Sneaky Pete's Beverages Review and Giveaway


Who is Sneaky Pete?
Pete is a kind-hearted little rascal who is on a mission to share his delicious heart-healthy beverages with everyone he meets.

How did Sneaky Pete get his nickname?
It all started a couple of generations ago. Pete’s grandfather “Pop” would secretly brew his delicious oat based beverages for his family to enjoy. But grandfather was not alone! Little Pete would sneak into the workroom and observe the hidden formulation. One day grandfather caught Pete quietly sliding into the workroom and playfully called him “Sneaky Pete.”

From that day on Sneaky Pete’s grandfather taught him the healthy aspects of his recipe and the knowledge of the delicious fruit juices…they were actually brewed with oats. Grandfather shared his love of brewing delicious beverages, but more importantly his passion for being a little “sneaky” himself and sharing heart-healthy fiber drinks with his family and friends.

What does that mean for you?
Luckily, NOW Sneaky Pete is bringing his delicious oat-based beverages to you! Not only are they heart-healthy and have oatstanding nutritional value, they are delicious, too!

Hey Sneaky Pete fans…take advantage of our everyday FREE shipping – We have a special running this year for online orders. The code is SNEAKYBLOGGER and it gives the customer 15% off their total order online.

These were soooo yummy that I am saddened that I can only buy these at Hy-vee here. My family was sooo excited to receive these drinks that they were gone in very little time. There are 7 of us and only 5 flavors so a couple kids had to share. My absolute favorite was Raspberry Beret! When you unscrew the lid and take it off, the smell practically jumps up your nose. It smells so good! I love fruity smells so was perfect for me. My husband love grapes so he took the grape one and hid it! The flavors were true to the fruit that it was. It did not taste like oats at all. I really liked that they were only 40 calories each. That works for me when I am watching my calories and look for things low like this. I drink a lot of water but was glad to find a drink that I can have when water just doesn't seem to be working for me that day!

My family and I have eaten a lot of frozen type dinners. Some are good some are bad. Some are easy to make and some you might as well be making it homemade for all the work you have to do to it before eating. I have to say, we got this in the mail this morning to test and my son ate it already. He was nice enough to share a bit with me though. He couldn't say enough good things about it. One thing that was strongly mentioned is that they do not taste like microwaved noodles. He also said he liked that the amount of sauce actually covered all the noodles. Most frozen dinners are not like that at all. I was impressed at the flavor, myself. It had a nice zesty zing to it. Not the harsh tomato sauce taste you get alot. All in all this was the best one I tasted.

Just microwave for 3 1/2-4 1/2 minutes, let stand for 2 minutes stir and eat.
If you are on Weight Watchers this item has a point value of 7*

Other flavors:
Fettuccini Alfredo Bake
Lasagna with Meat Sauce
Chicken & Rice Cheddar Bake
Roasted Chicken and Potatoes
Ricotta & Spinach Ravioli & Chicken Marinara
Italian Sausage Pasta Bake

I am excited to try them all and see if they are all as good as the one I got to test and review!

Safe Hands review and Giveaway by co-blogger Niki

Their Story: SafeHands® began as a dream until founder, Dr. Jay, gathered a team of experts to develop an alternative to mainstream alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Dr. Jay’s goal was to ensure that the product not only killed over 99.99% of germs – but that the foam helped soothe, nourish and preserve the natural oils in skin. It dawned on Dr. Jay, as he successfully tested the product with his friends and family, that it was time to start a mission and SAFE the Planet one hand at a time, with a goal of educating people all over the world to the many benefits of Alcohol Free hand sanitizers.

Where they came from: Where did the name “safeHands®” come from? safeHands® began as a dream until founder, Dr. Jay Reubens, gathered a team of experts to develop a non-toxic, safe alternative to mainstream alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Dr. Jay's goal was to ensure the product not only kill over 99.99% of germs - but also the gel help soothe, nourish and preserve the natural oils in skin. It dawned on Dr. Jay, as he successfully tested the product with his friends and family, that it was time to start a mission and “safe” the world one hand at a time, with a goal of educating people all over the world to the dangers of using alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Who are the creators of safeHands®? Dr. Jay Reubens is the Founder and CEO of safehands®, the world’s first alcohol free hand sanitizer. Dentist by trade and alcohol free pioneer by choice, Dr. Jay is spearheading the alcohol free movement with safeHands® and his mission to “Safe the Planet!”™ Dr. Jay has joined forces with Dr. David Dyer, a leading peer-reviewed FDA consultant and scientist who specializes in Benzalkonium Chloride, the active ingredient in safeHands® products.

As most of you know, or have unfortunately experienced this winter season has been the worst for the FLU. So when I got the opportunity to try SafeHands alcohol free hand sanitizer I was excited. As a Mom of three on the go kiddos it is always important to keep them safe and free from germs passing. Who am I kidding that’s not always how it works but with SafeHands it made it easy and fun. In my box from SafeHands I received 5 different smells; I could not even get them out of the box before each kid was claiming their smell. First Impression: These smell really good and the smell is long lasting. We gave SafeHands a try for over three weeks so far, and we all agreed as a family that it is one of the best alcohol free hand sanitizers that we have tried. The bottles are a perfect size to take on the go. My teen threw hers in her backpack and ended up sharing it with friends. “What’s that Bubble Gum smell?” …oh it’s my hand sanitizer. All of her girlfriends wanted to know where she had got it. In addition to its great smell and the fact that it is alcohol free we also like the fact that it makes washing and sanitizing your hands fun. With smells like bubble gum, cool blue, tooty fruity. I also like that they were foam, which made it super easy to pump and run without the worry of it sliding off your hand and hitting the floor (OH NO!) and it made my hands soft and not have the chapped dried out feeling that some other sanitizers do. Our house will definitely be getting SafeHands again and using it to SAFE our household from unwanted germs!

Snooze Shade Car seat cover Giveaway

This is the wonderful SnoozeShade infant car seat cover.

SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats is the award-winning breathable sun and sleep shade for Group 0/0+ infant carriers with rigid carry handles. It protects baby from the sun or makes any time sleep time.

Use SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats day or night, on holiday and when travelling so your little one can sleep comfortably wherever you are.

SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats can help if you:

* think baby is struggling to switch off from outside distractions

* would like to encourage good sleeping habits when baby is out

* have older children whose schedules conflict with new baby’s nap time

* prefer other people not to disturb your sleeping child

This innovative baby product was created by a British mother to help babies and toddlers sleep for as long as they need in an infant carrier.

It's what parents have been waiting for - a simpler, safer, lightweight and secure alternative to hanging coats or blankets over a pram to help baby sleep on-the-go - and, above all, it works.

It is made from a double layer of soft breathable fabric with the highest level of protection from harmful UV rays, blocking over 98.5% of UVA and UVB (UPF50+).

SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats provides a shady, well-ventilated sleep environment by blurring the visual stimuli that can keep baby awake.

It’s the first sleeping-on-the-go solution for babies and it's great for holidays, in restaurants or any time you have to be out during baby’s nap time.

Benefits include:

* excellent sun protection - blocks more than 98.5% of UV rays (UPF50+)

* blurs visual distractions that keep babies awake

* use in several ways to help baby sleep or create valuable shade

* helps maintain your baby’s sleep routine wherever you are

* prevents well-meaning people from disturbing your sleeping baby

* made from soft stretchy breathable fabric which doesn’t retain heat

* use all year round to protect from sun, wind, chill and insects

* sneak-a-peek™ zip lets you check easily when baby is asleep

* quick to fit, easy to remove and folds up small

* fits most popular styles of Group 0 and 0+ infant car seats

* endorsed and supported by international baby sleep experts

Like the Stroller version, the SnoozeShade infant car seat cover is light and breathable and very easy & compact to transport every where you go. I also love that it's a universal fit so it will fit any car seat snug. I love using mine for long trips out side to keep the baby from harsh weather conditions.

If you don't have a SnoozeShade Car seat cover or Stroller cover I highly recommend getting one!

Want to win one!
