Blender Bites was highly received as 91% of respondents gave 5 or 4 stars with a 96% recommendation rate. Winners in each category of BNPA are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Blender’s 1-step smoothies are made with a variety of delicious organic fruits, greens and functional ingredients such as immune supporting plant-based vitamins and minerals to provide consumers with a convenient solution for their daily smoothie routine. They come in three flavours: Green Dtox, Power Berry and Vita Smoothie, and are also perfect for bowls, ice creams and popsicles, desserts, and sweet treats.
“Blender Bites is extremely proud to have been nominated for this prestigious Canadian award. Our smoothie innovation has simplified the lives of thousands of Canadians during this extremely trying pandemic and we are honored to be recognized as a nominee for the healthy food/frozen beverage category. The exposure that this type of award could provide the company would be extremely beneficial to the brand as we pioneer into the US market.” commented Chelsie Hodge, Blender Bites CEO.
