Tastefully Simple Review & Giveaway

I was contacted and sent product from a company called Tastefully Simple.  They asked me to choose 3 items to review (yeay 3!!) and then here comes the BEST part.....I get to give my favorite flavor away to 2 of my readers!!  More on that at the bottom, now onto the review.

The flavors I chose were Fuzzy Navel, PiƱa Colada and the Triple The Fun 3-pack which includes Lovin' Lemon, Juicy Watermelon Margarita & Mango Breeze Margarita.  The two bigger single containers make 8-8oz servings and the smaller ones in the 3-pack make 4-8oz servings.



What you get when you order one is:
  • A container that you use to mix everything up in and then stick in the freezer  
  • The powdered flavor mix  
What you need to supply is:
  • Water 
  • Alcohol type that is asked for depending on the mix you choose
If you choose to make a non-alcoholic version then just skip the alcohol which allows you to no spend any additional money for preparation.  I'm sure you all have already guessed.....I added the alcohol!

The end result is a flavorful slushy cocktail.






All in all, this is a pretty cool way to enjoy a cocktail on a hot summer day!  For that cocktail enthusiast in your life who seems to have it all, I bet you they don't have one of these!  Give them a fun alternative to serving cocktails.

When I made and froze the first one I opened it up to look inside and saw a frozen block.  I guess I took the directions "stir & serve" too literally.  I tried stirring and chopping and whatnot to make it drinkable.  Hello, frozen!  Then I decided that the best thing to do is to open it up and sit it on the counter and let it soften a bit.  






I suggest to check it and break it up every 5-10 minutes until it becomes good and slushy.  Once it is the consistency that you want, stir it up really well.  Then you can scoop it into a glass and either drink it or use a spoon and eat it that way. 

I want to thank Tastefully Simple for sending me these fun slushy cocktail mixes to try!  I had fun and enjoyed it.

Want to order your own slushy cocktail mixes?  Check out tastefullysimple.com and order some today!!

Now onto the contest!!  Given that my favorite flavor was the Juicy Watermelon Margarita Mix, Two lucky winners will win one Triple The Fun 3-pack from Tastefully Simple!  

You MUST live in the USA to enter.  I will contact you via the email address you provide.  Good luck!!

  2. I love reading your blog. It gives me ideas for when I get together with friends and family. We have tried a couple of your drinks and enjoyed. If it is as simple as you are saying then it will make it easier when we have BBQ.
