Funny “Go Away” Coffee Mug

I like this “Go Away” Coffee Mug a good deal. This is a large mug. It holds 13 oz of beverage, but you would have to fill it to the very rim. Personally, that is not my habit. I tend to fill this cup with 10 oz of coffee, which is roughly the amount of liquid showing in the product picture. For me, this is a good amount of beverage. I drink slowly, so a hot drink filled all the way to the brim would get cold by the time I finished.

With durable, thick-walled glass, it feels substantial. The humorous message is on both sides so that all can see it. It would be perfect as a gift for someone who works in the public service industry, for instance. This glass is dishwasher and microwave safe.

If I were to suggest anything, it would be that the handle might be a bit more spacious so that all my fingers might fit into the handle. All in all, the “Go Away” Coffee Mug makes for a charming conversation starter.

If you want to order one for yourself or that decidedly non-morning person in your life, here is the Amazon product page.

Dulce Cocina Bamboo Coasters [6]

Dulce Cocina

Pros:
These six Dulce Cocina Bamboo Coasters arrive in a handy holder. They are attractive and inviting to use. I prefer bamboo when possible for its sustainability. The look is quite cool. If you are one who likes large drinks, these are an ample size for even a huge thermos. My favorite use for them is to set under my bamboo essential oil diffusers. They protect my tables from leaks and spills with their ample grooves and look stellar, being bamboo as well.

Cons:
The disks, being bamboo, are lightweight. They are also slippery. They could slide off a table. The surface makes me overly concerned with the way I set a glass down, lest it tips over.

Here is the Amazon product page if you are interested in getting a set of these quality bamboo coasters for yourself.

 

Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker

This Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker has a stainless steel body design. It is durable and sturdy and should be around for years. The Aicok is also BPA free.

The machine is compatible with Keurig’s 10oz coffee pods. I have been enjoying many cups now with no issue. I used to have a Keurig maker in the past, but I gave it away to a loved one. It is surprising to me how much I like having one again. It is incredibly handy! I save money often by using a reusable pod filled with coffee my family enjoys.

The size of this machine is so compact that I am toying with the idea of putting it on my desk for even more convenience. At only 8.5 x 4.9 x 9.1 inches and not even 2.5 pounds, it’s got a small enough footprint for sure for all but the tiniest desks. I still love my French press, but this is excellent for those times that only one person wants coffee. If we both do not want coffee, we generally will not make a pot, as we do not want to waste any. This way, we get coffee whenever we like regardless whether the other person is in a java mood.

The cartridge is removable and is top rack dishwasher safe, which makes it easy to keep it pristine. I would not use the sterilizer cycle to be on the safe side, however. It is a definite plus to me that most of my travel mugs fit s

The one button operation makes it simple for even the most bleary-eyed to make their morning brew. This machine has an auto-shut off and protection against overheating. It is UL certified.

The Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker has a 100% guarantee, as well as a 24-month manufacturer warranty, so there is no risk.

Kicking Horse Coffee, Ground, 10oz

 

This Kicking Horse Coffee, Dark Roast, Ground, 10 oz is the real deal. It is darker than most coffees I have had in the last several months, yet it has delightfully smooth, too. For me, that is a winning combination.

It arrives in a fold-down, resealable package. It was fresh I could tell when opening the bag. The scent was earthy AND heavenly. The taste is full-bodied. It is the perfect eye-opener for my family and me. Already ground, you are one step closer to your morning jolt of java.

Kicking Horse is Kosher and Certified Organic & Fair Trade coffee. These shade-grown Arabica beans are roasted 3,000 feet above sea level, near the Columbia River. The people behind Kicking Horse have been doing this for nearly 20 years, and it shows in this blend. I would say without qualification that it stands out proudly as one of the top three on my list of favorite tasting coffees ever. Good company!

Oskri Almond Cranberry Dark Chocolate Protein Bars – 55g – 5 Pack

81mlrgxlb2l-_sx425_

 

SIMPLY DELICIOUS!

These Almond Cranberry Dark Chocolate Protein Bars are among my family’s top three bars ever. This ranking says a lot, as we have a bar of some sort and coffee at least once a day. That is a lot of bars over the years! I appreciate that these are made in Wisconsin right here in the US.

This box has a five-count supply of healthier protein snacks which are coated with delicious dark chocolate, which is just slightly bitter. Inside there are dates, raisins, and rice syrup, but the taste is more like a nougat. It reminds me of a healthier version of a Milky Way with almonds and cranberries and dark chocolate. The texture is amazing. My daughter and I love varied textures, and this one is loaded with them. The taste pairs so well with coffee that I love my morning ritual particularly when I get to have this variety.

The protein is ample, with 16g, and the fiber content is 4g in these 55g beauties. The carb content is 25g, which is considerable. I feel good about this bar nonetheless, as it is packed with real food and quality ingredients. This is clean eating at its finest. There are companies out there that make many health claims about their products, but later the truth comes out about them. Then some products you try and the taste is something akin to tree bark. These gluten-free bars taste better than most candy bars! I highly recommend them.
