I Can't Believe It's Not Butter ~ New and Improved + Giveaway!


Get ready because I Can't Believe It’s Not Butter! has a new recipe made with real, simple ingredients that include a delicious blend of plant-based oils, purified water and a pinch of salt and no artificial preservatives. The new flavors include: Original, Light and Olive Oil. It is also the first Unilever spread that to be made with non-GMO sourced ingredients.

These new spreads can be incorporated into a healthy, balanced diet and provide a source of good fats similar to those found in avocados, walnuts and almonds. Unilever has a newly renovated facility in New Century, Kansas, which currently sends "zero waste" to landfill, with a commitment to be 100% powered by renewable energy by 2020.


The packaging has been redesigned. The package is now more space-efficient in the refrigerator. It is also designed to be dishwasher safe so you can reuse it. I know when I was little, we never had Tupperware. My mom would reuse margarine containers for leftovers. So this is great because I have picked up that habit as well! We this new redesign, Unilever hopes to eliminate about 552,000 pounds of plastic from the waste stream per year.

The flavor of I Can't Believe it's Not Butter is delicious as well. I like it because it is easy to spread unlike butter. It is great for toast and bread. You can also use it in a variety of recipes. Sometimes I use this instead of butter because of its ease.


It is a great alternative to butter if you are watching the fat in your diet. Now that the ingredients are plant based and non-GMO, it makes it so much better. If you would like to try the new I Can't Believe it's Not Butter products, head over to your local grocery store. You can get more information on the website. Foll ICBINB on Facebook and Twitter.

GoGargle! Soothes your Sore Throat + $20 CVS Gift Card Giveaway!


A few months ago, I went to Los Angeles on a press trip. When I returned home, I had a scratchy throat. It turned into a full blown cold with the worst sore throat I have ever had. But I got over it only to get sick again after a press trip to Las Vegas. It was terrible. When we went on vacation for Christmas, we returned to our house in chaos after some remodeling. The contractor left it in a shambles. There was dust everywhere and we had to clean it. Since then, I have had a scratchy throat because of the dust.

I have tried a lot of things to help my throat. I have gargled with salt and lemon. One of my grandmother's remedies. I sip at lemon with honey. I have honey water tea every night. Some of the helps but my throat is still scratchy and that causes me to cough and it is irritating. I am pretty much over it.

So when I had the opportunity to try a new product made especially for sore throats, I had to try it because for the past few months, I have been one of over 15 million people who have had to visit a doctor because of a sore throat.

Unlike colored sprays and drops made with scary sounding chemical ingredients that only hide the pain for a while, GoGargle! is made up of salts to treat the sore throat and soothing ingredients like honey and aloe to moisturize. This combination of ingredients both reduces inflammation but also soothes and moisturizes making GoGargle! a more natural way to treat a sore throat.


What I loved about GoGargle! was how easy it was to use. Open it, pop it into a warm glass of water and it fizzles. Then you gargle and it soothes your throat. It soothed mine! I usually use salt water to gargle but oftentimes the taste is so horrible that it makes me worse. GoGargle! has a subtle minty taste so it is not as bad. It is also very smooth so when I was gargling, it didn't hurt my throat either.

GoGargle! doesn't just mask the pain. The healing power of salt works to reduce inflammation, while the honey, aloe and chamomile soothe throat tissue and provide long-lasting relief. The special blend of salts reduce painful inflammation and bacteria in the back of your throat by drawing fluid out of swollen tissue, while the aloe, chamomile, honey and zinc soothe and moisturize it.

GoGargle! is going to be in medicine cabinet from now on. I wish I would have had this months ago! During cold and flu season, you should as well. Head over to the GoGargle! site and grab a coupon so you can try it. You can use the shopping app  Checkout51 you can go here and get a coupon as well.
