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.
These are really shockingly tasty!

I never expected to like these as well as I do -- like other reviewers say, these are best when coated with a slightly acidic dressing. I love using a peanutty Asian sauce that I make with nut butter, tamari, rice vinegar, honey, and other yummy goodness, then toss them with cabbage and other veggies to make a delicious salad. So yummy! Also very tasty when made as a Vietnamese noodle bowl with hot toppings like tofu, grilled chicken, etc. Excellent low-calorie noodle option.
Great little scoop!

Especially great for laundry because it sticks on the side of the washer, but tempted to get one for the kitchen as well. The strong magnets really hold on nicely, too. It's simple and easy to use, and does what it's supposed to do!

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.
Really like this!

Great texture, natural neutral color on me, and smells/tastes nice--can't ask for much more than that. I also buy Burt's Bees lip shimmer but this is a great alternative (and is less expensive too!) Highly recommend if you like a sheer lip color with natural ingredients.

Another reviewer was right -- these do taste a bit like Fritos, but more hearty and harder to chew. In a good way. ;) Love munching on these instead of chips. They tasted really fresh too -- sometimes with snack food like this, the corn or the cooking oil is rancid, but that was not the case with these. Yum!

Good simple sanitizer, and triclosan-free, which I appreciate. Also, the smell isn't too chemical or strong like many sanitizers. The bottle is a great size for my purse!
Really impressed with this stuff.

I love coffee but my body doesn't really appreciate caffeine's after-effects. Jitters, anxiety, edginess, sweating... not to mention the harshness of its acidity on my stomach. I have always been sensitive, so as much as I love it, I can't drink coffee on a daily basis. I've tried some other substitutes including decaf and Teeccino, but they weren't very satisfying to me. Teeccino is pretty decent in the French press, but not something I crave every day like coffee. Dandy Blend is actually quite tasty though! I enjoy stirring it in to frothed milk to make a delicious instant latte. It's nice that it is a powder and therefore easily prepared, too.
Great little freebie!

This is my favorite iherb freebie -- the pen is lightweight, writes smoothly with blue ink, looks decent (the logo isn't cheesy) and of course it is useful, which is the most important thing. I work from home so I always appreciate an extra pen. It's light and small enough to tuck into my zippered clutch/wallet - perfect for endorsing checks on the go, etc. I see they are "not available" right now--I hope that's temporary because I love these little pens. Bring them back, iherb!
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.
Versatile and delicious!

I bought this to use in my breakfast smoothies, and it does work well mixed up in a Nutribullet with some greens, berries, protein powder and nuts, and it also makes great raw candy when mixed with things like coconut, coconut oil and nuts, but I've found that the raw cacao also works well in ordinary baking recipes that call for cocoa powder. For example, I just made a 1960s-era chocolate sheet cake (sometimes called a "Texas sheet cake") and it worked perfectly! I couldn't tell the difference between my cake made with this product and the normal cake I ate growing up. I will definitely keep buying this!
Waste not, want not

I used to dread making anything that called for buttermilk. Don't get me wrong, I love the flavor that real buttermilk imparts (I prefer it to the substitutions with lemon juice or vinegar) but I always felt wasteful when the remainder of the carton didn't get used before spoiling. Saves a TON of money! Now I keep this on hand at all times -- I actually store it in a Weck jar in the fridge -- and I am able to whip up fresh buttermilk whenever I want without any excess left. Love it and HIGHLY recommend to people who love to bake.
