4.0 out of 5 stars A bit grittier than others, but super nutty!, September 1, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been eating another brand (Nutiva) for a while now and this is a good alternative.

Nutritionally compared to Nutiva, it's about the same, a good combination of fat, protein and fiber.
Taste wise, very nutty and enjoyable. I love making waffles with it. For lunch I like to mix about a 1/4 cup with some water, rice and/or beans with spices (cumin preferably). Cook that up for a few minutes, makes great vegan taco filling!

The only reason I removed a star is it's texture. This seems to be quite a bit grittier than other brands and does not seem to absorb as much water/liquid either.

Overall a great hemp protein. Easy on the stomach and tastes great!

Grasslands Road Assortment Road Metal Garden Plaque, 7-Inch, Set of 4

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing detail, look stunning!, August 31, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These were purchased as gifts and both individuals love them.
The colors are bright and vibrant and very well painted. There is ZERO discrepancy between what is pictured and what was received.

These can used both indoor or outdoor, but bring them in during the winter as that can be quite harsh on the paint.

I would be more than happy to purchase these again as more gifts for anyone who loves gardening.


Zebra Cadoozles Starters Mechanical Pencil 2.0mm Color, 12-Pack (52812)
Zebra Cadoozles Starters Mechanical Pencil 2.0mm Color, 12-Pack (52812)
Price: $15.23

4.0 out of 5 stars Some colors are just too faint..., August 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are great beginner mechanical pencils.

The bold colored lead is great for school work and normal every day home stuff (note jotting, doodling, list making, etc.).
The triangular barrel design is great for holding, amazing control and comfort.

The only issue is that about half of the colors are just too faint. The yellow, light blue, pink, light green, and the peach colors are difficult to see on plain white paper.

But overall, great to have around and for school!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for final assembly cleaning!, August 13, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
WypAll's X70 towels are just awesome!

Instead of using countless shop rags, these have become the go to towel. They are strong, absorb a ton of liquid, and are without a doubt are reusable over and over.

In addition to being tough, they are lint free. So for intricate part assembly (such as electrical items, brakes, etc.), a final wipe down with these towels and some solvent and assembly can proceed without hesitation.

So no more laundered shop rags, just a few boxes of these!

DII 10 Piece Printed Terry Kitchen Starter Set for New Home, Apartment, Dorms includes 6 Dishtowels, 2 Potholders and 2 Ovenmitt - Rooster
Price: $21.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but good enough!, August 13, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This DII kitchen starter set is fairly good for the price.

The quality of the terry cloth is slightly above average, definitely not the softest or most absorbent but they work well.
The print on them is actually pretty good and doesn't affect the absorbency like other towels I have/have used on the past.

The oven mitts are much too small for me, but fit normal sized adults just fine. That and they offer good protecting from handling hot objects. Same with the pot holders (which are my favorite of this set).

The only reason I gave them four stars is that the towels aren't hemmed all that well. They have a lot of loose threads and on some the edges are not completely stitched.

For the price, a good starter set and nothing more.

2.0 out of 5 stars BPA free... but what plastic IS it made from?, August 6, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Right from the get go I knew this tumbler was going to be an issue.

First off was the double walled portion, it was only half sealed and loose. So the inner portion of the tumbler wiggles around.

The tumbler is listed as BPA free, great! However it has ZERO markings as to what it is made of OR if it is made with BPS or BPF (both of which aren't really any better than BPA). Being made in China without any symbol as to the composition of the plastic (PET? HDPE? LDPE?) is quite worrisome.

The only positive thing about the tumbler is the straw and the tight sealing lid. The lid seals very tightly, enough so that it can be used as a shaker bottle.

So with the double wall portion of the tumbler only half sealed (thus water gets in between the two walls) and not knowing what material this is made from, this tumbler can only receive a marginal 2 stars. One star for the nice straw and one star for the tight sealing lid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well for dry skin, combination or oily skin may want to avoid., August 6, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Really can't say too much more about it other than it works well.

It takes very little to get the job done so this 4.0 ounce bottle is lasting a VERY long time.

The only complaint is that if you have either combination or oily skin it seems to leave your skin a bit oilier than other cleansing oils/cleaners. A quick cleanse afterwards works well and prevents oil buildup.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit tight in the crotch, but not bad!, July 31, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wear a 2XL to a XLT depending on the maker of the clothing due to my height. Often the 2XL is just to 'blousy' and doesn't quite fit right.
I opted for the XL tall version of these coveralls and they fit about right.

The arms are a bit short when I fully reach out, but that's fine.
The legs are the right length, however the crotch room is a bit tight. I think they still need to get a bit more length in the torso area to accommodate things a bit better.

Overall I'm pleased.

3.0 out of 5 stars I hate the handle!, July 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Unfortunately this is one SOG knife that I am not a fan of.

The blade itself is good. The 8Cr13MoV is easy to sharpen and holds a edge well enough not to require constant resharpening. The recurve blade is nice for plunge cuts as well as slicing, glad to see them use this style instead of a clip or drop point.

The real issue for me is the handle. They say it's 'ergonomically contoured'... I find it just clumsily designed and too small to fit comfortably in my hands. The only saving grave is that it has a rubberized grip that makes it easier to hold onto.

As for the LED lights, they work great! Long running (I left them on and they ran for about 2 hours straight on the single AAA battery). I think they could have slightly increased the length of the handle to allow a second AAA battery for increased run time, but still 2 hours is plenty long. The battery cap also has a O ring to reduce the likelihood of any water get it's way to the battery... a small but important detail!

The GRN sheath works well. Easy to use and holds the blade securely. The built in sharpener works (not the best, but can't be too picky about a built it sharpener!). And the fact that it has cutouts for where the LEDs are located allows you to use the lights WITHOUT unsheathing it, making it a fairly safe and impromptu flashlight if need be.

2.0 out of 5 stars No effect on me..., July 17, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Hate to say it, but Cellucor Nitric Oxide just isn't cutting it.
Maybe it's me or something but this has had zero effect on me. No additional pump or anything.

Plus side is that I had no side effects from taking it.

So it looks like I'll be sticking with the cheaper, EFFECTIVE, GAT Nitraflex tablets.
