Lately, snacking on the go has been at an all time high between sporting events, working, traveling, and my recent foot surgery.  I’ve upped my snacking slightly out of a bit of necessity and convenience.

Why am I snacking so much?

My ‘always painting, always multi tasking, always creating, always driving’ persona has had to take a step back slightly to heal from my foot surgery, so ‘slowing down’ is an unfamiliar and unexpected territory for myself, my family, and for those who know me.  Surprisingly, slowing down has been refreshing (aside from post-operative pain) to settle down a bit and find ways to not always be ‘doing’ stuff.  One way of slowing down has been the snacks!!  I am trying to stay off my feet so I’m not preparing as many snacks myself.  I don’t think twice right now to open the doors to my pantry to reach for a Brookside Fruit and Nut Bar.  Of course, the snacking is within reason.brooksidebarsMy favorite has been the Brookside Yogurt Fruit and Nut bar in the ‘Cranberry Blueberry with Citrus’ flavor.  It has the perfect marriage of two sides of the fruity taste and the yogurt bottom.  The boys love the Brookside Dark Chocolate Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars in the flavor of ‘Blueberry with Acai flavor’.  Which means we are not coveting and hiding our favorites from the other (ahem, I may have been known to do that with my favorite treats).  All the bars have a nice texture and are not dry.


Here are a few Brookside Fruit and Nut Bar facts:

  • Hershey’s new Brookside Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars are made with real fruit with natural flavors, nuts, and seeds and accented with a delightful yogurt-flavored cream. Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars combine intriguing ingredients and fruit flavors that make them simply delicious and sweetly satisfying.
  • Brookside Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars are gluten-free, non-GMO bars that contain no artificial flavors. Both the Dark Chocolate and Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars are the perfect fit for all your snacking needs so you can indulge your taste buds while still feeling good about the ingredients.
  • In addition to Dark Chocolate, Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars now come in Yogurt Flavored varieties with three new flavors to experience: Cranberry Blueberry with Citrus, Vanilla Fig and Mango Pineapple. The new BROOKSIDE Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars are delicious and made with wholesome ingredients, like almonds, so you don’t have to compromise taste.
