Something Unexpected

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

A few years ago I was at a sewing conference and one of the teachers passed out some chocolate and said, “Grab some sewing vitamins.” It was a brilliant revelation (and hilarious) to me. Got to keep your strength up while sewing, right? Who am I to argue with logic? So I keep a little treat in my sewing machine for just such an occasion. #shareyourbrookside What's something surprising about you?? Seriously though, that’s what that compartment is for, right?? Who needs bobbins and sewing feet in there? #shareyourbrookside What's something surprising about you?? I was challenged by BROOKSIDE Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars to share something expected and unexpected about my personality. Because, their new bars combine intriguing ingredients and fruit flavors that make them simply delicious and sweetly satisfying. Have a little something expected and unexpected.  Expected: I love a tasty snack while I sew. SHOCKER, I’m sure! I actually keep a stash in my office to hide them from the kids. Shhhh!#shareyourbrookside What's something surprising about you?? Unexpected: I’m 25% passionate and serious and 75% free spirited. Being serious or having plans is often overrated. When it comes to life, I prefer to get outside, have an adventure, love people, and not take things too seriously. I probably joke a little bit too much, but life is short and studies show that laughing is good for your health. So I’m doing it!

So, what is something unexpected about your personality?  And, because we’re talking about snacking and Brookside, have you tried their new bars?? Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars are gluten-free, non-GMO bars that contain no artificial flavors, which I know is important to many of you. For us, being gluten free is gold. My daughter with Celiac Disease is so thankful these are safe for her!  In addition to Dark Chocolate, Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars now come in Yogurt Flavored varieties with three new flavors: Cranberry Blueberry with Citrus, Vanilla Fig and Mango Pineapple. We’ve got all the flavors here and they are all loved. I’m always partial to dark chocolate so I reach for those first, of course. Which flavor would you reach for first?

And, thanks to Brookside, one of you could win up to $1,000 toward a unique and fun adventure! Share your unexpected side on Twitter or Instagram using #ShareYourBROOKSIDE and #SweepsEntry!

    Ooooo – yum! the fruit and yogurt bars look really good, but I’m partial to dark chocolate, I think. Something unexpected?? I’m a total introvert, but I can fake it with the best of them.

    I always brings those nutty fruit bars (fruity nut bars?) with me when I’m going hiking. Those things will saturate you for hours on end. Lots of good calories in very little volume. They are the ultimate snack.
