Goodies Box September

My September Goodies Box had a bit of a journey to get to me.  It got shipped out before I moved, but arrived after I moved so then it had to get forwarded and apparently they don’t pay to forward packages so we had to pay $9.14 to pick it up. (When the box is $7 to begin with) So that kind of stunk, but I wanted to try all the goodies so we paid the ransom.

Chocolate Stuffed Marshmallows

by Gud-Fud

Sweet tooth? Can’t beat this! No fat, no trans fat and 50 calories per package. These marshmallows are stuffed with chocolate for a great snack.


I thought these were good, but you barely tasted the chocolate, it was a bit overpowered by marshmallow.  Nice and bite sized though

Sun Dried Tomato, Basil & Feta

by Kashi

Sweet sundried tomato, tangy feta and bright basil add Mediterranean flair to air-popped chickpea crisps. They’re equally delicious and nutritious. 

Thought that the flavoring on this one was a bit over powering, but still good enough to eat.


by MJM Distributors

Rich and sweet with floral flavor and aroma, this pure honey is made with thyme flowers grown on the Greek Isles. Add nature’s sweetness to your day. 
This was excellent honey! 


by Nestle Pure Life

Purified water combined with a delicious “splash” of natural lemon flavor. This zero-calorie drink is the perfect alternative to soda.
I liked that it was 0 calories and not just boring old water, but the lemon flavoring was a bit too strong.

Savory Tea

by Numi Tea

Skip the milk and honey; this is not your typical tea. Made with veggies, herbs and decaf tea, it’s a robust beverage that’s savory and substantial. 

This tea scares me – Tomato Mint? So I’ve yet to try it.


Gimbal’s Scottie Dogs Licorice

by Gimbal’s

Soft, chewy and sweet, these adorable dog-shaped candies are bursting with the bold flavor of licorice root and pure anise.Pretty big dogs, but good.

Fuji Apple Chips

by Bare Fruit

Slowly baked in a wood-burning oven to intensify the natural flavor of Fuji apples, these chips are sweet, crisp and satisfying. 
2 thumbs up on these.

Book Review: A Tale of Two Mommies

A Tale of Two Mommies is about a little boy who has two Mommies – Momma and Mommy.  He meets up with a couple of other kids at the beach who ask him all sorts of questions about which of his mommies does things for him.  The boy answers with either Momma, Mommy, Neither Or Both!  Everything is in rhyme so it has a bit of a sing-song feel to it and is super adorable.

I think this is a great book to teach other kids about families that have two mommies – they’re no different than any other family – they still are there for you when you have a bad dream or skin your knee and give you lots of love!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

A Tale of Two Mommies is a beach conversation among three children. One boy asks another boy about having two mommies. A young girl listening in asks some questions too.
True to a child’s curiosity, practical questions follow. “Which mom is there when you want to go fishing? / Which mom helps out when Kitty goes missing?” To which he answers: “Mommy helps when I want to go fishing. / Both Mommies help when Kitty goes missing.”
A Tale of Two Mommies is intended for 4-8 year olds.
This book lets us look inside one non-traditional family, a same sex couple and their son. As the children talk, it’s clear this boy lives in a nurturing environment where the biggest issues are the everyday challenges of growing up.
