Michigan Mama’s Product Faves (Fall Edition) 2021
It’s that time again! Time for my “Michigan Mama’s Product Faves” fall edition for 2021! Check out these awesome new products I recently got to review and share with you all.
I received 3 samples (flavors) of Kombucha in exchange for this review. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Beverage brand KÖE Kombucha is here to replace those unhealthy sodas in your children’s lunch box with a probiotic-packed drink.
KÖE Kombucha is fruit-forward and USDA Organic which makes it the perfect healthy drink swap. KÖE was created for non-kombucha drinkers, especially parents who are seeking a delicious, functional, sparkling beverage without the vinegary taste for their children. Formulated with just 9g sugar and 35 calories in a can, KÖE is shelf stable to take on-the-go.
KÖE Kombucha – the fruit-forward, USDA Organic and packed with probiotics drink – makes a healthier soda swap option to take on any Summer adventure, whether it be a beach trip, shopping excursion, or short hike. KÖE was created for non-kombucha drinkers – people seeking a delicious, functional, sparkling beverage without the vinegary taste. Formulated with just 9g sugar and 35 calories in a can, KÖE is shelf stable to take on-the-go.
“At KÖE we believe in creating beverages that fit your lifestyle…completely. By that we mean not only is our kombucha healthful in its ability to fortify your digestive system but, unlike others, it is also super convenient because it’s in a can and doesn’t require refrigeration. Yes, that’s right, we worked for years to figure out the secret to producing a kombucha with probiotics that can live in the can.”
KÖE is produced with the highest standards in mind: Made with real fruit juice and purees, no artificial ingredients or sweeteners, billions of Live Probiotics per can, USDA Organic, Vegan, gluten-free, kosher certified, and 100% Organic Cane Sugar!
Let me just say, these beverages are amazing and tasty too! We received 3 flavors:
- Strawberry Lemonade
- Lemon Lime
You can currently get a case of 12 of Amazon for $26.99!
I got to try out the Mango and Lemon Lime. Soooo good! I was bummed when it was gone. My oldest daughter tried the Strawberry Lemonade and loved it!
You can definitely tell that these products are a healthy and a great alternative to other beverages out there. I highly recommend Kombucha for the whole family!
A big thanks to KÖE for giving us the opportunity to try out your products. They are awesome!
Eco Lips Pure & Simple Line (& BEE FREE Line)
I received samples of Eco Lips lines (3 pack value each $10.49) and lip mask (value $9.99) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Pure & Simple line https://ecolips.com/collections/pure-simple-lip-balm
USDA Certified Organic and 100% edible formula made from food-grade ingredients. Yes, edible! Great for kids too. This back-to-basics Pure & Simple lip balm line is packaged in their new Plant Pod® Innovation – the first 100% plastic-free plant tube. Offered in a variety of flavors including Coconut, Raspberry, and Vanilla. Delicious, pure and simple.
This back-to-basics Pure & Simple lip balm is made with just FOUR ingredients – sunflower oil, beeswax, Vitamin E, and flavor. Certified organic and 100% edible – yes, you actually eat it!
This pack features 3 of their Pure & Simple flavors: Raspberry, Coconut, and Vanilla.
- 100% edible, food-grade ingredients
- Great for the whole family, including kids
- Moisturizes and protects lips
These 3 flavors are a hit! If you have a young one who tends to eat chapsticks or lip balms, you won’t have to worry about these products being toxic and unsafe if consumed. Gotta love that, right? It’s actually okay to take a bite out of it, though I would strictly use it for lip purposes only. 😉
I love how soft my lips feel using this product, especially this time of year. The scents are amazing and I love using all three flavors every day. So good!
I also received the Bee Free vegan lip balm that combines candelilla wax with organic cocoa butter and coconut oil to leave your lips nice and soft. My 12-year-old is in love with sweet mint! Superfruit and Lemon-Lime are awesome too. No worrying about our lips around here!
Last but not least, I also received EcoLips Intensive Overnight Lip Mask. It’s blackberry flavored and my absolute favorite! My lips have been extremely dry and cracked and I’m already seeing great improvement just in two nights of use. Highly recommended!!
I would like to thank the folks over at Eco Lips for these amazing product lines. We highly recommend all of them, especially due to the fact that natural ingredients are only used in them. Can’t beat that!
Cashflow for Kids
I received the game Cashflow for Kids ($69.97 value) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
This board game series is inspired by the wildly popular New York Times best-selling book, Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.
So initially, I was excited about this game opportunity to really enhance and teach money skills to my youngest daughter. You might be slightly thrown at first as the game does say…” what the rich teach their kids about money” on the top left of the box. I am by no means rich haha but I think the concept, in general, is great for a child to learn about money. If you manage your money correctly, you do have the potential to be rich, right? Maybe… 😉
Check out their full story/background here.
I am excited to utilize this game with our 12-year-old to really grasp the concept of money in general. Raise her “financial IQ’ so to speak. Heck, I’m willing to raise mine too!! Never too old, right? It’s a great educational game for the whole family.
CASHFLOW and CASHFLOW for Kids aren’t your average financial literacy games. The award-winning personal finance games use the best components of stock-investing games, business-building games, and real estate-investing games to challenge players’ perceptions of how to generate and sustain wealth.
The object of the board games is to increase each player’s financial IQ so they can maximize earning potential, build more passive income through investments, stop working so hard and find ways to make their money work for them. Ultimately, players will learn how to get out of the “rat race” and onto the “fast track” – both in the game and in the real world.
Sounds interesting right? I mean in all reality, many of us do have to work really hard for our money and that’s okay! It feels good to earn that money, but what better way to teach stronger skills and values? I think this game is best suited for this aspect. If you then find yourself getting your money to work for you, well kudos to you! That’s amazing!
Key features of the game:
- Asset Cards
- Liability Cards
- Sunshine Cards
- Cash (play money)
- Financial Statement
and then of course your game items such as a spinner wheel, game board, dice, game pieces, and tokens.
Have you and your family ever played this game together? I would love to hear about it in the comments. Please share your thoughts with us!
I would like to thank the folks over at Rich Dad for providing us with this game to try out together as a family.
