One box makes a ton of food. The product itself is quite aromatic, but misleadingly bland. The Tarka is key! I'm more excited about the Tarka than the Kitchari and I can't wait to put it on vegetables. I probably would not order this product online, but I would buy it off the shelf to keep on hand for something a little different from my normal dinners.
I tried the Cinnamon Apple and the Thai Coconut. I liked the Cinnamon Apple a lot, it would be a great alternative to oats for breakfast every now and then. The Thai Coconut I found extremely brand. Aside from a couple of extremely flavorful bites, it was overwhelmingly bland and didn't really hit the notes described on the package. From a portion standpoint, I think it's good as a breakfast size, but for lunch or dinner you'd either need to supplement with other food or eat it as a side. I would not buy these again. At $5 per portion, it's expensive for what it is and I didn't like them enough to justify that price point. When it comes down to $3, we can talk about buying more of those Cinnamon Apple ones for breakfast. Edit: I have now tried the Mexican Chile version and that one was my favorite of the three, but I still don't plan to purchase again at $5.
I've had my paper wallet for almost 3 years. The durability of a paper wallet is impressive. I have been using the microwallet, the tiny size is perfect for me and has enough space for what I need to carry (Driver's License, Medical Card, a couple of credit cards, a little cash). They work with artists, the result is quality, fun designs, and new designs that are updated often.
This hits the sweet spot of spicy, sour, sweet, salty. I really like the texture of the fruit as well (have only tried the Spicy Mango). It's a little pricey and not as healthy as you'd have to believe because it's still dried fruit which can be a calorie bomb. I would buy it again as a nice, once in a while, healthier treat that something else I might choose to satisfy my sweet tooth but it's not something I'd buy every week at the store.
I bought a pair of Prio after some foot troubles I thought may be related to my running shoes. I am not and have never been a barefoot runner or used any similar footwear. That transition was an extremely odd experience. I can't compare Xero to other shoes or brands meant for barefoot running, but compared to the Asics Kayano that I normally wear, they seem to be just as sturdy and durable. I don't wear use them as often as I did when I first purchased them because I do prefer a cushioned shoe, but in terms of customer service, style, my experience, and brand reputation, if I did want to buy another pair of barefoot shoes I would shop with Xero first.
I do not have words to express how much I hate the fit of their Classic Fit bikini. They are not suitable for any type of activity, I constantly have underwear up my butt. I can say two positive things: (1) I really like the shade of green they use and (2) the construction and materials are pretty solid. However, given my experience with this underwear I will never try another product of theirs.
I workout a lot, a combination of running and weightlifting, and I was super frustrated with my underwear riding up so I tested a bunch of brands and styles and Tomboy X Iconic Briefs have become my go to style. They are the only brand and style I have found that lets me do my thing without having to worry about my underwear. I won't mention other brands, I have tried a few others that also don't ride up, but are much poorer quality and riddled with holes and falling apart, which my Tomboy X ones are not. I also tried their Tencel Bikini, and they're a better fit and style for more everyday wear, but not for working out. I like that they regularly introduce new prints and colors and just seem fun overall.
I've tried all four flavors and hands down the Churro is my favorite, followed by the Chile Turmeric. Mexican Lime absolutely is not for me and I could take Smoky Chipotle or leave it. To me, these are as satisfying as a chip with a little less guilt due to the protein and fiber content. Obviously, they're tasty too, or I wouldn't be bothering with them over and over again. Shipping is fast and friendly, and this is a brand that seems to be doing something positive, so I feel good about supporting them.
If microwave popcorn is your thing and you want a high quality, more interesting microwave popcorn than Orville Redenbacher's, this is probably a 5 star product. As the 3 half eaten bags of popcorn that have been in my refrigerator for the last year can attest to, microwave popcorn is not so much my thing. First, no need to buy their bowl. You can get the same bowl for much cheaper on Amazon. Second, this popcorn is expensive. Yes, the flavors are interesting and it's high quality popcorn, but I don't feel like it's that much better to justify the price. I've tried Maui Heat, Cinnalicious, and Vanilla Cake Pop. I could flip a coin on whether I like Cinnalicious or Vanilla Cake Pop most. The thing I like most about this product is they way it smells when it's being microwaved. It sure beats the regular microwave popcorn smell. I also like that I can manage my own portion, since I choose the amount to put into the bowl (unlike a normal bagged microwave popcorn).
This brand has become a daily accessory for me. I've tried Cherry, Grape, Watermelon, Strawberry, and Tangerine. I liked them all, Tangerine is my favorite, followed by Strawberry. I would only compare them to mints in size and format, otherwise the are nothing like mints. They're little flavor bombs that make my mouth water and my tongue tingle. They're tasty, fun, and guilt free. My first order arrived within days, my second order was delayed over a month due to product availability. I will order again despite that, I am not familiar with any similar products and I need them now.
