OffLimits’ Cereal Glitter is Changing the Ease of Meal-time!

This may make mealtime less of a struggle!

OffLimits—the spunkiest cereal brand on the block—is here to help make mealtime more fun with one of their most unique items yet ~ CEREAL GLITTER!

In line with all OffLimit’s products, the Cereal Glitter is gluten-free, vegan, non artificial, and sugar-free made from butterfly pea flower, lucuma flour, and edible glitter. It can be used on anything from cereal to ice cream, and even as makeup. 

This product will revamp any difficult mealtime with its mystical, magical look containing only the purest form of natural ingredients! I had the opportunity to try this one out for myself and my little reviewer (he’s 4 years old) really liked this one! He tried it in his cereal and on his ice cream and he liked it the most on his ice cream!

Cypress, April 28th Pet of the Week

Cypress’ happy times came to an abrupt, sad end when his person moved into an assisted living facility. Cypress had nowhere to go except our shelter. At only 6 years old, he so needs to spend his life in another loving home. He’s such a delightful, affectionate tuxie fellow—he loves cheek and head rubs. He’ll slip shyly away one moment and return the next, curious to see what he missed! Our volunteers cannot resist him, and they hope you won’t be able to, either! Adoptions are conducted by appointment only except for Saturdays and Sundays, when they open from 11 a.m.–3 p.m., so email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov or visit our shelter at 7700 E. Spring St. to meet or foster Cypress. Ask for ID#A672423.

(This rescue encouraged by the usual suspects.)
