February was an awesome month for freebies! I got to try all these awesome products for free this month through one of my favorite product testing sites called BzzAgent! I’m also going to give you a little tip on a great rebate app for free cash$

I love to eat healthy and am an avid calorie counter, so Greek yogurt is a daily staple of my diet. So when I signed up for the Chobani Simply 100 Greek campaign, it was right up my alley. I received a coupon for a free Chobani Simply 100 to my local Kroger store and used it to purchase the peach flavor. I also had a store coupon for $1 off that I was able to use for 3 additional Chobani Simply 100 flavors so I picked out the strawberry, blueberry, and vanilla. As an added bonus I got to earn free money for this purchase of Chobani with a great free app called Ibotta! Ibotta is a mobile rebate app that anyone can join for free.

Now onto the product reviews…
Chobani Simply 100 Greek Yogurt
I have tried so many varieties of yogurt with all types of textures and flavors from whipped to creamy – you name it! I also have a very slow digestive system, so it is important for me to make sure I get a ton of fiber in my diet. Everyone knows that yogurt is a great source of protein and calcium, but I’ve never seen a yogurt that has fiber in it. And for only 100 calories? That’s a pretty amazing combination.
Another cool campaign from Bzz Agent in February was a free coupon for a pound of fried chicken tenders and a 1.25 liter bottle of coke from Fry’s Food, our local Kroger store. I get the baked chicken from the deli all the time, which I love, but I don’t usually eat fried foods very often. But a pound of fried chicken tenders and a bottle of coke is big enough to share with the whole family. I also got myself an 8 piece baked bbq chicken to go along with it in case I didn’t like the fried pieces. That turned out to be a good move.
Unfortunately the chicken was dry, dry dry. I don’t know how long it was sitting there but I didn’t really care for it. The hubby didn’t either. My 4 year old son Jaxon had a few pieces but also wasn’t into it. That is really saying something, since the kid only eats fried chicken or mac and cheese as a dietary staple. At least you can always count on coca cola!
International Delight Fat Free & Sugar Free Coffee Creamer
The final campaign for February was for International Delight® Fat Free & Sugar Free Coffee Creamer. I drink coffee every day. My usual go too flavor is the Walmart brand Great Value French Vanilla. It is almost identical to Coffee Mate and it costs less. I have tried many varieties of International Delight creamers in the past. They always come out with new and exciting flavors and they are very enticing. However, with each flavor I have tried, I was never super crazy about them. They always had an unnaturally sweet flavor to them, sort of how Sweet N’ Low has a weird flavor to it when compared to sugar. So I wasn’t sure that I would like the International Delight Fat Free & Sugar Free Coffee Creamer. But since I received a free coupon, I was very excited to try it.
So I took my free coupon for International Delight to my local Walmart and I chose the Fat Free & Sugar Free Caramel Creme flavor. All I can say is O.M.G.! It is awesome! It doesn’t have that weird sickly sweet taste that International Delight usually has and it’s only 15 calories a serving. It is delicious and two tablespoons is just perfect. Just enough sweetness and flavor and fat free too. I don’t feel guilty. The price could be a little better as it is much higher at $3 something compared to my usual $2 something, but if I get a coupon, I will definitely purchase again.
