This month’s info pamphlet.

Special bonus for this month: super cute gift tags that you can cut out and put on your gifts!

dsc_0443

Pillsbury Purely Simple White Cake Mix ($3.29) – Love this! I enjoy baking from scratch, but every once in a while, I like to cheat and use a box mix. 😉 I think I’ll use this for either… cupcakes or cake pops. Seriously, there’s just something addicting about boxed cake mixes from Pillsbury that I can’t stay away from. XD The best thing is that this is a white cake mix so you can add flavoring/extract to change it up! You could have also received chocolate cake mix.

Pillsbury Purely Simple Buttercream Mix ($1.99) – Perfect to go along with the white cake mix! And it’s super easy to make because you only have to add water and butter. You could have also received chocolate buttercream mix.

Good Thins in Sweet Oat and Flax ($3.69) – a light dusting of sweetness and then that unique cracker taste of a wheat thin with the added flavor and texture of flax seeds! So good and so much healthier than other crackers/snacks. These fill you up pretty quickly too! You can eat 21 pieces and it’s only 140 calories. I ate about 10 and already had my snack craving satisfied!

Kala Beautiful Beans Simply Peppered ($3.99) – I love roasted fava beans! I grew up eating ones that were garlic roasted in the shell and these are so reminiscent of them. I’m not a huge fan of pepper-flavored snacks, but I’ll overlook it because these fava beans are fantastic! They’re not oily and are so full of flavor and crunchy texture! I really want to try to find other flavors at a local grocery store. I gave this bag to my dad and he loved them!

Urbane Grain in Beef Burgundy ($2.99) – I think I actually saw these at a local supermarket but wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy one… and now I don’t have to! This is an awesome office lunch if you’re running short on time and just need a quick meal. It’s healthy (except for the 35% sodium nutrition fact), includes 7 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber (for this particular flavor). I haven’t had time to try it yet, but I’m actually very curious as to how this will taste!

Loacker Creme Noisette ($3.05) – These… These are also like crack. Holy crap. These are like ferrero rocher in rectangle form. THESE ARE AMAZING. The thin wafers, the creamy milk chocolate, the crunch of the pieces of hazelnut… I literally (yes, literally) consumed four, one after another, when I first opened this pack because they are crazy addicting. If you’ve never had ferrero rocher or these… I hope you’ve at least had Nutella before because these are basically hazelnut chocolate goodness. If these are only around $3.05 a box, I’d say that it’s a steal!

Loacker Cappuccino ($3.05) – I think I need to share these with my mom and my brother because they both love coffee and this will be a fantastic treat for them. If these are anywhere near as good as the hazelnut ones, they will be AMAZING.

dsc_0451

Ricola Herbal Immunity Honey Herb Supplement Lozenges with Ginseng  ($13.99) – These came at the perfect time! Everyone at work is getting sick and so I desperately need these to help stave off all illness and to stay healthy. You can kind of taste the ginger but the honey herb flavor is definitely strong enough to cover it! Super easy to eat and actually it’s a nice after meal “sweet”. XD

dsc_0453

Chips Ahoy Thins in Cinnamon Sugar ($3.79) – Oh my god. These things are like crack; they are SO GOOD and so freaking addicting. They taste like snickerdoodles and cinnamon toast crunch and cinnamon sugar crumble. When I ate my first one, I thought oh crap… oh crap, I’m going to eat this entire box of cookies because I’m not going to be able to stop. I highly, highly recommend going to buy these at your supermarket because… wow.

dsc_0454

Wise Popcorn in White Cheddar ($3.49) – I am a happy, happy person whenever there is cheese popcorn included… especially when it’s a huge bag that I can hoard all for myself! What’s different about this is that these kernels are air-popped and not oil-popped. These are light and wonderful and with just the right amount of cheese! You know how sometimes you eat popcorn and you bite down and there are hard bits of unpopped kernels that just ruin your day? That does not happen with these, which is amazing.

dsc_0456

Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Spread ($3.49) – I love Smucker’s! Their strawberry jam is my ultimate favorite and so I was super excited to receive the Strawberry Jalapeno spread even if I am a little apprehensive about the jalapeno part. XD It’s awesome that this is sweetened with honey so you’ll get an extra oomph of flavor. You could have also received the Concord Grape flavor.

dsc_0458

Honey Acres Honey Straws – I loved that they included an entire bundle of assorted flavors! I think these are fantastic to snack on if you’re wanting for something sweet or if you want a convenient “to-go” packet of honey for your oatmeal or yogurt. My favorite was probably the original because I’m just a boring traditionalist when it comes to honey. :p

dsc_0462

Overall enjoyment: I think I say this every month, but every month they blow me away with what they send out… so I’ll say it again this month: BEST MONTH EVER! I can honestly say that I will eat everything in this box. (and hehe, I have already eaten my way through a lot of this goodness!) My family has loved the snacks too. 😀
