SuperFood Snacks – Raw Chocolate Energy Nuggets review and giveaway

So much to say about SuperFood Snacks it’s hard to figure out where to start.  I guess I’ll start with the ethics and practices of this company.  They are a sustainable Superfoods company based in Hawaii on the island of Kauai.  They create organic snack foods with specialty ingredients and the use of superfoods. They use only high quality organic and fair trade ingredients.  They make use of ancient techniques of 5 element food combinations. That’s just the snack itself.

Superfood Snacks Raw Chocolate

They don’t stop there, the packaging also is thought out and green.  It’s the very first ever NatureFlex TM non-gmo that is 100% biodegradable and compostable material! I love a company make the decision themselves to do the right thing for our Earth. 

I had the opportunity to try their Raw Chocolate Sampler.  

I received the following varieties:
–Green Chocolate Dream– which contains Goji, Chlorella, Cacao, Clear Agave, Sunflower Seeds, and more all in one little nugget
–Chocolate Goji Treats — which contains Goji, Cacao, Clear Agave, Coconut, Walnuts, and more
–Chocolate Cherry Qi– which contains Cherries, Cacao, Clear Agave, Pumpkin Seeds, and more
–Brazilian Chocolate Ecstasy — which contains Brazil Nuts, Cacao, Clear Agave, Mango, Chia, and more
All varieties are Gluten free too!
These treats are supposed to be energizing, replenishing, and rejevenation and can be used as a meal replacement.  Each little portable packet contained 3 servings (one serving is 2 nuggets).  These little pouches are small enough to throw in your purse, backpack, or hide in your desk at work.  

I decided to stuff some in the diaper bag when my boys and I went to a race recently.  I knew the food there would be expensive.  This would be a good test of how filling they really are.

Ok so this is me chowing down on the Green Chocolate Dream, the first flavor I tried.  This isn’t chocolate like in a regular candy bar.  It’s raw organic chocolate.  the nuggets kind of reminded me of an organic granola bar in the texture and feel of them.  

All the nuggets have basically the same texture and consistency.  You can taste the flavors in each kind.   They’re actually pretty tasty, especially consider they’re a health food.  My favorite flavor was probably the Chocolate Cherry Qi.  

I ate 2 for breakfast this morning around 7:45 am.  I’m not a big breakfast eater.  But these were perfect for me.  I honestly did not feel hungry all morning.  Even at lunch time I wasn’t that hungry yet.  I’m likin’ these little nuggets.

Turn your memories into fun family time with Piczzle: review/giveaway

We all have a bunch of pictures.  Whether they’re kept in a scrapbook, a box, or all over the walls we have them.  Pictures are a great way to decorate and add warmth to you home. Pictures are memories that can be treasured for a long time.

Piczzle adds a fun and great way to use your pictures.  Piczzle offers picture puzzles in a number of sizes.  You can get them in a thick and sturdy cardboard or wood.  You can choose your picture puzzle is as few as 6 to as many as 2000 pieces.

These puzzles are very well made.  I received the cardboard version in 16 pieces.  Since I already owned one I decided to get one with my niece on it for my sister.  Which brings me to another point, Piczzle puzzles are a great gift idea for those that have everything.  Think how excited a grandparent would be to have a puzzle of their grandchildren.  Or maybe send one to someone you know in the military both for entertainment and for the picture aspect.  
This was the picture my sister chose for her puzzle.  I thought it would work quite well with all the cars and colors in the picture.  She chose 16 piece cardboard puzzle because she wanted her daughter to be able to help put it together with her.  Before I gave it to her, I had my 10 yr old son put it together to make sure all the pieces worked and fit properly.
My son had fun putting it together.  Of course, for a 10 yr old a 16 piece puzzle didn’t really challenge him but he loved helping with the review.
Look how great the puzzle turned out.  Looks just like the picture I uploaded to the site.  I just know my sister and my niece are going to love this.  
You can get your customized jigsaw puzzle from just almost any pic you can upload to their site.  Lots of sizes and even styles to choose from.  You can get puzzles with different borders and even different shapes if you like.  
Piczzle is social too.  Find them on Facebook:  and on Youtube
1 Luv Saving Money readers will win a small cardboard Piczzle puzzle 
in the design of their choice.

Win a cooler full of Wholly Guacamole products

Some of you may already know about Wholly Guacamole‘s awesome guacamole dips.  But did you know that they just introduced a salsa line in May?  Wholly Salsa hit shelves in May of this year (2012) with 8 different delicious flavors.

Wholly Salsa is made with ll natural ingredients.  They are free of preservatives and additives, fat free, gluten free, and Kosher certified.

Just look at all that yummy flavorful goodness!  The trouble we had was, where should we start.  My boys and I were eager to dive in.  We decided to try the Classic Mild and the Pineapple first.

I could not get over the flavor in the mild salsa.  It wasn’t spicy to me at all.  My 8 year old said it was a little spicy.  The pineapple salsa was a very interesting flavor.  Kind of reminded me of the similar idea of putting pineapple on a pizza.  It kinda had the pineapple, tomato, salty-like flavor like that.  My hubby about tore through the whole Guacamole & Spicy Pico flavor himself.  My sister stopped over and I offered her some.  She ate just about the whole container of Avocado Verde.  Each one that I tried had so much flavor.  The salsa did not taste like other shelf salsas I’ve tried from the grocery store.  Maybe it’s because each one is a chef inspired recipe.

Some of the other new flavors include Roasted Tomato, Red Pepper Mango, Classic Medium, and Classic Hot.

You can find the Wholly brand on twitter: @eatWholly
on facebook:
and on Pinterest:

When you visit their website you can also print off a $1.50 off coupon for their salsa.  When on their facebook page, don’t forget to enter the Build a Better Burger giveaway!

The Wholly brand is offering a generous giveaway to one lucky reader!


1 Luv Saving Money reader will win a cooler full of Wholly products

If the winner is Canadian, they will receive a coupon prize pack

Shabby Apple dress giveaway!

I did a post recently about a dress I picked out from Shabby Apple to wear to a July wedding.  Why did I turn to Shabby Apple?  First of all, I think they have beautiful clothing and jewelry.  I know that if I purchase something from Shabby Apple, it’s going to be well made, and something I’ll feel comfortable in.  In my opinion their clothing is classy, feminine, and beautiful without being too revealing.  Probably my favorite items to look at on is their selection of women’s dresses.

Here is a picture of me in the Shabby Apple dress I decided on for the July wedding I’m attending

This dress in particular is called “The Red Queen” available in the Mad Hatter collection.  I love the way it fits.  It has a lace overlay over the dress.  Light weight and comfortable.  I’m also wearing a necklace from Shabby Apple called “The Key to Wonderland” available under the jewelry tab on their site.  
I would recommend Shabby Apple to anyone in need of a dress for an event, date, or even everyday.  
You can find Shabby Apple on facebook and on twitter @ShabbyApple
