Sweet and Caffeinated On The Go!


I always try my best to carve out coffee time every day.  I love waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee waiting for me downstairs each morning.  As well, I enjoy that 2:00 PM caffeinated pick me up alongside some sort of sweet treat.  However, some days I just can’t quite make it to the 2:00 PM ritual…usually because work scheduled an impromptu meeting or there’s suddenly a phone call that must be made.

Thanks to Formato Brothers I don’t have to be deprived of my caffeine & sweet tooth fixes when I’m running out of time.  Instead I just reach for Bali’s Best Espresso & Latte Candies.  These tiny candies are the perfect travel companions.  I can easily house a handful in my purse for those on the go moments.  Bali’s Best Espresso & Latte Candies use real coffee, so I know I’m not missing out on the good stuff.  When I pop one in my mouth I can instantly taste the coffee in the sweet hard shell.  But this delectable experience doesn’t stop there.  After a few minutes there is a nice surprise in the middle:  more melted coffee!  The best part is that 4 pieces equals only about 60 calories.

My coworkers thank you, Formato Brothers….so do I.
