Review :: Jody's Gourmet Popcorn

My family is a popcorn family. Some like chips. Some like pretzels. We like popcorn. And let me tell you I have found the popcorn queen herself in Jody's Gourmet Popcorn. It is *Delicious* with a capital D!
Jody's Gourmet Popcorn is created with only the finest, freshest, quality ingredients including luscious caramel, rich chocolate, savory cheeses, and Virginia peanuts to guarantee the most delicious popcorn flavors. Popcorn flavors are rotated to include Jody’s Seasonal Popcorn Favorites as well as continually adding New and Exciting Flavors. We can provide Custom Color Popcorn to reflect your organization, special event, school colors, or team spirit.
This popcorn is like nothing you have ever tasted. It is so good it has been featured on The Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda & Rachael Ray's Snack of the Day and I can totally see why! It is THAT good! I was lucky enough to try the Flavor Tasting Pack that includes four yummy flavors! It includes a Small Bag of each of the following flavors: Recipe 53 Caramel Corn, Cheesy Jalapeno, Double Cheddar & Kettle Corn.

The Recipe 53 Caramel Corn is like out of this world delicious! Strange name for a popcorn flavor but it is the one that started it all! 52 times just wasn't enough but then... a breakthrough! With precision and quality ingredients, and a lot of patience Jody`s husband (a doctor and scientist) developed what is now known around the world as Recipe 53 Caramel Corn! An euphoric snacking experience in every bag! The perfect taste of Caramel and Popcorn sure to have you savoring every last kernel! It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty! Needless to say - it did not last long!

I also adored the Kettle Corn. It had the perfect amount of salt with tons of sweet flavor. But really, I am pretty confident that you would not go wrong with any flavor. If you are looking for an extra special treat for yourself or very special gift - I would recommend Jody's Gourmet Popcorn! They have fun gift options for all kinds of occasions.

If you are buying for yourself - go for the tub. Trust me you will regret it if you don't buy enough. No matter who you are buying for ... keep reading for some fantastic news!

Connect: You can find Jody's Gourmet Popcorn on their website! You can also keep up with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Buy It: You can get yourself some of the best popcorn I have ever tasted via their Online Store. Jody's Gourmet Popcorn is offering my readers a fantastic deal! You can get 15% off your order by using the code "umbrella". Sweet! Literally. (And salty.) Enjoy! :D

Review :: Frigidaire Accessories

Most people have heard of Frigidaire. They are known for their reliable Kitchen and Home Appliances. But did you know that you can also rely of Frigidaire to bring you a fantastic selection of Accessories? I was able to try Frigidaire Accessories and select some to try. Here is what I chose.

We're bringing the old world tradition of stone baking right into your kitchen. The Frigidaire bakestone provides even heat distribution allowing you and your family to enjoy golden bread, perfect pizza, and delectable cookies. Our handy serving utensil makes moving hot items from the bakestone to the serving platter a snap! And, as an added feature, our bakestone also comes with its own two-handled carrier which simplifies lifting and carrying, as well as ensures safe handling from the oven to the counter to the table.
My Thoughts :: I was so impressed with the quality of this bakestone. It is very heavy! It is large in size and plenty big enough for a pizza or at least one dozen cookies. The carrier makes it very easy to lift and carry. I love that this product allows for even heat distribution. I will be using this all of the time!

Versa Shelf :: $4.13
Looking to add more space to your fridge? Want to keep your refrigerator shelves clean and organized? Then use our Versa Shelf refrigerator organizer to keep things neat, tidy, and of course, cool.
Able to store 2-liter bottles of soda, cans of a chilled beverage, or a bottle of your favorite wine, the Versa Shelf refrigerator organizer installs easily into just about any refrigerator so that you get the extra space you need to make the most of your shelving. Just hook the Versa Shelf refrigerator rack onto your existing refrigerator shelf and that's it. It removes easy for quick cleaning and it installs in a snap so that you can get the additional fridge space you need without hassle or frustration.

Store more and stay cool when it comes to keeping your refrigerator organized by using the Versa Shelf refrigerator organizer today.
My Thoughts :: The Versa Shelf is something that I did not know I needed until I had one. Now I wonder how I got along without one all this time. The one that I received was clear which worked out great for me. It installed in seconds. It perfectly holds a two-liter bottle without taking up any additional space. The Versa Shelf is designed to hang in a space that I never used in the first place. I love this shelf!

Keep your dishwasher clean and smelling fresh with Glisten Dishwasher Cleaner. Glisten cleans and deodorizes front-loading laundry machines, too! Cleans the inside of your dishwasher without scrubbing. Powers through soap scum, food stains, and discoloration caused by iron and other water impurities.

For use with most major manufacturer's appliances. A little Glisten in your front-loading washing machine will remove odors from the tub. Place in laundry to whiten and brighten clothes! Removes mineral and rust stains from bathroom porcelain. 4 oz package.
My Thoughts :: I have been having a big problem with my dishwasher. After I use it - my dishes still have bits of food stuck on them. It is driving me crazy. Washing your dishes more than once is no fun. I am so hoping that Glisten will do the trick. After one use I noticed less of the food particles than before I used it. My dishwasher itself was nice and clean. I am going to use it again and see if it doesn't take care of the problem completely!

Connect: You can find Frigidaire Accessories on their website! I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices and variety of the products available!

Seeking Sponsors For Upcoming Giveaway Events

I am participating in several giveaway events in the next few months and I am looking for sponsors. I would love to showcase your business during one of my upcoming events!

How it Works
Blog Giveaway Events are an excellent way for businesses to get their product noticed! I will start by writing your very own "Sponsor Spotlight" post where I will be reviewing your product. I will post an exclusive feature on this blog with links to your website and/or social networking sites to increase traffic and search engine optimization. I do not charge any fee for this service at this time. I will also place your ad in my sidebar for two weeks at no charge. This is your chance to gain exposure from my loyal readers!

Next comes the giveaway. Blog Giveaway Events are very largely promoted by all of the participating blogs in the event. This could be anywhere from 50 - 150 participating blogs. All of the blogs have giveaways that link together and readers enter the giveaway and then proceed to the next one on the list. Every event I have participated in has been extremely successful.

You will be able to add your social media, newsletters, etc. to the entry list. That means entrants will follow you on Twitter. like you on Facebook, visit your shop, etc. as part of entering the giveaway for your prize.

I will set aside time to promote the giveaway once it is posted. As do all of the other bloggers that are participating. I promote through social networks (Twitter, Facebook) and a newsletter to subscribers. I will do daily Facebook and Twitter "sponsor shout outs" leading up to the event. I will also post links to the giveaway on other blogs where appropriate.
