If you love tasty treats, Saturday, September 13th is a day worth marking on your calendar. The U.S. will be celebrating National Peanut Day at the same time the world celebrates International Chocolate Day, uniting us all across the globe in praise of deliciousness. At Balance Bar®, we know just how well peanuts and chocolate go together so pairing up these two holidays makes perfect sense to us!
With so many chocolate and peanut Balance Bar® varieties, however, you don’t need to wait for a holiday to take your—and your kid’s—taste buds on a vacation.
The back-to-school months in particular offer plenty of opportunities to get your kids hooked on a nutritious alternative to candy bars and other junk food while still celebrating chocolately, peanut-buttery deliciousness! Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
- Drop a delicious Chocolate Craze or Caramel Nut Blast Balance Bar® into your kid’s lunch bag. The smart nutrition and lasting energy in every delicious bite can help conquer those post-lunch slumps. For an added touch, stick a note to the wrapper with a joke or a fun fact on it!
- Be prepared for the after-school snack rush by keeping a stash of Dark Chocolate Peanut or Yogurt Honey Peanut Balance Bars in the pantry and fresh fruit, like strawberries, blueberries and apples ready in the fridge.
- Reward a hard practice with Cookie Dough or Peanut Butter Balance Bars for the whole team. MVPs and loveable underdogs alike deserve a protein-packed sweet treat for all their hard work!
and find your new favorite flavor!
