Trying Out Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs With #MomsMeet

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

As a member of Moms Meet, I was able to try out Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs. These hotdogs are America's #1 meatless hot dog that are plant based and grilled ready, looking exactly like a real hot dog! Only instead of being made with meat, these little guys are made with soy protein and other plant-based ingredients, holding 7 grams of protein and 50 calories per link. They are also certified vegan and Non-GMO Project Verified. So everyone can enjoy a good hotdog bbq!


We had a lot of fun trying out Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs. They were new for us to try, and though they would have been amazing on the grill, I fried them up on the stove top, to give them that charred look and taste. I was shocked at how much these look like the real meaty hotdogs, although the skin of them felt like an odd rubbery texture and reminded me of playdough lol. The taste wasn't horrible, I actually found them to be pretty decent. Really great for those that choose to not eat meat... Though, I prefer the real deal. I tried the veggie hotdogs topped with ketchup and mayo, but found they were much better disguised in all those pickles and onions. It was a lot of fun trying a new food, and I'm looking forward to trying all the other Lightlife products! 


You can find the Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs available for purchase in the refrigerated section of your local grocery stores, at a retail price between $2.99-$3.99 a pack. Visit lightlife.com to use their Where To Buy locator to find your nearest store for purchase.

Trying Mott’s New 100% Apple Cherry Juice

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

As a member of Smiley360, I was able to try Mott's newest 100% juice in the flavor Apple Cherry.
This juice is made from concentrate with added ingredients including 120% DV Vitamin C, with 2 servings of fruit per 8fl oz cup, and it is sugar and gluten free.

I have really enjoyed trying Mott's Apple Cherry Juice! I have always loved Mott's juices but their new Apple Cherry is probably my all time favorite. It has the perfect amount of Cherry taste without having the Apple overpower, and it's great to drink as is or in a smoothie! Plus you get 2 servings of fruit per 8fl. oz. glass, how great is that?!? One thing I find to be an issue with most juices though, is how sweet it is. I found Mott's Cherry juice to be extremely sweet so it needs to be watered down 50/50 anytime it's drank. Which is odd since no sugar is added! I would love to see their future juices to be less sweetened. Overall, this is my new favorite Mott's Juice and one my whole family can enjoy!

You can find Mott's Apple Cherry Juice available in your local Target stores.

Saving Space With SpaceSaver Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

    If you are in need of some organizing in your home, maybe gaining more space in your storage closet for your blankets or pillows, or packing away clothes for the next season, the SpaceSaver Premium Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags would be perfect for you! These storage bags reduce the volume of your materials by 80%! Think of all that extra space you're saving! Plus they keep out any unwanted odors, insects, dirt, dust, water, and mildew so your clothes will be just as they were when you placed them into the bags. The storage bags are available in a range of sizes,. but these Jumbo packs are perfect for storing blankets and pillows...so many options and so much space saved, perfect for every home!


I can't get over how amazing of a creation this is. I remember always seeing commercials for a product like this that shrinks your blankets and clothing so you have more space in your closet, but I was always really skeptical about how it worked. These jumbo bags are just as they say, JUMBO. They are huge! I experimented a little with space saving to see how much I could fit and was pleasantly surprised with the amount. My first time trying the storage bags, I decided to try just two blankets: a comforter and a quilt. But once I got them in the bag, I thought surely it could hold more, so I added another comforter and got to vacuuming. I tried the included pump to suck the air out but this was going to take FOREVER, so I just used our vacuum hose and it was done within seconds. I was amazed at how well this worked! It's just like on TV lol. The only difference was that the edges on mine start to go up, instead of laying flat. Not sure why this is... But then my husband wanted to give it a try. He folded up 8 of his winter coats and placed them in a jumbo bag. Started the vacuuming process and low and behold, a TON of space was saved. This is so great for storing away Summer/Winter clothes when not being used. I am an organize freak, and surprised I haven't gotten this product sooner. I love everything about it, because it allows more room in a closet or storage space, while keeping the same amount of stuff.

 
This is definitely a product I recommend, perfect for organizing, moving, or packing to travel. 
You can find the SpaceSaver Premium Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags available for purchase on Amazon in a pack of 10 for $35.99 and it comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Trying New Products With Influensters Sprout Vox Box

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

    As an Influenster, I was chosen to receive the Sprout Vox Box to review. In my box I received: a sample of Orgain Organic Protein Powder, an Ecos Laundry Detergent sample, Hair Food Moisture Collection Sample, a bag of Eatsmart Chips, and a Curate Bar!













Out of all of these products to test, my top favorite was the Eatsmart chips. These chips are a healthy take on snacking, made with ingredients such as garlic, peppers, and three beans such as Pinto, Navy, and Black beans. I received the Garlic Hummus Tortilla Chips for my review and they were great! Each bite had a nice crunch with just the right amount of seasoning. The grains these chips are made with taste delicious! They are healthy and make a great snack. They also include 14 grams of whole grains and they are non-gmo and gluten free. They run at about $3.99 a bag. You can find them on Facebook and Twitter. #eatsmart

My next favorite product in this box would be Curate Bars. I received the Dark and Tempting flavor, made with Balsamic Vinegar, Mission Figs, Hazelnuts, Sunflower Kernels, Orange, and Quinoa. These bars are packed full of nutrients using real ingredients to make nutritious snacking. They remind me of a fig newton Cookie, only filled with many more things that are good for you! They are great for snacking on the go, and something you can share with your whole family, and feel good about it! A single bar retails $1.89 each, or $6.49 for a 4 count carton. You can find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. #tastecurate

Next I enjoyed the Ecos Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent sample. This detergent is made of high quality ingredients, with their signature scent being Magnolia & Lily. It was developed with plant-derived ingredients and contains built in fabric softener to freshen your clothes and save you money. I enjoyed the scent of this soap, although I wish it lingered on my clothes. I love that this detergent is made with plant derived products and contains built in fabric softener to help  you save money! And their signature scent sounds beautiful "Magnolia & Lily", but I'm a little sad that I can't smell the scent on my clothing after washing. I understand more natural soaps don't hold the scent, but I love smelling clean detergent on my clothing. Other than that, this soap gets my clothes clean and it's better for us! This detergent has a retail price of $7.25 for a 50oz. bottle, %10.15 for a 100oz. and $16.90 for a 170oz. You can fin them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. #ECOS

After a good workout, I enjoyed the Orgain Organic Protein Powder in the flavor of Vanilla Bean. I added it into a banana peanut butter smoothie and it tasted delicious. The only thing I didn't like is it left my smoothie slightly chalky, but it wasn't too bad so I could easily look past that. This protein powder is plant based, USDA Organic, Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free, and non-gmo. It retails for $23.99 for 1lb. of powder. You can find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. #WhatWeGain

The last item in my Vox Box was the Hair Food Moisture Collection. This product is designed to soothe dry hair by adding in hydration and shine. It contains honey essences to revitalize your hair giving it moisture and nourishment for healthier hair. I enjoyed trying out this sample, and they both had a great smell. They left my hair feeling soft and clean with no heaviness, but a little frizz. This shampoo is free of silicone's, parabens, mineral oil, with the conditioner being free of parabens and mineral oils also. This products retails at $9.99 a bottle. You can find Hair Food on Twitter. #HairFood


Out of all these products, which would be the one you would most like to try?

I have enjoyed testing out another fun Vox Box of Influenster products! Until next time!

Cooling Off With Santa Cruz Agua Fresca Juices & More! #MomsMeet #KeepOnCruzin

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

As a member of MomsMeet, I was able to try a few of the Santa Cruz Organic Products. I received 2 bottles of Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca juices in the flavors Mango Passionfruit and Pomegranate; A box of Santa Cruz Organic Apple Sauce, coupons, and a Santa Cruz Cup Tumbler. I was very happy to be able to try and share these juices with my family, as they are made with 100% organic fruit juices or fruit puree and water, as well as being gluten and GMO free.

In trying the Santa Cruz Agua Fresca juices, I liked the Mango Passion fruit best! It has a sweet flavor of passion without overpowering the mango. It is a juice I can drink daily and feel happy about it. The Pomegranate flavor was good, but slightly more watery than the Mango Passion fruit. Both of these juices are great for quenching your thirst on a hot day. They make great smoothie bases as well! Something the whole family will love!

In trying the Santa Cruz Organic Apple Sauce pouches. I was so pleased with these, my first time having apple sauce in a pouch and it was delicious! They are so easy to grab from the fridge, open up and enjoy, great for on the go or if you're short on time. Their flavors are one of the best apple sauces I have tasted. An interesting thing I found, and oddly loved, was that each time I had a new pouch, the first slurp had a stew like taste. It is hard to explain but I really liked that. I think I was tasting the realness these pouches contain, unlike other apple sauces out there.

I have enjoyed trying Santa Cruz products and will continue to share these with my family! The Santa Cruz Agua Fresca Juices are available in three different flavors: Mango Passion fruit, Pomegranate, and Grapefruit. They come in 32oz. bottles and retail between $3.20 and $3.49. Check your local grocery stores to try out Santa Cruz products for you and your family!
