G.H. Cretor's famous Chicago Mix Review

As a mom of four teenagers, I am always on the lookout for tasty snacks for my teens and boy have I found one! Recently, our family was sent G.H. Cretor’s famous Chicago Mix, it's an addicting combination of Caramel Corn and Cheese Corn in the same bag.

This G.H. Cretor's Chicago Mix is just simply good. With just one bite, I had sweet, salty, crunchy and cheesy flavors dancing across my taste buds! It was so good that I ate two bags within just a few minutes! 

These 1.5 ounce bags are great for on the go---and my teens are usually on the go, between church, school, working and everything else they are involved in, they can enjoy this tasty treat on the run, and I can enjoy it sitting in my SUV waiting to transport them to their next activity!

Chicago Mix is Non-GMO Project Verified, completely free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, and certified gluten-free.

Avengers Birthday Party Supplies

Not even Loki can stop you from throwing the best birthday ever when you order Avengers Party Supplies from Birthday Express. Invite Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Incredible Hulk and the rest of the team to your little superhero's celebration! Speaking of superheros ... you'll be the hero of the day with these Avengers birthday party ideas!

Invitations - Invite friends and thank them for coming with Avengers Assemble Invitations & Thank-You Postcards. Inside each invitation you could add Avengers Assemble Tattoos which are non-toxic and easy to apply and remove. With each thank you card you could include a photo of the birthday boy or girl and their heroic friends together! Guests will love having a memento from the party to remind them of the fun time they had. 

Party Decor - What better way to unite the whole team than by giving each guest their own Avengers Masks? Add some red, white, and blue balloons, ceiling streamers, and the Avangers Assemble Wall Decorating Kit and your superheros will feel right at home.

Food & Drink - All superheros need to replenish their powers, and what better way to do so than with a snack tray of fruits and vegetables with little labels that tell each hero how it strengthens them (e.g. carrots = "super vision;" blueberries = "super mind"). And we all know what a mess those Avengers can sometimes make, so theAvengers Assemble Plastic Tablecover is a must for any party. 


Dannon Light & Fit Protein Shakes

Temptations come in many forms, chocolates from your spouse, cookies baked by your daughter or from a box of donuts at the office that the skinny person brought in!

I was recently sent Light & Fit Protein Shakes from Dannon and they are a delicious, convenient way to help me overcome some of the tough daily enticements. With 12 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 0% fat per 10 fl. oz. bottle, Light & Fit Protein Shakes are a healthy way to satisfy my sweet tooth.

These Dannon Light & Fit Protein Shakes are great for grabbing for when you are in a hurry and do not have time to sit down at the table for a meal. I have witnessed my college age son grab one of these, more than once, while rushing out the door on the way to his classes! And with him being a weight lifter, the 12 grams of protein is an added plus!

Light & Fit Protein Shakes come in 10 fl. oz. 4 packs in four delicious flavors: Strawberry, Mixed Berry, Vanilla and Banana and are available in grocery stores nationwide. The strawberry is my favorite!

Shake up your Breakfast with Muesli

When I was a child, my mom would always cook breakfast for us, everyday! And it was usually the same breakfast every day, fried eggs, biscuits---4 biscuits were always sugar biscuits (yum!) and gravy. Every once in a while, we might have bacon to go with it, but not usually!

One morning, out of the blue, my dad came walking through the living room carrying something that looked like raw oats, with bananas slices on top soaked in milk. I instantly wanted to know what it was, and he said that mom was trying something new for breakfast. I wasn't too sure about that 'junk' he had in his bowl either.

So I went to the kitchen to get my bowl, sat down and ate the whole bowl. It was very tasty!

Recently I was introduced to Blueberry Chia Buck wheat MuesliThis reminds me of my breakfast that I had long ago, that my mother had prepared! However, Muesli is not granola or oatmeal, there’s no refined sugar - the only sweetness comes from organic honey and what naturally occurs in fruit.

Muesli can be eaten cold, hot or soaked in milk. For breakfast I have eaten it a couple of different ways. I have poured my Muesli in a bowl and added only milk to it and I have poured it over my favorite yogurt---yum! I love the coconut flakes and pumpkin seeds, not to mention the blueberries all mixed in with my yogurt! The next recipe that I am going to try is the Muesli Hot Cakes found on back of the bag! 

I know there are many are doing Gluten Free diets these days and you will be happy to know that Muesli is Gluten Free! 

Seven Sundays now has five muesli mixes that are available in 12 oz bags and 6 oz cups and available at nationwide at Target and many other fine regional grocery locations.
