Thursday, August 30, 2012 Real. And SO GOOD. (Review, BzzAgent)

I got a change to sample UnReal Candy free as a BzzAgent. Oh my goodness, is it awesome. Unreal candy is candy that has been "Unjunked". No corn syrup, no GMOS, no partially hydrogenated oils, no artificial anything.

I know what you're thinking. No, it does not taste like cardboard. It tastes like highbrow chocolates.

I tried Unreal 77 (Peanut Butter Cups). And it is awesome. Creamy peanut butter, a smooth chocolate coating. But they're TOO DANGED SMALL.

I also tried Unreal 5 (Chocolate, nougat and caramel). Again, way too good and way too small. (.:

There's a bit of a transition in can't expect them to taste like their mainstream counterparts. They don't. But once your palate adjusts, you won't miss those bad old chemicals one bit.

A plus...normally chocolate of any kind gives me major heartburn. Neither of these did.

You can find them at CVS, Walgreens, BJ's, Michael's, Rite Aid, and more places every day!

Bumbo...or Dumbos?

Much drama about a Bumbo recall. Of course babies can fall out of them...there's no harness. They are designed for use on the floor only, which is outlined on the package when you buy them. They are meant for babies who can sit up with minimal support, and should not be left unattended.

Because that is apparently too complex for some people to grasp, the manufacturers are sending you kits to attach a harness to them, which I think defeats the purpose of the design. It will also cause the idiots who originally ignored the instructions and left their kid unattended on a table in it to assume it's now safe to do just that.

If you can't read the instructions on a baby object, or even barring that, use basic common sense that would dictate that leaving a baby in a seat with no strap on an elevated surface is unsafe, you may want to reconsider the whole parenting thing.

Snips, Snails, Cottontails...and MURDER.

Just kidding on the murder. The Cottontails diapers are so far holding their own, and all of my daughter's. She hasn't really unleashed the Kraken yet, though. We all think our kids are just the most charming things ever spawned, but sometimes is irrefutable. Like when my son tells me he "loves me too much". Or when Baby Girl stops midwail when she sees me and grins. The big question, of course, is how much is too much when it comes to sharing. I personally only post when one of the children do something particularly entertaining. But what's the protocol? Is someone out there really interested in every little detail? If they are, should I call the police? Of course, this is the internet, which means someone will get annoyed no matter what you do. I'm curious. Random: if I see that damned Taco Bell Doritos taco commercial one more time, I'm going to snap, and the aftermath will be heinous. Damn, those look good.

The Search for a Generic Diaper that Doesn't Suck: Part One - Cottontails

I've been one with Pampers since my first baby, twelve years ago. They have been the most consistent quality and poopthrough preventers. But generic cost half as much, so I'm curious as to whether or not cheap may not mean crap. First elimination: Food Lion Generic. Can not recall the name, both those things couldn't hold a lonely teardrop, much less my daughter's digestive aftermath. Now up for testing: Giant Foods generic, aka Cottontails. I know, squee, aww, all that. But cute will not help them against my daughter, master pooper and destroyer of onesies. I will continue soon.
