Ghirardelli Milk & Truffle Chocolate Squares Review


It is no secret that I love my chocolate.  In fact I'm actually indulging in some right now as I do often when I'm working on the computer at night.  This is my time.  The children are sound asleep, hubby is doing the dishes (I'm a lucky girl!) and I get to pick a treat out of my chocolate stash conveniently located in the cabinets above my computer. 


The chocolate I had tonight is the newest flavor of Ghirardelli Squares ~ Milk & Truffle.  Nine delicious squares of chocolate are individually wrapped and packaged in a beautiful blue bag.  The Milk & Truffle squares have a truffle filling inside milk chocolate.  The chocolate is incredibly smooth and creamy and is not overly rich.  My favorite things about Ghirardelli Squares is that you can make one piece of it last more than a second.  It is the perfect size to take a bite, savor for a moment then finish.  My only wish for this chocolate would be for there to be more of it in the bag!

Disclosure:  I received a sample of this product from She Speaks in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

Jelly Kitten ~ Bashful Bunny Review

If you're looking for a sweet addition to an Easter basket that doesn't include the usual chocolates and candy this bunny is a darling alternative.  You can find the Jelly Kitten Bashful Bunny from Hello Baby.  This adorable long eared bunny is ready for cuddling. As soon as it arrived at our house my daughter attached herself to it. 

The bashful bunny is so incredibly soft and sweet.  I love the long ears.  They are perfect for playing peek-a-boo with a little one.


In addition to selling baby toys, Hello Baby sells a wide variety of baby and nursery gear including furniture, travel and safety products.  The site even has a blog and baby advice pages you can check out for articles on all things related to baby.  It's definitely a site to check out if you're preparing for a little one or looking for a unique baby gift.

Disclosure: I received this product for the purpose of an honest review. No compensation was received. All opinions are 100% mine. View my disclosure policy.

Test Products & Earn with Synovate Opinion Panel



You can join one of my favorite survey companies right now. I've been a member of Synovate for over 5 years. There are a lot of things I really like about it. First, Synovate is great because it will reward you with points for each survey even if you don't fully qualify for it. You can redeem your points for cash and they allow you to receive a check as soon as you've earned only $5. They have other reward options to, but it's nice to get cash from them since many other panels don't give you that option.

Synovate is also the survey panel I have received the most product tests from. In the past couple of years I have received free products to test including oatmeal, tissues, body lotion, diapers & wipes! And finally Synovate has monthly sweepstakes that all survey participants are entered in. I've never won one of these, but I have heard from someone that has. So it does happen. You can join Synovate Global Opinion Panel now by clicking on the banner above.
