FEATURE STORY /// A Competitor’s First Ironman

With six months of training under his belt and along with a lifetime long competitive streak, Scott Nemeth, one of Sambazon’s own, embarked on a path few of us will ever race down. But to Scotty, that ominous word, the Ironman (2.4 mile bike, 112 mile bike, and 26 mile marathon), has always been inspiring, ever since he saw the race on TV as a little boy.

A Sambazon employee since the very early days, Scott has traveled to Brazil many times for work and pleasure. He even found the love of his life in a small town called Florianopolis. So it was no surprise when Scott registered for Ironman Brazil with the goal of giving back to a community and a country that has given him so much.

RECIPES /// Açaí Sangria + non-alcoholic kid friendly version for the summer BBQ



Cheers to summertime, late afternoon BBQs, and icey cold cocktails! At the Sambazon test kitchen, we’ve discovered a simple yet delicious take on the classic Sangria. It’s extra rich in anthocyanins, a special type of antioxidant (or in other words those awesome purple pigments found in açaí and red wine), that prevent premature aging. It’s a feel-good libation.

And for the kids, just omit the wine, pour a bit more açaí into the glass, and you’ve found yourself a family affair.

For the full recipe, please visit our blog.
