On Air with Fox 9: Blueberries!
Back in January, I had the opportunity to go back to Fox 9 for another on-air show featuring Driscoll’s blueberries. I have put off this post for a while because I was hoping that Fox 9 would post the recipes on their site and maybe even the clip from my segment, but neither was ever posted. After that never happened, it all kind of fell to the wayside and I just forgot to share it. Until today.

I arrived nice and early to the set and felt like an old pro.
It didn’t take me long to set up which gave me time to relax, look over my notes, and chat with the Fox 9 crew.
The news anchor I worked with this time was Tom Butler. He was so kind and made me feel incredibly comfortable. I was a bit nervous, but did my best to hide it and he definitely helped put me at ease.
Once the cameras were rolling, we were live.
The segment was really great. It was all about healthy snacking and how blueberries can be a super healthy and delicious snack to add to your day.
The best part though was at the end of the segment I got to take part in the Friday Dance-Off. They put on a fun song, the whole crew dances and it is shown live just as the rest of the show is. I don’t know if all of you know this, but this is right up my alley. I love to dance! I killed it with some super corny moves and I’m pretty sure I won the dance-off. 😉
I shared three Driscoll’s recipes with the viewers. On the segment, I put together the spicy trail mix. Feel free to check out the recipes.
Blueberry Cocoa Bites: think Larabar with a sweet blueberry filling.
Spicy Blueberry Trail Mix: I devoured this mix. The sweet and spicy combo really got me!
Gluten-Free Blueberry Macaroons: not my fav for some reason but that’s not to say you won’t like them! You could use any flour you have on hand I am sure.
For the most part, the whole segment went very smoothly. I had a lot of fun once again!
I was incredibly honored to have had the chance to work with Driscoll’s and Fox 9 again. These are memories that I won’t soon forget! I hope they are more of these opportunities in the future!
Now, go make yourself some spicy trail mix!
