Yup! Another box came in!
I'm not sure who get's more excited, me, the kid or the cat, who tries to snag the pretty paper
(well, she DID have a fight for it this month-Miss Grace needed the blue for her solar system model, for her science project!) ! LOL
I love how the Daily Goodie Box comes in an EASY open box AND everything is contained in pretty paper, so it really is like getting your own handpicked present, all year long!
Just look at THIS month's box:
Let's start with the food, as it's usually super!
Crunchmaster - Multi-Seed Crackers, Original Flavor: Same brand, but the original flavor, this was a partial carryover from last month! Packed with toasted seeds (sesame, quinoa, flax and amaranth) and lightly seasoned with a wheat free tamari soy sauce, these are snacking crackers, and also are great for dipping with natural cheeses and dips during the holiday season. They are 100% Whole Grain, cholesterol free, Certified Gluten Free, contain No added sugar, are Vegan/Dairy Free and are
Bits'y Brainfood - Orange Chocolate Beet Smart Cookies - well looks like the food is going to be hit and miss this month. Neither Miss Grace or I liked these, but a friend's 14 month old thought they were da bomb as a teething cracker. Made with whole grains and organic beets, they are high in Vitamins A, B12, B6, D3, and Folic Acid, as well as a good source of Calcium and Iron. Making them a great treat for the younger set, especially since they are in cut-out alphabet shapes that make learning fun! They are USDA Organic, Kosher, Non GMO, and made in a peanut free factory.
Quest Nutrition - Cinnamon Cereal Protein Bar - Regular cereal is made from grains. BEYOND cereal is made from protein! The Quest “Beyond Cereal” Bar has all the sweet, comforting crunch of a junk food cereal bar, but with the incredible nutritional profile you know you can expect from Quest. It’s a bar for the kid in all of us who loves cereal, It is the first Quest product made with Allulose, a revolutionary sweetener found in nature that offers all the taste and texture of traditional sugar, but with only 1/10th of the calories! Miss Grace and I both enjoyed this bar- it was tasty, filling and gave her energy for dance class! This bar went onto the 'buy again' list!
Protes Vegan Chips - Spicy Chili Lime- High in protein, these Vegan chips are low carb, low fat, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Made from Pea Protein and sunflower oil, these are a healthy snack alternative. They come in 5 flavors. This flavor has a splash of citrusy goodness paired with a nice spicy kick of chili! I have to admit I am NOT a chili lime girl, but neither was anyone else who sampled the pack. unfortunately. these got a very high thumbs down from everyone- they were just too bland. But for those on special diets and allergies, they might just be the snack you're looking for.
Luckily Miss Grace was kept from complaining about the food selection, thanks to this snack:
Darrell Lea - Strawberry Flavor Liquorice - open this bag up and you'd swear you were standing in a field full of strawberries! This Australian (!!) licorice is soft, amazingly yummy and filling! You only need a couple of pieces before you're ready to hide the rest from the fam (which the kid did)! Another old secret, this candy company has been making licorice since 1927! Available in 6 yummy fruit and traditional flavors, this soft licorice is a delight, and perfect for the candy lover!
Älsa - Energy Drink Mix- This one also repeated over, but from last month's box. It is a healthy energy drink mix, Älsa is smarter, steady energy with Cognizin citicoline for mental clarity and PURENERGY for a long-lasting boost. It comes in three vegan and gluten-free flavors: Dragon Fruit, Pomegranate Blueberry, and Three Citrus. I'd like to say it was yummy, but both Miss Grace and I had the same reaction to it. It may have given us energy, but the taste? UGH. Note sure if it was the Yerba Mate or the citicoline, but neither of us could handle more than a sip or two, when added to water. When I added it to a smoothies, we got about half drank, before giving up on the taste. But if you can handle that, it does give long lasting energy.
The Chia Co - Chia Shots 10 Pack-It's recommend that you have one tablespoon (half a pack) of chia, every day for its omega 3, fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals . Black and white chia seeds are nutritionally identical, the only difference being the seed coat colour. This 10 pack gives you 5 of each color, in easy to travel packets, for healthy eating on the go. Sprinkle onto your muesli or cereals, into your salads or smoothies, or add to your baking. Were not huge Chia fans, but these do taste decent and if you are looking for a way to add some punch to your new year dieting, these packs are a way to go.
DudeProducts - Quick DUDE Shower Wipes- when you have a kid that has an active dance class, early on a Saturday morning, you KNOW about body wipes! Access to a shower is not always a realistic option after every awesome, stanky, or sweaty situation. So now it’s time to embrace those moments. The DUDE Shower gives you a fast and effective way to remove the stank and stay fresh on-the-go.Made without perfumes, these wipes give you a CLEAN scent and a clean body! Miss Grace was impressed with both their size, thickness,and how well they refreshed and made her feel like she's actually showered after a sweaty dance class. I like how they are alcohol free, and have aloe and vitamin E, making them great for all skin types. They comes in single packs of 10, or an 8 pack dispenser pack. These are going on the 'to buy' list too!
SmartyPants - Adult Probiotic Complete-SmartyPants Adult Probiotic Complete comes in two delicious flavor options, Blueberry and Lemon Creme. We were sent the Blueberry- I would definitely pass on it and head toward the lemon- it was TOO strong of a flavor! But the probiotics are vegetarian, contain no synthetic colors or artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or any other junk, so they are VERY good for you. Each serving of 2 gummies delivers 7 BIllion CFU - Seven Times More Beneficial Bacteria than leading probiotic gummies. The DE111 strain in SmartyPants has even been clinically proven to help break down dietary fats and carbohydrates, and maintain healthy levels of cholesterol, glucose, and triglycerides - all of which help support metabolism function and easy weight management. Probiotics need food to thrive too, so SmartyPants Adult Probiotic Complete also includes Wellmune a patented pre-biotic fiber that strengthens your immune system and acts as an ideal food to feed the probiotic bacteria!
SmartyPants Adult Probiotic Complete includes only soil-based probiotic bacteria in spore-form that are naturally microencapsulated, which protects them from harsh stomach acids and changing conditions. It also ensures that 99% of the Probiotics ACTUALLY reach your digestive tract ALIVE, where they can grow, flourish, multiply, and help you! Did you know that most probiotics that contain billions of CFU (and need to be refrigerated), do not use spore-form bacteria? Research shows that that means only 1% of those unprotected bacteria survive long enough to make it to your gut and deliver any benefit. Which basically means you wasted your money! So these are a GREAT alternative! Just get the lemon flavor!
