Holas My Jujubes!
Wait, back up…did i just call you all jujubes? Yes I did, but more on that later…
I’ve been waiting to make a certain purchase lately but I never worked myself up to actually doing it, until now. Why now? Because the amazing people at CSN has yet again contacted me and have offered me another amazing opportunity- this time to review an item! (We’ve done two giveaways with CSN in the past) If your new to my blog or blogging world, then let me introduce CSN. CSN owns over 200 online stores selling things from bistro sets to my favorite kitchen supplies! I’m going to use their amazing opportunity to put it towards my larger purchase that I’ve been wanting to get. Can you guess what it is?
I’ll show you all my purchase when it arrives and give you an all out review.
If you were given this opportunity, what would you choose?!?
Now Back to the JuJuBes
Sounds like a candy no?
Actually it sounded so much like a candy, i googled it
Remember these bad puppies from our childhood…
Well I actually wasn’t referring to these. Instead I’m replacing these nonvegan, artificially flavored treats, with these Natural namestealers
Please excuse the horrendous picture, my camera died and instead of charging it I took out the camera phone- yes and the worst blogger dedication award goes to…
These are JuJuBes also known as chinese red dates! DATES!!! :) MMmmM no these unfortunately taste nothing like our favorite dates in larabars, fudge babies etc but they are tasty! Kinda like a lighter in sweet taste of an apple.
JuJuBes are used in many purposes:
1. They are used in Chinese and Korean medicine to release stress
2. They are also dried and eaten as a candy in many Chinese families
3. A funny one i love and found on Wiki- the sweet smell of jujube’s is believed to make teenagers fall in love (hmmm i think i just found out how to snare a Fella for this Bella)
Unfortunately the bunch that Mama Bella bought were not ripe yet. Blech tasted very blanddd- definitely not the sweet smell of a lover’s snare sigh i have no patience! I blame Mama Bella, she was urging me to eat them. She has been pumping me full of plenty of exotic fruits- remember the Jabuticaba?- because she knows I won’t be able to get them in Michigan.
Speaking of Michigan…these Bella is flying off in 2 days!! Can you stand the excitement? We can’t wait to show you our new apartment! Remember when we first started this blog and we were only just starting to look for apartments? Wow time flies!
Hmm this post is needing a little pizazz I know but is the promise of plenty new eats, recipes, outings, and bella craziness that will begin in a couple days enough for you to forgive me?
Love you Mis JuJuBes
