Enjoy the Last Taste of Summer with Yogurtland’s Three New Flavors! New Flavors for August Include Dairy Free Coconut Cream Pie, Nectarine Peach Orange Tart and Strawberry Rose

This August, Yogurtland, the ever-popular, industry leader, is expanding its flavor offerings to include three new handcrafted flavors plus two new toppings.

Beginning August 6th, and available for a limited time while supplies last, the Yogurtland flavor lineup will include Dairy Free Coconut Cream Pie, Nectarine Peach Orange Tart and Strawberry Rose frozen yogurt.

Yogurtland’s Coconut Cream Pie is the second time Yogurtland is offering a flavor with a dairy free base made from coconut milk. Combining traditional graham cracker and mouthwatering pie flavor notes in a coconut milk base, this flavor gives fans an opportunity to create a delicious dairy free treat.

The Nectarine Peach Orange Tart flavor offers a burst of fresh tropical flavors. The nectarine and peach provide taste buds with a sensational juicy flavor experience while the orange gives a nice zest, providing a well balanced sweet and fruity tart flavor.

Yogurtland combines juicy California strawberries and floral rose water in a sweet base to create the creamy Strawberry Rose flavor. This light and refreshing frozen yogurt will have fans craving a second serving.

Along with three new flavors, Yogurtland will introduce two new toppings for a limited time. Bringing a different variety of flavors to the topping bar, the scrumptious Cotton Candy Fizzies will have fans enjoying traditional cotton candy flavors with a twist. Additionally, Yogurtland’s craveable Sour Rainbows will bring a spark of color to each cup and a blend of sweet and sour flavors.

I had the opportunity today to try the new flavors with my family and my favorites are Coconut Cream Pie and the Nectarine Peach Orange Tart flavors! My son liked the new candy choices! 

     

Yogurtland’s flavorologists continually create craveable flavors that keep fans loving their frozen dessert experience. Yogurtland owns its own dairy, and by controlling the manufacturing process, the company delivers the highest quality flavors, setting new standards for the industry and delighting guests each day.

Yogurtland features non-fat and low-fat yogurt flavors, ice cream, and non-dairy and no sugar added choices while using milk that contains no antibiotics or added hormones. Fruit flavors are fortified with Vitamin C for an extra boost.

Eight O’Clock Coffee Introduces The Great Coffee Break: A Digital Escape Room Game People Can Play to Win a Year of Free Groceries

Eight O’Clock Coffee, America’s original gourmet coffee, today announces the release of The Great Coffee Break: a digital escape room game that people can play for the chance to win a year of free groceries! The Great Coffee Break is the first Augmented Reality-triggered digital game designed by Escape the Room and can be launched by scanning any Eight O’Clock Coffee package with the Shazam app – or by going directly to GreatCoffeeBreak.com. Set in a fictitious animated roastery, players will solve coffee-themed puzzles to help bags of Eight O’Clock “escape the roastery.” The Great Coffee Break will run from June 17 through August 11, 2018, and eight people will win the grand prize: free groceries for a year.*

Since 1859, generations of Americans have been connecting over Eight O’Clock – enjoying rich, smooth coffee as they share conversations, celebrate special moments, and play games together. The Great Coffee Break will provide consumers with a new way to experience their love of coffee and gaming by leveraging the escape room trend that has grown exponentially in recent years.

Players of the Great Coffee Break will explore different virtual rooms within the roastery to find clues, solve puzzles, and complete the mission. Eight O’Clock Coffee’s game is designed to facilitate the satisfying feeling of discovery that players experience in physical escape rooms – which may be the reason that they have grown in the US from 22 in 2014 to about 2,300 today.

“With the Great Coffee Break, we are tapping into one of the hottest emerging trends in a way that is meaningful to coffee drinkers and relevant to today’s lifestyle,” said Michael Scalera, Senior Brand Manager at Eight O’Clock Coffee. “Our fans tell us all the time that enjoying Eight O’Clock Coffee is key to their day – and it’s certainly key to solving the Great Coffee Break. Plus, while people are ‘escaping the room’ they’ll have a chance to escape their grocery bill for a year.”

“Eight O’Clock Coffee has long provided a meaningful way to bring people together, as does Escape the Room – so putting our brands together was a natural fit,” said Victor Blake, Founder and CEO, Escape the Room. “Bringing both of these experiences to life virtually in a way that makes sense for a solo player was my primary inspiration for The Great Coffee Break game. I’m thrilled with how the game turned out, and I think people will really enjoy playing…hopefully with a cup of Eight O’Clock in their hand.”

Scalera adds, “The Great Coffee Break is a game, not a true reflection of the process at our roasting facility in Landover, MD. We have to keep some secrets, after all.”

The Great Coffee Break promotion runs from June 17, 2018 through August 11, 2018 and was conceived and executed by The S3 Agency in Boonton, NJ. The game is being supported by in-store and digital advertising, social media, and public relations outreach.

To play the Great Coffee Break and for complete rules and details, go to www.GreatCoffeeBreak.com.

*Each Grand Prize of is a year of free groceries, defined as $8,000 awarded in the form of a check. No purchase is necessary to enter. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States or D.C., age 18 or older.

I received a sample of their coffee and love the rich smooth taste!

Floor Sticky After Mopping? Here’s How to Fix It

Floors go through a lot. They’re walked on, scratched, and collect a lot of dirt and grime which can affect their shine and durability. Because of this, it’s important to mop one’s floor to help keep it strong and beautiful. However, one of the biggest problems that cause many to forgo mopping is that it can cause the floor to be sticky. This can make it not only awkward to walk on, but ruin the finishing of a floor, especially if it’s hardwood.

It might seem like fixing this is hopeless, but the good news is that you can prevent sticky floors easily. This article will explore more behind the many steam mops available and a cleaning solution you can use to help stop this. Keep reading to find out more.

What Causes a Sticky Floor?

The first important thing to consider is what exactly causes a floor to be sticky. The answer to this is that it’s simply left-behind chemical residue.

Cleaning solutions for mops often contain an assortment of chemicals. While these make your floor look shiny, they can leave behind the stickiness that many despise. The solvents might remove the dirt and grime from the floor, but they don’t react well with water. This in return causes the sticky floor problem.

It might seem like a sticky floor is just a hassle, it can actually be a bit dangerous. Because the residue is still on the floor, it can harbor bacteria. This can end up causing particles to collect there and can be irritating to pets or kids who like to play on the floor.

 

How to Prevent Your Floor from Being Sticky

To help prevent your floor from getting to be sticky, you’ll want to first take a close look at the type of mop you’re using. Consider the type of flooring you have as some mops work better on specific floors than others. You’ll also want to check for things like microfiber pads, which help to get deep into the crevices of the floor, as well as swiveling features in a mop. The swiveling will help you to better move the mop around in order to clean the floor. To check out what’s the best mops brand for you, learn more on thehousewire.com .

The next step is to find a good cleaning solution for it. Ideally, you shouldn’t buy pre-made ones which are usually made up of various type of harmful chemicals. These not only have an unpleasant smell, but can be damaging to your floor. You can actually mix some water and vinegar together to make a diluted solution. This works just as well as store-bought ones and can even work as a disinfectant thanks to the vinegar’s strong ingredients. You can also put some essential oils into this mixture to add a calming smell to your floors. This method is not only eco-friendly, but works well at helping to prevent sticky floors.

It can be a little overwhelming when you’re trying to clean your floors only to have the cleaning products make even more of a mess on them. While it might be easy to grab a bottle of chemical mopping solution, it’s a good idea to look closely at the ingredients to prevent you from making more of a mess on your floors. You can use the vinegar method mentioned above to help with this.

Mopping your floor doesn’t mean you have to leave behind a nasty residue on it. With the tips above, you can be sure that your floors will not only be free from stickiness, but shine. A natural cleaner will help to prevent strong odors. It will also eliminate the pesky stickiness that can linger around when you’re done cleaning.

Vibranelle Fiber Gummies are a hit with my Family!

I was quite impressed with these and I like that they are gluten-free and made in the U.S. They are really easy to digest and I also like the flavor and that there is no bad aftertaste. I would recommend these because I also feel that they are safe to take and love the fact that they are gummies! I like that they come in two delicious flavors which are Orange and Mixed Berry. There is 5mg Fiber + 20 calories per serving. Sometimes it is tough to have enough Fiber in your diet so this is a great way to make sure you are getting enough Fiber. This really is a great source of Dietary Fiber and I also like that they are safe and made in the USA, from a FDA registered Facility. 

You can find them on Amazon.com.
