Dare Whippet Sticks: Fun Treats for Sharing and Playing With

We love sweets here in our family. I had the opportunity to have fun with Dare's latest fun snacks called Whippet Sticks! It comes in two flavors: Coconut and Brownie.

Dare Whippet Sticks Coconut and Brownie

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Delivering on the ‘Made Better’ promise, Dare is proud to introduce Whippet Sticks Brownie and Coconut – the same Whippets you know and love, with a bit of a twist. Made with real chocolate and coconut, no artificial colours and 0 G of trans fat per serving, Whippet Sticks are an irresistible treat that’s perfect for snacking, sharing and playing.

Dare Whippet Sticks Coconut and Brownie Dare Whippet Sticks Coconut and Brownie

Whippet Sticks Coconut is a delicious, flaky macaroon in a thin snackable stick that is made with real coconut and no artificial colours. It is peanut free and a great addition in school lunch snack as a treat.

Whippet Sticks Brownie is made with real Whippet chocolate and heavenly brownie in a thin stick that's great for snacking. Also made with real chocolate, no artificial colours and is peanut free.


Fun ideas we came up with for playing with the Whippet Sticks: twist them, mix the flavours together, stack them, flatten them, and even use these sticks to decorate cakes or cupcakes. These cookies have a really sweet taste, so we eat them with a glass of milk. My son likes dipping it in milk before he takes a bite of it. We hope Dare will make other flavours in the near future. We really love to have mint chocolate Whippet Sticks!

Anime Revolution 2017: Event Coverage & Artist Features


Anime Revolution 2017 Vancouver

It was another amazing summer event at Anime Revolution (Vancouver's Premiere Anime Convention) during the long weekend (August 4-6). This year it was held at the west building of Vancouver Convention Centre while last year's event was held at the east building, which was a bit more crowded. On the opening day, it was pretty crazy to see this long line up of all the dedicated fans who came out to attend this exciting event.


This year, I like to do a small feature on some of the artist I came across, whose artwork have really stood out for me.

Regina based, Rawry & Pohly is pop art minimalism graffiti, bringing original styles to loved designs.

Meet Drake Tsui! He is a freelance illustrator based in Calgary, Alberta. His artwork has been featured in many online publications.

Meet Patricia Harold of CASE Boutique Canada. We love her adorable crafts. They are plushies - food with faces. They will make you smile.

This is Yang Fan (aka Jiuge). She is a character illustrator and also a mother of two boys! Her drawings are incredible.

Meet Erin! She is an illustrator and character modeler. She creates a lot of works on Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy, which are my favorite.


Thanks again to Anime Revolution for the opportunity to capture event moments as well as share with fans this event coverage. Check out more photos here on my Facebook Gallery: Anime Revolution 2017

Kindie Pop Extravaganza: New Album from Twinkle - "Just Dance"

Kindie Pop Extravaganza: New Album from Twinkle -

With mounting expectations, the summer countdown begins to build, marking every day until the September 15 release of Just Dance, an over-the-top-awesome collection of impetuous dance hits for kids and families from the award-winning Peruvian-American kindie music phenomenon known as Twinkle.

Described as "like Lady Gaga for kids," with a super pop sound mixed with a touch of Broadway belt, a sparkling soupçon of hip hop, and plenty of EDM glam, Twinkle has always danced to the beat of her own drum, breaking barriers, sound and otherwise, with both her music and Harajuku-style presentation.

Launched by a childhood saturated with the sound and fury of Top 40 artists like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Gloria Estefan, Michael Jackson, Prince, Selena, Cher, and Shania Twain, Twinkle has forever experienced a gravitational pull in the direction of performers who create the "whole package," from their infectious melodies and distinctive vocal qualities to their show-stopping presentations and trademark looks.

With her own award-winning albums, raise-the-roof concerts, and one-of-a-kind costuming and make-up, Twinkle follows suit, dazzling kids and families nationwide.

Album highlights include the original version of Twinkle's 2015 kindie hit, "Kidz Rock," featuring the incomparable Mista Cookie Jar, whose spectacular warm-up act is the song's very own, hands-down-ultimate remix produced by Grammy and Emmy award-winner Matthew Gerrard (Kelly Clarkson, Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Big Time Rush, High School Musical) and renowned music programmer/producer Peter Amato (NBC's The Voice, LeAnn Rimes, Ricky Martin). Gerrard and Amato transformed the original song into what Twinkle has christened, "a certified EDM monster track for kids!"

The nine original songs on Just Dance riff on positive themes ranging from dancing through life and living in the moment to making math-time fun-time, sailing through the solar system, and Twinkle's personal affirmation that good manners rock.

The daughter of a Peruvian mom and a Brooklyn-raised, Romanian-Jewish dad, Twinkle's first language was Spanish. With sensitivity and balance, she incorporates both Spanish and English into every performance. Her highly anticipated Spanish version of Just Dance will be released in spring 2018.

Previous albums by Twinkle include Made In The U.S.A. (2012), which was honored with two Global Music Awards (Best Children's Album and Best Children's Song), and Twinkle Time (2009).

Just Dance will be available at iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, CDBaby, on Twinkle's website, and at live Twinkle Time shows.

Downtown Grocer Helps Spread Much Needed Love to BC Wildfire Victims

Downtown Grocer Helps Spread Much Needed Love to BC Wildfire Victims

In response to overwhelming support and feedback from its customers, Urban Fare has announced it will match donations collected by former Hollywood executive and producer Larry Sugar for the victims of the BC wildfires.

Sugar, a long-time Urban Fare customer, decided last week to setup a table outside the Yaletown grocery store and start collecting donations for BC residents impacted by the fires. The response from customers and the public was quick and generous. “Just over the weekend, we raised about two thousand dollars,” said Sugar. “I even had a homeless man give me twenty cents and tell me that he knew what it was like to lose your home.”

Local Vancouver artist Wendy Williams-Watt lent her famous Big Love Ball to Sugar, to help him grab the attention of passersby.

“The Urban Fare team was really touched by the generosity of our customers,” says Michael Huhn, Urban Fare Store Manager. “I knew right away, we had to find a way to support Larry’s efforts. So we’ve invited him back this weekend and we’re gonna match the donations he collects.”

Sugar will be back outside of the Urban Fare store at 177 Davie Street this Saturday (Aug. 12) and Sunday (Aug. 13), from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Donations he collects will go directly to the Red Cross and Urban Fare will match this amount, up to his fundraising goal of $5,000.00

“It’s not just about the money,” says Huhn. “This is about sharing some love with people that really need it right now.”


About Urban Fare

The first Urban Fare opened its doors in 1999 in the revitalized former warehouse district of Yaletown, in Downtown Vancouver. Today, Urban Fare has grown to include a total of 4 stores in Vancouver’s City Centre as well as one location in Kelowna’s Mission neighbourhood.
