Squirrel Brand Amaretto Milk Chocolate Covered Almonds (18 oz.)
Squirrel Brand Amaretto Milk Chocolate Covered Almonds (18 oz.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy and yummy snack, May 6, 2015
I ordered two canisters of these almonds from Sam's Club online, and I gotta say these are much better than I expected. The 18oz. can is smaller than other Squirrel Brand products, but really it's the perfect amount since only a few almonds makes a serving size. The Amaretto and chocolate liquor flavors are very muted, so it makes for a nice subtle taste on top of the milk chocolate. Good stuff!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good option for a must have product..., May 6, 2015
These extenders are a must have, considering that even under clothing keeps being made smaller and smaller. I needed this specific extender for a VS Pink Wear Anywhere bra, and the fit was perfect. Smaller hooks that are closer together, and just a bit longer than what the competition offers. Really good product and great price, except the Dritz brand doesn't have enough coverage between the hooks and skin (gets scratchy after wearing for a while).

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfy kids shoes, May 6, 2015
Great price for a name brand, basic kids running shoe. True to fit, with just a bit of room around the toes. My little girl has worn these all day at school, and even was comfortable during a walk-a-thon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Natural beauty, April 22, 2015
I bought this lip balm on a whim, and I have to admit that it's one of the better Burt's Bees lip products I've tried in a while. The packaging is almost a bit over the top - the lip balm is in a container, in another container. The Sweet Violet shade is flattering, but when applied it's almost too light for my olive skin tone. When compared to similar lip balms like Baby Lips, Alba Tints, and Ulta brand it's nice having a more natural beauty option. As this balm seems lacking in color AND a bit pricey, I'm not certain I'll reorder. But until then, this tube should at least last all summer. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfy toes, April 22, 2015
I'm giving these a full five star rating because of the overall comfort and low price. I have a few pairs of the Easy Spirit Riptide, a similar style of slip on sneaker, and compared to those the Ryka seem much more light weight and have a more supportive fit. These types of shoes definitely run big, so size down if you can. They're great for being around the neighborhood or running a quick errand, but this is definitely not a 'long wear' shoe. The shoes in the stock photo seem purple, but the actual accent color "bougainvillea" is a very bright magenta pink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start your engines!, April 20, 2015
The retail price for this kids case is high, though in all fairness the amount is on par with Heys and other name/character branded hard sided luggage. I've seen similar licensed kids suitcases at club stores (for about half the price) that don't seem nearly as high quality as this. The case itself definitely seems small and is only one single piece as opposed to being part of a full set. But when compared to our old kids' luggage, the frame on the American Tourister (THIS is the correct brand, not what's listed in the description) is much sturdier and the overall cubic size is about equal. The patterned lining is also fun to look at. Both sides of the case fit plenty of clothes and travel necessities, we were easily able to pack a week's worth of outfits.

The photos (taken on a tablet, apologies for the fuzziness!) are meant to compare sizing between our old case (average sized kids luggage) and this cool Cars hardsided luggage. The Cars rolling duffle is by Heys (which also has a grey/white pattern lining), purchased here on Amazon a few years ago. Both cases measure about 18"; the Cars hardsided case has much larger wheels and the handle extends much higher than the duffle. Amazon shipped two hardsided cases together, and each was packed snuggly in its own shipping box. Overall a really great buy (it's on sale now, but I was given the full retail price on Amazon), especially when combined with promo codes and gift cards!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get out of town!, April 20, 2015
Yes, the retail price is high though in all fairness the amount is on par with Heys and other name/character branded hard sided luggage. I've seen similar licensed kids suitcases at club stores (for about half the price) that don't seem nearly as high quality as this. The case itself definitely seems small and is only one single piece as opposed to being part of a full set. But when compared to our old kids' luggage, the frame on the American Tourister (THIS is the correct brand) is much sturdier and the overall cubic size is about equal.

The photos (taken on a tablet, apologies for the fuzziness!) are meant to compare sizing between our old case (average sized kids luggage) and this beautiful Frozen luggage. The Disney Princess case was purchased about four years ago from the Disney Store on clearance as part of a set. Both cases measure 18"; the legs on our old case makes it appear taller. However the Frozen case has much larger wheels and the handle extends much higher. Amazon shipped the two cases together, and each was packed snuggly in its own shipping box. Overall a really great buy, especially when combined with promo codes and gift cards!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars On the go indeed..., April 18, 2015
On a whim I ordered this three pack of Banana Boat Kids sunscreen. The price per tube was less than the lowest I found at our local big box store, so this seemed like a good deal. Easy for throwing into a backpack for a day out, and especially for carryon travel in a quart bag. The issues I had with this kit were that one of the tubes was already leaking (most likely from pressurization during shipment), and there was no zipper attached to the cute mini beach bag - had to rip into it to get the sunscreen out!


Quaker Chewy Quinoa Granola Bars, Chocolate Nut Medley, 6.1 Oz

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent snack option, April 18, 2015
These Quaker Quinoa Bars are tasty and honestly an ok alternative to other chocolate granola bar choices out there. The basic Quaker Chewy bars have about 7 grams of sugar and the BIG bars have about 12 grams - these quinoas have 9g. The chocolate in these mixes very well with the crunchy texture - definitely a different taste than the usual chewy bars. The kids didn't complain much about the flavor, but us adults finished most of the pack.

The price is so-so, as you can probably find a better deal during a sale at your local grocer. The size/weight/quantity description here on Amazon as of today is still incorrect, even though I've talked to customer service and messaged about the inaccurate info. Definitely good to try, though I'd rather pay less for a subscription, or at least get a larger quantity for the price listed. The item I was sent for my Prime Pantry order was for 1 single box of five bars, with a net total of 6.1 oz.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute, but not for me, April 15, 2015
I feel bad leaving such a so-so review, since these shorts seemed to fit everyone else. Unfortunately, while the shorts fit me, they didn't actually look GOOD. Normal fit through the leg, perfect mid-thigh length, and cute pop of color. However as I'm curvy and don't have a flat tummy or abdomen, the waist looked terrible on me. There's no way I could have worn these without constantly pulling my shirt down to cover the zipper area. Alas, these had to be returned.
