A Boston Adventure & a Better for You Snack Bar
This past Saturday, my family decided to head to Cambridge for the 51st Head of the Charles Regatta on the Charles River. We have never been to this event, but it is certainly one we will never forget for many reasons! Part of the Charles River is nestled between the Harvard Campus and the Weld Boathouse. There was what felt like thousands of spectators cheering people on and just enjoying a sunny day.
Since there was so much foot traffic, many brands and vendors has tents set up so that eager consumers could test out some of their products and services. My kids had a blast trying samples and learning more about new products. One of my favorite stops that day was at the Brookside Chocolate tent. Rather than just pass out samples of their latest product- Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars, they sent up an elaborate tasting experience.
Inside the iconic purple tent a table for two was set up complete with place settings, a candelabra, and even a chef! Everyone wanted to taste why Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars were the ideal better for you snacking option. Participants like my husband and daughter were carefully blindfolded, and invited to taste two sample bars and share their thoughts.The Brookside Chocolate chef then enthusiastically shared more about the flavors, textures, and ingredients in these bars.
It was certainly a unique and fun experience that really proved to be a hit with not only my family, but many of the crowd-goers. My daughter wasn’t initially sold on the bar, but my husband certainly was! He loves wholesome ingredients like almonds, dark chocolate, fruit, rolled oats, and pumpkin seeds. These bars are made with real fruit, no artificial ingredients, and are cholesterol free. Additionally, they are high in fiber (9 grams), low in sodium, and are a good source of vitamins A, C, and E.
While I didn’t have a chance to officially experience the blindfolded taste test, I did learn a lot about these bars from the helpful staff! Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars are available in the following delicious flavors:
- Cranberry with Blackberry Flavor: Whole roasted almonds, fruit, Brookside dark chocolate, rolled oats, Pumpkin seeds
- Cherry with Pomegranate Flavor: Whole roasted almonds, fruit, Brookside dark chocolate, rolled oats, Pumpkin seeds
- Blueberry with Acai Flavor: Whole roasted almonds, fruit, Brookside dark chocolate, rolled oats, Pumpkin seeds
You can find all three varieties at select club stores nationwide, and in the snack bar isle at select retailers. They are sold in 1.4 oz bars for ($1.69 SRP), or select flavors in 4 count boxes ($4.99 SRP).
Overall, I have to say, Brookside Snacks are not your ordinary snack bar! The taste of the quality ingredients is just so apparent, and the texture is amazing! I most certainly look forward to buying these wholesome bars for my family’s snacking needs.
