Show Your Vaccine Card at Krispy Kreme For Two Free Doughnuts, One Week Only!

Finally, someone is offering a perk to those who got vaccinated before it was being incentivized with cash payments. As the country continues to scale Covid-19 vaccinations, Krispy Kreme has found a way to show support for those who are protecting themselves and others by getting vaccinated. For me, staying healthy was incentive enough, but it’s nice to be acknowledged for doing the right thing .  Here’s the deal:

For one week only, 8/30 – 9/5/21, anyone who shows their Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card at any US-based Krispy Kreme location will receive two free doughnuts: an Original Glazed doughnut and an Original Glazed Heart-shaped doughnut. If you are feeling generous, you might offer your heart-shaped doughnut  to a friend, though I am pretty sure I would eat both doughnuts myself. Because free donuts.

It’s Mister Softee Season!

I enjoyed my first official Mister Softee treat of the not-quite-Summer season at the beginning to June, when I visited Little Island Park, and it was delicious! Nothing says summer fun quite like a soft serve ice-cream in a cone or cup (my preference, due to less mess)! Are you a vanilla, a chocolate, or a twist fan? And to dip or not to dip? Answers in the comments, please!

Summer snacking definitely favors grab-and-go convenience, but it’s also about enjoying a great-tasting treat — especially if you are one to indulge your sweet tooth. Fans of cookies,  brownies and snack cakes want a fresh, homemade taste, but the field of choices narrows significantly when your are gluten intolerant. If you are on a gluten-free diet, let me introduce you to Ethel’s Baking Company Dessert Bars. Individually wrapped and ready to toss in your bag for a trip the park, the beach, or for mid-afternoon office snacking, Ethel’s Dessert Bars are baked from a family recipe with only the freshest, high quality ingredients and they are certified gluten free! I recently received samples of two varieties of Ethel’s  Dessert Bars for review on the blog, and I found them to be as tasty and indulgent as a slice of fresh, homemade pie.

With Tea Drops, a delicious and convenient way to drink tea that takes the tea bag completely out of the equation, you can have both!

Pink Thing of The Day: Box of Pink Limes

Waiting in line to get into Trader Joe’s: It is a thing that we do now.  While standing in a recent TJ’s queue, I had a moment to snap a pic of the nearby sidewalk fruit stand, where a vibrantly-hued box of Pink Limes was clearly on display.  These Limes with the brand name  Pink come from a produce supplier called JadeProduce, and the limes are not actually pink inside, just to clear up any confusion. Wouldn’t it be cool though, if they were?
