It’s no secret that I’m all about beauty, fashion, and living a healthy lifestyle. I mean, I’ve been blogging about these passions of mine for almost 9 years now so I guess it’s not that difficult for people to figure me out, huh? Well, not exactly.

Yes, what I share with the world on my blog is what I love and enjoy doing; however, there’s another side of me that most people don’t know about and today, I’m going to share with you what that is.

My Unexpected Side

Ever since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated with anime. I remember watching anime shows like Dragon Ball with my brother and reading my first manga (aka anime comic books) at the age of 10. I’ve been a fan ever since.

I also a recall a time in college when I was with a group of my guy friends and they started discussing Dragon Ball Z. I chimed in to add my own thoughts to the conversation. They all turned their heads towards me and were shocked to see that me, a girly girl, could be into anime. I said to them, “I guess you didn’t expect that, huh?” We all had a good laugh,  but that conversation was the first of many bonding experiences I had with them that continued throughout my 4 years of college.

I still like to read a Manga every now and then. When I’m flipping throughout the pages with one hand and enjoying a good snack with the other,  I’m in full relax mode.

The perfect snack I currently enjoy eating while reading a Manga book is Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars. The bars are made with real fruit with natural flavors, nuts, and seeds and accented with a delightful dark chocolate. In addition to dark chocolate, there is a new yogurt-flavored cream bar that comes with 3 amazing flavors: Cranberry Blueberry with Citrus, Vanilla Fig and Mango Pineapple. These yogurt-flavored bars are gluten-free, non-GMO bars that contain no artificial flavors. BROOKSIDE Yogurt Flavored Fruit & Nut Bars in Vanilla Fig is so tasty and definitely my favorite from the bunch!

The unexpected combination of intriguing ingredients and fruit flavors make them simply delicious and sweetly satisfying. I’m quite shocked on how amazingly good these bars taste. I guess you can say that Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars have two delightful sides to them just like me.

  1. Those bars look amazing! Adding to my grocery list! I totally laughed out loud reading your post, because I was the same way. My older brother got me into Manga and whenever I’d talk about it with boys at school they’d be so surprised 🙂

  2. I love brook side nuts and chocolate, I have never seen these bars before. I will try to find them at my store.

  3. It’s always nice to be able to chill out and just read a book while eating one of your favorite snacks! I had no idea brookside had fruit and nut bars! The flavors sound amazing!

  4. I haven’t even heard of this brand before, I love it. I am going to use it as a go to for my busy back to school season so I stay up to par with food intake that isn’t going to add so much fat to my belly as my regular junk food quick grabs would!

  5. These fruit and nut bars look so yummy. I love throwing a few in my bag before heading out. They’re a great snack.
