Naked Infusions Salsa Review

"Life itself is always our best teacher. Growing up on a farm, I learned about a salsa so fresh, so natural, so alive with flavor and goodness that it taught me to live a better life, both professionally and personally.
For the past two decades, I’ve traveled the world in pursuit of healthful living and wellness. It’s not just a way of life, but also my life’s work. In helping others live better, I’ve visited many of the world’s culinary capitals. And while I’ve savored many wonderful meals along the way, equaling the memory of the salsa that originally inspired my journey has always eluded me.
Until now. With Naked Infusions, the real salsa of my youth is finally back. I use only the freshest organic ingredients from local California farms to provide rich, smooth, clean, authentic flavors. Ones that not only make you happy in the moment, but also inspire you to live better – and to do better. Which is why we donate a portion of every Naked Infusions sale to OrphanedArtists.org to help artists in need make our world more beautiful.
I hope you enjoy Naked Infusions as much as I’ve enjoyed bringing them to you.
In good health, Your Founder of Naked Infusions
"

I love Salsa. I especially love Medium Heat/Hot Salsas. I was pretty surprised to see that Naked Infusions let me try many of their salsas, that I even brought some to work, so my supervisor and I could have a tasting party!!

Why Naked Infusions?
100% Organic
Non-Gmo/Vegan
Gluten Free
No sugar, no vinegar, no onions


Black Silk Expresso- Medium Heat- I definitely got a kick of the espresso as an after taste. This is one of them that my supervisor and I had a taste party with. She could taste the espresso through the whole thing. It was very tasty, and not that hot! I let her enjoy this one.
Rustic Blue Cheese-- Medium Heat-- I have yet to try this one. My boyfriend likes Blue Cheese though!
Fire Roasted Garlic. -- Medium heat-- this is another one we haven't tried yet. But we both like garlic, so I'm very excited. This will be the next one we open up.
Signature Ripe Tomato- HOT-- i like hot, hot, but not THAT hot... so I gave this to my supervisor, who will be using this for superbowl, and as soon as she saw HOT, she was very excited. I'm glad Naked Infusions was able to help her out with that!
Signature Ripe Tomato- Medium heat- this one is open in my refrigerator right now. When I opened it up, i took a quick smell. Smells like pasta sauce, tastes amazing, medium heat, definitely has a kick to it... i'm a fan.
Oxaca White Chocolate -- Medium heat-- This is the other one that we had a taste party with. Couldn't really taste the white chocolate in it, but that's okay, it was still tasty. I let my supervisor bring this one home too. Now we both have lots of salsa's to keep us happy!!

If you buy two of more you get free shipping!! These are great salsas for any occasion!! Do they sell them near you? If not, definitely buy them online. The salsa's are very very very very good. If you like the medium heat, you'll love these.

Campbells Skittlet Sacues

Thanks to #crowdtap, I was able to try some of Campbells new Skillet Sauces. Campbell has skillet sauces and crockpot sauces. Different types for each. For the Skillets, the sauces are:
Marsalla (chicken)
Creamy Chipolte
Fire Roasted Tomato
Scampi
Thai Green Curry
and Toasted Sesame

The Crockpot sauce flavors are:
Tavern Style Pot Roast
Sweet Korean Beef
Apple Bourbon Bbq
Hawaiian Luau
Mexican Red Chili Taco
and Moroccan Spiced Stew


I wasn't able to throw a party, but I was able to pick up two of the skillet sauces and use them for dinner for my boyfriend and I. Last night we were able to try the Marsala. I made chicken Marsala. First off it's a healthy dinner, and it's really tasty. The sauce definitely tasted like we were eating Chicken Marsala from an Italian Recipe.

When I told my boyfriend it was from Campbells he was very excited. He's definitely a campbells fan. We are going to try the Sesame chicken next week, and as a side, we're going to try it with some pasta!

Thank you #campbells and #crowdtap for this tasting party!!

North Fork Chips Review


"We know potatoes! To get a crunchier, thicker, addictively tasty potato chip, we had to do a few things differently: First off, we’re lucky to have great soil here in the North Fork, which means our potatoes have a field-fresh sweetness to them. We always cut them twice as thick for a more hearty potato flavor. Then we “kettle cook” the potatoes which makes them extra crunchy. Finally, we only cook with real sunflower oil and salt. And nothing else. Your search for the perfect chip is over… start crunching! Enjoy, The Sidor Family." Read the rest of the story on how these chips came about here.

My boyfriend and I love chips, and we love trying chips we've never heard before. When I came across North Fork Chips, what grabbed my attention first was the packaging. Each flavor is a different bright color! I like Kettle Chips, and asked to try them and was sent some snack sized bags :)

I had the bbq chips for lunch today. They were so tasty! They weren't too spicy either which is good. I like biting into each chip and hearing a crunch while enjoying the great flavor. It's a Texas style bbq chip made with onion, garlic, vinegar and paprika -- a touch of molasses, sugar and tomato.
Cheddar/Onion. I am packing this in my lunch for tomorrow. I did however take a sneak taste. The cheddar is amazing and you can taste bits of onion as well. It's made with sharp cheddar cheese!
All natural -- no preservatives, cholesterol, or trans fat.
Rosemary & Garlic- Have yet to try this one... this will probably be a Wednesday snack at lunch. Nice fact about this chip though "Fitness magazine gave it the “Healthy Food” award because it “delivers a ‘big, smoky taste’ but has about a third less fat than regular potato chips”.. I'm definitely excited to try this flavor out!
Salt and Vinegar was the first bag we tried. My boyfriend ate most of it though. Very tasty. Both the flavors even themselves out!
Sour Cream and Onion is by far my favorite. The flavor does not over power the chips like other brands do. You can enjoy each and every bite.
Sweet Potato-- haven't tried this one yet either, but I love sweet potato chips, so I'm sure they will taste great. There is no seasoning or salt added!



Their Nutritional Value states " Compared with most chips, our Kettle Cooked potato chips are much healthier. We cook them strictly with sunflower oil and a salt. That’s it. So they’re all natural, with no additives, preservatives, trans-fats or cholesterol. And every flavor but Barbeque is Gluten free.".

North Fork Chips were featured in Fitness Magazine and on the Rachael Ray Show!


They are incredibly good and worth a tasting! You can order them online by clicking here. Find them on Facebook, and Twitter.

I was able to try the Slims Collection,and they offer three different flavors of the Slims: Banana, Cranberry Orange, and Cocoa. The slims are a desert cracker. Each packet is only 100 calories!

I'm a huge banana fan. I also love banana bread, and these taste exactly like it. This was my absolute favorite! Some serving suggestions: eating as is, on ice cream, spread with peanut butter, use in yogurt.. so many different ways to use these!!
I enjoyed my Cocoa Slim with a glass of milk. You can taste the chocolaty cocoa in each and every bite. Some serving suggestions: a topping on your cereal, or ice cream.. use with a marshmallow sauce!
Cranberry Orange... I still have these left to try, the only package I haven't tried yet! I'm definitely going to try this on top of some plain or vanilla yogurt!

Each of the slims contains no MSG or trans fat. These Slims are good on the go, or pairing them with something else. Check out the other products they have to offer... they even have a line of Gluten Free snacks as well! They all look so yummy!

EatKeenwa Krunch Review

Have you ever seen or heard of EatKeenwa?
"eatKeenwa Krunch are 100% all-natural cluster snacks packed with the super grain, quinoa ( pronounced keen-wa), fruit, nuts and natural sweeteners such as agave and honey. They are certified gluten free, have no trans fats, no cholesterol, are low in sodium, and are preservative and soy free. They are made from 100% non-GMO ingredients. They are available in three flavors: Vanilla Almond Raisin, Cinnamon Banana Strawberry, and Walnut Date Agave."

I love Quinoa. I love cooking with it. I'm always looking for new recipes that I can make with quinoa. I've even tried quinoa mac and cheese! I've tried other Quinoa snacks before and when I ran across eatKeenwa, I wanted to try them as well. I'm actually quite glad I did. So far I've tried two out of the three flavors. These krunches are:
gluten-free
non-gmo
have no trans-fat
soy & dairy free
whole grain
source of complete protein
cholesterol free


Cinnamon Banana Strawberry is by far my favorite so far. It's made with all-natural strawberry and banana chips, and a splash of honey and cinnamon. So incredibly good.
Vanilla Almond Raisin-- made with roasted almonds, and sweet raisins.
Walnut Date Agave-- I'm saving this for next week. we are going on a road trip, and will need an on-the-go snack!

You can see the quinoa pieces in each and every cluster. It's pretty cool.

You can either eat them from the bag, or over yogurt, or even with milk. I think I'm going to try out the milk deal for breakfast tomorrow!
For every bag that's sold, the company donates resources to the fight against world hunger ad to support the development of quinoa as a sustainable crop. Pretty awesome if you ask me.
I am so incredibly happy that I had the chance to try these quinoa treats. I am a huge fan and can definitely see myself buying some bags in the future. If you want to learn more about these snacks, you can find them on:
https://www.facebook.com/EatKeenwa
twitter
google +
pinterest
eatKeenwa's website

On the website you can find out all sorts of information about quinoa, the world hunger cause, and you can read about how the snack was created. If you like quinoa as much as I do, you will most likely like these clusters. If you've never tried quinoa before, there's a first time for everything :)

Amberlyn Chocolate Review

Amberlyn Chocolates are sugar-free, Belgian chocolates.

"If you’re one of those who believe that the words “sugar free” and “chocolate” don’t belong in the same sentence, then you’re in for delightful surprise. We’re out to prove that letting go of sugar and carbohydrates doesn’t have to take any of the joy out of eating really good (dare we say great?) chocolate. How? Well we start with highest quality chocolate imported from Belgium. Then we add the freshest and finest natural flavors, nuts and other tasty inclusions to make our healthy lifestyle chocolate confections. We guarantee they don’t taste sugar free.

The company called The Cacao Group that makes Amberlyn Chocolates also makes Cold Stone Chocolate and Utah Truffles. I was sent those as well to try!.

Have you ever had Cold Stone Ice Cream? Were you satisfied for how good it was? The candies taste the exact same.
My favorite is the cookies n cream. So incredibly good, and so incredibly gone.

I also received Utah Truffles.
I haven't tried these yet, but they look so incredibly good, and I love me some truffles.

Chocolate always makes good gifts. These are perfect even with Valentines Day coming up. Do you have someone you want to buy these for? You can find Amberlyn Chocolates on: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or you can check out the website.

Real Foods Corn Thins Review

"Real Foods Pty Ltd is an Australian company producing, marketing and distributing popped-grain crispbreads for the Australian and export markets.
The company was founded in 1980 by Michael Pels, the current owner and Managing Director, and employs 100 people in its manufacturing facility in Sydney, Australia.
Real Foods has experienced rapid growth over the last 12 years since the development and launch of its major product line, Corn Thins, a natural, low-fat crispbread made from popped corn."


GUILT FREE FOODS. I am literally in heaven over these corn thins. They are so incredibly good, and you can feel no guilt after eating them. The calorie and carb count is absolutely amazing. At this exact moment I'm eating the Tasty Cheese flavor. The Nutritional Facts: Serving is 1 slice. Calories per that slice, 28. Total fat .5, total sodium 51mg, and total cars, 5g. I mean come on, this is a perfect snack!
These Corn thins are by far my new favorite snack. I'm seriously watching my carb intake this year, and every time I go into the pantry, instead of reaching for some chips, I grab a corn thin.



The Flavors they offer are: Original
Soy & Linseed
Multigrain
Seasame
Rice Thins
Honey Soy
Tasty Cheese (absolute favorite, the bag is almost gone :()
and
Sour Cream & Chives


For Breakfast last week I had a multigrain corn thin with some peanut butter and banana slices. It was so yummy, tasty, and filling. I would totally cut out bread for the next few months and use the corn thins for lunches! I have literally found my favorite snack.

Here are some more facts about Corn Thins: No preservatives
Less than 10% fat
Gluten & GMO Free
The whole family can enjoy!!

I just checked and they sell these Corn Thins at the Kroger in the town over. I'm excited, as soon as I'm out of the ones I received, I'm definitely going over there and buying some more. You can find where they are near you by clicking here. You don't have to use just peanut butter and bananas like I did... there are so many different ways to eat the Corn Thins, and you can find out ideas here. I am so incredibly happy I had a chance to try these. No complaints at all. 110% satisfied!!!
