#Review Baskin-Robbins’ Festive New Ice Cream Cakes

Do you have a holiday dinner party coming up? If you do you should go check out Baskin Robbins' festive ice cream cakes. They have the Snowman, the Elf and Santa cakes for you to choose.  The cakes can be customized with your favorite flavor. These cake serve 8-12 people.

Serves 8-12 people and retail price of $26.99 

Santa Ice Cream Cake

I reviewed the Santa cake for my Christmas dinner party at my home.  Since I was running late, I picked this one up so I was not able to personalize it  with my favorite flavor. I finished all my Xmas shopping early but Xmas dinner is another event by itself. I went to the store 4x because I kept forgetting something for the dinner table. Now you don't have to forget put this on your list and bring it to your party.

This Santa cake was filled with chocolate inside. Lots of chocolate. It was a little too much for my taste and I love chocolate. The red part of Santa was too sweet but the rest was just the right amount. I ate the tip of Santa's hat. That part had regular cream frosting not ice cream. It surprised me as I thought it was ice cream all around.

Overall this was a fun cake that we all liked. As soon as I took the box out of the freezer the kids wanted some. Ice cream cake is good at any age it brings the kid inside us all out. For more information about Baskin-Robbins and its wide range of ice cream flavors and frozen treats, visit or follow them on Facebook  and on Twitter.

#Review Xlear SparX Candy

I haven't met a person who doesn't like candy. It one of the main things people give out on Halloween.  Since becoming a mom, I have received tons of advice about reducing the intake of candy my children eat.  I have a sweet tooth and I'm sure we all do but have you tried candy that is truly good for you. I got the chance to review SparX candy in Citrus and Fruit flavors from Moms Meet.


What is Xlear SparX candy? 

  • It's a small dot candy.
  • Xlear SparX is sweetened naturally with xylitol, a plant-based, dentist-recommended sweetener that’s been proven to improve dental health and strengthen tooth enamel.
  • Xylitol doesn’t interfere with the body’s blood sugar levels or insulin production, making it safe for kids and adults on a sugar-controlled diet.
  • Xlear SparX Candy is available in Berry, Citrus, and Fruit varieties; all are free of artificial colors and flavors.
  • Xlear SparX Candy retails for $1.49 for one tube.

As a mom, this is music to my ears. It comes in a 30 gram small bottle with snap close lid.  At $1.49 a bottle not too expensive in moderation.  My son found the Citrus favor bottle and opened it and you guess it. He ate them all within 3 days.  Aidan liked it a lot and said, "It was yummy mommy". I tasted the Fruit favor and it reminded me of sweet tarts. It was sweet but not over powering. It left a lingering taste in my tongue after eating them. At my Christmas eve dinner with family and friends, I will have a small bowl with these goodies for all to eat.

SparX candy can be purchased online HERE and at your local Vitamin Shoppe and Whole Food Stores. You can check HERE  to locate a store in your neighborhood.
