G.H. Cretors Popcorn Dresses Up for Holidays with Fall-Flavored Caramel Corn

G.H. Cretors is bringing your favorite Holiday Flavors to their amazing caramel corn.  

I did a review of G.H. Cretors caramel corn several months ago, and I couldn't wait to try their New Seasonal Popcorns.

Not only is G.H Cretors caramel corn delicious it is made of the best ingredients. 
Non-GMO Project Verified, completely free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.
It is also kosher and naturally gluten-free, so snack on....

The seasonal popcorn comes in three different flavors: Pumpkin Spice, Orchard Apple and Double Chocolate with Almonds and Cashews.

If you're one of those people who wait all year for September to roll around because of Pumpkin Spice flavored everything, the Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn is definitely for you.

It's made with real pumpkin, whole pumpkin seeds, large walnut pieces, and an autumn-inspired spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.

The Orchard Apple Caramel Corn has such an interesting flavor, a little sweet and tart, It combines caramel corn with large slices and chunks of real Granny Smith and Fuji apples.  

I love the combination of popcorn and slices of dried apples, it was so original and flavorful.

Last but not least and my favorite (because I'm a chocoholic) is the Double Chocolate Caramel Corn with Almonds and Cashews.  Made with white and dark chocolate, whole almonds, and whole cashews, this version is to die for. So delicious, I can eat a bag in one sitting!

The Limited Edition flavors will be available in 8-ounce bags for around $5.99 in natural food and mainstream grocery stores. 

The Limited Edition Tin will include an 8-ounce bag of Orchard Apple Caramel Corn, an 8-ounce bag of Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn, and a 5-ounce bag of Chicago Mix for around of $19.99.

Check out the Store Locator.

Disclosure: I received a sample of G.H Cretors Seasonal Caramel Corn in exchange for this review.  However, all opinions are 100% my own.

The New Chicken Burger from McDonald's Tampa Bay #McDChickenBurger + Giveaway


McDonald’s of Tampa Bay unveils the latest in burger innovation by introducing one of the first-to-market ground Chicken Burgers. 

Only local participating Tampa Bay McDonald’s customers will get the first taste of a unique and satisfying burger experience, using quality ground chicken (with no artificial colors or flavors). Created and crafted by local Tampa Bay McDonald’s Owner/Operators in partnership with their chicken supplier, Keystone Foods, the new Chicken Burger is grilled to perfection and perfectly complemented with tasty veggies and tempting, savory sauces all carefully assembled on a new gourmet bun.

I visited my local McDonald's to be one of the first to try the New Chicken Burger.

The chicken burger comes in two options, The Classic and The Signature
  • The Classic starts with a quarter pound ground chicken patty, topped with red onions, lettuce, tomatoes and Ranch sauce. The Classic Chicken Burger has 390 calories
  • The Signature is the same juicy ground chicken patty, offering grilled onions with lettuce, tomatoes and a tangy and sweet “Signature” sauce. The Signature Chicken Burger has 400 calories.
  • Both burgers are crafted using a new gourmet bun.  Each also offers 28 grams of protein.
I tried the Signature Chicken Burger and it tasted great.  I was a little skeptical at first, but the grilled onions and "signature" sauce gave it great flavor. Topped with the gourmet bun, I can't wait to try the Classic next time.  

Did you know?  You can substitute a chicken burger patty on a comparable beef sandwich, though an upcharge may apply.

GIVEAWAY: One Kids and Deals reader will Win a $20 Arch Card from McDonald's Tampa Bay.

Gardening With Kids: Garden in a Glove Project #CampSci

With help from Monsanto #CampSci, we were able to keep the kids busy this summer with an fun and educational Science Camp at home.

Our favorite science camp activity was Garden in a Glove.  It was easy to execute and perfect to get several kids involved.

For Garden in a Glove, you start by placing a wet cotton ball (squeeze excess water) in each finger of a plastic glove.

  • Next, place 3-5 seeds on each cotton ball.  Use a different veggie for each finger.  Make sure to label each finger.

  • Then, place a second wet cotton ball in each finger, and make sure the seeds are between the two cotton balls.

  • Blow air into the glove and seal it.  Place where your glove will have good sun exposure.
  • After 5 to 9 days, your seeds should be getting too big for glove.  
  • Move them to mini carton boxes filled with soil.
  • Place them outside, water them, and watch them grow.

Ours are still growing, we can't wait to eat our new veggies...

Amazingly Beautiful Facial Skin Care : Review & Giveaway (3 Winners)

How cute are these personalized bottles!  I was so surprised to find my name of the bottle of Amazingly Beautiful Skin Care system I received from Trusted Health Products.

Turns out every bottle comes to you personalized, it's such a sweet touch.  

So what is Amazingly Beautiful?
Amazingly Beautiful uses a rare combination of live fruit, nut and plant extracts to feed your skin cells and promote youthful, moist, beautiful glowing skin.

The skin care system comes with A.M. Moisturizer and a P.M Revitalizer: 

  • The  A. M. Moisturizer Ingredients are 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, avocado and olive.
  • The P. M. Revitalizer Ingredients are 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, evening primrose and apricot.

I love that the Amazingly Beautiful products are 100% pure – No preservatives, parabens, GMOs, synthetic chemicals or additives of any kind.  It the best thing you can give to your skin.

I was worried about putting oil on my skin morning and night, and whether it would make my face greasy, but it hasn't happened at all. It actually feeds your skin what it needs in order for it to be luminous, beautiful and healthy.

The instructions are to put 2 to 3 drops on each cheek.  Your skin recognizes Amazingly Beautiful as food and therefore will be hungry for it and may require more drops initially.  I've seen how I've slowly started to need less drops each day.

I've really enjoyed using Amazingly Beautiful daily.  My skin feels healthier, and I love knowing that because of all the great ingredients it will take the place of anti-aging creams, cleansers firming creams, exfoliaters, moisturizers, day/night creams, make-up removers, body lotions, nutrient pacts and more.

There is so much more information about Amazingly Beautiful, make sure to find out all the details HERE.

SPECIAL OFFER:  For a limited time, the manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They would love to have my readers try out Amazingly Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer (for women) or The Man A.M. Moisturizer (for men) and agreed to send one bottle FREE if you would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge. This is a one-time only offer!  They also agreed to include 2 eye-opening reports – The Poisons You Put On Your Face Everyday and Why Your Skin Care Products Have Never Worked: The Truth Revealed .”  That’s a total value of over $40.00. Click here to get your FREE Bottle and FREE reports now!”

GIVEAWAY: Three (3) Kids and Deals readers will each win their own bottle of Amazingly Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer (for women).

Two of CW's most popular shows are coming out on DVD, and you have a chance to win a copy for yourself.  
About The Vampire Diaries The Complete Sixth Season
The Vampire Diaries continues its sixth season with more delicious drama to sink your teeth into. In season five, after a passionate summer with Damon, Elena headed to Whitmore College with Caroline, not knowing Bonnie sacrificed her life for Jeremy’s. Meanwhile, Stefan and Caroline’s friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents. In the shocking season finale, Damon, fearing he would lose his loved ones on the crumbling Other Side, made a huge sacrifice to bring them all back — with catastrophic and heartbreaking results. Season six follows the characters’ journey back to each other as they explore the duality of good versus evil inside themselves. Matt Davis reprises his role as Alaric Saltzman, recently returned from The Other Side. Plus, the season will make you misty-eyed as the departure of a major character will turn lives upside down and leave us asking what happened to Mystic Falls.

About The Originals The Complete Second Season

As Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson returned to the vibrant, supernaturally charged city of New Orleans in season one, he was stunned to learn — along with his siblings Elijah and Rebekah — that Hayley, a werewolf, was pregnant with his child, and his vampire protégé, Marcel, whom the Original siblings had thought long dead, was ruling the French Quarter. Soon, a bloody war escalated between vampires and witches — the stakes raised by powerful teenage witch Davina and by Klaus’s bond with Cami, a student with a painful past — and a ruthless pack of wolves seized the opportunity to stage a violent coup. Now, in season two, a new status quo must be adjusted to, as the newly empowered werewolves control the city. Klaus struggles with weaknesses as Elijah desperately tries to save Hayley — now a hybrid — from a vicious spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, with the re-emergence of several Mikaelsons, “family is power” takes on new meaning.
