Vitacost Review and a Giveaway

Vitacost provided me these fabulous products in exchange for a review. All opinions are, as always, my own.

A couple of weeks ago, I received these products, and I am happy to report that Nugget did not get to the box this time, so everything survived intact! Of course, now that we know what a little booger she is, we put he box up high immediately upon its arrival, so she had no chance to "help" is open it!


The hubs and the teenie loved these bananas! The hubs said the consistency reminded him of those freeze dried ice creams you get in Washington DC, lol. They did not last long, especially after they used them to make Elvis S'mores. Poor things never stood a chance. They have asked me to buy them, so that they can make more S'Mores! I guess they were a hit!


These gummies amazed me. They are free of practically any allergy related food: gluten, eggs, milk, peanuts, shellfish, eggs, and fish. They are tasty and easy to chew.


Ahhhh, Cholesterol support. A couple of months ago I had routine blood work done, and the nurse said my cholesterol was borderline high. I did a little research, and I am about 20 below what is considered high for my age. BUT. It doesn't hurt to hedge your bets, right? This bottle was double safety sealed, which I love. These are made for people already in a healthy range, like me, to help maintain that healthy range. You take 2 of them twice a day. The size isn't bad, and they are gel caps, so they are easy to swallow. I have to admit, I am a morning vitamin kinda girl, so I often forget that second dose, but every little bit helps, right?

Pretty pink salt! This has been used only once, on the rim of a margarita glass. It was sooooo pretty, and being the fabulous blogger I am I totally forgot to snap a photo!

You can't beat Vitacost when it comes to healthy eating and supplementing! I have never had a bad experience with them, and I love to be able to say that! To show you how fabulous the are, they have given me a $25 gift certificate to pass along to one of my readers! The winner will be announced on June 13th!
