Review: J. Drizzle Gourmet Popcorn

J. Drizzle Gourmet Popcorn recently sent me 4 bags of handcrafted popcorn to review. J. Drizzle’s popcorn is made fresh to order and hand-tossed in small batches with no preservatives. They make a wide variety of savory, sweet and signature flavors like banana cream pie, dill pickle, garlic parmesan, nacho cheese, milk and cookies, and many more unique flavors. “The Flavor Vault” holds special flavors like zesty ranch, funky monky and ragin’ cajun. Crazy delicious. Don’t you want to try them all?

I’m reviewing peanut butter cup, cinnamon toast crunch, bacon & cheddar and pizza time….

Tassimo T20 Giveaway


The TASSIMO T20 is mighty little brewer that makes over 40 varieties of hot and cold beverages including cappuccinos, chai lattes, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and more. TASSIMO partners with 12 distinct brands including Starbucks, Gevalia, Twinings, Mastro Lorenzo, Carte Noire and Gutard.

Tassimo Gevalia Coffee

I jumped at the chance to review the TASSIMO T20 when it was offered! I found it incredibly easy to set up and in less than five minutes I was cupping a steaming hot Starbuck’s cappuccino in my hands! The cappucino itself took about a minute to brew using two T DISCS (one milk, one espresso) with unique bar codes on them that the brewer reads to deliver a perfect drink every single time. Each T DISC contains ground coffee, tea, chocolate or concentrated milk product, and is sealed to protect the flavours inside. TASSIMO is the only hot beverage system to feature perfectly brewed Starbucks coffee that you can make in the comfort of your own home!

Starbuck's Cappucino

The innovative TASSIMO T20 home brewing system comes in a chic black space saving design that is ready to brew drinks using a one-button operation system. There is no taste transfer between drinks because all the brewing happens inside the T DISC’s ‘mini brewing-chamber’ using a unique inverse flow and the drink pours directly from the T DISC into your cup. It features a built-in, automatic cleaning and descaling system that makes clean-up a breeze.

This giveaway is now closed!! The winner is Raina of Garden of Yum. Congratulations to Raina and thank you all for entering!

I have one Tassimo T20 to giveaway that includes a package of Starbuck’s Cappucino and Gevalia coffee! {Merry Christmas!}

For a chance to win visit the Tassimo web site and let me know what drink you would try first.

For an extra chance to win tweet it and let me know in a separate comment – please include your twitter username.

The giveaway ends on Sunday night, the 26th of December.

Tassimo Cappucino
