Have You Tried UNREAL Candy Unjunked???

As a BzzAgent, I sometimes get to try goodies from different companies. I share my thoughts with friends and family about the products I receive. I was very excited to get the UNREAL campaign. Free candy! Who can beat that?

If you've never heard of UNREAL, it's candy unjunked. That means there are no preservatives, no artificial ingredients, no corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, and no GMOs. It has less sugar than competing brands, and, in some of the candies, the same amount of sugars as fruits.

UNREAL candy is available at the following stores: CVS, Food4Less, Fred Meyer, Kroger, Michael's, Ralph's, Riteaid, Staples, and Walgreens. However, I had to go to a few different stores before I was able to find it. They have said that they are trying to get the candy in more stores, so it may be available everywhere soon.

I chose the UN41, which is candy coated chocolates (think M&Ms). I do have to say that UNREAL candy is a little more expensive than other candies. The price was just over $1 for an individual bag. You can tell that the chocolate has less sugar than other brands. The milk chocolate tastes more like bittersweet. Also, it has a different texture than I was accustomed to. My husband tried it, and said it tasted like a protein bar.

Overall, I would say UNREAL candy is a great option for people that need lower sugar content or have preservative allergies. It is also great for people that try to avoid artificial ingredients. I think, for me, it would take an acquired taste before purchasing over other candy manufacturers.

My Experience with the Glade Expressions Collection!

As a BzzAgent, I sometimes get the privilege of trying out new products from various companies. This time, I was lucky enough to receive coupons for a free Glade Expressions fragrance mist and oil diffuser.

I love Glade products, and I was super excited because this is the first refillable fragrance mist from Glade. I didn't have an option of scents to choose from. The only one available at the store I visited was Pineapple and Mangosteen. I absolutely love it! It's fruity and tropical and makes my house smell wonderful.

The oil diffuser comes in a trendy little holder, available in bamboo or white. I chose the bamboo. It is very cute and matches my decor. I was kind of skeptical of the ability of the diffuser to fill my home with fragrance. I was proven wrong. I can smell the diffuser as soon as I step foot in the doorway. I can't say enough about the lovely smell that drifts through my home. The best part about the oil diffuser is that it lasts for 30 days guaranteed. If not, Glade will refund your money.

I can't wait until I've used up all of my fragrance mist and oil in the diffuser so I can try one of the other great scents. They are  Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice, 
Lavender & Juniper BerryCotton & Italian Mandarin, and, of course, the Pineapple and Mangosteen that I already mentioned.
