MorningStar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs for breakfast, lunch or snack

mmmmmmmmm

Photobucket

WOAH!!!

Where is this review going? Get your mind out of the gutter please.

Yes, I decided after much debate to use the photo above.

I took the photo.

It's representative of the product.

The fact that it *may* or may not make you think of other things is completely out of my control.

But if it entices you to buy MorningStar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs then I don't think anyone's going to have a problem with me/it/this post.

Also, you should totally buy them.

Why buy MorningStar veggie corn dogs?

Taste - these were deelish! I wouldn't say they tasted like hot dogs cause they aren't hot gos. They are also not greasy and heavy like 'real' hot dogs. They just tasted good and we ate them up! Maybe lighter, lower salt too. I had mine with honey mustard sauce. The Twofer liked ketchup. What will you use?

Convenience - pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and you have a quick and easy breakfast! They store nicely in the freezer too.

Snackability - I am always looking for new after-school snack ideas. The Twofer come home from school famished and could eat and eat right up until and through dinner if I let them! I need snacks that keep them focused on homework but don't ruin their appetite. These were perfect!

Also, at just 150 calories with 2.5 grams of fat, they are definitely better for you than real corn dogs. Those vegetarians may be onto something.

Janine

Disclosure: I revceived a box of MorningStar veggie corn dogs at no cost for the purpose of this review. They really tasted good. All opinions expressed here are my own as was the decision to use that fab photo (you know you love it). This post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published - duh - or I would have probably had a more professional photo!

Applegate Means Yummy Antibiotic-free, MSG-free Meat

Photobucket

Remember last summer when I bought 1/10th of an organic, grass fed cow? My family is definitely a family of meat eaters and I like to buy meat that has no additives, no antibiotics, and no MSG.

But I can't fit any more meat in my freezer!

Good thing Applegate Farms approached me to review their deli meats and breakfast sausages because not only do the fit the bill, but I can buy them in much smaller quantities.

Here is what we sampled:

Applegate Roasted Chicken Breast
All-Pork Sliced Pepperoni
Classic Pork Breakfast Sausage
Savory Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Photobucket

All of these contain

  • No antibiotics
  • No added nitrates or nitrites
  • No MSG
  • No artificial colors or flavors


Plus they are gluten-free and the sausages are ready-to-heat.

Here is what the family thought:

Photobucket

The deli meats are a nice size...not too thick and not too thin. They were less salty thatn other brands of lunchmeat, with great flavor and resealable packaging. I notices the deli meats are available at Trader Joe's too which is convenient and they are priced competitively. The chicken breast was wonderful in sandwiches and salads while the pepperoni was delicious wrapped around a slice of provolone cheese and also homemade pizza.

The breakfast sausages gave the Twofer the big smiles though. I never buy sausage so these were a real treat and delicious. Plus, I can feel good about serving them because Applegate uses humane farming practices and feed the animals a 100% vegetarian diet without antibiotics.

Applegate Farms believes the flavor starts on the farm and I have to say I believe it now too! Twofer Thumbs Up for Applegate deli meats and breakfast sausages.

_________________________

I'm a New Englander so I love Dunkin Donuts. I crave Dunkin Donuts. I need Dunkin Donuts.

But even I didn't know all that Dunkin offers!

Now, I do and I'm going to share it with you and then give you a chance to win a $25 gift card so you can try it all!

Dunkin Donuts has eggs all day long

Recently I was part of a blogger meet up with Dunkin Donuts where I sampled some of the new egg sandwich offerings including the Big & Toasty (Texas Toast, peppered egg, and Canadian bacon, and cheese) which will come out in March.

Photobucket

Plus lighter versions of a hot egg sandwich from the DD SMART menu made with eggwhites and served on a multigrain flatbread that have only 280 calories and 9 grams of fat!

Then I found out that Dunkin serves breakfast all day long!

Love that.

Blueberry gives new meaning to the term 'flavored' coffee

I got to try a whole host of fun coffee flavors including blueberry, coconut and toasted almond in addition to caramel, hazelnut and french vanilla. Besides just coffee, Dunkin Donuts has cappuccino and latte too.


Don't forget the donuts
Of course we also sampled donuts. LOTS of donuts

Photobucket

My favorite was the sour cream donut. It's not necessarily pretty, but it's soft and creamy and soooo good.

Warm up with Jimmy Dean's D-Lights for Breakfasts 

WINNER update 3/8/11: Congratulations to Carol! Thanks everyone for entering.

_______________________________________________

When it's cold out, I definitely prefer a nice warm breakfast. No wonder February is National Hot Breakfast month! I was recently approached to try a sample from the new Jimmy Dean D-Lights products. Here's what I thought and a chance to win your own!

Egg and Cheese Snob

I'm a connoisseur of sorts when it comes to egg and cheese sandwiches for breakfast. I like my eggs cooked hard (no runny stuff), the cheese just enough and melted but not dripping, and the bread to be a crunchy hard roll (or kaiser roll as some may call it). So I was pleasantly surprised as how much I enjoyed a microwaveable egg & cheese sandwich!

Photobucket

D-Lights are Easy to Cook and Eat

I purchased two types of Jimmy Dean D-Light breakfast sandwiches and both were very good.
The Canadian Bacon on a Honey Wheat English muffin was very tasty. The egg whites were fluffy, the bacon didn't get rubbery, and the cheese melted perfectly. The Turkey Sausage Muffin was great too with a fluffy egg and tasty sausage that wasn't at all greasy.

I popped them in the microwave had enjoyed a delicious breakfast with 1/3 fewer calories than a regular one. Even The Twofer enjoyed them so this is going to be a nice breakfast option on those days I'm rushing to get out the door.

WIN Three FREE Jimmy Dean D-Lights

I've got 3 coupons for one lucky TwoferMom reader to sample 3 different Jimmy Dean D-Light hot breakfasts!

Here's how to enter:

Review: Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's 

I have never eaten a whole package of anything in one sitting - in my life.
Not ice cream.
Not cookies.
Not bon bons to play up the old clichÈ.

Until I discovered these...

 

Photobucket

If you haven't had them, Candy Cane Joe-Joe's from Trader Joes are like
like,
like,

Well I decided to ask my friends how they describe them to someone who has never had them.

Here's how they described Trade Joe's Candycane Joe-Joe's

"Yummy chocolate sandwich cookie with peppermint filling that has a yummy peppermint crunch"


"Thin mints on crack"

"Gone."

And my all-time fave, "The love child of an oreo and a candy cane."

Want to know more about Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's?

Visit Trader Joes online and see if there's a store near you.
Become a fan of Candy Cande Joe-Joe's (of course it has it's own fan page) on Facebook

But I hear they are seasonal and only available during the holidays.  You may want to stock up.

And now you know what to get me for Christmas.

Janine

Disclosure: I bought 2 boxes of Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's with my own money and ate one entire box myself. Well, maybe not the entire thing but pretty darn close. All opinions are my own and I have no connection to Trader Joe's other than another trip planned this week to stock up on whatever is left in the Joe-Joe's isle!
