I’m a Dark Chocolate with Blueberry and Acai Kind of Guy. What Are You? #ShareYourBROOKSIDE

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

One thing many people don’t know about me is that I am extremely independent. You could say that is my “BROOKSIDE.” I may coach and play on sports teams so this independence may be a bit unexpected, but it drives me in almost everything I do. I would rather break new ground and innovate than play it safe. Exceptionalism is rarely achieved by following the crowd. I savor being unexpected and being a different thinker than most people and I do it almost any time I can. One way to stand out is to have easy on-the-go wholesome snacks. Right now at my house, we have hockey, baseball, soccer, plus band, which makes my life very busy. The challenge I have is to get my kids not only fed but fed well while learning to be their own independent selves. It’s hard to play ball when your stomach is growling. It’s hard to develop as an athlete without wholesome food and it’s hard to be unique when you don’t make options for yourself.


This is why I am excited about the BROOKSIDE Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars. You can click here to learn more: BROOKSIDE website These bars combine intriguing ingredients and fruit flavors that make delicious and satisfying snacks between games and practices and let’s my children’s personalities stand out in their choices. IMG_8982-1 Tell me, are you more of a Dark chocolate with Cherry and Pomegranate person? Or, a Vanilla Fig person? These bars have two sides to them.

I’m definitely a Dark Chocolate with Blueberry and Acai guy because my personality likes things rich and savory. The raw flavor of the dark chocolate and the richness of the blueberry demonstrate two sides of myself. I like the richness of life in the blueberry because I love motorcycles and airplanes and the rawness of dark chocolate because I simply enjoy the outdoors. IMG_8985-3 The Brookside Yogurt Flavored Fruit and Nut Bars are made with real fruit and natural flavors, nuts, seeds, and are accented with a light yogurt-flavored cream. They are non-GMO, contain no artificial flavors, and are gluten-free. In other words, these bars are authentic and you can indulge while still feeling good about the ingredients. IMG_8993-7 Brookside lets you choose to go light or rich with many different flavor combinations. Choose Dark Chocolate with Cherry and Pomegranate, Cranberry and Blackberry, or Blueberry and Acai. Or, go light with Yogurt with Mango Pineapple, Cranberry Blueberry with Citrus, or Vanilla Fig. There’s an unexpected combination for everyone. So don’t forget! try the new Brookside Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars. Our interns gave them a solid two thumbs up and we each have our own personal favorites. Now let’s go post our BROOKSIDE selfies with the hashtags #ShareYourBROOKSIDE and #SweepsEntry
