Health Warrior Chia Bars Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Health Warrior sent us their new flavors to review and host a giveaway! Here's some info about them from their website:
Chia is the ultimate Superfood. Yes, it’s small, but don’t doubt its power; it earned the name ‘runner’s food’ by powering the Tarahumara Indians on their legendary long-distance runs. Before that, it fueled Aztec Warriors in battle and Aztec Messengers on their cross-empire journeys.
For us? We rely on it to conquer whatever challenges life throws in front of us. And so should you.

Protein. It does a body good. And Health Warrior Chia’s got it. But that’s not the end; the protein in Health Warrior Chia is a whole-food, plant-based protein, so your body can digest it easier. It also has a full amino acid profile, a rarity like the Sunday sleep-in, so your body (and your wallet) gets more bang for its buck.

More fiber in our diets would cure a lot of the country’s health problems. It’s critical for improving weight loss, decreasing risk of cardiovascular heart disease, decreasing bad cholesterol and blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of diabetes, and a bunch more. Oh, and in case you haven’t caught the trend, Health Warrior Chia has it. Lots of it.

Our Review: 9/10


We enjoyed ALL of the flavors. They were quite tasty! My favorite was the Apple Cinnamon and Jared's was the Chocolate PB. The only reason we gave them a 9 was because they were so tiny! We have big appetites and these were better as an after dinner treat instead of a snack to tide us over until our next meal.

In addition, our local hospital recommends all their patients with heart related problems to eat our peanut butter.
 
***********************************************************
Our Review: 9/10.
As you all know, my hubby and I LOVE Peanut Butter! We definitely enjoyed ALL of these flavors! They were all natural and didn't have anything artificial. On the ingredients list, the only thing listed was PEANUTS!!! How awesome is that! The only reason we gave them a 9 was that it was a little messy to handle.
You had to stir it with a special stirring utensil (which I think Jared had too much fun playing with..haha). It kinda spilled a little over the edges, but after it was mixed thoroughly and slapped on some toast, or a tortilla, it was MIGHTY DELICIOUS!

Matt's Munchies Review

Matt's Munchies sent us some of their fruit snacks to review!
Here's a little about their story from their website:
It is said that, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” As a long-time vegetarian and finicky snacker, Robert decided to create his own wholesome, satisfying munchies that would support a healthy lifestyle.
A banker by profession, Robert took over the kitchen and six months later, voila! Chef Robert emerged with amazingly tasty and nutritious premium fruit snacks. Robert named the new product Matt’s Munchies after his son, Matthew, who helped develop the unique flavors. With intentions as pure as their products Chef, Matt and Sous Chef Linda (momz) seek to brighten the snacking landscape together with their exciting munchies!
Chef Roberts Inc is a family owned and operated business. In 2009, the family moved their factory from New York to Santa Ana, CA. Brothers Joe and Sam are involved; it’s a family enterprise!

 **************************************************
Our Review: 9/10
 
Yes, even grown ups can play with their food ;)



These fruit snacks were JUST like fruit roll ups we remembered as kids!  Only thing different is that they are HEALTHY! They have NO GMOS, they have actual fruit in each snack, and they are filled with wholesome ingredients! They can get stuck in your teeth easily (which is the only reason we gave them a 9).

We enjoyed these a lot as an after meal treat. Our favorite flavors were Banana (Kelsey) and Raspberry Delight (Jared).


Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for Matt’s Munchies updates, contests, exclusive promotions and coupons just for our loyal customers.

10/10
I really really enjoyed these yogurt drinks. 
I first tried them by themselves and thought they were great. 
Then I added them as my drink while I ate breakfast and loved them!
 Lastly I added them to my fruit smoothies, and wow!!!
 I absolutely loved the consistency and flavor they provided. 
The taste was amazing also! I also gave my niece (5) and nephew (2) and they begged me for more. 
 I really like that the product ingredients are organic. 
 Lets me know that they care about what they put inside them. I highly recommend these drinks!

 Review: 8/10.
These bars were VERY tasty. They were definitely indulgent flavors. The only reason we gave them an 8 was because they weren't very big and didn't fill us up at all.  But, goodness, all of the flavors were SPOT ON for the dessert they were representing!

Jared's Review:
Breakfast blend, protein vanilla acai, acai blueberry pomegranate 
9/10
 
I really like these drinks. The three I've been able to try are great!
 The breakfast blend is my favorite. I drank those with my pb and toast and really enjoyed it. 
 The acai with blueberry and pomegranate was very good also. It had a lighter and sweeter taste to it.
 The protein was good too. Much more filling of course, but still really liked it. 
 I like the certified organic and non gmo ingredients. 
This shows me a company really cares about what they out into their bottles. 
These are great drinks!

The Peanut Principle sent me three gourmet nut butters to review. Here's a little info from their website:

With over 15 years experience in the nut business Shannon and Joe have gone completely NUTS!! Their Gourmet Nut & Seed butters are made with the highest quality ingredients including dry roasted organic nuts and seeds.

*********************************************************
Review: 15/10!
These were FABULOUS! 

We were sent the following flavors:
I Want S'more
Jungle a Peel
Sap Happy

We LOVE peanut butter so much and eat it SO OFTEN, that we put it on our WEDDING REGISTRY! hahaha. Now, for those of you who don't know, my husband is a bit of a Peanut Butter Snob. (He won't eat store brand and it has to be natural and taste good). I kid you not, the words out of his mouth after a couple days of trying all the flavors and putting them in different combinations with his morning toast and PB sandwiches on the golf course were" "This is the BEST peanut butter I've ever had!!!" That is major proof right there that this stuff is GOOOOOOOOD! 

:)

Please visit their website and order some for yourself. They have over 30 unique flavors!!
