Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurt Review and Giveaway

Did you know that February is National Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month? I didn’t and I am excited to share with you the news that Yoplait has announced its new Yoplait® Lactose Free yogurt. Yoplait  Lactose Free is available in four delicious flavors, Strawberry, Peach, French Vanilla and Cherry. Yoplait Lactose Free contains 50% of the recommended Daily Value of calcium, with vitamins A and D in every cup.

Lactose Free contains no artificial sweeteners and can be used in some of your favorite recipes. I was super excited to try  Cherries With Cherry Vanilla Yogurt. Instead of using Yoplait Light Fat Free cherry vanilla yogurt I used Yoplait Lactose Free Cherry Yogurt. It was the perfect before bedtime snack. I also changed different flavors and fruits.

I took 1/2 cup stemmed and sliced strawberries and put them in the bottom of my dish. I then took Yoplait Lactose Free Strawberry yogurt and spooned it on top of the strawberries and topped it with grated dark chocolate. The combinations are endless! I look forward to using Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurts in many of my other favorite recipes.

I really couldn’t tell a difference in taste between regular Yoplait Yogurt and the Lactose free yogurt. Both are very creamy and still my favorite yogurt brand. I bought all four of the flavors and Cherry was my favorite but the kids are standing firm that their favorite is Strawberry and Peach.

Be one of the first to try new Yoplait Lactose Free. Click here to enjoy a coupon for $0.30 off Yoplait Lactose Free.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

I absolutely love baking especially with the kids! They love getting to help in the kitchen and love being creative. They have the greatest imagination and can see things that we don’t. When our Sprinkles Cupcake Mix came in for us to review they couldn’t wait to get started. I love how I can make the famous “Sprinkles” cupcakes at home. Making the cupcakes were extremely easy and fun. Our cupcakes tasted nothing like traditional “box cake mix.” They tasted 1000 times better and tasted like they were made from scratch. We have made Sprinkles cupcakes our favorite cupcake mix in our house. I use it for all our party cakes that I have to make. The batter is so rich and the perfect consistency for layer cakes as well.

Ideal No Calorie White and Brown Sweetener Review

My mom has tried to get me to switch from regular sugar to Ideal sweetener for awhile now. She said that you couldn’t tell the difference and that I wouldn’t even notice that I wasn’t using regular sugar. When Ideal asked me to review their White and Brown Sweetener,  I jumped at the chance. The kids and I went on the Ideal Website and started looking for recipes we could make. Of course the kids picked chocolate chip cookies. (See Recipe Below). I thought for sure their would be a difference in the amount of Ideal you use compared to sugar but their isn’t. Ideal Sweetener measures cup for cup like sugar.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 c all-purpose our
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 c light, unsalted butter, softened
1 c Ideal®
No Calorie Sweetener
1 c Ideal®
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 c semisweet chocolate chips
Ingredients-US Standard
1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
2. Combine our, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl.
3. Cream together butter, Ideal®
and Ideal®
4. Add vanilla and mix until creamy; add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
5. Gradually beat in our mixture; stir in chocolate chips.
6. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
7. Tap lightly with ngers so that dough does not remain in ball form (so cookies will bake through
and be atter after baking).
8. Bake 8 to 9 minutes until golden around edges.
9. Let rest 2 minutes and remove to cooling racks

The cookies were very moist and you could not tell that they were not made with white and brown sugar. The Kids said that they were the best cookies they ever made. The cookies didn’t flatten out like regular cookies do but instead stayed the shape when we put them on the cookie sheet. Ideal Sweetener is definitely going to be used in our up coming holiday baking this year. It will help cut out some of the calories that we will be consuming between now and New Year’s!

Better Made Snacks Review

Better Made Snack Foods was founded in 1930 by the late Peter Cipriano and the late Cross Moceri. They took great pride in making sure that only the greatest ingredients were used in production. Better Made Chips productions originally was   simple. They used burlap bagged select potatoes that were cooked in the best oil , then weighed and hand packed into crude greaseless bags. While production this way worked when they started over 80 years ago, they have since changed production to meet the needs of their consumers. Better Made Potato Chips still the greatest ingredients, uses all natural resources and are sure not to be touched by human hands from the time the potatoes leave the farm until you open your bag and take your first bite.

Recently we had the opportunity to review Better Made Snacks Sampler Gift Box. Their Sampler Gift Box includes a total of 15 bags of 15 different Better Made Snack flavors! This box was perfect and had something for everyone! 9 of the flavors were 2.5 oz and the other 6 flavors were .875-1.25 oz bags.
9 / 2.5 oz bags of:



Dill Pickle Wavy

No Salt


Sweet BBQ

Red Hot BBQ

Salt & Vinegar

Sour Cream & Onion Waves

Green Onion

6 / .875-1.25 oz bags of:

White Cheddar Popcorn

Cheese Popcorn

Baked Cheese Puffs

Shoe String Sticks

Hot Cheese Crunchy

Of course the kids claimed the popcorn and cheese puffs before they even had the chance. Better Made Snacks offer a great variety of flavors and I would have to say that it was hard for me to choose just one favorite. Every bag of Better Made Snacks was just as fresh as the other. The chips didn’t taste like they sat in oil for a long period of time and didn’t taste like you were biting into oil soaked potatoes. These definitely are Better Made Chips.

Better Made Snacks Supports Our Troops! If you have friends or family or just want to send a care package to any branch of military such as The Army, The Marine Corps, The Navy, The Air Force or Coast Guard, you can order any of Better Made products online and Better Made Snacks will ship them via USPS to all AFOs, APOs & Military Bases.
