Trop50- Half the Sugar, Double the Reward.


I love the Tropicana's line of Trop50 juices.  They have half the calories as regular Orange Juice and the have no artificial sweeteners.  It is sweetened with Stevia extracts which have been used as natural sweeteners and herbal remedies for hundreds of years.

Spice Rack Chocolates Tea Time Collection Review and Giveaway



A while back an old high school friend told me about this chocolate company that is near the shop he owns in Virginia.  He sent me their website and told me I should check out their tea infused chocolates.  I went to their website and looked around and new I should try their chocolates.  If it has tea and chocolate it has to be good.  As luck would have the good folks at Spice Rack Chocolates were kind enough to send me a box of their Tea Time collection. They use 54% cocoa dark chocolate that mixes very well with the teas that are infused in them. 


Flavors included in their Tea collection - Three color coded pieces of each flavor.

  • White—Strawberry Tingle. Memories of sweet succulent spring strawberries abound to form a perfect harmony between rooibos tea, strawberries and chocolate.
  •  Pink—Cochin Masala Chai. South Indian masala chai with cardamom notes peeking out from lively ginger. 
  •  Green—Cherry Rose. A combination of cherry, roses and rooibos tea with hints of caramel. 
  •  Purple—Versailles Lavender. French super blue lavender transports a floral harvest in Provence to a simply intoxicating Earl Grey creating a delightful synergy of two cultures. 
  •  Yellow—Orange Earl Grey. English Earl Grey tea accented with piquant orange. The combination of bright citrus and Earl Grey tea yields a wonderfully flavorful chocolate.
All of the chocolates are very good but the Yellow was favorite with the Earl Grey tea. I must add they also go great with a nice cup of tea.  If you are looking for a whole new experience with chocolate I highly recommend checking out Spice Rack Chocolates.

Thanks to Spice Rack Chocolates  I am able to giveaway a box of the their Tea Time Collection chocolates which is a $24,99 value.  To enter visit Spice Rack Chocolates and come back and comment about what other collection sounds good to you.

Banquet Says "Thanks a Million"



I know frozen meals  are not always the healthiest option for my family but when I need something quick and simple I have often found Banquet to come in handy.  Even better is that my family enjoys their products and I know that they will eat them. My kids looks forward to those nights when they can have a pot pie.

For nights when things are very hectic and busy it helps to have some great rescue meals on hand, like Banquet frozen entrĂ©es.  Dinner that my whole family will enjoy is on the table in minutes. Banquet offers more than enough single-serve dinner varieties so each family member is covered – whether you have kids who are picky eaters and only like Macaroni & Cheese or Chicken Fingers, or adults who prefer more sophisticated options like Chicken Pasta Marinara, Sweet and Sour Chicken or Creamy Pasta Carbonara.

As a way of saying "Thanks a Million" to their loyal customers over all these years, Banquet is giving away more than $1 million worth of redeemable cash prizes that started February and runs through April. You should look for Banquet frozen dinner meals with the "Thanks a Million" logo on the box. Each of these specially-marked packages will contain a special game piece, either one of over 16,000 redeemable cash prizes worth anywhere from $10 to $100,000, or a Banquet coupon. What's better than that? A quick dinner on the table in minutes and a chance to find the equivalent of the "Willy Wonka" golden ticket!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Banquet and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate
