Sambazon Sponsors First-Ever National Açaí Bowl Day on April 6

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)Sambazon, the pioneer of organic Amazon Superfoods™, today announced the first National Açaí Bowl Day will take place on April 6, 2013. In addition to Sambazon’s two Açaí Café locations in Southern California, more than 300 juice and smoothie bars nationwide are participating in the inaugural event, where açaí bowls will be half off in most locations.

“I can vividly remember experiencing my first açaí bowl in Brazil, and how after one bite I was hooked,” said Ryan Black, CEO and Co-Founder of Sambazon. “Since that first bowl, we’ve made it our mission to share this Amazon Superfood with the world in a way that matters and adds value to everyone involved. National Açaí Bowl Day is an invitation to experience the healthy, organic flavors of Brazil that inspired the Sambazon founding mission.”

Popularized on the beaches of Brazil and the cafes of Rio, a traditional açaí bowl is a thick-blended smoothie of frozen açaí berries poured into a bowl and topped with fresh fruit plus granola. Packed with antioxidants, healthy omegas and nutrition from real whole-food ingredients, these bowls energize bodies and souls.

Sambazon’s first National Açaí Bowl Day is being celebrated in more than 30 states, from Hawaii to New York, with plans to make the national day an annual event. A full list of participating juice shops and retailers can be found on Sambazon’s website.
