After being instructed to stay at home, twins Neel and Nand became creative during the outbreak.

Neel and Nand Patel, from Purley, decided to create health-inspired snacks after their mother banned them from eating junk food during the pandemic.

The treats which are infused with products including; nuts, sunflower, pumpkin, chia and hemp seeds, natural fruit flavourings, coconut oil, almond butter and much more, were well-received from family and friends.

Neel and Nand were "overwhelmed" by the positive response so decided to market their sweets on social media which is how The Twin’s Treats was born.

The twins who are studying business, economics, food preparation and nutrition for their GCSE's have since seen Twins Treats go UK- wide, reaching as far as Manchester.

So far the twins have made regular deliveries to Purley, Coulsdon, Wallington, Banstead, Sutton, Horley, Orpington, Kenley, East London and much more.

The twins have received fabulous reviews on UK Trust Pilot.

One person said: "Ordered the 'Rose & Pistachio and Dark Chocolate & Mint Protein Balls'. They were absolutely delicious! Really good as a snack or pre/post an exercise workout."

Another person said: "Amazing quality protein balls bursting with flavours of different fruits.

"Tastes absolutely yummy, I highly recommend The Twins Treats."

Speaking to Your Local Guardian, Neel and Nand Patel said: "We were really bored during lockdown, especially after school and in the summer holidays as there was not much we could do as everything was closed.

"We wanted to create healthy snacks that tasted unhealthy.

"Our products have greatly appealed to those that take physical and mental wellbeing seriously.

"We do get away with baking the odd delicious cake!

"Our weekly orders have now tripled and our products are also stocked in a local café so our parents have had to help out!

"The excitement and challenge of starting a new business has grown our creativity, accountancy and business acumen greatly.

"We thought that this business would be the perfect combination of both of our skills learnt at school."

The Twins Treats are rated 4.4 stars on UK Trust Pilot.

Treats can be customised to suit different tastes and health needs.
