Review: Tastykake® Kandy Bar Kakes

I received a sample of the new TastyKake Kandy Bar Kakes from Influenster for testing purposes in the Spring VoxBox, but I could not eat it because I have to be gluten free.  My husband, however, took one for the team and volunteered to eat said Kandy Bar Kake.  He's such a trooper.

Being from the Philadelphia area, I am very aware of TastyKake.  And if you haven't tried anything by TastyKake before, they do have a ton of very tasty treats (including some gluten free ones, which is great for me!)

The Kandy Bar Kakes come in 3 flavors: Peppermint Patty, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, and S'More.  We received the S'More flavor, and my husband really liked it!  They are a bit crumbly when you open the package, so definitely eat these over a plate or something, but the flavors were really nice.  He said it tasted just like you were eating a s'more.  The only thung missing was crunch.  That's what's so great about eating a s'more.  You have all of that ooey gooey chocolate, the warm toasted marshmellow, and it's sandwiched between the crunch of the graham cracker.  Even though the TastyKake Kandy Bar Kakes have graham cracker dusted on top... it needs that crunch when you bite into it.

I hope TastyKake goes further with this new product and comes out with other flavors.  None of these have any caramel... maybe a Twix Kandy Kake? Maybe even a gluten free one?  Yeah???

Overall, if you're a fan of TastyKake, or if you have a sweet tooth, I would recommend trying these.  They are about $1.69 for a single bar, or $4.49 for a family pack.

Palmolive® Soft Touch Review

I know, beauty blog... talking about dish soap--but hear me out!

I received this soap complimentary from Influenster (and these are all my personal opinions, fyi).  I've been using it for about a week or so.  A bit about me--I have terrible hands and nails.  They are dry, cracked, blech. When I have nail polish on, I must be feeling really fancy because I hate the way my hands look.  I always try to convince my husband to do the dishes because my hands are a mess.

Since we switched to using the Palmolive, I actually really like it.  We have the Vitamine E formula at home (the pink one). It has a really nice smell, and it doesn't dry my hands out at all.  Apparently, they even had a dermatologist test the formula.  That kind of brings the whole "tough on grease, soft on hands" aspect to a different level

I received a second bottle of the Palmolive Soft Touch that I brought into work.  This one was the Aloe formula.  While the Vitamin E is definitely my favorite, I do really like the aloe as well. It has the distinct Palmolive scent.  I'm hoping that sharing my Palmolive with my friends at work, it will encourage them to actually wash the dishes that they bring their lunches in.  I also gave them some coupons, too!

You can find the Palmolive Soft Touch at Walmart.  Read some other reviews of this soap here.  And let me know what you think!
