sweetriot Riot Bar 70% Quirky Quinoa


sr_logosweetriot Riot Bar 70% Quirky Quinoa

So, the folks at sweetriot asked Hubby and I to do a taste challenge. They wanted us to compare their sweetriot Riot Bar 70% Quirky Quinoa with a Nestle Crunch bar. They even sent us both bars to try. Let’s see how they did.

Which is better tasting? sweetriot’s dark chocolate beats Nestlé’s milk chocolate in my opinion. We both like that sweetriot is sweet, but not overly sweet. Hubby likes that the crunchy quinoa gives a bigger crunch to the bar.

Which is better for ya?   sweetriot wins this round hands down. It is organic, non-GMO, and only 20 calories a square. Really who can eat just one square.  sweetriot is also Kosher, Vegan, and fair trade. What more can you ask for?

We are thrilled to be putting the CRUNCH into healthy dark chocolate with the sweetriot 70% Quirky Quinoa riotBar. We are delivering a premium, healthy, fair trade, uber delicious dark chocolate riotbar-quinoa_largeedition of the rice crispy crunch chocolate that so many of us know and love. Get your dark chocolate fix while enjoying the numerous healthy benefits of quinoa. Quinoa is rich in protein and contains all nine amino acids.

“The Promise: The Birth of the Messiah” on DVD

promise-coverThe Promise: The Birth of the Messiah

I love  being a review blogger. I love trying new things, reading books before they are published, seeing movies early etc… and telling y’all about them. There are some reviews that I really love having the opportunity to do. This is one of those. I was sent the DVD “The Promise: The Birth of the Messiah” so I could let y’all know about this wonderful musical presentation of the story of the nativity. Glorious Films of Ontario Canada has outdone themselves with this beautifully animated portrayal of the birth of Jesus. The perfect way to show the young ones in your life the wonderful story of Christ’s arrival on the earth. This is the movie you will want to share with your family year after year. Start a new tradition with “The Promise”.

Check Out The Movie Trailer:

The Promise: The Birth of the Messiah is an animated musical celebration of one of the most pivotal events in all human history, the birth of Jesus Christ.
This beautifully crafted musical is a faithful adaptation of the birth narrative from the Gospel of Luke in both story and song. The animated production leverages optical motion technology to blend traditional animation techniques with the performance talents of ballet dancers and dramatic stage actors. The result is a unique and worshipful story experience that will inspire audiences young and old for years to come.
In ancient Israel, during the days of King Herod, a young couple’s world is turned upside down when the prophecy of a long-awaited deliverer unfolds upon their lives. They must trust in God’s promise in the midst of rising challenges, and their faithfulness is rewarded as they witness the most surprising and glorious event of all human history – the promise fulfilled in the birth of the Messiah.
