UNREAL Candy ~Review~

I was given the chance to try some new candy from bzzAgent and Unreal Candy. I love me some candy so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try something new. The thing that really caught my eye about this candy is that its "unjunked" there are no corn syrups, hydrogenated fats, GMOs, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. Unreal, instead, uses real products like; real cane sugar, real milk, peanuts, and cacao.

We have tried 4 of the 5 different kinds of Unreal candy so far. We've tried the Chocolate Candy Shell Peanuts #54, the Chocolate Candy Shell #41, the Chocolate Caramel Nougat #5, and the Chocolate Peanut Butter #77 and we have liked them all. The only one that we haven't tried yet is the Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat #8 so far. My kids are in love with #54 and #41, they think the colors are awesome and that they taste just as good if not better then the "name brand" type of similar products. I am very very partical to the #5, it tastes way better then the "name brand" product that it is similar to and I could probaly eat it every day.  The #77 was ok, it wasn't our favorite but it wasn't horrible either.

The first thing I noticed about UN #54 and #41 was the color. The colors aren't the normal IN YOUR FACE look at me I'm bright colors that we here in the US are used to, instead the colors are darker. There are no artificial colors in these so if you can't eat artificial colors but like candy these may be a good option for you! I really liked the fact that the artificial colors were removed. It really reminded me of candy that I've seen from England where artificial colors are banned.

Over all I really liked these candies and I am planning to buy some more! I have found these at my local Walgreen's and Staples stores here in North Idaho. You can also find them at CVS, Michael's, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Kroger, Ralphs, Rite Aid, Haggen, Top food and drug, and BJ's. Unreal is also coming soon to Target stores sometime in October!

Here are some pictures of what UN #54, #41 and #5 look like and of Miss. Kieran eating some!

SheaMoisture Baby Bar Soap ~Review~

In part of my Influenster Natural VoxBox I recieved the SheaMoisture Baby Bar Soap. This was the item I was most excited to try since I've never tried a bar soap for the kids before.

I'm in love with this soap! I've been using it on my Kieran for the last 2 weeks and I wish I've had it for the last 3 years.

The packaging was very nice and simple, and super easy to open and didn't rip apart or stick to the soap like other brands of bar soaps. The first thing0 that I noticed, after opening it, was the smell of the soap. The smell is a nice soft Shea smell and not overpowering like other soaps. When I put it in the washcloth I was very surprised at how quickly it lathered up. A little goes along way with this soap and its awesome. Most bar soaps that I've tried you have to work up a lather for a minute or two and sometimes it doesn't even stay, not this soap it was nice an foamy the entire time! We love this soap.

My Kieran is always asking to take a bath with her special soap now!

Influenster's Natural VoxBox

I got my 3rd (I think lol) Influenster VoxBox a couple weeks ago. This box was the Naturals box, filled with all natural and/or organic products. Here is a shot of what I got in my box. I will be posting a blog post of a few of the products here soon!
