It all started with a berry. A delicious, super nutritious, acai berry. 

The newest wave of the health food revolution centers around the Acai berry. It comes from the acai palm tree, which is native to Central and South America. While there are many claims for it being a super fruit, can aid in weight loss and help with other medical issues, one thing is abundantly clear, it is a key part to a healthy diet! Finding new, fresh tasting and healthy ingredients that common people find enjoyable to eat is incredibly hard. Often times “health food” is not the epitome of flavor, which is certainly not the case with acai.

When the founder of Frutta Bowls (http://fruttabowls.com) Brooke Gagliano first tried an acai berry, she was hooked. That berry became the genesis for what is now one of the fastest growing bowl food franchises.

"I would like to say from myself and Frutta Bowls corporate that we are so lucky and grateful to have frachisees like Kristine and Ray. They are both amazing people that are always so happy and positive. They love to create a relationship with each and every customer, ensuring that they have a great experience." Said Gagliano.

Many customers refer to Frutta Bowls as their healthy addiction.  Colts Neck resident Miranella Hilal said, "I am absolutely addicted. I'm a healthfood person and it's not always easy because I'm a foodie too. Frutta Bowls is healthy, delicious and satisfying. Recently, I picked up one of their party platters for a luncheon and it was a hit! All the ladies loved it and it was guilt free!"
