One of my favorite sour candies is Sour Punch. The candies are full of flavor and the crazy sour reaction that I love. In honor of National Sour Candy Day – Sour Punch is giving one of my readers a fun Sour Punch Gift Pack. Read on for more details.

SAM_4017

What is your favorite flavor of Sour Punch? Mine is the Rainbow Straws. These have four delectable flavors in one pack! Strawberry, Green Apple, Blue Raspberry and Lemon all together for a sour flavor sensation. I love these! They make me pucker at first, then it is a delicious lingering flavor. The shape is fun to eat.

Sour Punch Punchies are little bites of goodness. They are coated pieces of Sour Punch Straws. The coating keeps the sour crystals from getting all over my hands. Pop one at a time or a couple to make flavor combinations. These are great! You could fool friends with the innocent looking candy pieces. They have the sour inside!

Matts Munchies

DCBanner

Remember those shoe leather fruit rolls we had growing up? I have found a delicious premium version fruit snack. Matt’s Munchies is made from wholesome nutritious ingredients. The flavors will entice even the pickiest of eaters.

Matt’s Munchies are made with real fruits and natural ingredients. I love the small bite size peel off portions. I had the pleasure of tasting two of the newest flavors.

SAM_1728Island Mango – made from Organic Mango Puree with Organic Coconut flakes and flavor. Simple ingredients with an incredible taste. The rich sweet mango flavor is accented perfectly with the coconut. This is a delightful tropical taste! You can see the coconut flakes!

SAM_1730

Mango Apricot – Organic Mango Puree is combined with Organic Apricot Puree. Oh my gosh these smell fantastic! Just like a fresh summer apricot. The sweet tart flavor of apricot blends well with the mango. It has a flavor that lingers nicely.

I like the small bite size portions and the entire package is just 80 to 90 calories depending on the flavor. The Island Mango is 90 calories while the Mango Apricot is just 80 calories. The package can be tossed in a backpack or purse for anytime energy or snack cravings. Matt’s Munchies are certified vegan, certified gluten-free, USDA Organic and Non GMO project verified. That is all good stuff!

Give Matt’s Munchies a try. There are many flavors to choose from. Look for them in local health food markets or you can order direct online.

My family enjoys rice. I have an electric rice cooker which makes the preparation super easy. One of my favorite types of rice is Basmati.

I recently had the opportunity to taste a wonderful brand – Amira. The story behind Amira – They are a family owned company since 1915 producing over 200 foods being sold in over 60 countries. I can honestly say their rice is delicious!

Amira Natural Basmati Rice

The Traditional Basmati Rice is a hearty and tasty rice. The grains are a little longer and narrower which means they cook up nicely. I like having the rice plain because of the wonderful flavor. It can be used in side dishes or added to other ingredients. The high quality premium rice can be cooked in several ways:

Electric Rice Cooker

Covered Pan

Microwave

SAM_1739SAM_1740

Of course I used my Electric Rice Cooker. It cooked up nice and fluffy on the white rice setting. The rice looks appetizing when finished cooking. I like the longer grains with the delicate flavor. The taste is delicious! Basmati rice has become a family favorite!

Look for Amira food products in your local health food market. Try the different types of Basmati rice in your family’s favorite dishes.

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Mulberry Love, A Superfruit Drink

Summer is coming which means getting healthier now for swimsuit season. I am treating my body to a delicious superfruit drink filled with antioxidants. Mulberry Love.

The organic mulberry juice is blended with coconut water creating a refreshing beverage! I was not sure what to expect as I have never tasted a mulberry before. The bottle certainly is inviting. I am amazed at the benefits of Mulberry Love.

It helps:

Boost Immunity

Reduce inflammation

Energize

Hydration

Vision

That is just a few benefits. the antioxidants and vitamins are also a plus!

SAM_1736

With so much good stuff going on inside – How does it taste? My goodness, Mulberry Love is delicious! I was able to sample two flavors or Mulberry Love.

SAM_1737

Mulberry Juice with Coconut Water and Grape Juice – It is a tantalizing sweet taste with a touch of tartness to balance out the flavor. The juice is a rich purple red color. The flavor is a burst of berry with a pleasant lingering finish.

SAM_1738

Mulberry Juice with Coconut Water – This is my favorite. It really tastes incredible. I prefer this flavor over the grape juice one. It is sweet enough on its own without the added grape juice. Delicious!

Mulberry Love is made from all natural ingredients and it is certified organic! It is low in fat and the calories in a 8.4 oz bottle range from 105 to 130 depending on the flavor. It was recently announced that a new flavor is being released – Green Tea infused Mulberry Juice. I will have to look for that in my local health food market. I know I will be buying more Mulberry Love!

Mulberry_MultipleFlavors(1)

Look for Mulberry Love in Stores nationwide or you can order directly online. I can find it at my local Vons and Whole Foods Market. For a store near you, check the locator.

My favorite time of year is Spring. Everything is new and bursting with freshness. I love the smell of the orange blossoms filling the air. Sugar Bowl Bakery has brought the fresh enticing orange goodness into their latest flavored Madeleines. New Sugar Bowl Bakery Orange Madeleines are a delectable dessert.

SAM_1721

The madeleines are made from quality ingredients with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. One bite and I could taste the delicate orange zest in a flavor explosion. The madeleines are individually wrapped for freshness. These are perfect with my morning cup of coffee or for a dessert treat. The madeleine is a small cake with a lovely soft texture. The fresh orange flavor really comes through in each bite. They use Valencia oranges added to their famous French madeleine recipe. It is like a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice in a tasty cake! Sugar Bowl Bakery knows baked goods!

SAM_1722SAM_1723

Planning an Easter Brunch? These orange madeleines will be a beautiful and delicious addition to your brunch menu.

Look for Sugar Bowl Bakery products in your favorite retailer nationwide. I can find them in my local Costco.

One2Try Review and Giveaway: Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops – closed

October 13, 2015

68 Comments

Pine Bros Open

DCBanner.jpg

 

Here is a bit of nostalgia. Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops have been helping hoarse throats since 1870. That is a lot of years of soothing!  They were introduced as Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets. Mr. Pine used his confectionery skills, mixing plant glycerine,  gum acacia with natural flavorings to create the soft drop. The recipe is still the same today!

Pine Bros. have been a family favorite of mine since I was a small girl. They go back even further as my mom remembers getting the Pine Bros. red and white box of honey flavor for just a nickel a box! My grandmother always had several boxes in her handbag. (I think she gave them to us for some peace and quiet knowing it took awhile to enjoy one.) The honey was mom’s favorite. I have always loved the cherry and the licorice.

Pine Bros early box

Pine Bros. Throat drops are a long lasting experience. The soft drops filled with flavor gently soothe hoarse throats. The glycerine provides a coating to calm irritated throats. I like the flavors! The flavors are so delicious that you actually want to finish the drop to the end. Not like other much too strong cough drops. How many of you can’t finish one of those menthol drops? I can never get through one of those completely. With Pine Brothers, the effect is tasty relief which lasts a long time.

Pine Bros. comes in 4 flavors:

Honey

Wild Cherry

Licorice (not pictured)

Lemon Citrus

Look for Pine Brothers at your favorite Walmart, Walgreens and CVS store or order directly online. Bring a bit of nostalgia back in your family. Pine Brothers Drops are as good as you remember! Keep some on hand for cough and cold season.

The kids are back in school which means filling lunch boxes with good things. Whether you enjoyed a summer of mindless snacking or continued your healthy eating ways, give the kids something nutritious to fuel their day.

Go Raw Junk Free food makes the tastiest munchies. I am a big fan of Go Raw products. The flavors are outstanding.

A few of my favorites are:

Go Raw Zesty Pizza Sprouted Flax Snax – The small wafers offer a nutty pizza flavored crunch. It is easy to keep munching on these. Kids will love the pizza taste. Each Zesty Pizza flax snax is filled with Sprouted flaxseed, Sprouted Sunflower seeds, spices and more. They are nut free, gluten free, vegan and non-GMO verified. Toss a few on a salad or eat them straight. They are full of fiber, protein and Omega’s. Goodness in every crunch! The small size makes them perfect for little hands.

0000501_pizza-flax-snax_250

Go Raw Carrot Cake Sprouted Cookies – For a touch of sweetness, these delectable Sprouted cookies are made with Organic Coconut, carrots, dates in a blend of sesame seeds and spices. They are softer than the Flax Snax which makes them more cookie like. The carrot cake flavor really shines through. I like them with a cup of coffee for a nice afternoon pick me up.

0000413_carrot-cake-cookie_250

Go Raw Apple Cinnamon Sprouted Granola – Start the day off right with a bowl of granola filled with the beloved flavors of apple and cinnamon. The hearty Sprouted Granola satisfies any time of the day. Perfect for after school snacking too. The Sprouted Granola comes in 4 flavor varieties including a Coco Crunch for those chocolate craving moments.

Why eat raw foods? It is all about nutrition and enzymes. Go Raw makes it easy to consume “living foods”

Look for Go Raw at your local healthy foods market. In my area I can find them at Albertson’s and Mother’s Market. Fill up those lunch boxes or office brief cases with good for you foods.
