Pronounced “A-Sigh-Eeeee” - Who knew?

Açai berries grow in bunches (think small grapes) on the Açai palm tree that can be found throughout the Amazonian rainforest. 

The name of the fruit originally comes from the Amazon Native Tupi word ïwaca'i (and you thought Açai was difficult to pronounce). This means "the fruit that cries", because of the high levels of water held inside the fruit.

Its unique and exotic flavor is slightly sweet like a blackberry and just a little bit bitter kinda like dark chocolate.

Don’t take our word for this, try this delicious snack and find out for yourself and let us know what you think?

revitalize yourself.

This superfruit used to go by the slightly less glamorous name of the West India Cherry but we think acerola sounds way more fun. 

Acerola is believed to originate from the Mexican Yucatan and spread across tropical areas throughout the world with Brazil the largest producer. 

Acerola is similar to the cherry in size and has a distinct taste that is a little sweet and a little bit sour all at the same time.

Actually after samba and soccer we think this must be Brazil’s greatest export...

Take that, tastebuds!

Partners

Cities without Hunger (“Cidades Sem Fome” or CSF) promote urban agriculture in Brazil through the construction of vegetable gardens. CSF works to create jobs and income for vulnerable groups in deprived suburbs by supporting the production of organic food and combating malnutrition among the population.

CSF works across 2 main projects:

  • Urban Gardens: urban gardens producing organic food, creating jobs for the local population, supplying the city with healthy food and generating incomes in the communities served.
  • Public School Gardens: school gardens to supply school meals with nutritious food for disadvantaged students from 5 to 17 years old.
  • Results: 27 urban gardens / 51 school gardens / 800 tons of food produced in 2019

Founders

Ben and Felipe have developed Sambasnax with a love of health & fitness to fit in with their busy lives. We hope you love them as much as we do!

Ben

Ben hails originally from the UK, where he met his Brazilian wife at college way back in 2008 and went on to have two girls, one born in Brazil and one born in the UK. They have spent significant time in Brazil, UK, and the US and are bringing the best of these worlds to SambaSnax.

Ben now lives in Massachusetts with his family (swapping Old England for New) where they love exploring outside in the sunshine and the snow. Ben loves playing sports with his two daughters (especially soccer and basketball), fitness, and travelling the world. His dream is that SambaSnax can showcase some of the bold and inspiring flavors that made him fall in love with Brazil.

Felipe

Felipe was born in Brazil, in the city of Sao Paulo, the largest city in the Americas and Southern Hemisphere. He lived in Ireland between 2008 and 2014, where he met his wife Patricia. They moved to Spain in 2014 (Patricia is Spanish so she decides where the family lives) where they lived until 2019. In the summer of 2019, Felipe, Patricia and their 2 sons moved to California.

Felipe and his family love being in the US and have spent most of their free time (of course when Felipe is not playing with Brazilian superfruits to create yummy snacks) exploring their new home and playing soccer - as authentic Brazilians Felipe and his sons are pretty enthusiastic about soccer. Felipe is super excited to showcase a little bit of Brazilian delight (talking superfruits, not soccer) here in the US.
