@Popchips Cheddar & Sour cream ridges
I was skeptical about. While I do Like some of their products, I wasn’t sure about cheddar and sour cream together. The verdict??? They’re good. They combined just the right amounts of each to be able to taste them both. Another thing unlike most sour cream (and onion) chips they usually taste very salty. If this has any, I’d be surprised.I let my mother try one when I opened them, she liked them but got an after taste she did not care for. As for myself I did not, but after eating a few myself a but quickly, I’m not digging the aftertaste. Maybe need to have a drink or snack on something between each chip.

Fabreze One Fabric and air mist starter kit
I was almost out of my air effects bottle which is 9.7 .oz and you’d save to buy a whole new bottle.
This is the Fabreze One Fabric and air mist starter kit; normally $5.99 with the refill as $3.99. I think that’s a better deal than having to buy the fabric and air must separate…even though my fabric re-fresher is 27 oz.The one bottle saves space and money. You can find it at Target but I greatly hope I can find it in Walmart.
I received the Orchid scented spray. I sniffed the bottle before spraying as my family and I tend to not always like the same scents. Some aggravate my allergies, others my mother’s. For once we both agree on a scent, so I hope I can find this Scent when we go to Walmart, or something else that’s light and flowery…maybe lavender.
You can spray a short spritz or a long (non aerosol) spray to gently clean odors away without heavy perfumes (mom or I do not like) and no dyes.
I think this formula works better than the previous ones in the air as well as on fabric. I’ll put it this way…I have an old blanket from the 90’s I just can’t let go of so I made this the subject of the test and would you believe it actually worked. Honestly the previous solution worked, but not as well to clean the
smell(s) away from this blanket. ONE removed the deep down layers and lasted for a longer time as well.
Crispy Green Crispy fruit
The card Influenster sends when you get one of their sampling boxes notes they send one out of 6 flavors; I received the Apple, but sadly the card does not note what all the flavors are.
These 100% All Natural Freeze Dried Apples are nice thick pieces, with a little crunch.. so no more excuses you want some crispy chips and reach for a potato chip. These have got crunch, they are light only 40 calories 0 from Fat, they don’t taste overly sweet like someone added sugar, and looking at the nutrition info again, it’s only 7 grams of sugar which I think is less than a ripe juicy apple. I will tell you something.. I will be looking for these at Walmart when I go I just can’t decide if I want to get a 6 pk..(wonder if they come as assorted flavor packages..if not then THAT is how I let them know to improve on the product, as well as need bigger slices, not just thick but full slices, (they are more like a half of a slice)
A .36 oz. Bag is supposed to be $1.49 and a 6-pk of bags for $7.99 and I have found a list of the flavors. Wow I can have a ‘chippy’ fruit salad (yeah sorry that joke fell flat even with me)

Orgain Protein Bars
Twitter & Instagram @Drinkorgain
Now I have a bit of a beef with Protein bars…
- I have yet to see one that is actually appetizing looking.
- Many taste like someone put a dumpster in a blender.
- Many don’t even look like it’s made of what it says
- They rarely taste like what they say they are supposed to.
As you may be able to see from the image, I got the Cookie Dough flavored version. No it tasted NOTHING like Cookie dough.
As for the taste, it was either passable or I was so hungry when I ate it that I just didn’t notice.
(I usually keep something in my purse in case I’m not hungry in the morning or not able to eat breakfast before I run out the house)
I would say it’s passable cause there have been times I was super hungry, ate a protein bar and it still had a nasty taste, but Orgain needs to improve on the flavor of this.
Burt’s Bees Protein powder
Had to wait a bit as our blender died and had yet to find a new one; thankfully a week before my deadline Walgreen’s had one on sale.
I tried this first with just a taste of the powder, and it might be OK enough to just use in some water.
So the new blender gets blessed by Burt’s Bees (plant based) protein with 1 cup banana, 10oz Orange juice and 3/4 of frozen blueberries smoothie with a scoop (I used a heaping teaspoon.) Of the protein powder. It tasted good except the banana wasn’t ripe enough for me, I could still taste the orange juice a bit (I’d rather use pom juice to make my smoothies or even skim milk.)
I prefer fresh fruits and berries to frozen, tastes so much better. However I don’t think I put enough of powder in. It didn’t make me feel satisfied or full.(so I would not snack late night)
I will say one thing, when I closed what I left in the pouch it came in…some of the powder overflowed out and it felt like silk or satin. I will have to experiment with this and making smoothies. The ‘cups’ that came with my blender are more like a tall slim 25 .oz pitcher, so a scoop may not be enough for that size, although what I made was 1/2 or 3/4 of 25 oz. (I think it’s as long as my forearm! So basically that’s breakfast and lunch in one cup er let’s call that pitcher cause calling it a cup just does not work for me.
So I’m still not sure about this one, other than you’d probably be able to just put it in my water and just drink it that way.
Orabrush A DenTek brand tongue cleaner
So far I already have tried a tongue scraper and have 2 round tongue brushes, one with hard bristles and the other soft.
The bristles on this subject are plastic and sort of look like a cat’s tongue.
Using the Dentek brush, I don’t know if the bristles really do anything, but that darker pink, at the top of it, works as a scraper. Now even if it’s not meant to work as a scraper, it’s a better one than one (at the top) in the left image, which is also from the Dentek subdivision which I’ve trashed recently wasn’t a good design compared to this new brush/scraper design. There are times my tongue gets that feeling like it’s been soaked in cotton, and that’s when it’s a great time to use this brush/scraper.
I would say definitely a step up from past designs but I still think it a shame these companies haven’t been able to successfully combine a toothbrush and a tongue scraper/brush design. The one’s I’ve had on the back of the toothbrush are not wide enough, and the scrape design just doesn’t work. I wonder if they could make a toothbrush in this fashion so that instead of having to buy a separate item and like me forgetting to use it after… To just combine the two.
#Orabrush A DenTek brand tongue cleaner
Mom likes this stuff so I told her when she has it I’ll have a taste. For me I have finally found something that grosses me out enough to literally gag repeatedly!
I think my quote was…”It tastes like slimer”
Now mom on the other hand says it tastes good. So if you already like the stuff, you will like it.
(Should have used the denttek brush to help get the flavor off my tongue
