Gourmet Gift Baskets: Back To School Bear Hug Care Package Review

Send a Bear Hug to a Student Away From Home with a Back To School Bear Hug Care Package Review + Giveaway

I remember the first time I moved away from home. I was a couple weeks out of high school and totally naive to the experience that lay ahead of. Those first couple weeks were an adjustment and I began to miss home quickly. I craved anything that reminded me of home, and I made many phone calls during that time.

Remembering that feeling, when I recently received the Back to School Bear Hug Care Package from GourmetGiftBaskets.com I wished I would have had something similar during those hard first weeks.

Annie B’s Popcorn and Caramel Review

Annie B’s: Popcorn + Caramel Review

When I think back on my teen years, the one thing I always remember was being limited on food I could eat for 6 years. For those 6 years, I wore braces. The instructions that you are given when you get braces is to not eat anything that could dislodge or get stuck in your teeth.

The thing that I missed the most during that time was caramel and popcorn. Now as an adult with braces no more, I am free to eat what I want without worry of repercussions.

Given that feeling it should be no surprise that when I had the opportunity to review some popcorn and caramel from Annie B’s I had very little hesitation.

The Little Kernel Miniature Popcorn Review

The Little Kernel Miniature Popcorn Review

When I find a popcorn that is Non GMO, Gluten Free, Whole Grain, Kosher while popping to half the size of typical popcorn and is virtually hulless, I tend to stop in my tracks. 

While walking the floor at the Natural Product Expo this year I came upon the bright and colorful display that was The Little Kernel. As I looked at the bags, they were as colorful as the popcorn was flavorful. I knew that I wanted more and wanted to try the other flavors available.

Funky Chunky: Funky Chunky Cafe Review

Funky Chunky: Funky Chunky Cafe Review + Giveaway

When I was young one of my favorite things to do was hang around in coffee shops. My friends would come in and out, and I could be as social or anti-social as I chose. I loved the treats I could find in coffee shops and would always make a purchase to accompany my coffee treat

When I saw that popcorn maker Funky Chunky had released a line of flavors inspired by local coffee shops, I was not only intrigued, but curious since I was a coffee shop gal growing up.

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review + Giveaway

As I have mentioned in the past we are a snack house – we love our snacks. The problem is that many times we are looking for a semi-heathy snack that we can eat without our hands being dirtied or full.

In our house, both of us spend many hours at our computers, and since we do not like to get our keyboards dirty, popcorn is often the snack that we end up choosing.

The problem is that since we eat so much popcorn, we grow tired of the flavors typically available. When I recently came across a company called Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn and saw their collection, I was interested to give these different flavors a try.

Masala Pop: Indian Spiced Popcorn Review

Masala Pop: Indian Spiced Popcorn Review + Giveaway

Often times my review items find their way to me by pure coincidence and other ones are by chance. When I heard that a company I have worked with in the past now is working with an Indian Spiced Popcorn company I was intrigued.

My sister in law is married to a French-Morrocan man, and thus my nieces and nephews are adept and used to the Indian spices. Since our household is not as familiar with these, I decided to seize on this opportunity in hopes that I would be able to recommend something yummy to my extended family. The company I was hoping to share was Masala Pop which makes an Indian inspired line of Masala popcorn’s.

Gourmet Gift Baskets: From The Heart Gift Tower Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: From The Heart Gift Tower Review + Giveaway

Each year when the middle of February rolls around, I see more declarations of love from my social media feeds, to late night television. The downside to this is that I am a believer that instead of choosing one date in February to declare our love for loved ones we should show them that love each day of their lives.

In light of this feeling, I think that random acts and loving gifts are wonderful throughout the year. My favorite type of gifts are the ones that are tasty and are also useful in another way such as presented in an attractive tin or boxes. When I saw From The Heart Gift Tower from GourmetGiftBaskets.com I was immediately struck by the attractive boxes and the ability to enjoy the treats and the boxes for months to come.

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Deluxe Junk Food Bucket Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Deluxe Junk Food Basket Review + Giveaway

Ever since I began this blog, I have stopped watching movies. There is something about watching something more than an hour, that seems like a huge time commitment on something that I may or may not enjoy.

With my husbands birthday approaching I was thinking of taking a night off and having a junk food and movie marathon with him. I knew that this was the perfect idea and the only thing in question was the snack and junk food that would be included.

Since we are such a junk food house when I saw this collection from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw the Deluxe Junk Food Basket I knew that this would be a good gift for my husband’s birthday and an accompanying movie night.

My favorite season has arrived – Award Season!!

When I met my husband for the first time I mentioned to him that if there was an award show on the television I would be sucked in to watch it. There is something magical, amazing and at times shocking. When there are awards shows on I watch the outfits, the categories and the speeches.

When I was contacted recently from KingofPop.com for a review and saw their The Critics Choice Gourmet Popcorn Sampler I thought this was the perfect way for me to join ranks in the upcoming awards season.
