If you already know me, you know I have a bit of an addiction to entering sweepstakes and contests.  That’s how I was introduced to this amazing product!  Don’t let the stigma of sweepers fool you, we’re not out to just win free stuff!  More often than not, we find something we really love and end up buying it again and again.  This particular product will likely be one of those products for me!

If you love chocolate, and sweets, but you REALLY want to cut down on the amount of sugar you’re putting in your body this is a fantastic alternative.  These really hit the spot for me, and they are a pretty decent size too!  One bar is about the size of a regular sized

Snickers bar, but I actually feel like it tastes sweeter, and more filling than that or any other candy bar.  It’s jam packed with Dried Cranberries, Raw Pistachios, & Raw Almonds.

Normally after every meal I need that sweet little treat, my mom is the same way, some people think we are weird!  A month’s supply of these goes a long way for me, as I’ve been snapping them in half any time I want that sweet little indulgence.

You can order your own JoJo’s Chocolate Bark by visiting JoJosChocolate.com.  You can purchase one single bag for $13.99, which averages out to $2 a bar, which honestly isn’t that bad!  Or if you Join Team JOJO’s Autoship program you can get a bag for as little as $11.89 (or just $1.79 a bar!).

If you’re really in love with JoJo’s Chocolate Bark, you can order it in bigger shipments, as large as a month’s worth for $47.99, making it just $1.71 per bar and you’ll receive 4 bags! You can even pick how often you want your shipment to come in, monthly, every 2 months or even every 3 months.  On your 5th Shipment, you get this cool sweatshirt too!  I happened to win one of them alongside my month supply of these awesome treats!

I’m just finishing up my first bag of these delicious healthier than the alternative treats, but I see myself coming back for more in the future!  I’m so glad I had the opportunity to try these.

I did not receive this product from JoJo’s.  I received it from an alternate source that partnered with them for an Instagram Giveaway and I just  happened to win at random.  I reviewed this product here of my own free will, and did not receive any compensation from JoJo’s or any other source for doing so.

So My Amazon Account Was Closed…

It was only for a little more than a week due to a glitch in the system, or a hack, or to be completely honest I’m not sure.  I don’t like it, whatever it is, and starting my own site for my reviews instead of posting them on Amazon seems like the best option.

What makes me angry the most is I received the above email more than a week after my account was shut down, and when I called them to ask them why my account was closed they said that I had closed it.  That was complete nonsense, why would I close my account down when I had orders still processing and Amazon Gift Cards still attached to my account?  Complete. Nonsense.  Notice below their reinstatement to my account, a completely different reasoning as to why they previously closed my account.

AmazonReinstate

Covering their butts it seems.  Although there was no unusual activity to any items I purchased, they were all purchased by me!  They haven’t given any compensation for anything in regarding to this matter either, which is very disconcerting.  I paid for a full month of Amazon Prime services, and had to go over a week without being able to even log into my account, and they think it’s okay.  There are hundreds of angry people about this, some of which even had fraudulent activity on their credit cards due to this matter.  It just makes me very upset that a company of this size can just pretend that nothing ever happened, and so many people are left in the dark and expected to ignore the fact that their private information was at risk.  What are your thoughts on this?

About Me

 Hi, my name is Jennifer…

I’m a proud mother of two beautiful children, Connor and Elena.  I’m also the mother of a beautiful fur-baby named Bear (his real name is Barrett but I’ve called him Little Bear since he’s come home, that it’s just stuck).  I’ve been with my teenage sweetheart for sixteen years now, and I’m pretty sure I drive him as crazy as he drives me!

Why am I creating this blog?

I decided I wanted a place for my reviews and my thoughts.  I also wanted to include my children in this, because my son is always talking about his favorite YouTube channels, and how he wants to do something like this, and what better way to do it than together!  He’s 6-years old currently, will be 7 very shortly and has some social anxieties.  He has a lot of opinions about things though, and I’d love for him to be able to express them in his own way, so I thought this might be a good outlet for that.

What am I hoping to accomplish?

Well honestly it’s just the beginning, so I’m hoping to have some fun, and enjoy myself.  I’ve run a book review blog in the past, before having any children and I know it can be a lot of work.  I don’t intend on reviewing any books here, other than children’s books with my kids because of how time consuming that really is.  At first I plan to just continue reviewing products that I’ve been purchasing on my own, and see where that road takes us.

What are my hobbies outside of blogging?

I’m a stay at home mom, so I like to keep myself busy.  Other than watching cartoons and doing crafts with my 4-year old daughter Elena during the day, I enjoy entering sweepstakes & contests (yes, I’ve won quite a few!), couponing (imagine extreme couponer, yep that’s me!), collecting movies, and pretty much anything that involves spending time with my children.  You may see some posts about some of my hobbies here in the future between my reviews.  I may even throw in a contest or two of my own because I love to give back!
