Softer Than Brittle Review and Reader Giveaway

I’ll be honest. I have never been a big fan of old-fashioned peanut brittle. When I was a kid, peanut brittle was a BIG tradition in our family, particularly around the holidays, but not something that I ever cared for. (Which I never would have wanted to admit to my Grandma – who usually made the brittle.) Do you know what I AM a big fan of? Softer Than Brittle!

Softer Than Brittle is a unique, soft and flaky gourmet nut brittle hand-crafted from a 60-year-old family recipe. It is a “better-for-you-brittle” in that it contains no preservatives, cholesterol, dairy, or hydrogenated oil. It’s even vegan!  Not only is Softer Than Brittle super delicious, soft and flakey, it also features a clean label with just 6 or 7 basic ingredients. Easy to understand – easy to know what you’re eating.

This gourmet, nut snack is made in small batches in a copper kettle. I’m not quite sure what that kettle being made of copper adds to the process, but I have a feeling it is something good because the end result is so delicious.

Softer Than Brittle is available in four varieties: Peanut, Almond, Cashew and Pecan. While I have tried and like them all, I really love the Almond flavor. It is SO yummy!

I have been enjoying Softer Than Brittle as an afternoon snack to tide me offer between lunch and dinner, but it could be used for so many other occasions including as an office treat, taking on road trips (the resealable pouches make it perfect for that), after school snacks and more. When will YOU eat Softer Than Brittle?

Reader Giveaway: One lucky Chic ‘n Savvy reader will win a prize pack of all 4 varieties of Softer Than Brittle: Peanut, Almond, Cashew and Pecan. To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 4/16/18. Good luck!

When my kids were little, there were days I hardly sat down! I longed for the days when they were older when I cold get a little rest. Well, guess what?

How To Easily Find And Eliminate Drafts In Your Home + Reader Giveaway

When you rent your home, you typically have a maintenance man who does the handy work on your property. If you own your own home, YOU are the handy man! When the utility bill seems higher than it should be, it can be tricky to pinpoint the cause.

How To Easily Find And Eliminate Drafts In Your Home

If you live in a cold climate like I do, this can be due to keeping your home warm when the temperatures outside dip down. Or is it? When I noticed cold spots in my home, I knew it was one of two reasons. Either I had ghosts in my house or drafts! If you have a ghost, you need to call Ghostbusters! If you have a draft, you have to detect where it is coming from.

 

Most folks would hire a contractor to do an energy efficiency audit. This can cost upwards of $300 to $500. I can think of so many other things to do with that kind of money! Like a vacation or that new bedroom set I have my eye on! Also, a contractor comes when he has a spot in his schedule, which may not fit into yours. A more convenient and cost efficient solution is BlindSpotz™.

How To Easily Find And Eliminate Drafts In Your Home 2

I LOVE this DIY home efficiency testing option for my home. BlindSpotz is simple to use, affordable and the results are easy to see and almost immediate! BlindSpotz™ are removable home sensors that can detect, diagnose and fix cold spots in your home. Some of the areas to use the BlindSpotz that probably come to mind are your windows and doors.

How To Easily Find And Eliminate Drafts In Your Home 6

What about those areas that are not as common? These include electrical outlets, crawl spaces and attics, cabinets and closets. When you apply the BlindSpotz, the temperature is recorded. As more colors appear on the removable sensor, the bigger the cold issue. If you see 50˚ F or 55˚ F, you have a serious cold issue that needs to be fixed ASAP.

Next, you take photos of the sensors that record those low, low temperatures. Then you send the photos to the folks at BlindSpotz. They will supply your with a variety of solutions to fix your energy problems. You will also receive a coupon to use at participating retailers and contractors. See how to use the BlindSpotz here:

Isn’t that easy? Be sure to follow BlindSpotz on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. Order your BlindSpotz HERE!

Reader Giveaway: How would you like to use the BlindSpotz system for your home? We are giving away 3 packages of BlindSpotz to 3 different winners. (Please note if you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again.) To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 3/1/18. Good luck!
