New Blog, New Name, New Platform!

Very soon, TicTacDough will be no longer. Instead, I will be heading to a Wordpress blog called Mama Must Have It! I know exciting, right?! I do love change!

Grab My Button!

During this transition, there may be some technical glitches-- see, I am pretty tech savvy, but only to a certain point. For some reason newer comments are not being transferred over to the new blog. The posts are there, just not the comments.
So what this means is that the current giveaways on TicTacDough, will continue as is. Once the giveaways have ended, then TicTacDough will too.

Any new giveaways, will be over on the new blog at Mama Must Have It! We have some really great giveaways coming-- so you will not want to miss them! Head over there, check out the new digs and snoop around-- you are all welcome!! The Google Friends Connect Widget has already made the move over to Mama Must Have It. The RSS feed will soon be transfered as well. No need to delete the feed or un-friend me-- it's all the same! =)
Here is a sneak peak at some reviews & giveaways coming over 
on Mama Must Have It:

WOMEN ONLY Event: Zevia Soda Giveaway!

Ok-- so this review and giveaway is not technically for women only per say, but I know masses of women that drink diet cola that need another, healthier option! I like soda- Anything bubbly, sweet and that quenches my thirst, I love! But unfortunately, soda and soft drinks are not very good for you with all the added sugar, colorings and preservatives.

ZEVIA is the first all natural zero calorie soda. With only pure ingredients, ZEVIA contains none of the chemically processed artificial sugar substitutes, artificial flavors or artificial colors found in other diet sodas. ZEVIA is all-natural, has zero calories, zero net carbs, zero fat, and little or no sodium (depending on the flavor).

I was so lucky to try all six ZEVIA varieties - ZEVIA Natural Cola, ZEVIA Natural Orange, ZEVIA Natural Twist, ZEVIA Natural Root Beer, ZEVIA Natural Black Cherry, and ZEVIA Natural Ginger Ale.

The ZEVIA Natural Cola definitely tasted different than the run of the mill sodas in the grocery isle. You could actually taste the natural flavors that went in to each can. The first flavor that immediately hit me, was the natural caramel. I am a sweet junkie and anything caramel-y is great in my book! I didn't miss the overly sweetmess that comes with the high caloric sodas either-- ZEVIA uses Stevia -- a natural herb native to South and Central America. For centuries, native Americans of Paraguay and Brazil called it "sweet leaf" and used it to sweeten native foods.The extract from the stevia leaf has no calories, no effect on blood sugar levels, and is hundreds of times sweeter than sugar. Stevia sweetens all six ZEVIA™ Natural Diet Soda flavors.

My favorite soda from ZEVIA had to be the ZEVIA Natural Ginger Ale. It was like you took some nice sparkling water and mixed it with fresh ginger! I loved the natural taste of it. It wasn't a processed "ginger-like" taste-- if you smelled a slice of fresh ginger, that is what the ZEVIA Natural Ginger Ale tasted like! I loved it!

Would you like to try ZEVIA for yourself? Do your own taste test! Go to their great website and try them all!

One lucky winner will receive a 6 pack of mixed variety!
