Product Review: Mama Mellace’s S’mores Mix

November 14, 2012

OMnomnomGnomnomcrunchgodscrunchdroolsofreakingawesometasticallygasmicallygood. Have you all tried this stuff? Jump on it! Jump on it! Jump on it! I think I just died and went to fatty chocolately goodness heaven. And Mama M. is an angel who has paved the road with this fantastic S’mores Mix. And I would probably eat it off the ground. HEY don’t knock it, it would theoretically be Heaven and have no germs right? RIGHT? Mmmkay? I digress. Back to the goodness at hand err mouth.

Website: http://www.mamamellace.com/

Country: USA

Newsletter: http://mamamellace.com/newsletter-c65.php

US Shipping: Can’t buy directly from their site

International Shipping: N/A

Anyways, we were in “town” 30 miles away from BFE where we currently live at the “better” Walmart looking at the snack aisle when I spied this spectacular sounding snack! Always on the look out for something new to try in this backwater we live in, I said hey lets try it. So we did. Well, I did. he he he, I haven’t shared it with anybody. It is basically a mix of mini marshmallows, graham  crackers (aka Golden Grahams cereal my favorite cereal) and chocolate chunks. How can you go wrong? Well, you can’t!

Now there are some flaws in the bag. First the chocolate chunks appear to have once been chocolate chips because there are some floating around in the bag still. So it looks like they may have melted into smallish masses, which can be kind of awkward to eat at times. And dare I say there is TOO much chocolate in the mix for my taste? It is a bit too much. I found myself wishing for more of the graham crunchies. So, I went and dumped some more of my Golden Grahams cereal in the bag and mixed it up. Perfection!

The mini marshmallows are not soft, the are semi- hard which is fine, this isn’t a soft snack mix by any sense of the word. While I was on their corporate site, I didn’t see this mix. Which makes me wonder if they are discontinuing it or just selling it to certain corporations like Wally World. I hope not. It looks as if they sold it to Amazon at one point but it is no longer available there. Here’s a  link of where to find their products.

The do offer other natural and organic snacks too. As an added bonus from their site “Mama Mellace’s products are certified by the Orthodox Union to be either OU or OU-Dairy respectively. Each item listed in Our Products highlights its kosher distinction with the nutritional information and ingredients statement.”

I can’t remember what we paid for this bag of yummy goodness. But I think it would be fairly easy to replicate if they were to stop making it. Since it has some fairly basic ingredients. So, I did a bit of googling and lo and behold somebody DID make it themselves! http://dawnye7-noideas.blogspot.com/2011/11/make-it-yourself.html After looking at the ingredients listed on this blog, I started digging around my bag and realized there were a few more things in the mix I hadn’t realized where there. LOL

So, all in all if you make it our buy it, this is a 5 star snack and I love it. I think this would be a hit at any party all year round!

This was not a paid product review, I bought this shiz myself. :)

Oh Haagen Dazs How Do I Love Thee?

April 30, 2011

OHMouthGasm. OMG now has a new meaning. You heard it hear first and don’t forget it. And it is linked up to ice cream…of course. I thought it would be chocolate at least. Alas no….

Flashback to childhood (mine that is)

I hated HATED anything that was almond flavored. Amaretto made me zuke just thinking about it. LOATHED it, couldn’t stand the smell of it in perfume, food, nothing.

Fast forward to the 21st century, I can’t get enough of it. I lurvvvs it, my precious.  I mean, I will try anything with the words almond or amaretto on it now. LOL Don’t worry I’m not hitting the Disaronno the doctors say I can’t booze it up anymore because of my heart (bastages) living in a DRY county (some bastards idea of a cruel and unusual punishment) doesn’t help either but I digress to the new and OMG taste pleasure at hand.

So, we happened to innocently end up in the ice cream aisle “in town” because the selection is always better at the wally world “in town”. And they had MUCHO selectiono of Ben & Jerry’s and Haagen Dazs including this new (to me anyways) Amaretto Almond Crunch – Description (borrowed from their website): crispy almond brittle enveloped in smooth amaretto ice cream creates a rich and crunchy sensation. Oh please, people it was this and much much more!

What I like about Haagen Dazs is that they don’t overstuff their overpriced ice cream with too much crap. Now, don’t get me wrong, I loves me some B&J but the pieces are getting so big in their ice cream, sometimes I can’t find the damn cream! Anyways, it was a perfect blend of just enough bits and sweet creamy amaretto ice cream. Rich? OMGasm so rich…. I should have stopped at the first 4 or 5 bites and left the pint to somebody else or for later.

*shameface* (sung to the tune of Lady Gaga’s poker face)

Guess who had a sick stomach? ME. Walk of blog shame, I ate the whole pint. Man I am still feeling it today. I haven’t been eating as much sugar and junk stuff for the last month or two. And instead of listening to my body when it said it had had enough at 4 bites, dummy me didn’t listen.

BUT IT WAS SO FREAKING GOOOOOD!

Have any of you tried this flavor? I give it 5 out of 5 cones!

Here are a few others I want to try from the Haagen Dazs line:

blueberry crumble

caramel apple pie

sweet chai latte

banana split which we have in the freezer

Another one of theirs I recently tried and really liked was their Bananas Foster. I don’t see myself getting it all the time, because again like the Amaretto Almond Crunch it is SO rich. But yummy.

What are you favorite ice cream flavors?
