ZonePerfect® Greek Yogurt Bars

Saturday, September 28, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free ZonePerfect® Greek Yogurt Bar from Influenster to try and review.

With four kids, life can be so busy that I don't have time to sit down and eat a full meal.  That's why I love having foods on hand that I can just grab and take with me to eat on the go.  Cereal and nutrition bars work great for this.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try ZonePerfect Greek Yogurt Bars.  These nutrition bars provide you with the protein you need to keep going, without compromising on taste.  Each ZonePerfect Greek Yogurt Bar provides 12 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and are made with Greek yogurt.  It's available in three great flavors:
  • Greek Yogurt Chocolate
  • Greek Yogurt Raspberry
  • Greek Yogurt Vanilla Berry

Lunchables Jr Review

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received two packages of Lunchables Jr from Crowdtap to try and review.

My kids love to snack.  It's like they're ALWAYS hungry.  They're always asking for something to eat.  One of the first phrases my youngest son learned to say was "My hungry."

My husband and I almost always pack snacks for the kids whenever we go on a car trip because one (or all) of our kids is inevitably going to get hungry.  We usually pack snacks in little baggies and put them in a cooler or a plastic shopping bag.  The snacks we pack are usually the same few things: raisins, cereal, Goldfish crackers (or something similar), grapes and applesauce pouches.

Now, Lunchables has come out with a new line of snacks that combines some of these kid favorites into cute little packages that you can take with you on-the-go.  They come in four different varieties with cute names and are currently available exclusively at Walmart:
  • Ants On A Log - Peanut Butter, Sun-Maid Raisins, Honey Graham Sticks
  • Teddy Bear Picnic - Peanut Butter, Dried Apple Pieces, Teddy Grahams Honey Graham Snacks
  • Very Beary Crunch - Ritz Bits Cheese Cracker Sandwiches, Strawberry Flavored Dried Apple Pieces, Teddy Grahams Honey Graham Snacks
  • Blueberry Bonanza - Cheez-It Baked Snack Crackers, Blueberry Flavored Dried Apple Pieces, Mini Nilla Wafers

KRE-O Cityville Invasion Building Sets

Friday, September 13, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free KRE-O Cityville Invasion Building Set from BzzAgent to try and review.

My kids love building toys.  We have a ton of wooden and LEGO blocks all around the house.  But, we had never used the KRE-O building sets before.  So, I jumped at the chance to give them a try!  My kids had never heard of KRE-O, but they were pretty excited to be getting a set.

I received a pretty nice BzzKit from BzzAgent.  It included:
  • A KRE-O Cityville Invasion Marina Madness Building Set
  • Five Cityville Invasion samples
  • Coupons to pass along towards the purchase of a KRE-O Cityville Invasion building set

All You Back To School Special Issue 2013

Monday, September 9, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free issue of All You Magazine from Crowdtap to facilitate this review.

It's a new school year.  My kids have been back now for a couple weeks.  The weeks preceding the first day of class was a little chaotic.  With the new baby, we were pretty late in getting the kids ready for the new school year.  We ended up buying their backpacks and school supplies the day before school started!  It would have been great to have something to help me get organized and better prepared for the first day of school.

All You Magazine comes to the rescue!  Each year, the magazine releases a special Back To School issue several weeks before school starts to help you start the new school year on the right foot.

This year's issue features plenty of helpful articles, including:
  • Savings tips on everything you need for the school year, including clothes, electronics and supplies
  • A collection of cool school supplies and gear for your kids, from kindergarten to high school
  • Ways to raise a lifelong reader
  • A selection of great book for kids of every age
  • And 26 recipes the whole family will love, from school lunches to weeknight meals that are on the table in 20 minutes or less.

The Good Life VoxBox from Influenster Overview

Sunday, September 1, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  As a member of Influenster, I was chosen to receive a set of several items to try and review.  All opinions are my own.

Once again, I was chosen to receive a VoxBox from Influenster.  If you're unfamiliar with Influenster, it's a community of members who are sent products to try and review.  Members share their experiences and complete Brand Challenges, for a chance to earn rewards.  The more you share, the more opportunities you have to earn rewards.

This time, I was sent The Good Life VoxBox.  This box celebrates the everyday pursuit of health and happiness.  The Good Life VoxBox featured a couple brands that I was somewhat familiar with and others that were new to me.  I haven't actually tried any of the products before and am excited to try them out.  The package contained:
  • New-Skin Liquid Bandage - I'm not familiar at all with this brand or liquid bandages, in general.  It's supposed to provide good coverage and protection for large cuts and scrapes, as well as help to prevent blisters.  This sounds like it would be good for my kids, who are always getting hurt when they play outside, as well as my husband, since he's an avid runner.
  • ZonePerfect Greek Yogurt Bars - I've heard of the ZonePerfect brand, but have no tried any of their bars.  I was sent the Greek Yogurt Raspberry flavor.  It sounds good and it provides a good amount of fiber and protein!
  • UrgentRx Fast Powders - I've heard of these but have never really seen them in stores or tried them out.  I received the Ache & Pain variety.  This would be great to keep in my purse, as opposed to carrying around a bottle of pain reliever!  This is so much more compact and portable.
  • The Vitamin Shoppe Garcinia Cambogia - I've never heard of this supplement before.  It's supposed to help with weight management and appetite control.  This could be helpful.  I had a baby three months ago and still working on losing the weight.  Maybe this will help with my late night snacking!
  • Nonni's THINaddictives - These look good.  Sadly, I won't be able to eat it since it has almonds and I'm allergic... But, luckily, my husband can eat it and let me know how it is! 

I'll be posting reviews in the next week or so.  Check back to see what I thought of them!
