Hello all. It’s a beautiful fall day (finally!) and I’m feeling good. Today I would like share my reviews of a few products I’ve tried recently.
I came across these at a health food store and was very excited becuase I fell in love with a Dole version a few years ago at a food show, but they never went to market. I had also found a few other varieties of freeze-dried bananas, but all were really expensive. These weren’t cheap either, but so delicious! About $2.40 for a small bag at the health food store, but I found them on Amazon for the equivalent of abut $1.80 per bag. They look a little funny so the “purple funk” name is appropriate, but they’re like a sweet, healthy chip! Cruncy and delicious. Perfect to eat plain or add to plain yogurt or oatmeal.
Kashi Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars
I’m not usually a big Kashi fan. I’ve tried a lot of different ones because I know they are healthy, but usually they taste too plain and grainy for my taste. My sister bought these for a recent road trip and I decided to give them a try. Yum! The chocolate on the top is a little gooey, more like jam, but it tastes good. Definitley the best of the Kashi bars in my opinion.
Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lipgloss
This stuff really does what it says – it stays put the entire day! I bought a daring dark mauve color called “relentless raisin”, applied it at 6am, and it was still going strong after 3 meals and a long sweaty workout without re-application! Even when it came time to wash it off around 8pm that evening, it took a little rubbing with my face wash. Love it! My only issue was that my lips got dry and I layered on a Clinique lip shear around lunch time, which got a little flaky, not a good combo I guess. I’ll try a plain lip gloss next time. Overall, I loved it!
So that’s it for my reviews today. Need to re-focus on work and eat my Kashi bar before heading out for a 5-mile run!
