Angelino's Coffee Review

Every morning (most mornings) when I wake up I always go out and get coffee before work. I do have a Keurig, and for some reason only use it on the weekends. I've been trying to use it more and save my $$. I was sent Angelino's K-Cups to review. They sent me a variety pack and there are so many choices to choose from! The coffee is roasted to order, and that means every cup is very fresh! That's how I like my coffee!
"We source, roast, and pack our estate coffees using the highest quality coffee beans. By selling directly to you online, we're able not only to provide among the most competitively priced coffees, but provide it as fresh as possible. Cutting out middle men who store the coffees from one warehouse to the next until it finally reaches you, sometimes 3-5 months after it’s roasted. You’re always assured the best beans, freshly roasted and packed at the best prices."

So far I've tried the french vanilla and hazelnut creme. I love hazelnut -- and it's so smooth and delicious and gave me the taste I needed right in the morning.
So how does it work: You choose your plan (the quantity), how often you want the coffee shipped to you, and then you get to pick which flavors you want. You can change, or cancel anytime. It's quite easy! You can also send a gift to someone as well. Coffee gifts are always the best! There are four different gift options to choose from. - My parents will be here in a few weeks and I'm glad they will get the opportunity to try Angelino's coffee and the variety they have to offer. Find them on facebook and twitter.

Ellovi Review

Every Ellvoi
product is made with only 6 ingredients. -- With the winter months among us, it was nice to try a body butter that soaked into my skin and made my skin feel nourished. I didn't even have to keep putting it on every hour or every day. I could feel how hydrated my skin felt for a few days. What's special about Ellovi is that they only use 6 ingredients. They never use water, and everything is 100% concentrated. All the ingredients are pure and natural. They have body butter products and lip butter products. I received one of each to try.
The vanilla body butter is awesome and the mint chocolate lip balm spells like heaven. You can use the body butter on your legs, arms, face... wherever you'd like. It comes in a variety of scents: Vanilla, Original, Mint Chocolate and Blossom. The Lip Butter comes in: Original, Vanilla, Tinted, Milk Chocolate, and Blossom.

If my birthday was a few months away, I would definitely ask for a jar of the body butter.. but since it's next week and I already asked for things, I may just have to buy some myself or ask for it for a must have before I get married in April! I love how it hydrates my skin so well! I'm such a fan! You can find out more on facebook, instagram, and twitter.

E&C's Snacks Reviews

Cookies! We love cookies in this household. I stumbled across E&C's snacks and saw cookies! I was sent all their Heavenly Hunk Products to enjoy, and enjoy we did! The best cookies come from home cooks who discover their specialties right in their own kitchen and that's what E&C Snacks did.
Each and everyone of their cookies are made with oatmeal. In each and every bite you can taste the oatmeal as well as the flavor it represents. I tried the original, the white chocolate, the chocolate chip, and the oatmeal raisin. Do I have a favorite? Actually yes... it goes to the Original and then 2nd best -- white chocolate :) When I first received them, I will admit that I had more than 1... they were addicting. Then I allowed myself to have one a day. My fiance is a huge fan of the oatmeal raisin. That's his favorite cookie of all time! You can enjoy them plain, you can crumble them up and put them on yogurt or ice cream.. or you can enjoy them any other way you'd like. They are really good!
Each pack has 8 gluten free hunks. Each Hunk is baked with real ingredients and with love! They are great cookies! -- They have new products out there too! Hunkola -- cookies and granola put together! Two different boxes out right now: Berry Scrumptious Peanut Butter Bash Hunkola, and Nutterly Awesome Cran Jam Hunkola.

You can find more on facebook and twitter and instagram. Try them today!

Piedmont Candy Company Review

I moved from Michigan to North Carolina about 5 years ago. I like finding products from both states to review and this time around it's Piedmont Candy Company. Piedmont Candy Company makes Red Bird Mints.
Here at the Piedmont Candy Company, we’ve been making Red Bird puffed mints and candies from our hometown in Lexington, NC since 1890. Using only 100% pure cane sugar, it’s more than a recipe – it’s a family tradition. Our candies are naturally gluten-free, allergen-free, Kosher, and never contain corn syrup. Because our puffs are handcrafted, each one is unique, like a snowflake … only minty!

They have different kinds of mints: Mini, Puffs, and Sticks. Each taste equally as good. The Mini's come in three different flavors: Peppermint, Lemon, and Dark Chocolate Peppermint. The Puffs come in many different flavors: Peppermint Puffs Assorted Puffs: strawberry, cream penny (vanilla), lemon, orange, green apple, watermelon, passion fruit, cotton candy, pink grapefruit and key lime Cinnamon Puffs Citrus Puffs: lemon and orange. So many to choose from! The Sticks come in four different flavors: Peppermint, Vanilla, Lemon, and Cinnamon. -- I received many of their varieties.
They also have Puffs in the birthday cake flavor and it's in a really nice box! They actually do taste just like birthday cake! I was pleasantly surprised!
The mints are very good! I've seen them around town, but was excited to try something made from North Carolina. I'm actually saving the big bucket of mints for my wedding. We are creating gift bags for the out of towners hotel rooms, and it would be good to have something from North Carolina in there! Everyone always loves mints!

Garnier SkinActive Review

I was selected to participate in the Garnier SkinActive campaign with crowdtap. I was asked to throw a party and introduce people to Garnier's new products: SkinActive Moisturizer and also the Micellar Cleansing Water. I've heard of Micellar products through other brands before but never actually tried it out. Unfortunately I live kind of out there and having people come to a party wasn't going to happen, so I brought the products and the party to work! My co-workers (girls) had heard of Garnier before and used some of their products and were excited when I told them about the products I received.
The moisturizer is my favorite. I've always been told to use it every day, but I never really listened until now. I feel my face as more smooth, and my face feels good as well. The Moisturizer has SPF 15 included in it, and that's always a plus. It's clinically proven to show results in just one week and I've seen those results! It has an antioxidant complex with Vitamin C, E, and LHA. The moisturizer improves skin texture, and also reduces wrinkles. --

I'm not much of a make up wearer, but I will wear it occasionally. It's always hard to find cleaning remover that does a good job. That's where the Micellar Cleansing Water comes into place. It removes makeup and cleanses in just one step. You don't have to rub very hard to get the make up off either.. That's always been a problem of mine. It's very powerful and even works on sensitive skin. There are two kinds: the original and one that removes waterproof mascara. All you need to do it pour on to a cotton pad, and then press the pad over a spot on your face where you want to remove the makeup... tada.. it's off!
Four of my co-workers let me take pictures of them with the products. They have been telling me over the last few days how much they really appreciate having the chance to try out Garnier Products. You can learn more about the products here. You can also find them at your local drug stores, or grocery stores! Thanks to crowdtap for allowing me this opportunity to teach and share with my friends/co-workers about Garniers new Skin Active products!

Caveman Foods Review

"Caveman Foods is on a mission to make clean, nutritious snacking the norm by providing delicious, portable Paleo-inspired snacks. We are often faced with so many choices when it comes to snacks, and often times we have to make trade-offs. Having convenient snacks doesn’t mean sacrificing nutrition or taste, which is why our products are made with the highest quality, Paleo-inspired ingredients and packed with incredible flavor. So, what is Paleo-inspired? It’s a way of eating inspired by our ancestors, which consisted primarily of nuts, seeds, fruit, vegetables and lean meats. Everything our bodies are meant to eat."

I have been trying to eat a lot of unprocessed, clean foods, and Caveman Foods are just that. They are also tasty. They are filled with protein that help me get through a busy day. I received some of their Chicken Jerky, Primal Bars, and Nutrition Bars. -- The big hit was the Chicken Jerky. Whenever I get anything jerky to review I always have to bring it into work. The people I work with are huge Jerky fans just like me, and we always talk about what we like/don't like. I received two flavors: Buffalo, and Spicy BBQ
So what was the consensus? I was a huge fan of the Buffalo, but everyone else liked the BBQ. For me, I didn't think the Spicy BBQ was that spicy.. and I'm not really a BBQ fan... however, when it came to the Buffalo, I was in love. There is so much spice and it lasts a long time. I haven't had much chicken jerky before, but I really enjoyed it!

Chicken Bars: Smoked Jalapeno, Sweet Cherry, and Blueberry Pepper. I've only tried the Jalapeno so far, and I'm a huge fan. I love spice and there's definitely spice. There are 18 grams of protein per bar.
All the Caveman bars are Gluten-Free. They taste like a candy bar, but are made with nuts, seeds, fruits and dark chocolate, and they don't have all the added sugar. They have so many different flavors for you to choose from! If you're looking for clean foods or paleo foods, Caveman Products are for you! They are great tasting, clean, and full of protein!

TruProteins Review

I love protein shakes. I like having them in the early morning when I start my day, and then right before a workout. I sometimes even have a shake right after a workout to get the protein fueling in my body to help my muscles! I used to just find the best tasting protein powder and I never really gave it a look to see what I was putting in my body. I since discovered TruProteins. TruProteins are not a processed whey protein. They are Australian Grass-Fed Whey Protein Concentrate.
Only the highest ingredients are used in the protein. I received Coconut Creme Pie and Dark Cacao Nutra Whey. Product Details:
Non-GMO
Gluten-free
rbGH Hormone-free
100% Australian Grass Fed Whey
Sweetened with Coconut Water & Stevia
Flax & Chia povide ALA Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Every ingredient brings nutritional value
Over 6 grams of Branched-Chain Amino Acids
Each batch is 3rd party lab tested for Strength, Purity & Composition

All you need to do is mix 2 scoops in juice, water, or milk. I tried the coconut creme pie this past week with both milk and water. It's amazing the taste. I love coconut and with the milk I felt like I was drinking an actual milkshake! It gave me the energy I needed in the morning and after my workouts. This next week I'm going to make a banana coconut smoothie for breakfast! -- I haven't tried the Dark Cacao yet, but I'm most likely going to make smoothies with bananas and/or peanut butter. I don't like chocolate plain so adding other ingredients with the protein will be great!
Read what other people think about TruProtein here I like to know what I put into my body and I try eat a clean diet. I'm very happy that I was able to try TruProtein. Find them on facebook and twitter.
