Unique Foods and Drinks Review

The Republic of Tea Almond Coconut Macaroon Tea
1. The Republic of Tea Almond Coconut Macaroon Tea- Wow, what a title! If you remember, last year, I had an awesome partnership going on with The Republic of Tea (Cuppa Cake teas review, Harvest of the Season, Iced Teas, Be Active, U Matcha). I was able to try some amazing teas from them and love them so much. My husband is a huge fan of the iced teas and we always have a big pitcher of one in our fridge all summer.

I chose this Almond Coconut Macaroon tea to try after seeing it at Whole Foods and it sounding delicious. This tea is decaf which is perfect for me since I like being able to drink tea all day long. This tea is very flavorful but I could not taste too much coconut. There is an almond flavor along with the traditional rooibos tea flavor. I enjoyed it and will be drinking this often in the evening when I want something sweet but am not actually hungry.
Paleo Meenut Butter
2. Paleo MeeNut Butter- I almost don't want to share with you how I got to trying this nut butter (but I will). I woke up in the middle of the night one night and was not able to fall back asleep for over an hour and a half. After deep breathing, praying, etc. I decided to head down to the kitchen for a small snack to hopefully help me get back to sleep (darn pregnancy insomnia). I had a piece of sprouted grain bread with this Paleo MeeNut Butter from Mee Eat Paleo and it was delicious. I never eat in the night but this time, I did and I think it helped me as I fell back asleep!!

It is made with almonds, walnuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, coconut, sea salt, flax seeds and sunflower seeds. For those who eat paleo, it is paleo approved. This nut butter is slightly lower in calories than other nut butters with 170 kcal/2 tablespoon serving. I love nut butter and go through it like crazy. This one is full of flavor and spreads on easily (not too thick). It is not 100% smooth which I liked the little unground nut pieces. I would definitely recommend this!

Henry's Humdingers Honey
3. Henry's Humdingers Honey- These products are like nothing I have tried before! They are different flavors of spicy honeys. The company contacted me to try them and I was interested as I had not had any of these before. It is made in the US and is the only raw honey from the US. It was started by Henry Miller who was only 16 years old.

They come in different flavors such as spicy red pepper and garlic, spicy pepper and ginger, chipotle chili and cinnamon and habanero and lime. I really enjoyed trying the chipotle chili and cinnamon flavor. I had my husband try it as well since it is so unique. We both agreed that we will be trying it on grilled chicken soon. I think that chipotle chili and cinnamon honey grilled chicken with grilled peaches and homegrown lettuce sounds awesome!
