Pereg-Gourmet Review

Having kids, I really want them to eat healthy. The kids on the other hand always want to have sweets, and snacks and unhealthy things. So as a parent, I like to find a great compromise. With that being said, I found Pereg-Gourmet and I was so excited to try them. They definitely make great products that help a family with a nice healthier choice in snacks and meals. 

My older son LOVES cereal. He tries to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And even will try to ask for it for a snack. When we are at the store, he always wants the chocolate cereals or the ones that are filled with sugars and just plain not good for you. So finding the Quinoa Pops was great. He was so excited because he saw the brown box and knew it was chocolate, and saw the ice cream cone on the other one and knew they were for him. I gave him a bowl of the chocolate to try first, he loved it. I also tried it. It is small so easy for little or big mouths to eat it. And it taste great. Not overpowering sweet, but not bland either.  He also chowed down the next morning on the Vanilla pops as well. 

My whole entire family raved over the raw bars. We told the kids, as I do with any type of bar, that it was a candy bar. So I let them pick from the pictures on them. Chocolate Coconut was my absolute favorite. My kids gobbled them all up with no problem. Even my husband was eating them and talking about how good they are. And he is a picky picky guy when it comes to his food sometimes. 

I made up the baby quinoa with dinner one night, and after the initial "What is this?" questions, everyone gave it a try and I didn't hear one complaint. Plates were clean at the end of dinner it was fabulous.

Mrs. Renfro's review and giveaway!

I was given a choice of two wonderful products to review from Mrs. Renfro's. I am a huge salsa eater so I wanted to make sure that I checked out a salsa. And my husband loves barbecue sauce. He also has a love for very very hot things. So I chose one thing for each of us to try. I definitely was not disappointed, and neither was my husband. 

I would like to first talk about the Mrs. Renfro's Roasted Garlic Salsa. I am a bit picky when I eat salsa. I don't like anything that is super processed. So I was skeptical going into this jar. Come to find out, this salsa is delicious. I also have had many problems in the past buying a salsa that is labeled garlic, not tasting like garlic. Mrs. Renfro's actually had a garlic flavor to it. You could also see chunks of garlic in it. I was super impressed. I may have ate this in just a few sittings. It was definitely a salsa that when my husband went to try, I gave him that side eye. 
Some more facts about Mrs. Renfro's Salsa
  • Comes in a variety of flavors and heat levels to suit anyone’s taste buds
  • Fat-free and gluten-free (except the new Craft Beer Salsa)
  • Great as a flavor enhancer for recipes with all the ingredients you  need in a jar
  • Simplifies meal planning – every jar comes with a simple and tasty recipe right on the jar
  • Cooking videos show consumers how to cook delicious and healthy meals with salsa.

 Next, I would like to talk to you about the Mrs. Renfro's Ghost Pepper Barbecue sauce. When my husband found out we had a new barbecue sauce in the house to try. He said it was time to grill some chicken. And even though it wasn't snowing that day, it was cold enough for snow. He went out and started the grill while I thawed out some chicken breast for him to grill up. My biggest fear was that he was going to get the barbecue sauce on the kids food, but he was safe and did a great job. We both tried some before cooking it. It definitely has a kick to it. It was much hotter to me then my husband, because I can not handle spice as well as he can. But it wasn't so bad that I needed to down a gallon of milk or anything. I also made sure to try a piece of chicken with it cooked on there to see if there was a flavor change at all. My husband said his favorite thing about this barbecue sauce is that it didn't have a vinegar flavor like most barbecue sauces with heat added into them. He has been using this jar as an excuse to make things on the grill. He has also tried it on ribs, as well as a topping for his hamburgers. He tries to put it on as much as he can.

You can find Mrs. Renfro's in most grocery retailers, and also here.

BODYARMOR Super drink Review

I couldn't of received BODYARMOR drinks at a better time. My family had all just went through the stomach flu, all of us were dehydrated. And my sons were having a problem getting drinks that they wanted to put into their bodies. I said, "Pick from one of these." So each child picked a different flavor. Before I let them have any I decided to taste test. I wanted to know what was going in their bodies. 

I definitely expected BODYARMOR to be like any typical "sports drink" that you can buy from the gas station. I was so surprised when I tasted each of my kids drinks. They don't taste the same. "Sports drinks" from the gas station always have left a film in my mouth. These tasted so much better, there was no gross film left in my mouth. No colored tongues from all the artificial colors added to the drink. BODYARMOR is naturally sweet, naturally flavored, and has no added dyes to it. So it is naturally delicious. 

I have tried almost every flavor now. My kids ask for this rather then the juice or asking for "pop" which is what they call koolaid. I feel so much better having this in the house for the family to drink rather then having them drink all the artificial sugars and flavors.

Vegan Rob's Review

My family is not vegan. But I do love having vegan friendly snacks around for my kids to snack on. Anything I can do to make sure they have more vegetables is great in my opinion. And why not something that looks like their favorite snacks. 

So finding Vegan Rob's seemed to be perfect for what I needed for my kids. They are constantly wanting snacks. And puffs and chips are some of their favorite things. So when I received the package, they were all excited because they knew that those were bags of snacks. They immediately wanted to try some. So, since they were up for the challenge, and I know that my oldest hates brussel sprouts, that was my first choice. Both my kids, four and two, gobbled them right up. And then asked for more. I was so excited. 

My husband was away when the package came, but he came home the next day and wanted to try all the flavors. He and I were both amazed that it doesn't have an overwhelming taste of just the vegetable. He really liked all the flavors he tried. 

I next tried the tumeric chips and rice chips with salsa. It was so good. I think my favorite is the rice chips. They are so good. Have a great crunch.

Susan Brown's Baby Review

 Being a mom can be tough. Finding good products with natural ingredients that are helpful to you and are good for your baby. We have had quite a few diaper rashes in our house with my oldest son having some bowel issues. And my youngest still in diapers, we always have diaper rash cream on hand. I received this right before I actually needed some for my two year old. It works so well.This luxurious cream contains 12.5% Zinc Oxide and a dermatologist tested array of rich botanical moisturizers INCLUDING OAT, CALENDULA, CHAMOMILE & SHEA BUTTER It isn't greasy and gross, it is nice and smooth and helped clear my sons rash up in just a day and a half. 

We also received the foaming shampoo and body wash to try out. I used this on both my kids with no issues. Typically when we get items that say tear free, it is definitely not tear free. Which can cause so many issues in the bath tub. I had my four year old washing himself up, while I helped my two year old. My four year old ended up with some in his eyes, but with no crying. He said he was completely fine. It doesn't have an overly strong scent. This is PHTHALATE FREE, SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE FREE, PARABEN FREE, TEAR FREE, PH-BALANCED.

Rise Bar Review

My husband is always on the go constantly. And seems to never remember to eat something healthy before he leaves. I am so happy that we have found Rise Bars. They are high in protein, fifteen grams per serving. And they are delicious. They come in assorted flavors. My husband really enjoys the Chocolate Coconut, and the Almond Honey. Though he eats all of them. 

These are great because I can throw them in his lunch box in the morning before he leaves for work. And he can have it on his way to work, or when he first gets in the office. I no longer have to worry about him hitting up the expensive and very unhealthy snacks in the vending machines. 

All made with simple ingredients, you know that you are not eating processed junk food that is not going to keep you filled up. 

Rise bars also have a mini bar out that are great for little ones when you need to make sure they are out on the go with you and need to have something to eat.

Bruce Cost Ginger Ale Review and Giveaway

In my home, my whole family loves ginger ale. We drink it when we are sick (we have had a lot of that in the last few weeks). And we love it anytime. Its typical for us to have some in our fridge at all times. So I was really excited when I found out about Bruce Cost Ginger Ale. Not only is BCGA made with real ginger, which you can see from the settling on the bottom. It also provides ten percent of your daily iron. Which is great! 

We have had a terrible stomach bug mixed with an awful cold for the past week, so BCGA has come with open arms into my home. There are six different flavors which are:

  • Original
  • Blood Orange with Meyer Lemon
  • Passion Fruit with Tumeric
  • Pomegranate
  • Jasmine Tea
  • 66, which only has 66 calories.
 My husband was a huge fan of the 66, and original. We did as instructed after getting them nice and cold in the fridge. The bottles all remind you to shake gingerly. It will mix up the ginger back in with the rest of the drink. My boys both loved the Blood Orange with Meyer Lemons. And my personal favorite was the Pomegranate. They all had a nice ginger flavor, and you could really taste the orange and pomegranate in the other two.
