It's been a while since I've done one of these BzzAgent Blog posts.



I was quite pleasantly surprised at how tasty these chips were. Everyone loved them. It should be noted, though, that even though they are Green Giant brand, they're not really a healthier alternative to traditional chips. If you're looking for a healthier alternative, don't be fooled by the Green Giant Branding. These might not be for you. But if you eat other chips already, you'll be alright.

Veggie Chips: The Veggie Chips are like a lighter Dorito, so I was pretty sure I'd like them. As soon as I opened my BzzKit, I opened this bag up and dug in. I was right. I liked them very much. When the kids got home, I shared some with them and they loved them, too. I gave my Sister-in-Law and Brother some as well and they liked them, too. I actually liked them so much that I ended up polishing off half the bag in one sitting all by myself.

Sweet Potato Chips: I was wary of these ones. They're very much like a thinner Sun Chip, which I like, but I HATE sweet potatoes, so I basically planned on giving this bag to my Brother's family to eat, since they all like sweet potatoes. I started off by giving each of the kids one of the small bags for an after school snack. They gobbled them up. I gave my Sister-in-Law one of the other small bags to taste before I definitely gave them the big bag. When I asked my Sister-in-Law and the kids what they thought of them, they told me that they actually didn't even taste like sweet potatoes and that I should try them. So, I opened the last little bag and warily ate one. They were right, it didn't taste like sweet potatoes at all. I kept the big bag, but I did share it with them because the kids liked them so much.

Like I said at the beginning, I was pleasantly surprised that I liked both flavors of chips. So much so, that I KNOW I'll be buying them in the future. I only have two minor complaints about them. #1, I wish they had at least a couple more flavors. #2, I kind of wish they were a little healthier, but that's mostly so I could have the excuse to eat them more often.

As part of this BzzCampaign, I got a coupon for one free Meijer Gallery Wrapped Canvas. I've been fairly obsessed with the idea of photo canvasses lately, so I was really excited for this campaign.

I decided to use my free Meijer Gallery Wrapped Canvas Print as a gift for my mom for Christmas.

I took a picture of my brother and his family. My brother took the camera card in to Meijer on his way to work the next day. He said it was a fairly quick and easy process.

The next day, I went to Meijer with my coupon and picked it up. I like that it was only a one day wait to get it. I was impressed with the quality. It was a nice sturdy frame and a clear, crisp print of my picture.

When my mom opened it on Christmas day, she loved it so much, she almost started crying.

The only thing I didn't really like is that the canvas is a little pricey. At $39.99, I can't really see anyone buying one very often. Maybe as a once a year thing. If they were even a little cheaper I might buy them much more often.

I signed up for this BzzCampaign wondering if Dakota would even eat the food. She can be kind of picky when it comes to her food, so I was crossing my fingers on this one.

When I got the food, she was reluctant to try it. I had to hand feed her the first few bites. After she got a taste, she went to town on the food I put in font of her. After she finished it, she frantically sniffed the floor, trying to find some more. I have to admit, I gave her another handful. For the next few days, she gobbled the food up as soon as it was set in front of her. I was happy she liked it so much.

Well, in the last couple days, she hasn't been gobbling it up so readily. In fact, she'll let it sit there until she's just too hungry to ignore it. I don't know if she gt tired of it, or if she's just mad that she hasn't been getting her wet food lately and just being the usual picky princess diva she usually is. I'm going to try hand feeding her tomorrow and seeing how she does with it, but I have a feeling she'll be wolfing it down again in a few days time. Especially if she gets some wet food before then.

Okay, so I was lucky enough to get picked for this BzzCampaign. Seriously, cookies? Sign me up! Right?

Well, I got my BzzKit the other day. I got TWO packages of Kroger's new "Truly Awesome Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies". I was already pretty excited. I opened up a box and was immediately a little disappointed. There are only 8 cookies in a box. Not really many for the size of box they're in. But they're a good size, definitely bigger than most of the packaged cookies out there. Also, they were a bit more crumbly than they looked on the box and in pictures. Not a big deal, really, but not quite what I was expecting.

I took my first bite. They weren't "truly awesome". I was further disappointed. Don't get me wrong, they were good. They had the crunch of a cookie that you'd baked a couple days before. They just weren't amazing. And then I got to the chocolate chips. Oh my. The chocolate chips in these things are AMAZING! Seriously, they're the best part of the cookie.

In order to get some other opinions, I gave my brother, sister-in-law, and all three kids a cookie to try. Everyone agreed that the cookie part was okay, but the chocolate chips were definitely the best part.

So, while they may not really be "Truly Awesome", they're still really good. And I will certainly be buying some in the future. If you really like chocolate, I'd give them a try.

"Truly Awesome Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies" are available at Kroger, Fred Meyer, and Ralph's. (You may also be able to find them in other Kroger Brand Family stores, such as Dillons, Hilander, City Market, Smith's, King Soopers, Fry's, Baker's, and Scott's. But I'm not 100% on that.)

SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Maker.

I'd LOVE to be able to make my own soda! I drink a lot of soda and it would be nice to be able to change it up from bottle to bottle without all the cans and boxes and plastic bottles. It would be really great to have soda at the touch of a button, made out of tapwater, whenever you want it.

Think of the money I'd save. And think of all the trash I'd save. I mean, I recycle my cans, but not even having them to start with? How great would that be? Even if I only replaced HALF of the soda I buy, it would make a substantial difference, monetarily and environmentally.

I really want to be a part of this BzzCampaign.

I got a Bzz Kit not too long ago for Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner. I received the start-up kit and some coupons.

I loved the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel, but this stuff is even better. One use and the toilet bowl was sparkling.

First off, I got the starter kit. This thing is so simple to use. The starter kit comes with the device and a can of the cleaner. It's really easy to use. Just pop the can in and slide the sleeve on, put the sprayer over the edge of the bowl, and you're ready to clean. Just hit the peddle with your foot and *BING*, your bowl is clean. A few seconds twice a day ensures a sparkly clean, fresh smelling toilet bowl.

Like I said, one use and the bowl was sparkling. It smells really nice, too. Not really a cleaner smell at all. There are two scents available, Sparkling Spring and Fresh Mountain Morning. The Starter Kit came with Fresh Mountain Morning. Really nice smell. I want to see what the Sparkling Spring smells like.

As awesome as this product is, I have two small complaints, both very minor. First of all, I don't know if it was just our toilet, or if it's a problem across the board, but the spray nozzle didn't fit right. When it sprayed, it went a little over the bowl. Just a little bit of a fine mist, but it did spray over. Tried adjusting the nozzle, but it didn't help. Not a big problem, but it would be nice if it didn't do it. The second complaint isn't really much of a complaint, since it actually is also kind of a plus about the product. It's so easy and fun to use that the kids might find it irresistible. We tried telling the kids to leave it to the adults, but one of them didn't hear us. He was a bit confused and thought you were supposed to use it after every flush. By the end of the day, the cleaner can was pretty much empty. A month's worth of cleaner gone in less than two days. But, on the plus side, the bowl is still pretty clean. Someone needs to pick up a new can of cleaner soon.

So, yeah, I really like this product. It's simple, fairly cheap (about $10-12 for the starter kit, $4-5 for a refill), and cleans great. The pros definitely outweigh the couple of small cons.

Bottom line: if you want a clean, fresh toilet bowl and don't want to spend a lot of time or money on it, go out and get the Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner. I wish I had enough money to mail out coupons to anyone that wanted them. Guess I'll have to just hand them out locally.

I got a BzzKit with lots of Spring cleaning products in it. Here's a review of a few of them.

Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel - I put this in the bowl last night and a few flushes later, the bowl was sparkling clean. No scrubbing and it looks like I spent 20 minutes scrubbing. I love this stuff. One 'disc' cleans for a week. One tube lasts 6 weeks. Also, the smell is pretty nice. It smells clean, but it isn't an overpowering cleaner smell.

Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Mega Shower Foamer - This stuff is even better than regular Scrubbing Bubbles. Spray it in the shower, leave it for a few minutes, a gentle wipe and your shower is sparkly clean. The shower is so clean, I almost don't want to use it. LOL.

Glade Spring Collection Candle ("Sparkle of Spring" scent) - The "Sparkle of Spring" scent has Lime, Ginger, and Vanilla. The Lime is very strong, the Vanilla comes at the end, but the Ginger gets kind of lost. It's a nice fresh Spring scent, but I wish the Lime was a little more subtle.

I haven't had a chance to use the Glade PlugIns Scented Oil Refill because I don't have the PlugIn warmer, but the scratch and sniff sticker on the front smells good.
