Cowgirl Chocolates Review & Giveaway!CLOSED


 
Have you heard of Cowgirl Chocolates yet?!?  

I had never heard of them and was looking for truffles online one nite and came across Cowgirl Chocolates and knew that I wanted to try them as I love Spicy Foods!

Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in 1997.  

Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate.

In fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania.

Marilyn mingled some favorite memories with some new ideas to create an American original, Cowgirl Chocolates.


I was given the chance to review the 1/3 pound Truffle Sampler~and it came wrapped so Cute! 

It had black ribbon around a beautiful red box with a little star in the middle and it contained all of the flavors that they carry. 

 

They have the most delicious blend of sweet and spicy chocolate and I was very impressed with the mixture of flavors. 

The Habenero Caramel was my favorite~as it is very smooth and creamy and then HOT! It was so good~as it has just the right amount of HOT!

The Ivory Orange was a neat combo too with the white chocolate. 

Oh~who am I kidding?!? I loved them ALL :-)

Some Facts About Cowgirl Chocolates~
They have won a total of 16 product awards and 2 packaging awards!
They are located in Moscow, Idaho
They have  featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and in the New
York Times and Toronto Star among others.

  • Non-toxic

I recently was sent some samples of Piggy Paint Nail Polish and also a bottle of Nail Polish Remover to try and it just so happened that my granddaughter Haley{who is 9} was spending the night with us! 

So~we took out the Nail Polish that I had gotten in the color of Girls Rule! and let me tell you this is one beautiful color~it is a real pretty pink with glitter that any girl would love! I also loved it too :-)


Haley opened the bottle and there was no strong scent~and I thought that was great as sometimes that nail polish scent is even too strong for me.

She didn't have any problems with the bottle at all and the polish went on really smooth and shiny. It only takes a minute to dry so it looks great almost right after you finish!

I love this stuff and it comes in many different colors so I am sure that you will find a color that is right for you..

Bee Well Wishes Review & Giveaway!CLOSED

 

When someone you love is going through a tough time, send comfort with a bee well wish. It's comfy, soft things they actually need that feel like a hug from you. 

This company has such beautiful products for people that are either in the hospital or going thru a rough time or sickness. As sometimes flowers or candy are just not the gift that you are looking for and that was the case with this company coming about..

Tina was 8 months pregnant when she found out she had a brain tumor and could not have surgery until the baby was born.Elizabeth was born and Tina had the surgery but had a long healing process ahead of her..And~the flowers and food poured in for all the people that meant well but her hubby is allergic and she had a feeding tube so she was so happy when a good friend bought her a pair of pajamas! As this is the one gift that she really could use. And~that is when Tina and her husband came up with Bee Well Wishes!




When I first learned of this company~it really hit home as my Mom has been diagnosed with Lung Cancer and there are some days that everything hurts on her so this was a answer to a prayer! As~she has been going to Chemo now for about 1 year and it does take a toll on her body..





 I was sent a super comfy lil' bee t~shirt to review and knew exactly  who was going to wear this~My Mom! 

I opened the package and it was wrapped so cute!  It comes with a personalized note and the story behind Bee Well Wishes. It is super soft and it has the stretch neck for easier on and off. The cute "Bee Well Bee" is centered on the chest~to wish your love ones well.

So~she wore it around the house and then to bed last nite and she said that is was so comfy and that it didn't ride up and it wasn't tight so she didn't mind wearing it at all! In fact she said that she would like to wear it all the time!

Not only do they sell the cute lil' t~shirt that I got but also sell sleep pants~blankets and even a sweatshirt blanket!

You can see and buy all of their items here~

Or~You can sign up right here and win your very own Lil' Bee T~Shirt! As Tina has offered one of my readers to win either the Lil' Bee or Big Bee T~Shirt of your choice and size!

Country Bob's Sauce Review & Giveaway! CLOSED


I am please to announce that I am holding my Very First Giveaway!! And~what better way to start then with something that I absolutely love~Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce!



My Review~

I first tired this sauce when a friend of mine in Indiana and she was telling me all about this Country Bob Sauce and that it was so good on everything and that she would not make her Sloppy Joes without the sauce! I had never heard of it so she sent me a bottle and I was hooked from there! As not only is it good in Sloppy Joes but I put it on all my meats! It has such a good bold taste~and gives it just that little "Kick" that you need in any dish!



I made the Country Bob's Baked Beans last week and let me tell you~I am never making them any other way! They were so good and everyone loved them! You can find the recipe at Country Bob's and there are many other recipes there~I am sure you will find one that you love!




Product Description~

In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user!

Along with their All Purpose Sauce they have expanded the product line to include BBQ Sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy All Purpose Sauce.

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is in a class by itself. It is more than a steak sauce, because of its unique flavor and the variety of uses. You can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes.

Use The All Purpose Sauce on:

  • Steak
  • Chicken
  • Barbeque
  • Fries
  • Hamburger
  • Fish
Ingredients: Tomato concentrate, (tomato paste and water), vinegar, corn syrup, sugar, molasses, salt, onion powder, caramel color, garlic powder, tamarind, corn starch, natural flavors, and other spices.
Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce is Gluten Free.

Where To Buy~
http://www.countrybobs.com/
