Tastefully Simple Spring Products Review

Once upon a time, in a house not too far away, I was a guest at a home party. My parents' neighbor invited me to sample everything from bread and dips to soups and dessert. A great time was had by all and I left wishing I could buy everything in the catalog. This is how I was introduced to the fabulous world of Tastefully Simplemore than 12 years ago.
Fast forward to about five weeks ago, while I was planning the "Fun Fan Giveaway", Angela OLeary-Koechle not only agreed to sponsor a prize for one of my readers, but also offered to send me a few products from the new Spring line to review. I was thrilled! Being a fan of Tastefully Simple products for so many years, I was also honored to be given the opportunity to share my opinion on some of their new stuff!
The new products I tried were: Tempting Taco Cheese Ball Mix, Hoppin' Jalapeno & Bacon Dip Mix, Crazy for Coconut Macaroon Bar Mix, and Golden Mango Mojito Drink Mix. She also sent me some Bountiful Beer Bread to pair with the dip and cheese ball.
One of the things I absolutely LOVE about Tastefully Simple products is how versatile they are. Every box, every package, every container has at least one if not multiple recipes on them. In addition to that, they have an entire Recipes section on the website where you will find even more ways to use their products. I love to cook and am always experimenting. For example, the Bountiful Beer Bread has an optional 3 tablespoons of butter you can add to the top before you put it in the oven. Instead of butter, I added olive oil to the last two loaves I baked. YUMMY!
The Hoppin' Jalapeno & Bacon Dip Mix can be made either into a dip or a cheese ball and are very easy to make. Both recipes are on the back of the box. The Tempting Taco Cheese Ball Mix had a "kick" I didn't expect, but still very good. My family was split in half when it came to these two products. Two really liked one and two really liked the other.
The Crazy for Coconut Macaroon Bar Mix was probably the family favorite. I absolutely LOVED it and if I didn't "have to" share it, I wouldn't have. I made it over a week ago and can still smell and taste the coconut when I think about it. Last, but certainly not least, the Golden Mango Mojito Drink Mix was definitely refreshing. Again, there are multiple recipes on the mini bucket. What I love about their drink mixes is you almost always have a non-alcoholic option and since I have three young children, that is the one I made. Delicious!
Side Note: Besides the Bountiful Beer Bread, another "staple" that is a must in my cupboard is the Bacon Bacon. I recently tried it in deviled eggs, on steak, and burgers. When I first told my middle son, the "picky eater", I was going to make the burgers he said "yucky". Halfway through grilling them and after I sprinkled the Bacon Bacon on them, he came up to me and asked me if he could have a burger. He ate the whole thing! I was one happy Mommy that day.
