Il Morso Coffee Bites Review

Welcome to A Sampling Bee! Today, I share with you Il Morso Coffee Bites! Il Morso Coffee Bites are bite-sized coffee bites that contain an organic energy boost, similar to a cup of espresso. Il Morso Coffee Bites are carefully crafted on Treasure Island, San Francisco. "Il Morso is the coffee shortcut."

Il Morso Coffee Bites are organic and made with fair trade ingredients such as cocoa butter, espresso beans and whole cane sugar. You will not find any extracts in these yummy bites. Just 3-5 simple ingredients per recipe. Each Coffee bite contains 15-25 calories, 1.5 grams of fat and 1 gram of sugar. The caffeine level is clearly labeled on the front of each Morso. Indulge in an energy boosting treat that low in sugar and tastes delicious!

Il Morso Coffee Bites are available in 4 flavors:

Coffee & Cream
Matcha Green Tea

My Thoughts

Il Morso Coffee Bites melt in your mouth. They taste just like a cup of coffee from your favorite coffee shop. But they don't taste burnt or aren't loaded with tons sugar. There is nothing artificial in them and you can tell. The quality of Il Morso Coffee Bites exceeded my expectations and I love taking them with me wherever I go. It's a lot easier to carry an Il Morso Bite that a hot coffee, especially with two kiddos at your side. To me, nothing is better than coffee & chocolate. My favorite flavor is the Coffee & Cream. So yummy!

I received Il Morso Coffee Bites in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, always!

SHOP || $25
(When buying, please note that you get 16 bites per box. Bites are about the size of a half dollar.)

My Thoughts

I am all about bean chips lately and Beanitos fit the bill. They are crunchy, delicious and so flavorful. I enjoy dipping my Beanitos in salsa or guacamole. Even hummus! Yum yum! My favorite flavor, out of the 8 I got to try, is the Hint of Lime White Bean Chips. The hint of lime really gives the chips a nice flavor. My sons enjoy eating the Mac N' Cheese Crunch. They like those because they remind them of Cheetos. I'd much rather have them eat these, because they are a lot healthier! Beanitos have now become one of my families favorite chips. I highly recommend them all!

My Thoughts

We are in LOVE with this Lego® Bags Backpack! I am so amazed by the quality. The backpack is made from sturdy materials and I know that it'll last my kindergartener all school year. They are guaranteed, by Lego Bag, that they will last all year and then some! I love all of its features, including the mesh pocket on the side and the zipper compartments in the front. The main compartment opens up and allows me to put all of the school supplies that my son needs, plus a lunch bag and a small jacket. I know that he feels comfortable wearing the backpack because of all of the padding on the backside. The material is easy to wipe clean with a dampened cloth. Hang to dry. It is not recommended washing the backpack in the washing machine.

The backpack looks just like a Lego. And, if your kids are like mine, they are obsessed with the toy! My oldest son is super excited to use it. I am too, for times when I don't feel like carrying a heavy purse. A backpack is great for taking to events- such as fairs, carnivals & concert. So much more easier to carry around. A very versatile backpack that will be used over and over again! This Lego backpack is our favorite!

Lego® Bags has a wide range of backpack styles to choose from. Ninjago backpacks, Lego® City, Lego® Friends, etc. There are also lunch bags, storage bags and accessories available. Visit for more information and to shop!

The Lego backpack was sent to me for review. All opinions are my own. Always!

Jarro Formulas Jarro-Dophilus Women's Probiotic Review

Welcome to A Sampling Bee! Today, I share with you Jarro-Dophilus Probiotics for women! Jarro Formulas was founded in Los Angeles in 1977 by Jarrow L. Rogovin. Jarro's early formulations earned the company a reputation for producing innovative and efficacious supplements at a time when the health benefits of dietary supplements were just beginning to be recognized. Jarro Formulas' has a complete line of nutritional products including vitamins, probiotic, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, enteral nutrition products and standardized herbal concentrates. Jarro Fomulas' mission is reflected in it motto- "Superior Nutrition and Formulation".

Jarro-Dophilus Women's Probiotics is true probiotic for women because it uniquely contains four patented probiotic strains. These strains are know as "Astarte". All four of the Astarte strains were isolated in clinical research from young women, healthy women in their third month of pregnancy and are the predominant species found in the vaginal tract of healthy women.

Jarro-Dophilus is the only women's multi-strain probiotic comprised solely of vaginally-derived strains vs. intestinally or non-human derived strains. Multiple clinical studies have shown that oral supplements with Astarte strains promotes healthy vaginal, urinary and reproductive tracts.
EnteroGuard® is Jarrow Formulas’ proprietary cellulose-based, food- grade, pH-sensitive enteric coating that resists stomach acid. EnteroGuard® ensures that probiotics pass through the stomach unharmed and are released in the intestines intact and ready to act.

My Thoughts 

Jarro-Dophilus Probiotics are working wonderful for me. The capsules are a good size and easy to swallow. Tasteless, too.  I have been taking one capsule a day for about 3 weeks now. My tummy feels more regular and my body just feel better when I take Jarro-Dophilus. I've tried a few different probiotics in the past and this one is by far the best. I love the fact that these probiotics are not only good for my digestive system. They are also good for my urinary tract and good for vaginal health. I highly recommend Jarro-Dophilus Probiotics. And, my boys love the kid's probiotics! Jarro Formulas products are great for the whole family!
