Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Today is officially the first day of Summer 2013, and school has ended for both my husband and son so let the summer snacking begin!  Small children aren’t the only ones who like to snack during the day, my guys are always in and out of the frig or looking in the pantry trying to find something to eat.  During a recent grocery shopping trip to Giant/Super G, I found a few new snacks that I think will hold them over between meals.

looking to eat

Fruit is always a great snack and I like to have a variety on hand, grapes, cherries, bananas, apples or grapefruit.  I recently began purchasing Mini Sweet Peppers from Sunset Grown which can be eaten raw, in a salad or stuffed with a soft cheese like Laughing Cow. Laughing Cow Lite Creamy Swiss is only 35 calories per wedge and are a great snack with the mini peppers or with a piece of fruit.fruit

Sunset Gourmet Tomatoes are an easy grab-and-go snack and they also add variety to a salad.

Crackers another great snack and these Ritz Crackerfuls are available with Peanut Butter or Cheddar Cheese filled.  There are 6 individually wrapped packs in each box, these are made with real peanut butter and 6g of whole grains which to me makes it a healthy snack.

Jello has made several changes over the years and not just to their standard flavors of Chocolate and Vanilla puddings. They have added new flavors with toppings like this Turtle Sundae, a more grown-up option.  Unfortunately the packaging has also changed from 6 containers per package to 4, and these new flavors contain only 2.

Dole brand, a leader in fruit snacks have recently introduced Fruit Squish’ems!  As you can see these Apple Strawberry fruit pouches aren’t just for tiny toddler’s hands, big teenager hands grab them too!  Made from fresh apples in the USA they are only 60 calories each and also make a great grab and go snack.

A new product by Hormel are these REV Snack Wraps which come in 8 varieties including Pepperoni, Ham & Cheese, Meat Lovers Pizza, Spicy Italian Style, Peppered Turkey, Italian Style Ham and Hot Pepper Ham.  I tried one and felt it needed a little mayo or mustard and could have used a few seconds in the microwave to soften the flatbread.

When waiting for dinner is “just too long” these microwavable Hormel Compleats Cafe Creations fill the bill.  With a variety to choose from including Chicken Chipotle Pasta and Creamy Chicken Carbonara, no one should have to “starve to death” waiting for dinner!

Last but not least are these new Lunchables Uploaded. I hadn’t purchased a Lunchables since my sons were were in Elementary School, but I had a $1.00 off coupon so I decided to give it a try. Included in this package are the ingredients to make a 6-inch sub; a few slices of Oscar Mayer Lean Turkey, and Kraft cheddar cheese, a packet of Kraft fat free mayo, a 6-inch sub bun, a 10 oz bottle of Spring Water, a Kool-Aid Tropical Punch Single pack, a Pringles Snack Stacks Potato Crisps and 2 Hershey’s Kisses, not bad for $2.50!

Sugar and Spring VOXBOX

Saturday morning…Ding Dong ….not fully dressed, hair not done so I stayed partially hidden…hopefully they’ll go away….hearing nothing….peered through the side window to see The Brown Man running quickly down the front yard…he jumped back into his truck and drove away….opened the door slowly looking for the familiar brown box delivery…looked left…then right…then looked down…what the…what is this bright orange box…oh wow…my 1st Influenster VOXBOX!!!

UPS package delivery

Not fully dressed, hair not done…called #2 son to come downstairs quickly...what Ma?…here take this camera and go outside and take a picture...what?...go outside and take a picture of the box on the front step…what is it?...boy, just go out and take a picture…and not too close so you can see our address…what?…take the picture puhleeze (closed the door)…IT’S COLD OUT HERE!

Pic taken now he wants to open it up, grabs the letter opener while I stand aside, heart beating a mile a minute…I’ve read about these boxes but never actually saw one…it was exciting…son slits through the packing tape…lifts the lid and ta-da…this is what “we” got:

Influenster VOXBOX1 003

Colgate mouthwash toothpaste and toothbrush

belVita Breakfast Biscuits and Nectresse

Son is not impressed…“Ma…can I have the biscuits, I’m hungry…next time tell them to send a car to test drive”, and with that off he went.

Inside the VoxBox were the following products:

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture 6.5 oz can

This was by far my favorite product because of the spray-on application which is how I buy my sunscreen.  It was not oily or overpowering in fragrance, also not thick and sticky which can be a problem when putting on clothes immediately after applying lotion.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

Nectresse Natural Sweetener – 40 packets

I don’t use white sugar and don’t particularly like the bitter taste of artificial sweeteners but this was neither.  It’s not raw sugar nor is it an artificial substance, it’s 100% natural fruit extract with zero calories.  I used 1 packet in my coffee and a packet in my Spinach Smoothie this morning and it was really good.  A recipe booklet with a measurement conversion chart was included so I’ll bake something this weekend and post the results next week.

Nectresse

Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes – 20 count box

These towelettes were designed to be used as a quick refresher to remove dirt and oils from face and neck.   I used one after removing my makeup for the night, the smell wasn’t pleasant but Witch Hazel has never been.  It also contains aloe which gave it a cool and refreshing feeling that didn’t dry my skin or leave a residue.  I think these will be good after gardening, doing yard work, or after poolside lounging, I’ll let you know in a few months.

belvita Breakfast Biscuits

My son ate the sample but since I had previously purchased  I knew that I liked them.  I’ve bought the single packs from Walmart as well as the boxes of 5, each contain 4 biscuits per pack.  They are a perfect commuting breakfast because they don’t crumble and fall apart.  A good source of fiber, I especially like the Blueberry flavor and bought a box yesterday from Super G.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, Mouthwash and Toothbrush

I suffer from Periodontal Disease so I am very particular with the products that I use for oral care.  I regularly use a Rotadent Rotary toothbrush at night with a toothpaste for sensitive teeth; a manual toothbrush in the morning as well as for brushing at work.  I also use a mouth rinse but this was the first time using Colgate Optic White Mouthwash.  I immediately knew it contained peroxide by the way it foamed in my mouth, as a kid I used to brush with peroxide and baking soda.  The Optic White Toothpaste was Sparkling Mint, did not have a gritty texture and didn’t irritate my sensitive teeth and gums.  I really like the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush because of the whitening cups, soft bristles, cheek and tongue cleaner.

I am  using all three products together as suggested for whiter teeth in 5 days, I will report my results next week.
