Blue Diamond Honey Almonds Review!

No comments:

Blue Diamonds is at it again with some more delicious almonds. I'm a big snacker especially nuts. Typically I don't like plain almonds but with Blue Diamond they have such a great variety of flavors that even if you're not super into almonds you're bound to like one.

They sent me the following flavors:
Honey Roasted Cinnamon
Bold Honey Dijon

It's a honey overload! I loved them though.

I was very hesitant with the honey dijon because I typically hate any mustard related thing. It took me a few bites but I am digging them now. The almond and honey dijon compliment each other so well. They aren't kidding labeling it "bold" either because there's a serious bang of flavor the first second you put it in your mouth. They're great when you want to snack on something a little more savory than sweet. 

The Honey Roasted Cinnamon was definitely love at first bite. I remember having honey roasted almonds all the time as a kid whenever my mom and I went to craft shows (she's big into those country folk art crafts). These don't have that hard sugary layer though like those almonds do and instead are kind of dusted with honey roasted cinnamon, it's delicious. I love them because they bring me a sort of euphoric nostalgia but also just taste so great. This is for the sweet snacker which is typically me. I have a hardcore sweet tooth.

Another great thing about Blue Diamond aside from the delicious almonds is that they're trying to help save the honeybees. On the lid it says "honeybees pollinate our Almond trees and 1/3 of the world's food supply. The health of honeybees is important so Blue Diamond is donating to Honeybee Research. BeeCause we Care."

Once again, Blue Diamond did not disappoint. Both almonds taste so great. Definitely check them out you won't be disappointed! This post was sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds.

Benefit's Roller Lash Review!

No comments:

I'm a lady so I do use makeup, I'm one of those annoying people that hate to leave the house (unless I'm going to the gym or working out) without at least face makeup on. That's why I was very excited when Klout perk'd me with Benefit's Roller Lash mascara

I actually was running low on mascara so this is perfect. I'm not super picky with mascara, right now I'm using a freebie I got from Clinique in one of those makeup sample bags they give you after buying a bunch of makeup. But I was very excited to try something I knew is better than just a freebie. I've actually used Benefit's Bad Gal Lash before too so I am a fan. 

The Roller Lash has a special hook'n'roll brush helps design and position catches, lifts, and curls. The mascara formula has an instant curve-setting formula that holds for 12 hours. 

Roller Lash wants you to not have to do that extra step in curling your lashes with that metal thing. It wants to do it for you. I think it does a great job. It also doesn't clump my lashes or make them stick together, Tammy Faye style.

On the box it says has percentages of people that compliment the product. It was taken from a consumer panel on 31 women after 4 weeks. 97% said it visibly lifts lashes, 87% said it gave a long-lasting curl, 94% said it made their eyes look more wide open. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this mascara. It lifted my lashes and gave them a nice curl. Definitely check them out you won't be disappointed!

Gardein BzzAgent Review!

No comments:

I'm pretty sure you guys know this but I am a vegetarian. If you want to be technical I'm an ovo-lacto-pescatarian meaning I eat eggs, milk, and fish. But fortunately we live in a world where it is super easy to avoid meat because there's so many delicious substitutions. That's where Gardein comes in. Gardein is a company that sells a variety of delicious meatless free food.

I received a coupon to purchase a Gardein product and I ended up choosing their Meatless Meatballs. And man did I make the right choice.

I don't cook too often because I am lazy but when I do I occasionally make pasta. Sometimes you get tired of the basic sauce and pasta and miss meatballs though which is why I was super excited about these guys. 

They're super easy to cook whether it is in an oven or microwave. I'm lazy and use the microwave and they came out still pretty great and delicious. They're about a ping pong ball sized. They're made with soy protein and garden grown protein.

They're only 150 calories per 3 meatballs and have 17g of protein!

So they're pretty healthy for you, one could argue probably healthier than the regular meatball. 

Overall, these are delicious and I was very happy with them. I definitely plan on checking out more Gardein products because they have so much to choose from. From sliders to turk'y cutlets to barbecue wings they have almost every type of meat alternative there is. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed!

Alter Eco Chocolate Review!

No comments:

Hope you're all having a great Easter! I'm sure one thing we can all agree on is one of the best things about Easter is chocolate. Chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs, chocolate anything. So what better day then to tell you about another delicious chocolate brand Alter Eco.

The chocolates I received are: 
Velvet Truffles
Black Truffles
Salted Caramel Truffles
Sea Salt Truffles

These truffles are amazing. They're all made with pure coconut oil. They're also fair trade and organic. More or most importantly though is that they are delicious! 
The velvet truffles are dark milk chocolate truffles. The black truffles, salted caramel, and sea salt are all dark chocolate. 
All of these are so delicious. I am a big fan of dark chocolate so I loved most of these, the velvet truffles were okay but I gave them to someone who is a big milk chocolate fan. They almost melt in your mouth the truffles. 
The brand name holds for the chocolates that are fair trade but also the wrappers are highly compostable, too. They're also non-gmo, too.  They are chocolate though so they aren't really low calorie. Good luck limiting yourself to just eating one, I cannot. 
It's hard picking a favorite but I think the salted caramel truffles are definitely up there. They're the perfect amount of chocolate and caramel taste that hits your sweet tooth perfectly. 
Alter Eco has a variety of other great food too, from chocolate bars to quinoa to rice. Their mission is global transformation through ethical relationships with small-scale farmers, and an integral sustainability orientation at every point on the supply chain.

Overall, I really enjoyed these chocolates they're great and have a great cause. Definitely check them out you won't be disappointed!
