I Dig It from Thames and Kosmos
Tryazon Party

I had the funnest party for my Granddaughters before they left to go back to Texas.

My granddaughters are huge dinosaur fanatics and love dinosaur bones.  They love to go with their dad to see museums with the dinosaurs and of course their favorite movies is the Jurassic Park series. 
They find dinosaur teeth replicas awesome and anything with dinosaurs is fascinating to them. 
At ages 8 and 10 you would think girls would be into more of the girly stuff, but these girls really do love dinosaurs! 

For Christmas I gave them a kit to dig dinosaurs bones, which they shared and loved. So when Tryazon offered the opportunity to review the 'I Dig It' party kits I couldn't pass up this chance to have fun with the girls.  

I was really excited when I got accepted and decided this would be a great opportunity to have a going away party for the girls and invite all their new friends. 

Tyrazon and 'I Dig It' sent me 8 kits so we were able to do a good sized party and see the different kits offered., 
The kits consisted of a Dinosaur Tooth Replica, a Glow in the Dark flying dinosaur bones kit, Real Fossils, a Dinosaur Skeleton Impression,  Crystal Rocks, A Dinosaur Skeleton kit, and a Dinosaur Egg to dig away at for a baby dino. 

The 'I Dig It' kits are blocks of plaster and sand that the kids chip at with tiny tools that are included. 
The blocks contain various items depending on the kit.  The bones are plastic and are assembled, after releasing from the plaster, to make a skeleton. 

We invited 8 kids and seven showed up.  One girl got the dinosaur skeleton impression and it broke on her so she ended up doing the extra fossil kit.  She loved finding tiny teeth and shells in her block.
Her brother also did a fossil block and was really excited finding the fossils. 

My granddaughter was really diligent with her dino egg, while her sister had a harder time with the replica dino tooth.  The tooth replica is also out of plaster and broke as it was fragile and we couldn't differentiate the tooth from the plaster very well. 

The others really enjoyed finding the plastic skeleton parts and assembling their dinosaur skeletons.  They really enjoyed it and I enjoyed seeing the smiling faces and their excitement. 

I am very thankful at Tryazon and 'I Dig It' for this great chance to see their kits in action and to see the smiling faces of these wonderful kids!

Unreal Snacks From Tryazon and Unreal

Unreal has a great selection of treats that provide a better and healthier selection of sweets for the whole family.  These fair trade certified sweets contain organic ingredients, nothing artificial, are non-GMO, and are vegan.  

I had the wonderful chance to try 5 of Unreal's wonderful treats through Tryazon, which I shared with my mom, two adult sons, and two of their adult friends.  We all really enjoyed them, even with the dark chocolate my boys foundered on them. 

Here is a breakdown of the treats we enjoyed:

UNREAL Milk Chocolate Gems:
These Gems give M&M's a run for their money. It is the one treat we had that contained milk chocolate.  What makes them different from other milk chocolate treats?   These contain less sugar than other chocolate treats.  They contain organic cane sugar along with tapioca syrup and organic blue agave inulin.  These helps bring the carb count down to a small 6g of carbs per packet.  They are naturally colored with beet juice concentrate, carrot juice, hibiscus juice, anatto extract, turmeric extract, and red cabbage juice.  They have a great taste! 

UNREAL Dark Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Gems:
These have a twist from the milk chocolate gems with their delightful crunch.  Quinoa adds a great crunch to these dark chocolate version of the Gems. Quinoa does add a little bit of a different taste but mixed with the dark it is a real treat and an added health benefit with the extra fiber!   The dark chocolate is %72 percent cocoa you can eat 40 pieces and keep your carbs to 15g. 

UNREAL Dark Chocolate Peanut Gems:
If your a fan of peanuts then these peanut gems are just for you.  %72 percent cocoa cloaks a delicious peanut inside.  These have the candy coating made from natural juices and you can keep your carbs at 13g with 16 pieces.

UNREAL Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups:
Now for my favorite!!.. I love peanut butter cups and these did not disappoint.  The dark chocolate encases a wonderful creamy center that has a great peanut taste.  They are gluten free and made with sustainable ingredients.  1 cup equals 5 g sugar and 1 protein.  

UNREAL Dark Chocolate Crispy Peanut Butter Cups: 
What makes the peanut butter cup even better?....crispy quinoa!  Still the same great dark chocolate taste with creamy peanut butter and a touch of crispy quinoa for a slight crunch to please your mouth!  Still at 5g carbs and 1 g protein. 

We had rave reviews from family and friends on these great snacks and in today's world the healthier we can snack the better things are!  So grab your today and let me know what you think!

Barbecue Skewers Set - LIFETIME GUARANTEE - Stainless Steel Wide BBQ Kabob Sticks - 10 Inch Flat Metal Shish Kabab with Food Remover Disc for Grilling - Brazilian Kebab Rotisserie Maker by Cave Tools

Summer time... the time when the grill comes out and the smell of barbecuing is in the air. Everything goes on to the grill, from steak, seafood, chicken, veggies and more! From every flavor of spice to every sauce, the food is great!

One of the funnest foods to barbecue is shish kabobs! Where anything goes while you mix and match. Kabobs are famous around the world.

As Wikipedia puts it: 

Kebab (also American kabob) is a term in English for several types of food. The word originated in the Middle East and is also common in other languages worldwide, with numerous spellings and variants. It has different definitions in different varieties of English, and in different cultures.

In contemporary American and British English, a kebab is a common dish, consisting of a skewer with small pieces of meat or seafood, together with vegetables such as onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers. Also known as shish kebab or sometimes shashlik, kebabs are customarily prepared in homes and restaurants, and are usually cooked on a grill or barbeque. The word kebab may also be used as a general term in English to describe any similar-looking skewered food, such as brochette, satay, souvlaki, yakitori, or numerous small chunks of any type of food served on a stick. This is different from its use in the Middle East, where shish (Turkish: şiş) is the word for skewer, while kebab comes from the Persian word for grilling.

The most common tools for skewers for the kabob is bamboo or wood, these have to be soaked in water before use so they do not burn or catch fire, and they have to be replaced each time. But you can prevent this hassle by using 10" Stainless Steel Wide BBQ Kabob Sticks by Cave Tools to place your favorite mix of food pieces on.

Cave tools offers these 10" metal skewers that are flat so that your food doesn't slide around. They are dishwasher safe and easy to use. I love the food removal ring!! This ring is placed at the top so that when your food is done you can push it down and it slides your food down without ruining it. Especially great for veggies. Beats the normal fork or finger routine. The metal on these skewers does get hot so you will need tongs, gloves, or hot pads to remove the skewers from the grill.
They are a bit flexible but strong and will hold your food well. They wash up and store easily.

I used these with a variety of veggies and steak. The food cooked well and it all come off easily. I have to say we really enjoyed it. The great thing about kabobs is that you can build them to your liking. The kids love to add what they want. We just cut up a variety of veggies, fruit, and meats and they build away with their own designs and combinations.

So if you are tired of the regular burgers and hot dogs, step it up a bit with shish kabobs skewered onto Cave Tools Metal skewers.
