The holidays are around the corner! One of the things I love the most about the holidays is the delicious treats. I don't bake much, except for making fudge (the only thing I can actually make that turns out perfectly.) I always find myself craving brittle, and just praying somebody will make me some! (I cannot ever get that recipe to turn out!)
If nobody makes me homemade brittle this holiday season, it doesn't matter, because I have discovered the most delicious brittle I have ever tasted! It is called Softer than Brittle.
Softer Than Brittle is a unique, soft and flaky gourmet nut brittle hand-crafted from a 60-year-old family recipe. This “better-for-you-brittle” contains no preservatives, cholesterol, dairy, or hydrogenated oil and is even vegan. Not only is Softer Than Brittle an incredibly delicious and flakey nut brittle, it also features a clean label with just 6 or 7 basic ingredients. It is available in 4 varieties: Peanut, Cashew, Pecan and Almond.
I received samples of each flavor to review. I promptly opened the almond and the cashew. I was taken away from the first bite of buttery, sweet, rich flavor that was accented by the delicious nuts. I was utterly in love with the heavenly taste and soft texture of each bite.
I never like to hog a treat as delectable as Soften than Brittle for myself, and so I gave one to my sweet mother (she loves pecans) and sent the peanut flavor to my daughter, Myelie, who lives in Utah. Both of these precious ladies agreed that this was the best brittle that they have ever tasted in their entire lives! My mother, as well as my daughter admitted to eating the entire bag on their own without sharing, just like I did with my two bags. Well, technically, I did share with those two, but I did not share the bags of Softer than Brittle that I was eating at home.
Softer Than Brittle would be a great addition to a snack mix or as a topping for brownies. There are many ways you can use Softer Than Brittle in your baking, such as breaking them into pieces and adding them to your favorite cookie recipe! I prefer to just eat them as they are, right out of the bag!
I also plan to purchase a few bags as gifts and for stocking stuffers this year. I can imagine they would be very well received as gifts for my son to bring to his teachers, too!
Enter to win: One winner will receive four packages of Softer than Brittle gourmet snacks; one of each flavor: Peanut, Cashew, Pecan and Almond. (Retail value: $22)

Let's face it. Dogs LOVE treats. And dogs DESERVE treats. After all, they love us unconditionally. As any pet parents know, it is important for your four-legged family member to have healthy treats!

The Hartz Mountain Corporation introduces Delectables, the first lickable stew treat for dogs, available at Walmart, Amazon.com and select retailers around the country. “Delectables Stew Lickable Treats for dogs represents a true innovation in the canine treat category,” says Susan Burris, Brand Manager, Dog Treats, Hartz Mountain Corp. “Perfect for small dogs, Delectables Stew is a delicious and lickable wet dog treat that provides a new occasion for treating and healthy snacking and is ideal for dog parents who love to pamper their pets.”

Look at this cute video of little 'Ripley' enjoying his lickable stew treat:
My black lab, Banner isn't a little dog, by any means, but he still adores his Delectables. Banner's favorite way to eat his lickable stew, is when I pour it as a delicious topping on his dry dog food. It is like the icing on the cake for him!

CariFree Xyli-Tots Lollies are sugar-free lollipops that taste no different than the regular sugary ones. What I mean is, you CANNOT even tell that they are sugar-free! They come in come in five fun flavors, including cherry chuckles, citrus smile, grape giggles, lime laughs, and raspberry riddles.
How perfect to pass out to the trick-or-treaters coming to your door at Halloween!
These delightful treats are made with Xylitol, which is a sweetner that actually fights cavities with .5g of xylitol per Lollie. I honestly think that Xylitol tastes as great as sugar, but is not as sticky and certainly much healthier for our children's teeth.
I can't believe that there is a candy this yummy for kids (as well as adults who will love them just as much) that is so good for our teeth!
I wish CariFree Xyli-Tots Lollies were around when I was a kid, and perhaps I would have far less cavities in my own teeth!
This is an absolutely perfect treat for my four year old son, Braxton, who LOVES these lollies. I am going to have to stock up! (Braxton had quite a bit of tooth decay about a year and a half ago.) I am hoping that will no longer happen, now that we have discovered these awesome new treats!
From their website:
CariFree Xyli-Tots Lollies are great for:
- An anti-cavity reward for kids of all ages
- Making cavity prevention fun
- Reducing cavity causing bacteria in a way your kids will look forward to!
Purchase them here!
Disclosure: I was sent a bag of CariFree Xyli-Tots Lollies to try and keep. This was my honest opinion of the product. Thank you!
