Redefining what drinkware can do in your life, their new bouncy and begging-to-be-played with silicone products create more fun and versatility for your drinking habits than ever before, all the while being ridiculously simple! As the first completely safe drinkware for any user and the environment, Silipint products can go wherever you go, worry free, guaranteed!

Silicone is a miracle product in that it’s non-porous, non-toxic, contains no BPAs and can withstand temperatures from -150? F to 600? F. It’s flexible, packable and light; you can freeze it; nuke it; and throw it through the dishwasher. Plus, since our silicone products are unbreakable and reusable, our Mother Earth loves them too. Furthermore, silicone is derived from abundant, easily accessible elements (no petroleum products that need to be drilled for).

What does my family think? We love them. These glasses have become my husband’s new favorite cups! I’ll be honest – the texture at first is a little strange. However, you quickly get over it.  It is awesome that my kids can’t break these!  They actually fight over the ones we do have!  I love that they come in various sizes (16 oz, 8 oz, 9 oz, 1.5 oz) and with lids too!  I love that they are way better for the environment and that when you want to get rid of them, you can ship them back to them and they will recycle them for you!  Plus, these cups make for an excellent talking piece when people are over!

Welch‘s Filled Licorice


Frankford Candy has partnered with Welch’s to develop an innovative new licorice.  By developing Welch’s Filled Licorice, they’ve combined the bold, fruit flavors you’d expect from Welch’s with a soft, smooth licorice texture that the whole family will enjoy.  The unique jelly filling is made with real fruit juice and fruit pectin to deliver real fruit flavors. This new one-of-a-kind licorice treat is a blend of soft and chewy textures with a bold, real fruit filling.

My kids and husband absolutely loved these!  It was definitely something different but super yummy.  This is something I definitely plan on picking up for our trip to New York!  As soon as they all finished these off, they wanted to know when I was getting them more!

La Cense Beef Review and Giveaway

My family and I got to try some of the best beef we have ever had last night. We cooked up a couple of New York Strip steaks on our Foreman grill, and “awesome” is the only word I can use to describe them.  The directions said that they would cook quicker than a regular steak, and they definitely did.  What surprised me was how tender these steaks were.  Will (my 18 month old) is picky about meat.  If it has a weird texture or if it is too hard to chew, he won’t eat it.  However, he cleaned his plate off last night!

La Cense Beef is 100% grass fed, and I have to believe that is what makes these steaks so good.  Their steaks are  lower in fat and calories than conventional beef too.  It is also high in Omega-3 fatty acids (good for heart health) and low in the Omega-6 fatty acids (which can contribute to heart disease, cancers and depression).  It is also has much higher beta-carotene in it.  Lastly, La Cense Beef contains no pesticides, antibiotics or hormones.

Now, are you hungry yet?  If you are, I am giving away three prize packs of some of this awesome La Cense Beef.  Each prize pack will have 2 lbs ground steak and 2 petite sirloin steaks. Interested? Here’s what you need to do:
