TheraBreath Review and Giveaway

I have really dry mouth in the mornings and I have bad breath.  TheraBreath let me try their Products to see if they can help me and I would do a Honest Review in exchange.  What a great deal!

About TheraBreath

TheraBreath was created by Doctor Harold Katz while at California Breath Clinics.  Since 1994 when it was put on the market its helped "over 1,000,000 people world wide to solve the problems of bad breath and unpleasant mouth taste."* .  

The products I tried.are their best sellers: original toothpaste and mouthwash  and their new lozenges.  

First off I tried the Original Toothpaste.  Right off I noticed it was nothing like the average toothpaste on the market.  It bubbles as you brush.  My breath seemed a lot fresher right away. One thing I really love about this is it wasn't overly sweetened and didn't hurt my teeth.  They use aloe in the toothpaste which is really unique.  It's recommended to be used twice a day.  

Quoted from TheraBreath webpage. 
"Brush with this toothpaste twice a day and you will stop bad breath, guaranteed! This formula is also great for gum health and nothing is more powerful at fighting cavities. Therabreath Toothpaste is designed to control the anaerobic bacteria that causes bad breath. Buy it today, use it regularly, and you'll breathe easier and smile more often."

Next I tried the Mouth Wash and also realized it was very different but in a good way.  It feels like drinking aloe.  It too is not overly sweet and has not stinging side effect.  That is a real good plus in my book.  I like my sweets sweet but not my mouth wash or toothpaste.  Its real smooth and gets the job done without you feeling as if your mouth was on fire.  Another great product in my opinion.

Quoted from TheraBreath (about the mouthwash) "Stop your bad breath and end chronic halitosis by using TheraBreath Oral Rinse after brushing with TheraBreath Toothpaste. This amazing rinse uses the odor-obliterating power of OXYD-8 for treating bad breath, stopping halitosis and eliminating sour, bitter and metallic tastes in your mouth."

Third I tried the BreathMints (Mandarin Mint flavored.).  I want to say something right off the bat with these.  They are awesome to keep on you when you can not brush your teeth every few seconds or need a mint.  I was amazed when I used these and had fresh breath for a long time (hours) later.

Quoted * "Our unique Lozenges are unlike any breath mint you have ever tried. They work in three distinct stages to make sure your mouth isfresh, moist, and healthy. This three stage approach is not only unique, but incredibly effective at controlling dry mouth and bad breath odor. Try our Lozenges - we guarantee you have never experienced a mint like this!"

Alll these products use aloe which I have known for sometime helps control odors.  They contain no sodium lauryl sulfate.  Great flavors and they seem to really work.

Availability? Most drugstore or even on their site! Currently they are having some good deals.  

Amazing facts about many mouth diseases and problems! Its really interesting

Country Bob's Review

Country Bob's sent us a couple of bottles of their all purpose sauce to review and they told me I can do a giveaway! On .  We love good food here and jump on the chance to try something new.  I just had to get some new steaks to try our new sauce ;) .

"It is real good" said my wife.  I think it is one of the best steak sauce I have ever tried.  My son didn't like it as much but he is very picky. He is autistic and only likes what he likes. This sauce would taste great on about anything.  We are going to try it on ribs next and I just can not wait.  It is thick and reminds me of an A1 sauce but better.  It's bold but not too spicy which is just right for me.  I can not eat spicy foods and yet my wife loves them.

So here goes the fun part.  I get to give 2 sets of 2 bottles away to my readers.

Tropical Traditions Coconut oil Review

Tropical Traditions sent me a large jar of Coconut oil to review.  I do not know my oils but my wife sure does. The following opinions are mine and hers.

Here is a video about Tropical Traditions

Here is a great article about the health benefits of Coconut Oil. 

She makes everything with it! I can not believe it.  She even uses it in place of shortening.  She made apple pie with it.  I so want more.  It was so good and It only enhanced the flavor.  It taste great and even our son loves this oil too.  It has great health benefits and even skin and hair benefits.  We are now big fans of Tropical Traditions.

Stoneyfield Farm Yogurt Review

Stonyfield farm is a top Organic Company that offered me a giveaway and review. I took them up on it.

First we tried it at our house. We tried the Stonyfield farm Smoothies and Yogurt tubes (which my son loves.) They where gone with in the first week we got them. We went out to Whole Foods and picked out a few berry and fruit flavors that we know we all like. My son finished his (squeezers) Tubes and started eating our smoothies. I tried them and normally I do not like yogurt but Their smoothies are really good in my opinion. My wife who is like a Yogurt fanatic said they are simply one of the best.

 So what do you think? Do you know Stonyfield farm? Have you ever tried them? How do you feel about Organic Yogurt? Please feel free to let me know. Now for the fun part. The giveaway! Here are the rules:

Chobani Yogurt Review and Giveaway!

Who doesn't know the name Chobani? It is infamous in the Greek Yogurt world.

Most people know now that Greek yogurt is way healthier then the mainstream alternative.  It is also thicker and creamier than any other yogurt I have ever had.  I was not a fan of yogurt until the day I tried Greek Yogurt.

Chobani does not disappoint.  They have a large selection of flavors and and has many low fat selections.  They have a higher protein level than most yogurts.  The taste is outstanding. . Chobani is all natural, Hormone free, and low sugar.

Our favorite variety was Pomegranate with Peach coming in for a close second. We didnt like the vanilla nor the plain very much but we do love making smoothies with the vanilla and a dressing with plain.  We make a greek cucumber dressing for pork chops.

 My son loves the idea of the new kids flavors but we have not found a place to sale.

Flavors: Honey-Nana and VerryBerry. Blended, low-fat, only natural ingredients, free of preservatives, artificial colors, & sweeteners 

 A yogurt my kid will love? What was that blur?  Oh, my wife running to the store to go buy some. A healthy snack is a wonderful lunch idea.  Maybe I can steal one of his.  He is a watch dog with his stuff though.  Fat chance I guess. 

 Overall a great All Natural yogurt that taste great and is great for you.  A mothers dream. (or in this case fathers.)

Chobani is giving one of my viewers a chance to win a case of yogurt!  You will get 12 VIP coupons for individual 6 oz cups if you win!

Sorry Everyone!

I have been having problems getting this blog going.  I am new to all this and do not have the slightest idea what I am doing.  That said, My blog has been dealing me issues. Please bear with me.


I am a pop-aholic.  Everyone who knows me laughs when I say I give up pop.  It does not last long.  I try to give up pop because my wife keeps telling me how bad it is for me.  My son is copying after his father and drinks way to much pop.  Sometimes I wish I never got started drinking it.

Soda Stream has machines so you can make your own soda.  This to me is a wonderful idea and gives me so much hope.  They are also coming out with an all Natural line.  My wife would be so happy because she is always on me about being healthy.

The machine comes already set up and you just pop the little co2 tanks in the back.  Then screw on a bottle of water and pump twice.  If you like a lot of carbonation you might want to try 3-4.  Then unscrew your bottle from the machine and add a capful of the flavoring you want..  Next you just put on the lid to mix and then pour.  So easy and fun for the family to get involved in.

 I was a little weary of trying them because I am pretty stuck on my types of soda and really am stubborn about giving it up.  I like what I like! Anyways, (insert my wife rolling her eyes.)  

First off I tried the energy.  I drink tons of energy drinks.  It tasted a lot like  Red bull.  No kidding.  It was so good.  I make it almost every day for me now.  It really does save you money especially on energy drinks.  We all know how pricey they can be.  I also have a highly energetic son to keep up with and need all I can get.  

(oh, if only they could make youth energy in a glass.)

Suddenly the song time in a bottle just popped in my head.  That is so odd.  

Next, but not least.  I have always wanted to say that.  Next, I tried the cola.  It was just as good as coca cola and I am finished with the whole bottle already.  

My wifes absolute favorite is Tea flavors.  She actually drinks them and to say she is picky is a massive understatement.   


Overall, we really love this machine.  My 9 year old can operate it no problem.  Its great and easy for us.

Thank you everyone for reading My First Review. I will be adding a video review to this post soon.
