New Giveaway: Zevia Soda 6-Packs

Screen Shot 2015-01-17 at 9.50.04 AM

Another fun company I met at the Mom Meets WOW! Summit was Zevia.

We sampled various flavors of their soda and even their new sparkling beverages at the summit.

I’m not typically a soda drinker but these aren’t typical sodas. These sodas have no calories or sugar and are sweetened naturally with Monk fruit and Stevia. They are sold at Whole Foods and other grocery stores.

Lots of fun flavors including Dr. Stevia, orange and strawberry. It does taste different than traditional soda but I love a product that uses natural ingredients and no artificial colors. It’s worth a try!

Babies R Us Great Trade-In Event- Starts Friday

Babies R Us is hosting their Great Trade-In event again and it starts this Friday. This is a great way to bring in used baby items (strollers, car seats, etc.) for recycling and get great coupons in exchange.

I traded in an old car seat last year and received two pages of store coupons. One coupon was for an additional 50% off the super clearance prices they had. I scored lots of clothes and PJs for next to nothing.

I can’t guarantee what coupons they will hand out this year but I do recommend trading in at the Babies R Us in Latham for the best selection, especially on clothing (they carry up to size 5).

Read more about the event HERE.

Giveaway: Win a Prize Pack of Goodies

This past November, I attended the Moms Meet WOW! Summit where I met one of the owners of Mrs. Thinster’s Cookie Thins and Party-Tizers Dippin’ Chips.

They served us the cookies at an event the first night of the conference and then had samples available throughout the two days we were there- and these things were addicting!


Mrs. Thinster’s Cookie Thins are thin and crispy so you can get quite a few in one serving. Many moms there were also excited that they are manufactured in a factory that does not process any nuts. They are non-GMO and use no corn syrup or artificial ingredients.

The three favors are cake batter, brownie batter and chocolate chip (my favorite)

You can find these cookies in the DELI SECTION of the grocery store (ShopRite carries them).


I also found big bags at BJ’s Wholesale Club:

BJ's cookies



Next we tried the Party-Tizers Dippin’ Chips. If you’re going to eat chips, why not eat some with some good ingredients like kale and quinoa? (Actually the veggie flavor was my favorite- they are really good!)

veggie chips

These are also found in the DELI SECTION. (I’ve seen them at both ShopRite and Price Chopper)


These chips are also non-GMO and are gluten-free.

I really loved both these products and thought it was a fun company. That’s How We Roll. That’s their name! They are based in New Jersey and one of the owners was the creator of Pretzel Crisps and another created Veggie Straws- so you know they’re on to something good here.

That’s How We Roll sent me a fun box of samples, coupons and a few useful items (see below) – and they want to give away the same box to one of my readers!

That's How We Roll

Want to win the box? One winner will have the same box shipped to their house! 

Enter below by leaving a comment. Let me know if you’ve tried either and, if so, what’s your favorite flavor?

Leave a comment by 9 PM on 1/22 to be entered to win.

Good luck and if you want to try them in the meantime, click HERE for a printable coupon for $1 off a bag of Party-Tizers Dippin’ Chips!
