Kroger skillet meals and sides

I got the free sausage rigatoni from BzzAgent for my husband, myself and our 3 year old. It had a good flavor, but the amount in the bag small and it was skimpy on the sausage. I liked that the Rigatoni was aldente after being cooked. My favvvvvorite part is that it was one pan and 10 minutes. I will purchase this. But next time two bags and might try a different variety. I also got the garlic bread. Mmmmm. Tastes just like the name brand and cooks as quickly as the skillet meal. Add the salad and you are done in 15 minutes start to table. The bag of salad a little smaller than name brand, but I didn’t verify. The greens were mixed and fresh and ready to eat. My husband is a big salad person and thought it was comparable to name brand.

Green Mountain Coffee

Fair trade is new to me, so when I was allowed in the Green Mountain Coffee bzz campaign I was so excited. Green Mountain is the largest purchaser of Fair Trade Certified coffee, Green Mountain Roasters, Inc. knows the quality is second to none. That’s why they offer a wide selection of Fair Trade coffees, including brand-new Three Continent Blend, which combines the flavors and aromas of South America, Africa, and Asia into one harmonious Extra Bold Blend. I told them I got the Extra Bold Blend from bzzagent and it FINALLY got chilly here in the TX morning and it was amazing to have an excellent cup of coffee in the morning.

It has a rich taste without being obnoxiously heavy and leaves no bitter aftertaste in your mouth. I will definitely be buying this coffee in the future.

Lysol Power and Free

Thanks again to Bzzagent I got to try some more products for free. I was sent a bottle of Lysol Power and Free cleaner and a canister of Lysol Power and Free wipes. They are made with peroxide instead of bleach. I was really skeptical about this working because I have been a diehard bleach cleaner user, but when I used this on my hard water stained sink in the bathroom it really worked. I especially liked that there wasn’t a bleach smell. There was a fresh clean scent and everything sparkled. I definitely will buy this and very thankful I got to try it for free from bzzagent.

More about Kroger and their frozen yogurt bars!

I had my sister’s family over this Memorial Day weekend. We grilled and ate hearty, but for some reason we always want to skimp on dessert even though we just glutted out. I was thankful to have some of these fresh frozen treats. I told my sister I #gotitfree from bzzagent and that they are low in fat and sugar and guilt free. Her husband and kids were listening intently. They all tried the frozen yogurt bars and agreed that they are sensational. I handed them some coupons so they could swing by Kroger on the way home and get some for themselves.

Kroger has a variety of ways for you to beat the heat and indulge without guilt. Including NEW Kroger Yogurt Smoothie Bars, Fudge Bars, Fruit Bars and Ice Cream Sandwiches, these are delicious flavors that provides a sweet treat anytime, without having to think twice about eating them. I was able to try them free from bzzagent #gotitfree and I’m so glad I did. I wouldn’t have even thought of a store brand before this campaign invite. I even feel good about giving them to my son.

What a novel idea. This made my macaroni healthier, yet creamier and tastier. It was a huge hit with my husband and 3 year old. I am thankful from #bzzagent that #igotitfree, otherwise, I’m not quite sure I’d had ever tried it. It is plain, which is also hard to find nowadays, so the fact that it is accessible in a Greek yogurt makes it even better. Fage, in my opinion, is the best Greek yogurt out there. True texture and flavor. The plain works out so great in cooking because it takes on the flavor of the food instead of taking away from it. Well done Fage.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream

BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage. With that being said, I don’t think it FULLY lives up to what it says it does. I like that it is mineral based and extremely light on my face because I live in TX and it’s warm and I don’t want a bunch of stuff on my face. I have a few blemishes, even at 35, sigh, and this doesn’t really cover them, which I don’t expect it to, however, it sort of cakes around them for a little while. It did control the oil on my face for several hours and it is light enough that no powder was needed over it, which is perfect because I don’t wear powder. All in all it was an ok cream. Did NOTHING to reduce my blemishes or shrink my pores.

Pros:
Relatively Cheap & Generous amount
feels really light once applied
Available at most/major drugstores/walmart/target (No shipping!)
Silky texture going on, blends nicely

Cons:
A bit caked on around blemishes making them actually look more prominent.
No skin improvement, It did NOTHING for my pores

I appreciate BZZAGENT for allowing me to try this. #GotItFree, yay me!
