Product Review: BariatricPal French Vanilla Caramel Soft Calcium Chews

This product review was sponsored by BariatricPal. All opinions are my own.  Aw yeah! BariatricPal has thrown its hat into the ring with its very own soft calcium chew! I’m so excited.

Product Review: Nutri-Noodles Soybean Fettuccine

This product review was sponsored by NutriNoodle. All opinions are my own. So this Nutri-Noodle review starts out, as so many of my posts do, with a caveat. This is a review in progress!
