Lovely Candy Company Product Review and Giveaway!

Looking for a healthier alternative to "regular" candy? 

We were recently provided with some delicious varieties of Lovely Candy Company's products to review. These products contain no artificial colors or artificial ingredients, no preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, and no trans fats. They are also certified nonGMO and gluten free.

Fudgee Rolls: I would say these are comparable to Tootsie Rolls, only much healthier! And they are much easier on the jaw. They were chocolatey and delicious. 

Raspberry Fudgee Rolls: If you like raspberry flavor with dark chocolate, you will want to try these. 

Original Fruit Chews and Fruit and Superfruit Chews: They are made with real fruit! You can't beat that! They are delicious and hard to stop eating...

They are a good, gelatin-free replacement for Starburst or other fruity candies like that. They are all natural, GMO free, and gluten free.

The Chocolate Swirl Caramels and Chewy Original Caramels have everything that could be desired in a caramel. They are gluten and nonGMO, with the first ingredient being brown rice syrup - and only few others following it

So if you're looking for a healthier alternative to "regular" candy, check out the Lovely Candy Company! Their products are available at Target and other retailers and also on Lovely Candy Company's website. As of right now, I see that shipping is free.

Not only was the Lovely Candy Company generous in providing us bags of their candies to try, they are also generously giving one of you a package of 12 bags of their candies! That's a $50 value! Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance at winning

ThePillowToss Etsy Shop Review

We recently moved to an apartment together, and one of the purchases that we made for that apartment is a $60 garage sale couch. This couch isn't perfect, it's seen a little wear, but it's definitely worth the price. The couch came with four throw pillows, and have been slowly updating those pillows using pillow covers from various Etsy shops.

ThePillowToss offers pillow covers in a variety of colors, designs, and sizes. One thing that I really liked, when browsing their shop, is the fact that they have the pillow covers organized by color - which made for fun browsing.

Thanks to Monica and Kathleen, the owners of the shop, we were allowed to pick out a pillow cover to receive and review, and we had a good time picking that pillow cover out from all of their designs.

Here are a few of the designs that I liked:

Gray Pillow,18x18 Pillow Cover, Chevron Pillow, Designer Pillow, Throw Pillow, Toss, Home Decor Pillows, Zippy Storm Twill

Animal Pillow, 16x16 Pillow Cover, Throw Pillow, Decorative Pillow, Dwell Studio, Boy,  Zoo Pals Blue

Blue Ikat Pillow, 16x16 Pillow Cover, Accent Pillows, Decorative Pillow, Cushion Cover, cm, Ikat Dots Arctic Blue Natural

The pillow cover that we chose is bold in design, and it definitely brightens up our living room much better than the pillow it is covering did.

Before and after shots:

The material used for the pillow cover is thick and high in quality. The overall design is great for our living room. We are very happy with this pillow cover!

Saffron Road Product Review

We were sent two Saffron Road coupons for free products to review, and we chose...

I have never had Chicken Pad Thai before, so I was a bit curious to see how it would be. I'm not a huge fan of peanuts, but I thought I might enjoy them in a sauce.

The dish was... interesting. I enjoyed the clean, simple taste of the noodles. I thought the chicken was hearty and very "real".

The sauce... I wasn't such a big fan of. But that's just me. It was a little too much, a little sweet... just not something that I would normally choose to eat.
The meal is gluten free, though, using rice noodles, and I thought that was really cool.

First, I need to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Asian food. My favorite part of this dish was the meat. From my experience with Chinese food, the meat is my favorite part as well. This beef was tender and cut into thin strips, which I liked.

Overall, this dish from Saffron Road was much richer than foods I am used to. It was also sweeter than I would prefer, but I think as a whole, that is simply Asian foods. If you like Asian foods, give it a try!

Saffron Road also offers things like chickpea snacks, desserts, and chicken nuggets. Most of the items are gluten free. Check them out for yourself and see which products you would enjoy!

Mamma Chia Organic Product Review

Mamma Chia recently gave us the opportunity to try their products by sending us several of their Chia Squeeze pouches, as well as a few coupons for free drinks.

The Chia Squeeze pouches are low in calories and full of healthy organic ingredients. I found them perfect for a light snack. I enjoyed the squeezes refrigerated, though they can also be eaten at room temperature. The pouches were very convenient to eat out of, too. And, they are gluten free!

The Mango Coconut Chia Squeeze had a fresh and fruity taste. I couldn't really find the coconut in the flavor, but that was fine with me, as I'm not a big fan, anyway.

The Wild Raspberry Chia Squeeze was the flavor that I was most excited about, and it didn't fail me. It had a good raspberry flavor. It was very refreshing in taste.

The Strawberry Banana Chia Squeeze was very flavorful. It actually tasted like candy to me.

The Blackberry Bliss Chia Squeeze was one that I wasn't too sure about eating, because I'm not a big fan of blackberries. The flavor, though, was really good. It was sweet and fresh, and it kind of reminded me of yogurt.

The Green Magic Chia Squeeze was another one that I was a bit nervous about. I thought it would taste really green - because of the name and the fact that it has kale in it. It actually just had a fresh and fruity flavor like the others.

The Apple Cinnamon Chia Squeeze was good, too, and it actually reminded me a bit of apple pie filling.

The Cranberry Lemonade Vitality Beverage was good fruity flavor, but basically the same thing as the squeezes in consistency. I was happy to see that it has 25% fiber in the drink. I liked the glass bottle.

The Mamma Chia drinks are also a good source of Omega3. Check them out for yourself!
