New Hall Farm Ice Cider is delicious!

Newhall Farm Ice Cider made by Eden Ice Cider

To order yours go to

We loved reviewing the Newhall Farm Ice Cedar. Perfect as a wedding wine and for serving at dessert time or even instead of dessert.  Made with a combination of apples from New Hall Farm's apples. I rarely take a sip of alcohol so this is perfect for anyone wanting to add a little flair to a meal but want to avoid the side effects of drinking liquor.  Perfect  for a special occasion as it has a wonderful celebrating feel. I served this with cheese and crackers and slices of apples for my husband and I as a romantic dish. It has a nice crisp sweet fruity flavor. I give this a 5 out of 5 stars. We did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

The best paper plates for those who want to stay green


To order

There is always plenty of work to do around our house so there are times when we purchase all paper products to get through the humps of remodeling. It saves so much time and we are able to go back to work sooner. It was a pleasure to review the World Centric paper products. They shipped an assortment of products for us to try. I was amazed at the high quality of all the items. It was also great to find that World Centric products are non-polluting, non-toxic and environmentally responsible. Made from renewable resources. They are also available in custom designs and certified compostable. I made BBQ chicken to test out the strength of this product and was really pleased. It held up great and the best part was NO DISHES! The technology behind these products is pretty amazing. They are responsible from start to finish in making their products and it was good news to discover that everything was well documented - Perfect for those who have extensive questions or want to learn more about living a greener lifestyle. We did receive these products for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.
