Skinny Pop: Black Pepper Popcorn Review!

Image
I've tried Skinny Pop before in an earlier review and absolutely loved their popcorn! It's full of flavor and best of all it's guilt free which is great it tastes like movie theater popcorn without all the butter how awesome is that!? 
So when I stumbled upon their new flavor black pepper on the web I just knew I had to see if I could do a review featuring their black pepper pop corn!
I was beyond ecstatic when I received the black pepper popcorn I couldn't wait to try it to see how it differs from their other popcorn. 
Peppery verdict:
I packed some to go along with my lunch and had to nibble on a piece and first thought that occurred to me was that it was very good and doesn't have an overwhelming peppery taste at all. It's lightly peppered and is a great snack to have when watching a movie!

I was beyond excited to pick some items for review from Dutch Country Pantry and couldn't wait to try them out! Especially when I found out that their products are not only healthy but delicious! 
Chocolate fudge:
Great chocolate flavor and super delicious! Loved the texture of it because you could spread it on some delicious biscotti for an added touch or even spread on brownies as a frosting!
Apple snitz:
I love fruit especially apples and fall is right around the corner!  I've tried something similar before and fell in love with them great apple flavor and what's great about these luscious apple pieces is that you can add them to a nice hot steaming bowl of oatmeal or even yogurt with some raisins!
Birch beer:
I loved birch beer soda as a kid and sipping on it reminded me of my childhood, great flavor!

Perky Jerky Review!

I was sent some jerky for review by Perky Jerky and I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into them.
I've tried teriyaki before and loved it but can be tough to chew especially when on those sticks at your favorite Chinese food restaurant, well Perky Jerky is nothing like that at all!
They are meaty, full of flavor and bite sized strips perfect for snacking! 
Turkey Jerky: Bursting with turkey flavor and not too salty. Loved that it wasn't way too chewy either like some other jerky brands can be.
Beef jerky:
A little peppery with delicious sweet beef flavor.
You could also pair it with a slice of cheese or even dice them up into small pieces and toss them on a salad! Jerky facts:
High in protein Low in fat Low in calories No nitrates No preservatives All natural And Low carb
Great post workout snack anytime of day to give you the boost you need!

Uncle Matt's Organic orange juice review!

Image
What goes better with a bagel and some fruit for breakfast than some deliciously refreshing orange juice?
Works perfectly with a side of eggs, oatmeal or some yogurt and fruit or you can chop up some fruit and toss in some yogurt and add a splash of whatever juice you prefer into the blender for a smoothie!
I've had many orange juices through out my life and some I wasn't to keen on due to high sugar, the taste or too pulpy.
Uncle Matt's organic juice company makes all natural juices that are healthier and kids are sure to love! 
I have seen them in stores and just had to try them out for myself especially their orange juice.
I was sent some coupons for review to pick some juices of my choosing and came across the orange juice at Belmont fruits market and couldn't wait to try it! 
Juicy details:
I absolutely loved the taste it wasn't too sugary or pulpy at all and gives me just the boost I need!

Martinez Salsa Review!

Image
In Mexico's Yucatan peninsula great grandmother Martinez concocted authentic salsa five generations ago and well known for the fire roasted salsa which was only sold in Mexico until now!
I've tried my fair share of salsa before but some were either too runny, too peppery or just didn't taste good to me until now that is because this salsa from Martinez salsa is the best ever I've tried!
I was sent some of their mouth watering salsa for review and will tell you about each one of them as soon as I try each one of them!
You can enjoy fire roasted salsa, mild and peach all in the comfort of your own home today!
Healthy facts: All natural Corn free Gluten free  Milk free 0 grams trans fat MSG free
Works great on: Chips Tacos Chicken Burritos Fish Veggies And more!
Peach salsa: Ever since I've eaten at this burrito place called boloco I've been obsessed with their dish called the Mexican which features rice, beans, cheese, grilled chicken, salsa and guacamole on it.
Thought to myself hey…

Image
Look who's back for another review on the blog!
Quest Protein has a new flavor which is white chocolate raspberry and I just had to try it!
You've probably seen my other review of their protein bars and I absolutely love them!
They are full of protein and give me just what my body needs after an intense workout.
It's also great for a quick and easy snack that you can just put into your bag to tag along with you.
I like that these bars aren't overload with sugar that we just don't need and also it keeps me energized to get through the day.
I haven't tried any bars of theirs that I didn't like I loved them all and couldn't wait to give their new flavor a try when they sent me a box for review!
White chocolate raspberry: 
Wow the taste was so delicious reminded me of an unhealthy cheesecake or something like it but so much better. 
I couldn't stop nibbling on it while working today it was just that good!

Quest Protein Peanut Butter Cups Review

Image
I've done a review before on Quest Protein products such as their delicious protein bars which are great for a quick workout snack to nourish your body.
I absolutely love their bars and freaked when I find out that they have peanut butter cups and just knew that I had to give them a try because like hello I love chocolate and what's better with chocolate than nutty peanut butter?!
I was super psyched when they showed up for review and couldn't wait to give them a try to see how they compare to any other brand of peanut butter cups I've tried.
When they showed up they felt squishy like they were a bit melted so I popped them in the fridge.
So when it came time to munching on one I noticed just as I thought they had melted which to me is fine because I like them kept cold to serve it up with a nice cold glass of milk.
Let me just tell you they are so delicious!
They don't even compare to any other brands I've tried because they are that good!
They offer a whopping total…

Louise's Foods Chia Granola Review and Giveaway!

Image
All those years we've been thinking that most granola and cereal have been healthy the manufacturers mislead us by adding in extra sugars and the cheapest of ingredients that our bodies don't need it, just read the labels on the back of the packages!
Half of those names we can't even pronounce, it makes me think what have I been eating all of these years.
With that in mind I'm on a mission to eat healthier foods and it's worked in weight loss!
When eating granola's I look for all natural ingredients and the taste is a major factor because I won't eat it if I don't like it, and I hardly ever find something I don't like!

This granola right here is out of bounds delicious.  Louise's Foods sent me an email to review  their granola and this lovely package arrived on my doorstep! It's packed with nutrients such as chia seeds, raisins, almonds, pumpkin seeds and coconut flakes which I love!
I couldn't wait to try it!
Whenever I see raisins in granola…

I've tried chocolate covered bananas in a previous review earlier and absolutely loved them!
So when I came across their website and saw these babies I knew I had to try them, they sent me a package of their chocolate banana bites and chewy banana bites for review!
Chocolate Covered Banana Bites:
They are delicious and such a great snack to bring to the movies instead of eating all that unwanted junk food!

Image
As the Summer comes to an end and the kids start to go back to school you know what that means right?
Fall is right around the corner which is the best time of the year because the leaves from the trees change pretty colors and start to fall. 
Which is also the best time of the year for my favorite past time which is apple picking!
Just think of the recipes you can dish up with all of the apples that you've picked from apple pie to apple butter, even you guess it apple sauce!

Three Twins Ice Cream Review

Image
During the Summer months sometimes you just need to cool down with a sweet cold treat and what better way to cool off with some ice cream!
Whether it's chocolaty or fruity I'm a huge fan of ice cream. As a kid I would wait for the sound of the bell of the ice cream man's truck and rush out the door with the other kids in the neighborhood with money just waiting for something sweet to eat to cool down!
To this day I love ice cream whether it's on a cone or in a dish with some sliced up fruit or sprinkles or even blended up as a milk shake!
OK, I'm getting totally ahead of myself over here, LOL!
Three Twins Ice Cream company has been making delicious ice cream since 2005 in Northern California using organic ingredients that taste oh so good!
I am proud to say I got to try their ice cream, they sent me some coupons for review and I couldn't wait to choose the flavors I wanted to test out.
