My First BZZ Review - Danone Danactive Strawberry

So apparently for the BZZ Agents, I review the product elsewhere and then let them know!

So here goes, I am reviewing the Danone Danactive probiotic drink in Strawberry.   I was a little nervous when I was chosen for this campaign as I have a bit of a texture thing and am not a huge fan of creamy drinks at all.

A few days ago, i received my voucher for a free 8 pack of Danone Danactive and I headed out to the store to pick up my free case.   The packaging is nice and bright and sunny and caught my eye in the cooler.   I went to Pricesmart and I only had the choice of strawberry, however there are other flavours in other size packages.

I was very reluctant as I opened up my tiny little bottle, but I pulled back the tin topper and gave the top a lick! YUM, the strawberry flavour and smell was quite pleasant.  I popped back the rest of the drink in three easy swallows.   The small size makes it perfect if you are feeling wierd about drinking your yogurt instead of eating it.

The taste was not too sweet and was not sour at all.   It was just a yummy creamy strawberry taste that did not have a lasting aftertaste in my mouth.  It was smooth and I found that the strawberry flavour was a genuine taste and not like a fake strawberry extract flavour.

My one and only criticism of this product is that it is not a substantial source of anything but the probiotic. 0% of your daily intake of the major viatmins and calcium and the same for fibre.  For those on Weight Watchers, this product will cost you 2 points in the morning!   By adding 3 grams of fibre they could have dropped that down to 1 point and who can't use more fibre in there diet!  Diabetics should note that there are 14 grams of carbs!

so what about the pro-biotic,  I asked my doctor about this as I am currently on antibiotics and he highly recommended using a pro-biotic drink or capsule while taking antibiotics.  He also suggested that if you were experience bathroom discomfort while pregnant that taking the pro-biotic would be a good natural way to help turn it around.

So lets sum it up:

Taste - very pleasant, no aftertaste, no chemical diet/extract taste

Texture - smooth and velvetty

Value - Not bad $6.00 for a week plus 1 day supply, Probiotic pills are around 30 dollars a month so the drink is less expensive

WW Points - 2 points

Stars - I would give this a 4 out of 5 stars, losing one for its low nutritional value.

Would I buy it again?? - YES I WOULD

Continued adventures in dating.....

Good Morning readers!

All three of you!

I know you are chomping at the bit to hear all about my wild and crazy adventures in babysitting uh online dating.

Well for the most part it seems to be a wash out.   I will talk with some interesting guys and it seems good and then POOOOFF...they are gone.   I suspect its because i don't jump on the hey come F^&* me train fast enough?   Either that or my busy schedule doesn't work for them.   For the most part thought its just dudes looking for nookie!

Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been bad, I have talked to some really nice guys but so far it hasn't turned in to much.   But let me tell you about one experience I had last night.

I have seen this guys profile on a couple of different sites - he uses the same three lame pictures which were taken one right after the other and then describes how amazing he is in the context of the stuff he has and what he has accomplished.  He is kind of cute.. i guess...in a bit of a we…

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
Well....
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

This week in online dating - you are Amazed by Me....

Or..alternatively - How does this chick get all these guys??

I think sometimes people are a bit amazed when they see me and see that I don’t really have a problem getting dates.  Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a post about me bashing myself so get off your soap boxes; but I think we have this media culture that tells us

FAT IS BAD!  NO ONE LIKES FAT!  FAT IS UGLY!! IF YOU ARE FAT YOU WILL BE SINGLE FOREVER!
NO ONE WILL WANT TO GET WITH YOU!



 I am going to have to call bullshit!
I will admit, if I a guy is super-hot, I generally don’t email or wink at him first.   I automatically assume that they will not be interested in me.   It always boggles my mind when a total hottie messages me and tells me how beautiful I am.   I regret to say I often ask them if they have seen all my pictures and know that I am a bigger more fluffy girl.   99.8% of the time the reply I get back is:
OH YES….I love a girl with gorgeous curves like yours.
I have to be honest; I get about 3 times as many messages as I te…
