Pink Panda Candy Review and Giveaway


For those of you who like gummy candy's, there is a new gummy candy with only 2 grams of sugar and 90 calories per 1.8oz. bag (23 candy's), and it's called Pink Panda. Same great texture and taste as other gummy candy bags with less sugar and less calories. It's candy without the guilt! Pink Panda currently comes in 3 varieties; Astro Blasters (sour), Treasure Chews (chewy) and Gummy Bears (juicy). ***Bonus*** All Pink Panda candy's are made in the USA, vegan friendly and their Gummy Bears are keto friendly at only 5g of net carbs per bag. So what makes these tasty treats sweet? They contain allulose, a natural form of sugar found in foods like raisins and figs. 

"It tastes like sugar, but doesn't act like sugar in your body. Since allulose isn't absorbed by the body, you subtract it, along with fiber to find the net carbs per bag. "

I was sent some Treasure Chews and Astro Blasters (pictured above) for review. The Treasure Chews are on the chewier side, kinda like a fruit snack. They are sweet, but not to sweet with just a bit of tartness to them. The Astro Blasters are sour and taste very similar to a popular brand of sour gummies, you know the kid ones. My daughter also enjoyed both varieties and snuck off with a couple of bags for later. 

If you have have a sweet tooth you will surely enjoy these. You can get your fingers on them online. Unfortunatly the gummy bears are currently sold out, but they are working on making some more. 

I also have a couple of bags of Pink Panda Candy I would like to treat one Girly Girl reader to. You can enter to win 2 bags of Treasure Chews and 2 bags of Astro Blasters. That's a total of 4 bags of Pink Panda sweets! This giveaway is open to US residents. Be sure to make your email address visible so I can contact you if you win. Good luck!

***Gift Idea*** Novica Review and Giveaway


Novica is a company that is dear to my heart. I have written several product reviews in the past and have remained a customer of theirs through the years. They call themselves the Impact marketplace because purchasing from them has a direct impact on the global artisans that create the array of products they have for sale. These artisans share their time, creativity and skills to create art pieces, and Novica offers the platform to sale them. To date Novica customers have helped send over 100 million dollars to artisans around the world! When you purchase from Novica you are not only receiving a one of a kind masterpiece, but you are helping empower people to share their crafts,  make money, and  improve their lives and the communities they live in.  

Since I first learned about Novica several years ago, they have expanded their marketplace with over 70,000 products. They carry everything from jewelry, clothing, housewares, clean beauty products, and they have kept up with the changing times and our now carrying a selection of unique face masks. Sewists from many regions including Thailand, India and Central America are putting needle to thread and creating fashionable face masks to do their part in keeping the world healthy. 

I was given anther opportunity to chose and review one of the many products available on Novica. Let me tell you, this was not an easy task. They have so many lovely things,  but I finally settled on this beautiful pitcher by artisans Javier and Efren in Mexico. 

Since the 1990's Javier Gutierrez and Efren Canteras have worked together on preserving Mexico's blown glass industry. I love the bubbling and variances of color shown in their creation. The pitcher has an ice chamber which is what really drew me to it. It is so unique and a the aquamarine color suits my kitchen perfectly. This pitcher will be great for keeping everything from sangria, margaritas, or lemonade cool, but not watered down. I love that Novica always includes a special thank you note with purchase. My postcard included a handwritten thank you in Spanish for supporting Mexico's artisans.  They also have this pitcher in this gorgeous lemon green color that would make a wonderful gift this holiday. 

The people over at Novica have also been generous enough to allow me to offer one Girly Girl reader the chance to win a $50 gift code to use on their site. This giveaway is open to US residents. Be sure your email is public so I can contact you if you win. This giveaway will end on November 27. Enter below and good luck!
