Review: Dew Puff

 
  Dew Puff offers 3 varieties of their konjac sponge:
  • Original Konjac Sponge - Simply Konjac. No frills. No additives Perfect for use with your favorite cleanser or alone! 
  • Asian Clay Konjac Sponge - Clay has been used by ancient people in almost every culture of the world. Our Asian Clay sponge soothes, cleanses, and moisturizes. 
  • Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Sponge - Perfect for troubled, erupted, oily skin. The Bamboo Charcoal Sponge draws impurities out and provides all the positives qualities of charcoal cleansing.


My thoughts:
I have honestly never even heard of konjac sponges until now. I am always willing to try something new especially if it will help my skin. The dew puffs are amazing!! My favorite is the bamboo charcoal. They are so soft and gentle and really make you want to wash your face. I have had so many irrations due to sensitive skin on my face, that it makes me dread washing it. NOT anymore!! I like that the sponges last for up to 3 months before you have to replace them. How awesome is that?

Review: Tru-nut Powdered Peanut Butter

I do not know about you, but I LOVE peanut butter. The only bad thing is it can be very fattening. I recently discovered Tru-nut Powdered Peanut Butter and was sent a jar for review.

 

Okay, so I know you are going to ask What is powdered peanut butter??

Powdered Peanut Butter is the newest thing to happen to peanut butter in… well, a long time.  Tru-Nut makes Powdered Peanut Butter in three flavors, original peanut butter flavorchocolate and cinnamon.  Unlike traditional peanut butter, Tru-Nut contains at least 85% less fat and fat calories.  Tru-Nut is non-GMO, all-natural and gluten-free.  So how is it made?
Powdered Peanut Butter starts out with high oleic, roasted peanuts.  The peanuts are then pressed to remove the oils.  The peanuts are then ground into a fine powder that still retains all of the natural peanut flavor.
There’s a million different ways you can use Tru-Nut.  Want to make simple peanut butter?  Just mix Tru-Nut with water and stir, and you’ve got tasty peanut butter.  Tru-Nut can also be added to milk shakes, protein shakes, brownies, cookies, and as a topping for dishes like pad thai and oatmeal.  You are only limited by your own creativity in the ways that you can make Tru-Nut a part of your daily diet.
I was anxious to try the powdered peanut butter in my morning smoothie. I usually make a peanut butter, bananna smoothie with spinach leaves, ice, and milk. Wow. Its really yummy. It tasted no different than regular peanut butter but so glad its much more healthier!!

Mama's Magic Mix

For review I received:
Bananna Split Baby Mama
 Caramel Apple MILF 
Raspberry Mocha Swagger

Banana Split Baby Mama Drama Caramel Apple MILFRaspberry Mocha Swagger Wagon

Mama’s Magic Mix is all about mom empowerment; now don’t get me wrong, dudes are cool too.  After all, I am married to one and raising two little dudes along with a dude-ette.  But this company was created to celebrate the awesome-ness of ladies (can I get woot-woot?!), and all that is “I am woman hear-me-roar!”  This is a family deal, and while we take our products seriously (they have to taste AH-MA-ZING!), we don’t take ourselves or life too seriously. 

Banana Split Baby Mama-freeze dried bananas and strawberries, salted peanuts, caramel puffs & chocolate covered graham crackers.

Review: This one was my favorite. I loved the freeze dried bananas and the chocolate covered graham crackers. Yummy!!

Caramel Apple MILF-freeze dried green apples, roasted cinnamon almonds, caramel popcorn & cinnamon malt balls.

Review: This was my least favorite magic mix. I am not much on cinnamon but I did like the cinnamon almonds.

Raspberry Mocha Swagger-freeze dried raspberries, roasted almonds, dark chocolate covered espresso beans & white chocolate chips.

Review: I am a HUGE fan of anything chocolate. I really loved the roasted almonds, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, and white chocolate chips. Such a great combo and so good!!

Review: Sheila G's Brownie Brittle+ Giveaway

I have some awesome snacks to tell you about today. I was recently given the chance to review a 4 sample pack of Brownie Brittle

BB_FeaturedImage_WW

In 1992, Sheila G. Mains, better known in the food business as Sheila G, took a treasured family recipe for fudge brownies and baked her way into a thriving business. You may even have tasted one of her rich, dense squares of heaven at some of our nation’s finest restaurants and theme parks. So, where exactly did the inspiration for her scrumptious new Brownie Brittle™ snack come from?

Like many brownie aficionados, Sheila is particularly fond of the crispy edges. In fact, on many an afternoon she would walk through the bakery gathering the crispy batter off the sides of the sheet pans as the chocolate brownies cooled in their racks. It had that same rich chocolate taste, but with an amazing crunch. That started her wondering: How could she create a whole pan of crunchy edges? Well, lucky for us, she figured it out! Now you too can satisfy your sweet tooth in a snap with Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle™ snacks!

My husband and I really enjoyed the brownie brittle.  It so light, crispy, and yummy. We could not believe how great they tasted!!
