Brush with Fame

Hey everyone,

Long time, no post! I know, I know. I've been super active over on my other blog though. You should check it out. And follow along! :)

I met someone famous. I did. And he was so nice. Matthew West is an amazing artist. He did a free show/taping on Wednesday, and I got to go with my good friend Kara!

First of all, Kara is awesome. So it would have been great even had we not had our brush with fame. But, we did get to have it, and it was great!



I really recommend you check out his work. He's brilliant! It's amazing to see how God is working through him.

UNREAL Candy- Just how good is it?

Since I'm a BzzAgent, I get to try all kinds of stuff for free or at a discount. Yesterday, I tried a product right up my semi-hippie alley. UNREAL Candy is candy, unjunked. Now, I'm not saying this is super healthy candy, but it doesn't have high-fructose corn syrup, anything artificial, and no hydrogenated oils.

See how pretty they are?

I know what you're asking- Amanda, is it any good?

It is.

I, too, was surprised to discover this. I'm a child of the 80's. Candy should be bright, bold, occasionally neon colors. Don't mess with my high-fructose corn syrup. Hydrogenated oils? Like buttah. 

Ok, maybe not to that extreme. But, to me, candy should taste like candy. And this does. It's really, really good. 

I would buy it again, and I would choose it over it's rival M&M's. 

Well, not if I had a coupon that made the M&M's free. But on an even price comparison, UNREAL Candy wins, hands-down. And unless there's a sale, the two candies are pretty evenly priced. 


Give these a try. Seriously. You'll be glad you did. My kids have already asked for more.You can pick it up at CVS. The information I received said you can also get it at Kroger (or that family) stores, but I personally couldn't find it there.
