As a newly pregnant mama, I need to snack a lot. My husband thinks I am crazy because I am literally hungry at least every hour. But making a baby is hard work! So I am always on the look-out for wholesome snacks I can keep in my purse while I am on the go. I recently was able to enjoy a brand new type of snacking experience, thanks to Brookside Chocolate and their new Fruit & Nut Bars.

Brookside Chocolate was encouraging the shoppers at the Town Center in Aurora, CO to try their new Fruit & Nut Bars in a new way – a fancier, more sophisticated way. This isn’t just a snack, it’s a snacking experience.

I was greeted by men and women dressed in chef’s coats and hats, standing by a fancy table set for two in the middle of the mall. They offered me samples of the 3 flavors of the fruit and nut bars:

  • Cranberry with Blackberry Flavor
  • Cherry with Pomegranet Flavor
  • Blueberry with Acai Flavor

My favorite is Cranberry with Blackberry Flavor. The dark chocolate that covers the bottom is just enough for my sweet tooth without being overwhelming. I also loved the whole almonds and pumpkin seeds. 

Not only are Brookside Fruit & Nut bars made with whole ingredients like almonds, pumpkin seeds and real fruit, they are also a good source of fiber, vitamins A, C, and E and they are low in sodium.

For more information about Brookside Snacks check out their website. There is nutritional information for each flavor and links to buy them from Amazon. You can also find them in 4 pack boxes at your local stores.

    I bet these taste really good – I’ve had the Brookside clusters before, and they were delicious. I like that this brand is expanding their range of products.

    That’s quite a presentation for snack bars, lol. I do like the Brookside brand for occasional snacking, though, so I’ll have to check these bars out.

    Fruit and Nut bars are always what we reach for to snack on, or on our way out the door. I need to try this brand.

    I LOVE fruits and nut bars. So much better than grabbing something unhealthy on the go. I usually just make my own bars, but when life gets busy I buy a bunch of them from Whole Foods to stash in my purse. I will be on the lookout for Brookside products.

    I’m not a big nut or dried fruit person but I am in love with the presentation of these! The fancy presentation for the taste testing alone would have me trying one!

    I didn’t know that Brookside now had bars. I love their fruit candy already so these sound like a no brainer for me. Cranberry and Blackberry mixed with dark chocolate sounds so good. I see they are gluten free which is perfect for me and gives me another choice to put in my rotation. I am definitely going to be on the lookout for these.

    These bars look yummy! I’m trying to be more intentional about keeping healthy snacks with me to resist the drive thru allure!

    I love the way they threw a little “thing” to get their product out there. It looks adorable, too!
