Bridging the gap between taste and nutrition, the Hungry Squirrel full line of sauces fits almost any diet. Entrepreneur, and owner of the GRG restaurant group, Sandra DiCicco, developed the original Hungry Squirrel recipes to give her son a better life. Sandra’s son suffers from Type- 1 diabetes, and Sandra herself has Type- 2. Diabetes is a condition that affects over 34 million Americans. Due to this disease, Sandra and her son de ella adhere to dietary restrictions like all other diabetics. Such restrictions limit many from enjoying certain foods.

Working with renowned food scientists, DiCicco combined family-inspired recipes, creating the Hungry Squirrel brand and product line without all the unhealthy additives common in name brand sauces.
