We have got YummyEarth Organic Lollipops twice in the past, and I can tell you: these are much better than DumDums or other pops that are loaded with artificial ingredients and stain kids' mouths for days and give them nothing but sugar high! YummyEarth Organic Lollipops are all natural, full of flavor and ARE yummy! A little package of those retails for $4.99 at Trader Joe's so a huge 5 lb bag for $13.xx at Amazon is a steal! (Think Halloween!)
Here's what Amazon lists as product features:
# about 325 pops (based on weight - individual pops weight may vary)
# Mix of Sour Apple Tart, Pomegranate Pucker, Mango Tango, TooBerry Blueberry, Googly Grape, Strawberry Smash, Very Very Cherry, Wet-Face Watermelon
# Organic; allergen-free; gluten-free; GMO-free; egg-free; soy-free; nut-free; casein-free; dairy-free
# All-natural: fruit extracts; red cabbage and purple carrots for color; no artificial dyes or flavors
# Certified kosher by the Kof-K Kosher Certification
Right now you can get them for $13.xx shipped (make sure you select 'Subscribe and Save' option that gives you 15% instant savings and FREE shipping. You may cancel your subscription at any time, but this is actually the only subscription that I do keep at Amazon: we have these lollipops delivered every six months -- just about when we start running low :))

MomSelect and Hallmark had sent me Rainbow Brite activity CDs with games, puzzles, a picture maker, coloring pages, the Rainbow Brite theme song - for my daughters to enjoy and for me - to give away! We got the CDs just before the major snowstorms, so the timing could not have been better: my daughters (a third grader and a preschooler) spent hours playing with Rainbow Brite and enjoyed the activities offered on the CD.
Now you can too! I'm giving away 5 of the CDs on February 28th. All you have to do is leave me a comment until then. :) The winners are selected at random.
Meanwhile, you can go to Rainbow Brite website and see what the buzz is all about and don't forget that you can find Rainbow Brite products at Target and Toys'R'Us (in case your kids start bugging you to get the actual dolls like mine do :))

MyBlogSpark has provided me with 4 VIP coupons for free boxes of General Mills cereals of our choice so that we could see if we can taste and feel the difference. We love cereal in the morning: it's fast, easy and nutritious breakfast that makes life with three kids a little easier :) And hey, did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children´s diets. Cereal Health and Wellness is a good resource to learn more ;)
We have used three of the VIP coupons and purchased our favorites: Cinnamon Toast Crunch for hubby and me, Cocoa Puffs for Vicki and Nicki and Banana Nut Cheerios for Mark. We did a "blind test" but frankly couldn't taste the difference: we got the same great taste that we know and love.
Right now you can save $1 off your favorite General Mills cereal here, and I will send our fourth VIP coupon for a FREE box of any General Mills cereal to one of you to help you start your morning juuuust right - with a bowl of your favorite yummy cereal. Just leave me a comment :)
The winner will be randomly selected a week from today, on Friday, Jan. 29th
