I have a special recipe to share with you all today! This past weekend I invited my mom over for a special Sunday dinner. I love having family over and preparing a tasty dish for them. So today I am sharing my Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs recipe to my loyal readers. This recipe is a family favorite and this meal will surely fill you up! These meatballs are stuffed with oozy mozzarella cheese pearls and they are mighty huge meatballs! This Italian meatball recipe might just become a family favorite in your home too. There is a gluten-free option for my gluten-free readers.
Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs RECIPE
This mozzarella stuffed meatball recipe is the perfect meal to whip up in your slow-cooker. Once you do all of the work to prepare the meatballs it is smooth sailing after that. The meatballs should take about 15-20 minutes to create. I have also included a pasta sauce recipe for these mozzarella stuffed meatballs, but you can feel free to skip that part and use the pasta sauce of your choice. I often avoid the jarred pasta sauces and create my own sauce with some crushed tomatoes.
The best pasta to go with these mozzarella stuffed meatballs is the spaghetti noodle. You can go thick or you can go thin. We went thick!
The Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs homemade sauce
You have to have a great pasta sauce to go with your mozzarella stuffed meatballs. I have included a great pasta sauce recipe to go with the meatballs. The pasta sauce is simple and easy to create. If you want a sauce that tastes great you have to use good tomatoes. I used DeLallo’s crushed tomatoes and they were some of the best I ever had. Muir Glen is also another great brand to go with.
And a blend of ground beef and ground Italian sausage is essential to this dish. The mix of meats is going to give you a flavorful, zesty meatball. Ground Italian sausage always lends awesome flavor to Italian pasta sauces.
This recipe is for my famous mozzarella-stuffed meatballs… a family favorite! These hearty meatballs are stuffed with mozzarella pearls. When you dig into these meatballs you will love the oozing melty cheese! This is a slow-cooker recipe that serves approximately 8 people. Serve with the pasta of your choice. We love spaghetti noodles with this recipe!
1 pound Ground beef (I use grass fed beef)
1 pound Ground Italian sausage
Mozzarella pearls (You can stuff each meatball with 1 or 2 pearls (depending on how large you make the meatballs))
1 1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs (Use gluten-free breadcrumbs if you are gluten-free)
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons Minced garlic
1/4 cup Milk
1/2 tablespoon Garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon Onion powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Black pepper
2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
28 ounce Can of crushed tomatoes (I used DeLallo)
6 ounce Can of tomato paste (I used Muir Glen)
2 tablespoons Minced garlic
2 Shallots (Diced)
1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
Salt (To Taste)
Black pepper (To Taste)
1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
Use a large mixing bowl for the meatballs. Place all ingredients (except for the olive oil) for the meatballs into a large mixing bowl. Use clean hands to mix and incorporate all of the ingredients.
Form large balls (approx 2 – 2 1/2 inches across) and stuff the meatballs with either one or two mozzarella pearls. Make sure the meatballs are tightly formed so the cheese does not melt out of them. Set aside the meatballs on a large cookie sheet.
Warm two tablespoons of olive oil in a large saute pan. Once the oil has warmed place the meatballs in the pan and brown all sides of the meatballs.
Set aside the meatballs while you prepare the pasta sauce in the next step.
Warm a bit of olive oil in a saute pan and then add your minced garlic and diced shallots. Cook until translucent and fragrant. Add to the slow-cooker.
Add the rest of the pasta sauce ingredients to your slow-cooker. Stir well.
Place the meatballs in the slow-cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.
Prepare the pasta of your choice. Spaghetti noodles work best with meatballs.
Serve, eat, and enjoy your meatballs!
If you are gluten-free, sub the Italian breadcrumbs for a gluten-free breadcrumb. Serve over gluten-free pasta.
Final thoughts about the mozzarella stuffed meatballs recipe
These mozzarella stuffed meatballs were loved and enjoyed by all of us at the dinner table! You just can’t go wrong with a recipe like this. This recipe is a keeper! This is a fabulous meal to create when you have guests over for dinner. Because you use two pounds of meat to make the mozzarella stuffed meatballs there is a lot of food to go around! And these meatballs are huge! I could only pack in two of these gigantic mozzarella stuffed meatballs. How many will you eat? 3 might just be the limit with this dish. A lot of meat!

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! You can use it for smoothies, nice creams, soups, milkshakes, hummus, alcoholic beverages, homemade nut butter, baby foods, and more. This MengK blender features a very well-constructed 67oz professional blender jar. Please note that this blender jar is not a glass blending jar, it is made out of some very heavy duty, thick, plastic. The blending jar for the MengK blender is BPA-free.
MengK blender motor
The MengK blender has a whopping 2.6 HP-2000 watt motor, and this commercial blender can reach a rotational speed of up to 27,000 r/min. This powerful motor makes it possible to crush ice, fruits, and vegetables.
This powerful blender features 6 stainless steel, sharp blades for maximum blending power. The MengK blender crushing blades make it possible and perfect for ice crushing, blending, pureeing, and controlled processing.
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
Cleaning the MengK blender is simple and easy to do! All you need to do is add a bit of soap and warm water to the blending cup. Turn the blender onto a mid-high speed and it 30-60 seconds the cup and blades will be clean. Rinse after cleaning and carefully dry.
Satisfaction guaranteed from MengK
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your MengK blender purchases, MengK offers a money back guarantee and a warranty on their product.
3-month warranty on commercial Cups and a 6-month warranty on household cups, unified TWO years warranty about this pedestal, and 30-day refund guarantee.
Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl
Take a trip to paradise with this dragon fruit smoothie bowl. You will feel like you are transported to a tropical place with this exotic fruit smoothie bowl recipe.
2 Bananas (Frozen and chopped)
1 cup Dragon Fruit chunks (Frozen of fresh)
1 Kiwi Fruit (Sliced)
1 Star Fruit (Sliced and seeds removed)
2/3 cup Unsweetened nut milk of choice
Place the frozen bananas, dragon fruit, and milk in the blender and process until smooth.
Pour the smoothie mixture into two bowls.
Top the smoothie with fresh sliced kiwi fruit and star fruit.
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.
Question Time! What will you be using the MengK blender for first? What will you create with this powerful blender?

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. From floor-to-ceiling there are sweet confections and oddities everywhere your eyes look. It is like sensory overload in here and I mean that in the greatest way for the candy consumer.
And just a heads up! This is a very pic-heavy post! I feel as though the images here really speak for themselves. I am really and truly hoping that my Rocket Fizz review will inspire you to visit this candy shop! If you want to find out where there is a Rocket Fizz store near you, you can use the store locator tool to find out where the closest location is.
My 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.
If you have ever been curious about what mustard-flavored or puke flavored pop tasted like then Rocket Fizz has you covered with their completely and totally INSANE flavors of pop for the thrillseeker!
Rocket Fizz is a store that has great pride in offering unique food and drink items to the public. They are a brand that strives for creativity and innovation. This store is the furthest thing from being boring. Rocket Fizz is the type of store that definitely evokes a lot of happiness, a ton of smiles, and plenty of hardy laughs. The mission of the Rocket Fizz chain of stores is that they want to offer something for everyone, for people of all ages and backgrounds. After my first visit here I can truthfully say that Rocket Fizz does succeed in doing that quite well! We had a blast here and we are all excited to come back soon for another visit.
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!
As you can see in the photo below, we did take home quite a bit of taffy in many different assorted flavors. I wonder how long this bowl of candy will last here? Probably not long!
Seriously guys and gals… if you can not find a candy here at Rocket Fizz that appeals to you then you might have a problem! This store offers something for everyone! They have the more traditional candies available here as well as some really unique off-the-wall stuff! They have everything from taffy, sour candies, Jelly Bellies, lollipops, gummy candy, chocolate bars, and MORE!
Rocket Fizz is more than just candy and soda pop!
The neat thing about Rocket Fizz is that it is more than just a soda-pop and candy shop. You can find some very unique gifts at Rocket Fizz. You can find a vast array of decorative tin signs here, gag gifts, and more. These items are mixed in throughout the store. If you have ever wondered where you could get a giant unicorn mask you are in luck at Rocket Fizz. You can make all of your unicorn dreams come true here!
I believe that my readers will really enjoy their first visit to Rocket Fizz! My little family of three sure had fun browsing around this soda-pop and candy shop! There are so many fun and unique items here at Rocket Fizz and it is a lot to take in all at once. It seems as though everywhere I looked I could spot something that I wanted to take home with me to try out! When you do visit this establishment, be sure to bring a decent wad of money with you to blow here. And always remember to eat and drink with an open mind! See something of interest? Take it home and give it a whirl!

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.
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
Can help alleviate cancer-related symptoms
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
May reduce acne
Can help benefit heart health
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.
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.
Each drop from the 1000mg vial of CBD tincture contains approximately 33.2mg of CBD to help with your health and wellbeing. Using these CBD drops is the way to go if you are a CBD virgin and not familiar with how CBD will affect you. It is always advised to start out small with CBD and then slowly work your way up. You can place a drop of oil under the tongue or mix it into a smoothie, etc.
This tincture comes in a conveniently sized 30ml bottle. This is a pure and 100% natural way to relieve your symptoms. There are no added chemicals or dyes.
Here is a link to the smallest tincture that CBDistellery has available and each drop is appx 8mg of CBD oil.
CBDistellery softgels make it simple and easy to get your dose of CBD. Sometimes oil can be a mess or hassle if you are out and about. There is no mixing or measuring with the full spectrum CBD softgels from CBDistellery. Just pop one softgel in your mouth and swallow with water. Wait for the relief to set in.
The 30mg CBD gummies by CBDistellery are my favorite of all the CBD products that I tried out. These CBD gummies not only taste great but they are highly effective. Each gummy is 30mg of high-quality, THC-free CBD and they have a fabulous fruity flavor.
The vape pen from CBDistellery is a fabulous little product that you can store in your purse or pocket when you are on-the-go! If you are looking for a high-quality CBD vape pen CBDistellery has got you covered with this.
The vape was not my favorite method for getting CBD. It seems to hit pretty hard and it did make me cough a bit. If you are an experienced vaper that probably would not be a big deal to you. My husband is a vaper and he did not cough after hitting this vape pen. Ready to give this vape pen a whirl? Get yours HERE.

Let’s kick things off here by just admitting that I feel so very blessed to live in close proximity to Nino Salvaggio in St. Clair Shores. I have been visiting Nino Salvaggio’s for as long as I can remember. My mom used to go shopping here all the time and my mind was always blown by the beautiful, colorful fruit and vegetable displays there. It is sort of like a work of art… an installation of the prettiest produce your eyes have seen. Nino Salvaggio takes pride in the products that they sell, and it shows! This store is absolutely stunning and you can see that they pay attention to detail.
Today I will also be sharing a recipe for an exotic fruit smoothie bowl that I created with passion fruit and guava. Passion fruit is one of my favorite fruits and I love the sweet and sour taste of it. Guava is another favorite exotic fruit of mine and I don’t get a chance to enjoy it very often. I could not resist buying one from Nino Salvaggio.
About Nino Salvaggio
Nino Salvaggio is the go-to place in the area if you want some perfect and flawless ingredients in your food. It’s not just fruits and veggies though! Nino Salvaggio also has a deli and meat counter. They also have a great little grocery section with some very cool, unusual ingredients. And you just have to see the gorgeous bakery at Nino Salvaggio. I get my chocolate cassata birthday cake from Nino Salvaggio every single year. And speaking of birthdays, mine is next month and I will be enjoying that cake soon! Yippee!
Nino Salvaggio has four convenient locations in Michigan to serve you. They are located in St. Clair Shores, Troy, Clinton Township, and Bloomfield Township. You can find out more about Nino Salvaggio and their mission HERE. This is a store that is highly committed to providing high quality foods.
I visited Nino Salvaggio this past weekend to pick up some exotic fruits. I knew ahead of time that I wanted to pick up a couple passion fruits (one of my all-time favorite fruits). The dilemma was that I really was not quite sure what I wanted to combine it with for my smoothie bowl. Then I saw the guava and I knew that would pair well with the passion fruit so I took home one of those.
Exotic fruits that intrigued me at Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace
The exotic fruits section at Nino Salvaggio is the most interesting place to shop, for me anyway! This is the spot in the store where you can get brave and muster up the strength to try something new!
So this is the fruit that I was really going after with my trip to Nino Salvaggio. Passion fruit just might be one of my all-time favorite fruits to chow down on. With the passion fruit, you get the wonderful combination of sweet & sour. If you don’t like the texture of tapioca you probably won’t like this. It does, to me, have a tapioca texture. It is slimy and seedy but the taste blows my mind. Using this as the star of my smoothie bowl was a wise choice!
Passion fruit is a nutrient-dense fruit that has a great amount of Vitamin C in it and it is great for the immune system. The passion fruit also has some fiber, Vitamin A, potassium, and a bit of iron. It is a small fruit and contains around 17 calories per serving. You can learn all about the health benefits of the passion fruit HERE.
Guava is the second fruit that I ended up going with for my smoothie bowl. These guavas are oh so yummy but they are pricey! I only took home one small guava. One turned out to be just enough for the flavor that I was going after.
As far as nutrition goes with the guava fruit, you are going to find some antioxidants, Vitamin C, fiber, and beta carotene in the fruit. There are 8 wonderful health benefits of the guava fruit and you can feed your brain with knowledge over here.
Now here is an interesting piece of fruit! This is a rambutan and it sort of reminds me of lychee fruit. I was really tempted to get more of these but the steep price deterred me and I only purchased one! Me and my daughter, Chloe, split the rambutan in half and we each tried a small piece. It definitely does have a taste reminiscent of lychee. The flesh was soft and also reminded me of grapes. I would give this a whirl again. We really enjoyed the experience of trying this unique fruit.
Quince is a new-to-me fruit too. Never ever had one in my life had quince! These tart fruits are grown in Chile and you can eat them raw, but it is advised to cook these if you want the best flavor to come through.
Ya Ya Pear
The ya ya pear is a pear that originates from China. This white pear’s flavor can best be described as a cross between a rose and a pineapple. The ya ya pear is crisp and sweet, but not overly sweet. Just the right amount of sweetness!
Passion Fruit / Guava Smoothie Bowl RECIPE
For this Passion Fruit/ Guava smoothie bowl I used two frozen bananas, two passion fruits, one guava, coconut milk, chia seeds, and coconut flakes. This tropical smoothie bowl makes a fantastic treat for breakfast!
Passion Fruit & Guava Smoothie Bowl
Want a smoothie bowl with exotic flavor?
Give this tropical passion fruit and guava smoothie bowl a whirl!
2 Bananas (Frozen)
1/4 cup Full fat coconut milk
2 Passion Fruit
2 tbsp Coconut flakes
1 tbsp Chia seeds
Place two frozen bananas, 1 passion fruit, 1 guava, and 1/4 cup of coconut milk in the blender. Use your smoothie mode if your blender has one.
Once blended up pour the smoothie mixture into a large bowl. Soup bowls work well.
Top your smoothie bowl with some shredded coconut flake and chia seeds. And now you can use your other passion fruit to top the smoothie.
Eat and enjoy! Hope you love it!

When I gave Sun Basket a whirl I went with the gluten-free paleo meal kit. Sun Basket is a subscription service that relies heavily on clean eating.

There are ten different options to choose from on the weekly menu with Marley Spoon. If you are following a vegetarian diet, you are in luck because there are vegetarian options available.
Check out the images below to see a couple of different dinners that I prepared with the Marley Spoon subscription box.

Not sure what a white elephant gift exchange is?
The white elephant is also known as a Secret Santa Gift Exchange. I prefer the term White Elephant though. The rules of the game are fairly simple. There is an excellent blog post about how to do a white elephant gift exchange.
Let’s say there are 12 people participating in the white elephant gift exchange.
Everyone participating brings a wrapped gift without a name tag on it.
You write down the numbers 1-12 on a small piece of paper and fold it up.
Everybody chooses a number.
The person with the number 1 chooses a wrapped gift.
The next person can either steal the gift that #1 had or they can choose a wrapped gift.
If person #1 has their item stolen, they choose another wrapped gift.
Player #3 either steals a gift from player 1 or 2 or can choose a wrapped gift
You can set your own rules about how many times an item can be stolen. Some people will allow an item to be stolen once, twice, or three times. It is your choice.
You continue this process until person #12 goes up to steal or choose the last wrapped gift.
Check out the gift guide, do a little shopping, and then scroll down to enter the GIVEAWAY for a $25 Perpetual Kid gift card. This giveaway is open to anyone 18+ that lives in the United States and Canada!

I also included some other neato cereal-related items to this gift guide. We have some Funko pops, clothing, a card game, some Christmas ornaments, and more!
Looking for a breakfast cereal and colon cleanser all-in-one? Poop Like A Champion delivers! One half-cup serving of this cereal has a whopping 16 grams of fiber! This is unheard of and totally intriguing to me! And a bonus? It is also gluten-free! One thing to note here though is that this cereal is not made to taste great. It is made with a purpose and that is to clean the gunk out of your guts and insides. Let’s face it… sometimes it needs to be done.
This breakfast cereal would also make for one tremendous gag gift!
Here is a super adorable cereal for all of the unicorn lovers out there! I know you are out there too because nowadays unicorns are all the rage. It is a trend and I never want it to die out!

Here is a fun breakfast cereal for Y’all! This is a sweet oat cereal with marshmallows that are in the shape of unicorn horns, trombones, & booties! Booties??? OMG! This is one box that you are going to want to keep and save. It also has a “booticorn” mask on the back.
This Clark Griswold Christmas Vacation breakfast cereal from Funko is perfect for the holiday season. Christmas Vacation is hands down my all time favorite Christmas movie. I can watch it once a week leading up to Christmas and not get sick or tired of it. The film is a classic and it is sure to make anyone laugh and smile. This is a limited edition FYE exclusive cereal but I was able to locate in on Amazon.
Here is a limited edition Lucky Charms breakfast cereal that is chocolate flavor. Lucky Charms were a fave when I was growing up. I have a feeling that this chocolate flavored box of them is sure to delight any Lucky Charms fan!
