Glo Bars Are Officially For Sale In A Store!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on April 9, 2010

Drumroll please :mrgreen:

I am happy to say that you can now find my Glo bars in a storefront location…

Ambrosia Natural Foods in Thornhill, Ontario!

Untitled 13623137ab_f

Ambrosia is one of the most popular and largest health food stores in Ontario and I could not be more proud to have my Glo Bars in Ambrosia! They have won a bunch of awards and continue to be a favourite among health lovers in the GTA. They have two locations and as of right now my bars are in the Thornhill location.

They even asked me to do a DEMO in the future!

I hear the bars are in the open refrigerator section. I wished I lived nearby so I could go take a picture of the bars in the store!

Thanks for all of your support. :)

Today I am testing a gluten-free and RAW Glo bar. I am on my zillionth trial and I really hope this one works…

See you later :)

Awesome!! Do you have to refrigerate, or is that optional?

Reply

Its optional- they put it in there because they think it will fit better with the other products. :)

Congratulations, Angela! We have an Ambrosia location in Newmarket so I hope they will start to carry the bars too. Another store you may want to contact is Nature’s Emporium in Newmarket – it’s a very large natural grocery store and they carry a variety of baked goods from the GTA.

Hi Angela, That is exciting news about your Glo Bars! In a previous post you wrote that you are doing a 10K tomorrow. I am also running my FIRST 10K tomorrow and I am really excited/nervous. I was wondering how you are preparing for tomorrow? Can you give me any advice as far as what I should eat before hand? It’s supposed to be cold and windy here(Michigan). Any advice on what I should wear, etc. Thank you! I appreciate it and I also LOVE your blog! :)

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 9, 2010 at 2:41 pm

Hi Cristal!
I might be doing a 10k on Sunday…but Im thinking about waiting because I just found i=out the drive is actually 1 hour 45 mins!
But to answer your Q’s…I suggest wearing a throw away layer…either a long sleeved shirt you can toss when you warm up, or an old light jacket you can toss too. Some people also put a garbage bag over their upper body and cut out arm holes and then toss it right before the gun sounds. Apparently it helps the body stay warm! I have never tried it though…It also works for rain.
I always have a green monster before my races, but I suggest eating whatever you normally eat before your training runs- stick with what you know and don’t try anything different on race day.
Most of all…HAVE FUN, don’t ‘think’ too much and just let it FLOW. You are going to have an absolute blast! :) Let me know how it goes!

Ange

Cristal April 10, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Hi Angela! Thank you so much for your advice and encouragement. I made it through my first 10K! (Glad to have the first one under my belt)
I agree an hour and 45 min is quite the drive! If you do race on Sunday, GOOD LUCK to you!:)

Cristal
