Hillshire Farm American Craft Sausage Review

Upon receiving two free coupons for two out of the three flavors of Hillshire Farms American Craft sausages to sample I was pretty open to giving these a whirl. We are not big processed food lovers at our home but sometimes a quick meal is just what needs to happen and this was perfect. These sausages come in smoky bourbon, jalapeno cheddar, and garlic onion flavors. They were priced at $2.89 each on sale at the time, but again, I was able to try these for free.

I choose smoky bourbon and jalapeno cheddar for my family then had my husband grill them one night for dinner. I had a smoky bourbon link and was happily surprised with the taste. Sweet,smoky, and not too greasy.

My husband had one of the jalapeno cheddar links and he was also surprised at the kick of heat that this sausage offered. He said it was tasty enough to eat alone with no additional condiments added.

The only down side to these sausages were the nutritional content. At 22g of fat, 260 calories and 630g sodium per sausage in the bourbon links and even higher in the jalapeno links, this was a huge drawback for me. Even though I would not expect  a processed sausage to be on any great diet list, I normally would never purchase these and feed them to my family or myself on a regular basis. Now, if you are not health conscious, I can say without a doubt, these you will find very appealing because they were very good.

Coppertone Clearly Sheer Sunscreen Review

Recently, I was sent a box full of the new Coppertone Clearly Sheer sunscreen to sample.

As a natural redhead with fair skin I am no stranger to sunburn. I have tried many different brands. Lotion and sprays and some honestly do better than others. Regardless, I still get redder than most no matter how often I apply. Although, what I struggle with when it comes to sunscreen is how it makes me feel.

When I was invited to sample this sunscreen I was pretty excited but at the same time hesitant. It claims it has a nice light scent and there is one formula for everyday activities and then also a beach and pool formula(not shown). I was sent the Clearly Sheer for sunny days. One regular sized bottle, three sample tubes(awesome for our hiking pack and dry bags) and two spray formulas in sample sizes also.

I gave the Clearly Sheer for sunny days lotion a try at Devil’s Lake State Park where we hiked for many hours throughout the day. I figured it would be a good test of sun, heat and sweat.

My first impression was it was very light and rubbed in quickly. A big PLUS for me. Some other brands are like rubbing on Elmer’s School Glue, literally!!! And I loved the scent. Citrus scented but not over the top and smelly. Very nice and refreshing.

As for coverage, I have to say it was good. However, the trails were a sun/shade mixture but I did not end the hike with any redness.

Overall, I will be buying this product myself. I do believe it will cover at least as good as all the rest when the heat of summer is on and I am out in it for the entire day. The big selling point for me is the way it feels when applied.

Give it a try and see what you think.
