I was invited to try Kroger's The Truly Awesome™ Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies through BzzAgent. I was excited to try these cookies, because I love Kroger products. My bzzkit arrived a couple days ago. I was so happy to find out that these cookies contain no preservatives or artificial flavorings. They are made with the same ingredients that I would use to bake cookies in my own home.
The cookies are a pretty good size and were just introduced to Kroger stores earlier this year. There are eight large cookies per pack and retail for $2.79. You can find them exclusively at Kroger, Fred Meyer, and Ralphs stores.
I noticed on the back of the box it mentioned that if you warm the cookies first for a few seconds in the microwave they would taste like fresh oven baked cookies. I decided to put this to the test and I found that they really do taste like a fresh baked cookie when warmed first! These cookies are sure to please your family. Just look at the smile on my sons face as he enjoyed his cookies!
I was invited to join the Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin campaign for BzzAgent. I absolutely am in love with these products. I received a facial cleanser and a moisturizer. The facial cleanser is my favorite. It is a cream cleanser, which I love. It leaves my skin feeling soft, clean, and hydrated. It takes off makeup, including eye makeup,easily. The moisturizer leaves skin feeling hydrated and protected without being greasy.
I have very sensitive skin, even a lot of natural products irritate my skin. Both the cleanser and the moisturizer are very gentle on sensitive skin. Cotton extract is added to this line of products to soften skin. Rice extract and aloe are added to moisturize and soothe. This sensitive skin line also carries an eye cream and a night cream, which I can't wait to try. You can find Burt's Bees products at mass retailers (such as, Wal-mart and Target), drug stores, grocery stores, and natural health food stores nationwide. Learn more about this line of products on their facebook page:facebook.com/burtsbees or here:http://www.burtsbees.com/t/why-go-natural.html
Notice my lonely drink on the left? It is missing something. It is missing fizz. The drink in the photo is grape Kool Aid made with Stevia instead of sugar. It could be enhanced by adding carbonation. I noticed on BzzAgent that the daily buzz on Friday is going to be a Sodastream soda making machine. With this machine you can take any ordinary drink and add carbonation. You can see one here: http://www.sodastreamusa.com/product_info.aspx I'm really hoping that I will get picked for this campaign because I LOVE SODA!!! But, I also carefully watch what I eat. I try not to drink soda very often because of the high amounts of sugar and calories, and I know they just aren't good for my body. I would love to try a Sodastream machine because my options for creating a healthy soda would be endless.
Here are some things that I currently drink and would love to try carbonated:
Kool Aid sweetened with Stevia= 0 calories
Lemonade sweetened with Stevia or Xylitol = 0-30 calories
Store bought light cranberry juice = 40 calories per cup
Yerba Mate tea mixed with cranberry juice= 50 calories per cup
Iced herbal teas sweetened with Stevia= 0 calories
What would you use the Sodastream for? I would love to hear your ideas and maybe try them if I'm chosen.
