The New Chicken Burger from McDonald's Tampa Bay #McDChickenBurger + Giveaway


McDonald’s of Tampa Bay unveils the latest in burger innovation by introducing one of the first-to-market ground Chicken Burgers. 

Only local participating Tampa Bay McDonald’s customers will get the first taste of a unique and satisfying burger experience, using quality ground chicken (with no artificial colors or flavors). Created and crafted by local Tampa Bay McDonald’s Owner/Operators in partnership with their chicken supplier, Keystone Foods, the new Chicken Burger is grilled to perfection and perfectly complemented with tasty veggies and tempting, savory sauces all carefully assembled on a new gourmet bun.

I visited my local McDonald's to be one of the first to try the New Chicken Burger.

The chicken burger comes in two options, The Classic and The Signature
  • The Classic starts with a quarter pound ground chicken patty, topped with red onions, lettuce, tomatoes and Ranch sauce. The Classic Chicken Burger has 390 calories
  • The Signature is the same juicy ground chicken patty, offering grilled onions with lettuce, tomatoes and a tangy and sweet “Signature” sauce. The Signature Chicken Burger has 400 calories.
  • Both burgers are crafted using a new gourmet bun.  Each also offers 28 grams of protein.
I tried the Signature Chicken Burger and it tasted great.  I was a little skeptical at first, but the grilled onions and "signature" sauce gave it great flavor. Topped with the gourmet bun, I can't wait to try the Classic next time.  

Did you know?  You can substitute a chicken burger patty on a comparable beef sandwich, though an upcharge may apply.

GIVEAWAY: One Kids and Deals reader will Win a $20 Arch Card from McDonald's Tampa Bay.

Gardening With Kids: Garden in a Glove Project #CampSci

With help from Monsanto #CampSci, we were able to keep the kids busy this summer with an fun and educational Science Camp at home.

Our favorite science camp activity was Garden in a Glove.  It was easy to execute and perfect to get several kids involved.

For Garden in a Glove, you start by placing a wet cotton ball (squeeze excess water) in each finger of a plastic glove.

  • Next, place 3-5 seeds on each cotton ball.  Use a different veggie for each finger.  Make sure to label each finger.

  • Then, place a second wet cotton ball in each finger, and make sure the seeds are between the two cotton balls.

  • Blow air into the glove and seal it.  Place where your glove will have good sun exposure.
  • After 5 to 9 days, your seeds should be getting too big for glove.  
  • Move them to mini carton boxes filled with soil.
  • Place them outside, water them, and watch them grow.

Ours are still growing, we can't wait to eat our new veggies...

Disclosure: I received #CampSci activity packs from Monsanto in exchange for this post.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Amazingly Beautiful Facial Skin Care : Review & Giveaway (3 Winners)

How cute are these personalized bottles!  I was so surprised to find my name of the bottle of Amazingly Beautiful Skin Care system I received from Trusted Health Products.

Turns out every bottle comes to you personalized, it's such a sweet touch.  

So what is Amazingly Beautiful?
Amazingly Beautiful uses a rare combination of live fruit, nut and plant extracts to feed your skin cells and promote youthful, moist, beautiful glowing skin.

The skin care system comes with A.M. Moisturizer and a P.M Revitalizer: 

  • The  A. M. Moisturizer Ingredients are 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, avocado and olive.
  • The P. M. Revitalizer Ingredients are 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, evening primrose and apricot.

I love that the Amazingly Beautiful products are 100% pure – No preservatives, parabens, GMOs, synthetic chemicals or additives of any kind.  It the best thing you can give to your skin.

I was worried about putting oil on my skin morning and night, and whether it would make my face greasy, but it hasn't happened at all. It actually feeds your skin what it needs in order for it to be luminous, beautiful and healthy.

The instructions are to put 2 to 3 drops on each cheek.  Your skin recognizes Amazingly Beautiful as food and therefore will be hungry for it and may require more drops initially.  I've seen how I've slowly started to need less drops each day.

I've really enjoyed using Amazingly Beautiful daily.  My skin feels healthier, and I love knowing that because of all the great ingredients it will take the place of anti-aging creams, cleansers firming creams, exfoliaters, moisturizers, day/night creams, make-up removers, body lotions, nutrient pacts and more.

There is so much more information about Amazingly Beautiful, make sure to find out all the details HERE.

SPECIAL OFFER:  For a limited time, the manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They would love to have my readers try out Amazingly Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer (for women) or The Man A.M. Moisturizer (for men) and agreed to send one bottle FREE if you would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge. This is a one-time only offer!  They also agreed to include 2 eye-opening reports – The Poisons You Put On Your Face Everyday and Why Your Skin Care Products Have Never Worked: The Truth Revealed .”  That’s a total value of over $40.00. Click here to get your FREE Bottle and FREE reports now!”

GIVEAWAY: Three (3) Kids and Deals readers will each win their own bottle of Amazingly Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer (for women).
