There’s something that is just so awesome about getting fun mail. You know what I mean. Not bills and not notices and not anything that can in any way, shape or form lead to anxiety. Just good, old fashioned fun mail. Back in the day you could order tons and tons of free samples. Remember that? I’d get a single maxi pad and I’d be over the moon. Look! I’d show whoever was around. “I got this OUT OF THE MAILBOX. How cool is that?”
These days since I don’t get fun mail nearly as much as junk mail. This month I was sent a complimentary BabbleBoxx and I. Was. Stoked. Boxes like these are the epitome of fun mail because you never know what you’re going to find inside. So, wanna see what I found inside? Of course you do.
My BabbleBoxx was themed toward food and I’m totally cool with that. I first spied a snack and so not only got to pretend like it was Christmas and dig through my new goodies with my Boshih Carly, we also had a little munch-fest on some Popcorn, Indiana Sweet & Salty Kettlecorn.
Did you know that Popcorn, Indiana is a real place? Seriously. Google Maps up that business.
In my box I got a snack-sized portion of their most popular flavor Kettlecorn. It’s easy to see why this is the number one brand of kettlecorn out there because it’s perfectly sweet and salty at the same time. I must admit, that I am a HUGE fan, now. I also got a coupon where I can try one of their other flavors including Sea Salt, Aged White Cheddar, Movie Theater, Chicago Style Caramel & Cheese and Smoky Queso. ‘Cause what’s better than a little bag of popcorn? A big one!
If you need a reason other than the fact that I told you it’s awesome, Popcorn, Indiana popcorns are a certfied Gluten Free, non-GMO whole grain treat you can snag at stores all over the U.S. and Canada. To buy visit the Popcorn, Indiana website.
The next thing in my box I just had to try myself was the Pumpkin Spice flavored peanut butter by Peanut Butter & Co. Now I’ll be the first to admit I can be kind of a hater on pumpkin spice but I LIKE this. Maybe it’s because it actually has REAL PUMPKIN in there plus the spices, like cinnamon and nutmeg, but I love it and I think somebody got their first ever seasonal flavor perfectly right!
I first smeared some on a piece of gluten free toast, because anybody that MUST eat gluten free knows that a whole lot of gluten free breads have to be toasted to be enjoyed. Oh, did I mention that Pumpkin Spice peanut butter is made exclusively with USAgrown, Non-GMO peanuts contains no cholesterol, no trans-fats, no hydrogenated oils, and is dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free? Buy your own jar here! Ooh, and be sure to print a $1 off coupon before you hit up the store. And then make a Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Cheesecake with the recipe you can find over here. (aren’t I just full of all sorts of handy links?) Yum!
Okay, so the Babbleboxx peeps couldn’t have possibly known it but I LOVE kitchen tools so they might be surprised at just how hard I wigged out when I saw my new Chef’n brussels sprouts and cauliflower prep tools. It’s a super big time love and I have so many things that we have not one, but two wafflemakers stacked on top of an electric kettle that sits next to my food dehydrator that rests on top of indoor grill. And that is to say nothing about all of the tools I have in my pretty, red with white polka dots utensil holder. Yes, these new tools will be in good company here in my kitchen!
We eat a lot of brussels sprouts and, not so much cauliflower, but definitely tons of broccoli around here. And with as busy as Rob and I have been lately anything that takes away some of the hassle and allows us to spend less time prepping and cooking dinner the better. I think what I love most about these gadgets is their simplicity. Snap Brussels sprouts with the Twist’n Sprout by twisting to trip and core. I don’t know about you but I’ve never been a huge fan of the touch stem, anyway, but I love that our sprouts are sure to be cooked more evenly now. Handwash this little guy and you’ll be prepping, roasting and getting your sprouts on quickly for ages!
When I cook cauliflower or broccoli I spend AGES trimming away the stalks because I’m not their biggest fan. Now, Rob just barely cuts any of the stalks away because he’s just not one to mess with prep too often. Considering that he cooks a lot more than me these days the StalkChop is going to make him very, very happy because he can quickly, easily and safely separate the florets from the stalk and I am going to be very happy because I don’t have to carve away what I don’t every time I want to take a bite of veggies.

As a craft blogger and a pet owner I know all about the benefits of easy to use hand wipes so I was stoked to get a package of Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes. These guys clean better than hand sanitizer gels and wipe away the dirt without drying out skin, which as somebody who suffers dry skin anyway, I can get 100% behind. Add in the fact that they are also hypoallergenic, contain aloe and lanolin so that even little hands don’t suffer the dryness.
With 2 crafty nephews who are a lot like me I love that we can tackle dirt and germs (and maybe a little glitter) while still being gentle enough for their skin. I also love the new Wet Lock™ seal technology which is going to help keep these wipes moist until I use the very last one! To get your own package and keep those little hands clean visit just about any store across the U.S. including big box, grocery and drug stores!
