Regan Jones, Siggi Hilmarsson and me at Blog Brulee 2015.

Despite the look on his face, Siggi was thrilled to be posing with us.



To say that Siggi Hilmarsson is larger than life is an understatement.  

At the 2015 Blog Brulee, we had the pleasure of welcoming Siggi into our fold. He and his company, siggi’s, were the presenting sponsors of the event and for that, we are filled with gratitude. 

Not only did Siggi and his registered dietitian nutritionist side-kick Abi Kinnear provide us with delicious Icelandic skyr yogurt throughout the weekend, 

Siggi's and Fruit

and put us through the paces of making homemade yogurt, 

SIggi's Yogurt Making Class

Siggi himself regaled us with his personal story of how and why his his yogurt came to be. He told the story of how he built this company from the ground up, taking special care to reference his mother as one of his greatest inspirations.  He was generous, hilarious and humble as he laid it out there for all of us to see. 

What's in Siggi's yogurt


 He spoke to the entrepreneur in all of us when he said the following: 




“If you love what you do, you get less afraid of failure”

Here’s to you, Siggi and team–living the dream, one spoonful of siggi’s at at time.    Thank you for sharing your story.

    This is so brilliant and looks absolutely delicious. Who would think you can add protein to a pie and keep it low in sugar! Wonderful

    Siggi was so funny–and so inspirational (and also, so tall). I loved his messages about doing what you love and pursing your passion.
