Kashi Hummus Crisps Review

Free from BzzAgent

kashiBefore even tasting these I noticed one big thing. The difference in nutrition. With Kashi Hummus Chips you get 27 chips per serving that only have 120 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and 180 mg of sodium. With my regular Sea Salt & Vinegar potato chips you get 14 chipsĀ  per serving that have 150 calories, 8 grams of fat and 285 mg of sodium. Twice the amount of crisps per serving and it is still healthier.

None of that matters if the chips don’t taste good though. These were very light and airy. They were crispy but not too thick. They had nice flavoring but it was a little uneven. Some chips were much more seasoned than others. We tried them with two different kinds of dip and they didn’t break under pressure. My children all liked them quite well too.

I received the Sea Salt and Olive Oil Kashi Hummus Crisps but I suspect I would have liked the Caramelized Onion flavor much more. I will be trying that flavor soon. These would be a great snack for anyone, especially those of us who are trying to eat healthier without giving up our snacks.

Hormel Rev Wraps

Free from BzzAgentrevWhen I think of the Hormel brand I think of meat and chili. It is one of those brands that most of us are familiar with. I had a chance to try Hormel Rev Wraps via BzzAgent.

Rev

Each Rev Wrap has at least 15 grams of protein with a touch of carbohydrates to keep your energy level up. These convenient snacks come in 12 different flavors from Turkey & Cheese to Pepperoni Pizza. We chose Meat Lover’sĀ  Pizza which includes pepperoni, spicy salami, genoa salami, and mozzarella cheese. It was all wrapped up in what they call a “soft white wrap”. It is similar to a tortilla but a little thicker. We decided to try it with some pizza sauce for dipping.

RevWhat we liked:

  • Good quality meat and cheese
  • Convenient
  • Portable
  • Great source of protein without a large portion size
  • Low sugar content
  • Lots of flavor choices

What we didn’t like:

  • A little pricey for what you get
  • The soft white wrap was a little too thick
  • The soft white wrap got a little soggy in the fridge overnight

Conclusion: These are definitely teenager food due to being hand held and loaded with meat. These are great for on the go days because they are tasty, readily available and filling. They would be perfect for sporting events, camping, going to the beach or anywhere else you would have a cooler and not a lot of space. I probably wouldn’t buy them for home use because they are very easy to make. As a mother of 4 who is very budget conscious, I could also make them for much cheaper.

Covergirl Blast Flipsticks Photos and Review

I was chosen by BzzAgent to do the Covergirl blastflipstick campaign. I get to try beautiful products in exchange for my honest opinion. I’ve never been one to hold that back lol. Anyway, here is what I received:

The box it all came in.

All 3 of the flipsticks.

Covergirl Blastflipstick in Stunner. These are a gorgeous bold orange set. The dark orange serves as a gorgeous base to the more shimmery light golden orange. This would be a perfect summer or fall color.

Covergirl Blastflipstick in Minx. Honestly when I pulled this one out of the box and saw that super dark brown I cringed. I figured I would pass it on to one of my friends with darker skin tones. Once I swatched it along with the lighter shade I realized that it wasn’t as dark as I previously thought. It could be worn by most skin tones, especially in fall. This one took me by surprise for sure.

Covergirl Blastflipstick in Vixen. This is a gorgeous pink combo that reminds me of cotton candy. It is definitely the most traditional of the three and very girlie. This is the one I grabbed at first when I opened the box. I know I don’t need any more pinks but this is so pretty I just adore it. Definitely my favorite one.

The bottom line is that these are great colors with a good formula so I think people will love them. There are quite a few more colors for sale in your local superstore or drugstore.

Smartfood Selects Photo and Review

I just tried some of the new Smartfood Selects that I received from BzzAgent. Here is what I tried:

This is the Smartfood Select Buffalo Cheddar Popcorn. This are loaded with seasoning and nice and crunchy. I am not a big fan of buffalo flavored anything but these were pretty good. They were a bit spicy and one of my daughters ran for water. I don’t mind a little heat so I enjoyed them. Would I purchase them again? Maybe, I am on the fence with these.

These are the Smartfood Selects Feta Herb Hummus Popped Chips and Garlic Tomato Basil Hummus Popped Chips. These were super tasty! The Feta Herb flavor were my favorite item of these three. They were light, airy, crispy and had amazing flavor. They weren’t heavy or greasy. I have already purchased more of these so yes I loved them. The Garlic Tomato flavor had a bit of a pizza taste to me. The kids really loved both flavors.

Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist and Oil Diffuser

I purchased the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser in Fuji Apple and Cardamom Spice and it smells amazing. It really is perfect for fall. It’s not overpowering or too sweet like some scents are. We put it in our bedroom to give it a nice soothing ambiance. It looks very pretty and not plain or unattractive. I really like that it doesn’t require a plugin or batteries. It seems to be emitting quite a bit of scent despite the fact that it isn’t plugged in. I would definitely purchase again.

I purchased the Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist in Cotton & Italian Mandarin. I was honestly quite hesitant at purchasing this scent because it sounded sort of like an odd mix. I don’t really smell mandarin in it at all. It smells like super clean clothes. It is a nice comforting smell and not to overpowering. The sprayer got clogged once but was easily unclogged by running the tip under warm water. It’s a great item to have on hand.

All in all both were great products but I will definitely be purchasing the Oil Diffuser again.

Unreal Candy

I am a member of BzzAgent. I recently got to try Unreal Candy from one of their campaigns.

This candy has no hydrogenated oils, no corn syrup, no artificial colors or flavors. So I was mentally preparing myself for some “healthy” candy that I figured would be… *ahem*… gross. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I knew what everything was on the ingredients list. Good start. But how do they taste?

These didn’t even make it home hence the empty package.

Well first off were the Unreal #54, the Chocolate Candy Shell Peanuts. These didn’t even make it home from the store. I was pleasantly surprised and how yummy they were. Nice crispy outside, no funny aftertastes, and good nut/chocolate ratio. My 4 kids tried them as well and they all really liked them. I would definitely purchase these again.

Now for the #77 Peanut Butter Cups. I live in a desert so they melted slightly on the way. I was only so so about these. They looked great. They were nice and soft with good texture and they tasted ok. They left a bit of an aftertaste in my mouth. I let the kids taste these as well and they said the same thing. They were ok but not spectacular.


Finally onto the #8 Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat bar. This was amazing. I mean REALLY good. I posted a picture of the side view of this so you can see just how yummy they look. I am a huge fan of a bar like this (that shall remain unnamed) and this was just like it. Perfect texture, flavor, and had a great crunchiness mixed with smoothness.

All in all I was quite pleased with these products and I would purchase 2 out of 3 of them again. Great taste with much less sugar, fat plus higher fiber and protein. What’s not to like?!
