Dulces Locos – Its like pocket horchata

If you’re like me, you need horchata more than you’re able to have it. The rare time you see the agua frescas sign or the percolating white box of the good stuff at the counter of any good Mexican food place, is like pure excitement.. When I saw these horchata flavored candies I was initially pretty skeptical, I wasn’t sure if it was like a caramel or licorice consistency.. or if the flavor would be any good.

They were spot on horchata, like I used to get in my fav Santa Ana taqueria, and chewy like Australian licorice. Going back to Bed Bath & Beyond to stock up, because I doubt I will ever be lucky enough to run across these again.

La Croix – Youre drinking it wrong…

You’ve probably heard or at least seen La Croix sparkling water, it’s the one with all the crazy flavors and colorful cans, but if you are a La Croix addict, like I have recently become, then you are probably drinking them cold right out of the fridge. I’m here to tell you – You’re doing it wrong! Let the can rest 15 minutes from the fridge and I guarantee you will enjoy the flavor much more. Enjoy my fellow La Croix addicts

La Croix – let it rest!

Cado – Avocado Frozen Dessert

And you thought avocado was only for guacamole? It actually makes an awesome dessert! I’ve been dairy free for the last month while breastfeeding my daughter who seems to be sensitive to milk.. Milk is incredibly difficult to cut out of your diet especially if you are addicted to dessert like I am. So thankfully I came across this tasty little pint while shopping last week at Wegmans. It’s creamy, and tastes nothing like avocado. It has a bit harder consistency than ice cream but after a short thaw its close enough. 

Kelloggs Nourish Coconut Cranberry Almond

I’m really loving this cereal right now – it’s one of those great blends of slightly sweet crunchy wholesome cereals that’s perfect with a bit of almond milk. It’s got flakes, grains, almond slivers and coconut flakes along with these little crunchy pieces that sort of remind me of the fiber one bits.. hits the spit especially when I need something sweet but not overly so for my evening snack.

May Designs – Custom Paper Goods

Loving my custom notebooks from May designs. Perfect for anyone who likes their notes to be surrounded by beautiful prints textures and their name or monogram. It makes work feel so much more luxurious.. You can also customize how the inside is printed: whether it’s lined pages, blank, or even with a handy agenda.. perfection.

Jeni’s Ice Cream – Sweet Cream Biscuits and Peach Jam

First off the ice cream in this is a buttermilk ice cream and it’s ridiculous. delicious . The consistency of the ice cream with the sweet cream biscuits is sort of grainy, like the biscuits are chopped up and blended in little bits throughout (rather than getting big chunks) and the peach jam is nice and sweet and adds a nice touch to the biscuits. Legit. A bit of a splurge but worth the $12 for a pint for when you want to indulge a bit.
