SexyPop Popcorn Introduces New Bodacious Banana

SexyPop Popcorn introduces Bodacious Banana which is rich in potassium, antioxidants, and real bananas.  It joins the already sexy line of healthy flavors:  Bangin' Cheddar, Lightly Salted, French Butter, Brazilian Coconut and Black Pepper. Each has been shown to have more antioxidants than vegetables, making them good for your skin and anti-aging.

I was given the opportunity to try 4 of their flavors (Bodacious Banana, Lightly Salted, French Butter and Brazilian Coconut).  The banana was really unique and a little confusing to my head LOL  I loved it though and ate the whole bag.  The coconut was a very light flavor (almost like it was popped it coconut oil but not really saturated in coconut flavoring.  VERY GOOD.  The Lightly Salted was a perfect healthy snack that didn't make me super thirsty because of it not being coated in salt.  I think this is the flavor I will continue to buy from now on (or the coconut).  I wasn't super crazy about the French Butter but my son liked it so that became his bag.  I would love to try the Bangin' Cheddar so I will have to look in stores for it.  Cheddar popcorn is my daughters favorite flavor too.

COMBOS Introduces Bigger Party Size Bags

Just in time for summer, COMBOS® introduces new Party Bag which are 15 oz and the perfect size for sharing with friends and family.  Whether you're headed to the beach, hitting the road or just enjoying an outdoor picnic, this new larger size bag is exactly what you need.

COMBOS® Party Bag is available in three popular flavor varieties including:
  • Cheddar Cheese Pretzel
  • Pizzeria Pretzel
  • Cheddar Cheese Cracker
If you have never had COMBOS before, you are missing out !  They are baked snacks which combine two delicious things – bold flavor packed in delectable pretzel and cracker shells.

I was sent a couple bags for review and got the following 2 flavors:  Pizzeria Pretzel and Cheddar Cheese Cracker. 

The pizzeria pretzel flavor has always been my favorite ever since I was little so I was thrilled that this is one of the new larger size bag flavors.  There is just something great about the combination of the pretzel and the pizza flavored filling inside them. 

I had actually never tried the cheddar cheese cracker flavor before but really liked them.  Since they are packed inside a cracker instead of a pretzel they have a slightly different texture.  I really liked how light of a flavor these were. 

If you want to try some of the other flavors which come in slightly smaller bags, they offer the following 7 flavors:
  • Cheddar Cheese Pretzel
  • Pizzeria Pretzel
  • Buffalo Blue Cheese Pretzel
  • Cheddar Cheese Cracker
  • Pepperoni Pizza Cracker
  • Jalapeno Cheddar Tortilla
  • 7 Layer Dip Tortilla (NEW)

COMBOS® Party Bags are available at mass retailers and grocery stores nationwide.  For more information on COMBOS® Baked Snacks, please visit the COMBOS' Facebook page.

Wendy’s Introduces the New Steakhouse Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe

Wendy’s new limited-time Steakhouse Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe is a fresh, never frozen beef hamburger patty seasoned with steakhouse seasoning, cheese and a creamy garlic aioli sauce made with roasted garlic, onion and Dijon mustard. It is then topped with sliced red onion, hand-cut tomato and hand-leafed lettuce.  And for only $1.49, there is no need to break the bank.
Kevin and I were running errands today and decided to run in and try this new burger.  For $1.49 it definitely was a good deal.  I got my burger plain and loved it and Kevin got his the way it comes.  He wasn't totally crazy about the garlic aioli sauce and said to tell people they should ask for it on the side.  Since everyone's tastes are different, many of you may love this sauce.

So if you are looking for a meal that is just the right size and a really great price, this is sure to hit the spot.
