Qukes®. The quick and crunchy work friendly snack

October 5, 2021


Chained to the desk? Running between deadlines and running out of steam? Zapped from too many Zoom meetings?  Qukes® are the perfect pick-me-up when you need to power through.


Crisp and crunchy with a refreshing, cleansing flavour, Qukes® are the little desktop snack that’s big on vitamins and minerals. Fun fact: Qukes® health benefits include folate for healthy cells and they’re filled with fibre and Vitamin C. We like to say that they’re nature’s perfect little package of health and nutrition.


And because they’re natural, you’re getting real nutritional benefits that can help you maintain peak focus rather than the highs and lows of sugary snacks. When you’re opting for real food instead of snacks that are highly processed or have hidden sugar traps, you’re making better food choices.


When you’re on the clock, Qukes® are as quick as they are quirky. No prep, no need for a fork, no cutting, just grab a pack straight from the fridge and munch away.

With a little bit more time, you could …


But that’s not all there is to our coolest, crunchiest creations. They work beautifully by themselves, but they’re even better as a team player. Qukes® and dips, yeah? Think tzatziki, hummus, guacamole, salsa, artichoke, tahini. Here at our office, we’re known to be quite partial to Qukes® and beetroot dip.


Of course, Qukes® baby cucumbers know how to get along superbly with other vegetables. They’re best of buddies with tomatoes, carrots, asparagus, capsicum and artichoke. This gives you plenty of fresh new opportunities to expand your lunchbox and grazing board repertoire. You can wrap Qukes® in salami. Or smoked salmon. They partner perfectly with cheese. Add some basil and bocconcini. We’ve even heard that Qukes® with gin and tonic in a tall glass with ice makes a refreshing summer drink with a twist.
