Product Review: Bridge Lane Wine

About a month ago I received an email from BzzAgent (FINALLY) for a new campaign.
After reading the initial email I clicked the button “I Want In” because I was STOKED, I don’t drink much but when I do its wine! BONUS  it’s from Longggg Guuuyyyy LanD (Long Island for those of you who don’t get it) which is nice since I will be supporting local Industry/Business. They have their own farm-winery and prefer to do things their way and I liked them just from reading their story on their website, before I even got my wine. #craftwine #farmtobox
So basically I got 4 bottles of wine in a box, BzzAgent gave me a $30 Coupon, at the end of the day I paid $10.00 for $40.00 worth of wine #GotADiscount

I am no wine connoisseur so please don’t expect a review where I babble about the difference between this wine and that wine or some detailed hob knobby review where I state the hints and notes etc lol, I am doing some research so I can learn for myself so that I can somewhat enlighten those of you reading this that may not have any wine knowledge either.  I am also about to get a small group together to do a day trip to Bridge Lane Wine/Lieb Cellars Tasting Room in either Cutchogue or Mattituck.

I tried the White Blend. I normally drink Pinot Grigio so this was a no brainer as far as choice goes.  I loved the immediate smoothness followed quickly by that bite I am familiar with.  I definitely noticed right away something that reminds me of some type of citrus fruit but not like a regular orange or lemon.  I keep trying to figure it out ( yea that is what I have been telling everyone each time I pour a glass lol)  I really keep getting the aroma of fresh cut grass or fresh herbs or something I don’t know is that a real flavor/sent wine thing? Lol Sorry for my inadequate knowledge !

I really enjoyed the wine and so did others I shared it with, I’ll update this post with some pictures once I get my phone cloud problem thing fixed.  I have a couple I downloaded some early in the campaign and a video too I’m uploading now , it features my Aunt Lisa whom I love dearly and is my go to guru on boxed wine 🙂

Now that my box is almost done I will get over to a few local liquor stores to see if any of them carry Bridge Lane.  That leads me to the next part of the BzzAgent campaign where I talk to owners/managers about carrying the Bridge Lane Wines if they aren’t already.   And thanks to Bridge Lane Wine and BzzAgent for this awesome opportunity 🙂

If you message me I can share a $10.00 off coupon with you through BzzAgent And Facebook so you can try them today!!!

Product Review: Truvia Natural Sweetener

As previously noted in the Freebie Alert I got this Free Sample from Freeflys.com And I got two of them at different times which means I mistakenly requested it twice.

I have been trying to change my diet and live a healthier lifestyle so I requested this sample to see if I could find an alternative to sugar to use at home and at work. I like certain things really sweet like my coffee, tea (hot and iced), certain cereals and oatmeal, cookies etc
Growing up around Sweet & Low and Equal which give an overly sweet but bitter disgusting taste in whatever you use it in , it also has an aftertaste.  Splenda has been the only other product I have tried like this.  It does the job but it still has a weird taste and you know it is not real sugar.  And I feel like I use a lot of it to get the taste I want.

I tried a half of a packet which is about a teaspoon, in a bowl of Cheerios where I would normally use 4 or 5 teaspoons of regular sugar. And I was very surprised, I could taste the sweetness but it was not overpowering and although I knew it wasn’t real sugar I didn’t care – it served it’s purpose and I was satisfied.

Today I decided to use the 3 full packets I had left to make some home made iced tea since iced tea is my go to drink besides coffee and water lol.  I used a 1/1/1 recipe: 1 teabag to 1 cup of water to 1 tablespoon of sugar (or 3 packets of Truvia).  Normally I would use about 6 tablespoons of real sugar. I was definitely pleasantly surprised.  The tea was sweet but without any fake tasting sweetness like I would get from Equal or Splenda and there was no lingering aftertaste on my tongue.   And even after adding a few more ice cubes I figured it would be watered down and bland yet it still had a great sweet flavor.

I will definitely be using my coupon tomorrow after work to grab some Truvia spoonable so I can’t start making my own iced tea at home that will be better for me and it will save me money as well.  And I can’t wait to try some of the recipes as well.  Once I do I’ll post pics or video on my social media and be sure to put an update here with the link.
