Its Always a Great Time for Ice Cream

Summer may be coming to an end but its never too late to enjoy ice cream.  MAGNUM® Ice Cream, Popsicle®, Breyers®, Good Humor®, Klondike® and new Fruttare® fruit bars have unveiled a diverse line-up of unique frozen treats guaranteed to meet America’s increasing interest in delicious, rewarding snacks.
Klondike brings plenty of nostalgia to anyone’s freezer with 11 varieties including such delicious flavors as Reeses, Heath, Oreo, Mint, Krunch and Dark Chocolate.


Fruttare Fruit and Milk Bars are made with real fruit and creamy milk and are available in Strawberry & Milk, Coconut & Milk, Banana & Milk and Peach & Milk.  Fruttare Fruit and Juice Bars are available in Strawberry, Mango, Lime and Orange varieties.  I picked the Banana & Milk and LOVED it.


MAGNUM, the most luxurious ice cream bar, is a uniquely indulgent treat that is truly as good as gold.  It features silky vanilla bean ice cream swirled with sea salt caramel and dipped in a golden coating made with Belgian milk chocolate.  I decided to pick the Magnum Mini classic because I figured I would get more times of enjoying them since they come 6 to a box instead of only 3.


Good Humor has taken a twist on its classic ice cream bars with the introduction of the new Good Humor Birthday Cake bar, featuring vanilla cake flavored ice cream surrounded by light vanilla ice cream and coated with cake crunch.


I probably don’t need to even tell you how great Breyers ice cream is and with the addition of their Breyers Blasts, you are sure to find a flavor that you will love.  I wish I could have found their latest flavor “Strawberry Shortcake” but since I couldn’t I chose the Breyers Blast Oreo and it was a HUGE hit in my house (I made shakes out of it for all the kids).


And last by certainly not least, Popsicle is delivering yet another unexpected combination with Yosicle Swirlz!, featuring creamy swirls of Chocolate & Vanilla and Strawberry-Red Raspberry and Strawberry-Banana. Popsicle is also partnering with the bright and cheerful Hello Kitty brand to create new Popsicle Hello Kitty Fun Bunch ice pops.

Arabian Nights "The Royal Celebration" in Orlando Florida

"The Royal Celebration" is an all-new Arabian Nights experience -the first complete revision of the show in 14 years. The show features several exciting new acts - along with a few of their greatest hits - woven together through a tale of romantic adventure that will introduce you to a variety of horses and riders from around the world.

I got the opportunity to take my kids to this new show and we all had such a great time.  When you first enter you will be in a preshow area where you will get to snack on things like chips & salsa and pasta salad.  There is also a full bar if you would like a drink and you can even get your face painted by enchanted body art (Kyle picked a Batman mask).   My kids also really liked getting a pressed penny (which is the perfect way to get an inexpensive souvenir).  You will then watch a belly dancer and kids will be invited to learn how to do it themselves.

If you purchased the VIP experience you will get let in early to take a tour of the stables, meet some of the performers and you can even get your picture taken on a horse.  I highly recommend upgrading your ticket so you can do this... it was one of my favorite things of the night.

After the backstage tour, you will head to your seat to experience the show which is a tale of intrigue, magic, and love.  Guests of all ages are invited to witness the magnificent wedding of the beautiful Princess Amirah and the bold Prince Raswan, and the joining of the two most powerful Bedouin kingdoms, the Saglawi and the Ruala. Join us, as the magic of the great Genie and the mysterious Sorcerer take us to the corners of the earth to deliver spectacles of wonder on horseback. See the grace of the splendid Black Stallion. Admire the mystical Unicorns, last of their kind. Watch in awe as the performers for this royal wedding display daring and skill with incredible acrobatics and intricate riding. In all of its majesty, this will truly be a wedding to remember.

Dinner is served during the show and you get your choice of meal (pot roast, chicken marinara, chicken alfredo, chicken tenders and pulled pork).  Dessert is also included and you get your choice of either vanilla cake with raspberry sauce or chocolate cake with mousse filling.

General Admissions for the dinner show starts at $66.99 per guest, taxes and fees included (gratuity not included). General Admissions tickets include unlimited Pepsi products, choice of 5 entrees (dietary needs such as kosher, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc can be accommodated), and pre-show activities for youngsters and an amazing dinner theater experience!

For those interested in upgrading their experience, Arabian Nights’ Royal Celebration has a variety of dinner show packages to choose from: VIP Experience, The Royal Table, Drink Packages, and Sultan Seating.

Reserve your Royal Celebration seats online, or contact the Palace directly (800) 553-6116 to make your reservations to Arabian Nights’ Royal Celebration, today!

Cedar's Product Review and Coupon Giveaway

I am a HUGE fan of hommus so when Cedars Foods said I could do a review of some of their products, I decided I would pick out 5 different flavors to try.  I selected Garlic Lovers, Garden Vegetable, Roasted Red Chili Pepper, Roasted Eggplant and Sundried Tomato & Basil.
My absolute favorite was the Garlic Lovers but I was shocked at how incredible the Garden Vegetable one was as well.  It had a garlic/green pepper taste that was REALLY good.  The Roasted Red Chili Pepper one has a HOT kick to it so if you like spicy, you will really like that one.  And the Sundried Tomato and Basil one was pretty good as well (not sure if I will get it again but I did like it).  Sadly, I wasn't all that impressed with the roasted eggplant and won't be buying that one again.

One of my boy friends favorite Cedar's products was the chickpea salad and he said he will be getting that more often from now on.

And I just love getting the little snack sized hummus and chips for the kids lunchboxes!!!


Make sure you keep your eyes out for deals at Whole Foods because they put the hommus on BOGO sales all the time !!!
