  1. It’s a freakin’ pretzel, but I want it because it’s a baby version and babies anything are so cute!

    My husband says I’m a marketer’s dream…

  2. Never before have so many products in a single post made me this happy. That mug cake. That Think Thin bar… but most of all, THAT COLD STONE CREAMERY HOT CHOCOLATE? I really hope my Walmart gets that! I still haven’t seen any of those Denny’s pancake mixes spotted at Walmart probably a month back! Dx

  3. If that Clear American flavored water is truly unsweetened (no sugar substitutes, no stevia) – it’s about time. I try such things when it’s a freebie or I have a coupon, and I just don’t like the stuff sweetened with non-nutritive sweeteners or stevia. And they all seem to be. Ages ago, all we had was carbonated flavored water (I was partial to lime Perrier) but nobody had thought to add sweeteners to it. I was just wondering last week why now they think everything has to be sweetened.

    1. I’ve thought that exact thing, many many times. I don’t like artificial sweeteners, and 90% of the store brand or the “Sparkling ICE” or even Welch’s new drink all have Ace K and Sucralose, etc. What gets me is that it is usually called “Sparkling water” but actual water doesn’t contain sugar..fruit flavors+sweetener = JUICE. The true unsweetened versions are apparently “Seltzer water” but I still have to double check. I’m quite partial to La Croix’s drinks. The Curate ones are especially delicious and love finding new flavors to try.

      Anyway.. I’m betting the Clear American contains “organic” flavoring.. depending on which product they use (oil/juices).
