Sugar Twin Packaging Change

We know there are a lot of you out there who buy Sugar Twin and we know why. It is a great sugar substitute with a one to one ratio for sweetness. So it can easily be swapped in for sugar, cup for cup. But you may have been noticing some changes with this great product. B&G Foods, the manufacturer of Sugar Twin has redesigned the logo and packaging for the product line that is distributed in the US. You can see the changes illustrated in the image here. The Sugar Twin products distributed in Canada will still have the familiar old packaging style for now. Rest assured that the contents are exactly the same and only the picture on the box has changed and keep enjoying the sweetness of Sugar Twin!

Love the pet, Hate the pet hair: A friendly guide to shedding management!

For all the pet owners out there who are overwhelmed by their pet's tendency to shed, we have heard your cry. Consider these wonderfully creative options to help create a more constructive environment for you and your pet.

  • Weave blankets - If it can keep a sled dog warm in the arctic wind, just think how toasty you will be as snug as a bug in a rug. But really, check for fleas first.
  • Use it to stop oil spills - Now here is a great way we can all pitch in to show our love for the environment, just shear your pet and send it to your nearest coastal disaster.
  • Create jewelry - Blood diamonds? Not on my conscience! Precious metals? So ostentatious! Oh, look what the cat brought in. Perfect!
  • Make fancy pottery - The only thing that would make little Timmy's vase/ash tray/paper weight/clump thingy better is if he rolled it around on the floor first. How unique!
  • Fashion your own clothes - How could anyone possibly improve upon the perfectness of nature? These are stunning! Just don't wear them out in the rain because the "wet dog" smell takes a little of the majesty away.

These tastefully inspired creations are just the tip of the iceberg when you start to think outside the "litter" box. (pet humor). But how then to I start to gather up the hair for these crafts, you ask. Many have searched for the best vacuum for pet hair and some have bought pet hair magnets, lint rollers, masking tape, or some other crazy contraption. Often these do not clean well, and when they do, the pet hair is often irretrievable.

Enter Shed Guard from the folks at B&G who brought you Static Guard! Simply spray the affected area and then wipe up the hair with the special brush cap. The truth is, this stuff really works wonders. Check out this short video to see for yourself.

Get your order of Shed Guard today and you could be pet hair free by tomorrow!

Take the Tea Test

Click to open a full view of the image to really see the difference clearly!
Have you ever wondered why your tea lacks bold rich flavor? Do you kill the nutritional value of the tea with scoops of sugar and splashes of cream? Try tearing open one of those tea bags to see whats inside. We took a bag of Bonomelli Chamomile Tea and another leading brand of tea and did just that. The results were impressive. Bonomelli is an all natural tea that uses all parts of the chamomile flower harvested when the essential oils of the plant are at their peak period to ensure the highest quality. You can clearly see the actual parts of the flower and the quality of the ingredients. The other tea bag looked like it had a mixture of saw dust and plant particles.

Try it yourself! Take a bag of your favorite tea and open it up. We would love to see what you find. Post a picture and let us know if your tea passes the test.
