Pagoda® Snacks are the Perfect Bite for all of your Holiday Parties!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pagoda®. The opinions and text are all mine.

I can hardly believe that the holiday season is upon us! One of the things that I love the most about this time of the year is getting together with friends and family. Many of us are so busy during the year that the holidays are the perfect time to catch up. Of course, any get-together requires delicious and easy bites so that we can enjoy every moment together.

Some of my favorite bites for holiday entertaining are Pagoda® Snacks. Not only are Pagoda Snacks delicious, but they have zero trans fats, use no artificial food dyes, have no high fructose corn syrup, and no MSG. In addition, they are also easy to prepare, which is a huge plus in my book! The last thing that I want to do while preparing for a party is to be in the kitchen all day long cooking. Pagoda Snacks can be easily prepared in the microwave or oven and ready to eat in just minutes! They are so crunchy and delicious and are sure to be a hit with everyone at the party!

My family and I tried the Pagoda Snacks White Meat Chicken Egg Rolls and the Pork Potstickers that I purchased at my local Publix. Both were equally delicious and the taste was amazing! One of the things that I loved the most about the Pagoda Snacks was the freshness of each product. This is understandable as each product is made with fresh, quality ingredients.

The Pagoda Snacks White Meat Chicken Egg Rolls are made with the perfect combination of 100% white meat chicken, freshly-cut vegetables and authentic seasonings. They also come with a delicious Sweet Chili dipping sauce that is the perfect complement!

The Pagoda Snacks Pork Potstickers are equally delicious. Tender pork, freshly-cut vegetables, and authentic seasonings come together to create this delicious snack. Pan-fried or steamed, Pagoda Pork Potstickers are so yummy! Be sure to dip them in the Lime Ponzu sauce to experience a full-flavored and zesty bite!

Stock up on Pagoda Snacks at your local Publix so that you can be prepared for all of your holiday parties! Be sure to use the digital coupon offer found HERE: so that you can save on these delicious and easy snacks!

Sprouts is Now Open in Palm Harbor! #NewKaleInTown

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written through a partnership with Sprouts Farmers Market.  Please see my disclosure policy) 

I am thrilled to share with you that Sprouts Farmers Market is now open in Palm Harbor! This is the 4th Florida store to be added to the market. Sprouts currently has 277 stores nationwide and they are growing at a rate of 30 new stores each year! Sprouts sets themselves apart from the other healthier option stores as they offer healthy living at prices we can all afford. I love that!

Tuesday night, I had the opportunity to visit the new location for their Friends & Family Night and a behind-the-scenes blog tour. I have been anticipating this day for months, so to attend the grand opening festivities was such a pleasure! After our tour of the store we were given some time to shop and browse. I have heard so many wonderful things about Sprouts, so experiencing it first-hand was so much fun!

If you live near Palm Harbor, FL, I highly recommend that you head over to the new location. There are great deals to be had in every department. I especially loved the produce selection and bargains! Pineapples are $0.98, Limes 5 for $1, Mangos 2 for $1, Sweet Potatoes $0.88 lb, Green Peppers $0.88 each and more! I also love that Sprouts offers items for every lifestyle. Whether you eat organic, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, etc…Sprouts offers quality products that we all can afford. In addition, Sprouts also offers mobile coupons so be sure to download their mobile app to take advantage of even more savings! My favorite way to save at Sprouts is Double Ad Wednesday. Because the weekly ad prices run from Wednesday to Wednesday, you can save even more in the middle of the week when the ads overlap. Two ads on one day means double the deals! I love this feature!

As we walked around the store, I was immediately drawn to the selection and quality of products offered. The bulk selections are also amazing! And, did you know that Sprouts offers an open sample policy? If you want to try a product tell a team member and they will let you taste it! Sprouts stores contain around 18,000 products, 90 percent of which are natural or organic. The store also offers more than 2,000 Sprouts Brand items. From everyday staples to innovative specialty items, Sprouts Brand products meet strict quality standards while delivering exceptional value, unique flavor profiles and quality customers can trust.

I love that the produce section is right in the center of the store. Sprouts’ produce prices are on average 20 to 25 percent below other supermarkets. The quality is also amazing! The pineapple and mangos that I purchased were the juiciest that I have ever eaten. So delicious!

Refrigerated and baked goods. They have a wide selection of gluten free items which I love! Just search for the orange tag to distinguish gluten free items from the others. Brilliant!

Personal care and supplements for every member of the family. Sprouts offers a Vitamin Extravaganza promotion several times a year so be on the lookout for upcoming dates. This sale offers customers a 25 percent savings off all vitamins, supplements and health and body care items! 

Refrigerated and Dairy Items

Bulk Spices. So clever! You can buy as little or as much of these spices as you need. What a great way to try new spices without purchasing the entire bottle!

Meats Galore! Steak, Seafood, Chicken and More.

Refrigerated Goods and Bagged Snacks

Local Finds

Coffee Heaven! I can’t wait to try the delicious flavors!

Overall, I am thrilled with the options that Sprouts offers their customers. The selection and pricing of organic, gluten free and specialty items is amazing. I can’t wait to go back and try more of the Sprouts brand products as I have heard remarkable things about them! I have never tried Kombucha (can you believe it?) and Sprouts offers a wide variety in a huge assortment of flavors. I will have to let you know how I like it!

You can stay up-to-date on all of the latest Sprouts promotions and news by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And, don’t forget to download the Sprouts mobile app to save even more!

Stay tuned as I will be sharing a recipe on the blog for Grilled Chicken Thighs With Tropical Salsa and Jasmine Rice. I purchased all of the ingredients at Sprouts and fed my family of four for under $10!
