Product Review: Peeled Snacks



*REVIEW TIME!!!*




About our snacks


Our goal at Peeled Snacks is simple: to make you feel good about snacking. We strive to bring you the highest quality organic and natural ingredients from sustainable farms. Our snacks provide a great source of vitamins, minerals and a full serving of fruit with no added sugar. Learn more about our Real Food Philosophy.
 At Peeled Snacks we know that food starts out delicious and nutritious, and it doesn't need some machine to improve it, or an engineer to perfect it. We strive to bring you natural, premium ingredients so you can feel good about snacking. We believe a healthy diet includes a balanced mixture of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates to help you stay fit and active. Eating well doesn't have to mean eating tasteless, bland foods. It does, however, mean eating a healthy, wide range of foods from every food group.
 We want to make snacking easy and enjoyable whether you're at home or on the go. We know that staying fit and maintaining a healthy diet can often be a challenge when you need a snack in a hurry. Available snacking options are usually loaded with high fructose corn syrup and sugar. Often finding a tasty alternative to satisfy the munchies can be a challenge. At Peeled Snacks, we use the highest quality fruit without any added sugar to help you towards achieving the five-a-day servings of fruit you need. Peeled Snacks are loaded with a natural source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber that your body craves.
 We are dedicated to raising awareness through various educational campaigns; our goal is to inform consumers about the impacts of daily dietary choices. Recently, we've partnered with the American Diabetes Association to help families make the best decisions possible about the food they consume. Today Americans face the risk of diabetes and obesity on an alarming scale, due in large part to irresponsible practices of the food industry. At Peeled Snacks, we promote healthy eating habits as well as strive to use the most environmentally sustainable business practices. We source organic ingredients whenever possible. When organic ingredients aren't readily available, we buy from local farmers and growers. For our product display cases, we use recycled paper. Plus within our daily business operations, we are committed to recycling and minimizing the use of paper. Through our work with Net Impact, we're partnered with hundreds of other companies all dedicated to making sustainable, socially responsible businesses the new standard for the American marketplace.
 We are dedicated to raising awareness about what it means to ‘be healthy' and we strive to help you meet your goals by making real tasty snacks you can enjoy!
Real food, real apeel!

Our Review:

First of all, we would like to thank Peeled Snacks for giving us the opportunity to do this review on our blog.

I have to say that we were very excited to be doing a review for Peeled Snacks. I am the only one in my house who has ever loved dried fruit! So, I must say that I was pretty supprised when my daughter was into it as much as she was. She even asked to take some as a snack to school. We really enjoyed the fact that it taste great, it's healthy, organic and has no added sugars or oils. They have a variety of different fruits to fulfill the taste buds of many in your house hold. The texture of the peeled snacks is dried but not hard and crunchy like most dried fruits. It has a moist texture making it pleasant for enjoyment for people of all ages. It is conviently packaged to go and is ideal for a healthy travel snack. If you like the fruit then you will like the peeled version of the fruit because there is nothing artificial about it. And guess what?! These wonderful snacks are now available in Starbucks throughout the US and Canada. How awsome is that!

Here's a few pics I took. Enjoy!


DISCLAIMER: I WAS NOT CONPENSATED IN ANYWAY FOR THIS REVIEW. HOWEVER, I DID RECIEVE A SAMPLE OF PEELED SNACKS TO REVIEW AN  HONEST OPINION ON MY BLOG.

April Hair Carnival: Copy Cat Style


For this month’s Hair Carnival I'm excited to say that I joined up with some great bloggers and we paired up and recreated styles from one another. I had the opportunity to be paired up with a great blog Charlotte's Avenue and decided to do our own rendition on two of their different styles.   



Click for original Braided Bun
I was shocked when Yaya request this style two days in a row. In the top pic she wore it in the middle and in the second pic she wore it on the side. She normally gives me issues when I do a bun on her hair, but she really liked this one because it had a different twist to it. Speaking of twist, we did twist her hair instead of braiding because her hair is thin so twisting it made it look fuller.

Click for original Banana Clip w/ Braided Pompadour.
On this style we didn't have too much time, but since Yaya has bangs we left them out and I didn't realize until after that the pompadour was a little too small. Next time we'll make the pompadour a little bigger. She really enjoyed this style!






Make sure you take a look at all the other styles the rest of the bloggers have done!

Random Hairstyle

So, I was playing with Yaya's hair the other night after she washed it. I didn't know what I was going for with here hair, but I added a little bit of ors moisturizing lotion and hair pudding. I ended up parting her hair down the middle and did a couple of zigzag lines although they came out a little uneven because she kept on moving, but she ended up with eight braids, lol.





I just braided them up together for the night still unsure of what it was going to come out like. The next morning, Yaya decided that she wasn't feeling the eight braids I did on her, lol. I kinda figured she wouldn't, lol. So, I fixed them and made it into four instead. She wanted a braidout so that's what she got and I think it came out pretty nice. The pics aren't too good, but it ended up kinda like a nice little fohawk.




Happy Girl! :)

Yaya's Lunchbox: Coconut Chicken Salad

I told Yaya about a week ago that I would make her a nice salad for her to take to school for lunch. Well, I made some really good Coconut Chicken the other day that I got off of pinterest and she requested that I add the leftover chicken to her salad. Which by the way that Coconut Chicken is soo good you need to try it!


Ceasar Croutons, Roasted Garlic Almonds, Shredded Cheese and Red Wine Vinaigrette Dressing!


Dasani Water, Chooped up Lettuce, Coconut Chicken, Sliced Kiwi and a few leftover sour jelly beans.

French Fishtail Braid

I've done fishtail braids before, but my niece wanted one and her hair was straight and silky so I figured I'd try my hand at doing a french fishtail instead of just a ponytail with a fishtail. So, with no product in her hair here's my first time trying out a french fishtail braid. I like it for my first time!


What do you think for my first time?! :o)
