Ovaltine’s More than Just a Drink Mix!

FacebookTwitterPinterestAmazon Wish ListShare

I’ve mentioned Ovaltine a few times in the past and I have nothing but good things to say about it. First of all, it’s tasty! Second, it’s filled with vitamins and minerals, and third, it’s chocolate for goodness sake! Everyone knows that it’s a healthier way to drink your “chocolate milk” and in my opinion, a tastier one. However, there are a few other benefits to Ovaltine that even I didn’t think about!

“Honey, please drink your milk”! I think all mom’s have said this about a bazillion times, and with any luck you may have coaxed them into drinking half of the glass. With a few scoops of Ovaltine, you can kiss that phrase goodbye, because the kids will sip it right down with no problem and they’ll even ask for more!

Try Ovaltine with Fat Free Milk! Mixing Ovaltine with Fat-Free Milk (170 calories per serving) will give you 35% of your calcium for the day, along with Vitamin A, C, E, iron and B vitamins. You’ll also be getting Vitamin D from the milk. Considering 3 out of 4 Americans don’t get enough Vitamin D, this is a tasty way to get what your body needs!

It’s Chocolate! Chocolate has it’s own benefits (well, I like to think it does) and if your looking for a healthier way to get your chocolate fix, then allow Ovaltine to be your guide! Often times I crave chocolate at night and a glass of Ovaltine always does the trick!

It’s Healthier for Santa too! My friend Sara over at “Deal”icious Mom pointed out last week that Santa may be tired of “boring old milk”! I think she may be right and (ahem), Santa could perhaps use a healthier option, don’t you think?

And you thought it was just chocolate milk!

Getting Fresh with a Friend…

Shame on you!  This is a family friendly site!  But, since I have your attention, I suppose I should share with you that “Getting Fresh with a Friend” is Cottonelle’s new campaign where you can share the news about “staying fresh” with Cottonelle Flushable Wipes with a friend and score some sweet savings for both of you!

Truth be told, we have been using flushable wipes for many years now and I would never go back to just plain old toilet paper to “stay fresh”.  Toilet paper leaves things behind and in my humble opinion, I just don’t feel like you really get “that” clean with just toilet paper. I was pleasantly surprised when we tried Cottonelle and found that their wipes were much softer and thicker than any we have previously tried. Cottonelle flushable moist wipes just feel fresh…no pun intended!

Hang it Where you Want it!
Previously, our wipe containers have either found themselves on the top of the bathroom counter or in the small drawer next to the potty and neither place was exactly a good one.  Cottonelle has set out to change all of that by including a FREE EasyReach hanger with Command brand strips from 3M with every box of Cottonelle Fresh Flushable Moist Wipes to ensure a damage-free hang.  Who doesn’t want easy access to their “get fresh” box?  You now have the option of placing it above the toilet paper, below the toilet paper or anywhere else that you think would be within easy reach while your…well…you know. I was rather impressed with how easy the Easy Reach hanger went on and how strong the adhesive is.  The best part is that I can remove it at anytime without damaging my walls.

Get Fresh with a Friend and You’ll Both Score $1 Off Coupons
Cottonelle gets that sharing flushable moist wipes with a friend isn’t as natural as sharing your favorite TV show.  So, to help break the ice, Cottonelle has launched “toilet talk” @, which features a special “Funny or Die” video and $1 off coupons for both you AND a friend, in an effort to encourage people to try Cottonelle flushable moist wipes!

So what are you waiting for? Head over to Toilet Talk and “Get Fresh with a Friend”!
