293131293131B001E6EJQUA3S15YGZ6W6EV2K. Varraso0111204761600What are these cereal bits in my candy?When I opened my first box of Strawberry Delight Frosted Mini Wheats this morning, I thought I had bought something other than cereal by mistake. I was expecting something like the usual Frosted mini wheats, with the exception of some pink frosting and perhaps some strawberry flavor.

How wrong I was.

Instead, I got a little square of frosting, colored by a pink not found on this Earth and "scented" the with the strongest chemical candy perfume that I have ever had the misfortune to come across. It hovered over the box like a pink cloud before taking out a mallet and knocking me into a diabetic coma. There were a few twigs of what was supposed to be cereal, but it was abundantly clear that the frosting is the reason for this stuff, and the twigs are merely a crumb being thrown to caring parents, so they will serve this stuff instead of a nutritious meal. Indeed the only nutritional claim on the box is wrong: the box says that one serving contains 25% of a day's allowance of fiber, when the nutritional information clearly says a serving of this stuff has only 20% of a day's allowance of fiber. Which one is it?

I don't think that the fiber question will matter to the other reviewers, with most of them eating the confection out of hand as a snack. Sadly that means they are getting a whole heck of a lot more than the suggested serving of 24 tiny squares of frosting. Happily, that means they'll likely get a whole day's supply of fiber, but they'll also end up with a week's supply of sugar.

Once in a while, I have order food from Amazon that does not suit my taste. This cereal is one of those items. Usually, I donate the unopened packages to the local food pantry and count it as some good coming from my lesson. I can't even do that with these this so-called cereal. In poor homes, the children already consume too many processed foods and simple carbohydrates (sugar, in this case). I am not going to add to the bad eating habits of the next generation.

293133293133B001E6EJQUA2HZTS8Q97D8DMA. Waters0151168300800Yummy!I am on a diet so these make the perfect mid day snack. 24 mini wheats per serving and I love that they are made with whole grain wheat which makes them filling. I haven't tried them with milk yet, but the strawberry frosting helps with my need for sweet. I am definitely going to buy more!
293134293134B000BSYZX4A13Z0SYIXPUNAHouesi3341233446400Good VaueThis is a good working blanket. It is well made, good materials, and nice and warm but breathable. I bought mine for my young dog who has no undercoat for when we walk in the pre dawn cold, and for my older dog who just can't regulate his body temperature as well anymore. My older dog seems comfortable lying down in it, but I've noticed it does restrict shoulder movement in my younger dog. Make sure you measure your dog and go with the sizes recommended by the manufacturer. I bought the XL for my guys, though I wouldn't consider either of them "extra large" dogs (65 and 70 pounds). For five stars I would want to see better tailoring around the back so that it "hugs" the dog better, and cross straps instead of the single strap around the body. And some people won't like not being able to pick the color, though that wasn't an issue for us.

When I first reviewed this, I gave it four stars (I'm a hesitant five-star giver), but having now used it for two weeks, it gets the fully approved 5-star love.
293136293136B008VQ01Y0A1B4MIXYVIKMU2D. Truong "Duke of New Mexico"55956251314921600Works great! But how does it compare to Solofill?.... Read onThis Ecobrew reusable Keurig K-cup is great for brewing your own coffee. It seems to have been very well designed and is easy to use. One of the things I felt bad about when I bought my Keurig coffee maker was the fact that although it was a great convenient coffee maker... it does tend to produce lots of waste when you buy the disposable k-cups. I think this product also ends up saving you lots of money in the long run too. K-cups can be quite expensive. I really love this product and I really can't find anything bad to say about it. There is another product called the Solofill that essentially does the same thing but is made from another company. I own both products and if you're curious to how they stack up against one another, check out the paragraph below. You may want to do research to make sure that your Keurig coffee maker is compatible with the EcoBrew or Solofill. I know that some K-cup coffee makers are not compatible with these products. I own the MR. Coffee single K-cup coffee maker and can say that it's compatible with both of these products. If you want to know more about the Mr. Coffee Keurig coffee maker, feel free to read my review on that as well :)

EcoBrew VS Solofill

First off, I'd like to state that I purchased both the Solofill and the Ecobrew. Both of these products are really great reusable Keurig filters that let you brew your own coffee in a Keurig coffee maker. These essentially let you make your own K-cups with your own coffee... and they're reusable! I would rate the Solofill as 4.5 Stars out of 5 and the Ecobrew as a 5 out of 5 Star Product. The Ecobrew is a bit better than the Solofill because it is easier to rinse out. The Solofill tends to collect grinds at the very bottom and it's very hard to get the few last grinds out. The Ecobrew also fits better in my Mr Coffee single cup K-cup brewer. The Ecobrew seems to have a slightly larger capacity for coffee grinds too, which may mean it's capable of brewing slightly stronger coffee. And lastly, the Ecobrew has a flat bottom that can sit on a counter top by itself. This makes it much easier to fill than the Solofill. With the Solofill, it couldn't be balanced on a table-top so I had to cut out the bottom of a small dixie cup to make my own "stand" in order to fill it properly.
293137293137B008VQ01Y0A10PV6AP8SXEDIJ. Goldman47247751312848000This filter works PERFECT!Seriously, I love my Keurig. I love the convenience and the coffees. But what I don't love is buying $50 dollars worth of coffee every month. I tried the filter that Keurig gave me with my Platinum B70 model and it made my awesome Guatemalan Coffee I used to brew the "old fashion way" into a watered down mess no matter how fine I ground the bean or how much I reduced the cup size.

I was skeptical about buying another kcup filter when I saw this offered on Amazon, but the video add on the ekobrew website had me sold. I bought the ekobrew Cup before it was available for sale with high hopes, and it has totally lived up to my expectations! My freshly ground coffee tastes better than any Kcup I have ever had! I forgot how good some of the beans I bought were. No Joke. If you are like me and have a few roasts of beans you just love and don't feel like breaking the bank trying every kcup under the sun to find blends that please you then get it. You won't be sorry.

The only negative part is you have to rinse it out but that is no big deal. Just pop the top and tap it on the sink and the grinds come out then rinse. No scrubbing or anything. I may buy another to have one handy to fill while the other is brewing since I make about 3 Kcups worth of coffee in the morning to fill for two travel mugs for the wife and I. THANK YOU ekobrew!
293138293138B008VQ01Y0A26LHX89KA88DGGregg23223541322524800Ekobrew Washer HackWhen first ordering a couple of ekobrew cups, I had high hopes that they would make my recent hand-me-down Keurig B44 a viable alternative to my Cuisinart drip machine. But, my hopes were quickly dashed upon first use. The second cup wasn't much better. Third time's a charm, right? Wrong. Things were just not good.

I experienced many of the same problems that are mentioned in other reviews: leaky, messy brew, and weak coffee. I was pretty disappointed in the prospects of my new Keurig adventure, but was also determined to make this work and, after some experimentation, I did. The solution is a tiny washer.

If you look inside the upper clamshell of your Keurig machine, you'll see the injector needle that punctures the top of standard k-cups. Around this needle is a gasket that presses against the top of k-cups to form a seal. This gasket is the problem. It does not put enough pressure on the cap of the ekobrew to form an adequate seal, causing water and coffee to spew out from the cap. To fix this, slide the gasket down and off of the injector needle (use caution as the needle is sharp), slide a washer up onto the needle, then slide the gasket back on. Your leaky, messy brew should now be a thing of the past.

The washer hack also made my coffee noticeably stronger, but additional solutions may be required to satisfy your desired strength. Prior to putting in the washer, I began tamping the coffee in the ekobrew cup. That helped, and I still continue to tamp even after the installation of the washer.

The washer I used is rubber, 1/16" thick, 5/32" inside diameter, and 3/8" outside diameter. Specifically, I used a washer from Lowes with item number 136493.
293139293139B008VQ01Y0A104NBZOSZODEQB. Spoon888851313712000Good Product and Excellent Customer ServiceAt first, we did not get along. It spit and spewed in our B60 and made me mad that I had paid full price for two of these new K-cup replacements. Good coarse grind, check. No grounds around lid before closing, check. Not too full, check. Seated properly in Keurig, check.
My best guess was that the lid was not sealing properly because there was a little wiggle room when closed, so I contacted the company by email and asked if a replacement seal would help. I was delighted when they offered to send replacement Ekobrews. The next morning, we tried something different. We removed, cleaned and replaced the rubber piece that surrounds the needle that inserts into K-cups in the top of the machine. That helped, a lot. The next cup we decided to try turning the Ekobrew around so that the hinge was at the front of the machine. Perfection! I cannot explain why, but it worked. I did let them know right away that replacements were not necessary, but they were already in the mail!
We now have an alternative to K-cups that makes a great tasting cup of coffee, can handle enough to brew a nice strong travel mug full and is easy to fill and clean. We will continue buy K-cups when the price is right, but when it isn't we can still have great, single cup coffee without breaking the bank.
Just as a note, we tried the Solofill, which is a good product, but it just did not hold quite enough coffee for a happy mug.
293140293140B008VQ01Y0A3BBC8E7QT7N9IP. Harding13513951312848000great designJust got the Ekobrew today and tried it out. I have been a Solofill fan since they came out but the Ekobrew design seems to beat the Solofill. First off, the flat bottom makes it easy to fill. I usually run two cycles for a larger cup of coffee. With the Ekobrew the lid stays shut and doesn't leak water at the top. I was surprised how easily the grounds came out and just a quick rinse and it was ready to go again. Seems to be the best choice around for avoiding the high cost of K cups.
293141293141B008VQ01Y0A1YYWOLUF6I4G1D. Kiser "Dave Kiser"565651313193600Perfect!This one is well thought out - perfect in every way! I threw my old "My K-cup" out in the trash. Did you know that some of the new Keurig brewers, such as the B-40, were redesigned a little? Yes, and the new brewers don't allow the My K-Cups from Keurig to fit properly. I called Keurig on this - and their customer service team says "some of the brewers were redesigned with slight changes that don't allow the My K-Cups to fit. You have to move a small gasket down each time you switch between your K-Cups and your My K-Cup. We don't have a new My K-Cup that works - so you need to just use this "work around" for the time being." Now with my Eco-Brew - problems solved! That's because it's the exact same size as the K-Cups! No more changing the adapter in and out. It works better too! Coffee is stronger! No more "hole down the middle" with weak coffee and wasted grounds that were never used. Whoever designed this was a genius..... and too bad for Keurig they didn't think of it!
293142293142B008VQ01Y0A15DJHT9VECM95K. Murdock "shoppingAddict"848751313020800AH-MAZING!!WOW - we got our keurig as a gift and with the gift was a big box of the k-cups with all the eh, average tasting coffees...but once those ran out we would never be the people to spend that much money on coffee every month. so we have been using the solofil for about 8 months. we hated it and because of it, hated the keurig. the coffee we buy (the strongest roast from starbucks) was always watery and the solofil would leak all the time and it was such a pain to clean. but we put up with it. ENTER the ekobrew! omg this thing is amazing. i don't know what makes it so much different and i don't care -i just care that we get an amazing cup of coffee from our machine now! SUCH a difference. we used to use the solofil twice for one cup of coffee - we would make two of the smallest cups to make it as strong as possible. not anymore!! highly recommend! buying 2 more!
293143293143B008VQ01Y0A27HYAB5IYG0JScharlotte crawford697151312761600Techno-BESTMy disclaimer- I'm a coffee geek. There's a few precursors to this Keurig brew basket, including what Keurig sells at Costco with the machine. The advantages to all of them is getting the coffee you want, getting it at less than 1/2 the price and saving the planet with less waste. Most people just want the convenience of buying and throwing away the K-Cup, so all of these options are for a limited audience. Where the EkoBrew shines is cup quality- more coffee in the cup. This comes from really nice saturation of the coffee because of the cone shaped water dispersion. It's easy to hold and get out of the machine. The puck comes out clean without digging out crevices as an earlier. This is the first one I've seen with a rubber O-ring that seals the cup shut. Ingenious. Kudos to these guys.
293144293144B008VQ01Y0A1ROUMJOGO4QMBSteve444551312934400Excellent brew, economical too!With the price of coffee continually rising, I've been on a search for a replacement to the expensive K cups for some time. Their recent price increase is outrageous IMHO (I mean, how much coffee is really in there to justify the recent 15% or so increase?). I've tried the My K-cup from Keurig. It did ok, coffee was a little weak, and it was a bit of a hassle to swap out the holder and then cleaning out the grounds as well.

I moved onto the EZ-cup pod holster, using tea filter bags. This eliminated much of the mess, but the coffee quantity is a little low resulting in a weaker cup (but similar to the My K-cup). Plus, I had to buy the bags and we're trying to save money here.

Next came the solofill, but again, the coffee quantity is a little lower than I like. Cleaning out the solofill isn't hard, but it takes longer than it should, due to the nooks/crannies in there. Still better than the My K-cup as you don't have to pop out the holder.

Ok, on to the the ekobrew. They obviously put a lot of thought into the design of this thing. The cutouts are exactly where they need to be and the water flows out more evenly thru the grounds. Because of this design, there is a little more room in there for the grounds resulting in a better brew. I've only used this a few times, but cleanup is easier than the My K-cup and solofill. I would guess it's because the design is flatter on the bottom and the sides seem straighter. Not quite as convenient as the EZ-cup, but it's a better cup and cheaper.

I'll be looking into getting another one of these!

Both (Sheltie mix and long-haired chihuahua) were nonchalant about it, preferring to drop it in the hopes of getting something better. For my picky boys, it wasn't a good purchase so I won't be getting them again.
293147293147B000MXVI88A4VIZW1GT6AFKBette1151308614400GREAT CEREAL!!!!I grew up on Cerelac too! My 5-month year old daughter Loves it. I made a mistake of starting her on Cerelac because she does not like the Gerber cereal when I feed it to her:-). She will spit it out. I also bought the "Junior" one for my 3-year old son and he LOVES it!
Definitely, I will be ordering more different flavors for my daughter soon. Thank you AMAZON for carrying it!
293148293148B000MXVI88AIABHRRVN1XL5nana0051346716800Just love cerelac!!We grew up on cerelac as kids. My 2 and 1/2 yr old daughter has been on cerelac since she was 6 months and she loves it!! She has been very healthy since we started her on it! This is the best cereal ever!!!
293149293149B000MXVI88A3MSHB7O6C3LOGDiana H.0051324166400Yummy!My little girl loooved these. Every single flavour!! I tried it too, of course, to make sure my baby girl gets good stuff. :)) Yummy!!
293150293150B002HNQV2YA1296U9L5XBJDAA. E. Miklos "some guy"101051306972800Delicious - and there's plenty of it!This stuff is extremely tasty and can sometimes be hard to find in anything larger than a rather-expensive 2oz bottle. I finally took the plunge and bought myself the gallon. I can now dispense it liberally on whatever grub I so choose, and the fact that this stuff is now practically "on tap" in my kitchen means that I'm now trying it out in some recipes - I tossed some chicken wings in this, let them soak in it for a while, then stirred in some melted butter, plucked the wings out and put them under the broiler - delicious.

One thing - Tabasco - if you're listening - start selling a pump that screws onto the bottle. We'll use it faster and buy more sauce.
293151293151B002HNQV2YA18WIUPWJTW0WVLynx3351301443200Super Sized for convenienceThis bottle Is Definately a Supersized Convenience for anyone that uses a Lot of Tabasco. I've had mine for a couple of months now and have only used about a quarter of it, and I use a lot of Tabasco (about a standard 5oz bottle every three to four weeks). I've been refilling my standard size bottle as needed (twice so far). I also add direct from the Gallon to my ketchup via a 60 cc MONOJECT syringe which I also use to refill my standard 5oz bottle (Pull the plunger and replace the cap to fill it then replace the plunger). It's not a very convenient size unless you use a lot of Tabasco, but if you do, it the best way to buy it.
293152293152B002HNQV2YA9L1Q3Y73XVYYjterzo10051347321600Extreme Money SaverThis was a no brainer for my family and I. We were using upwards of a small bottle a week of this Tabasco sauce. At $6 a piece it was adding up fast. This is great to use to refill the smaller bottles. I agree that a pump or some type of pouring system would be handy. Once this gallon runs out I will be quick to reorder.
293153293153B002HNQV2YA22K7ATZY9TNNZPoet Joe00513411008002 Gallons of Tabasco, Regular and Green.For the money I spent on these 2 gallons of Tabasco I figured I saved around $220 Bucks had I purchased the 2 ounce, 5 ounce or 12 ounce bottles from the store, if You use Tabasco like me and my Family, it is worth it to go big.
293154293154B002HNQV2YAC25PJOGROMOXSysCompany0051333756800Just as describedBoth a novelty and practical purchase. My girlfriend goes through this stuff like water so we bought this (cheaper per ounce, etc). It's actually so cool looking we haven't cracked it open yet though.
293155293155B002HNQV2YA2XKJ1KX6XUHYPNYFB0051326326400The Best...I am a fan of spices... No one has what Tabasco has. The healthiest out there. Only 30 mg of salt per spoon. Others not only cannot compete with Tabasco's taste but they have 200 plus mg of salt in each spoon. That is ridiculous amount of salt. Do not need to refrigerate the Tabasco bottle for one year at all so you can leave it outside at room temperature. I have been using Tabasco for 40 years all over the world. I add TABASCO brand Pepper Sauce - Original Red Gallon to all my dishes since it is the spiciest of all. It is not thick like the Chipotle but it is very unique test when I am making dishes that have many different ingredients since it mixes well. I add TABASCO brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce - Gallon to the tortilla pizza that I make with cheese and herring since this is heavier and tastier but not as spicy as the original red or green. I add the green TABASCO brand Green Jalapeno Pepper Sauce - Gallon with anything that I make with eggs including the egg sandwich in between tortillas since this is the best with eggs. I love beans and lintels so after cooking those I add serrano chilli pepper deeped in Italian vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, eggplant and the Habanero TABASCO brand Habanero Sauce - Gallon and I can tell you that becomes real hot. I place the mix in between hot tortilla with avocados for consumption. Now that does not mean that I am limited with these food selections since many times I may mix all those Tabascos together. Regardless, I have never been disappointed since it is truly delicious, spicy, hot without all the garbage and additives that it is out there in other brands without the taste. I have a very healthy diet and I consume healthy food without additives. Thanks and Double bravo to Tabasco.
293156293156B001SAZNSKA1T61QP7QHYBRQan honest reviewer2251292371200EconomicalI always like to do any grating at home while preparing recipes.
Grated cheeses are to me, more salty. With pre-ground nutmeg, I don't feel I get the full aroma and flavor.
Whole nutmeg can be quite expensive and I'm so happy to have come across this brand of spices.I do like McCormick, but it's more expensive than this brand and this brand has just the same good quality and flavor, so why not save wherever you can.
This is a fine quality spice at a very economical price.
293157293157B001SAZNSKA3DCL9741JHOTVCloset Wench0051341964800Great dealI have been unable to find whole nutmeg in any grocery in my 'hood at the end of the earth. I thought the price was more than reasonable for a package, but I incorrectly assumed (because I did not read well) that I would be getting about 12 whole nutmegs, instead of 12 packages of 4-6 nutmegs each. Thankfully this product will last forever if kept in a cool dry place. I will be sharing with my friends, since I don't believe I could even finish 2 packages by the end of my life. The taste supersedes any of the ground product I have purchased.
293158293158B001SAZNSKA31Q2HTQATRQE9atlantic "jova"0041320710400Handy Fresh ConvenientI cook a lot, and don't use nutmeg often. It's nice flavor, small form make it great, for my occasional usage and storage.
293159293159B002Z3K546A1DUFCF54666O7J. Wieland0051269475200Only available at select times of the year...I was first given Pocket Coffee's by my brother when he studied in Italy for a semester. They're the perfect treat when you want coffee, but don't have time to sip. Only wish they were more readily available...
293160293160B0001BGTV2A3PIHY8BD4AF7DNoseDaddy8951278374400Better than freshI am on disability and do not get out frequently (once every 3-6 weeks) so I have been experimenting with longer shelf life foods that I can buy for a reasonable price that are delivered to my home. For years, I have been making quick microwave soups from scratch and I have found that while meats can be easily frozen, vegetables can not be bought in bulk for long term without a lot of waste. There are all sorts of veggies available at Amazon, a bunch at this vendor, that are remarkably flavorful AND economical. This clelery tastes to me just like fresh when used in my soups and for $2 you can't go wrong. Barry Farm Foods also sells dried jalapenos (excellent--kept for cooking only cause I ALWAYS have 5-6 cans on hand for table use), onions, shallots, sour cream powder, cheese powder, etc. which I have all tried and endorse. There are also dried mushrooms but I have not hit on the type that suits me as yet. The trick to these dried vegetables is to soak them before hand in boiling water, if planning to cook the entree quickly, to ensure that they get fully rehydrated. Longer cooking times don't require soaking. Beef stew made with dried vegetables, frozen peas, frozen strips of beef and some sour cream powder makes a wonderful dinner in less than 1/2 hour, with prep since anything dried will already have been chopped, diced, sliced or maybe smashed to ensure effective drying.
