Hey Dolls!
I recently tired out a couple of flavors of zazubean Organic Dark Chocolate. In flirt & lunatic.
zazubean is 100% Organic, Fair Trade Certified, Functional, Gluten Free, Vegan, No Emulsfier, GMO Free, & Best of all Soy Free.
With a good amount of fiber & iron, this makes a healthy dark chocolate to indulge in.
flirt - BE BOLD BE SEXY - With Raspberry & Cherry - 70% Cacao - and with a hint of ACAI.
I liked this one the best, so beautifully very berry sweet and thought the added touch of Acai was really nice.
lunatic - COOL THE MONTHLY MADNESS - With Mint & Cocoa Nibs, 73% Cacao - with Maca, this one was nice too, very light mint, not overpowering and nice rich crispy cocoa nibs.

I like the package design, all the flavors have very original and strong eye-catching detail.
A very photogenic chocolate.
Also really love that their a local company (from Vancouver, B.C.)! Very cool. I'll be looking into ordering a bunch for my next party I'll be hosting. :)

Good Morning Readers!
I recently tried out the new collection of dessert inspired treats from Allan Candy called Dessert Bites.
I loved the sound of them and their packaging is designed well very eye catching and is very pretty!
All are so yummy.. perfect for parties and entertaining!
I'm honestly not much of a candy type person but these are so different.
Very appealing and photogenic..
With it's super soft yogurt coating it's much fancier than the traditional candy.
Each of the 4 flavors give you the satisfaction of eating your favorite dessert without all the added calories.. my favorite is the Key Lime Pie! Truly divine. :)
Inside the soft yogurt coating is a pretty colored gummy fit for each Strawberry Shortcake (pink), Key Lime Pie (lime green), Apple Pie (sunshine yellow), and Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake (raspberry pink).
I noticed 2 of the bags were re-sealable and the other 2 were not.. so a good way to store them is in a Ziploc bag.. to keep them nice and fresh!

Retail for 3.99 each and Conveniently packaged for on-the-go indulgence, Dessert Bites™ will soon be available at most grocery, mass merchandise and convenience stores in 200-gram re-sealable bags. Currently found at Wal-Mart and Sobeys Ontario stores, Dessert Bites will land on shelves at Loblaw, Giant Tiger, London Drugs, and more in the near future.

With 22g of Whole Grains and 75% Less Saturated Fat than Potato Chips.
They are Baked, Not Fried.
Great 3 flavors with "Nacho", "Sea Salt" & "Sour Cream & Chive".

I have been loving Pineapple & Pineapple Juice lately.
Well ever wondered what the Benefits of Pineapple is?
I prefer it in my Morning Smoothie or event just sliced up in some salad on on yogurt.
There is even a New Sunrype Drink thats Pineapple & Coconut Water + Yummy! :)
This Sweet & exotic juicy fruit is packed with some of the most important antioxidants in nature.
Pineapple reduces swelling, high in vitamin C, manganese and fiber.
Potential Anti-Inflammatory and Digestive Benefits, Bromelain extracts can be obtained from both the fruit core and stems of pineapple. Also Antioxidant Protection and Immune Support you get from the Manganese and Thiamin (Vitamin B1) great for Energy Production and Antioxidant Defenses!
Protection against Macular Degeneration, just three servings of fruit is your daily need.
