Product Reviews - Conscious Box December 2011

I have a few product reviews to share with you today from my December 2011 Conscious Box. The first I have is my sample packet of Chimes Ginger Chews. 

Some of you may know that I am an absolute ginger fanatic. I love it in cooking and in candy/snack form, so I was really happy to see this product in my first Conscious Box! 

My flavor was peppermint, which was awesome. I have never had a peppermint ginger candy before, but it tasted amazing. I also have to say that I am incredibly grateful to have had this product around. At the risk of TMI, I had a bad infection and resulting antibiotics (and resulting steroids/antihistimines for the resulting allergy to the antibiotics), and with all that combined, I had some bad bouts of nausea. Ginger chews are better than the best anti-nausea drugs on the market, so I can honestly say that these kept me functional during finals week and before Christmas!

My second product for today is a sample packet of Justin's Nut Almond Butter. This was an awesome sample. It has a slightly more subtle flavor than peanut butter, but it tastes amazingly fresh and flavorful on sandwiches. I will definitely be purchasing this in the future! I have always wanted to try almond butter. Not much to say except that all of you should try it! I imagine this might be a nice substitute for peanut butter sometimes to get a change-up nutritionally, too. :)

That's all for now! I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend if you are in the US.


  1. I'm a big fan of the Justin's Hazelnut butter myself and use it all over the place!

  2. I loved the Chimes Ginger Candies I got, my box had the Orange flavor. They were so good, and I don't even usually like ginger!
