Detroit Wing Company menu

My oh my! There are so many different wing sauces to choose from at Detroit Wing Company. This wing place offers up 17 different sauces ranging from mild to super spicy and everything in between. You can choose from either Classic Wings or Boneless Wings. My little family of 3 stopped in for a late lunch and we went with the 24-piece Classic Wings and we were able to choose 4 different flavors.

The Detroit Wing Company has some incredible wings but there is a lot more to their menu, so let’s explore it a bit!

They have chicken tenders on the menu, along with their DWC mac & cheese, fries with your choice of wing sauce, and they also have poutine! The poutine gravy is actually cooked for a whole 24 hours before serving so that you can have that amazing gravy flavor.

Detroit Wing Company Flavors

Here is the part of the menu that gets super fun to order from. Here is where you decide which of these 17 wing sauces will be going on your order of wings at Detroit Wing Company. They have so many interesting sauces to choose from, it is almost difficult to narrow it down here! They all sound excellent.

For those of you who like it on the mild side there are wing sauces like Butter Cheese, Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, Honey BBQ, and more. For the spicy thrillseekers at Detroit Wing Company you can go with the Calypso Heat (which is their hottest wing sauce!), Sweet Heat, Hot Garlic, and Habanero Ranch.

Happy Hour at Detroit Wing Company

If you love to chow down on boneless wings make sure you swing by DWC between the hours of 3-5pm. You can score yourself some boneless wings at 40% off. This is a great deal that is just too good to pass up!

What my family ordered

We went with a 24-piece order of wings and were able to choose from 4 different sauces for that size order. We went with Garlic Parmesan, Asian Orange, Butter Cheese, and Carolina Gold BBQ. It was hard to narrow our choices down to only 4 since they all sounded so excellent! I think we definitely made the right choices here though!

The Garlic Parmesan wings were hands-down my favorite of the four flavors that we gave a whirl! The Garlic Parmesan wings have a white creamy sauce and have a VERY potent flavor of garlic and also some Parmesan cheese. I was having a foodgasm at the table with that particular flavor and I swear to you, no doubt I looked like a dirty pig tearing into these wings. This flavor was SUPER sloppy but I do say that in the nicest way. The next time I stop in at the Detroit Wing Company my family will definitely be ordering that flavor once again.

Butter Cheese was quite the interesting wing flavor! I will say that I have never in my life had a wing quite like that. The Butter Cheese is a very mild wing and it will remind you of garlic crust from a cheesy pizza! Though similar to ingredients to the Garlic Parmesan (garlic and Parmesan), the Butter Cheese is more of a fraternal twin.

Asian Orange was a delightful flavor that we also enjoyed. This Asian flavored wing has a very strong taste of orange to it. My daughter, Chloe who is 9, was not a fan of this particular flavor. She did say that the orange flavor was a bit overpowering. No worries though, my husband and I did find this flavor appealing and would happily order this flavor again.

The Carolina Gold BBQ flavor at Detroit Wing Company is a great choice if you enjoy BBQ wings with a not too sweet and not too spicy flavor. This flavor is smack dab right in the middle of the flavor board.

Final thoughts

I hope that my Detroit Wing Company review will inspire you to head on over to 1 of their 5 locations so you can give these wings a whirl! I usually go to Buffalo Wild Wings when that wing craving hits me but after trying out the wings at DWC, that will now be our go-to place. My little family of 3 was highly pleased with our first ever visit to the Eastpointe location. We also really appreciated the friendly staff. We are looking forward to exploring the menu a bit more on our next visit to the Detroit Wing Company.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers REVIEW – The Hidden Gem On Gratiot With The Best Burgers In Town

Here is a little bit of background on me and Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers. They opened up their first burger joint nearly a decade ago in Mount Clemens. My little family lived only a hop, skip, and a jump away when they had that location. I actually used to push my daughter over there in her stroller and cut up a Seeburger’s Cheeseburger for her to eat (she is 9 now and still a huge fan!). My family has been dining at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers since day one and we keep on coming back because you will not find a better cheeseburger slider around in a huge radius! This is our go-to destination for the ultimate “cheat day” meal. There is just something about Seeburger’s! They truly do work at slapping a smile upon your face and making your belly feel happiness and joy. So today I am sharing my Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers review on the blog.

You might not have ever heard about Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers and I hate to break it to you but you have been missing out big time! These addictive little burgers are pure bliss to chow down on, and will have you keep coming back for more! I think of Seeburger’s as a bit of a hidden gem. It is tucked away on Gratiot and nestled next to a party store and only a couple of buildings away from White Castle, another slider destination. Bold move huh to have a slider shop in such close proximity to another slider spot, but it works! Todd Seeburger is the owner and he has his faithful following of slider connoisseurs. I am reaching out to you today in hopes of spreading the word about this burger joint because I believe it is important that you know about it if you love a good burger and a fantastic deal on them.

Here is our spread of food

My dad and I stopped into Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers on Gratiot for lunch. When you step into this location you can feel a good vibe as soon as you walk through the door. This location has car and cruising memorabilia on display. Gratiot is a cruising destination of many during the warmer summer months in Michigan. Cruising has been happening on Gratiot for decades and my dad is one of the original cruisers from way back in the day.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers FAMOUS Sliders

At Seeburger’s their claim to fame is definitely due to the large success of their cheeseburger sliders. These are some very satisfying little morsels of heaven! You can purchase single sliders for $1.65, or you can purchase a combo for $7.07, buy a half dozen for $7.99, or purchase an entire dozen for $14.99.

 

Here are some photos of their famous cheeseburger sliders. Enjoy!!

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers is more than just sliders

This Give It A Whirl Girl blog is all about trying new things and giving them a whirl. Since I have tried their cheeseburger sliders a hundred dozen times, today I will be sharing my experience with the Big Clem Burger and the Phat Gratiot Burger. My dad and I stopped in for lunch and today I am sharing my experience of that satisfying and deeply filling lunch.

I am including the Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers menu down below so you can scope out all of their fantastic offerings.

Big Burgers at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers

The Big Clem

The Big Clem burger features two hamburger patties with American cheese, lettuce, Thousand Island dressing, and then this juicy burger is topped off with an onion ring the size of a donut!

I enjoyed this Big Clem Burger big time, guys!! I have never in my life had a burger quite like this. That gigantic onion ring that topped off my burger really hit the spot! The thousand island dressing on this cheeseburger really gave off a Big Mac vibe, only better. I am not a patron of McDonald’s… like ever! This Big Clem Burger puts the Big Mac to shame. At Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers, you get fresh beef, never frozen on your burger. You really can tell the difference. The owner, Todd Seeburger, has a lot of pride about his burgers and he uses only the best ingredients to keep his customers and loyal following happy.

The Phat Gratiot Burger

The Phat Gratiot Burger at Seeburger’s is a double stacked hamburger with pepperjack cheese, BBQ sauce, bacon, and frizzy onions.

This right here is the burger that my dad tried out. My father was ooo’ing and ahh’ing the entire time he ate this burger and he really tried to take his time so he could savor each and every bite of it. This burger earned a spot on my to-do list. l have never had a burger with bbq sauce on it before but I think the combo of bbq sauce and pepper jack cheese might just be a match made in heaven.

There are plenty of sides that you can order at Seeburger’s. I have tried their basket of seasoned fries plenty of times and I can attest to the fact that their fries are outrageously great! The onion rings here are the biggest I have ever seen in my life. I also highly recommend the deep-fried mushrooms here if you are a mushroom-lover like me! Mmm mmm good! Pickle chips and mozzarella cheese sticks are also a great choice.

A little Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers nostalgia!

I am including a few photos below to showcase just how much my family loves this place! My daughter, Chloe, is now 9 years old and she is a huge fan! My family has been alongside Seeburger’s since day one when they had the Mount Clemens location. I knew as soon as I tried these the first time, that Seeburger’s would be a huge success.

How-To Groupon Like A Boss In Macomb County! How I Spent 3 Groupons In One Day And Had A Very Frugal Day!

I will admit that I do check the Groupon site often for good deals. If I see a good deal that is just way too good to pass up, then you better believe it, I will grab that Groupon! Yesterday I managed to have quite a frugal day with 3 Groupons. I had a fun-filled day with some good sweets and treats, and a dinner to go along with it! Groupons geared towards dining are always a great way to experience something new and give it a whirl! These Groupons allow you to enjoy food and drink at a deeply discounted price.

This Groupon post is going to cover restaurants that are in the Southeast area of Michigan. I will share with you how you can score some great deals at these Michigan establishments. I am sharing how I Groupon’ed like a boss and had an incredibly delicious FRUGAL day!

How Groupon Works

Groupon is very easy to use. For the purpose of this post, I will only be sharing how to use the dining Groupons. There are many other types of Groupons available though! You simply head on over to the Groupon site or download the app. Choose the LOCAL tab at the top and find the Food & Drink category. Click onto that food & drink category and see what local Groupon deals are happening in your area.

How to get your Groupon

We just recently used a Buoy 12 Groupon this past weekend so I will use that as an example here. Buoy 12 is located in my area of St. Clair Shores, MI. They have two different offers available. One of those offers is for 2 people to receive a $25 voucher (currently sold out but keep checking back) or you can purchase a $50 voucher for four people at the discounted price of $30. So for $30 you get $50 worth of food on your next visit to Buoy 12. That is a discounted price of 40% off.

At time of publication (5/20/2019) you can use the Groupon coupon code SAVE3 to save even more!

Groupon coupon codes

BUT you can save even more if you have a Groupon coupon code, which is often available! Be sure to always check for Groupon coupon codes prior to checking out.

How to redeem your Groupon for dining

There are two ways you can present your Groupon when you are ready to redeem it. You can either print out the voucher on your printer at home OR you can download the Groupon app and show the server the Groupon on your mobile device.

Our first Groupon we spent was at Starbucks

I got quite lucky with the Starbucks Groupon. The Starbucks Groupons are only by invite-only. I spent $5 for the Groupon and ended up with $10 to spend at Starbucks.

Here is what I purchased at Starbucks: 1 S’mores Frappucino and 1 Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappucino.

I paid only $1.13 for two Frappucinos out-of-pocket. The Groupon was $5. So the total cost was $6.13. Not too shabby for two rather expensive frozen drinks! Starbucks is always just a fancy splurge item for me, so I appreciated that Groupon offer!

Second Groupon we used was at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse

Sagano Japanese Steakhouse currently has two different locations on Groupon: the Warren Japanese Steakhouse and the Clarkston Japanese Steakhouse location. We visited the Warren location so I will be reviewing that experience here.

Read the fine print

Please always read the fine print on Groupons! Sagano Japanese Steakhouse is a shining example of that! For example, you can not use a Groupon at Sagano within 24 hours of purchasing the Groupon. Also, there are menu restrictions on what exactly the Groupon can be used for. We found out the hard way these two things!

What we ordered at Sagano

At Sagano Japanese Steakhouse my husband and I ordered a cucumber sushi roll (please not that you can’t use the Groupon for sushi rolls here. We paid separate for the sushi), and we ordered the chicken teriyaki entree and the beef teriyaki entree. My husband, my daughter Chloe who is 9, and I shared the 2 entrees and that was plenty for the 3 of us. Our entrees came with a soup and a salad, which was wonderful and delicious! We were very pleased with our teriyaki dishes. They had had a great flavor and the portion size was perfect!

How we got the most out of our Sagano Groupon

We had the $30 Groupon for Sagano. The beef teriyaki was $16.95 and the chicken teriyaki entree was $12.95. Our $30 Sagano Groupon covered the cost of the two teriyaki entrees. Our cucumber sushi roll was $3.50 and then we had to leave a tip. I gave the waitress a great tip because she was absolutely awesome, I must say! We really felt that the service at Sagano was excellent.

The Sagano Groupon is PERFECT for HIBACHI!

The Sagano Japanese Steakhouse Groupon is perfect for giving the hibachi grill a whirl. This image below is of my scallop hibachi dish that I got on a previous visit to Sagano. My family of 3 were quite impressed with our hibachi dinners. When we dined at the hibachi grill on that visit we had a fantastic chef. He had a great sense of humor and was very entertaining. Of course there were big flames and an onion volcano and my daughter really enjoyed the theatrics of the Japanese chef that cooked our meals.

Here is the hibachi scallops at Sagano Japanese Steakhouse. You can use the Groupon for the hibachi grill.

And finally, for dessert, we used a Menchie’s Groupon

We are big fans of Menchie’s here in the Give It A Whirl Girl household so we could not pass this deal up! The Menchie’s Groupon is valid for two different locations: Warren and Shelby Township. The Menchie’s Groupon allows frozen yogurt enthusiasts (like me!) to purchase bundles of $5 Menchie’s vouchers for a discounted price.

2 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $7

or 4 $5 Menchie’s vouchers are $14

Please be aware (and I found this out the hard way too because I skimmed over the fine print) that you can only use 1 $5 Menchie’s Groupon per visit!

Want to learn more about Menchie’s?

Read my Menchie’s Review on the blog!

If you are looking for a fun place to take the family for dessert, Menchie’s is the place to be! You are the creator of your frozen yogurt treat. Choose from several different frozen yogurt flavors and then top it all off at the unlimited toppings bar! Menchie’s charges by the ounce of your dessert creation, so if you want to keep the cost down don’t go too wild and crazy and keep your dessert down to a small or moderate size.

Pro Tip For Groupon! That is IF you are in the Southeast Michigan area

I am going to also let you know about one other FABULOUS GROUPON if you are local! That Groupon would be for Inyo Restaurant in Ferndale. If you are a sushi connoisseur like me you will absolutely love Inyo! You can see even more photos of this Asian fusion restaurant in my FAQ on the blog. Inyo Restaurant is currently in the top spot for my number one dining destination. You can score a tremendous deal to Inyo Ferndale on Groupon!

Final thoughts

I hope this post about Groupon dining will inspire you to give Groupon a whirl! There are so many restaurants that you can try out at a discounted price. This is a wonderful way to give some new establishments a whirl! My little family of 3 has discovered a ton of great places with Groupons and there are so many other places that we cannot wait to try! I have my eye on the Le Crepe Groupon.

Groupon is soooooo much more than just dining at restaurants! You can go scoop up some goods and take a trip with Groupon getaways!

My first impressions of ButcherBox

I received my first delivery on Wednesday, May 1st. My order was shipped out the day before, so my first shipment of meat did arrive the next day. I was really happy with the speed of delivery. I could not wait to see what was sent to me in my first box. Opening up this package gave me flashbacks of Xmas morning!

My first ButcherBox arrived quickly and in great shape!

I opened up my first ButcherBox shipment and everything was packed really well. All of my meats were frozen solid and the box was insulated quite well.

What was inside my ButcherBox

Right off the bat, I could see that I did receive one meat that I was really hoping for and that was my chuck roast. I was hoping to make another Mississippi roast next week and the gorgeous hunk of meat that was sent will be absolutely perfect for that dish! The chuck roast that I received in my ButcherBox came in at 36 oz and it will be the perfect size to feed my family. This piece of meat was quite honestly, the most impressive looking beef roast I ever had to pleasure to cook with. I usually get my meat from the grocery store. The grocery store that I shop at has this cut of beef on sale often at buy-one-get-one-free but it never looks as nice as what ButcherBox has to offer!

I also received two 10 oz ribeye steaks, which will be perfect for a special Sunday dinner this week. Ribeye is my favorite steak cut of meat. It is a very simple steak to cook with simple ingredients. I create an herbed ghee mixture and rub it on the meat and cook it for a few minutes per side in a cast iron pan. I cook my steaks medium-rare and I am really thrilled to give ButcherBox’s meat a whirl.

Everything that I received looks completely and totally super duper fresh! I was really impressed with the gorgeous red hue of all the meat and the marbling on everything.

The other cuts of beef that I received in my first ButcherBox were the following: 2 lbs of grass-fed ground beef (in one pound packages), 2 6 oz flat iron steaks, 2 packages of sirloin tips (1 lb packages), and a package of ButcherBox’s very own bacon!

Here is what I did with meat from my ButcherBox

ButcherBox Chuck Roast

For the chuck roast that was sent to me from ButcherBox, I immediately knew what I wanted to create with it… my Paleo Mississippi Roast. This is a really awesome recipe to use with a nice piece of chuck roast meat. The recipe tells you how to create your own ranch seasoning rub for the meat and how to create this set-it-and-forget-it beef dish. The chuck roast that I received from ButcherBox was the best chuck roast I had ever seen. I had the most perfect red hue and great marbling on it. This chuck roast did not have much fat on it and the meat came out extremely juicy and tender!

This ButcherBox chuck roast sure made for one memorable meal with lots of ooo’s and ahh’s at the dinner table!

ButcherBox Ribeye Steaks

Sometimes simplicity is best! For the ButcherBox ribeye steaks, I simply cooked them in a cast iron pan with a bit of oil, salt, and pepper. This was a very easy approach but it results in big flavor and a juicy, unforgettable meal. I served my ButcherBox ribeye alongside some ButcherBox bacon-wrapped asparagus. The ButcherBox bacon was the perfect addition to this paleo, primal meal!

Steak & eggs

Here is another simple way to use your ButcherBox meat. My husband has never had steak and eggs so I decided to serve up this for dinner last week. We call it brinner when we eat breakfast for dinner. It doesn’t get any easier than this folks! To cook the ButcherBox flat-iron steak I simply warmed up some avocado oil (you can use olive oil too) in a cast iron pan and seasoned the steak with some steak seasoning on both sides. I got a nice sear on each side of the steak, let it rest a few minutes, and then sliced and served.

Can you see that I like my steak still mooing? lol!

Final thoughts on my first ButcherBox shipment

I am really thrilled that I had the opportunity to review this subscription box and give these top-quality meats a try in the Give It A Whirl Girl kitchen. I hope that you enjoyed this ButcherBox review and that it will inspire you to give it a whirl soon! ButcherBox was perfect for our small family and we completely and totally enjoyed our shipment of beef, and trust me when I say that we enjoyed it! It was love at first bite! It’s not hard to see that ButcherBox only ships out the finest of meat. Every single meal that had ButcherBox incorporated into it had tender, juicy, and flavorful beef! Certainly was the best beef we ever had and it sure beats the stuff that you get at your local grocery store.

What’s new at Jordan’s Skinny Mixes?

Here are a few products that are new that I think you might love!

Mermaid

The mermaid syrup is a stunning blue hue and probably not the best idea to put in your cup of coffee. Instead, get creative with this Mermaid syrup. Use it on ice-cream sundaes, cocktails, champagne, lemonade, mixed with sparkling water, or even try it in your next smoothie!

Jordan’s Mermaid syrup has the flavor of: tropical citrus, coconut, a little pineapple and a lot of magic.


Unicorn

The Unicorn syrup from Jordan’s has the flavor of creamy frosting, tart blue raspberry and a hint of cotton candy. The Unicorn syrup is one to unleash your creativity with. I believe this flavor would make an excellent nice-cream (vegan “ice-cream” made with bananas).

Final Thoughts

I believe that you will all be impressed with the flavors and the quality of Jordan’s Skinny Mixes and Jordan’s Skinny Syrup. I am pretty thrilled that I came across these products on Amazon while I was searching for some sugar-free syrup options for my morning cup of coffee. I have tried out the sugar-free Torani syrups and felt as though they had a bit of an aftertaste. For me, that is certainly not the case with this brand. These syrups all have the perfect amount of sweetness without the calories and without the aftertaste.

My Extreme Pizza Review

This was not our first time at this Grosse Pointe pizza place. We have been here several times before. We live one city over in St. Clair Shores and the little extra drive is worth it to get to this unique Grosse Pointe pizza establishment.

There are so many excellent choices here and I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them! Extreme Pizza is known to consistently serve up pizzas that do not disappoint!

Tasty Ice Cream REVIEW – Dig Into 4 Fun & Unique Limited Edition Ice Cream Pints From Tasty!

New product alert! And this new product is also a limited edition item! Today I am sharing my Tasty ice cream review with you. I just recently discovered that my local Kroger store carries these new ice cream pints from Tasty and they are available in four fun and very delightful flavors. Tasty ice cream pints feature some super-duper creamy ice cream with the addition of unique mix-ins. The flavor combinations of these Tasty ice cream limited edition flavors are not only creative but make for one memorable ice cream experience! Tasty ice cream succeeded in slapping a big fat smile onto my face with these sweet treats!

These Tasty ice creams are the perfect treat for your next indulgent “cheat day”. I often opt for the healthier, better-for-you ice creams like Enlightened and Halo Top but sometimes you just have to give into to that sweet tooth and have a bit of sugar. No sweat… just get back on track with your diet and lifestyle the next day. YOLO (you only live once) so why not just give in to the temptation and enjoy that pint of ice cream?!?!?!!! Remember my blog tagline is “Eat Healthy So You Can Have Dessert” so just keep that in mind ok?

The 4 Limited Edition Tasty Ice Cream Flavors

Vanilla Galaxy Twist

This flavor here is for the rainbow candy sprinkles enthusiast (me!!). The Vanilla Galaxy Twist is going to blast you off into euphoria while chowing down on this pint. The ice cream flavor also has silky blue frosting swirls with a vanilla ice cream base. In this out-of-this-world delicious ice cream pint, you are also going to enjoy some caramel stars, chocolate chunks, and cosmic crunch. Tasty really went all out with this fun flavor! I don’t think ice cream gets any better than this folks!

Peanut Butter S’mores Smash

With the Peanut Butter S’mores Smash flavor of Tasty ice cream this is where two flavors collide and marry into one hell of an awesome flavor! The ice cream itself has a peanut butter flavor and inside you are going to experience some marshmallowy goodness and miniature peanut butter cups. And to take this flavor to a whole other level you will also enjoy a sprinkling of graham cracker crunchies and a fudge swirl mixed throughout.

This unique flavor features a white chocolate ice cream combined with raspberry ribbons and swirls along with some get this… CHUNKS OF CAKE! Oh my goodness gracious! I kinda hate to say it but this ice cream pint is one that I would honestly hoard just for my own sweet self. I am head over heels in love with anything that is raspberry flavored and when you throw some cake into the mix? BLISS! Pure bliss!

Tasty Ice Cream Nutrition Facts

As you can see in the nutrition facts label below this is an indulgent treat. The nutrition facts vary by flavor. The one shown in the photo below is for the Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Crunch flavor. If you give in to your desires and lose control AND eat that whole pint you are going to set yourself back a whopping 710 calories. Might just have to run a marathon to burn that all off. Am I right?

One serving contains 25mg of sugar. If you eat the whole pint you will be consuming a massive amount of sugar, a total of 65mg. As mentioned earlier in this post, these ice cream pints are reserved for a cheat day treat. It is ok to have a sugary treat every now and then. I believe in eating with balance. What I do is eat healthy and clean most of the time and then allow myself to indulge in a not-so-good-for-you treat. I don’t want to deprive myself of the fun things in life (like ice cream).

Final thoughts on Tasty ice cream

Gotta say these four limited edition ice cream pints were thoroughly enjoyed by my little family of 3! I truly hope that my Tasty ice cream review inspires you to hunt these down and give them a whirl! I’m going to give some mad props to Tasty for offering up these creative ice cream flavors. I also really enjoyed the delicious creaminess and texture of the ice creams. I am looking forward to Tasty releasing some more ice cream pints. Pretty sure I will be a regular buyer of this brand.

It is so hard to resist eating the entire pint all by your lone self because they are just that good!

If you are a regular reader over here at Give It A Whirl Girl, you can probably tell by now that one of my major weaknesses is ice cream. I love to review it and I love to blog about it. And finally, I love to eat all of it! In the near future, I will be reviewing more ice creams since summer is fast approaching and I can’t think of a better sweet treat to eat than ice cream when it is warm out.

MengK 1500W High-Speed Professional Blender REVIEW & A Dragon Fruit Smoothie RECIPE

Today I would love to share my experience with you that I recently had with my new blender in this MengK blender review. This blender is quite simple to use and it is built like a professional blender. When I received my blender I was astonished by how professional the model looked and I was excited to give it a whirl with a dragon fruit smoothie bowl recipe. My hopes for this blender were that it would be capable of blending up frozen fruit because I am a huge smoothie fan and every blender I have ever owned prior was a big letdown to me. Keep reading this MengK blender review to find out how it performed in my test.

First impression of the MengK 1500W blender

Let’s kick off this MengK blender review with my first thoughts when I unboxed the blender. My first impression with this blender was the massive footprint it has on my countertop! This blender is a beast! Now, this can either be a positive or a negative for you. If you don’t have much storage space in your kitchen or home this blender might be an issue. This MengK blender couldn’t be any simpler to use either! If you look at the blender you will see one dial on the face of the blender and this determines the speed at which you will operate your blender. Big tasks call for dialing up on the knob for more power and speed.

What can the MengK blender do?

If you are in the market for a blender that is versatile, MengK has you covered with this blender!

My experience with the MengK blender

The first experiment with this high-speed blender was to see how well it would process and blend frozen fruit. I placed two frozen bananas, a cup of frozen dragon fruit, and a bit of milk in the blending cup. I was really excited to try this out because I have not had much success with frozen fruit in any blender I have ever owned.

The capability of blending frozen fruit is top priority to me. I need a blender that can do this.

I turned the blender onto medium with the dial. I then turned it on. The blender was loud and I could tell it had a powerful motor. The blades efficiently chopped up my frozen fruit and blended it up with the almond milk. After a few short moments, I had a delicious smoothie bowl waiting for me.

I performed one other smoothie test with my MengK blender. For that test, I used a fresh banana, frozen dragon fruit, and frozen mango with a splash of some unsweetened nut milk. The blender performed wonderfully and as expected. In a very short time, without any hesitation, I had a delicious, tall smoothie waiting for me!

Overall, I am quite pleased with this MengK blender and I am excited to try more smoothie recipes with it.

The MengK blender is simple to clean

Final thoughts

The MengK blender is a lot of bang for your buck! For this price point, you are getting quite the powerful blender. I am hoping that this MengK blender will stand the test of time. I have a great feeling that it will be outperforming the last blender that I owned prior to this one. I took a chance with this off-brand name and I am very pleased with it.

It is not a Vitamix or a Blendtec but for the price you are paying for this one you are getting a powerhouse blender. If you are like me and dream of owning a fancy blender like a Vitamix, this blender makes a great clone of one and you will save yourself a ton of money going with the MengK.

CBD Only REVIEW – Edibles – CBD Hard Candy, CBD Caramel, and CBD Gummies

I just recently had a chance to give CBD Only edibles a whirl and I am so happy to share my experience with you today in this CBD Only review. I have tried CBD gummies plenty of times but this was my first ever experience with CBD hard candies and caramels. I love my gummies, like really really love them and I enjoy taking them but it is always fun to mix it up and try something different and new for a change. That is where CBD Only comes in with their range of edibles available. I had the opportunity to try some CBD edbiles from CBD Only and that includes their CBD hard candy, CBD caramel, and CBD gummy bears.

What Is CBD & How CBD Can Help You!

There is a plethora of information available online about what exactly CBD is. I highly suggest taking a moment to read up on CBD if you are a curious first time user.

The second most prominent compound in cannabis, CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with non-euphoric, non-toxic, and anti-oxidants effects used for relief to a wide range of health disorders.

Did you see the part about CBD being non-psychoactive? It is indeed true. When I consume CBD I do not feel high. There is no high attached to consuming CBD oil and that is what makes it so wonderful to me. I am not against marijuana but it just isn’t for me. I have tried many different types of marijuana and me and the THC just don’t jive! It isn’t for me. But I became aware of the benefits of CBD recently and I was intrigued that there are so many benefits and I wanted to see how it could help me.

How I use CBD in my life – A little bit of my story

For me personally, I choose to use CBD to help with my ongoing battle with anxiety and depression. I have dealt with these problems in life for as long as I can remember. CBD helps alleviate these health issues for me. CBD does not make me high but what it does is CBD helps balance me out. When I feel anxiety or depression creeping in on me I use CBD to erase it all away.

Right now my primary use of CBD products is to help me battle through benzodiazepine withdrawal. I have been on Klonopin for seven years (prescribed by a doctor and never abused). I am currently almost done with my taper that I started in early October and I will be jumping off the med soon. I switched over to Valium for a smoother taper and I am currently on a dose that is virtually nothing (0.5mg of Valium).

Some people say to avoid CBD during benzo withdrawal and others will tell you that CBD is a miracle product for them. I am part of the latter. CBD is truly a miracle product for me. It aids in evaporating and dissipating withdrawal symptoms. Benzos are extremely hard to come off of and many will even venture to say that they are harder to kick than heroin. I feel grateful that I have CBD products on-hand and available to me to help me get off this hellacious medication that I was prescribed for way too damn long!

CBD Only Edibles information

With any CBD products, it is always advised to consult with a physician before consuming.

CBD edibles are not the most direct method of consuming CBD. Because it takes a bit of time for them to be metabolized into the bloodstream, it can take anywhere from an hour or two to start working.

The amount of time changed based on what else you’ve eaten, your metabolic rate, body weight, and other personal factors.

Dosing ranges widely based on many personal lifestyle and health factors. The recommended dose could be anywhere from 1-6mg per 10 pounds of body weight.

CBD Only Review of Edibles I tried

I received the following items from CBD Only for review purposes: Paradise 10mg CBD hard candies, Paradise 10mg CBD caramels, and Paradise CBD 10mg gummies. I really enjoyed each and every one of these CBD edibles.

After some experimentation, I found that my sweet spot with dosage is 30-50mg. Please note that dosages will vary from person-to-person. What works for me may not work for you.

CBD Hard Candies by Paradise 4-Pack

These CBD hard candies come in four wonderful flavors: watermelon, raspberry, tangerine, and apple. They are each 10mg of CBD. This dosage is perfect for me when I just need a tad bit of CBD. 10mg is a fairly small dosage. It might be a great starting point for someone who is going to give CBD a whirl for the first time. I think you will enjoy the taste of these CBD hard candies. What you do with these CBD candies is just place them in your mouth and let them dissolve if you want maximum potency.

These are available for $7.95. You can think of it as $2 a dose. That is a small price to pay for relief!

CBD Caramels by Paradise 4-Pack

Never ever had a CBD caramel so this was a first for me and I really enjoyed these and would definitely purchase them in the future. If you love caramel then you are going to flip for these! These are each 10mg a piece. If you need something a little more potent, CBD Only also offers these as 50mg. I mention the stronger dosage caramels below. To consume these caramels simply place them in your mouth and allow them some time to dissolve. These are a great deal at $7.95 for a 4-pack.

Paradise CBD High Dose Edible Single Hard Candy (50mg)

CBDOnly Hard Candies
CBD Only Hard Candies 50mg

Each of these high dose edible hard candies contains 50mg of high quality extracted CBD oil. These edibles from Paradise are the perfect amount of CBD for when you need a higher dosage. My regular dosage of CBD is usually 30mg. Having a 50mg edible on hand is a great thing to have for when you need a bigger boost in relief. These lemon flavored hard candies are fun to consume and the lemon flavor is very pleasing.

One 5mg piece of CBD hard candy is going to $4.95 a pop. This is totally worth the price! The effects of these CBD hard candies will provide relief for several hours.

Since these are a higher dosage of CBD it is not advised to use 50mg as a starting point. The 10mg pieces mentioned earlier in this review would be perfect for the CBD virgin!

Other edibles available at CBDOnly

This was just a sampling of what CBD Only has to offer in the edibles department. If you love chocolate you are in luck because CBD Only does have a CBD chocolate bar available. Can you say YUM!?!!? The chocolate bars offered are a total of 120mg and are intended to be split up into smaller doses. Both milk chocolate and dark chocolate are available.

There are also some CBD snack bars available in three flavors. Flavors available are: Almond Cranberry, Blueberry Cashew, and Green Power. The snack bars contain 25mg of CBD, which is a pretty moderate dose. The snack bars are something I would really love to try out someday.

And oh my gosh they CBD Only also has a CBD peanut butter and a CBD honey available. These are available in 500mg tubs with full spectrum hemp oil. I am really super duper curious about both of these products and I am sitting here dreaming about all of the wonderful CBD foods I could whip up in the Give It A Whirl Girl kitchen!

All of these fun edible products make CBD a joy. The edibles can easily be incorporated into your diet and lifestyle.

Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed giving these CBD edibles a whirl from CBD Only and I hope this CBD Only review opened your eyes. The edibles that they have available make taking CBD a more enjoyable experience with their hard candies, caramels, and CBD gummies. CBD Only offers more than just edibles though! If you are looking for CBD oils, CBD capsules, and CBD vape products, CBD Only also has those available in their online store. CBD Only allows for star-ratings and reviews for their products and you can see for yourself with the fab reviews that you are going to get an effective and legit CBD product from them. You can definitely buy with confidence and peace of mind.

I actually just found out about this incredible place, Rocket Fizz, a few days ago through my sister. My sister took her kiddos here and shared some photos from her experience. I knew that right after seeing those photos of hers that I needed to come in and scope out this fun and unique place. Rocket Fizz is a soda pop & candy shop, as well a nostalgia store located in Shelby Township, MI. These are actually a chain of stores that are located throughout the United States. Spectacular surprises await you around every corner and I am sharing my first-time experience with you in this Rocket Fizz review.

Just what is Rocket Fizz?

Rocket Fizz just might be the place to head over to when you have a major hankering for sweets and you need to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. This is the place to visit if you need to stock up on “Cheat Day” sweets and treats.

Just living for those Cheat Day thrills!

I ended up taking home a big bag of candy that was chock full of several (and I do mean several) different flavors of taffy. We opted for the larger size bag that you could fill up with as much candy as you could stuff in there. It was $9 for the large bag and I believe it was $7 for the all-you-could-fill smaller bulk candy bag. There were so many different unique flavors of soda-pop at Rocket Fizz and I need to go back when I have a bigger chunk of money to spend here. I also am not a pop-drinker AT ALL but the unique flavors here are worthy of a try. My daughter ended up getting a black licorice pop and boy was it ever tasty! You can choose 4 flavors of soda-pop and build your own 4-pack at Rocket Fizz for $8.00. That is a great deal at $2 a pop! Otherwise, the soda pops sell for $2.29 a piece. The next time I visit this place I am going to get adventurous and try out the weird flavors of soda pop. I am thinking that it would be fun to purchase a couple of different 4-packs and do a video review with my 9-year-old daughter, Chloe Pearl! She is my little blogger sidekick and she has an adventurous palate when it comes to food and drink. Just like her momma, she will try pretty much anything once!

Nutty Steph’s REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Chocolate That Actually Makes A Loud Statement

I love when I am browsing the interwebs and come across a super duper cool online store! I recently came upon Nutty Steph’s while checking out a gift-guide chock full chocolates. Nutty Steph’s really stood out to me with their Bernie Bar! I really do try to avoid politics over here at Give It A Whirl Girl, but truth be told, and cat’s out of the bag… I absolutely love Bernie Sanders. Nutty Steph’s hails from the state of Vermont so it only makes sense that this online store backs Bernie as a big supporter. Nutty Steph’s also is a big backer of Planned Parenthood and they have the Vulva Chocolates to prove it!

Greek Caulipower Pizza RECIPE With Primal Kitchen (Gluten-Free, Vegetarian)

If you are not a fan of garlic it might just be time to walk away from this post. Today I will tell you how I created a Garlicky Greek Caulipower Pizza using a blank Caulipower crust and some Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette. You can adjust this recipe to your taste with the garlic but the amount that is noted in here is for garlic lovers only. This is, believe it or not, my first time ever having a Greek pizza. I love Greek food so I kind of had an idea in my mind that everything would turn out wonderful to me. Guess what? I nailed it and that is why I am sharing this recipe to you for my Greek Caulipower Pizza! This pizza does not contain any meat so it a vegetarian pizza and would be perfect for any veggie lover. I have a feeling that you will love this Caulipower Pizza recipe that I am sharing with you today!

Caulipower Crust – The Caulipower Greek Pizza All Starts Here

If you are looking at my post and my photos here and are drooling a bit and craving this Greek Caulipower Pizza then you are going to need your base to start with. This was my second time trying the Caulipower crust. I bought a veggie Caulipower pizza not too long ago and dressed it up with some additional toppings. This time I wanted to be the artist and the chef and create my own on a blank slate. The blank Caulipower crust pack contains two crusts and if you want you can double this recipe so that you have two Greek Caulipower Pizzas. The recipe has enough servings and slices for two people. That is of course unless you have a huge appetite and can eat an entire pizza by yourself.

The Power of the Caulipower

Let’s talk a bit about why I love this Caulipower crust so much.

First of all, it is paleo friendly. If you do not add any cheese this pizza will fulfill your paleo diet needs.

Secondly, we all know that cauliflower crust is all the rage these days because it is low-carb. A cauliflower crust pizza is leaning in the guilt-free direction of things. You can take a peek at the nutrition facts below (source). A serving size is considered 1/3 of the pizza and considering this is pizza it only comes in at 26 grams of carbs (with net carbs it is lower). A regular pizza is at least twice that amount and averages about 36 grams of carbs for just one slice!

Nutrition Facts for Caulipower Crust

And third, this Caulipower crust is nice and crisp! Often times a cauliflower crust can result in sogginess from the moisture that can be found in cauliflower. If you ever make your own crust you really have to squeeze the moisture out. I made my own cauliflower crust last year and while it was good, the texture of it was mushy. I did not get enough of the moisture out. Caulipower takes the frustration out of cauliflower crust. These blank crusts have endless possibilities.

Primal Kitchen Greek Marinade/Salad Dressing

This pizza uses Primal Kitchen’s Greek Marinade/Salad Dressing for the sauce. I am pretty confident that most other greek salad dressings will work for the Greek garlic sauce but Primal Kitchen is the brand that I use because I am a huge fan of all of their products. This dressing is made with only the finest all-natural ingredients. When an item is Whole-30 approved, you know it is going to be a healthy element in your dish.

Garlic! Garlic! And More Garlic!

There. I said it three times so you get the point. This Greek Caulipower Pizza recipe is chock full of garlic. I put three heaping tablespoons of it in the blender with my Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette. When I need minced garlic I skip the knifework and I grab my Spice World Minced Garlic. My knife skills suck if I am going to be honest here and minced garlic can be tricky. I really need to improve in the knife department. Spice World does all of the work for you and they are my go-to brand. They do also have an organic minced garlic available and I often try to use that but my Kroger was out the last time I shopped so I just went with regular.

Bring On The Cheese Please!

A Greek Caulipower Pizza would not be Greek if it was not for the feta cheese! No Greek pizza is complete without feta. For this recipe, I went with a blend of feta and mozzarella. I used one small container of Kroger’s Simple Truth Feta Cheese and I used a handful of Tillamook mozzarella, which is my favorite shredded mozzarella cheese.

Greek Toppings

For the rest of the toppings on this Greek Caulipower Pizza, I used cherry tomatoes, sliced kalamata olives, pepperoncinis, and half of a slivered and sliced shallot. Next time I make a Greek pizza I am going to add some sliced beets to it. I think beets would have been awesome on this pizza, so now you know! You might just want to add them to yours.

Final Thoughts on this Greek Caulipower Pizza recipe

I would love for you to know exactly what came out of my daughter’s mouth when she hesitantly took her first bite of this pizza. I did not think she would agree with it because of the potent taste of feta cheese BUT the first thing she said was,

Wow! Mom! This pizza has sooooooo much flavor!

It does have quite a potent garlic flavor so just scale back a tablespoon if three is too intense for you.

We were both impressed with the crisp texture of this Caulipower Crust! Could it be magic? I do not know how they do it but it sure turns out crisp after 13 minutes baking in the oven! It is very impressive to me that Caulipower has the power to transform cauliflower into a pizza crust that does disappoint. This Caulipower Pizza recipe might just be one of your recipes that are in regular rotation! Love it!

Start Your Day With A Slingshot Shake – Complete Breakfast Protein Slingshot Shake REVIEW

Would you like to try a delicious and nutritious breakfast shake that is packed full of protein and nutrients? Slingshot Foods has a complete breakfast in one handy on-the-go breakfast shake and no spoon is required! What makes these Slingshot Shakes unique and stand out from the rest, is the little granola package at the top of the bottle. You simply tear it open and pour the granola mixture into your protein shake and give it a good shake to mix it up. You will find that these delicious breakfast shakes will be a lifesaver on busy mornings when you have very little or no time at all to eat. I have a feeling that after reading my Slingshot Shake review you will be stocking up on this drinkable yogurt.

Slingshot Shakes REVIEW

In today’s fast-paced world, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that drinkable yogurt is one of the fasted growing breakfast foods around. In just the past year this category of breakfast food has grown at a rate of a 20% increase. Cereal still remains the number one breakfast food (no surprise there). So just why then are these drinkable yogurts on the rise? They are an excellent source of protein and nutrients to kickstart your day.

 

Slingshot Shake Nutrition

Protein

This small, on-the-go bottle of Slingshot Shake packs in a great big amount of protein to start your day. In one Slingshot Shake, you will find a whopping 18 grams of protein.

Probiotics

This handy breakfast shake from Slingshot also contains a healthy dose of gut-boosting probiotics. A Slingshot Shake contains 15 billion CFUs of probiotics. Your gut is going to thank you for all of these probiotics. You may hear quite a bit of talk about probiotics nowadays. Probiotics are a hot topic and for good reason. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that help give your digestive system some balance between the good bacteria and bad bacteria in your gut.

Lactobacillus is the probiotic that you might hear about most frequently. This good bacteria is found in your yogurt and what you might call friendly bacteria. You can read more about lactobacillus HERE.

Fiber

Slingshot Shake also gives your healthy diet a serving of fiber, coming in at 3 grams of fiber. Fiber is essential to a well-balanced diet and helps keep things running smoothly if you know what I mean! There are many health benefits of fiber including relieving constipation, maintaining bowel health, lowering cholesterol levels, control blood sugar levels, helping to maintain a healthy weight, and can actually help you live a longer life!

The recommended daily intake of fiber for men and women vary. It is recommended that men get 38 grams of fiber, and women need around 28 grams of fiber.

Slingshot Complete Breakfast Shakes come in 6 flavors

All natural ingredients in Slingshot Shakes

I checked out the nutrition label on my Slingshot Shake and was pleasantly surprised to see that these drinkable yogurt protein shakes have only all natural ingredients with nothing strange or weird lurking inside. Ingredients: (Drink) Lowfat milk, milk protein concentrate, water, organic cane sugar, honey, natural flavors, vanilla beans, lemon juice concentrate, yogurt cultures; (Shot) Toasted oats, chia seeds, almond bits, honey, sunflower oil I love when I look at the label on my food and I can pronounce all of the words that are in the list of ingredients.

Flavors of Slingshot Shakes

There are six wonderful flavors of Slingshot shakes breakfast shakes available. Each comes with its own little granola pouch. These little pouches contain the following ingredients: rolled oats, chia seeds, and toasted almond bits.

How can Slingshot Shakes improve?

I am going to have to say that the biggest drawback to the Slingshot Shake is the amount of added sugar that I found on the label. For example, the vanilla shake 35 grams of total sugar with 23 added grams of sugar factored into that. For a health-conscious person, those 35 grams of sugar are just going to be way too much. For men, the recommended daily amount of sugar per day is 37.5 grams of sugar and for women, the recommended daily amount of sugar is 25 grams. You can find out more info about that HERE. It is super crazy hard to only take in 25 grams of sugar these days if you are a woman like me. This shake only puts me way over the recommended amount by the American Heart Association. So while I do enjoy these shakes, they are not part of my everyday morning routine.

What is next for Slingshot Shakes

It appears to be that Slingshot Shakes will be soon releasing a line of drinkable yogurt shakes for your little ones. The Slingshot Shorties, however, do not come up with the crunchy shot of granola for the shake. Slingshot Shakes decided that it is a textural issue with young children. The shakes for your little ones will still be full of nutrients and gut boosting probiotics, but no shot.

Final Thoughts

Slingshot Shakes are a simple and easy solution for when you need a quick breakfast. Just grab and go! The crunchy granola shot was a nice welcomed addition. The granola shot gives this yogurt shake a delightful texture. My daugher, who is 9, also enjoyed drinking the Slingshot Shake. I was happy to share with her and it is a breakfast that I feel good about serving.


Question Time! What flavor of Slingshot Shake will you be giving a whirl first? Leave me a comment and let me know what flavor you will try!

CBDistellery REVIEW – CBD Products – Tincture, Gummies, Softgels, Vape Pen, & Salve

CBDistellery specializes in bringing CBD products to consumers. They have an online store with many options of CBD products. I am very new to the world of CBD and my interest is definitely piqued with it. This CBDistellery review will reveal my experience with their products.

Truth be told, I have been suffering from debilitating anxiety and depression symptoms for several years and I am desperate for relief. Medications do not remedy my problems, they only slightly mask the symptoms. I have heard so many wonderful things about CBD to remedy anxiety and depression so I was thrilled at the thought of doing this CBDistellery review to see their products can help me out in any way. I also wanted to test their products to see if they could remedy my insomnia.

I am not going to get into too much of the technical side of CBD here. This post is a review of their products and how each product helped me. This post is about my experience using products from CBDistellery.

DISCLAIMER:

I am not a medical professional and this review is not to be taken as medical advice. If you have health concerns please address them with your physician and consult your doctor before taking any CBD products mentioned within this review..

About CBDistellery and CBD

Wondering what exactly CBD is? I was too and then I did a bit of research to educate myself on how and why CBD works. For this CBDistellery review I did read up on CBD so I could educate myself on the topic.

CBD (also known as Cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive substance and it does not contain any THC that will get you stoned. There are many health benefits that come along with using CBD. It really truly is a miracle product!

Health benefits of CBD

  • Chronic pain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy
  • Arthritis
  • Schizophrenia
  • MS
  • Diabetes
  • Insomnia
  • Post-partum depression
  • Can help alleviate cancer-related symptoms
  • Nausea
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • May reduce acne
  • Can help benefit heart health
  • Substance abuse

How much CBD should I take? Dosage information

With CBD, each and everyone is different and unique in what dosage works for you. Many people feel the benefits of CBD with only a small dose. There is no actual recommended starting dose for anyone. My best advice with CBD is to just start small and see how your body and mind reacts to it. Each individual determines the dosage that works best for them.

Isolate VS Full Spectrum CBD

Our 99% CBD Isolate is pure isolated CBD. Full Spectrum products contain additional cannabinoids besides just CBD. There is definitely a strong debate about which is “better”, however, we take the position that CBD affects everyone differently so the product that would work best for you is highly dependant on your own individual needs. That’s why we offer both Isolate and Full Spectrum products 🙂 Please see the test results located under Product Photos for more info on exactly which cannabinoids are present in our Full Spectrum products! (information source)

Try CBDistellery with confidence that you are getting high-quality CBD oil

You can use CBDistellery products with great confidence because they are ranked #3 in the world for best CBD. That is a huge honor because there is a ton of CBD popping up everywhere and all over the place these days.

The online reviews of CBDistellery are quite stellar. You can have peace of mine consuming their products once you read the rave reviews.

Lab results for CBDistellery

I was curious to see what the lab results were for CBDistellery so I did a little Google searching and did view the lab results report. You can view the report HERE.

My experience with CBD

I am also currently in the process of withdrawing from a benzodiazepine medication that I was prescribed for over 7 years. My taper from the benzo began with Klonopin and I am nearing the end of my taper with Valium. Some days the symptoms are unbearable. I get hit hard with withdrawal symptoms every single time I make a cut to near the end of my benzo taper. I wanted to see if CBD could relieve the worst of the withdrawal symptoms (anxiety and depression) so I gave some products a try from CBDistellery.

Because there are no psychoactive effects of CBD I do not ever feel stoned or high after consuming any CBD product. For me, CBD calms me and balances me out. I use CBD products whenever I feel a hint of depression and anxiety. Shortly after consuming the CBD product I feel an improvement in my mood and I can get back to functioning properly. CBD is a lifesaver for me and I love that it is an all-natural remedy to my health concerns. I do not experience any side-effects after using a CBD product.

Another problem that CBD helps me out with is insomnia. The CBD has proven to be more effective than a melatonin supplement for me. I tend to wake up several times in the middle of the night and CBD helped me get a better quality of sleep. I woke less in the middle of the night when I consumed CBD before bedtime.

Modern Cone REVIEW – Our First Visit To This Modern-Day Ice-Cream Shop In St. Clair Shores

Modern Cone is a fairly new ice-cream shop to hit the city of St. Clair Shores, MI. This ice cream shop is formerly known as Ashby’s Ice Cream shop. I am so excited about the change that has come to this location. This past weekend we were actually looking for a new frozen-yogurt or ice cream shop to visit and we stumbled upon Modern Cone on Yelp. The photos that I saw on my Yelp app totally and completely sucked me in. So for Tried It Out Tuesday this week I am sharing my Modern Cone review with you. If you are in the Detroit area (or St. Clair Shores would be even better) you need to check out Modern Cone. Their extensive menu is super duper exciting for the ice cream enthusiast. You will find yourself coming back for more and more after your first visit! I am always looking for new and interesting foods to try out and Modern Cone was the most perfect content to share with my readers.

My Modern Cone Ice Cream Review

First Impressions

My first impression of this ice cream shop was the super duper friendly staff! There were two people working when I came in and they were both very friendly and both were helpful. It is always reassuring to go into a new establishment and be welcomed by some joyful staff members.

Modern Cone is a decently-sized little ice cream shop. There are several ice cream flavors to choose from, an exciting menu board, and also an adequate amount of seating for those who wish to enjoy their ice cream on the spot. Check out the menu board below.

Create Your Own Stacker

Modern Cone offers up one of these lovely items known as a Stacker. You can order a Stacker off the menu board or create your very own!

  1. The bottom of the Stacker gets 2 toppings & sauce
  2. Ice cream layer
  3. 2 toppings & sauce
  4. More ice cream!
  5. For the topping of your Stacker, you choose two toppings and a sauce

Easy peasy and endless possibilities! I look forward to trying more Stackers off their menu and then venturing into creating my own.

Regular size Stackers sell for $6.00 and the large size sells for $8.00. To me, this is a very reasonable price for a sundae that is not only delicious but memorable too!

Our Two Ice Cream Stackers and a Modern Cone

I ended up splurging on the Cereal Killer sundae, my hubby got a I Want S’more (s’mores flavor), and my daughter Chloe got a double-scoop ice cream cone with rainbow sherbet and cotton candy. It was really hard to narrow down my choice to just one because the Stackers that Modern Cone offers all sound enticing to me. I consider myself an ice cream enthusiast so I can’t wait to return to Modern Cone and give more of these creative icec ream concoctions a whirl!

Cereal Killer

I have never in my life had an ice cream sundae with cereal on it but now seems like a good time to start! My Cereal Killer Stacker included strawberry ice cream with a variety of different breakfast cereals (Fruity Pebbles, Trix, and Lucky Charms) and it was then topped with a white chocolate sauce. Talk about a unique ice cream experience! Yeah yeah yeah I know this sounds like diabetes that is ready to happen in a cup BUT I do not treat myself to confections like this often so all is good! I was long overdue for a Cheat Day treat and this Cereal Killer Stacker satisified my sweet tooth!

Our three desserts at Modern Cone

They also have “NACHOS”!

I was really intrigued by the section of the menu where it said NACHOS! This ice cream shop puts a delicious spin on nachos and they came up with dessert nachos. Yep… you heard that right! With the nachos, you get two flavors of ice cream, your choice of 3 different toppings, and two dessert sauces.

Other Items Available On The Menu

There is a great variety of items available on the menu here. Indulge in an Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich or Cookie Ala Mode! Few things in life beat the winning combination of a warm cookie paired with some scrumptious ice cream so I bet you a million bucks that I will be trying out both of these frozen treats!

Traditional Treats

If you don’t want to try out something wild and crazy then Modern Cone has you covered with more traditional fare like milkshakes, sundaes, cones, Italian Ice, slushies, and even a pup cup perfect for your pooch!

What is next for me at Modern Cone

I already have my mind made up (I think!) for my next visit to Modern Cone. I need that Fruity Explosion! The Fruity Explosion comes with vanilla ice cream but I am leaning towards swapping that out for some Blue Moon or cotton-candy!

Final Thoughts

I am sharing this Modern Cone review today because I want to inspire you all to get off your butt and head on over here! This was my first ever visit here and I was absolutely blown away by the menu choices.

Ice cream shops like this are a dream come true for me because I am not into ordinary… give me extraordinary!

This place is anything but boring. When you go to an ice cream shop like this you are in for a real treat. The menu is so creative and it really has inspired me to want to go back for more! I want to give it all a big whirl! Lucky for us, we actually live within walking distance to Modern Cone. I am feeling like I hit the jackpot by discovering this unique and modern place!

When that afternoon fatigue and hunger pang hits me, I need something to recharge myself with. If you are looking for a good, clean source of energy, look no further than to Redd Bar Superfood Energy Bars. Today I am sharing my Redd Bar review with you on the blog for Tried It Out Tuesday. These snack bars are gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and contain 35mg of caffeine per bar. These bars will give you the jolt that you need without any jitters. What I love about these snack bars is that they only use pure and natural ingredients in their bar. You will not find anything strange lurking inside these. They also taste fantastic!

They come in five different flavors: Chocolate, Salted Caramel (my favorite!), Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate, and Oatmeal.

Redd Bar is actually 3 items in one handy snack: protein bar + energy shot + multivitamin.

It is a convenient snack that is a nutritional powerhouse. I am confident that you will be adding them on the regular for your snack rotation.

Chocolate Redd Bar

I have a thing for anything and everything chocolate! This nutrient-dense snack will satisfy your chocolate cravings and in a great way that you can feel good about! This bar has dark chocolate and cocoa powder in it for maximum flavor.

Check out these nutrition facts… VITAMINS AND MINERALS GALORE! This particular flavor also has a large amount of dietary fiber… 8 grams! WOWZA! This will really keep your regular if you know what I mean. I am very impressed with these number of the nutrition facts label.

Salted Caramel Redd Bar

This flavor right over here was the first bar that I gave a whirl and boy was I ever impressed with the bold flavor of this particular flavor. This Salted Caramel bar is hands down my favorite. If you love caramel you will be delighted by this flavor.
