Barni Bear Sponge Cakes – The Delicious Picnic Treat for Summer Adventures!

Whether you’re lucky enough to be relaxing on the seashore, or a picturesque mountain as your backdrop, one things for sure, your summer adventures, even those in your front yard, are not going to be complete without a picnic basket. Whenever I think of a picnic basket, for some reason or the other, I always imagine a red and white check tablecloth. Being a mommy, I don’t just think about which wine and cheese that’s going to be in my picnic basket, I now think about meals and treats for Kayden too, like Barni Bear sponge cakes.

The oh so very cute spongy bear cakes with soft milk and chocolate flavoured fillings are the perfect treat for children ages three to seven years old.

The shape of the cake surely catches his attention each time one is open. He looks at it, touches it and wanders in amazement…with a look that says, “what kind of a teddy is this…look Mommy, I can eat it…!” and bites into it and he makes this sound, that sounds something like, “mmmh…..mmmh…mmmh”. An adorable munching sound from my adorable son. He does that when he enjoys something. If he sees a Barni Bear cake lying on the kitchen counter, he immediately recognizes the packaging and he points to it to indicate that he wants it. I have peace of mind knowing that there isn’t any colourants or preservatives.

Sometimes Kayden is a fussy eater. On the days he eats well without any fussing, we treat him to some delicious Barni Bear sponge cake. Yes, I tasted it and that’s how I can comment that it is delicious! I’d go as far as saying that adults could include this in their lunch packs as a treat for themselves.

So today, Kayden was a good little boy and ate all his food. As a treat…there was a special delivery for him by his train….yes, you guessed right…it was Barni Bear!

I asked a close friend, Calleen Thompson, who has kids over the ages of 3, if they had tried Barni Bear sponge cakes and what did they think of it.

Calleen commented, “ Damien and Tyra (pictured below) loves it! I also tasted it and I can vouch. They enjoy the soft sponge and the chocolate filling. The lovely size makes it a perfect snack!”

Barni Bear sponge cakes would look great at parties too. Just open each from the packaging, attach them to wooden cocktail sticks and place them in a jar. It can be enjoyed with other treats, like custard or fresh cream or even some fresh fruit.
