Qwackers Gluten Free Crackers

We were recently given the chance to try and review Qwackers Gluten Free Crackers.

These crackers are gluten free. They contain no artificial coloring, preservatives, flavoring or ingredients of any kind. They are GMO free, soy free, sugar free, and corn free!

I have always loved cheese crackers - like, the classic kids' ones - but they are something that you can't really find when you are gluten free. I was very happy to have the chance to try Qwackers and to share them with you.

Qwackers are full of cheese flavor! I love that they taste like real cheese.

These provide some crunch while still staying somewhat soft, if that makes sense. Just the way that I like crackers.

These taste fresh and delicious.

I love the fun, duck shape of the crackers.

Thank you, Qwackers, for this opportunity!

Don't Go Nuts

We were recently given the opportunity to review a variety of products from Don't Go Nuts.
These are nut free foods that were made with nut-free kids in mind.

The Blueberry Blast Bar: This bar had a sweet blueberry flavor. I liked the soft texture. It made for a filling snack.

The Boogie Board Bash Bar Because it is described as  a brownie with chocolate chips, I expected it to taste more chocolatey than it did. Still, it was a good bar.

The Lift Service Bar was soft and sweet, like the others. 

The Whitewater Chomp Bar The bar was sweet. I liked the soft texture, just as with the other bars.

The Gorilla Power Bar: I could summarize this bar in one word: YUM! It offered a chewy, chocolatey sweet deliciousness. It made for a great snack and was a granola bar that couldn't be beat!

The Celestial Campout Bar: I liked the soft texture of this bar. It has a slight cinnamon flavor, which was good.

The Lightly Sea Salted Spread was a great addition to my morning smoothie. I love the salty and "nutty" flavor that it brought. So rich and delicious.

The Chocolate Spread has a nice, chocolate flavor to it. I love the mix of chocolate and peanut butter, so this was a great alternative to that. This is awesome in smoothies, too.

The Cinnamon Sugar  Spread is not as sweet as I expected it to be with sugar in the name, but still good. Warm cinnamon flavor. Great on a rice cake as an accompaniment to my breakfast smoothie.

The Slightly Sweet Spread was possibly my favorite, just because it seemed to have the best "nutty" flavor. I ate this on a s'more and straight-up and it was great.

They also make a Unsalted Spread that we didn't receive, but that I'm sure would be great for those who are looking to go the low sodium route.

Thank you, Don't Go Nuts, for this opportunity!

Which product above do you think sounds the best? Have you tried any Don't Go Nuts products?

Until the Dawn Book Review

Bethany House Publishers recently provided me with a copy of Until the Dawn by Elizabeth Camden.

Cover Art

It took awhile to get into the story and it was hard to feel for/understand/sympathize with the main characters of Until the Dawn right away. It was also very difficult to tell the ages of the main characters.

As you get into the book, there is heart to it and emotion. There are some touching pieces, which I enjoy in a good book.

My biggest complaint was how the author never came right out and spoke about the gospel, even though there were plenty of opportunities to do so. The story vaguely mentioned God and Christianity and the Bible, but it was hard to tell what the characters truly believed about Jesus and salvation. I don't expect for every Christian book to have those elements, but as I said, there were plenty of opportunities and I feel the author missed them.

I was also bothered by the decisions made by the main character, Sophie. It felt like she followed her emotions too much, and in a real-life situation, I think it would have gotten her into trouble. 

The above kept me from enjoying the book. The overall story was okay, but I have read stories much better by Elizabeth Camden. Until the Dawn didn't offer the same type of mystery or suspense, in my opinion.

That said, if you enjoyed the author's other books, I'm sure you will want to give Until the Dawn a read. If you do so, or have done so, please comment below with your thoughts!

Namas Bar Review - Organic, GF, Vegan, Non-GMO, No Added Sugar!

Namas Bar recently gave us the opportunity to try out their bars. These bars are organic and vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, and they feature simple, healthy ingredients.

For each bar that is sold, a meal is donated, which is another cool thing about this company and these bars. You can do good while enjoying a great treat.

The Almond Cacao bar is full of chocolate flavor. I love those bars that are filled with real chocolate and rich chocolate taste, and this is one of them. I like the crunch, the chew, and the actual chocolate chips in the bar.

The Chai Chia bar has a flavor that is definitely unique. It is warm and spicy. I really like the fact that this bar does not have any nuts in it! This bar is tasty and different, and the tea flavor makes it a great breakfast option.

Thank you, Namas Bar, for this opportunity!

Love Myself Organics Review

We were recently given the chance to try out and review the Forever version of Love Myself Organics' deodorant.

Love Myself Organics offers deodorant that is made with ingredients that are safe. This deodorant features ingredients that are edible. This company puts out products that are not tested on animals, products that are non-GMO, and products that are organic.

I love the fact that this deodorant contains such simple and safe ingredients. I love the fact that it is all natural and organic. I really like the clean lavender scent of this product.

As someone who has tried natural deodorants before, I know that there are some good ones out there, but I also know that some do not work.

This is a product that really does work. This product smells great and it kept me scent free. This product goes on smoothly with minimal mess.

I am very happy to have another natural deodorant to add to my list of products that really work!

Have you tried natural deodorant before? What has been your experience?

Thank you, Love Myself Organics, for this opportunity!
