Last week I grabbed coffee with my new Twitter-turned-real friend Brooke–the crazy sweet, badass co-owner of brüks bars.
I can’t remember when I had my very first brüks bar, but it was sometime in the last year or so at Smelly Cat Coffee. I was floored by how good it was, how clean the ingredients are and how it was born and baked right here in Charlotte. (Well, technically Brooke started baking them for the first time for her co-workers in Miami but the full blown business bloomed here in Charlotte.)
brüks bars were born out of necessity to meet co-founder (and fiance!) Sean’s dietary restrictions that demand foods that are gluten, dairy, soy and egg free. When the couple couldn’t find what they wanted in stores, they decided to just make it themselves. The rest is history.
brüks bars come in four flavors: apple pecan, apricot chocolate, cherry espresso and original, and they are awesome.
I feel like this is just the very beginning for how far this business will go, but you can already find brüks bars in over 40 retail locations throughout the greater Charlotte area as well as for sale online. AND because Brooke and Sean are awesome and generous, you’ll also find them right here on Honeystuck because we’re giving away a variety pack of bars to one lucky winner. See details below…
