Carmels 1.fwCarmels 2.fw

I received a BEAUTIFUL sample box that contained all of the sugar free flavors and the best candy jar. I love that the candy jar was plastic so I don’t have to worry about little ones breaking it. I received a total of  four different flavors of the Werther’s Original Sugar Free candy.

  • Werther’s Original Hard Candy Classic Caramel Sugar Free
  • Werther’s Original Caramel Cinnamon Sugar Free
  • Werther’s Original Caramel Apple Sugar Free
  • Werther’s Original Caramel Coffee Sugar Free

 

I made sure to share them with my entire family and was surprised to see that we all LOVED the original flavor but we did enjoy the others. My husband LOVED the Caramel Cinnamon, my daughter enjoyed the Caramel Apple and I really enjoyed the Caramel Coffee. They truly have a flavor for everything, but everyone will love the original as well.

 

 

Caramels 4.fwMy dad was recently diagnosed with Diabetes so I have found myself being more and more cautious about the amount of sugar my family and I take in. Its a scary thing so every little change you can make to help lower your sugar intake is important. Once you take these amazing candies out of the package you would NEVER know that they are sugar free.

Caramels 3.fwIn addition they have the amazing Werther’s Original flavor that we all know and love. I remember as a little girl getting these from my grandma and enjoying them at her house. Now I can share that same amazing flavor and treat with my family and its better for us in the fact that it has no sugar. In addition to no sugar, with so many of us trying to watch our weight and/or lose weight I am excited to say that these amazing treats are only 8 calories each. You can satisfy that sweet tooth and not have the guilt!

Please comment on this post with a story, flavor you love, or experience you have had with Werther’s Original or Wether’s Original Sugar Free.

Having healthy snacks around the house for my family is something that is very important to me. I want us all to be as healthy as possible. So I was excited to be able to try some of the Yummy Granola from Nature’s Hand. Here is a little about where Nature’s Hand is today after being around for over 40 years….. “Today, Nature’s Hand granola continues to evolve.  While the company still offers its Original Vanilla Almond flavor, the recipes have been enhanced to add flavor and texture to the granola while still maintaining the health benefits of the product.  We are proud of what we have developed because it gives us the best of both worlds; our original, foundational granola and our new, enhanced granolas.”

With amazing flavors like Wild Blueberry, Cranberry Delight, Raisin Hazelnut, Cinnamon Apple, French Vanilla and more I am sure you will find a flavor or two that you love. In addition to amazing granola Nature’s Hand also offers some awesome recipes like:

 

 ½ cup butter or margarine
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 cups Nature’s Hand granola

My daughter loves to play with Dolls and Stuffed Animals and is constantly calling them her friends. So I was excited when I had the opportunity to try out the My Friend Huggles. “My Friend Huggles was borne from a mother’s love for her children and the need for a tool to help teach her children to adopt a centered moral compass.

We selected Lily, she is the kind doll. When she arrived it was larger then I expected, the doll is super cute and my daughter quickly became attached to in. She spends a lot of time having Lily sit next to her and they play, eat, color, watch tv and so much more. She even tells Lily that its nap time.

 

These amazing dolls are soft so that your little one can snuggle and nap with there BFF but they are sturdy enough to sit and enjoy lunch, games, coloring and more. I loved that the doll has a tag asking you to place your name on her heart so you will always be best friends, so you will place your child’s name on the heart and this is a written as a commitment of  friendship of the doll.

Lily is adorable, and has big beautiful green eyes, golden yarn hair, dressed as a ballerina and ready to be a kind best friend. Again I can not express how attached my daughter is to this amazing doll.

Enstrom’s Family dates back to 1919 in the candy industry, and is still going strong today. “Throughout the last 50 years, Enstrom Candies has expanded their product line to include toffee popcorn, truffles and delicious gourmet chocolates.”

I received the most delicious, Almond Toffee with Milk Chocolate. Which is, “all-natural… crafted from a perfect blend…fresh California almonds, sweet cream butter and pure cane sugar, covered in a generous layer of rich chocolate and sprinkled with crushed almonds.” 

The toffee itself is wonderful, has a nice crunch and wonderful taste. The milk chocolate coating is wonderful, thin, but perfect. I also loved the topping over the toffee. I received the one pound box which is $19.95 on their site. I would not recommend this size as its GONE way to fast…. The size I would recommend is the 3 pound or larger. So you have enough to go around.

This would make a great gift this holiday season. They even have some fun recipes that you can use their toffee in that would make for fun cookies at a holiday cookie party or to put out for Santa. With a wide range of products I would strongly recommend checking out their website and facebook page.

My family and I love nachos, chips and salsa/guacamole and really anything to do with Mexican food. So I was jumping up and down when a cooler of Wholly Guacamole & Wholly Salsa arrived at my house.

I personally have not seen it in stores in my area yet. But I can tell you that thanks to this awesome opportunity I am looking for it.

My favorite item in the cooler was the Wholly Guacamole Original, I love Avocados, and the original has just a little extra flavor up and beyond the normal Avocado taste. My husband LOVED the Salas, his favorite (when I asked) was that it was a toss up, he really enjoyed the Hot Salsa (its not too hot) and also enjoyed the Avocado Verde Salsa.

I can not tell you how awesome all the products were in the cooler of goodies I received. I can honestly say this is some of the BEST guacamole that I have ever tried, and I have had some wonderful home made guacamole.
