Disclosure: I received products for review. All opinions are honest and are my own.
Vitacost is an online retailer that sells many name brands and their own Vitacost brand of vitamins, supplements, health foods and whole foods. I have ordered from Vitacost before and love the selection and the prices. It is so easy to shop online and everything is shipped quickly and securely right to your door. This is a huge plus if you spend your grocery trips with three little boys who don't want to be there either.
I was pleased with how nicely packaged my order was. Glass bottles were wrapped in bubble wrap and they used a nice divider to keep merchandise from shifting too much. Everything arrived in perfect condition.
I used one of these Frontier Organic Vanilla Beans in my son's birthday cupcakes. The cupcakes were delicious. These vanilla beans were fresh and fragrant and they were less expensive at Vitacost than the vanilla beans I purchased earlier in the summer at my local big box grocery store.
We loved these Eden Organic Pistachios. I especially loved that they are shelled and the boys can easily eat them. These were the boys' absolute favorite snack.
I have mentioned before that I burned my foot and my upper thigh very badly earlier in the summer. (2nd and 3rd degree burns) Both wounds have healed, but I was warned by the doctor to protect my burns from the sun. I have been using this sunblock on myself and the boys making sure to use extra on my foot as it is exposed in my summer shoes of choice, flip flops. I like the Nature's Gate Kids Mineral Sunscreen because it blends quickly and easily into skin and it is fragrance free. The boys don't mind putting it on since there is no strong smell and it doesn't irritate them.
Honestly, these Best of All Banana Chips were not sweet enough for us. They are sweetened, but we like things really sweet in our house and these just didn't measure up. I do like that they are made with coconut oil though.
I have fallen in love with Dessert Essence Coconut Shampoo and Dessert Essence Coconut Conditioner. I only wash my hair every other day because I am a busy Mom and because it's healthier for my hair. While using these products, I feel like my hair and scalp stay cleaner in between washings. I have also noticed more softness in my hair and I love the scent. I will be ordering these products again.
These have been a favorite of mine for a long time. I love Lundberg Sesame and Seaweed Rice Chips. The boys love them too. My addiction is really bad. I could eat the whole bag in one afternoon. We do not require a gluten free diet, but these are gluten free. Vitacost has a huge selection of gluten free products.
We tried the Coombs Family Farms Organic Maple syrup over homemade pancakes. It has a wonderfully rich flavor and a little goes a long way. You only need a little to add flavor to pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, etc. We loved it.
We tried the Seeds of Change Cuban Style Rice. We were surprised that a boxed convenience food could be this tasty. My husband even said it was good. It was super easy to make too.
We loved these Made in Nature Organic Dried Mangoes. These made a great portable healthy snack for the boys on summer outings. They were also plenty sweet without any added sugar.
Peeled Snacks have been a family favorite for a long time so we tried the Peeled Snacks Paradise Found variety and loved them. This was another great portable snack for the boys. My favorite is still pineapple, but this blend which had pineapple in it was delicious.
