4.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Story About Differences for the Youngest Readers, March 25, 2015
This review is from: A Friend for Freckles (Paperback)
“A Friend for Freckles,” by Erin Beth Liles and illustrated by Alexander Morris, is a sweet tale about Freckles, a three-legged dog who resides at an animal shelter. Freckles is a wonderful dog, but several people who come to the shelter in search of a pet cannot see the wonderful qualities he possesses because they cannot see beyond his challenge. Liles manages to take a subject that is difficult for plenty of adults and breaks it down simply for children in a light but meaningful way. #TeamFreckles!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Run Small -- Not the typical Asics Shoe Fit, March 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Believe the reviews that say this runs too small. I will need at least a half-size bigger. I have been wearing Asics for years now, and I love the brand. But for reasons I cannot fathom, I bought these in my usual size and they are easily a half size too small. What's up with that? I depend on the brand to have consistent sizing or else why bother buying online? Very disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Very Disappoing Experience for this Long-Time FitBit Customer, March 7, 2015
I have been a Fitbit fan for several years, but this is my first "wrist" Fitbit. I find it isn't calculating stairs accurately - I go up and down flights of steps and it does not register any of them. I don't seem to get an accurate step count as I did with the Fitbit One, which I clipped onto myself -- with the wrist Charge, if I don't move my arms, I don't get an accurate reading, which is annoying when you are pushing a grocery cart or carrying something.

Finally, mine came with a glitch that I have not been able to solve via the Community Help Boards: since I started with it, the Charge alarm goes off every night at 11 pm; however, there has never been an alarm set for 11 and is currently no alarm set for any time whatsoever. I have scoured the boards for solutions and have tried several ideas, including setting other alarms and then removing them (re-synching all the while), to no avail. This is problematic because I am usually asleep at 11 and it wakes me up every night. I would like to continue to be able to use the sleep function of the Charge, but to do so, I have to be woken up every night. Bug or feature? You know where I'd stand on that.

I'm incredibly disappointed with this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars The temples unravel, December 25, 2014
I bought these frames. I love the way they look. Unfortunately, there is a serious design flaw in that the cute temples, which are wrapped in a Burberry print material, come unglued. I have been through three pairs, and each one unravels. Burberry, please don't ever do this again. I love this frame so much, and I am very sad to have to go and purchase something completely different because of this product fail. I've wasted money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sent Cocoa Powder With Early Expiration Date, August 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a heavy-duty user of cocoa powder. I bake with it, I throw it into smoothies, etc. I prefer Callebaut or Guittard, but as they seemed to both be unavailable on Amazon at the time I ordered, I tried this cocoa powder based on its reviews. The taste is okay; I don't think I'd order it again, though. What really, really upset me is that I received cocoa powder with an expiration date of three months from now. Really? I spent **how much** on cocoa powder that is old? I don't think I will order anything from this company again. I'll just wait. Very disappointed. And you can't return this. The product may be good, but this fulfillment company stinks.

UPDATE: A representative from the company contacted me today and is willing to give me a refund, but on the condition that I must first remove this review (and then, I will get a refund.) After careful consideration I have decided I will not remove the review and so apparently, I will not, therefore, get a refund. I rely on honest reviews on Amazon.com, and I suspect others do, too. I will shop elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm in Love..., May 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Deep, dark chocolate taste. Decadent for baking or for making hot cocoa. I probably could buy this by the crate load. Need I say more?
