Moo Chocolate Bars Review and Giveaway










Moo Chocolates are Organic Chocolate Bars your whole family can enjoy!   Moo Chocolate's mission is to make the best quality, delicious, wholesome organic chocolates.  Inspired by the playful cows they love, and made with delicious grains and cereals, we know you and your kids will enjoy these chocolates as much as we do! 



The story behind the creation of moo chocolates is they always tried to feed their kids only “real” food. They were allowed "treats" in moderation, but it became a kind of a joke in their family to try to pronounce unreadable ingredients that were supposed to be food.So that’s why they decided to make delicious organic whole milk chocolate bars filled with grains, cereals and real food!


They offer 4 different flavors, each represented by a different cow..

Graham Cracker (Graham the cow)  has all-natural bits of graham cracker bursting with real cinnamon, molasses and honey. coated with graham cracker pieces in rich, creamy milk chocolate. Our Swiss milk chocolate is always made from 100% organic whole milk.  
Rice Crisps (Hunter the cow) has creamy whole milk chocolate followed by the crunch of airy, crisped brown rice. The chocolate is 34% cacao and made with organic, whole milk to create the rich, creamy texture MOO is known for.
Granola (Clementine the cow) has rolled oats, Vermont maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon in an all-natural granola cluster that are good enough to eat alone. But, they believe that everything is MOOre delicious with chocolate! So, they surrounded the granola in a rich, organic milk chocolate for the perfect blend of creamy and crunchy.
Corn Flakes  (Sunny the cow) starts with organic corn flour and a touch of sea salt to create a scrumptious corn flake. Instead of a bowl and milk, their corn flakes are drowned in creamy milk chocolate


So...the big question...are these any good?  My girls love chocolate and candy, so I couldn't wait for them to try these.  They sent us two flavors to try...Milk Chocolate with Rice Crisps and Milk Chocolate with Graham Cracker. My girls loved them.  The chocolate has a very creamy texture to it and the graham cracker and rice crisps that are mixed in is just the right amount..so that you can savor the sweet creamy chocolate goodness.

Char Crust Review and Giveaway

Summer time is approaching and that means time for grilling. Whatever your favorite meal to prepare on the grill, you always need a good rub or marinade. That is where  Char Crust Dry Rub comes in.  They have something for everyone. Plus, you don't even have to wait to use it on the grill, you can bake or broil with it.

Here is a little background on Char Crust. It all started in 1957, at the legendary Chicago steakhouse, Al Farber's. Thick prime steaks with sizzling charred crusts, bursting with juicy flavor, were the signature of the restaurant. When diners would literally beg to take their seasonings home, they knew they had a winner! That time and those flavors are captured in their two original dry rubs: Original Hickory Grilled (originally called just Char Crust®) and Roto Roast.

Char Crust has 9 different products to try for any meats, fish or veggies! Those flavors are: Original Hickory Grilled, Roasted Garlic Peppercorn, All American BBQ, Ginger Teriyaki, Smoky Spicy Southwest, Amazin' Cajun, Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic, Hickory Molasses and Roto Roast.

Check out this recipe they have on their website for Pan-Seared Tilapia
Tilapia fillets -- about 6 oz per person
Char Crust® Amazin' Cajun Dry Rub Seasoning -- about 1/2 Tbsp per fillet
A little oil, canola is good
A little butter (optional), at room temperature
We actually prefer this recipe with catfish, but tilapia seems to have more fans.

Heat a cast iron pan on the stove until very hot. Season one side of the fish with Char Crust® Amazin' Cajun Dry Rub Seasoning, generously covering the surface. Drizzle a little oil all over the seasonings, using your fingers to rub in and distribute evenly. Seasonings will look moist and darken a bit. Place the fish, seasoned side down, into the pan. It should sizzle immediately, and you may get some smoke. Cook a few minutes until just cooked through. Transfer to plate with seasoned side up and place pat of butter on top.
Char Crust was kind enough to send me the samples to try. We decided to first try the All American BBQ on Chicken. Take a look at how the spices look in the package, (see picture below).  It tasted so good and was so easy to use.  Just cover the meat, use a little oil to keep the spices from burning and cook! It was bursting with flavor and left the chicken so moist on the inside.



 They are so simple to use, and when you are short on time, who doesn't love convenience and simplicity. Plus, they taste so good. All Char Crust products are made from natural ingredients that are simple, recognizable and easy to pronounce.  There are no weird chemicals or synthetic stuff.  You can buy the products direct from the company, or you can find them in select stores..



Char Crust is giving one lucky reader of Between the Lines the opportunity to win a set of 4 dry rub products (see Picture above) Check out Char Crust on Facebook and like them.

Mandatory Entry: Leave us a comment on which product you would most like to try.  Remember to leave your email address so that we can contact you if you are the winner.

Learning Resources Review and Giveaway


Do your kids love learning as much as mine?  Do you have trouble finding toys and games that are educational, yet fun at the same time?   Learning resources "is a leading manufacturer of innovative, hands-on educational materials for classrooms and learning toys for the home. For more than 25 years, the company has been a trusted source for educators and parents for quality, award-winning educational products."  Just visit their easy to navigate website and you will be amazed at how many wonderful products that your child would be interested in and benefit from.
 For 2012, Learning Resources has released a huge variety of new educational toys.  Amongst them is the Primary Science Mix and Measure Set.  This set includes "chunky, colorful tools are contoured for little hands".  Amongst the tools are 3 self-standing spoons, 6 unique cup designs help children visualize quantities, a bowl with lid, and a scale.  While my girls would be just happy as can be measuring and pouring water for hours, I love that the kit comes with Activity Cards to guide children and their parents on various fun "experiments".


My girls, ages 5 and 7, were both instantly engaged with the set.  My five year old loves that she can now make her own bubble solution.  Like most kids, she manages to spill her fair share of store bought bubble solution and she is now excited that she can refill her bottles on her own.  My seven year old loves that she can now create her own slime and clay.  By creating the clay and leaving it white, she also gets the chance to paint her project when it dries.  This is a wonderful set for elementary kids and I would recommend it as a mother and a teacher.  My girls are learning fractions without even knowing it.

Would you like your own Primary Science Mix and Measure Set?  Simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below for a chance to win!

Arnicare Gel Review and Giveaway


About Arnicare Gel:

    Brought to you by Boiron, world leader in homeopathic medicines, Arnicare Gel, made from Arnica montana, works naturally to ease muscle pain and stiffness due to minor injuries and overexertion. It also works to reduce swelling and discoloration of bruises. Arnica, a mountain plant from the daisy family, has been commonly used for centuries as a natural pain reliever and is recommended today by doctors, plastic surgeons and pharmacists—and used by professional athletes—worldwide.

My Thoughts:

    As most of you know, I suffer from chronic pain.  What you may not know is that I am not a big fan of pumping my body full of medicine.  When I was asked to review Arnicare Gel, I was very interested to see if it would be able to touch the pain that only strong narcotics had been able to touch in the past.  Seeing that it was an all-natural homeopathic remedy, I decided to give it a shot. "With Arnicare, there’s no risk of overdose, no contraindications, no drug interactions, and no side effects when used as directed. This unscented homeopathic gel is quickly absorbed by the skin, it’s non-greasy and paraben-free, and it does not contain methyl salicylate or camphor—common ingredients found in many pain relief creams which can be toxic in large doses. These benefits make Arnicare Gel safe for the whole family."  I was extremely surprised at the relief I felt after using it on my knees.  It felt a little warm immediately after applying the gel and within ten minutes I felt both knees relax.  It is definitely something that I will keeping around the house.  I recommend trying this product on your everyday aches and pains, as well as those painful bumps and bruises.

One reader of Between the Lines will win their very own bottle to try it out.  For those of you who are ready to try it out now,  Arnicare Gel can be purchased at Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid and Whole Foods, as well as independent pharmacies and health food stores for an SRP of $9.99.  Arnicare is also available in several other forms, including cream, ointment, and oral pellets and tablets. Don't forget to visit their website to snag your $1 off coupon before heading to the store.

Includes 2 of Each Flavor:

· Belgian Chocolate Chunk
· White Chocolate Macadamia Blonde
· Butterscotch Blonde
· Cheesecake
· Peanut Butter
· Fudge Walnut

 I honestly can say that I genuinely surprised at how moist and delicious these brownies were.  I received one of each variety and shared it with my family.  These brownies were huge portions.
