Airborne Review via Smiley360

Posted on

I applied for the Airborne mission via Smiley360 awhile ago and was not initially chosen to participate but at some point they needed to fill more spaces so they asked me to join. Between the holidays and my dog’s surgery I’ve been quite busy so I never got a chance to share that I was on a mission with the Airborne product. šŸ˜¦

Each person participating had a chance at receiving 1 of 3 products from Airborne. I received a bottle of 32 chewable tablets in the berry flavor.

In the past I have only used Emergen-C products. (Jen scored some super hot deals on Emergen-C awhile ago but has handed her entire inventory over to me because she hates the taste. lol) I, on the other hand, like Emergen-C but it has been the only type of product of its kind that I have tried. Plus, I have only used it in liquid form so I was excited to try something different.

I am overall very pleased with this product. I like the taste and I find that the chewable form is a lot more convenient than mixing a powder with water. I can throw these tablets in my purse and chew them on the go if need be.

They claim to “help support your immune system” though in their disclaimer they that state that the FDA has not evaluated this claim and Airborne is not intended to “diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease”. So based on that it is pretty hard to determine if this type of product actually benefits the immune system. It may be a classical case of mind over body? I alsoĀ don’t care for the fact that the product contains artificial ingredients such as Red 40 and Blue 1.

At any rate, I would buy this product in the future. Of course, it would have to be for a great price that I scored with sales and coupons. šŸ˜‰

f’real milkshake review

Image Posted on Updated on

I received my f’real milkshake kit a few weeks back from Smiley360 and I decided today that I would stop at my local Sheetz gas station to pick one up.

My husband and I have purchased these particular milkshakes in the past so I pretty much knew what to expect.Ā Instead of ordering Ā and having an attendant make the milkshake, you approach a blending bar that assists you. First you choose which flavor you want. There is the typical strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla but then there is also flavors like mint chip and cookies and cream. But you are not limited to just shakes. You can also get smoothies and frozen cappuccinos.

You next remove the lid from the cup and place it in the metal milkshake cup holder. Then choose which thickness you would like. I went for the normal thickness but you can also get thicker or smoother. Hit start on the blender and then after about 30 seconds to 1 minute, your milkshake is ready to drink. It may sound a little intimidating but it is real simple and each machine has a screen that walks you through every step.

An up close look at the flavors..yum!

I ended up picking the mint chip and shared it with my two year old son. We both enjoyed it. (I don’t think I have ever had a milkshake I didn’t like. šŸ™‚ ) I liked how the chocolate chips seemed to be distributed evenly throughout the entire milkshake and not just in spots. I also chose the normal thickness even though at times I felt the shake was a little thicker than I like. My husband picked out the strawberry flavor. I sampled it and also thought it was pretty good.

At my local Sheetz, the f’real shakes retail for $2.79 and once mixed, contain 16 oz. of liquid and I actually didn’t finish all of my shake but put it in the refrigerator to save for later.

Review: Arm & Hammer Sensitive Toothpaste

Posted on Updated on

Update: There is a new mission for Arm & Hammer sensitive toothpaste. Sign up or log in to see if you qualify. Below is the review I did when I was completing the mission a few weeks ago.Ā 

ARM & HAMMERā„¢ Advance Whiteā„¢ Sensitive with Whitening

I recently had the opportunity to try the Arm & Hammer sensitive toothpaste when I was accepted for a mission through Smiley360. If you are unfamiliar with Smiley360, check it out here.

Initially, I was not fond of the taste but quickly got use to it. What I like best about this particular toothpaste is that it leaves a fresh taste in my mouth long after I brush my teeth. I occasionally suffer from sensitive teeth but my husband has sensitivity quit often. Once he tried the toothpaste he noticed a considerable difference after about 1 week. I usually get toothpaste for free with coupons and probably haven’t bought any in a few years but I would pay for this toothpaste. That says a lot!

Food Should Taste Good brand review

Posted on Updated on

food should

Here is my little back story.

I wasĀ initiallyĀ introduced to Food Should Taste Good chips when I signed up to receive a free bag of their sweet potato tortilla chips. After trying my sample, I was so excited about how they tasted, I found them on facebook to tell them about my experience.

One sample bag was not enough so I was eager to find them in a local store. After looking in three different retailers, I decided that maybe they hadn’t yet made it to my neck of the woods šŸ˜‰

But I am the type of person that when I find a product that I love so much, I like to share my experience with everyone.Ā I decided to contact Food Should Taste GoodĀ and ask them if they would be willing to send us samples so we could do a review on our blog. They happily agreed. And even better while waiting for the samples to arrive, I found this free standing display in my local Marc’s store, which is located in Northeastern Ohio.

Here is what we received from Food Should Taste Good.

When we first tried the sweet potato tortilla chips, we were pleasantly surprised. They tasted like Sun chips and the sweet potato taste was not too bold. We love sweet potatoes so we were not bothered by the fact that they were sweet potato flavored. If you are not a sweet potato fan, don’t let that scare you away from trying them.

The lime and blue corn tortilla chips are also equally very tasty. We love chips that have a lime flavoring and these chips have that. The taste is not too over powering. It is subtle but rather refreshing. The blue corn chips have just the right amount of flax seed and sea salt and would pair nicely with salsa but it isn’t necessary.

We weren’t Ā fans of the original sweet potato chips. We think because it has the texture of a potato chip, we wanted it to taste more streamline with what other typical potato chips taste like. With that being said, we do really like that there are only three ingredients; sweet potatoes, sunflower oil, and sea salt.

Taste is not the only thingĀ importantĀ to us. Ingredients and price are also a key factor in what determines if we will buy a product.

Fortunately, their products are gluten free, certified vegan, certified kosher, do not contain cholesterol,Ā trans fats, msg,Ā artificialĀ colors, flavors or preservatives. They are also low in sodium, all natural, and a good source of fiber.

The ingredient list on all the chip bags are very short, only containing about a half dozen to one dozen ingredientsĀ each. This is usually a good sign when shopping for natural snack foods. The only concern we have is that some of the tortilla chips may contain canola oil. We try to steer away from that and purchase items made with olive oil but overall we were pretty pleased with theĀ ingredients.

The price of these tortilla chips is also very reasonable. We were able to snag a 4.5 oz of chips for $1.99 and recently we signed up for the Food Should Taste Good enewsletter, earning us a $1 off coupon. Ā A great deal for only .99 a bag.

Overall, we are really pleased with these chips and plan on buying some other flavors we haven’t tried yet. If you find them in your local store, we recommend picking up a bag or two!
