Maybe I’m stuck in a never ending state of nostalgia filled with memories of shopping for my back to school outfit, finding the coolest backpack, and choosing the latest trendy trapper keeper, but September (not January) has always felt like the beginning of the year to me.
In an effort to push my ‘K-12’ nostalgia onto BN readers everywhere – below are the newest ‘must-haves’ that’ll make you feel like the coolest kid in class…err…I mean the office!

Whatever age we are, we’ll always love chocolate. But as we grow (and our metabolism slows) it’s important to be smarter about our chocolate choices, and that’s where Brewed Chocolate comes in. This low fat low calorie beverage is offered as a basic alternative to coffee, tea, and even wine. Made from raw, unground cocoa beans, the flavor is the natural taste of the cacao, more like a chocolate tea than a traditional hot chocolate. In fact, many people who drink Brewed Chocolate do so as a healthy alternative to coffee. It gives a gentle energy lift without the jitteriness associated with coffee. Now what generic chocolate bar can promise all that?
