 GIVEAWAY ALERT: Newman’s Own Organics Snack Pack – Entry Form

Interesting Facts about Newman’s Own Organics:

  • This company was founded in 1993 when Nell Newman and Peter Meehan were looking for organic snack food and realized the demand for organic snack food was on the rise!
  •  It’s easy to confuse Newman’s Own and Newman’s Own Organics products. NOO started as a division of Newman’s Own in 1993 by Nell Newman and her business partner, Peter Meehan, but became a separate company in early 2001. The two companies have separate lines of products
  • This company started with pretzels and each year they grew by adding other organic snack foods, teas, coffees, vinegars, and even pet food (They are STILL growing and always creating new organic items). By 2001, Newman’s Own Organics became an independent company.
  • All products are chosen typically by personal preference (of Peter and Nell) and based on what sales happen to be booming at the time. Pretzels for example, many of their products were created with their favorite childhood snacks in mine 🙂

Yacon Syrup Review

Disclosure: I must let you know, I was NOT paid to write this review, but I did receive the item at no cost to me for giving my true and HONEST opinion.

Full Name of Product: Yacon Syrup Premium
Type of Product: 100% Pure Raw Organic Syrup
Price of Product: $19.97
Where to purchase:

Yacon Syrup

 

First impression: I was surprised at the size of the bottle. I opened it to smell it- You know me! Hehe. I have never had raw or pure syrup before so I was surprised at the way it smelled. It smells a bit rich, yet sour. Very interesting. The color of the syrup is actually black. It looks like chocolate syrup to me. Hehe.

 

About: Well, this is not thick like normal syrup. I think a reason is because this is also considered a natural sweetener that can be mixed with tea and coffee. You can also take this daily as a dietary supplement. This syrup is made from the yacon plants in Peru.

 

Taste and Texture: My boyfriend and I ate these on waffles. The first taste was a shock to me! This is very sour, in my opinion. My boyfriend found this to taste very sweet and natural. It does leave a pleasant after taste, unlike many sweeteners and syrups do. A little bit goes a very long way, unlike with typical syrup. It tastes a bit like honey and fig to me. While this is not for me, it would be a great alternative for syrups and sweeteners.

 

Final Thoughts: It is good for what it is.

Price Vs. Quality: I think the price is good for 8 fl oz bottle.

How I rate the product on a scale of 1 to 5: I rate this a 3 because it really isn’t for me.

Would I purchase this product for a friend? If they tasted it and liked it, yes.

My June 2014 FAVORITES ★

 

1. PB Crave’s Peanut Butter – Mmm. That’s what I say every time I think of this delicious peanut butter. Everything about it is top quality. The texture is smooth and creamy. The flavor is tasty and memorable. I cannot stop raving about this delicious peanut butter. My mom tried it with me (as seen in the review video) and she is the same as me. She ate a sandwich the day after we did the taste testing video and each day she kept hinting around to wanting more. Hahaha. We love it. My boyfriend doesn’t eat Peanut Butter, but he thought all of them smelled delicious. These peanut butters are unique and delicious, that is why these made it to my June’s Favorite List! The price for these peanut butters is great. You have many options when buying from their site! You can also enter my GIVEAWAY for your chance to win a FULL SIZE pack of all 4 flavors!!

2. Newman’s Own Organics– Talk about great organic snacks! I am NOT exaggerating when I say that these snacks are next to impossible to put down! I began munching on the Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies the other night and I had to literally force myself to put the bag away. Ahh they are so flavorful! My boyfriend finally tried these snacks for the first time last night and he loves them too! His favorite pretzels were the pretzel sticks because he says that they are salted just right. The bags he couldn’t put down though were the Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Oatmeal Chocolate Chips Cookies. He alternated between those two bags, and I mean literally back and forth with each cookie, until he ate too many and I had to take them away! Hahaha. These snacks are so yummy. I am not the biggest fan of sweets, but these cookies were right up my alley. My mom tested these snacks with me (as seen in the review video) and she loved them. She was visiting me for the weekend and I ended up sending the Figs, Cranberries, Ginger Snaps, Sour Apple Licorice, and the Chocolate cream filled chocolate cookies with her because those were all her favorite (She made out like a bandit! She’s spoiled.Hehe). These snacks would make great add on gifts for birthdays, Christmas, or even Valentine’s Day. I know my grandfathers would both devour these snacks within a couple of weeks. The moral of my story is to give these snacks a try. If organic isn’t your thing, these snacks will DEFINITELY change your mind! This is why these made it to my June’s favorite list! The best part is that you can buy these at Amazon and a few other online stores. If you are more of an “I need to see it before I buy it” type of person, you search your area for stores that are carrying them! You can also enter my GIVEAWAY for your chance to win a FULL SIZE 4 pack of my favorite snacks of the ones that I tasted- Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies, High Protein Pretzels, Sour Apple Licorice, and Cranberries.

Skin Secrets Derma Roller

 

First impression: I have to admit, I was absolutely terrified to use this product once I received it. I stared at it for a week deciding whether or not I should roll these rows of needles across my face. I pictured my face bleeding and scabbing up (crazy I know). I have never in my life used a product like this before, nor have I seen one. I finally worked up the courage and gave in.

Before: My primary reason for using this was to help with my acne scars. It is something that I am embarrassed and uncomfortable with, so why not give it a shot. The instructions say to roll the derm lightly across your face. I first tried it on my leg to see how it felt. I followed the instructions which tells you to wash your face twice and then to pat dry. Then I finally rolled it across my cheek… bum bum buuuummmm. My face was fine! Hehe. It didn’t bleed or scab or anything crazy like that. It did not feel like I was rubbing needles across my face because it didn’t hurt in any way. It did sting a bit after I rolled it across my forehead because of the tightness of skin there.

After: Afterward I rubbed moisturizer on it, as the directions suggest. After using this for a few weeks, my face looks incredible! It looks brightened and my scars have lightened. It’s amazing! Also, after using it for a while it does not sting.  Not only does your face LOOK good after using Skin Secret’s derma roller, it FEELS great. It is smooth and soft.

Final Thoughts: I was so afraid to use this product, but now I wish I had used it immediately. It works wonders on your skin. This is a must have in my household!

Price Vs. Quality: The price is amazing for the quality! I am shocked that it is such a low price!

How I rate the product on a scale of 1 to 5: Definitely a 5!

Would I purchase this product for a friend? Heck yes!

Adovia Facial Serum

 

First impression: Well seeing how Adovia has delivered nothing but high quality, impressive products, I was quite excited to receive another item from them. As usual, with my weird self, I opened the serum to smell it. It has a lovely and refreshing smell like all of their products.

Before: As I’ve said before,I have a typically oily face with dark circles under my eyes. I have a few fine lines as well. This product claims to help with skin lifting and to be an oil-free moisturizer.

After: Well people, Adovia has done it again! They delivered a great product with lasting results! Ahh this product is amazing. My skin looks more radiant than ever before. It also leaves my face so smooth and moisturized without it being oily and shiny. It literally works wonders. This is definitely going to be a part of my new beauty routine!
