Holiday Gift Guide: Loot Crate "Combat" November Review!

No comments:

That time of the month again a very special time of the month. Loot Crate TIME! Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box dedicated to all things geeky and gamey. But this time this month's theme is COMBAT.

This crate contained: 
- Exclusive Cute but Deadly Magnet Set
- Exclusive Fallout 4 Vault Boy Bobblehead
- Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 Pin
- Exclusive Street Fighter Comic Book
- Cute But Deadly Vinyl Figures

And...last but certainly not least...

- TMNT Shredder Sunglasses

I liked this crate but ESPECIALLY the Shredder sunglasses. Now I can do my Shredder impersonation all of the time ("Babies! They're Babies!" - Shredder in TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze). I plan on driving around town rocking these bad boys just to see if anyone thinks I'm crazy -- crazy awesome!

The rest of the Loot Crate was cool too. I have been hearing a lot of hubbub around Fallout 4 so while I am not a fan I know a few people that are and this will make a perfect little gift to give one of them. I'm not familiar with the Cute but Deadly guys either but they're pretty cute and make great little decor items to your fridge with the magnet and the figurine is great on your desk. The Hunger Games pin is great, I love The Hunger Games and will proudly wear it on a jacket or bag. I'm sad it's going to end soon.

Overall, I really enjoyed this crate. Loot Crate is great and makes an excellent gift -- whether you give someone a subscription or you subscribe yourself and end up giving some of the items away as little stocking stuffers or gifts -- it is pretty perfect. Definitely check it out you won't be disappointed!

Holiday Gift Guide is back!

No comments:
It's November so you know what that means! Holiday Gift Guide time! Honestly, I am not a fan of rushing the holidays and I feel bad for Thanksgiving and how we practically skip over it to get to Christmas. But with blog reviews and giveaways, I do like to start the gift guide sooner than later for a few reasons: one is you are more prepared for the season and two is being that the giveaways last two weeks by the time they end we'll be already into the holiday season!

With that I bring you the start of the 2015 Holiday Gift Guide!

Del Taco's New Ensaladas Review and Giveaway!


You guys know I love Del Taco. It's my go-to fast food place because it's reasonably priced and so delicious. They always come out with so many great new items too to improve their already stellar menu. Most recently they've added some delicious handcrafted ensaladas. They're made with fresh and quality ingredients and packed with bold flavors like hand-made pico de gallo salsa, seasoned black beans and they even threw in some bacon.

Del Taco introduced three new ensaladas: 

- Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad: features freshly grilled marinated chicken, fresh sliced Hass avocado, crispy hand-chopped bacon, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, and fresh house-made tortilla chips atop a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce. Served with new cilantro pepita ranch dressing and only 590 calories.

- Mexican Chopped Chicken Salad: include a fresh blend of romaine and iceberg lettuce topped with fresh sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, fresh house-made tortilla chips, spicy jack cheese, seasoned black beans and freshly grilled marinated chicken. Served with salsa casera and only 510 calories.

- Signature Taco Salad: features seasoned beef, freshly sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, cheddar cheese freshly grated from 40-pound blocks, chopped cilantro, seasoned black beans, fresh house-made tortilla chips and real sour cream on a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce. Served with salsa casera and only 540 calories.

I really liked the Mexican Chopped Chicken Salad. To be honest, I don't eat meat but I gave the chicken to my friend and she enjoyed it. I like the variety in the salad. I love black beans and avocado and will eat anything if those two are in it. They salads were a nice size too and pretty filling.

I am extremely happy that they're adding salads to their menu because I am a huge salad person and love them.

Overall, Del Taco definitely doesn't disappoint again, check them out you won't be disappointed!

Loot Crate October Time Review!

No comments:

That time of the month again a very special TIME of the month. Loot Crate TIME! Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box dedicated to all things geeky and gamey. But this time this month's theme is actually TIME! I loved this crate and it is definitely one of my favorites in a while.

This crate was smaller in amount of stuff wise but because the products in this crate were huge and awesome. It's so funny how some of the best fandoms revolve around time and EXTREMELY funny that I received this ONE day before Back to the Future Part 2 day. What an awesome coincidence.

The Crate consisted of:
- Exclusive Back to the Future Dr. Emmett Brown Vinyl Figure
- Exclusive Back to the Future Part II Hoverboard Replica
- Exclusive Doctor Who Spork Utensil

And, the item I was most excited for...

- Exclusive Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure T-Shirt "Be Excellent To Each Other"

I am not lying when I say I put this shirt not the day I received it to wear it the whole day. Nobody complimented me because PEOPLE ARE CRAZY. But I loved it so, so much. I personally think Keanu Reeve's career peeked at Bill and Ted and may be one of the few that think that, but still. I LOVED Bogus Journey too. 

I'm a big Back to the Future fan too, just re-watched the series a few months ago. And I thought Doc Brown and the Hoverboard were so cute. I have a friend though who is a DIE HARD BTTF fan. She has like Marty Jr.'s entire outfit from the sequel -- jacket, shoes, EVERYTHING -- so I may actually end up giving these guys to her. Not because I don't love them -- because I do! -- but I know she'll love them more if that makes sense. I also just love surprising my friends with little gifts like this.

The Doctor Who spork was the only thing I didn't really understand but fortunately my roommate is a huge Whovian so she enjoys this. 

Overall, this crate was amazing, I loved it so much. Even the booklet had an "Outtatime" license plate poster and a Doctor Who -- which doctor poster on the other side. I definitely plan on hanging the license plate up in my room. Once again Loot Crate doesn't disappoint! Definitely check out Loot Crate, you won't be disappointed!

Kozy Shack Indulgent Pudding Review!

No comments:

Hey everyone, you all know I have a sweet tooth so I was very excited when I got the opportunity to review Kozy Shack's new Indulgent line. Kozy Shack creates a great bunch of pudding that I love. Their rice pudding is my go-to for pudding all the time. But now their latest Indulgent line is a huge game changer. Thanks to BzzAgent I was able to check out one for free!

The rich taste and creamy texture of this thick pudding is just what you’re looking for whenever you need to satisfy your craving for something sweet. Salted Caramel, Chocolate Truffle, Vanilla Bean and Dark Chocolate flavors are enticing enough on their own, but knowing that they’re made with simple, premium ingredients like cream and real sugar just makes them extra inviting!

It was a toss up to try Dark Chocolate or Salted Caramel but I ended up trying the Salted Caramel and man I didn't not make the wrong decision!

This flavor is silky smooth but jam-packed with flavor. It's not too sweet or too thick, it's perfect.

Each package is only 200 calories which really isn't that much considering how much of a treat these guys are. Sure it's not filled with vitamins or anything, it's pudding and you need to treat yourself sometimes or "indulge" as the name says.

Overall, I want to say I was surprised with how delicious this pudding was but it's Kozy Shack and I definitely wasn't. They always live up to reputation and are always delicious. Definitely check them out you won't be disappointed!

Buy It! Head on over to your local store and check out their new line! Check out Kozy Shack's website to see where they sell them near you!
