Pic’s (Really Good) Peanut Butter {Review}

Pics-Seriously-Good-Peanut-Butter-300x172I don’t know about the rest of the moms and dads out there, but my household would not survive without peanut butter. I love it, my husband loves it and now my kids love it. We can eat it on pretty much anything! When Burrito Buzz got the chance to sample some peanut butter, I was all about it! I will admit, my family and I prefer JIF and Ppb6eter Pan, but we remained open-minded to Pic’s Peanut Butter, which is gourmet and all natural.

Pic’s (Really Good) Peanut Butter is simply made in New Zealand from only peanuts and less than 1% of salt. It can’t get much better than that! The company uses hi-oleic peanuts from Australia to make the peanut butter. The hi-oleic peanuts are GMO free and according to Pic’s “are resistant to staleness” and “keep their fresh roasted flavor and crunchiness long after ordinary peanuts go tasteless and mushy.” I can attest that even after having it for several weeks, the crunchy is still crunchy! Like the company states on their website, the crunchy version of their peanut butter is not a typical crunchy with big pieces of peanuts. Pic’s crunchy peanut butter is filled with tons of peanut pieces of varying sizes, making it even crunchier!

Although my family and I ate the peanut butter without major complaints, I’m still not 100% sold on Pic’s Peanut Butter. I just don’t think it can replace our not-so-natural peanut butters (JIF especially) in our home. We did give a fair shot and I plan to continue to give it to my kiddos because it is better for them, but I can’t say I would buy it on my own. If you’re a fan of “all natural” nut butters, this one is probably for you!

Pic’s also features several other nut products on their website (Peanut Slugs, Peanut Oil, Almond Butter and Cashew Butter). Visit their website to purchase your own Pic’s peanut butter or find out how the company got started and why they who they are! I really enjoyed reading about them

Amazon (Burrito Buzz moms love our Amazon) also sells Pic’s Peanut Butter. You can purchase Pic’s Crunchy Peanut Butter, Pic’s Smooth Peanut Butter or a variety pack with both!

Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste {Review}

Getting your kids to brush their teeth isn’t always easy. Sometimes, it’s like pulling teeth to get them brushed. My little one doesn’t mind brushing her teeth usually, but she canFullSizeRender (45) sometimes be difficult and pitch a fit but it must be done. Oral health is very important, so it’s good to teach children to care for their teeth at an early age. Starting at four months, I began using a gum cleanser and finger brush to clean my oldest daughter’s gums and now she brushes twice a day, once after breakfast and once before bed. When she was old enough, I started using a well-known children’s fluoride toothpaste. But recently, I started to really look into the ingredients of everyday products my family uses and I decided to switch to natural and organic products if possible. When I was doing research for a natural children’s toothpaste, I found Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste. I was thrilled when they sent a package full (their packaging is out of this world adorable!) of their amazing goodies for my daughter to try.

My daugher was so excited to try her new raspberry flavored Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste and she immediately ran to the bathroom, ready to brush! If you’re the parent of a toddler, IMG_8611you know how happy that made me. I love she couldn’t wait to brush her teeth, something that doesn’t happen often. She used her new toothbrush from the kit and began brushing. A direct quote from her, “this toothpaste is yummy, Mommy! I want more!” She thought it was so good, she asked for more! I tasted it myself and it’s seriously really good. I love that it’s all natural and certified organic so there’s nothing harmful in it and safe to swallow. It’s fluoride and SLS free, too. I can even use it with a finger brush when my 3 month old turns 6 months old, as the toothpaste is safe for babies 6+ months! There are several yummy natural flavors to choose from: Blueberry, Strawberry, Blackcurrant, Banana and Raspberry, all have natural calendula extract as well. Each 50g tube is $6.99.

Jack ‘N Jill sent a few other awesome products for us, including their Jack N’ Jill Bio Toothbrush (the handle is made from NON GMO corn starch and is recyclable and biodegradable – how cool is that?) that FullSizeRender (47)come in several different designs, each with cute animal character on them and retail for $4.99 and a pack of their Stage 1 Silicone Finger Brushes, the pack of two brushes retails for $6.99 and are perfect for babies aged 6 months to 18 months. We also received a Rinse/Storage cup that I love, it’s also biodegradable and dishwasher safe. It’s very a very strong, thick cup that will last for years and retails for $9.99. I think the Sleepover Bag is my favorite product (because I can use it myself), it’s perfect for sleepovers at grandma and grandpa’s or a friend’s house. It stores a toothbrush and toothpaste, making it easy to pack for your little one’s overnight stay. The Sleepover Bag retails for $9.99.

Gift kits are available that include a tube of toothpaste (each kit has a different flavor and design), a toothbrush, rinse/storage cup and a sleepover bag. The kits also include a Stage 1 (6-18 months) finger brush, Stage 2 (1-3 years) baby toothbrush or Stage 3 (2-5 years) gum brush. Make IMG_8050sure you choose the appropriate kit for the age of your child. The gift kits retail for $36.99, which is a savings of $2 if you bought each product separately. Jack N’ Jill also offers an electric toothbrush that retails for $22.99 and extra brush heads that retail for $12.99, which would be perfect for older children!

Because of my daughter’s new found enthusiasm to brush her teeth and because the toothpaste seriously good (and not at all whatsoever), I give Jack N’ Jill products 5 out of 5 stars. My daughter wants to try the rest of the flavors, but thinks Blueberry would be extra yummy so she wants to order it next. To see all of Jack N’ Jill’s products, check out their website here!
