BzzCampaign: Fiber One® Protein Cereal Review

What better way to start the new year than with a new daily routine! The Spring Semester has begun for this blogger and thankfully I am in my final year! Since I am balancing clinicals and school, it is important for me to be able to eat right and stay energized (...lol I do try occasionally!) With all of the new wonderfully fun Bzzcampaigns going out this month, I was incredibly pleased to discover I had been selected to take part in the Fiber One Protein Cereal Bzzcampaign!



Included in my package was:
  • A FREE full-size box of NEW Fiber One® Protein Maple Brown Sugar Cereal
  • A FREE full-size box of NEW Fiber One® Protein Cranberry Almond Cereal
  • Pass along coupons for friends and family to save on either variety of NEW Fiber One® Protein Cereal
  • Bzzagent infor with bzz tips

How lucky can a girl be?! I was definitely looking forward to breakfast the following morning and was not disappointed! My personal favorite was the maple brown sugar. It was so yummy and so full of flavor. It stayed crisp, crunchy, and sweet even after adding the milk!




The added bonus of course was the protein & fiber! To quote bzzagent, " Fiber One Protein Cereal contains 10g of protein when served with milk and 20% daily value of fiber, making it a great option all day long!" You definitely can't go wrong.

This tasty cereal can also go beyond breakfast! This would make a great addition to any parfait or yogurt combo and adds a snazzy crunch to a cookie recipe. The possibilities are endless!

The verdict? This is a must try even for those with more particular tastes (aka sisters with picky taste buds lol)

Do you have some unique ways of eating this cereal other than as a tasty breakfast option? Share them in the comment section! We would love to see them.

BzzCampaign: Schick Hydro Silk Sensative Skin Care Razor

What better way to ring in a brand new year than with a brand spankin' new Bzzcampaign from Bzzagent! When I found out that I would be participating in the Schick Hydro Silk Sensative Skin Care Razor Bzzcampaign, I was pretty excited!

So here are a few admission to start off this review lol. We have been experiencing some really cold temperatures lately which has been a wonderful break from the heat we are so used to year round ... the problem ... I definitely didn't shave my legs as often as I should have and even when I did cheated (lol only shaved below the knee :P ). So now that the warmer temperatures are returning, it is definitely time to get out the razor and shaving lotion/cream and get to work!

My Bzzcampaign kit arrived just in time! I was definitely attracted to the packaging, but felt maybe a simpler box would have worked better as I had to practically tear mine apart to get to the razor.

 

I noticed that the razor came with a plastic holder that could be attached in your shower for storage. To be honest, the holder was rather flimsy and really didn't hold it in place so I just didn't use it.

I did a test run using this razor and decided that I would use my Bic soleil on one leg and the Schick hydro on the other. I gotta say, the bic soleil won hands down. I wasn't too happy with the Schick hydro results. The shave wasn't anywhere near as consistent or close as the soleil. I found that I still had patches of hair and had to go over the areas multiple times.

I used the schick brand shaving cream that was recommended to use with the product and all it did was clog up the blades and make a mess.

HOWEVER!!! There are some great perks to this product.

I do love the moisturizing bands around the blades and found that if you bypass the shaving gel and just moisten your legs with water and use the razor, the shave is actually pretty good and really does leave your legs soft to the touch. I also loved that it really moisturized my skin and didn't leave me feeling dry at all.

It has been 5 days since my shave and I can actually say I am just barely starting to see signs of light stubble. This is actually a pleasant surprise for me as I typically start seeing stubble in as little as 2 days, so I definitely like not having to shave as often!




My verdict on this product would be to give it a try. It is definitely a great product to use for those of us with sensitive skin.

Bzzagent Review - Food Should Taste Good Crisps - Eating Better Tastes Great!

Summer has always been my time for slower living and catching up on much needed R&R. Unfortunately, that usually means me munching on pretty much anything and everything in the fridge and snack counter lol. As usualy, Bzzagent has saved the day and has shown me that eating better doesn't have to feel like deprivation.

What if I told you, that a better snack option could be something as simple as yummy flavored tortilla crisps? I am pretty sure you are thinking I am crazy and should just end my speech here lol.

The Food Should Taste Good brand has come up with an amazing campaign that includes tasty tortilla crisps that are gluten free, cholesterol free, have zero trans fats, are certified Kosher and many varieties are certified vegan! The best part? They taste great! I don't feel like I am eating better at all, but I am. They are crispy and flavorful and really make a tasty treat.

As a bzzagent, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to try these amazing crisps free of charge. Here are a few photos of my amazing bzzkit:







I received: 3 full size bags of Food Should Taste Good Brand Tortilla Chips (Jalapeno, Sweet Potato, and Whole Grain) and 2 Snack Size bags (Olive and Blue Corn). I also receive a lovely grocery bag and chip clip along with amazing coupons!

Their Full Line of Tortilla Chips Include the following flavors:

Blue Corn
Cantina
Cheddar
Chocolate
Jalapeño
Jalapeño with Cheddar
Kettle Corn
Kimchi
Lime
Multigrain
Olive
Sweet Potato
The Works!
Toasted Sesame
White Cheddar

Seriously? How yummy do those sound!! My favorite part about the chips, other than insane tastiness, was the fact that you can see the whole grains without squinting! These chips may look health conscious, but they taste like a guilty pleasure!

Whole Grain Tortilla Chip

Olive Tortilla Chip


Lets get down to the facts:

The chips are gluten free, cholesterol free, have zero trans fats.
Have been recognized with over 50 awards!
The tortilla chips are available in over 15 classic and culinary flavors – from Cheddar to Kimchi – while the Kettle Cooked Sweet Potato Chips come in four varieties .
