Have you ever tried the Stonyfield cream-top yogurts?

If you have and you love them, you’ll love these.

If not, and you just like yogurt…you’ll love these, too.


Stonyfield, based off of feedback from their consumers, has now stirred in the cream to create an even smoother, silkier texture and delicious taste.

If you’re a cream top-yogurt fan, you will be happy to know that the cream you’ve always loved is still there, it’s just stirred in. 

Their whole milk yogurt is the creamiest yogurt I’ve ever had!


As always, all of their yogurts are organic and sweetened only with naturally milled cane sugar. They’re made without artificial colors or flavors, and are made from organic milk produced without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, or artificial growth hormones (rBST).

Kristina from Stonyfield sent me a package of their new whole milk yogurts with the cream stirred in to sample (yes, the samples were free, but my opinions are my own).

Honestly, I had never had whole milk yogurt before these arrived on my doorstep. I actually can’t get them around here, so I was happy to be able to try these flavors!

In the sample pack, I got:

  • Plain Whole Milk Yogurt
  • French Vanilla
  • White Chocolate Raspberry
  • Strawberries ’n’ Cream
  • Chocolate Underground

I’ve tried their Chocolate Underground yogurt, but only in the fat free version.

And, after trying these yogurts, I can see why people love the whole milk varieties. They are insanely creamy and are not nearly as tart than other yogurts.

In fact, their Strawberries ’n’ Cream yogurt tasted more like strawberry ice cream than yogurt. Delicious!

And while I loved the Chocolate Underground, I think my favorite was a tie between the Strawberries ’n’ Cream and the White Chocolate Raspberry.



The White Chocolate Raspberry yogurt reminded me of the raspberry pudding pops I used to have during the summers growing up. Do you remember those?



If you haven’t tried their new Whole Milk yogurts (or if you’ve never tried ANY of their Whole Milk Yogurts), here’s your chance!

The prize: 4 Stonyfield coupons (for both quart and 6 oz. size), plus a reusable Stonyfield bag.

To Enter:

  • Leave me a comment with your all time favorite yogurt flavor


Good luck! I’ll be picking a winner on Thursday!

Happy, happy Friday !!!

I am SO ready for the weekend – my family is coming up to visit and it’s going to be fun! We have plans for floatinis, movie watching, froyo eating, and having lots of laughs.

And to start your weekend off right, I’ve got a couple of giveaways for you!

First –


A few weeks ago, I received these new teas from Celestial Seasonings to sample (the samples were sent to me free, but my opinions are my own).

I was sent three new Antioxidant Max Green Teas to try and their new Sleepytime Decaf Lemon Jasmine Green Tea.

Antioxidant Max Green Teas

Combining the health benefits and smooth taste of Celestial Seasonings green tea with delicious, nutrient-rich superfruits, these new wellness blends contain 35% more free radical-fighting flavonoid antioxidants than other leading flavored green teas and provide 20% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C with each serving. Available in three flavors:

• Blackberry Pomegranate

• Blood Orange Star Fruit

• Dragon Fruit Melon

Sleepytime Decaf Lemon Jasmine Green

The newest variety in the lineup of delicious, health-supporting green teas features the well-known blend of chamomile, spearmint and lemongrass featured in the bestselling specialty tea of all time, Sleepytime herbal tea, but adds healthful decaf green tea and a refreshing, calming lemon jasmine

These came at the perfect time, too. I don’t drink hot tea much in the summer, but in the winter, that’s all I want during the day.

I already love their regular Sleepytime Tea, but the new Lemon Jasmine Green is delicious! I think it will be my new bedtime tea.

Out of all the new teas, I liked the the Blackberry Pomegranate and the Sleepytime Lemon Jasmine the best! But I definitely enjoyed them all.

Also – and this is something I love – Celestial Seasonings’ tea boxes use 100% recycled paperboard, including 35% post-consumer waste, and can be recycled again when empty. AND their natural fiber tea bags are manufactured through a totally chlorine-free (TCF) process, meaning that no dioxin is released into the environment. Plus, they never contain starch or gluten, and they’re completely biodegradable and compostable – making them better for you and for our planet. Best of all, because our unique pillow-style tea bag doesn’t need a string, tag, staple or individual wrapper, we save 3.5 million pounds of waste from entering landfills every year! Pretty cool, right?

Want to win these teas to try for yourself?

One lucky winner will get the package pictured above, which includes one box of each of their new flavors.

To Enter:

  • Leave a comment telling me YOUR favorite tea

For additional entries:

  • Follow @SleepytimeBear on Twitter and leave a comment
  • “Like” him on Facebook and leave a comment
  • Tell me what flavor tea you would make if you could create your own – it can be anything!

I’ll pick the winner on Monday morning, February 7th.

And remember the Chobani Holiday Recipe Challenge I participated in?

Well, all of the recipes have been posted on their Facebook page and if you vote, YOU have a chance of winning an entire year of yogurt! Yup – a whole year of free yogurt. Can you imagine?

Enter here for you own chance at an oven mitt, a tote bag, and most importantly, an entire year’s worth of Chobani!

Happy Friday!

Fashion for this week coming soon…

What says “Happy Holidays” more than Chex Mix?

The holiday season is often the only time of year I have any type of Chex mix, but I want to change that!

Thanks to MyBlogSpark, Chex, and Kroger, I received a holiday Chex prize pack (including two boxes of Chex and a $25 gift card to Kroger for additional ingredients) to try out some festive holiday recipes and find new ways to use Chex cereal all year round.


My favorite Chex Mix recipes have always been the classic and puppy chow. I honestly haven’t tried any other variations, so this weekend, I decided to try a new recipe.


With a full day of football on Saturday and some nasty winter weather, it was the perfect day to make snacks and enjoy them during the games.


My choice?

The Big Game Chex Mix. It seemed fitting to have during the ACC Championship Game (Go Hokies!), and I love those honey mustard pretzels so I knew we would enjoy this one.

I didn’t have the smoked almonds, so I used roasted/salted cashews instead and I halved the entire recipe.

It still turned out delicious – crunchy, tangy and the perfect football-watching food.


And the best part?

I made this in less than 15 minutes AND I made it in the microwave! No oven required – just a few stops to stir and that was it. Easy!

Want a Chex Holiday Gift Pack of your own?

One lucky person will receive two packages of Chex Cereal along with a Kroger gift card to use to buy other ingredients you might need to make your dream Chex Mix.

Even better – the Kroger Family of Stores will have Chex cereal on sale so you can impress your guests without stressing your wallet. For 3 weeks, from December 2nd – December 25th, Kroger will offer Chex cereal at their lowest prices of the year!

To Enter:

  • Leave me a comment telling me YOUR favorite way to use Chex cereal

For an additional entry:

  • Check out all the Chex recipes and tell me which one you’re most excited to make!

I’ll pick a winner Monday, December 13th – Good luck!
