This weekend was an eagle court of honor for two boys in our scout troop. The ceremony started at 4pm on Saturday and I had eaten lunch at noon and was planning on having hot dogs at the reception for the newly winged eagles around 6pm. There is alot of stress that goes along with these ceremonies and I felt that my sugars would not hold up without having a snack. In my brief case I keep lots of glucose tablets, gels, and drinks but, for a situation like this I keep granola snacks. Where I need a snack to fill me over till my next meal and not something to get me up from a low BG. The bar I had was a Raspberry Chocolate Almond "Truebar" leftover from the sailing weekend when I had planned on eating it but did not do enough activities for it.
The packaging of the Truebar is not exactly pleasant to look at. They have it in clear see-through plastic that in the advertisement above looks great. Just that the product looks nothing like the advertisment. There is a generous amount of brown rice syrup to keep all the nuts and seeds together. Just that syrup makes the product look less appetizing. Think of how a cliff bar looks like a brownie gone wrong and how the packaging is of some person doing amazing climbs and does not have a clear window to see the browning gone wrong part of the product. Bakery on Main could learn from other organic companies on how to market their product in a more appealing light.
