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? They are teenagers now and I am busier than ever! I love it, honestly I do! But there are days I have so much running around to do that I can let dinner slip past me. Ugh!

On days as hectic as that, I may not have a made-from-scratch meal, but I have the next best thing! I discovered that the Tai Pei entrees are perfect for busy families like mine. Who would have thought you could get this much delicious goodness in one container?!

Oh Tai Pei, how do I love thee? There are so many reasons! Just because I am busy does not mean I want to skimp on quality when it comes to our meals. The Tai Pei Asian Food entrees are made with real, pure ingredients, which is important to me. What you won’t find are any preservatives or artificial ingredients.

I got a variety of the line to try out, and I love it! I have eaten their goodies for a few years now, and I am a huge fan. I had never had the peach and watermelon rings, so those were a nice treat. The flavors are amazing, and they truly are delicious!
Here is a list of their line of sweets: 
  • Jelly Beans
  • Gummy Bears
  • Gummy Worms
  • Sour Berry Bears
  • Sour Worms
  • Fruity Bears
  • Peach Rings

Surf Sweets I think this is a great way for your kids and family to enjoy the sweetness of life and not have to worry about allergens, and enjoy an organic treat. They are gluten free and vegan friendly. One year we bought them to hand out to the kids at Halloween, it was a lot of fun. We made goodie bags with them in it!  I highly recommend these to anyone who loves sweets and if you have allergens I highly recommend them!

Fit Snack Box: Healthiest Products On The Market – Try Them Today!

Fit Snack Box If you follow my site you know I get a Fit Snack Box each month, and I come on here and share some pictures of all the goodies that are in the box for the month! As you can see this month had quite a few awesome products inside! From drinks to granola and bars and more, it was packed full of goodies! 

Fit SnackMy favorite thing so far out of the box are these Power O’s from Love Grown Foods! They had a nice light honey flavor to them, which was so delicious! I wish I had a full size box, cause I would be eating these for breakfast everyday! But that is the beauty of the Fit Snack Box. You get a sample size most of the time, so you can try the product and if you like it, you know you can go buy a full size product and you won’t waste it!

I have come across some new favorites that were in my monthly boxes, and some items that were not to my liking and I knew I would never purchase them! So it has saved us a lot of money on not going out and buying full size products in the stores because we think we might like it and get disappointed and we are out the money! That is the top most favorite reason why I love subscription boxes like this!

Fit Snack

Each box also contains little cards with all the items that are in the box, and about them! Then on the back there is an exercise card with ways to work out, along with tips and such. Then you normally have 1-2 other cards in there with a recipe or information or a special promotion on a product or something! It is a really nice box, and it is always full of great products to try out. Each box is packed full of the healthiest products on the market to help fuel your body!

Check Out This Months Fit Snack Box – Packed Full of Healthy Snacks!

I received this Fit Snack Box as a promotional item. This is not a sponsored review. All opinions are 100% my own.

FitSnackYAY this is one of my favorite times of the month, my latest Fit Snack box arrived, it always is fun to open it up and see all the delicious items that will be packed inside! Each month I get a Fit Snack box delivered at my door step, it is packed with healthy snacks for me and Adam to try out! This is great for those who like trying new things that are healthy!

Fit Snack

This month it had a nice variety of products. From Skinny Pop Popcorn, Almond Butter, Peanuts, Flax Granola and much more. This month they had a few full-size products, and normally you don’t always have that, so it was a nice bonus to see that.

Flax Granola

One of the full size items is this handmade Fruit and Berry Flax Seed Granola, it is grain free, and contains no GMO’s. I found that this had a very earthy flavor to it, I personally didn’t love it but it wasn’t too bad. I think if you are a fan of flax seed then you would probably really love this.


These Level bars are something my husband loves to have on hand. He is a type 2 diabetic, so having a low carb snack is something that is vital for him. These bars are low carbs but have a nice amount of protein in them, which is great at keeping him full. These are the double chocolately chip bars, they are tasty! He has tried other flavors of these bars in the past, and it is worth getting if you want low carbs!

Fit Snack

This is a great way to try out new products and find things you absolutely love to add to your daily menu! Or you might come across things you didn’t really love but the great thing about this box, is you try something and if you don’t like it, you had a sample size, so you didn’t have to buy a full price box of them to see if you would like them.

How do they select what goes in a Fit Snack box?

  • Each product always containing two or more of the following:
    GMO Free, High in protein, low in sugar, gluten free, organic, raw, vegan and all natural.
  • Plus, they add in bonus items such as energy boosters, nutritional supplements, or refreshing beverages.
  • Finally, they find a little space for exclusive workouts, workout gear or other active lifestyle inspiration.
