The Cajun one is delicious! The flavor is great, and they’re easy to cook. The texture is one of the best I’ve had for meat alternatives, so if you want something very similar to meat, try this out. I look forward to trying the other flavors.
This was my first introduction to makgeolli, and I liked it! I bought it at a local Asian grocery store and took the employee’s advice to get the Original to try first. It has a nice fizz, but I took a star off because it was a little sweet for me. I don’t know if makgeolli is ever mixed with other things, but I don’t love to drink sweet alcohols unless they’re mixed in cocktails. I saw that the brand has a Lite version with less sugar though, which I would love to try next.
Beautiful packaging and unique scents. But for me, the candles are just okay for me because the throw isn’t very good. Some scent blends have a better throw than others, but you can’t predict it until you burn them.
I love this stuff. Whatever botanicals and plant extracts they’re using make these a great alternative to traditional soda. I hate diet sodas that use sweeteners like stevia or aspartame because they taste very fake to me. While Olipop does not taste like a normal soda with like 30g of sugar, I really like the subtle sweetness and flavoring. I’ve tried nearly all of their flavors, and you can find a couple flavors pretty easily in most major grocery stores. I’ve found greater selections in smaller specialty stores and in Whole Foods. The price is decent if you want to give it a shot, and they go on sale at WF sometimes.
Beautiful packaging, great idea, but the taste is just okay. I got the masala chai concentrate and thought the flavor was not spiced enough. Especially for the price, I was hoping for a better taste. If you can, go to a local Indian grocery store and get one of the chair powders - way better result.
The look is really nice, and I appreciate the company’s ethical practices. I have a pair of Campos sneakers, and they’ve become my everyday shoe. I also get a decent amount of compliments considering they’re just white sneakers. If you’re looking for a more ethical/sustainable shoe, this is a good option, especially since they’re fairly easy to find at major retailers. I got mine at REI, and they were actually eligible for a sale at the time.
The insole is fine but not that comfortable. I switched mine out within a couple months for something with more arch support. Also, definitely unlace your shoes before putting them on/taking them off - at least with the Campo shoe. The leather was kinda stiff and took some more effort to unlace than a typical shoe with synthetic materials or one with metal around the holes that facilitate movement/glide, so I got tired of unlacing them. But me slipping them on and off without unlacing them kept bending the back and some small holes in the fabric appeared within the first 2 months of me wearing them.
Worth it (and honestly, they’re priced pretty well for such well-made shoes). My Arizonas lasted for maybe 5-6 years before the soles needed replacing. Super comfortable and durable, the leather is nice (but try to avoid getting caught in rainstorms like I have - it’s not good for the leather and cork lol). I love that you can replace different parts of the shoes pretty easily too, which improves the sustainability of the product (and is more cost-effective in the long run). They take a little time to mold to your feet, but you can wear socks with them around the house to break them in.
So high quality! I avoid wearing my non-Knickey underwear because the comparison between the cotton they use versus other brands is so drastic. The cotton from my Aerie, Victoria’s Secret, Hanes, etc. underwear is much thinner and wears way more quickly than my Knickey underwear. You will get VPL just because you can’t do seamless with cotton, but I would recommend sticking with the things if that’s a concern. My favorite are probably the mid-rise ones, and the bralette has such a nice thick band (while not being longline) that stays put. Also love the simple, easy to recycle packaging, as well as the ability to recycle my old underwear (with reward points too).
The high-rise brief cuts into my skin a bit much around the leg openings and creates a weird bulge (not uncomfortable though!), but I think this could be improved with a different placement. Also, I keep falling out of the bralette when I bend over, but I think this is my anatomy. I was hoping things would be different since it isn’t a true triangle bralette and the fabric comes up a bit, but warning to my ladies who have this issue - this probably will still be the case here.
The fabrics feel nice (I’ve tried the silky mesh, universal, and re:play), but I think there are sizing and fit issues for the underwear and bralettes. Otherwise I love that they use compostable packaging (remember to remove the stickers though!) and their affordability. I am slightly suspicious of how much they stick to their mission/green-washing/ethics with the amount of SKUs they have and the frequency of deep discounts when their products are already decently priced.
The bralettes (scoop, triangle, plunge) in M all have larger band sizes than I would expect if they were “true to size”. They all ride up on the tightest settings, and I wear mediums for everything. And it’s been like this since day 1. I tried one triangle bralette in silky mesh in the +1 size which fits way more secure in the band, but I don’t love how the neckline fits. Compared to the others, the seams are a bit tighter so it cuts in a bit. The scoop bralette in silky mesh is way too long in the straps - I’ve tightened them all the way but they are still too long. The underwear is nice, but you might want to stick to ones with seams like the silky mesh ones. The seamless universal hip huggers ride up, and the thing version band twists pretty easily.
Really good sparkling water, and I love that they use actual juice for flavoring. It makes the taste much better than other sparkling waters.
