Blue Diamond Vanilla Almond Coconut Almond Breeze Review!

No comments:

I am a big cereal fan, eat it almost every day. My go to milk though is almond milk. Costco sells Almond Breeze in bulk plus it lasts a while, tastes great, and is healthy for you. They have a variety of flavors, too. That's why I was very excited to try their Vanilla Almond Coconut Almond Breeze. This post is sponsored by Almond Breeze Almondmilk

The Vanilla Almond Coconut is a blend of almond milk and coconut milk. It tastes great because the almond has a kind of nutty, not bitter but not sweet taste and the coconut is sweet so the balance is a nice, great flavor. It's great to have with cereal to give it an extra kick. I have a lot of granola based cereal and the taste compliments the cereal so well. Gives it kind of a tropical taste without being super sweet.

Some other great bonuses, aside from the excellent taste is:
Each serving (which is one cup) is only 45 calories too which is far less than regular milk. 
It's made from real almonds and coconuts. 
Has 50% more calcium than milk.
Contains no cholesterol.
It's an excellent source of Vitamin D and E, too.
It's free of: dairy, soy, lactose, cholesterol, peanuts, casein, gluten, eggs, and msg.

Some people that are so used to regular milk worry about the alternatives, but honestly, they are worrying for nothing. They don't taste bad, maybe not as thick as milk but some taste even better. If you're a fan of coconut you will love just coconut milk but if you're not sure definitely try this combo.

Overall, Almond Breeze and their new flavor definitely doesn't disappoint. It's so good and arguably even better than regular milk. Check them out!

Loot Crate "Villains 2" August Review!

No comments:

Hey everyone, it's Loot Crate time! Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box dedicated to all things geeky and gamey. This month's theme is "Villains 2."

This crate included:
- The Joker Wooden Figure
- Carnage 3D Mug
- Captain America Hydra Pin
- Los Pollos Hermanos apron

This was a really cool crate but also I'm not super into the fandoms. Though, this is an example of even though I'm not into the fandoms so much I still love the products. For instance, the apron I had no idea was a "Breaking Bad" reference but it's still a pretty cool apron and you always need an apron in the kitchen for baking and stuff.

The Carnage mug is insanely cool. I'm a fan of the Spider-Man movies but not a die hard or anything so I'm not familiar with Carnage, but it is still big and a really great collector piece. Similar to the Joker wooden figure, I love Joker and this is a really unique and awesome item.

Another fandom I'm not familiar too well is Captain America but I'm guessing Hydra are the bad guys. I think the pin is really cool and perfect for fans.

This crate is the perfect crate filled with items to give your friends, you know? Like I know a few Breaking Bad fans, a few Spider-Man fans, etc. So I definitely plan on giving these as gifts. That's what is great about these subscription boxes you can use them for yourself but also for early Christmas or birthday gifts for friends and family. Though I am not a huge fan of these items I am still really excited to give these to people that I know will LOVE the items.

Overall, this Loot Crate was awesome, one of my favorites in a while, definitely check out the subscription, you won't be disappointed!

Blue Diamond Blueberry and Salted Caramel Almonds Review!

No comments:

You guys know I'm all about the snackies. I've been traveling a lot lately and bringing snacks with me to save money. Blue Diamond Almonds are the perfect treats for this. They have an insanely awesome variety of flavors that just keep getting more unique and more delicious.

I was sent the following flavors:
- Oven Roasted Blueberry Almonds
- Salted Caramel Almonds

I love blueberry everything. It's my favorite fruit and love it in every flavor. But, I have to say, I wasn't a huge fan of the blueberry. They smelled amazing but I think the berry flavor mixed just with a solid almond was just kind of weird to my brain and taste buds. I don't think fruit flavors kind of pair too well with almonds. I thought it was too sweet but the almonds actually contain no artificial flavors or colors, so it does contain natural blueberry flavor. Also it is rich in antioxidant vitamin E and contains 5g of protein per serving.

The Salted Caramel Almonds on the other hand were mind blowing. They are probably now my favorite flavor that I have ever tried from Blue Diamond. The flavor compliments the almonds so well. It's sweet and salty but not too much. The perfect snack, seriously. The can says "irresistible snacking" and it is 100% right because I couldn't stop! These guys have 6 g of protein and also a good source of vitamin E.

Overall, I really enjoyed these flavors they were awesome when you needed to kick your salty craving. Definitely check it out you won't be disappointed! This post was sponsored by Blue Diamond.

Ambronite Review!

No comments:

I always try to eat healthy and stay fit but it can be difficult sometimes. I do love snacking on junk foods. Fortunately there are some pretty awesome ways to get healthy and one of them is Ambronite. Ambronite is a drinkable supermeal that takes hunger away for 4-5 hours. 

The box came with ten packets of Ambronite and the bottle to drink it in. You simply put cold water into the bottle, add the ambronite powder, shake it up, and drink! It's also best to let it sit for two minutes after you shake it.

Let me tell you, this is not the most delicious drink I've ever had. There sometimes is chunks of the powder in the drink so it's not completely smooth. Also it's kind of a weird oath-bitter taste to it. It took me a while to drink the first one down but eventually I got used to it and it tasted okay. Also, it's very healthy for you.

Each pack has 500 calories, 30 grams of protein, 80% vitamin C, 25% vitamin A, 25% calcium, 45% vitamin D, 14 grams of dietary fiber, and so on. Packed with natural goodness and free of artificial nasties, it tastes of oats and fresh nuts with a hint of Nordic herbs and berries. The pure, neutral taste mixes well with water, juices and your favorite fruit. It's made with stuff like organic whole grain oats, organic coconut, organic apple, organic spinach, etc. It's vegan, no GMO's, no artificial flavorings or added sugars. It's basically one full meal in a bottle. 

This is perfect for people that work a lot at offices and hardly have time to eat right and work out but want to try to. This will boost your productivity and get you feeling way better.

Overall, while the flavor is difficult to get used to, it is way better than scarfing down a McDonalds burger or something when you're in a rush but still pretty hungry.

Blue Diamonds Artisan Nut Thins Review!

No comments:

Hey guys! More snacks woo! You may already be familiar with Artisan Nut Thins, they're made by Blue Diamond and are some delicious crackers that are perfect for dipping. I received these two products from Blue Diamond and this post is sponsored by them but these opinions are 100% my own.

I  received the following two boxes:
- Flax Seeds
- Multi-Seeds

Both of these were just so delicious. There's really not much of a huge flavor difference, I'd say the multi-seed one has more flavor, maybe tastes a little more salty which is what I like. While the flax seeds tastes a little more plan. Either way they're perfect to dip into your favorite humus or cheese or anything basically.


All crackers contains 3g of protein, no cholesterol, 130 calories per serving, and no wheat or gluten. The flax seed crackers contain 400mg of ALA Omega-3. The sesame seeds contain 3g of fiber. The multi-seeds contain 21g of whole grains.

Flax Seed

In all honesty though I ate these mostly solo just because I never really buy dip (except hummus but that was just finished yesterday). They're great but just try not to eat them out of the box, try to limit yourself portion-wise or else these babies will be gone as soon as you open the box. It has happened to me many times so now I just get a little bowl and put them in it once that's empty it's DONE no more. Though they are a great healthy alternative to other crackers.

Overall, I was very impressed with these nut thins, they're so delicious. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed!
