Bitsy’s Brainfood {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I think we can all agree that we want to feed our kids good stuff.  Right?  But have you ever walked down the health food aisles at your local grocery store? I think it’s pretty clear that the food there is marketed to adults and in general the packaging can be on the bland side… It can be hard to convince a child that they would rather have a cereal that’s also loaded with nutrients when it’s coming from a bland blue box.

This is where Bitsy’s Brainfood comes in.

Bisty’s Brianfood was started by two moms who wanted eating smart to also be fun. They created a bunch of snack foods that are perfect for kids. They are packed with good stuff (vitamins, Omega-3) that help support your child’s development, tasty, nutritious, and are perfect for on-the-go.

I was sent a box of “Fruit & Veggie 1, 2, 3” cereal, a box of “Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies” and a box of “Lemon Broccoli Cookies” to review.

The box of cereal is bright and fun, the back of the box is covered with games and fun facts as well as the whole inside of the box.  The cereal is shaped in numbers, and I was little apprehensive about how it would taste after it tooted it healthyness so clearly.  Eating it by the handful I think it actually taste quite good, a bit like Trix to start with but there is more of a grainy after taste, however when I added milk to it and ate it as proper cereal it tasted less sweet and more similar to cheerios.  Dimitri thought the cereal was fantastic either way and was more than happy to shove both fistfuls and spoonfuls into his mouth.

The Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies were sweet, flavorful, and hard to leave alone. The Lemon Broccoli Cookies seemed a little softer and more apt to crumbling but they were also amazing, the lemon made them tangy and I even knowing they were loaded with broccoli I couldn’t really taste it.  Both sets of cookies were shaped like alphabet letters and a lot of fun to play with before eating.

Bitsy’s Brainfood makes it clear that really want this food to appeal to kids, and through using interactive packaging, fun stickers, characters that spark little imaginations, and a kid friendly website your child might actually ask for a Lemon Broccoli Smart Cookie, instead of a chocolate chip cookie next time they’re looking for something sweet.

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the loads of unhealthy snack targeted at kids then you really need to check out Bitsy’s Brainfood.  Places to buy Bitsy’s Brainfood.

FRUCHI {Giveaway} — CLOSED

When the summer comes, we all pretty much live off of popsicles and ice cream.  We buy popsicles in the huge bulk-sized bag, we make lots of popsicles in our 30 different popsicle molds, we have an entire freezer full of cartons of ice cream, and we put our 20-minute ice cream maker to good use!  In all of our frozen treat eating, though, I love to try and get in some healthy foods — we’ve found some great sorbet recipes that use all fruit and minimal sugar, and our favorite popsicles have been made from 100% juice.

 When I came across FRUCHI and had the opportunity to review their products, I knew that we would love them since they’re right up our alley.  However, I had NO IDEA how much we would love them!  I can honestly, honestly say that these have been our favorite treats over the past few weeks!   I have grabbed a couple to take out to the beach with us, we’ve eaten them while the boys ride bikes and play outside, and I actually even used them as a side for dinner a couple of nights ago when a grocery store run was sorely needed…  I love that these can be eaten on the go since they’re in a pouch, or they also make it easier for my boys (ages 2 and 4) to eat right here at home without any other utensils or mess.

 We were sent four different flavors to try, and it just worked out well that my husband, oldest son, and I each inevitably claimed a different favorite flavor.  I was shocked to find that I loved the Island Splash more than any of the others since I’m usually drawn to berry flavors, while my husband liked the Berry Blast the best and my oldest son asked every time for the Raspberry Splash.

Brownie Brittle {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Do you have friends on Facebook who post a picture of every meal, every snack, every drink that they consume?  Do you yourself post a picture of every meal, every snack, every drink that you consume??  This is one of my Facebook pet peeves (that is clearly a first-world problem), but I was intrigued when a couple of my friends posted about the same treats within days of each other, all toting these snacks as their favorite one.

These friends were going crazy for Brownie Brittle and said that they were inhaling bags of them and couldn’t get enough!  As a chocolate-lover, I felt it my duty to try them out and report back.  Basically, I’m inhaling bags of them and can’t get enough.  🙂

“Like many brownie aficionados, Sheila is particularly fond of the crispy edges. In fact, on many an afternoon she would walk through the bakery gathering the brittle batter off the sides of the sheet pans as the brownies cooled in their racks. It had that same rich chocolate taste, but with an amazing crunch. That started her wondering: How could she create a whole pan of crunchy edges? Well, lucky for us, she figured it out! Now you too can satisfy your sweet tooth in a snap with Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle!”

I generally am a middle-of-the-pan brownie lover, and I will always make cake-like brownies instead of gooey brownies that give me nightmares about eating undercooked batter, but the crispness of the Brownie Brittle is my favorite part!  The brownie flavor is one-of-a-kind and is strong without being overwhelming.  The Chocolate Chip has a smooth cocoa flavor the whole way through, and the Toffee Crunch gives a zing of great toffee flavor.

Although I loved eating these straight from the bag while watching Horton Hears a Who for our Dr. Seuss family date night tonight, I’m really interested to try out some of the recipes posted on the Brownie Brittle website.  My favorite is the strawberries dipped in either white or dark chocolate and then rolled in Brownie Brittle pieces.  YUM!  These Brownie Brittle Butterfinger Cookies also look like they’re calling my name:

Brownie Brittle is offering a 4-pack of a variety of their flavors to one Dandy reader!
