New Boneless Wings at Sonic Drive In


sonic wings

 

I am super excited to tell you about the new boneless wings at Sonic Drive-In. My family and I were able to try the Asian Sweet Chili wings and they were awesome. Typically when we want an order of wings, we have to order from another restaurant and it’s not as convenient or affordable as Sonic.

You can order Sonic’s new wings in three flavors; Barbecue, Buffalo and Asian Sweet Chili. They also come in quantities of 6, 12 or 24. This works out perfectly as we are avid sports fans and swinging by the local Sonic Drive-In to snag wings makes our weekends a lot easier. I’m excited to head back out to Sonic this weekend and order a 24 pack of wings with different sauces. They allow you to mix or match so you can try more than one flavor. We’re going to get Barbecue and Buffalo.

This offer is only available for a limited time at Sonic Drive-In. Head over to your nearest location and try an order for yourself.  The wings are made from 100% white meat, so no worries about what you are eating. Be sure to mix and match so you can taste all the flavors.

Feel Refreshed with reBloom

It’s been a very long time since I’ve had a good uninterrupted sleep in my own bed. Between being a mommy and blogging, sleep isn’t a top priority. I know it should be and believe me, I have been working on it. Shutting my mind off is difficult for me. I’m a worry wort and things are constantly running through my head. I started writing things down in a notebook before bed and that has helped some, but I am still having a tough time falling asleep quickly.

Being a blogger has allowed me to try different products and services. I don’t mind being a guinea pig, because I probably wouldn’t have known about these products otherwise. I was sent a nice sample pack of the reBloom sleep drink. It immediately appealed to me and I was anxious to try this product.

The first night I followed the directions on the bottle and drank a bottle of reBloom. I’m a skeptical person, so it took me a while to slow down my brain and just let the product work. I finally fell asleep. I did wake up early in the morning due to my daughter crawling in bed with us, but I was able to fall right back asleep. That doesn’t typically happen. Usually, I am tossing and turning trying to get comfortable. A few hours later I woke up at 8AM and crawled out of bed. I felt good. It did take a while to fall asleep because of my own anxiety, but I woke up feeling ready to go. I wasn’t craving more sleep. This is something I haven’t experienced in a very long time.

That evening I was excited to try reBloom again. I had to make sure this wasn’t a fluke or a mental thing. I drank a bottle before bed and fell asleep with no problems. I don’t remember much after snuggling under my blankets. Again, I woke up feeling ready to work. I was refreshed and didn’t feel groggy. After two nights, I was sold. I think prior to reBloom, I was getting sleep but it wasn’t a deep healthy sleep.

reBloom contains all natural ingredients that help your body relax and improve the quality of your sleep.

If you have problems shutting it off or getting a good nights sleep, head over to the reBloom website. You can find all kinds of information about the product and great testimonials.

ibitz

 

If you are looking for a fun way to get the kids motivated, you need to check out my review on the ibitz PowerKey Wireless Activity Monitor.  The more active your child is, the better rewards they can get. In addition to that, kids can use the ibitz with the Geo Palz app which allows them to create a character. By keeping active and making healthy choices, the pet will continue to thrive and grow.  This is a fantastic way to get the kiddos on track and stay focused.

You can set up rewards and goals. Once Lilly met her activity goal, she was able to have a picnic at the park. The ibitz really motivated her. She also thought she was so cool because we attached the tracker to her shoe.

Spa Sonic Face and Body Polisher = A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

spa sonicare system

Are you still looking for a mother’s day gift? Buying for mom’s can be so tough because they have everything. I was sent a Spa Sonic Face and Body Polisher to review and I will say that this is a perfect Mother’s Day gift idea.

This product is used and recommended by spas and dermatologists.  The Spa Sonic Face and Body Polisher is the essential first step in a healthy skin care ritual. The waterproof device can be used on both the face and body to deeply cleanse while removing impurities, exfoliating, tightening and minimizing pores.  With four brush head attachments included, the Spa Sonic makes a great gift for every mom.

I received a pink set and it’s adorable. The Spa Sonic is available in WhiteLavender and Pink; with three new colors, OrchidTangerine and Optic Yellow debuting this month.

I used the Spa Sonic and the pumice attachment on my feet for a pedicure and it worked beautifully. I also used the other attachments to exfoliate dry skin on my back. Again, it worked great.

The Spa Sonic is a nice gift that any mother will appreciate. You can snag one of these over at Target for $37.99. It’s on sale right now and down from the regular price of $54.99. There is a $5 off online coupon code that drop the price to $32.99. Use promo code: BEAUTY5 at checkout. Shipping is free if you use your RED debit card.

Type in Spa Sonic in the search box on the Target site and the entire line will pop up for you. 🙂

Red, White and Blue Jello Bowl

strawberry 3 Good Cook sent us a really neat BAKE A BOWL bakeware set. It’s cool because you can bake anything in this pan. It can be something savory or sweet.

What ever you want to make, this pan will do it for you. Jason and I opted to make Jello bowls. It’s already so hot here in Texas, so we wanted to make something cool and leave the oven off.

All we did was follow the directions on the Jello packet and let the mold set up in the Bake A Bowl pan. About 3 hours later, we have super cute Jello bowls. We filled the bowl up with whipped cream and placed strawberries around the bowl for garnish…..and dipping. The pan made 6 nice sized bowls and they turned out so cute.

Check the the Bake A Bowl bakeware set here, and all Nifty Thrifty Savings readers will save 25% off any order from the Good Cook Sweet Creations line when you use promo code: BAKEBOWL

Sonic Drive-In: Summer of Shakes

SONIC Chocolate Covered Jalapeno Shake corner logo

Did you know that Sonic Drive-In has started their Summer of Shakes deal and have added three more yummy shake combinations?  This year Sonic added OREO® Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel and Chocolate Covered Jalapeno to make a whopping 25 shake combinations you can order this summer.  Don’t they sound amazing? 

Sonic Drive-In hooked me up with a Chocolate Covered Jalapeno shake to review. This may seem like a bizarre combination, but the shake was very good. With this shake you get sweet and savory. The jalapeno flavor isn’t too heavy, but it will leave a touch of heat on your tongue. I enjoyed the tangy flavor of the chocolate and peppers together. This shake is definitely one you need to try for yourself.  My husband tried the OREO Peanut Butter and he said it was heavenly and would be a dream shake for all peanut butter lovers.

summer of shakes

The best part of the Sonic Drive-In’s Summer of shakes is that everyday after 8pm, ALL shakes are 1/2 off!!! Skip the snow cone and enjoy one of the 25 varieties of shakes available.  You must try the Chocolate Covered Jalapeno shake. It’s crazy good and perfect if you enjoy savory flavor.

Trunki PaddlePak Review & Giveaway

paddlepack2

 

CONGRATS TO MELANIE C. & Laurie E!!!! 

Hey everyone!  I am back with another review and I am excited to share it with you.

The makers of the Trunki ride on suit case have created new product called the PaddlePak and they sent me one to review. Lilly is all about helping mommy work and the PaddlePak was a great item to test out with her.

lilly 2

The PaddlePak is set to drop on the U.S. this month. Before now, the product was available only in the U.K. If you are familiar with the Trunki, then you will be excited about this review.

PaddlePak is a water resistant backpack for children ages 2+. It’s getting close to summer and we’ll be hitting the pool a lot. Our town  has a new waterpark opening next month. If you plan on heading out to the park, on vacation or the pool, the PaddlePak will be perfect for your kiddo.

One thing I really liked about Lilly’s back pack was that it was not big and bulky like her school back pack. Instead the Paddlepak is compact but it surprisingly held a lot of items. This past weekend was Easter and we were on the go the whole time. She attended two birthday parties, had a baseball game and headed out to Grandma’s house. We carried clothes, shoes, toys and her inhaler all weekend. It was perfect.

Kids have a tendency to not pay attention and will set their stuff down anywhere. We had a lot of that this weekend. The Paddlepak held up great, everything was secure and most of all, CLEAN. I asked Lilly what her favorite part of the backpack was. She said she liked the zipper because it was a good hiding place for her money. My daughter is obsessed with change and she’s serious about keeping quarters on hand. You just never know when we might find a claw game or candy machine somewhere. Those are serious priorities for a five year old.

I’m going to give the Paddlepak a BIG thumbs up. Lilly and I enjoyed working together on this review and we highly recommend checking  into this product. You can carry a lot of items without bulk and it’s waterproof!!

Head over to the Trunki US facebook page or follow them on twitter. You will want to be in the know about their products.

Guess What?! I get to give two PaddlePaks away! If you win, you are sure to be one first ones to have one of these backpacks. Your friends and their kiddos will want to get their own.

Gorton’s Artisan Fillets Review + Real Solutions Sweepstakes

Gortons_Artisan_LemonandCrackedPeppercorn

I have another review for you. Gorton’s sent me some coupons to try something off of their new Artisan line for free. We chose the new Lemon & Cracked Peppercorn fish fillets.

I am stoked about this review because we love Gortons products. Getting to try a product of theirs was fantastic. Jason and I love adding lemon pepper to our fish, so this flavor was a no brainer. We used the Lemon & Cracked Peppercorn fillets in our fish tacos. and they came out great. The panko breadcrumbs added the perfect crunch to every bite. The flavor of the fillet was yummy and the tacos tasted like restaurant quality.

The best part of the experience was watching Lilly eat the fillet. She is 5 and is a picky eater. I believe she said, “this is my favorite fish ever.”

Jason and I love this fish and so did Lilly. I’m going to give these fillets a big thumbs up.

Gortons_RealSolutionsSweeps

Head over to gortons.com and print off a coupon so you can try the Gorton’s artisan fillet products.  There is also a recipe section on the Gorton’s website to give you ideas on what to make with their products.

Spring Cake Bars

mold 3

Good Cook sent us a cute spring bark mold to test out.  We decided to make small cake bars. The molds are perfect serving sizes and the cake will be stenciled with the spring time designs. The mold is made of silicon and can be used for baking.

You can create this same recipe. I just used white cake mix and divided it into three different bowls. I applied food coloring to each bowl to make yellow, pink and blue batter. I poured the batter into the silicon mold and baked the cake per the instructions.

mold 8

Once the cake was cool, I removed it from the mold and used candy melts to make the toppers for the cake squares.

Good Cook has a great line dedicated to springtime cooking. Check out their other Sweet Creations spring cookware tools. These tools are available now and I can offer my readers 25% off with promo code: SpringFling

Sonic Drive In Sweet Potato Tots Review

sweet tots 2

Hey everyone. I have another tasty review to tell you about. This time my family and I headed over to Sonic to try their Sweet Potato Tots since they are back for a limited time.

sweet potato tots

The tots were fresh and hot and had a lot of flavor. You could really taste the sweet potato flavor in them. The tots were more dense than the regular tater tots and we seemed to get full quicker and ate less. That is a huge plus.

Another benefit from ordering the sweet potato tots is that the protein content is much higher. So you are choosing a healthier side dish when ordering sweet potato tots over regular tots. Also, the sweeter tots seemed to be a lot less salty which makes you feel like you are eating a bit healthier too.

I recommend trying these tots before they go away. It’s a nice change of  pace from the traditional potato products.

NEW Sonic Master Blast at Sonic Drive-In

I am so excited to share my experience about the NEW Sonic Master Blast over at Sonic Drive-In. There are six amazing flavors and it was tough to choose which flavor I wanted. They have Triple Chocolate, Turtle Pecan, Banana Split, Pineapple Upside Down, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Caramel Brownie.  Don’t they all sound fantastic? I love pecans so I selected the Turtle Pecan.

Turtle Pecan Master Blast

O-M-G! It was so good. The top was covered with chocolate chip minis and big chunks of pecan. This flavor more than exceeded my expectations.

Each blast is created using real ice cream and and hand mixed with your favorite toppings. The next time I go, I’m getting the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Master Blast. The medium size is what I ordered and there is plenty to share with your hubby, friends or kiddos. I shared mine with Jason and Lilly and they loved it.

PatchPak Review And Giveaway

403691_341335979307233_1503309678_n

AND THE WINNER IS…………. TRISHA!  twright50@

 

I was given the chance to try out and review an amazing lunchbag courtesy of Patchpak.com. They are from my neck of the woods, Fort Worth Texas.

Patchpak.com offers large patchpaks, youth patchpaks, lunchbags, binders and lots of patches. These are very fun and kids will love them. I have a four year old who went nuts when we received the lunchbag and patches in the mail. I let her pick out her own patches to showcase her personality and that was so fun for her. From her reaction alone, I can tell these products will be a hit with the kids.

The large and youth patchpaks are backpacks made so patches can stick to them. Patchpak.com has a large variety of patches for kids to choose from. Patchpak also makes binders for patches. I love that.

School kids have their own styles and have no problems expressing who they are. These patchpak items are a fantastic way to set themselves apart from everyone else. The patches stick on the paks very easily and the velcro is very sturdy. Lilly has been playing with her patches for weeks and they haven’t lost their grip at all.

Take a look at the pink lunchbag we selected as part of our review.

It is sturdy and has plenty of space for your child’s lunch.
