New Activewear from Old Navy

Got my new compression activewear set from Old Navy, courtesy of Crowdtap.

The pants look and fit amazing! I wish I could wear them all day :) They are nice and smooth, don't bunch up or stretch to much, and are not too tight - just perfect. The compression tank works wonders: not only it is slimming, it also makes me keep my back straight and that's the only thing that can keep me from slouching! My hubby says I look a couple of inches taller, a couple of inches thinner and a whole lot happier :)

Yummy Earth Organic Lolipops - 5 lbs for $13.xx shipped!

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 :))

Convenience Stores Sweet and Salty Snacks Review and Giveaway

With three kids and lots of extracurricular activities, we find ourselves snacking a lot whether on the go or waiting for the kids... or just because :) I was super excited to when MyBlogSpark and General Mills offered us to review new snacks that recently became exclusively available at convenience stores nationwide.
We received a box filled with the following goodies:
  • Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate: An indulgent cereal bar that combines the great taste of Cocoa Puffs cereal and chocolate into one decadent treat, Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate is perfect for satisfying any sweet tooth.
  • Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars: If you want the best of both worlds, give Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars a try. These bars mix dark chocolate pieces, oats and crisp rice nuggets for a classic crunch and burst of whole grain goodness, making them a perfect natural snack that’s high in fiber and protein, but low in saturated fat.
  • Bugles Hot Buffalo: Need something salty with a bit of a kick? Look no further than Bugles Hot Buffalo Crisp Corn Snacks, which blends the taste of hot buffalo sauce with crispy corn Bugles.
While the hot stuff - Bugles Hot Buffalo - was too hot for my taste (and I didn't offer them to kids), my hubby loved every bit of them. Chocolate stuff was for the ladies in the house and Cocoa Puffs treats quickly became Victoria's and Nicole's favorite. I was lucky enough to snatch one of the Nature Valley oats and dark chocolate bars to work and it made a prefect mid-afternoon snack: wholesome, delicious, filling and giving the energy to get through the rest of the day :)

To celebrate the appearance of these new products in convenience stores all over the country, MyBlogSpark and General Mills are giving away a prize package to one of my readers. Here's what you'll get if you are the lucky winner (thanks to Crystal R. for the picture):

All you need to do is leave me a comment with your favorite snack. For an extra entry, blog or tweet about this giveaway and leave a separate comment with the link.

The giveaway is open until Wednesday, May 26th.

Thank you and good luck!
