March 2019 Product Review Favorites + Kodiak Cakes Giveaway

A review of Grillo's Pickles, Kodiak Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix and Bunch banana ice cream!
Grillo's Pickles

Grillo's Pickles

Grillo's Pickles are the best, best, best pickles! Backstory- Troy and I have been watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and they keep eating at a diner with delicious looking deli pickles. As you know, pregnant women notoriously love pickles and I am no exception. When I see them with these pickles, I have been craving them like crazy but didn't have any good deli ones. I couldn't get them out of my mind.

I was sent some Grillo's Pickles to review and they are my favorite. I love the Italian dill spears and chips and the hot Italian dill spears and chips. They are so, so good! Super crispy and they have the perfect flavor. They have fresh dill and garlic in there and are totally addicting. I served the hot dill chips and bread and butter chips with BBQ chicken sandwiches at our gender reveal and they were the hit of the party. My whole family loved them. Highly recommend!

Kodiak Cakes Waffle and Flapjack Mix

Kodiak Cakes sells my absolute favorite waffle and flapjack mix. I have tried several other brands and nothing compares at all. All you have to do is add water and they are so delicious. We like making waffles just as much as pancakes with the mixes. I buy mine on Amazon because they seem to be a little cheaper there but they can also be found in stores all over.

They are whole-grain and protein packed with about 14 grams of protein per serving. I like all of the varieties and like adding mashed sweet potato or butternut squash for extra nutrition sometimes. The mix is awesome for meal prep and the pancakes especially reheat really well through the week. Kodiak Cakes is the best tasting pancake and waffle mix on the market that I've tried and I would highly recommend it for its great flavor and nutrition profile.

Bunch Banana Ice Cream

Bunch Banana Ice Cream

I absolutely love banana based ice creams because they are super creamy and healthy. I love fruity flavors and have always been a fan of making my own. When Bunch ice cream contacted me to try their banana ice cream, I was excited to do so because I've never seen a store-bought banana based ice cream before. They have awesome flavors such as peanut butter fudge, coffee chocolate chunk, deep dark chocolate and cinnamon swirl.

My favorite flavor was the deep dark chocolate which surprised me because chocolate is typically not my favorite. They are made with bananas instead of dairy so it is naturally dairy-free. They use sweeteners including honey and maple syrup instead of refined sugar. The banana ice cream is rich and creamy and super tasty. The ingredients are so simple too. The chocolate one for example has bananas, coconut milk, 100% chocolate, almond butter, maple syrup, honey, cornstarch, vanilla extract and guar gum. They can be ordered online nationwide.
