Disclaimer: I was provided with a Halloween Survival Kit from Puritan’s Pride and one to giveaway to a reader.
This kit is really going to be more of a holiday survival kit, but that’s OK. Once the holidays begin it is so hard to avoid cookies, candies, and just all around temptations!
What’s included in the kit?
Stevia with Fiber
Green Coffee Bean Extract 400mg
Probiotic Acidophilus with Pectin
Ginger Honey Crystals
From Puritan Pride:

Green Coffee Bean contains antioxidant properties.*

The first thing I tried was the Ginger Honey Crystals. Positively addicting if you have a taste for ginger, which I do. I often boil a few slices of ginger and mix in some honey in the evenings for tea and this tastes just like fresh made, but you just pour the crystals in a cup and add hot water. I’ve been drinking it at work and I’m pretty sure I”ll be getting this in the future. Dropping ginger slices in the hot water from those water machines at work does NOT work, just trust me on that one. I also like that the only 3 ingredients in the package are cane sugar, honey and ginger.
I don’t ever use those chemically sugar substitutes, they kind of freak me out. I’ve read in several places that stevia is a great, natural sugar substitute and I’ve been wanting to try it in baking but currently I’m using agave. The stevia in this kit is in packets like the kind you use in tea so it’s better for the convenience of keeping a few in you purse for when you are in a restaurant and all they have are those scary pink and blue packages of sweetener. I don’t usually add sugar to my drinks but I’m trying the stevia in my coffee now. No weird aftertaste, win. Plus it looks like fine ground sugar and I tasted it from the package, tastes like sugar to me!
I didn’t try the other items though I have been told by everyone I know that I should take acidophilus for my ulcerative colitis, so I will have to try it out. Oh, and here’s an interesting article I found on green coffee bean extract.
