249031249031B001I5ZLB4A1YUL9PCJR3JTYO. Brown "Ms. O. Khannah-Brown"3341189468800Fine Tea Experience, With Caveats****
This Cranberry Weightless tea is lovely, and has a marvelous taste. It seems to work as a diuretic, which isn't a bad thing, since it does so by promoting urological health. It probably does contribute to "Weightless" (weighing less) but only by ridding your body of excess water; still, if it can do this in a healthy way, I'm all for it. I like drinking it as a calming ritual before meals, which for me has some value, too. It seems to work for me; even more importantly, I enjoy it.

The ingredients in Traditional Medicinal's Weightless Cranberry are: bitter fennel fruit 150 mg, red clover blossom 150 mg, uva ursi leaf 135 mg, cranberry fruit concentrate 60 mg, cleavers herb 52.5 mg., as well as a proprietary blend of: organic hibiscus flower, organic roasted chicory root, organic parsley leaf, and organic stevia leaf.

Weightless Cranberry is part of a line by Traditional Medicinals that includes the original Weightless and a Weightless Cinnamon-Spice.

Traditional Medicinals seems to be a responsible company. They adhere to sustainable and fair trade practices, use organic ingredients when feasible, and base their tea formulations on sound research and knowledge.

The brewing instructions for this tea are very important: "For maximum benefit, medicinal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract.
Drink 3 cups daily, one cup before each meal, for up to 2 weeks, then pause a few days before resuming." So, Weightless is a long-brewing pre-prandial tea...if you want it to work properly.

Also note the following cautions: "Cautions: Tea containing bitter fennel fruit and uva ursi leaf are not for long-term daily use without medical advice. Contraindications: Not for use during pregnancy, while nursing, or by children under 12 years. Side Effects: Teas containing uva ursi leaf may cause nausea or vomiting in individuals and children with sensitive stomachs."

249033249033B002NGKHJ8A1CHKAWX7FAOM4L. Kirk "Crabseye"5521267056000Pleasant tasting, but graded improperlyI received this product and immediately noticed that the grading is off. The product I received seems to be a broken orange pekoe grade. It does not resemble the picture AT ALL (which does represent a TGFOP grade). All in all, I have found the tea to be pleasant tasting, not overly tannic, plenty of body. But I ordered and paid for a higher grade of tea. It's not acceptable to furnish an inferior grade of tea.
249034249034B002NGKHJ8ALGMUJ46C9MHEE. Newberg0051345766400Loved itI wanted a dark rich tea for my mornings. I use a coffee pot and brew 10 cups at a time. This was perfect. Strong, not bitter, good all-around flavor. Yes I suppose a purist may quibble, but I found this to be much better than other straight Assam teas (like the Davidson).
249035249035B002NGKHJ8AOYN1OGNN5J66ksheer20021325116800TGFOP Organic Assam TeaThe leaves are large and dark suggestive of heavy processing. Very few tips if any are visible. Good fragrance/bouquet--flowery.

Excellent on omelets and also a dish we call Costa Rica Chicken, make some rice and black beans, sauté chicken in light oil, achiote and Lizano, add green peppers, onions at end, cook to blend flavors but keep crisp. Serve over rice and beans, maybe with a little extra sauce to top it off and prepare for a savory, delicious dinner. Scrumptious meal.

249040249040B004M8JA9IAD8NTX8BZHCBDAndrew3351325721600Heat up the chocolate discThese taste great as long as you warm up the chocolate disc before brewing it. I run hot water over it while the milk disc brews.

If it is too cold in your house, they will be too solid and hardly anything will come out. It will just taste like hot water-milk. I'm guessing thats what any complaints are caused by. Check the disc after you brew, it should be empty.
249041249041B004M8JA9IAZ4EUUJVC8358Kasia1151323302400real milka tasteMilka was and will be always my favorite , and so become this Milka hot chocolate , I wish I never see the bottom of my cup.. this set come with Milka real chocolate syrup and special milk ( no cappuccino or latte ) made special to use with Milka , I love the chocolate velvety after taste , like you just had a real chocolate ... It is sweet and creamy .. and European small cup portion :(
249042249042B004M8JA9IA1S055VQ3TPTSQDMC "Movie and TV expert"1151319932800Delicious!We love this hot chocolate. It is the best we can get on Amazon. We have tried Côte d'or in France and Cadbury. They are even better, but these are not available unfortunately on Amazon US.
249043249043B004M8JA9IAORL6AKIF22TQKaren Eiding0051321488000YUM!My family loves this beverage. I "brew" the chocolate disc first and then the milk disc, not sure what is recommended, but this works for me. I typically press the manual brewing button to add just a bit more water to the chocolate disc. To make a "mocha" I add an espresso disc, really, really good!
249044249044B004M8JA9IA3JLECMNWC4LDYLorinzo0211327449600It Doesn't Deserve ANY Stars.After trying this for myself, I suspected that those high ratings were only illusions. My husband told me that company's consider these reviews as just another form of advertising and pay people to lie about a product's quality. I really can't imagine anyone thinking this product is drinkable, let alone, pleasurable. If you want a couple recommendations on decent tasting t-discs for your Tassimo machine, the Jacobs Latte Macchiato isn't bad if you add sugar. This morning though, I drank it after I tried the Voluptuoso and my mouth has a metallic taste to it. Not sure which one is responsible. Another thing, the milk in the disc tastes sour, but when you add sugar, there is a decent flavor there. For the 2nd decent beverage, you can take the Kenco Crema with some Coffee Mate's Spiced Pumpkin and Vanilla Spiced Chai (a liberal amount) creamers, with enough sugar, and have a nice smooth cappaccino. I've tried about nine flavors now, and the coffee, cremas, most lattes and cappaccinos, have the same inferior quality in looks and taste, as a cheap instant coffee, as well as, having your mouth taste like you just drank the contents of an ashtray. Kenco Crema is the only one that did not taste like nicotene. These are the coffees I've tried: Gevailia Cappaccino, Maxwell House - House Blend, Hag Crema Decaf, Jacobs Kronung, Carte Noire Voluptuoso Classic, Kenco Crema and Jacob's Macchiato. After finding one inferior brew after another, I've given up looking for a good cup of black coffee and/or cappaccino, for the Tassimo. Don't do what I did, which was believe all the positive reviews and downplay the critical reviews. My curiousity has been appeased after spending $34 in Tassimo beverages. Thankfully, 2 packages were free. Now I can either spend more money in S&H to return them, or drink all 56 cigarettes...coffee I mean. Oh by the way, for a tasty hot chocolate beverage, try Celestial Seasonings "Tuscanny" 1 bag made strong, followed by 2 pkgs Carnation Instant Hot Chocolate, with mini marshmellows, and hot water in a tall to-go insulated mug. Amazon sells both, but you can get the chocolate mix on sale for about $1.50 in a grocer.

They arrived very quickly and were very fresh tasting. Plus, no broken candies, so they were handled very well, by amazon. The only problem is they were eaten too fast. I would definitely order them again, from amazon.
249046249046B007P2PUF6A1HIV16UFG6JTZBigg Tee "mr_maximus"0051345334400Apricot Pit CookiesApricot Pit Cookies? Say what? That's right, motherflippers. It's an apricot cookie and it's mighty tasty. I bought this using the "add on" feature and it was the bomb! I just absolutely love these very tasty Italian cookies - they really are made out of apricot pits and they are way too tasty.
249047249047B005LEHC4MA1D02VBWMSOGPZMicheleC0051348185600yummy, not too sweetI drink multiple different flavors of Nuun all day long. This is a nice refreshing, not too sweet flavor. When I race and will only have water, I use this for a flavor change.
249048249048B002C52WIOA1KKE6VX8VPWZKJ. J. Marino "Geekasaurus Rex"101151272067200Fantastic gourmet chip - this flavor is one of the best.I purchased these chips for my mobile vending cart. Because I have Amazon Prime the cost per bag is really good as far as a reseller goes. Each flavor is really good in its own right. These chips the Asian Sweet and Spicy are just so tasty. Its just the right amount of sweet and the slightest bit of spice that makes these a fantastic tasting chip.

Lets talk about details:

Chip thickness (+)
These are gourmet chips and the quality is there from the moment you open the bag. Each one is crunchy and not too thick but just enough to let you know you didn't buy a bag of Lays.

Grease (+)
These are NOT greasy chips. Depending on the flavor they are just mildy seasoned and not coated in a heavy grease or oil.

Flavor (+)
Each flavor stands completely on its own. You could do a blind taste test of each one of these flavors sold by Deep River and I bet you could tell what it was. None of the flavors are overpowering except maybe the Jalapeno flavor which is honestly too hot and I love hot food.

Resale (+)
You may not resell these but at the current price and using Prime shipping the cost per bag allows you to make a decent profit.

Overall:
These are great tasting, unique flavored chips that are hands down better than the ones you can get in bulk at a Sams or BJ's. Do yourself a favor and try a bag or two. I bet you'll love em like we do.

Thanks for reading my review.
249049249049B002C52WIOA2ULCJD3E9FP2MYvette A. Walters "EV"2251321056000DEEP RIVER POTATO CHIPSTHEY ARE DELICIOUS NOT SALTY YOU CAN SIT AND EAT 2-3 2 OUNCE BAGS AT A TIME I GIVE THESE 5 STARS PLUS I HAVE TO STOP MYSELF FROM EATING THEM THEY ARE DELICIOUS.
249050249050B002C52WIOA2GTIFY34FM10DL. Lowman "Linda DL"2241302998400Good ChipsI like these chips, even though they are a little different than chips I am used to. I love that they are reduced fat, but be warned, they are extremely crunchy. So crunchy that I have to turn the volume up on the TV to hear it when I'm chewing them. The taste is quite good though and I like crunchy salty food. I will probably order them again.
249051249051B002C52WIOA2TQV5S2MIUJ0RDrivera2251302134400Mesquite BBQThese chips are the best!! I've tried some of the other flavors and they are ok, nothing special... but the Mesquite BBQ is hands down the best BBQ chips I've ever had! if you like BBQ chips (and are not concerned with the calories most chips bring), then you will not be disappointed in these!
249052249052B002C52WIOAGS1GGTC4ZK4VOrton Redux4551260489600Superior chips - wow!Addictive and totally unexpected. I first tasted these at the Fancy Food Show in New York a couple of years ago. Was amazed to find them on Amazon - and bought immediately for our lunch clients. What you want in a potato chip: the crunch is fantastic and the flavor gives off both rosemary and olive oil, ending in a surprisingly smoky note.
249053249053B002C52WIOA2R1HUYHXV7H18Kristi G., mom of Sage1151337126400Love these!I took a chance on these and they are awesome. They are crisp and not at all greasy. I like the Lay's Kettle Chips, but these are really much better, less greasy, maybe a bit more crisp too. The rosemary is good - it's not overpowering and it tastes like rosemary. No MSG. Hits the salty snack craving just right. I like the size too - it's enough to satisfy a craving but keeps me from eating a whole big bag. Which I'd probably do with these, if that's what I had. I'll definitely order them again. My husband and 16 year old both really like them too.
249054249054B002C52WIOA3LFBF9975Q7PRkc0051345766400Don't have to eat just one.......These are delicious lower sodium/fat chips. Convenient lunch/snack size bag is enough for sharing. Halloween is two months away and the kids will be getting these for trick or treating at our house. By the case means they're always on hand.
249055249055B002C52WIOAZUUU81LB0NYVCheryl D. Apple "Apple's Table"0051345075200Spicy, Hot Chips!The chips are deliciously spicy and super crispy. It takes a second for the heat to hit but
when it does, it's AWESOME! Love these chips and will continue to buy for a long time.
249056249056B002C52WIOA3VBXQKRM7A4JReyecore0031342483200Keep it simpleJust to keep it simple...more of a comparison than a total review. I love jalapeno chips - look mostly for the level of spice, then pepper flavor, good crunch, and not loaded down with salt.

With that said, these Deep River Snacks chips (jalapeno flavor) are:
1. Better than the Lays Jalapeno. (Deep RIver have the same spice level, which is lacking. Neither have a lot of pepper flavor.)
2. About the same as the jalapeno chips that the "World Market" branded chips. (World Market has a little more spice, but also a lot more salt.)
3. Not nearly as good as Tim's Cascade Jalapeno chips. (Tims has more pepper flavor, more spice, a little bit better crunch...but also have MSG.)

It's not to say these chips are bad, but just what the 3-stars says "It's OK." There are better, there are worse...to me, these are right in the middle of the pack.
249057249057B002C52WIOAVSR5EDZGC83IRenee0051339804800yummyDeep river snacks are the best chips ever!!! I'm addicted to the zesty jalapeno and haven't tried other flavors. I recommend this brand to everyone.
249058249058B002C52WIOA18IIZOGAQPJIOron p0051333670400flavor and crunch!These are everything I want in a potato chip
249059249059B002C52WIOA173PXWIJT9T0ZM. Torrecilla "mymariboo"0051317081600Great FlavorWhole family loved 'em. Hard enough to break your teeth (in a good way, they are kettle chips after all). 24 for $17? We'll definitely buy again.
249060249060B002C52WIOA2W7L2F36SOBFDOnQ 4U0041315785600Great Tasting, just wish they were thicker cut.These are very good chips. The Asian Sweet & Spicy--not too sweet, not too spicy, or salty--perfectly balanced seasoning. We received very fresh packages. I just like thicker cut potato chips especially being kettle cooked, but that will not deter me from ordering again.
