Routines are good. They keep life simple and easy. They can also begin to feel so blah. So next time you reach for your routine doughnuts and coffee, consider a gourmet snack instead.
Picture this – you're sitting at your desk, or you've just completed a load of household chores and you're in need of a break. Instead of automatically pouring a cup of joe, then mindlessly chomping on some unhealthy or boring piece of food – you reach for snack nirvana – John Wm. Macy's SweetSticks. Why not make this dream come true? You deserve it!
Elevate your mood with a tasty "time out"
SweetSticks are literally a twist on the usual dunking item. Forget Biscotti with it's bland, tooth-breaking texture. This is a delicate, baked delight made from sourdough and it comes in three tantalizing flavors:
- Dutch Chocolate – I know I can never go too long without something chocolatey!
- Java Cinnamon – Who needs flavored coffee creamers when you have this to accompany your mug?
- Madagascar Vanilla – Dream of days-end with the rich flavor.
Have no fear, if you aren't a coffee connoisseur, SweetSticks play well with others. Don't you think that teas, hot chocolate, and especially water could benefit from a friend like Java Cinnamon? While you may not opt to dunk, a little crispy crunch could provide the wake-up and the flavor you need after each sip.
You can keep a combo pack in your desk or pantry for just such an occasion.
Be a Team Player
SweetSticks may be perfect for that "me time", but wait, they can be so much more. Here's another scenario. You're headed to a meeting in the conference room, or you're hosting a morning book club at your home. Simply toss out a dish, or maybe even a lovely glass of SweetSticks to share.
Think about the appreciative glances you'll receive. They'll be thinking –" yay! not bagels or cookies – finally something different and special." You could earn yourself a reputation for being a creative thinker! This is where a handy combo 12-pack would be ideal.
Not a Rookie
As you munch on your twists, think about this tidbit – these are seasoned players. These amazing twists of flavor are the result of a labor of love. Sweetsticks, along with their cousin CheeseSticks are the brain-children of John Wm. Macy. Developed in 1984, these gourmet snacks were launched onto the scene as a unique alternative to the typical "treat".
Extend the Game
It's amazing what a small treat can do to motivate you for the rest of the day. At day's end, you may think back on that get-away you had with your Dutch Chocolate Sweetstick and yearn once again for that flavor, that crunch. Grab a bowl of ice cream, or pudding, and re-live that special gourmet snack moment. You deserve it!
