Introducing Sejoyia Foods, A New Way of Snacking Chocolate Chip and Salted Caramel..Yum!

unnamed (3)unnamed (4)

Looking for a healthier snack option?

Sejoyia’s products are born from the belief that snacking can be wholesome and healthy while also being undeniably delicious. We use minimal, real food ingredients to provide customers access to satisfying, indulgent snacks that are good for them – Sejoyia snacks feed and energize the body rather than force it to ingest and breakdown foreign toxins that are found in traditional snacks.

2017 began with the exciting launch of two new flavors of their signature cookie, Coco-Roons. Staying true to our roots, they wanted to provide consumers with  two all-American favorites and are adding Chocolate Chip and Salted Caramel to the Coco-Roon lineup.

I had the opportunity to try them and they are healthy and delicious! It’s really tough to find that combo! My favorite is the Chocolate Chip!

Coco-Roons are a delightful, good-for-you indulgence. Made with organic coconut, organic almond flour and sweetened with a touch of pure Vermont maple syrup, Coco-Roons are a great source of energy and the perfect indulgent snack for any sweet tooth.

Lavender is Pet of the Week!

unnamed (1)

Seven-year-old Lavender’s namesake, the lovely herb and flower, was used since ancient times to mean “love.” And our Lavender has love in big ways. She won’t let you alone until you’ve rubbed her head and petted her. Lavender also stands for grace and elegance—and we mean both the plant and the cat! Meet her at the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A576904.

Be inspired by Jen Bricker’s powerful keynote “Everything is Possible”


Born without legs, Jen’s biological parents left her at the hospital. One would think she would be destined for a life of hardship. However, the hand of destiny brought her an amazing adoptive family, who gave her one simple rule, “Never say the word, Can’t.”

As a child, Jen was obsessed with gymnastics. Her idol was gold-medalist, Dominique Moceanu, who inspired Jen to start competing. Against all odds, Jen went on to compete against able-bodied athletes and became a State Champion in power tumbling. As part of her incredible story, Jen later learned that Dominique was actually her biological sister. Watch an interview with Jen and learn more about her story HERE.
