Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate Review

Cozy up from the cold this holiday season with the sumptuous taste of Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate. A world leader in Organic and Fair Trade chocolate, Green & Black’s has transformed your favourite holiday comfort food into indulgent, sophisticated fare. From Chocolate Pecan Pie, to rich Chicken Mole, or a chocolaty twist on classic Egg Nog, these new recipes are designed to warm you from the inside and delight your taste buds.

image001

We love our sweets and that definitely includes chocolate! Dark chocolate isn’t a big favorite here but Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate has changed our minds! With their name symbolizing the strict organic standards they have and the intensity of their chocolate plus the fact that they’re a fair trade company. What’s not to love?

 

These tasty bars come in many delicious flavours. The ones we were asked to review are:

 

  • Maya Gold: Rich dark chocolate with a twist of orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and just a hint of vanilla. Based on a traditional, spiced-chocolate drink from Belize, We’re proud to say Maya Gold was awarded with the U.K.’s first Fair trade mark in 1994.maya
  • Toffee: delectable, buttery, smooth and crunchy organic toffee is made with a combination sugar, butter and molasses to create the perfect flavorful blend. This full, concentrated flavor allows the crunchy toffee pieces to punch their way through our intense 34% cocoa-rich milk chocolate beautifully!toff

 

  • Milk Chocolate: creamy, sweet & savory. Rich in both cocoa and milk, they created a Milk Chocolate that balances the intensity of the cocoa with the relative sweetness of the milk.milk
  • Ginger: 60% dark chocolate crystallized Chinese ginger. At first, the fiery, spicy, crystallized Chinese ginger stays locked away inside the 60% dark chocolate. But, as it melts, a hint of ginger finds its way to your palate. It’s a neat little party trick that’s fun to try again and again.  gin
  • White: (When it comes to white chocolate, I am very picky. I must say that this nailed it, so smooth and delicious, I am sure you will love it too). Made with cocoa butter & Organic milk with a blend of Madagascar vanilla. Cocoa butter, pressed from crushed cocoa beans, and organic whole milk give our White chocolate its wonderfully smooth texture. Then, we blend in Madagascan vanilla, which adds a deeper flavor, which, we think, white chocolate rarely achieves.white
  • Dark: 85% dark chocolate , We use 85% cocoa solids for an intense hit of cocoa. But, like everything we do, it’s balanced with just enough sugar to separate the bitterness and the acidity, resulting in an almost savory note. The organic vanilla naturally seasons the chocolate and softens its bitterness.dark7

 

These are only a few of their flavors but you can see why our minds changed? Yum! You gotta try them for yourself to know just how good they are. You can make all sorts of recipes with them, just let your imagination run wild 🙂

 

Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate has definitely won us over which is why we wanted to share their products with you. We’re sure you will enjoy them and since Christmas is coming, they’d also make great stocking stuffers!

Monster SuperStar Bluetooth Speakers

We’re a family who loves music. Any time of the day, other than when the little one is in bed, you can find music playing at our house. Whether it’s dance, rock, pop, country, Christmas or kids music there’s ALWAYS something playing.

Monster-SuperStar-Bluetooth-Speakers

A lot of the time it’s too difficult to carry big, bulky speakers from room to room to enjoy listening to the music. Thankfully wireless speakers were invented! One that we’ve absolutely fell in love with is the High Powered Wireless Monster Superstar Speaker and Speakerphone by Monster Products.  AKA The Worlds Smallest Audiophile Speaker.

 

Some of the awesome features this conveniently miniature speaker has are:

 

  • portable
  •  wireless
  •  high-definition
  •  Time correct low latency audio
  •  IPX-4 splash protected rated
  •  Durable, shock-proof, silicone protective shell
  •  Room-filling conference calls

Monster-SuperStar-Bluetooth-Speakers

We love that Monster Products was able to combine two miniature speakers into one device and with such amazing quality sound. Normally when you play music loud with a Bluetooth speaker it doesn’t sound all that great. This so isn’t the case for the Monster Superstar! The sound and base that this pocket-sized system puts out is absolutely stunning. It’s just as loud as our big expensive system that has to be moved in three separate pieces. Seriously you have to be beside someone to hear them on the Superstar!

 

This speaker is compatible with tablets, smartphones, notebooks and PC’s and sells for $149.95

Crunch-Master-Snacks!!-Review

 

We like the fact that these products are low in sodium as well as not having too much flavor. They’re lightly coated making them just right. We’ve actually used the Roasted Garlic as a breadcrumb for stuffing and it came out absolutely delicious! The flax seeds in Crunch Masters products give them a taste that we can’t get enough of which is why we totally recommend trying them. And last but not least Crunch Master would not have their name if it wasn’t for the HUGE crunch these little crackers have!!!!! We absolutely love it

Kid-Kraft-Austin-Toy-Box-in-honey-color-#review!

We were very happy when this arrived let me tell you.. My son has so many toys and most of them are cars, so I knew right away that I was going to make this toy box just for his vehicles. Its called the Austin Toy box in Honey from KidKraft. I absolutely love this company. They actually have the child in mind when creating their toys. You may remember us reviewing the My Lil’ Doll Cradle w Pink Bedding. They have quickly became our family’s favorite kid company.

 

Kid-Kraft-Austin-Toy-Box-in-honey-color-#review!

Some of the toy box features include:

  • Doubles as a bench for additional seating. Simply add (or not) a small cushion and it becomes a bench to sit on.
  • It definitely helps to keep my little man’s room tidy and organized
  • The Safety hinges on lid protects young fingers from getting pinched or the door being slammed.
  • Length 38″
  • Height 5.5″
  • Durable
  • Weighs a little over 34 lbs

This sturdy toy box was definitely built to last and it fits right in with any room decor (also comes in different colors). I would definitely recommend this product to all my friends and family. It would definitely make a great Christmas Gift.

Our little guy (Riley) loves books. Especially when they’re about him and being read by mommy and Daddy! Finding these types of books is pretty easy. Finding ones that are made with great quality is a little harder.

I-See-Me-personalized-Book-Review

 

I See Me! Inc is a marvelous company who produces personalized children’s books that are of great quality and that help kids discover themselves. These books include the childs picture and name throughout the book with nice, bright illustrations. From discovering your inner farmer to learning how to make the world a better place, I See Me! has it!

The book we were asked to review is I Can Change The World written by: award-winning children’s author Jennifer Dewing and illustrated by artist Marie Cardouat.

I-See-Me-personalized-Book-Review

Our children are our future and the ones that will change the world but sometimes they need help realizing that it doesn’t take millions of people to make a change. It only takes one person doing small things every day that make the world a better place!

“Even a small child has the ability to spread kindness and change the world… by using manners, doing chores around the house to help the family, being a good friend, collecting food for the hungry, and more. Even a simple smile can change someone else’s day.”

I-See-Me-personalized-Book-Review

 

This story is well written and illustrated with clear, bright pictures and has a great moral to it. We love the fact that it has a picture of our son on the front page as well as a special message from Mommy & Daddy. We also like that  the book has a hard front and back cover as most personalized books have paper covers.

The fact that this book encourages kids to be helpful and try to make someone’s day better with small acts of kindness is awesome in our books. A book everyone should read!

This book is available for $29.95 USD as well as other I See Me! Inc. products which include lunch boxes, puzzles, coloring books, placemats, stickers and growth charts! For more information please visit their Website.

Sweet and Sour Sauce #HJrecipes

It’s hard to find a “new” dish that the whole family loves when it comes to meals and with the little one there’s usually more than one supper made. We decided to make a batch of sweet & sour meatballs for a change and really didn’t think the little guy was going to like them because of the vinegar but low & behold, he loved them! This recipe can also be used for sweet & sour pork, sweet & sour chicken balls , ribs, served over rice or used as a simple dipping sauce. It’s also gluten-free!

ss
What you’ll need:
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp potato starch
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
Directions:
Mix all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil on the stove. Reduce heat and allow to simmer. The sauce will seem a bit watery but will thicken as it sets. Add the desired meat and continue simmering until meat is cooked. If you don’t want to add meat, simmer sauce until it reaches a syrupy stage and set aside to thicken.
Enjoy

Try the NEW Molkosan Berry Flavor Tonic by A.vogel #MolkosanBerry

A.vogel has challenged us to a happier tummy by using the New Molkosan Berry flavor Tonic. For the next 21 days, follow us on this great journey to see our results :). It started on November 1st and will end on the 21st.

Try-the-NEW-Molkosan-Berry-Flavor-Tonic-by-A.vogel-#MolkosanBerry

Why did A.vogel choose 21 days for this challenge? They say that it takes 21 days to make something a habit but it’s also a great amount of time to see improvement in your digestive health, after taking Molkosan berry every day for the 21 days!

So for over a week now I have been drinking this Molkosan Berry drink and I am surprised that I actually look forward to it in the mornings with my breakfast. I call it my “morning juice”. For my drink, I simply add a Tablespoon of this mix in a glass of cold water (1 1/2 cups and enjoy it..
I do recommend drinking it up fast because the longer it sits there, the more the flavor diminishes.

Try-the-NEW-Molkosan-Berry-Flavor-Tonic-by-A.vogel-#MolkosanBerry

 

Try-the-NEW-Molkosan-Berry-Flavor-Tonic-by-A.vogel-#MolkosanBerry

The Molkosan Berry is known for its traditional uses as a valuable food. It is Lactose, Sugar and Gluten FREE. Each bottle has 13 portions (meaning 13 glasses of water or shakes) We are using 2 bottles for this 21 day challenge.
