pizza...i want PIZZA!!! and a GIVEAWAY!

This post brought to you by FRESCHETTA®. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love pizza. I think most of America loves pizza, right? So when I was contacted by Freschetta, to try a new product, i jumped at the chance. (well, enthusiastically typed yes, but whatev!) The new product is FRESCHETTA® By the Slice and it is good stuff!


There are four different flavors. BBQ recipe chicken, Vegetable medley, chicken, spinach, and mushroom, and lastly, six cheese medley.

Now, you long time friends and readers know that I'm allergic to mushrooms, so I chose the BBQ chicken pizza. I don't have a microwave, but I DO have a toaster oven. There are instructions for both, so I used the directions for the oven. In less than 20 minutes, i had a piping hot, ginormous slice of BBQ chicken pizza to enjoy. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how the pizza tasted. The crust was crispy, the meat was hot, and the flavor was incredible. I will say that I would have preferred the onions to be softer, as well as the peppers, but even when i picked them off, the flavor was still in there...and was delicious! Being able to have one slice of pizza vs. a whole pizza is definately a plus too! I don't eat a whole pizza...and the one slice was just the right amount!

have you guys heard about prefense?  This is a new product.  There are so many hand sanitizers out there, and i worry about using them with the children...however, this product is wonderful!  There is no alcohol, so I don't worry about the children using it!  It dries quickly, and I found that there was little to no smell after application.  I truly love this product!

These opinions are all mine, and I was sent a free sample of prefense for the purpose of this review!
