Review: Aero Bar ROUND 2


A few months ago I posted about a chocolate Aero bar that I tried. Lisa a follower on my blog talked about the peppermint aero bar. I hadn’t seen it. I went to the store today and guess what they had!!!! THE PEPPERMINT AERO! I bought it, specifically because Lisa told me to try it! I love it! I hated the other one, but this one is so perfect! The peppermint is NOT over powering. It’s airy and very creamy. It may just be one of my new favorites. Thanks Lisa…and if any of you haven’t tried this- go buy it…try it!

Review: Koala’s March


I really like another brand similar to these SO MUCH. I find it hard to resist them, but the downfall is I can only find the brand I really like at two stores. One is Target which is 40 minutes away and the other is BI-LO which I never go to. I found these thinking these would be similar but they aren’t. Honestly, I like them, but they’re just not my thing. The inside is indeed the texture of a chocolate bar. The outside cookie part is good. It’s not overly sweet. The chocolate one is very sweet. Just being honest, I doubt I’ll buy these again. It’s just not my cup of tea.

Review Puchao


I already told everyone my obsession with our international aisle. I found these. I thought they’d be a little more different than they are, but they’re good. My favorite is the grape and mango. They really do taste good. It’s a little bit like starbursts. I think it’s a little bit pricey for the amount you get, but I also feel like considering it’s a Japanese import that it’s not so bad. I will buy these again, but it probably wont be a regular purchase in my home! If you try these let me know what you think!

Review: Casino Bakery Cuban Bread

We don’t get to go to Tampa, FL as much as we’d like, but anytime we do, hubby insists on bringing home some Cuban bread. This is something his family adores! Cooper isn’t as crazy about Cuban sandwiches as Michael, but he loves a good grilled piece of Cuban Bread and a bowl of Spanish bean soup. We’ve tried a few different bakeries in Tampa, but this is by far the favorite one. We’ve had some Cuban families come here in our area and they use this same bakery to get food from. Also, we’ve had some families try to make this bread here. Unfortunately, this just isn’t something you can make here. I had one person tell me, from my favorite Cuban restaurant here that it doesn’t work because of altitude. I don’t know about all that jazz, but all that matters to me is getting a yummy piece of Cuban bread…and this is my preference. It freezes well and lasts 3-6 months in the freezer with no issues.

Review: Sam’s Choice Italia


I had high hopes for this, because I LOVED the risotto that I made from the same brand. However, this isn’t the case. It tastes just like pasta roni.  I probably wont buy it again, my homemade alfredo is better. This seems to still have a powdery texture. It also doesn’t even have any kind of cheese taste that you get from the parmesan in regular alfredo sauce. In a pinch though, this is a more economical brand to buy. It would be the reason I purchased it. Sometimes you just need something and you’re running out of time. I really like to not let all the liquid out, because it becomes really dry if, really quick. It also helps to add a little parmesan into it. It is decently creamy if you do these steps. Like I said, if I’m in a pinch, I’ll make it again. Otherwise, it just wasn’t my favorite….I was a little disappointed.

Review: Kedem Grape Juice


I first purchased this in December to go with our Bethlehem dinner.  I actually wish this juice wasn’t so expensive. It’s literally the only downfall I have. If you look at the bottom of the bottle it says no sugar, coloring, or flavoring added. I adore this statement. When we’re talking about my child, these are the things that make me purchase. It’s Kosher. I like this too, but it’s not a deal breaker for me. Whatever grapes they use are amazingly sweet. I expected a bit of a bite with the juice, but there’s not. It’s just perfect grape juice. Give this a try! It’s fantastic!

Review Maltesers


We love to go down the international aisle. This was a find this week. It’s made by Mars company. It’s a British made confectionary. Of all the stuff I’ve bought in the past, this is one of my favorites. I’m pretty odd about candy, so if I say I like it, you know it’s good.  LOL. Anyway, It’s sort of like Whoppers, but the chocolate has a different creaminess which I love. The middle just melts away in your mouth. I don’t really have any negative’s too say. What negative things can you say about chocolate? Yes, that’s exactly what I thought. None! If you see this at your store, try it out, it’s good!
