Giveaway: Win Laundry Detergent

Win Laundry Detergent

Workout clothes get stanky.  There’s no getting around that.  Whether you’re hiking, biking, running, or whatever, your clothes are going to smell.  My workout gear gets gross.  I sweat in places that no one wants to talk about.  So my gear after one use smells gross.  I’ve tried so many things to get them clean and nothing has worked.  Even DIY soaps and methods that are guaranteed to get the stank out, do not work.  Oh sure the gear comes out of the laundry OK but there’s still always that faint workout smell in the background.

I’ve been wanting to try Win detergent for ages and I finally got a chance!  Win sent me the detergent to test out and I can share the love!  Win will be giving away detergent to a lucky reader as well!

Win recently came out with a dye free and fragrance free version as well.  They have also revamped their packaging, making the bottles bigger but have not increased the price.  Still the same price but now for almost 50% more detergent for your money.

Personally I prefer the dye and fragrance free version but the original isn’t bad!  The scent isn’t overpowering but pleasant and even perfect for the fellas who want to get their gear clean.

The detergent worked great at getting my workout clothes clean and smelling fresh!

Review: Stoneyfield Oikos Greek Yogurt

Stoneyfield Greek Yogurt

Stoneyfield Greek Yogurt

Hi gang!  Kristina at Stoneyfield contacted me about their Greek style yogurt called Oikos.  She offered to send me some coupons to give the yogurt a try and review for you all.  Of course I agreed!  I love yogurt and free yogurt is always welcome in this house.

I will say right off the bat that I love Stoneyfield yogurt.  And if we have yogurt in this house that is not Greek style, then it’s Stoneyfield Farms yogurt.  Their yogurt is organic and comes in many varieties and flavors.  Our fave being Whole Milk French Vanilla with cream on top.  Oh yeah that yogurt is some very creamy goodness.  The vanilla being just enough for flavor and sweetness but not overpowering.  Rocky gets the Whole Milk plain yogurt.  We really do love the stuff!  It can be tricky to find in my area though and I’m not sure why.  I also have a lot of trouble finding the Oikos Greek yogurt but I think its popularity is starting to increase.

Since Kristina sent me a very generous coupon package that included coupons for FREE Oikos.  I actually had a run-in when purchasing the yogurt. :p  The cashier at Whole Foods didn’t seem to believe that I would have coupons for free products.  She looked over my coupons for about 5 minutes (no really, she did) before entering them into the register.  And then since some of the yogurts said, “Extra 10% Free”, that made them a different weight not matching what was approved on the coupon.  She called a manager over to see if she could still sell us the yogurt.  I guess she missed the concept of what an “Extra 10% Free” actually meant.  The manager of course, said it was fine.  Jeesh! I’ve never been scrutinized before over a coupon!

Testing it out

Testing it out

I bought three varieties, Plain, Blueberry, and Vanilla.  All of them were 0% fat and I actually prefer my yogurt to have some fat in it so I was a little skeptical.  I was surprised by the creaminess of the yogurt. It wasn’t quite as thick as I would have liked but it was much thicker than I was expecting for a nonfat Greek style yogurt.

The blueberry I had straight and thought it was really good.  It wasn’t overpoweringly sweet like some fruit yogurts can be (Chobani for example, that yogurt is way too sweet for me and I can’t eat it).  This still had the tartness of Greek yogurt and the fruit was on the bottom providing a nice mix-in and texture.

The Vanilla flavor I used in a fruit salad.  It provided a nice balance to the fresh fruit along with adding an additional flavor in the background.  The vanilla had the least thickness and having it with fruit worked out for me.  I don’t think it’s something I could eat plain or with granola.

The plain flavor I had mixed with granola.  It was perfectly tart and could be used as a sub for sour cream or made into a savory dip.  It was the thickest of the bunch and went very well with the granola mix-in.

Fage is still my favorite because it’s extremely thick, almost like a cream cheese, and I love that.  However, I would definitely reach for the Oikos for a backup yogurt.  And if I’m making a fruit salad then I’m going to use the Vanilla Oikos for that only because it does such a nice job mixing and pairing with the fruit.  If you like yogurt and are thinking about trying out some Greek style yogurt, Oikos flavored yogurts would be a great intro into the world of Greek Yogurt!

Would you like to try some?

Try it!

Try it!

Because Kristina would love to send you some coupons as well!  I should have spread the coupons out for the picture, but I promise it’s a lot of coupons!  There are 6 coupons for FREE Oikos and then a whole booklet full of coupons for a variety of Stoneyfield products including frozen yogurt!  Which is good stuff!

Just leave a comment saying you’d like to try some and I’ll pick a winner on Friday by random number generator.  Now I realize there are some pretty sweet Stoneyfield contests going on right now, but Free is Free guys!  So if you want to try some just comment away!

Review: Kettle Brand Jalapeno Chips AND GIVEAWAY

Ooooo package!

Ooooo package!

Hello my pretties!  If you read my Daily Eats section, you probably remember that I got a secret package in the mail not long ago.  And then you’ve probably noticed me stuffing my face with chips more often.  You get the gold star if you connected the two. ;)

My BFF, Janet, over at Kettle Brand emailed me to let me know that they were sending me a package of chips as a “Thank you” for reviewing them on my blog.  How’s that for customer service?! Kettle rocks the house when it comes to interacting with their customers.  Seriously, other companies could learn a thing or two from them.  They also gave me a shoutout on their monthly newsletter, Chip Chat.  Did you know they had one?  Yup, full of Kettle Chip goodness.  You can sign up to receive it via their website.  And how clever is the name, Chip Chat?!  I fall more in love with Kettle every day.

I eagerly awaited my package curious to what it would hold.  Because it was shipped with FedEx, I was able to receive my package on a Saturday!  It came at the perfect time and I was totally blown away at the size of the box.  Holy cow!  Let’s open it and see what’s in there.



Whoa!  That’s a lot of chips, yo.  Since it was Saturday, I knew that Janet probably wasn’t in her office, so I made a mental note to email her first thing Monday morning and thank her for the wonderful gift.  I won’t force you to count but that’s 15 bags of chips.

Hell yes!  We love us some Kettle Brand up in here!  There’s a variety of all kinds, regular chips, baked, and krinkle cut.  Sweet!

Kettle Brand Jalapeno Chips

Kettle Brand Jalapeno Chips

This is the first bag that caught our eye.  We’ve tried some other “jalapeno” flavored chips in the past with each experience falling flat and not even being close to what we were expecting.  I was curious to taste Kettle’s take on the jalapeno chip.

I have to say that we were amazed with these chips.  They were everything we hoped they would be.

They are cooked perfectly so that there is a nice crunch and a very lovely texture.  However, the flavor is just beyond anything we’ve ever experienced!  They are so flavorful with a spicy kick that hits you at the end.  You can see little flecks of green jalapeno all over the chips.

It almost reminds me of a sour cream and onion chip with a spicy twist.  There is  definite onion and garlic notes but the jalapeno stands out.  The spiciness builds up after eating a few chips and that’s when you start reaching for a little drink.

And yes, we have found that beer goes very well with these chips.  They are great as part of a meal, like a side to a sandwich or some soup.  But both of us prefer to munch on these babies all by themselves while we’re watching a movie or a Pens game.

What’s that, you say?  You haven’t seen these in stores yet?

Oh yes, I know.  OHC HQ is getting a sneak peek at Kettle’s newest chip flavor.

Oh snap!

I realize how jealous you are right now. :D

That’s right, according to my inside sources (that’d be Janet) this newest flavor should be shipping out to stores very soon.  The smaller snack bags have already started shipping out.  The larger bags will arrive just in time for summer grilling season and what perfect timing!

Want to try them out?  Well lucky for you I still have some Kettle Brand coupons to pass out which get you a FREE Kettle Brand product. Oh yeah!

Rules for the Giveaway:

Just leave me a comment on this post.  Tossing in your favorite Kettle Brand flavor would make for a lovely discussion. ;)
