Matcha Organics’ Matcha Culinary Green Tea Powder Review

Matcha Organics’ Matcha Culinary Green Tea Powder Review First Taste Test:

(This is the Matcha Green Tea from Matcha Organics that I was able to buy for a discounted rate to drink and review.) CANADA
USA Here:

I have not made anything from the Top 100 Matcha Recipes Ebook. I’ve just been drinking this straight up with water or more recently with beet root powder in my “Blender Bottle”.

The green tea powder will settle on the bottom of your cup/bottle so drink it in one shot if possible or you’ll have to keep re-stirring or re-shaking…

Can’t say that I’ve noticed any increases in energy (to be fair almost nothing works supplement-wise) or mood… or weight loss… which is probably because I’m more on the less-than-active side of the fitness lifestyle spectrum (whatever! LOL). [If you’re going to take supplements and matcha green tea you’ll definitely want to be somewhat active to enjoy the benefits of taking your daily doses of this healthy stuff. notice how even just going out for a brisk walk makes you feel more alive and energetic?]

This match green tea definitely has a strong recognizable green tea taste. I’m not even trying to re-adjust to weaken the overwhelming strength of the powder on my taste buds. Smells like green tea ice cream too when you open up the resealable pouch.

I really like green tea ice cream… (the mango one is great too!) whenever I have room left over from eating sushi and my usual chucken katsu/sometimes chicken teriyaki. I will have to try making some with matcha powder…

I also enjoy green tea. I should totally make some hot green tea…


I still have about half of the bag left to drink/bake/cook with.

Time to finish my daily morning bottle of Matcha Culinary Green Tea Powder from Matcha Organics… blog ya later,

P.S. Earlier this year when at the local playground with my older sister and my niece, one mother was asking another mother whether she had tried something called Matcha Green Tea… (she was prettyt excited about it) now that I’ve been drinking this stuff I have something to talk about with these mums!

P.P.S. I didn’t realize this until after ordering that this green tea is sourced from… yup, you guessed it C-H-I-N-A. ugh. But then again there’s the whole Fukushima thingy which I was looking into earlier this year when doing research on the safety of matcha green tea from Japan and found a forum where they were just blasting away and openly mocking someone questioning if this stuff was safe… craziness.

P.P.P.S. I’ve continued to drink coffee with my Matcha Organics… NO JITTERS!

Honey Land Honeycomb with Gift Box Unboxing & Taste Test Review

Honeycomb from The Land Flowing with Milk & Honey…?!

Yes please!

I’m am quite pleased with my Honey Land 100% RAW Honeycomb/beeswax in a Windowed Wood Gift Box with Latch. Check it out here:

Here’s my Honey land Honeycomb Unboxing & Taste Test Review Video:

(skip to 4mins mark – once I upload the whole video – where I finally get the lid open… and try some honeycomb LOL)

I really like the presentation! Gift box with a latch and a nice see-thru honeycomb container.

If you’re going to buy this as a gift don’t forget to remove the booklet inside the box (under the honey container). Would be weird to find that booklet about cold pressed oils. (I’m going to have to look into Pure & Natural Oil, looks promising)

Spent ~ 1 1/2 minutes licking the inside of the lid… YUM!

It was a bit annoying having to unravel that tape around the lid… lol I even washed the lid and it’s still sticky BUT not from whatever honey that leaked out before… it’s the stickiness from the tape residue!

So you may want to just transfer your honeycomb into a different container.

This honey is so sweet that it seems to good to be true. It’s almost as sweet, if not sweeter
than the stuff you can buy in the supermarket and those are known to contain little honey and
mostly added sugar…

I had honeycomb/beeswax from a local place once and I don’t recall much flavour or sweetness… I
mainly just recall chewing on the beeswax and wondering if I was supposed to spit it out or swallow it… so I’m wondering why Honey Land can be so naturally sweet.

I’ve been using Honey Land on toast (spooning up the “melted” honey alongside the bottom of the container).

I have yet to take a nice chunk and chew away… have only tried using my fingers and just had a few waxy tiny bits in my mouth.

DISCLAIMER: I did buy my Honey Land Honeycomb with a discount code so I could taste and review my very own supply.

Looks like someone forgot to renew the domain name… so I’m wondering when these Honey Land honeycombs were sent into Amazon.

Based on the taste & sweetness of Honey Land’s Honeycomb plus the nice windowed & latched wooden gift box I would recommend this for all honey/honeycomb lovers and gift givers.

Thanks for watching & reading,


NEW Blazin’ Beef Nacho Pizza Pops Review

*NEW Blazin’ Beef Nacho Pizza Pops Review

Sorry for not adding better photos and not having a video for my Pizza Pops Review… I can’t find the nikon camera and I have no idea where the cord is to recharge the Sony camcorder either… *sigh*

I went to Safeway Christmas Eve to grab my [NOT] free (keep reading) Pizza Pops with the huge coupon I received (along with FIVE “Buy One, Get One Free!” coupons).

I was initially disappointed since Safeway did not have the NEW Kickin’ Buffalo Chicken Pizza Pops I really wanted to try… but I did find the NEW Blazin’ Beef Nacho!

During check-out the young girl did write down the price of the pizza pops in the field on the coupon… I wasn’t paying much attention… I told Rachel (my cashier) about how I was going to do a review for the pizza pops… I had assumed that she had SCANNED the FREE Pizza Pops Coupon but I later found out that I had paid full retail price for my “free” pizza pops… $8.99 + tax


What’s interesting about buying the Blazin’ Beef Nacho Pizza Pops is that I had bought one of those monster meal box thingies from Taco Bell Christmas Eve as well… so that taco/nacho/mexican flavour was fresh in my mind and lingering on my taste buds.


New-Blazing-Beef-Nacho-Pizza-Pops-2-Pizza-Pops-WrapperI waited until yesterday (Christmas day) to finally open the 8-pack (YES! There are EIGHT yummy pizza pops in the box!) box… they come 2 per plastic wrapper so 2 pizza pops x 4 wrappers per box. I nuked one for 1 minute (on high which is “10” on my microwave) and then flipped it over for another minute… asmany of you will be familiar with there was a little bit of “leakage” with my Blazin’ Beef Nacho… which was awesome as I licked it and actually said out loud in a quiet & satisfied way “Mmmm, love it.” I did find it a little bit spicy. (I love spicy food btw)

It does say on the box to wait like 2 minutes (after microwaving) before eating the pizza pops… I don’t know anyone that can manage to wait the long when they are screaming at you to “EAT ME!”… how can you resist eating them immediately?! Am I right?

I have to say that I enjoyed my Blazin’ Beef Nacho more than the Taco Bell I had earlier. I made one for my mom. And then nuked two at the same time for 1 1/2 on high and then flipped them over for another 2 minutes. One for my little sister and another one for myself (of course!)… you know what? I’ll be back in a few… time to grab me some pizza pops before I finish this review… brb!

I’m back…!

2 New Blazin' Beef Nacho Pizzz Pops on a Plate

After using WINDOWS 8.1 photo app to take photos with the laptop cam and then trying to find out where the photos saved to and trying to copy them to the desktop… (freaking annoying btw) the pizza pops have cooled down… no longer piping hot but still good eats!

So now I only have 2 left. Good thing I have FIVE “Buy One, Get One Free!” coupons!!!

I can almost guarantee that I’m going to love me some Kickin’ Buffalo Chicken Pizza Pops!

Another thing I really like about the Pizza Pops is how EASY it is to tear open the wrappers. The last thing you want to do is struggle with a damn wrapper and then look for scissors or a knife and then accidentally stabbing your hand while opening the wrapper…

New-Blazing-Beef-Nacho-Pizza-Pops-Box-VerticleI’m not sure how people can wait for their Pizza Pops to BAKE in the oven… 19-22 minutes and then 5 minutes to cool down…??? But there is that healthier option… might have to try that one of these days… if I can wait for a frozen pizza to bake then I can…

Ahhhh! Light bulb moment! I can freakin’ bake all 8 at once!!! Sweet. (I’m not the youngster I once was so I doubt I could eat all 8 by myself in one sitting… SO! Here’s an idea… grab one or two boxes and invite your friends over for a PIZZA POPS PARTY! – now why didn’t I think of this before?! Seriously. Who doesn’t LOVE Pizza Pops? Try the NEW Flavours!)

Pizza Pops. Tasty. Convenient. Quick. And quite inexpensive.

I recommend trying the NEW! Blazin’ Beef Nacho Pizza Pops.


P.S. I don’t know if you can tell from one of the photos above but that empty space you see in my mouth… where the missing tooth used to be…? I ate a Delissio Pizza and I’m assuming that the HARD crust helped in breaking it off. LOL SO… eat more pizza pops and less pizza… it could save you from losing a tooth! LOL

*Disclaimer: I did receive coupons for Pizza Pops via Bzz Agents for their Pizza Pops Feed The Beast Campaign
