Mmmm! Mott’s Cinnamon Applesauce is amazing! It is my new favorite snack to have with my coffee – the flavors blend perfectly together! I take a bite of the applesauce, then a sip of my coffee, and perfection results.

Mott’s Cinnamon Applesauce is also convenient to eat as a snack since it comes in a snack pack with 6 individual cups.  Each cup equals one fruit serving and gives you 20% of your recommended vitamin C for the day.   It’s also fat, cholesterol and sodium free!

My mom and dad even enjoy them as snacks , as does my daughter19.   It’s really perfect for my dad who can only eat soft things.  Mott’s states that they hand pick their apples and make the applesauce from their special Mott’s family recipe.  That must be why it tastes so good.

I just know I love it with my coffee!

Product Review ~ St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Have I told you I am passionate about exfoliating?  Hmmm?  Well, it’s true, I am!  And St. Ives Swiss Formula Apricot Scrub totally fits the bill.  I love the stuff!  I love the smell!  To me, it’s kind of an apricot-grapefruit fragrance, very invigorating! 

St. Ives Apricot Scrub is made with pure swiss glacial water, swiss botanicals, and 100% natural exfoliants.  What could be better than that?  I keep it in the shower and use it everyday!  After cleansing my skin with my cleanser I squeeze out some of the scrub and massage my face, then rinse it away in the shower.  Nothing could be easier.  Truly.  My skin feels soft and clean and smooth and ready for the day. 

St. Ives Apricot Scrub is also dermatologist tested, oil free, and hypo-allergenic and I am also very pleased to tell you that the product was NOT tested on animals.   The great thing about St. Ives Apricot Scrub is, it’s cheap!  You can usually find it in your local grocery or drug store. 

St. Ives Apricot Scrub gently exfoliates and removes all those crusty dead skin cells that make our skin rough and clog up our pores.  It’s great to use it on other parts of my body as well – like arms, legs, and feet.  The dead skin cells wash down the drain, and you are left with glowing, soft skin.  Awww!  Just the way we like it!

 Allure Magazine even gave St. Ives Apricot Scrub the Readers Choice Award!  Well I’m sold, and I bet you will be too when YOU try it!

Product Review ~ Jolly Time Healthy Pop Butter Popcorn

This product review has moved to it’s own blog! Find more at: http://lauralovesbest.com

Pop! Pop! Pop! You listen for the microwave to make it pop and take it out before it stops!

Tonight as my daughter were heading out to watch the Fourth of July fireworks we decided to bring some snacks. I looked in the cupboard and remembered I had bought popcorn last time I was grocery shopping. In looking at all the popcorn it was hard to decide, but I’ve been very commited to health lately, so I decided to try the Jolly Time Healthy Pop Butter.

I popped it in the microwave and let it do it’s thing. It took about 2 minutes. Maybe could have gone a bit longer, but who wants to take the chance that it burns, burnt popcorn is the worst and it takes forever to get the smell out of your house! I was a little nervous to try it because sometimes the diet healthy stuff just doesn’t taste as good.

We drove to find a spot to watch the fireworks and found a place to put our blanket in the grass in between all the other people. Then we were ready to snack. Strangely, my daughter19 insisted on bringing grape jelly to dip the popcorn in. She said my mom, her grandmother, got her started on this odd habit. Funny thing is, I don’t remember my mom ever doing that with me? Oh well. So we broke out the popcorn and grape jelly and gave it a try. It was truly excellent. I didn’t miss anything. I had no idea it was healthy or diet. It was just good popcorn! My daughter19 concurred!

Jolly Time Healthy Pop Butter popcorn is 94% fat free, has 0g trans fat, and has no diacetyl added. I have no freakin idea what diacetyl is, but it doesn’t sound natural and I’m glad it’s NOT in my popcorn. As for calories, I cup of popped popcorn is only 20 calories, so take it from there depending on how many cups you want to eat. I love popcorn and can keep eating and eating it if it’s good, and this was. Especially dipped in grape jelly. Thanks Mom!

Product Review ~ Blueberry Muffin Frosted Mini-Wheats

This product review has moved to it’s own blog! Find more at: http://lauralovesbest.com

I haven’t seen them advertised, but then I’m not a BIG tv watcher. I dvr a lot of shows and zip through the commercials, so maybe I’ve missed it. But, as I went shopping on Saturday and strolled down the cereal aisle, there it was! Blueberry Muffin Frosted Mini-Wheats! Now I love blueberries, and blueberry muffins, so I had to try it!

Later that night I had to open up the box and try a few as a snack! Yes! They definitely have that blueberry muffin taste! They made a great crunchy snack. Now I’m eating them with milk. It just adds a creamy milk flavor to the blueberry muffin-ness of them. It slightly dilutes the flavor, but not in a bad way. They soften up in milk but still hold their shape. We all have heard how important fiber is to our diet, how it can lower cholesterol, well Mini-Wheats have plenty of fiber, that’s for sure!

If you are a blueberry fan, you’re going to love Blueberry Muffin Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal. I do! Great for a little snack, great for breakfast! Yummy in your tummy!
