Manna Organics Bread Review

We were recently given the opportunity to try out and review a variety of sprouted breads thanks to Manna Organics.

The breads that we were given are from the Sprouted Bread line, but this company also offers gluten free options. I think that their gluten free breads sound tasty and I love that they are available at low prices. The brand also offers nut butters to go on their breads, kale chips to be eaten alongside a sandwich, and more!

Manna Bread is made from organic and kosher ingredients, which is really great. The bread has no yeast, no salt, no sweeteners, and no leavening agents in its ingredients. I love all that this bread offers and all that it is!

This bread is made from simple, healthy ingredients. I love the fact that I know what their ingredients are and that I know that they are good for me.

These breads are moist and hearty, and the Cinnamon Date variety was sweet, with a soft and chewy texture. It was a good, hearty sweet snack, with real raisins and dates in it.

Please note that these breads do spoil when left at room temperature, something that we found out the hard way.

Thank you, Manna Organics, for this great opportunity!

Kelly's Delight Cane Syrup Review

Kelly's Delight recently gave us the opportunity to try out and review their cane syrup options.

These syrups are great for pancakes and other breakfast foods, but they are also good for cooking, baking, drizzling, etc..

For those who are looking for a sweetener option that is not made of high fructose corn syrup these syrups make a great option. They are all natural and made of cane syrup.

The Maple Bacon syrup smells exactly the way that a breakfast should. It smells of smoky bacon and sweet syrup. The taste is similar to the scent, full of bacon flavor with a sweet maple twist.

The Cinnamon syrup turns normal pancakes into a delectable breakfast treat. I loved the way that this made my pancakes taste like a gourmet meal. The cinnamon flavor is noticeable but not too strong, just right for adding great taste.

The Maple syrup has a sweet and slightly smoky flavor. We used this as a sweetener in iced coffee and we liked the way that it changed up the flavor of our drink and made it into something special. This is also delicious with pancakes - and it would be great as a sweetener in baked goods.

The Liquid Sugar is sweet - as you would expect - and is great for baking and for using in drinks. If you like your pancakes extra sweet and simply sweet this also works as a good syrup. I used it on pancakes and liked the sweet taste.

There are so many uses for these syrups, and I love the way that they are so easy to use. It's nice to be able to pour out just how much sweetener you need and then stick the rest back into the pantry.

What would you like to try these syrups in?

Thank you, Kelly's Delight, for this opportunity!

Tumbador Chocolate, Part Two

Tumbador Chocolate recently gave us a variety of products to try out, and this is the second post that we did for them.

Tumbador Chocolate puts out products that are high in quality and that are full of flavor.

The Cafe Au Late bar is sweet and creamy with great coffee flavor. I love the texture of this, I love the fancy design on the bar, I love the simple ingredients, and I love the special taste.

The Sweet and Salty bar combined a delicious amount of milk chocolate with a salty crunch. The chocolate was so milky. This bar made a great afternoon treat!

The PB & J bar was delicious. It combined sweetness, creaminess and a bit of crunch. It's perfect for anyone who enjoys peanut butter.

One bar that we were not sent to review but that I think sounds delicious is the Holy Mole Spicy Dark Chocolate bar.

Mmm... the Corn Nut Dragee Mole Blend treats are truly delicious. These things are seriously addicting. They are crunchy, chocolaty, and full of flavor. These contain a bit of heat but not so much that you can't enjoy the taste of them. I love these! Never had anything like them before.

The Cashew, Coconut, Ginger and Pineapple bar was a tasty sweet treat. It was actually so sweet it tasted like candy. I like how it was soft and chewy. I don't care for the texture of pineapple, but this bar didn't have that texture. The ginger flavor was barely noticeable, which I appreciated as well.

The Apple Pecan Cinnamon bar was sweet and gooey with a nice crunch to it. I liked the way that the pecans crunched, I liked the stickiness. This was a tasty bar that was full of flavor and made for a great addition to my lunch.

Thank you, Tumbador Chocolate, for this opportunity!

Goodie Girl Cookies

Goodie Girl Cookies recently sent us a variety of treats to try out and review.

These cookies are gluten free, which I think is great. They are also made without "junk" ingredients. 

The Toffee Chaos cookies are crunchy and delicious. These have a nice, sweet taste and great crunch. These are buttery cookies filled with bits of toffee.

The Midnight Brownie cookies have a rich chocolate flavor. Who doesn't like having a cookie that is made to be like a brownie? These are delicious and something that I could snack on again and again.

The Mint Slims are really tasty. I love the way that these dark chocolate cookies are covered in a chocolate coating. These are full of flavor, rich and delicious.

The Quinoa Choco-Chip cookies had a good chocolate chip cookie flavor. They were packed with chocolate chips, which I enjoyed. I like how they were bite-sized. The only thing I would change is to have them be soft, instead of crunchy. But I enjoyed them overall.

The Oatmeal Raisin Cookies had a good cinnamon-y flavor. They were sweet and the raisins were soft and chewy. They were a good cookie for people who like crunchy cookies, versus soft.

Thank you, Goodie Girl Cookies, for this opportunity!

Divvies Review

We were recently given the opportunity to try out a variety of products from Divvies.

Divvies offers products that are free of nuts, eggs, and dairy. These products are not all gluten free, but the chocolate bars are - and the rest of Divvies' candy offerings are.

The Chocolate Brownie Cookies are full of rich chocolaty deliciousness. These cookies were everything I like in a cookie: soft, chewy and chocolaty. I like the chunks of chocolate and the soft moistness.

The Chocolate Chip Cookies are everything you could want in a chocolate chip cookie: chewy, soft, moist, and filled with chocolate chips. They made for a delicious afternoon snack.

I love the way that the cookies are packaged in small packets of two - this makes them great for lunches, travelling, and snacking. (Again, they are not gluten free).

The Kettle Corn has a sweet and salty flavor. I have tried many versions of kettle corn and this was one of my favorites. This is almost like a salty version of caramel corn. This is fluffy and light with a sweet and salty coating that makes it delicious.

The Benjamint Crunch Bar is sweet, minty, and delicious. This bar is full of peppermint flavor, and I really like the crunch that it has. The chocolate is smooth and sweet, and the mint crunch really adds something special to it.

The Divvine Chocolate Bar has a great taste that is just dark enough and not too sweet. I like the deep chocolate flavor that comes from the semi-sweet chocolate. This is pure chocolate and a truly delicious snack or treat.

The Crispy Rice Crunch Bar has great chocolate flavor. I like that this bar is semi-sweet, that's not something that you find in a candy bar too often but I felt that it was the perfect balance between milk and dark chocolate. The crunchy rice in this bar adds a great texture, and this is delicious, overall.

I love the way that the chocolate bars are divided! Definitely fair, right?

If you are looking for some delicious treats that are free of dairy, nuts, and egg, you don't want to miss all that Divvies has to offer!

Thank you, Divvies, for this opportunity!

Which product above sounds the best to you?

Spindrift Soda - Made with Real, Fresh-Squeezed Fruit!

We were recently given the opportunity to try Spindrift Soda.

Some of the things that I love about these sodas: They contain real, fresh-squeezed fruit. They do not contain concentrates, syrups, artificial colors, or artificial sweeteners. They are gluten free! They are made from simple - and minimal - ingredients.

In addition to the products that we were sent Spindrift offers seltzers that are free of sugar but flavored and a great drink option.

The Sparkling Grapefruit variety contains real, grapefruit taste. I love the way that this captures the tart taste that grapefruit possesses yet is still sweet enough to be enjoyable. This is a refreshing and pretty drink.

The Orange Mango variety was sweet and fresh. I love the color - again - and I enjoyed the sweetness of this drink. I like how mango was mixed in so that the drink was different from other orange sodas out there. We were surprised to find pulp in this soda - that's just how real this drink is!

The Lemonade is so tasty! It has a refreshing - real - lemon taste and I love the way that that goes along with the carbonation. This is a drink that is really tasty and fun to drink.

The Blackberry drink is something that is so different from other sodas that are out there. I love the sweet and tangy flavor that this drink has. I love the bold color. I like the richness of the flavor and I found this to be something that is really special.

The Ginger Beer has powerful ginger flavor and some good heat from that. This is a truly unique drink and something that is full of flavor. I thought that this was interesting and something that really woke me up.

The Half & Half drink has a strong tea flavor with a bit of lemon mixed in. I was expecting this to be similar to the lemonade, but it certainly had a flavor that was all its own - definitely something that is different in a soda.

Overall, Spindrift definitely offers something special when it comes to soda. Which of these sodas do you think you would enjoy the most?

Thank you, Spindrift, for this opportunity!

Tumbador Chocolate, Part One

Tumbador Chocolate recently gave us the opportunity to review a variety of their quality products. Because we received so many treats I decided to create two posts for the brand, one to share now and one to share later.

Tumbador Chocolate was founded in Brooklyn in 2005. This company uses the finest natural ingredients to create products that are truly special.

Tumbador Chocolate offers a variety of chocolate bars, fruit and nut bars, bonbons, and more.

The Li'l Devil's Food Cake was so fluffy and soft. This treat is made of chocolate cake that is coated with chocolate and filled with a sweet filling. This is a rich snack with a crunchy shell. This is something that can be enjoyed as a dessert, a special treat, or a pick-me-up. Yum!

Yum, yum, yummy is my summary of the chocolate animal crackers. They had such a deliciously rich chocolate flavor with the crunch of an animal cracker. They are a great sweet snack. I would compare them to a candy bar, they are that good!

The Graham Cracker Spread worked well on my pancakes as a sweet replacement for syrup. It gave them a sweet, cinnamon-y flavor, which I liked. The spread had similar consistency to peanut butter and tasted very much like graham crackers.
The brand also puts out a Cookies and Cream spread which sounds truly delicious!

Look for another review of this great brand of products coming out soon!

Thank you, Tumbador Chocolate, for this great opportunity!
