LoveBean Fudge Review

Lovebean is in the business of pure and potent chocolate and other High-Grade Vegan and Paleo treats. We use only Organic ingredients in our spreads and we always sweeten with delicious low-glycemic Coconut Nectar. We spend lots of extra dough on the best ingredients because we want our products to make you feel amazing! Our chocolate spreads are Virgin Coconut Oil-based so not only are they a healthier option to your typical chocolate spreads and bars, but this allows the texture to vary from thick and creamy when cooler to completely liquid and perfect for dipping when warmer (or for making a magic shell on ice cream!!). You've never had so much fun with chocolate (or caramel)!

Watch the story here :

As I started this new diet about two months ago, I really had to watch what I ate and how much sugar I was putting into my body. In the past I would always reach for hard candies, or lots of other candies that had a lot of sugar and I became addicted to it. I've learned how to monitor what I eat, control what I eat, and watch what I put in my body. I've really cut back on a lot of the foods I used to eat, and have been looking for new foods to help me along the way to satisfy those cravings.

LoveBean Fudge is awesome.
I received the squeeze packs. Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Sea-Salt Caramel (not pictured). Hazelnut and Caramel where my go-to flavors. I always pick a hazelnut flavoring in coffee (when I used to drink it) as well as Caramel. I'm a huge caramel girl. I first used them for a treat with my apples, and then I realized, I could use it on so much more. I could add the spreads to my yogurt for an afternoon snack, ice cream -- when I decided to treat myself... so I could eat it right out of the package. I tried all! The Chocolate was good too, but I'm not a huge Chocolate lover. I did enjoy all of the flavors though. - What I like best about LoveBean is that it's a clean add on to your every day snack. It's made with real ingredients, and ingredients you can read. Huge Plus for me.

Barney Butter Review

"Our California almonds are grown right in our own back yard in Central Valley , California and then processed in our own 100% peanut free and certified organic facility. We use only the finest quality ingredients, including organic and fair trade when possible. All of our Barney Butter products are peanut free and gluten free, and all but Honey + Flax are Non GMO Verified. We make all of our artisan, small batch almond butters in our state of the art facility and package them for you in #1 PET, recycled jars, which are BPA Free. - See more at: https://barneybutter.com/promise/#sthash.FRseOx6C.dpuf"

I love almonds. They are a really good snack and I always have some with me for on-the-go. You never know when you're going to be hungry, and why not eat some almonds? Full of protein, and just tasty. There are so many different flavors out there too, so many choices to choose from. -- Then there is almond butter, which is just as good. I used to always be a peanut butter fan, but lately it's been all about the almond butter, and I am enjoying trying different brands out there. This time around it's Barney Butter. The first thing that drew me to them besides having the word "almond".. was their branding. Since I work in a print company I'm always noticing labels that stand out, and Barney Butters labels do just that. They are colorful and they grab your attention immediately. I contacted them, and they sent me these on-the-go packets to try. It's perfect actually... I'm in the car a lot.. and I always need a little pick me up, so these snack packs were perfect!
I have a favorite. I have two favorites actually. I'm a huge fan of the Vanilla + Espresso, and Honey + Flax. The vanilla though is my hands down favorite. I actually had those two packets right out of the packet. I used the others on my apples. I eat apples every day - mid morning - and I used to use peanut butter all the time, but lately I've been having the Almond Butter and I'm a huge fan. -- The only one I didn't try was the Cocoa + Coconut. I'm not a HUGE cocoa person, and my co-worker was very interested, so I gave her my packs. -- If I had a jar of Barney's Almond butter -- the Vanilla one.. I'd be eating out of the jar. -- So good! So good!

Barney Butter also has almonds, almond butter, the snack packs, and almond flour! If you like to cook - they have a few recipes you can check out, using their products of course! -- If you're looking for an alternative to Peanut Butter, you should definitely check out Barney Butter! -- To find out more, check them out on facebook, and instagram.

Fix Hot Sauce Review

I'm obsessed with all things spicy, and I love hot sauce. I have a few in my fridge that I used to use on a daily basis. Then I was introduced to Fix Hot Sauce one day on instagram, and requested to try it and I got lucky! Now I'm obsessed with Fix. I use it on almost everything!
I could share their story in words, but I'll let you watch it instead:

I've been using the sauce in all my breakfast foods. I even pour some in a container and bring it with me to work. I use it on my chicken, my tofu, and my veggies. It's so freaking good! It's spicy too! I remember the first time I tried it -- I had tears in my eyes from the heat... but that's what I like! I honestly will use Fix Hot sauce from here on out. As soon as my current bottle is gone, I'll buy more. -- I even had a freak out moment this morning when I was trying to find Fix for my breakfast. I've been keeping it on the counter since I use it everyday, but it wasn't there! My husband actually put it in the pantry... I was going nuts! It's back on the counter where it belongs. -- If you like spice, and like hot sauce.. I definitely recommend you try Fix Hot Sauce!!! You won't be sorry!!

Nibblee Bits Review

Healthy cooking and baking is what I'm doing these days. I'm on this diet where all I'm doing is eating clean. Taking the bad out. I've done it for a week now and I've felt so much better. At first I thought I was detoxing from all the bad things I was putting in my body, and in reality I realized it was all from the caffeine. Either way, I'm treating my body and my life better and I've been finding many new treats and items to help me do so. About a month ago I was sent an item called Nibblee Bits. Nibblee Bits is a cookie mix, and it's healthy for you. "Our chocolate chip cookie mix is a wholesome blend of almond and TigerNut flour with a perfect sweetness from coconuts, deep dark chocolate, and fragrant vanilla.".
It's an easy process to make these cookies too. I will show you what I did... but don't yell at me.. I burnt them :(
I don't think I took the picture of my burnt cookies. I did still eat them though. They were really good. They were the sweetness I needed for the day. I had two at a time. Chocolaty goodness. Who says baking can't be healthy!?!?! The cookies have: 4 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of protein. Not bad right?!?! The cookies are non GMO, grain free, and gluten free. I love trying products that are clean and healthy. Anything that will help on my journey to healthy is good by me!

Nut'N But Natural Review

In the mornings I normally have yogurt or oatmeal. When I eat both, I like to have toppings on them. Fruit, granola, nuts... you know... a variety of different items. I found a new healthy snack to put on top of both of my favorite breakfast items. Nut'N But Natural. They are not only healthy, but they are also very tasty.
"So many of us are gravitating toward healthier snack options these days. Our Nut N’ But Natural product line from Katharine Beecher Candies is made with active, health-conscious people in mind who want an energy-boosting snack that also tastes great.Nut N’ But Natural products are Kosher and they are made from natural, non-GMO ingredients with no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no cholesterol, to ensure wholesome goodness in every bite. Our Nut N’ But Natural product line from Katharine Beecher Candies is made with active, health-conscious people from teens to adults in mind who want an energy-boosting, healthy snack that also tastes great. They’re also flavored with a touch of honey for additional sweetness.".

The flavors: Cashews with Blueberries, Quinoa, and Cranberries. -- Glazed Cashews with Toasted Coconut. -- Cashews with Cocoa Nibs. -- Glazed Cashews with Blueberries, Cranberries and Sesame Seeds. -- Cinnamon Date Oatmeal Pumpkin. -- Cherry Chia Quinoa Almonds. -- They are made with all natural ingredients.
I'm absolutely obsessed with the Pumpkin and Oats flavor. I brought them all to work because that's where I eat my breakfast and I also like my co-workers to try the items I receive too. Pumpkin and Oats went into a private drawer at my desk... I had it almost every morning with my breakfast and the other flavors were there as a pick me up snack as the day went on.
These snacks are good for on the go, at home, at work, in the car, on vacation.. pretty much anywhere. They are healthy, made with healthy ingredients and they taste good. Check out their website today!

People's Choice Beef Jerky

Jerky? Yes please! I'm always up for trying any type of Jerky. So when People's Choice Beef Jerky contacted me about trying their jerky, you better believe I wrote "Yes" with no hesitation at all! Interested in their story:
"Made with a purpose, is doing something you care about". When you do something you care about, or make something you care about, the product turns out good. Well, People's Choice Jerky is definitely worth a try. I was sent many of their flavors to try and I have some favorites, and my work people have a favorite. So there are four categories when picking Jerky: Classic, Old Fashioned, Tasting Kitchen, and Carne Seca. Classic has your hot and spicy, original, and teriyaki. Old Fashioned has your Hot and Spicy and Original. Let's talk Hot and Spicy. Could it use a little more spice.. yes.. but for those people who don't like it THAT hot, it's perfect for them.
Tasting Kitchen. We'll start with the Garlic Ginger. Too much Garlic for me, BUT my co-workers were OBSESSED. The bag was gone almost as fast as it was opened. One of my co-workers even took a picture, posted it on facebook to rave about it. That almost never happens when I bring in food for them to try.
I was a huge fan of the sweet chili habanero. You could see the chili flakes in the bag and I knew it was going to be great at first bite and it was!
I really liked the Sriracha too. Can you tell that I'm a spice fan?
I LOVE the Lime jerky! It's so different that I am a huge fan. I didn't even bring this one to work with me, I kept it at home so I could have it all to myself. The lemon is good too, also different, but the Lime is my absolute favorite. - They also have this jerky chew. Shredded jerky.. I am hesitant and I know I should give it a try, but now right now. -- So there are so many different flavors to try and I may have forgotten to mention one or two, but that's okay, because you can explore yourself. People's Choice Jerky is definitely worth it. If you like Jerky, and you like people that really care about the product they make, then try it! They have different Jerky Boxes you can get. See which one works for you! Find out more on facebook and twitter.

Small Batch Granola Review

I love trying granola. I am especially happy that I was able to try Small Batch Granola.

"Vermont and Granola seem to conjure up the same happy thoughts. Simple, relaxed, honest, easy-- true for the state as well as the snack. If we were to choose the perfect place for a granola company, right here, nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains would be it. Small Batch Organics, an ideal snack from an ideal state… of place and mind.

Here's what I like best about Small Batch... not that they just make granola, but they make Granola Bark. I was so incredibly surprised when I opened the box. BARK! I love bark! I received Cherry, Coconut, and Coffee Bark. The Coconut Bark was gone within days. So good! Such a good snack to have. You can eat it plain, or you can break it apart and put it on yogurt or ice cream. I ate it plain. YUM!
You can buy each separate or they come in a variety pack. If I were to pick just one, I'd definitely get the Coconut Toffee again. SO addicting. The other two are good too, but the Coconut Toffee is my favorite! Then there is the granola. I love granola plain, but I especially like it with yogurt and fruit.
I received the cranberry maple (which is in the picture) and also toasted coconut ginger. Both extremely good. They also have original and cherry vanilla. Small Batch also carries maple syrup and Virgin Coconut Oil. Have you ever tried any maple syrup from Vermont? It's really good, and I bet Small Batch has great maple syrup as well.

Small Batch products are organic, and gluten free. To find out more you can check out their website, or visit them on facebook and twitter.
