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!

Bad Hair Days Stink but Aflac Doesn't! #SalonDuck #ConnectAflac #ad

This post is sponsored by Aflac. I was compensated for writing it, but all the opinions are 100% mine.

Being a girl can be annoying, especially when you wake up in the morning and look like this.

Bad hair days can be a nuisance, fortunately they can be easy to get rid of if you're pretty used to them like I am. Here's what I usually do:

1. Just angrily brush the crap out of it. Sure it may take awhile and may be a bit painful but the result will be great. If that still doesn't work and there's like a bump or a weird curl then...

2. Straighten it! I'm not big into doing my hair but I will straighten it from time to time to make it look a little nice. Get rid of those kinks and bam. When neither of these work, say your hair is looking kind of grimey and oily then just...

3. Take a shower man! You dirty! Then brush it and straighten it and you'll be looking A+++ by no time.

Speaking of hairstyles though, have you seen that "Duck Salon" commercial? Aflac's new “Duck Salon” commercial continues to share the Aflac Duck’s story of trying his hand – er, wing – at new things: this time hairstyling.

Pretty funny, right? Prove that you can't do everything you know? He (the duck, Aflac) is not the best hairstyler but he is the best at One Day Pay. I know what you're thinking: What's that?

One Day Pay is Aflac’s way of making sure eligible claims get processed and approved the same day they’re submitted, so policyholders can get paid in just a day.

One Day pay helps by:
 - When a policyholder gets sick or hurt, Aflac pays cash benefits fast – now in as little as ONE business day with the company’s new One Day Pay℠ promise.
- One Day Pay℠ is Aflac’s way of making sure eligible claims get processed and approved the same day they’re submitted, so policyholders can get paid in just a day. Aflac is built to process and pay – not to deny and delay – to help your life stay on track.
- A lot of insurance companies talk about how much money they’ll save policyholders on premiums, but people buy insurance to get paid when they need to file a claim. Aflac understands that claims matter and that it’s important to be there for their policyholders when they need it most.

So just like when your hair is messed up in the morning and you fix it that day, that's how One Day Pay works.

Pasta Chips Reviews!

No comments:

Hey everyone! You guys know I am all about snacking. I love trying out new and delicious snacks to munch on while traveling or just hanging out and watching television. The latest new found love? Pasta Chips! Pasta Chips are a healthy take on a classic recipe and chips that are actually made from pasta!

Yup, they're made from baked, fresh pasta. But they're still a great healthy option that other flavored chips you could be munching on. For instance, they have 20% less fat that pita chips, they're vegan, and non-GMO certified. 

I received their Garlic Olive Oil chips and honestly, I CAN'T STOP EATING THEM.

Seriously, I have leftovers in the fridge I should be killing, but instead I've just been diving into these. They're addictive. They remind me of those garlic nots or balls you get restaurants but in chip form. They're not super garlic-y either. They're seasoned very well but won't leave your hands feeling too oily or greasy. 

They also have only 120 calories per service which is about 1oz, not sure how many chips that is but there's about 5 in a bag. 

Overall, these snacks were delicious! Definitely check them out you won't be disappointed.

Loot Crate July Heroes 2 Review!

No comments:

Loot Crate is back this month! Loot Crate is pretty much one of my favorite, if not my favorite subscription box that I receive every month. Loot Crate has everything geeky and awesome. This month's theme is "Heroes 2."

This crate consisted of:
- Legend of Zelda Sweatband
- Wonder Woman Poster
- Batman Multi-Tool Keychain
- Star Trek Airfreshener
- TV Series Batman Q-Pop Figure
- The League of Regrettable Superheroes Book

I was a big fan of this crate it had such an awesome variety. I'm not a big superhero fan but the ones I am fans of I am HUGE fans. The main superhero though that I'm a fan of is Batman so, as you can tell, this crate was bomb.

My favorite thing was the Batman multi-tool keychain. This keychain is not only a bottle opener but also a flathead screwdriver and crosshead screwdriver. It also fits perfectly on your keychain with your house keys or whatever and, for a girl, seems like a really great think to hold in your hands to protect yourself when you're walking down a dark street at night.

I loved the little Q-Pop figure because I was a huge 60's Batman fan growing up. I don't plan on taking this little guy out of the box though, just want to keep it and cherish it forever. It does have a little sign it can hold that says "Ka-Pow!" though which is really cool.

I'm not a huge Wonder Woman fan but as a girl you have to at least like her a little even if you're somewhat unfamiliar with her. I love how they molded her into a Rosie the Riveter for heroes. I definitely plan on hanging this up in my room. I wasn't very excited about Batman vs Superman but now I am just to see my homegirl Wonder Woman.

Not a huge fan of Zelda, but have a few friends that are so I definitely plan on giving this wristband as a little gift to someone. Same with the Star Trek air freshener (I'm Team Star Wars).

Lastly, the book is very, very cool even for a non-comic fan. It tells of a bunch of comic book superheroes that you've probably never met because their "lives" didn't live very long. The strangest superheroes are included in here like Lady Satan and Bee Man. I definitely plan on reading this but I also plan on giving it to my Uncle when I'm done because he is OBSESSED with comics and would get a real kick out of this.

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

Del Taco New Fresco Bowls and Fresh Avocado Review!

No comments:

I have a serious guilty pleasure with Del Taco. Guess it isn't guilty since I'm openly admitting it. It's great though, I prefer it to Taco Bell because I feel like it has more variety. Even now with their new fresco bowls. 

The new menu items include:
Pollo Asada Avocado Bowl – quality grilled chicken, fresh sliced avocado, seasoned black beans, fresca lime rice, handmade pico de gallo salsa and fresh diced onions.

Green Chile Chicken Avocado Bowl – quality grilled chicken, fresh sliced avocado, seasoned black beans, fresca lime rice, handmade pico de gallo salsa and fresh diced onions.

Avocado Veggie Bowl – loaded with fresh sliced avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, seasoned black beans, fresh diced onions and fresca lime rice.

I tried their avocado veggie bowl because I'm vegetarian (pesctarian technically, that's why I love DT because of their fish and shrimp tacos). I loved it. It's difficult finding healthy food choices when you lead a busy life so that's why some people get lazy and eat a lot of fast food. At least Del Taco is taking steps into adding healthier selections to their menu like these bowls.

Also now, Add Fresh Avocado to Any Item: One or three slices of fresh Hass avocado. One slice priced at 30 cents, three slices for 90 cents. Del Taco’s partnership with the California Avocado Commission is a part of the company’s UnFreshing Believable campaign designed to spotlight its dedication to providing quality, delicious, made-to-order menu items with freshly-prepared ingredients at an unbelievable price.

The veggie bowl was delicious, it had everything that I love: avocados, black beans, and delicious lime rice that was just a great kick of flavor. This bowl is 460 calories which is a little hefty but considering it has good fats like avocados and protein like black beans I'd say it's one of the better decisions to make at Del Taco and for $4 you really can't go wrong.

Overall, I loved this bowl and definitely plan on getting more in the future. Try it out you won't be disappointed!
