~Kroger CARBmaster & Greek yogurt review~

 

As a BzzAgent one of my newest campaigns was an opportunity to try out Kroger’s exclusive line of CARBmaster yogurts and milk drinks.  CARBmaster yogurts are are lower in carbs, calories and sugar than regular yogurt. I was very surprised with the wide variety of flavors available in the CARBmaster line. I am very traditional in the sense that I really only like strawberry & vanilla yogurt but I ventured out and tried a Kroger CARBmaster carrot cake yogurt. I LOVE carrot cake and was happy that to have an alternative to the unhealthy desert. Overall the taste is exactly like carrot cake, but the spice flavor was  a little to overpowering.

 

I also was given the opportunity to try Kroger’s Greek yogurt with 14 grams of protein I was excited to try my first Greek yogurt. It also comes in a wide variety of flavors. I picked up some blueberry,vanilla, and plain.  I tried a vanilla and I was NOT a fan. I have never had Greek yogurt before and the texture is not really for me. It also had a bad aftertaste I couldn’t get past. Honestly I couldn’t even finish it.  My daughter insisted on having one herself. I let her try vanilla first , she gobbled it up the first few bites. Then she said “Ew, when I put it in my mouth it leaves an icky taste “    She also tried the blueberry and ate a few bites and then had the same reaction. I have some left but  I think  I will save those for smoothies.

Im still waiting to try the CARBmaster milk drinks ! If you are on a diet or looking to eat healthy. Try the Kroger exclusive line of CARBmaster yogurt and Kroger Greek yogurt.

~MorningStar turns boring into fantastic~

 

As a BzzAgent I was given the opportunity to try MorningStar products. I was excited to be given this opportunity , I have tried their corn dogs before and was pleasantly  surprised. I love the idea of meatless Monday. So this past week we planned ours.

blog 003

We decided to try the MorningStar Crumbles. I fixed up our typical   spaghetti and added the crumbles to the sauce. This turned out beautifully. I gotta say this was the most exciting spaghetti we have had in awhile! Usually spaghetti is a last minute decision because its easy and its always in the pantry . Adding the crumbles we may actually look forward to spaghetti night. Going meatless is much harder on my husband then for me. I am not a meat lover I could do without and be perfectly happy. Using Morningstar products is a perfect compromise , he thinks he is getting his meat and I know I am not :)  Even my super picky Lily who NEVER eats spaghetti LOVED it. She kept asking for more sauce.

This whole meal is also very cheap. Under $9  to feed 2 adults, a 3 year old plus leftovers for the week and that would be without coupons! MorningStar products are included in the Kroger mega sale this week so go stock up! I did!

~Dress up your nails with Kiss Nail Dress!~

                   kiss3

I received Kiss Nail Dress in Leopard print in my Holiday VoxBox . I have never tried these before so I was interested to try them. I am far from a girly girl , but my little Lily is. So last night we had a just us girls nail party. I painted her nails and used Kiss Nail Dress on mine. I also let paint mommy’s toes I mean toenails…..

The Kiss Nail Dress came with a good amount of strips –good for me cause I  mess up a lot! I picked the size sticker I thought would be good , Applied it, smoothed and then filed the excessed down. It was a little hard for me to get these on properly. My nails are short and rugged. I just couldn’t get them to sit very well. I also had trouble filing the excess off, seems it would be easier to trim it then file.

kiss2

Overall I like them and think it would be easier the next time.

Pros: No dry time , super cute designs, supposed to last up to a week

Cons: little hard to file the excess off, mine seems to be chipping  a little already.

Suggested retail price of $6.99 and these can be found at major retail shops like CVS Target and Walmart among others.

To see all the cute designs check them out on the Kiss website. I really like the camisole print –looks like zebra print.

Check out other Influenster’s reviews too.

~Kroger Closeouts & deals~

 

Kroger has a ton of closeout deals going on, these of course may vary from store to store. Here is what I picked up along with some good deals.

blog 002

Closeout Deals

Horizon Organic Chocolate Milk $1.72 each

Cover Girl Mascara $ 2.10

Cover Girl Eye Liner $.97

    Used $3.00/2 Cover Girl products (P&G insert)

2 Revlon Nail Polish $1.00/ $1.59

Special Purchase deals

(2) Yoplait Kids $2.00 each

(2) Multigrain Cheerios $2.50 each

Used (2) $..75 Multigrain Cheerios HERE

It would have been a better deal if I would have had my Yoplait coupon on me but this is something we buy fairly often so I can always use it again.

There were a TON of closeouts, I literally walked around for an hour so I didn’t miss out on anything. Budget is a little tight this month so I could only get a few things.The nail polish was a splurge for me. The chocolate milk is Lily’s favorite and it is normally almost $4  so I had to stock up, I’m hoping my other store has some more.

~Kroger Shoppers-Awesome coupons~

 

There are some really good digital coupons available at Kroger right now.

krogercoupon

My favorite is $2.00 off a 12 pack of Dr Pepper, 7UP, or Sunkist. Any Variety. That should make for some cheap drinks!

 

Head on over and see the other good coupons, keep in mind you can not combine digital coupons and manufacturer’s so pick ones you don’t think you will have a paper coupon for that item.

~EBOOST Natural Energy- Review~

 

As an Influenster I received a sample of EBOOST Natural Energy in my Holiday VoxBox. I was so excited to try this! I feel like I am always tired, always worn out….even in the morning! I received the Pink Lemonade packet to try. I am not a huge fan of lemonade but at least it was pink! Smile 

Just a tip when I first put the packet into my water it foamed a lot! So be prepared . The pink lemonade really was not that bad but the aftertaste that followed was horrible. I had trouble finishing it. However I did notice I was a lot more active afterwards, I scrubbed my whole kitchen! Its never been this clean.

Want more information? Check out EBOOST’S website you can pick up a box of 20 packets for $28.

Check out other reviews on the Influenster’s  EBOOST page.

 

The Pros: I love that this is a NATURAL product I felt energy without having the jitters < Love that

The Cons: The aftertaste… there really are no words for it.  The price seems a little steep for me, but then again I don’t know what the other energy products go for..

Overall: I may try other flavors, but Im not sure this is for me.

* I received this as part of the  Holiday VoxBox from Influenster *
