GrazeLogo.jpg

 

If you guys haven’t heard of Graze yet, it’s a really great snack subscription box that allows you to customize your selection of treats so you get something that’s just right for you.  With over a hundred different snack options, it’s hard not to find a great variety that you can’t wait to try out.  If you follow certain diets or have any food aversions, Graze helps you customize your box to your snacking needs.

Graze.jpg

I received a variety of the snacks I ranked highest on my “must try” list and I am incredibly surprised at just how delicious each snack was.  I went camping on the lake with my children and husband so these little snack packs came in very handy!  It was a great way to stay nourished without compromising my way of eating that was also super convenient.

PeanutButterDipper.jpg

Whether you’re craving sweet or savory, this snack is sure to satisfy.  Graze’s specially designed dipper punnet means that you can enjoy dunking dippers into peanut butter even when you’re on the go.  Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try drizzling your peanut butter over frozen yogurt and sprinkling crushed dippers on top!  These Protein Peanut Butter Dippers With Pretzel Sticks are a must!

EverythingBagel.jpg

If you’re like me you love a great everything bagel but don’t love all the calories that come along with it.  In this New York Everything Bagel snack pack, you’ll find a perfect blend of flavors at only 150 calories so you can feel good about the snack you’re indulging in.

StrawberriesAndCream.jpg

This Strawberries and Cream Protein Granola Topper was one of my favorite snacks included in my box.  It all started with creamy yogurt, tasty yet plain, waiting for the right topper to come along.  After some experimenting in the kitchen, Graze came up with a quick, easy way to make yogurt so much more exciting.  A new, tasty way to get a little extra protein into your diet.

sesameCrunchGarlic.jpg

Sesame Garlic Crunch was another one of my favorites, it is so tasty!  These sesame sticks are infused with garlic to create one of my favorite flavor combinations.  Graze’s taste experts then added soy-infused crackers made with oat bran for a tasty source of dietary fiber…what more could you ask for?

SaltedFudgePeanutCookie.jpg

Oh. Em. Gee.  This Salted Fudge And Peanut Cookie is delicious!  Salted caramel is one of the most famous flavor combinations and the sweet and salty taste has stood the test of time (so far)!  Graze deconstructed the salted fudge & peanut cookie to make a tasty Graze style snack.  The buttery flavor comes from creamy vanilla fudge sprinkled in with protein-boosting peanuts for an addicting salty twist.  And possibly the best part are the mini cocoa cookies!

PoppingCorn.jpg

The Lightly Salted Popping Corn is a perfect treat to settle down with.  Sometimes there’s nothing better than a bag of popcorn fresh out of the oven.  Graze’s popping corn has small pinch of salt and is a great source of fiber. At only 130 calories, it’s the perfect light snack whether you’re at your desk or in front of the TV.

GardenOfEngland.jpg

Garden Of England shows just how creative Graze can be.  They wanted to capture the feeling of summer in a snack and I think they did a delightful job.  This sweet, juicy mix is a huge summertime favorite and after just one bite you’ll see why.  The bright, juicy, fruity flavors pack a punch of taste your tongue will love.

SummerBerryFlapjack.jpg

Last, but not least, I also received Summer Berry Flapjack in my box and I’m so glad this one was included!  Flapjacks are a tasty treat that the Graze experts put a delicious berry twist on.  You’ve never tasted a snack like this before!  The Graze flapjacks are made by the White family from their own 30 year-old recipe.  These tasty treats are hand baked in small batches to prevent the rustic rolled oats from damaging, which is why Graze flapjacks are such a great source of fiber and taste truly homemade.

This summer is the perfect time to try Graze snacks!  See how good it feels to snack healthy and indulge without ruining that summer body you’ve worked so hard for!

Parish Parcel Cajun Curated Subscription Box #Review

Parish_Parcel_Logo_2_colorResize.png

If you haven’t heard of Parish Parcel yet, you’re missing the greatest thing you’ve never heard of.  They offer a variety of Cajun items in a monthly subscription box for Cajun lovers like me.  My oldest son and I LOVE Cajun food so getting to try a Parish Parcel box was like heaven delivered to my door.

ALouisianaBox.jpg

Each Parish Parcel box will contain 6-8 uniquely Cajun and authentically Louisiana made items to your door.  Included each month will be a taste of Louisiana, including; spices, apparel, food, art, music, recipes and Louisiana made merchandise.  The box that I received was FABULOUS!!

Coffee.jpg

One of my favorite items was the Chocolate Pecan Pie coffee from Acadian Coffee Roasters.  The aroma is reminiscent of a piping hot pie being freshly pulled from the oven at your Grandmother’s on Thanksgiving Day.  This coffee has a nice smooth, rich, and sweet flavor that will make your mornings deliciously better.

CookieCutter.jpg

The state of Louisiana cookie cutter I received is absolutely adorable!  Louisiana state colors are blue, white, and gold, so I figured what better way to ice these cookies than with Louisiana state pride?

CreoleSeasoning.jpg

Tony Chachere’s make a Creole Seasoning that is a great spice addition to just about anything.  Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning enhances the flavor of meats, seafood, poultry, vegetables, eggs, soups, stews, and salads – even barbecue and french fries!  Use it anywhere, any time, on any food.

DrinkCozy.jpg

The Parish Parcel drink cozy is great for keeping my drinks cool and sweat-free in this Arizona heat!

JambalayaHotSauce.jpg

The Walker & Sons Slap Ya Mama Cajun Jambalaya Mix and the Cajun Chef Hot Sauce paired perfectly together!  It was like having a little bit of Louisiana at home and it was DELICIOUS!

QueenOfBourbonCandle.jpg

Last but not least, the Bourbon Royalty Queen of Bourbon candle that was included in my Parish Parcel box.  The scent of this candle is out-of-this-world good.  This candle marries the bite of run with the sweetness of fruit.  For being a small sample of this candle, it still filled my home with an amazing scent.

If you or anyone you know LOVE everything Cajun, this box is a must-have!  It would make an amazing Christmas gift this year, or even just an anytime gift.  Product after product, you’ll develop a love and fondness for Louisiana.

Blue Apron Review

blue-apron-logo@2x-e88a5d59616ee9d85447839a90b8f9b0

Blue Apron is on a mission to change the way we cook.  The best tasting meals are the ones prepared with the freshest of ingredients, and Blue Apron has made that more simple than ever.  There are a few different options that you can sign up for depending on how many people you will be feeding.  No matter what meal size you choose, you will find a box filled with amazingly fresh ingredients accompanied with recipes to make meals you never imagined you would be making.

BlueApron1

I was so excited to see all of these fresh, vibrant, colorful ingredients when I opened my box.  Just smelling the fresh produce as I was unpacking it was enough to make my stomach growl. The meals I received were: Spicy Korean Chicken Wings with Rice Cakes and Baby Bok Choy, Catfish Piccata and Fresh Fettuccine with Verjus Blanc and Spinach, and Sumac-Spiced Steak and Honeynut Squash with Pickled Onioins and Apple-Walnut Salad.

BlueApron4 BlueApron5

The first thing I made were the Spicy Korean Chicken Wings with Rice Cakes and Baby Bok Choy.  I have to admit, I never in a million years pictured myself cooking with rice cakes, bok choy, or gochujang simply because I didn’t know how to use them.  I’m so glad Blue Apron sends such unique and different foods and teaches you how to use them.  I was pushed outside my comfort level and am SO glad I was.  The Spicy Korean Chicken Wings are by far the best thing I have ever tasted!

BlueApron3 BlueApron6

The Catfish Piccata and Fresh Fettuccine was a pleasant surprise.  I typically don’t like seafood unless it’s salmon, but this recipe made me see catfish in a whole new light.  The catfish was delicious and tasted extremely fresh.  The fresh fettuccine was the best pasta I’ve ever eaten…no more dry pasta for me!  All of the ingredients combined together made a dish that was spectacular.

BlueApron2 BlueApron7

Last, but most certainly not least, the Sumac-Spiced Steak and Honeynut Squash.  I would really love to meet the genius that put this meal together.  The way that all of these ingredients play off of each other and enhance the flavors of the whole dish is brilliant.  The apple-walnut salad with crumbled feta cheese was far better than I expected it would be, but I guess I should’ve expected that by now with Blue Apron.

I will say, the meals are a little time consuming to prepare, but they are every bit worth the time.  I’m a busy mom of 3, and I would gladly take the time out of my day to prepare anything Blue Apron could come up with.  I really love how the recipe cards come with the food.  After you’ve been introduced to new things, if you find you like them, now you have the recipe to guide you through making these dishes of perfection again and again.

For my readers who are interested in trying Blue Apron, my first 50 readers will get 2 meals free in their first box by clicking here, and clicking the orange “redeem offer” button 🙂

Love With Food Subscription Box Review

logo-990f64dc71f18a9d3f952a586d5029f7

Love With Food is one of my favorite subscription boxes available. Subscriptions start at $10 a month, and for each box sold, a meal is donated to a hungry child. So while you’re treating yourself to new and unique snacks, you’re also helping out someone else in return…what could be better?

Love With Food Box (1)

I am in love with the box I got! You can see there were many goodies packed into my little box. Good things come in small packages 🙂

Love With Food Box (2)

Up first is the Crave Canyon popcorn. The flavor is Aged White Cheddar & Hatch Green Chile. Oh. My. God. This stuff was amazing! It tied for favorite item of the box. I love the flavor, it’s so delicious I ate the whole bag in one sitting :/ . At least the calories are low enough that I didn’t feel too guilty.

Love With Food Box (3)

Sensible Foods Crunch Dried Fruit is actually something that I’ve had before and I was happy to see it in my box. I got the Orchard Blend which is super yummy.

Love With Food Box (4)

Fior di Frutta spread was amazing on a waffle 🙂 . Top with a dab of whipped cream, delicious!

Love With Food Box (5)

The Meli Honey Waffle was really good, just the packaging was in a foreign language and couldn’t decipher the nutrition info. Tasty product, but I’d love to know the nutrition facts of what I’m eating.

Love With Food Box (6)

Sahale Snacks Glazed Almonds were the other item in the box that tied for my favorite item. They were absolutely delicious and I couldn’t get enough. The ingredients are perfectly blended, and you’re going to want more, so if you guy these…buy a lot!

Love With Food Box (7)

The Vintage Bee Chocolate Mint honey stick was pretty delicious in some tea! I used it with the tea I also received in my Love With Food box and it was a perfect pairing with a delicious flavor twist on the tea.

Love With Food Box (8)

The gluten-free Bumble Bar was far better than I expected it to be. I love the little energy kick it gave me. I was able to power through the packing I was dreading terribly.

Love With Food Box (9)

The Wild Hibiscus Tea as I mentioned before was really good. I loved it paired with flavored honey for a natural flavor boost, and my own unique twist 🙂 .

Love With Food did it again, they made me fall in love with everything in my box, and I will be buying more 🙂

September MISTOBOX Subscription Box Review

misto box logo

MISTOBOX is a monthly subscription box that is perfect for any coffee lover. There are 2 different plans you can choose from: $19 a month and you’ll get 4 – 1.7 oz bags of coffee, or $30 a month for 4 – 3.4 oz bags of coffee. Each month there are 4 new coffees that are specially chosen from the country’s best roasters.

box
The box is really pretty! I couldn’t wait to get it open!

box open
And the anticipation builds! LOL

all 2
So…here they are! Once I opened my pretty box I found 4 bags of coffee just waiting to be ground and brewed.

I received:
Ethiopia Aricha from Ristretto Roasters in Portland, Oregon.
El Salvador Malacara B from Barefoot Coffee Roasters in San Jose, California.
Nicaragua Finca La Amistad from Panter Coffee in Miami, Florida
Colombia La Cristalina from Crema in Nashville Tennessee

All of the coffees were really delicious! They release such a beautiful aroma when the beans are ground and brewed. I love MISTOBOX for turning me on to coffees I didn’t even know were out there. If you’re a coffee lover like myself, this is a subscription box you can’t pass up.

Here’s how the value of the box breaks down:
Ethiopia Aricha – $2.55
El Salvador Malacara B – $2.55
Nicaragua Finca La Amistad – $2.98
Colombia La Cristalina – $2.27
Total Value – $10.35, I received the $19 per month box.

So…obviously not a money maker box, but I think it’s well worth it. The coffee was delicious and you get to experience a little bit of heaven from all over the country.
