UNREAL Candy Review

(COUPONS WERE SENT TO ME BY BZZAGENT FOR PURCHASE OF CANDY TO REVIEW. ALL OPINIONS ARE MINE.)

Who doesn’t love chocolate?

I have met one person in my life who actually did not like the taste of chocolate.

(I always thought he needed his head examined.)

BzzAgent was fab enough to send me a coupon for a free UNREAL candy bar of my choice,

as well as a bunch of BOGO coupons to keep for myself pass along to my besties!

Because I adore Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups,

I went to my nearest CVS and got UNREAL’s version

called “UNREAL77 Peanut Butter Cups UNJUNKED.”

The UNJUNKED brand has:

  • no artificials

  • no hydrogenateds

  • no corn syrups

  • no preservatives

  • no GMOs (Genetically-Modified Organisms)

This particular package has:

  • 3g of fiber

  • 5g of protein

  • 115mg of sodium

  • 12g of fat

  • 11g of sugar

  • 190 calories

They come fresh out of the package,

not in any kind of wrapping.

Though this chocolate was sweet,

I don’t think it was sweet enough.

It tasted a little bitter –

more dark chocolate-y than milk chocolate.

I suppose that’s because all the horrible chemically things

candy makers usually put in chocolate are absent in this brand.

 

The peanut butter on the inside was divine –

very soft and moist, not dry and crumbly like in a Reese’s.

But if you asked me if I’d rather eat healthy chocolate

or a bad-for-you Reese’s…

I’d choose Reese’s because of the difference in the chocolate tastes.

I think I need to try the other types that this brand offers:

  • Chocolate candy shell peanuts (think peanut M&Ms)
  • Chocolate candy shell (M&Ms)
  • Chocolate caramel nougat (think Milky Way)
  • Chocolate caramel peanuts nougat (think Snickers)

 

I think I’ll try Chocolate Caramel Nougat next because I sure do like my Milky Ways.

UNREAL has a limited release right now.

You can currently find the brand at CVS/pharmacy, Walgreens, Staples, Michael’s, Ralph’s, Kroger, Food4Less, Fred Meyer, Rite Aid, Big Y, Wegmans, Tedeschi Food Shops and BJ’s.

Bic Soleil Savvy Review plus Coupon Giveaway

The Bic Soleil (pronounced “soh-lay”) Savvy is the newest razor with refillable cartridges for women from Bic. These are priced at $6.97 at Walmart and $7.99 at CVS (wait for a good sale).

Shaving Tips provided by Bic:

Shave at Night

Shaving removes dead skin cells and the superficial layer of skin. While this process is healthy, it reduces your skin’s defenses for a couple of hours. Shaving at night gives your skin time to recover its strength and suppleness to resist irritation.

Shave Clean Skin

To help prevent infection and bumps, make sure your skin is perfectly clean before you shave. Apply hot water beforehand or shave after showering. Warm humidity increases skin elasticity and softens your hair, making it easier to shave.

Apply Shaving Cream or Gel

Use shaving cream or gel with Aloe Vera when shaving — it’s gentler on your skin than regular soap and can help lift hair. Lather the cream or gel, then leave it on for two minutes prior to shaving. Once your hair is softened, the razor will glide more easily over skin.

Use a Sharp Blade

Change your blades regularly, especially if you have sensitive skin. On sensitive areas like your bikini line and underarms, shaving with a dull blade can result in red spots.

Comes with 4 cartridges

3 blades with Vitamin E strip

Lightweight with rubber grips

After a test armpit shave (no pic of that, gross), I was pleasantly surprised by how close the shave was. The head pivoted nicely as promised.

However, I must point out a little concern.

I previously purchased a razor just like this in August called the Bic Soleil Shimmer, only it had 4 blades. In fact, I am currently using it as my main razor.

Top is Savvy, bottom is Shimmer

Left is Shimmer, right is Savvy

You can see that the only differences are that the Savvy is a tad shorter, has more grip on the sides, and is more translucent. Looking at the Bic website, the Shimmer is no longer listed as one of their promoted products.

As I generally enjoy a 4 blade razor, I will continue using my Shimmer until I am out of cartridges.

Then I will enjoy the Savvy.
