Each year after Easter, PEEPS® disappear from store shelves, leaving countless PEEPS® fans in the lurch until the next celebratory season rolls around. However, this year, fans can make every day a holiday thanks to the launch of PEEPS® MINIS™ – bite size, snackable marshmallow chicks that are sold year round in the everyday candy aisle.

PEEPS® MINIS™ are now available in delicious flavors of Strawberry Crème, Chocolate Crème and Sour Watermelon, in 24-count re-closeable standup bags that retail for approximately $3.99. These mini marshmallow chicks are about 40 percent the size of the traditional chicks and are each 14 calories, as well as gluten-free and fat-free.

The introduction of PEEPS® MINIS™ is the biggest launch in the brand’s 61 year history!

Nicole’s take:  Yum! PEEPS! And now you can get them all year round! PEEPS MINIS are bite size and the perfect sweet snack! We got to try all of the flavors and I liked the strawberry creme the best.  Noah, of course, liked the sour watermelon! I love how they melt in your mouth!

pomjuices

Hula: The Fun One

Say aloha to delicious! POM Hula combines the healthy goodness of 100% California-grown pomegranate juice with the tropical flavor of pure pineapple juice. It’s a satisfying refreshment you can enjoy anytime and anywhere. Drink and be Maui!

Coco: The Sporty One

POM has gone coco-nuts! POM Coconut combines the healthy goodness of 100% California-grown Wonderful pomegranates with the hydrating power of pure coconut water. It’s deliciously light refreshment you can enjoy anytime, anywhere. Go ahead. Crack one open.

Mango: The Wild One

Shangri-ooh-la-la! POM Mango is a delicious blend of pure California-grown pomegranate and mango juices. Refreshingly light and delectably drinkable, it’s the healthy goodness of POM like you’ve never tasted it before. Man-go for it!

These juice blends are available in single-serve 12oz bottles as well as our new family-friendly 48oz sizes.

Nicole’s take:  We love POM juices here and were really excited to try the new 100% Juice Blends! Of course we each have our own favorite – I love the coconut and Jamie loves the hula! I love coconut water so I wasn’t surprised I liked the coconut and it has some great properties in it to help keep you hydrated throughout the day! I like that you can buy them in a single serving bottle or also a larger family size bottle.  I love to grab n go but also enjoy having a glass while at home! I find these drinks very refreshing and am happy to have a 100% juice drink!

By now you know exactly what caught my eye in this recipe from Amanda @ A Few Shortcuts.  Anything with the word BEACH in it snaps my brain right into place.  Beach Bum Chex Mix sounds exactly what I should be eating since I am a self-proclaimed beach bum!  I am very fond of Chex Cereals and Goldfish crackers and the seasoning used for this sounds like it would more likely appeal to kids than the traditional recipe.  100% a winner on all accounts!

Beach-Bum-Chex-Mix-400x600Each week I will highlight one of Amanda’s fabulous recipes. If you don’t have the ingredients, you could easily print and save the recipes for later use!

Back to school health is important to me! I was a teacher before I went to law school and it’s important to start the school year off on the right foot – a healthy one! Getting a physical once a year to ensure your child has the right shots and is healthy is a traditional way for summer to come to an end and the school year to start! While you’re busy shopping for supplies, backpacks and clothes, you might forget those required BTS vaccinations. Not only are they important for your child’s health, but many states and schools won’t let kids start unless they are up-to-date.

MinuteClinic offers a variety of back-to-school vaccinations so that your kids don’t miss their first day. It is important to know your state’s requirements for vaccinations such as meningitis and pertussis.  Make sure to check out the requirements listed here by state!

MinuteClinic also offers pre-participation sports physicals for just $39 (that’s $20 off!). Even if it’s not required, it’s important to make sure your little ones are healthy & safe to participate.  Also, if your kids are leaving home for college make sure they start off on the right (and healthy!) foot with our college physicals.  I love that Minute Clinic just has you covered! In all of these important life situations Minute Clinic is thinking of you and your family and making their services super affordable and so practical.

MinuteClinic is also offering a FREE $22 coupon book when you visit. (No purchase necessary. Available while supplies last through 12/1/14.)

Disclosure: I have received promotional consideration from MinuteClinic.

Shaving season is in full-swing and Gillette Venus has you covered when it comes to a skipped shave or if you just missed a few hairs. The Venus Snap with Embrace Razor is perfect for a close long-lasting shave for spontaneous, on-the-go moments like an impromptu date night or last minute gym class.

In the spirit of summer fun and adventure, Gillette Venus invites you to embrace all the on-the-go, leg-bearing moments. Venus is partnering with YouTube star Tessa Violet to help celebrate these ”wish I’d shaved” moments. Now through July, women can share these funny, sometimes even embarrassing moments via the #InASnap hashtag on Twitter. Tessa will use her favorites as inspiration to create a series of music videos celebrating spontaneity. These videos, created from women’s real life “wish I’d shaved” moments, will then be published and shared on Violet’s & Gillette Venus’ social channels.

To see what #InASnap moments are brought to life, follow the #InASnap hashtag and @GilletteVenus on Twitter and visit the Gillette Venus YouTube page to check out the music video series. You can check out her first video, below!
