Brew Over Ice Review

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out Brew Over Ice K-Cups for the Keurig coffee system. We drink a lot of coffee, but during the summer it is nice to have something refreshing, and yet still to my likes. I preferred the French Vanilla, and wife liked the Sweet Raspberry Black Tea. I am trying to find the Sweet Lemon Black Tea locally so I can try it.

Making the Brew Over Ice Iced Teas was easier than my usual way of making iced tea in a pitcher and leaving it in the fridge for a while.

The best compliment to the Brew Over Ice varieties was the tumbler. The tumbler actually seemed to stay colder than any of the cups I would have normally used.

Making a cup of one of these is just as easy as making a standard cup of coffee, or tea.

· Fill a 16-oz. plastic cup with ice and place it under a Keurig Brewer

· Choose the 6-oz.or 8-oz. button

· Brew directly over ice

· The ice does the rest — stir and enjoy!

Knowing that the French Vanilla Iced Coffee was only 2 calories made me even happier. I can at least keep an eye on what I am drinking, and this will help keep my wife in line with worrying about my weight.

If you are a coffee/tea person, and enjoy the outside as much as we do then I would recommend you try out the Brew Over Ice items. These are excellent, and easy to make.

 

Revv And Revv Pulse K-Cup Review

Being big coffee drinkers we are constantly looking for “The Better” cup of coffee.  Recently we were offered to try out the NEW Revv K-Cup, and the Revv Pulse K-Cup.  These are for the Keurig coffee machines in case you were curious.

A straight shot of stimulation. Raw energy in its purest form. revv packs more rich, smooth coffee into every K-Cup, so you can super-charge your day, without extra sugar or calories. Take a bold move forward. Launch into life with revv. More Coffee. More Kick.

The first one was a very strong cup of coffee.  I found that this was a good “Wake-Up” coffee.  The wife found this coffee to be very good, and it also reduced the amount of cups of coffee that she wanted.  My neighbor “B” found the coffee to be perfect, and his coffee desires are very specific.  The Revv Pulse has Ginseng, and Guarana added to the mix.  I would definitelly drink Revv again if I had it, and maybe even look for it in stores so I can purchase it.

Nature’s original energy drink just got turbo charged. revv Pulse boosts alertness without compromising on taste. Ginseng and Guarana are natural additions to revv’s high-performance power.

You can get either the Revv, or the Revv Pulse by visiting the Green Mountain Coffee site.  The product costs $13.95 for a 22 count box.

We were sent a sample pack of the two coffees, as to review the product.  Receiving the product had no influence on our review.

Bake Me A Wish Cake Review

Today UPS delivered me a package marked Perishable.  I immediatelly took it inside, and opened it.  It was a cake from Bake-Me-A-Wish.  I immediatelly noticed that the box was well insulated with packaging, and a gel pack.

Upon opening the package you find a well boxed cake that is sealed in plastic.  The cake can be stored frozen for up to 2 months, or 5 days refrigerated.  There is also a card included.

We cut 2 pieces out of the cake because my wife is on a strict diet until Monday, and can’t deviate.  My daughter, and I each ate a piece.  Both of us enjoyed the cake a lot.  The only comment my daughter had was that it seemed a bit small.

There are numerous different cakes that you can choose from…

  • Cookies & Cream Cake
  • Boston Creak Cake
  • S’More Brownie Cake
  • Chocolate Mousse Torte Cake
  • Tiramisu Classico Cake
  • Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake
  • Strawberry Shortcake

  • Red Velvet Chocolate Cake

You can additionally have Imported Belgian Chocolate Plaquess created by Stephan Leroux put on your cake.

The cakes are fully Kosher.
