Hershey's KISSES

I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like Hershey's KISSES. Even my husband who does not like sweets, likes them. As a part of my Influenster J'Adore VoxBox I was able to share these delightful treats with my whole family. Needless to say, they didn't last long!
I found myself grabbing a handful in the evening, after my son was in bed, and relaxing on the couch with them.  Sometimes I would just chew them.  Sometimes I would let it slowly melt in my mouth.  I even ate them a few times in hiding so I didn't have to share with my son!
I love to make these pretzel treats with them too.  I finally have the best way to melt them!  Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Turn the oven off.  Place the treats in the oven for 10 minutes.  Take them out and gently push one candy coated chocolate into the Hershey KISS.  Let them stand to cool over night or in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I was so happy when I heard back from this company that I would be able to try their throat drops.  The history of them is quite interesting so I'll give you a quick run down!  (If you want the full story go here!)

It started out in 1870 when two brothers were determined to created a throat lozenge to help relieve their own sore throat and their family members.  The company was bought out by the Life Saver's company in 1930 reaching their peak popularity in the 1970's.  After being sold by the Life Saver's company they were bought and resold several times leaving them left in the dust due to cuts made in quality.  Finally, after being revived by the former owner and creator of the Airborne company, the recipe was located and the packaging was redesigned.  In 2011, the new product was launched and Mr. Pine can once again rest peacefully knowing that our throats are soothed!
I have wonderful memories of my father having these cough drops when I was younger.  As soon as I popped one of these in my mouth I just smiled.  They are exactly the way I remember them!  The drops are just as described, "softish".  They are almost the consistancy of a hard gummy bear.  They are slippery and very soothing to the throat.  I love that ingredients are simple as well.  They are listed as: Gum Acacia, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Glycerine, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Colored with Elderberry Concentrate, Sun ower Oil, Caranuba Wax.

You can get your own packages of Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops: 3 for $10.47 right from their site!

K9 Advantix II Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
As you know from some of my previous posts that our family has a dog.  Since spring is coming soon (hopefully!) that means that flea season will soon be upon us! K9 Advantix II is a leading brand of pet medication that helps combat fleas and ticks on dogs. I was offered a 4-month pack of K9 Advantix II to try with Jäger and report back what I thought.

I found this product very easy to use.  The small tubes of product opened easily by inserting the top into the tip and turning it to pop it open.  No scissors necessary.

I simply pulled his hair out of the way to expose his skin and squeezed the liquid out.
Jäger has thick long hair but the product didn't leave any strange residue and I was not worried about my 3 year old touching him afterwards.

The package also came with 4 stickers to place on your calendar so you don't forget to put on the next dose.

You can buy K9 Advantix II from Entirely Pets for as low as $29.99 for smaller dogs!  Jäger is a little over 50lbs so he received the red version for large dogs.

Do you protect your animal from fleas and ticks?  What products do you use?
