One of my fave snacks
Great flavor and not too tough to chew (I have TMJD so I appreciate this.) A really tasty snack with a good nutritional profile! Wish it was a little less expensive but it's not too bad considering the price of most jerky these days. I wouldn't mind if it they made it a little less salty and sweet but I appreciate having a high-protein, shelf-stable snack that's not a sweet protein bar (plus I don't have to share these with my partner, because she's a vegetarian -- more for me!)
Not super sweet or salty, but mildly flavored somewhere in the middle, with a chewy/crunchy bite. I couldn't stop at just one handful. Very tasty little snack!

I love this for so many reasons. First, I love that it smells nice and freshens up my laundry, but without a noxious overwhelming scent (chemical scents tend to aggravate my asthma so this is very important.) Second, I love the dry formula. Liquids get so goopy and messy and I always spill them all over the place -- I love having my tablespoon and my little bag of powder. So tidy, so efficient! Finally, it really cleans my clothes without being too harsh. Ever since I moved to LA, where the water is exceedingly hard, my old detergent wasn't cutting it. I felt like my clothes just didn't have that freshness that I was looking for. Well, I think this stuff did the trick! I don't use it for diapers (I am childless) but can attest that it works fabulously on my regular laundry.
Not just for babies!

Due to allergies, I avoid most scented products. Dryer sheets and fabric softeners in general are especially irritating to me. When I lived in a more humid climate this wasn't such a big deal (adding vinegar to my wash seemed to soften well enough) but after moving to SoCal I noticed more and more static, and finally decided to give these dryer cloths a try. I can't compare them to commercial products because I haven't used those in so long, but they certainly keep my clothing from sticking together, and I love the scent -- reminds me a little bit of Burt's Bees milk & honey lotion. I use one sheet for 2-3 loads and it works really well for me, and the fragrance hasn't seemed to irritate my skin or lungs yet. Thumbs up!
really elegant solution for solo tea-drinkers.

For those times when I don't want to make a full pot of tea, I love this little infuser. It allows my loose leaf teas to infuse freely, plus I can drink straight from the cup once I remove the insert with the used tea leaves. I actually prefer to drink from glass mugs anyway (I love being able to see the tea!) so this is a definitely perk. I just hope my clumsiness doesn't kick in so I can keep this infuser for a long, long time -- for now I'm handling it very carefully, handwashing only, and I only stir with wooden implements (I use a chopstick) to avoid clinking on the glass.
Pricey, but delicious, food
Tasty and nutritious stuff. I like to bake it until puffed and serve with a little bit of honey inside the hollow, like sopaipillas. I can't keep it on hand all the time because they're just too expensive, but I love them!
These are hefty chips of coconut, full of yummy coconutty flavor. I have used them in recipes (homemade Mounds-style candies made with honey, raw cocoa, and coconut oil... yum!) but this stuff is also good eaten straight out of the bag.
great black cherry concentrate for mineral water "sodas"
I love to add this concentrate to mineral water. I drop a tablespoon into a tall glass of sparkling mineral water, add a few drops of NuNaturals vanilla stevia, and a wedge of lime -- so refreshing and delicious! It also seems to help with my inflammation if I drink it regularly. I have chronic pain issues and don't drink soda anymore, so I love having a sweet soda-like beverage that has nutritional benefits.
Scent faded away, but good cleaning
The scent didn't really make its way into the clean laundry but just left behind a freshness that's okay by me. It did seem to clean very well and left my clothes softer than my normal liquid detergent.
It's definitely soothing.
I have chronic asthma worsened by my allergies and since I live with 4 cats that I'm allergic to, I live with daily asthma symptoms too. I can't afford and don't want to constantly take an expensive Singulair Rx and I try to minimize use of my emergency inhaler so I'm always searching for natural solutions. This is one of my favorites. I also like the Ivy tablets but I think the liquid is a bit more soothing and quick-acting. I just find that I rest better at night and have less wheezing when I remember to take swigs of this every day. I do wish they would package this in a larger bottle! I go through a single bottle within a week or so.
