Beyond the Shaker is more than your typical seasoning supply shop. They are a site that introduces consumers to many of the immense variations of salt combinations and provides more information on salt than most people even knew existed. Information on site includes a history of salt and their expansive blog of salt application ideas. We were excited to try them. I love playing with new recipes. We chose to give Cyprus Black Lava, Bamboo Jade, Herb Garden Blend, French Herb Blend and the Chanterelle Vanilla a test run in our kitchen. Honestly, a few of the names alone made me a little skittish about trying them. Okay, its just the bamboo & vanilla parts that got me. Vanilla is something I bake with, so that one will push my boundaries a little & I cook and prepare food on bamboo – we’ve never eaten it in any way before.
My husband is one of those people who will just sprinkle seasonings on top of whatever he is eating, even after it has been cooked. With one of the salts, he tried that and it didn’t work out so well (especially since he tried to do it to my apple raisin stuffed pork chops), but I think that was operator-error, not the salt.
I feel like you get a better sampling of the flavor, if you allow it to marinate in the juices of the food you cook it with, so I sprinkled the Herb Garden Blend over the chicken when I threw it in the crockpot. It came out great and it wasn’t overly salty. I use very sparingly and was slightly afraid it would overpower the other flavors, but they have obviously formulated that one very well.
For me, I think that when I use the spices, I need to plan the meal around what I am going to use. We have been enjoying the Herb Garden Blend and have been making plans for the rest of the spices. The Chaterelle Vanilla will be next for us. We are going to try it on a leg of lamb. This will be a whole new experience for us as my boys have never had lamb & I’ve never made it myself before (any tips would be greatly appreciated).
The Cyprus Black Lava will be used on potatoes or breadsticks as the site suggests. I am planning to try out the Bamboo Jade the next time I make white fish instead of our typical Sprite & lemon marinade. My boys love hamburger night, so I think we’ll spice up the fries with the French Herb Blend next time.
This was a great site to browse. Each salt product page has recommended uses, a salt story, ingredients, and some even have a recipe or two. I highly recommend exploring the Salt Guide. There is so much information that I never knew in there, including why you shouldn’t buy iodized salt.

I was a little skeptical about how my children would feel about Bare Fruit, but I needn’t have worried. The bag was grabbed so fast that I was only able to get the one picture. The snacks are good for you and they taste great. Dried fruit is an easy way to get your daily fruit servings while on the go, which is a big deal with 4 active boys. I think this is the quietest that my boys have been in a long time, so I had to check on them. They were just sitting there enjoying the dried apples, with no complaints. They even shared it without me having to say anything to them. The dried apples were light and crisp. They also had plenty of apple flavor with a dash of cinnamon.

Last Saturday, I got together with a bunch of friends & family for an Unreal Candy party. We received a box full of 5 kinds of Unreal Candy and decided to compare them to their commercial counterparts. Everyone loved peanuts inside a chocolate candy shell, so we decided to start with Unreal 54 vs Peanut M&Ms®. After trying the Unreal 54, everyone but one guest said they thought the original tasted chemically and left a waxy aftertaste in their mouths. The Unreal version tasted like smooth chocolate. Everyone thought Unreal77 tasted MUCH better than its inspiration. The peanut butter melts in your mouth and overall it is the richest peanut butter cup I’ve ever tasted.
I love how each individual package has the nutritional information printed and a separate section with the key nutritional facts highlighted for easy comparison. Unlike traditional candy, Unreal candy is made without all the artificial dyes, flavors, preservatives, and colors. As a mom, I try to provide my children with healthy snacks and meals. To me, the words healthy and candy were an oxymoron before and am pleased that I have found a healthy alternative while still satisfying that chocolate craving.
Every week when I go grocery shopping, I always grab a candy bar & a soda at the first checkout. Its my little treat for myself (funded by my Jingit card, of course) and since it’s only once a week I’m not too worried about cheating on my normal eating habits. I have my favorites and normally get a Snickers, Twix, or Reese’s PB cup. Well, after my candy party last weekend I can honestly say I didn’t grab any of those during my 2 shopping trips this weekend.
Unreal candy is now available at many local retailers, such as CVS, Rite-Aid, and Walgreens.
I was provided with a box of Unreal candy and compensated to host an Unreal Candy party. All opinions and thoughts are my own and those of my guests.
