PB Crave 4 Flavor Variety Pack Review & Giveaway #pbcrave

Curt’s Peanut Butter Company has developed four unique PB Crave flavors. The exciting new premium peanut butter is produced by Sweet Harvest Foods in Cannon Falls, MN and is now available at Walmart Supercenters and Cost Plus World Market stores across the US.

Mmmm, did someone say peanut butter? BP Crave takes peanut butter to a whole new level! With four mouthwatering, natural peanut butter blends — each mixing favorite flavors with premium peanut butter — for a new twist on an old classic.

I recently received the above PB Crave 4 Flavor Variety Pack for my family to review. We go through a lot of peanut butter in our house, so to say this has been a welcomed review, is a real understatement.

We put peanut butter on almost everything! Sandwiches, toast, apples, bagels, waffles, pancakes, pretzels, gram crackers, to just name a few.

PB Crave is artisan-crafted using high-quality ingredients and proven practices.

–No hydrogenated oil
–No artificial flavors
–No syrups
–No high-fructose corn syrup
–Gluten and cholesterol free
–Small batches, artisan crafted
–USDA-approved manufacturing
–Fun, delicious and nutritious

While the Choco Choco is amazing on anything, the Cookie Nookie was the first of the four flavors to be finished. I think my husband might have been adding a little on top of his evening ice cream. Who would blame him? This stuff is delicious! All four flavors have been a hit with my family. The only, even close to negative thing I’ve heard is a mention that each jar requires a lot of string when opened. But no worries – once you give it a stir, there are a ton of yummy treats to be blended in each jar. I assume that has something to do with the all natural process of how it’s made. Judging by the quality and taste, I wouldn’t change a thing!

My current addiction – CoCo Bananas spread thick on-top of chocolate chip waffles. Yum!

Making memories with McDonald’s Happy Meal & Go-Gurt #Giveaway

As you may know, McDonald’s is now offering Go-GURT Low-Fat Strawberry Yogurt as an additional side option for kids in its Happy Meals. This Go-GURT is made exclusively for McDonald’s with 25 percent less sugar than the leading kid’s yogurt and is available in all restaurants nationwide.

The decision to include Go-Gurt in Happy Meals is another step in the McDonald’s partnership with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which was founded by the American Heart Association and Clinton Foundation, aimed to reduce childhood obesity and empower children to develop healthy habits for life.

Adding Go-Gurt to the Happy Meal menu isn’t the only change at McDonald’s — they’ve also introduced “Happy,” a new, animated Happy Meal character who is an ambassador for balanced eating. Happy brings a big friendly smile to each meal, and encourages kids to eat fruit, veggies, low-fat dairy, water, and juice.

I recently received several “Be Our Guest” Free Happy Meal coupons from McDonald’s to review the new Go-GURT Happy Meal option. So, I did what any good grandma would do – I called this girl to help me out!

HappyMeal6609_529288096_n

As you can see I really had to twist her arm to help me with this review..

We had so much fun! Enjoying dinner to go, and a whole lot of laughing throughout the evening. The Go-GURT, it gets two big thumb up from Becca. I’m excited to see McDonald’s bring more healthy choices to their menu, their restaurant and food has been a part of making memories with my girls years.

Movie Night & Febreze Our #NoseBlind Test #Giveaway

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

febreze-logo

Did you know that most of us become “Noseblind” to odors in our own home? Basically, we’re so used to smelling them that our brain decides that they are no longer important, and eventually stops recognizing them all together. Kind of like living with a hound, like we do. She’s part of our family, and we love her. Even though I use a lot of products to try and keep our home smelling fresh – I’m sure our guests pick up on her odor much more than we do.

Our #NoseBlind test
Have you seen the humorous Febreze commercials featuring their NoseBlind challenges? I’ve seen a couple of them, and in all honesty have been pretty skeptical. This week I had the opportunity to take the test myself along with a couple of friends during a movie night.

A fun chick-flick (Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club), three bowls of smelly popcorn (Extra Butter, Movie theater butter, and White Cheddar) and of course two of my friends that are not noseblind to our home. We were ready to put the Febreze Meadows & Rain product line to the test!

NoseBlind_test2_popcorn

I’m happy to share that the Febreze products came out on top! Passing the test! They not only rid of Roxy’s hound odor, which is a job in it’s self, but tackled new as they happened odor instantly, such as our popcorn. Not masking the odors, but eliminating, so there was no sign of them throughout the night. I’m really impressed! As were my friends.

Take your own Noseblind test. Then share your results with Febeze on Twitter and Facebook. Be sure to use the #NoseBlind hashtag!

One lucky Five Dollar Shake reader will win a Febreze Prize Package, plus a $60 American Express cash card!
