Over the past few months I have received a few new fun products in the mail that I wanted to share with all of you!
I love using powdered peanut butter in my smoothies and my oatmeal when I really want to add concentrated peanut butter flavor. I usually buy PB2 brand, but I was pumped to know that PB & Co. is stepping into the powdered peanut butter market too with its Mighty Nut products.
From the company website: “To create each batch of Mighty Nut, we take quality USA grown peanuts, roast them, and press them to remove most of the fat. What remains is protein, fiber and delicious peanut buttery taste. Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter can be rehydrated and used as a spread or dip, or as an ingredient in baking, cooking or smoothies and it is available in four delightful varieties.”
PB & Co. Mighty Nut comes in four flavors – Original, Chocolate, Flax & Chia and Vanilla. I have only sampled the original and chocolate, but I am definitely intrigued by the vanilla flavor. However, I have to admit that the chocolate flavor was a little too sweet for me so I am thinking the plain peanut butter or flax and chia flavors would be more up my alley.
Since I have been a huge fan of salty chips and snacks this pregnancy, I jumped at the chance to try The Better Chip when an account manager from the company reached out to me. As my regular readers know, I have been going through family size bags of kettle cooked salt and vinegar potato chips this entire pregnancy, so I thought it would be a good idea to try something a little healthier – enter The Better Chip! These chips come in five flavors and my husband loves salty snacks as much as I do right now so I gave Tim the bags of Jalapenos and Chipotles, while I took the Fresh Corn, Spinach & Kale and Beets.
I honestly think that my favorite flavor of the five was the Fresh Corn (I guess I am just simple!), followed surprisingly by the Beets flavor! Tim liked the Jalapenos flavor a lot too so I think I would have been a fan of that one as well. The Spinach & Kale flavor was just okay in my opinion, but it definitely tasted the healthiest so I wish it was my favorite! The ingredient list on all of the flavors is pretty short and simple, and although these chips can never be as healthy as the vegetables and spices they portray, they are still a pretty decent snack to grab when you’re craving something salty.
The last shipment I received was from a company called ZeroWater and they wanted to promote their promote their product the ZeroWater Portable tumbler, which I received in blue.
I have always kept a Brita pitcher in my refrigerator, but I’ve never had a grab-and-go water bottle with a filter. I had really high hopes for this product and wanted to love it, but sadly I haven’t found myself taking it on the go very often. The reason for this is that the filter drains very, very slowly and since you can only fill it up about 1/3 of the way before waiting for the water to filter through, you can spend a ton of time waiting at the drinking fountain when out in public. I do however use it quite a bit at home since I have more time to wait. I will usually filled it up 1/3 of the way and then do something else, fill it up another 1/3 of the way, and on and on until my bottle is full. I do this because I love how the filtered water tastes, but I would much rather fill up a filtered pitcher at home and then fill up regular water bottles from there.
Just an FYI that I shared my concerns with ZeroWater and they let me know that the Tumbler does fill up slowly, but the pitcher is a better product for quicker filtration!
