My Reviews

Won't buy again

Posted by LantauMama on Apr 09, 2013

Maybe it is the non-airtight bags, but I have had bad luck with these dates - very dry, stringy and some have what I think is mold. No other dates (from other brands) I have had are like these. As a result, I no longer buy these, and buy dates locally instead.

Excellent carob

Posted by LantauMama on Sep 09, 2013

iHerb doesn't have any raw carob powder, so I get this one instead. It is really excellent. I am sensitive to caffeine, so this is a great alternative for homemade 'chocolate' I make a lovely carob bar using this, and use it in smoothies and other recipes. Be aware carob is NOT a chocolate replacement - it is a different taste, a bit sweeter and just different. If you expect it to be like chocolate it will not be. Homemade carob bar - almond butter, coconut oil, coconut butter, carob powder, coconut flakes, chia seeds, hemp seeds, a bit of pink himalayan salt and anything else you want to add - yummmmm

Great for travel

Posted by LantauMama on Jun 29, 2013

My morning smoothie usually has coconut water kefir or coconut water. When I travel, I bring my powders, chia seeds, and blender ball bottle to make my smoothies on the go. This becomes one of my critical ingredients to give it that nice coconut water taste. What I do is: 1. make up a zip lock baggie for each day I am away, and premix everything for one smoothie, then 2. dump it in my blender ball bottle and add water and 3. shake and enjoy! Without this, they are really too watery and not as tasty.

Nice white miso

Posted by LantauMama on Jun 11, 2013

I live in HK, we have loads of Asian foods, and Japanese foods in the super markets - but a lot are very processed or have extra ingredients that I don't care for. This is a great Shiro Miso (white miso) that we use not just for soup but for making some vegan dishes too.

Real homemade chocolate

Posted by LantauMama on Jun 11, 2013

Okay, usually I am lazy and make 'chocolate' by using coconut oil and raw cacao powder. BUT, when I really want to do it right, I use this stuff - and wowowow.

Rich and Dark

Posted by LantauMama on Jul 12, 2014

I really like Earth Circle Organics, and usually use their Bali Cacao Powder. Once they introduced the Ecuadorian, I tried it and now use both depending on what I am making - it has a very different, richer, 'darker chocolate' taste than the Balinese cacao. When I put this in raw chocolate it produces a dark balanced flavor.

Great for Field Work

Posted by LantauMama on Jun 11, 2013

I work for an NGO, and our scientists are in the field studying wild animals - they cannot wear anything scented, so I bought them this (and the conditioner). Highly recommended for anyone that cannot have any fragrance for medical, personal or professional reasons.

Very relaxing!

Posted by LantauMama on Jun 11, 2013

A cup of this at night, and I really do get sleepy and sleep well. I usually actually get about 2-3 cups out of one tea bag and start sipping an hour or two before I want to sleep. Sleepytime never did this for me, but Bedtime hits the spot and relaxes me.

Easy to spray and use small amounts

Posted by LantauMama on Jun 10, 2013

Tastes great, and super convenient - we use this and my husband comments 'there is no wasted sauce in the bottom of my bowl' We can also limit the kids to 'two squirts' for their dumplings. Really really convenient dispenser - we bought one and refill it from the larger container.

Fine crystals

Posted by LantauMama on Jun 12, 2013

I love that these are 'fine' and not course - makes it much easier to use without grinding first!

Works, Smells Great, Safe. Order a lot, bottles are small.

Posted by LantauMama on Sep 03, 2013

It happened, the dreaded lice. My kids age 6 and 7 picked them up at summer camp. Luckily it was not too many, actually we only ever saw one lice, but we found lots of nits in their hair. We use tea tree oil conditioner, but this still happened... ugh ugh ugh ugh gross gross gross gross and more laundry than I ever imagined (so much I had to bring some to the laundromat as I would have killed my machine) This stuff smells great, is really soft, and actually works. BUT the containers are pretty small, so you need to order a lot. My understanding is you need to treat the whole house for lice, as it is likely you all have it. So you need enough for everyone in your household. My son has a crewcut very short hair. My daughter has a bob (hair cut just at her shoulders). I have curly hair just below my shoulders My husband has short hair cut. It took two full bottles to do the four of us. Also, the box only comes with one shower cap, so be sure you have extra shower caps at home - you need a total of two for everyone. So my suggestion is, order enough bottles to keep around to use instantly if needed - I am ordering more to be sure we have them on hand ASAP if needed. Waaaaaay better than the chemical option - highly recommended!!
