that you wouldn’t even dream of having in Europe. Which is why Holle is an all clean organic cows milk formula derived from healthy free range cows in a farm in Germany.
So this is how it all started. After finding Holle we wanted to share this little gem. Helping other friends who were new to parenting and really everyone else. Obtaining European products is rather hard in the US so it took some work but eventually we were able to make bulk orders and spread the love. On our journey we also wanted to strive towards environmentally safe, organic, and non-toxic toys and clothes.
That’s how Tastyganics was born, thank you baby Luna you are the reason for Tastyganics.
