Product Review

I know it is hard to believe, but I really like product reviews.

And I really, really like food product reviews!

So when Mom Central asked, "Do you want to try the new Eggo Fruit Pizzas?", how could I resist? Eggos and fruit? Suh-weet.

From the website:
There's an exciting new way to enjoy Eggo® products! New Eggo™ Real Fruit Pizza, topped with real fruit and crunchy toasted granola… they're the perfect way to shake up your breakfast routine! Ready in just a minute from your microwave. Try both tasty flavors, Strawberry Granola and Mixed Berry Granola!

I waited not so patiently for the pizzas to arrive and, of course, when they did, I was out of town. Luckily, my husband was here to get them and keep them safe for me. (They were supposed to be for me and The Boy, but you'll see why that didn't work here in a minute.)

With huge smiles and lots of anticipation, we opened the package. Then, The Boy saw the photo on the box.

"Granola?!?! Ugh." and off he went to play far away from the granola.

Now, I'm all about granola, so I stayed put. More for me!

I ate this one...

...and saved the strawberry one for later.

It. Was. So. Good.

It comes with one of those silver microwave trays and it only takes a minute to cook. It wasn't overly sweet (which is what I was worried about) and the berries didn't have that weird frozen/thawed taste. The Boy doesn't know what he is missing.

I highly recommend you fetch you some and I thank the folks at Eggo and Mom Central for letting me try them.


I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Eggo Real Fruit Pizza and received a sample of the product and a $20 Amazon gift certificate to facilitate my review.

Shut the front door!


That was the sound of the summer flying by.

And this young man flying by...

Second overall in the 5K on the 4th of July! First in his age group. Yay!

And this young man flying by...

Sadly, he didn't place, but he had a great time. Look at the concentration!

And look how lazy industrious.

I guess he wanted to spend more time watching the parade than trying to chase down candy. It worked well. People tried to see if they could actually make it into the wagon.

There isn't much whooshing here...

She loves the new windows. Barely fits in the track, but it doesn't stop her. She also loves the weather stripping. Not cool.

I would say summer is winding down, but we still have another five weeks to go.

Both of the boys are at camp this week. The oldest is one of the adventure counselors at church camp and is loving it. He is going on his second trip to The Boundary Waters. Poor kid. He's only gotten to go parachuting in Georgia, rock climbing and rapelling in South Dakota, scuba diving in Iowa and canoeing in Minnesota this summer. He's probably bored to death.

I applied for a full time job as a marketing assistant, but I haven't heard anything. They wanted someone to do A and some bcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz. Well, I have had experience with bcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz, but not so much with A. I guess I'll just continue being a slackass. (Love that job.)

In other news...

read her books. Or else.

Actual conversation with my son

Me - Why don't you run downstairs and get us an ice cream sandwich?

Loving child - Why don't we just have an apple?

He ruins everything.
