"I was never a fan of vanilla ice cream until I got to taste Magnolia President's Tub's Butter Pecan ice cream. It's so creamy, that even when we put it over a warm slice of brownies it melted slowly into liquid cream, not water."

"Nothing spoils a fun day at the beach quite like a sunburn. If you find yourself getting more than a healthy dose of the sun, apply Celeteque's Sun Relief After-sun Gel generously on the affected area to hasten the healing process. It's hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested so no worries about further skin irritation."

"When my son was younger, he had the habit of opening the refrigerator door every so often -- to get snacks, a cold drink, or a chocolate bar. This caused our electricity bills to soar! So I was glad to discover that LG refrigerators now have the Door-in-Door (DID) technology, which provides quick and easy access to food and drinks while also minimizing energy consumption by as much as 16%. How I wish they had this back then!"

"Kids should be made to understand the importance of oral health. When I first taught my son to rinse with mouthwash after brushing, he found the brand we used too strong. I came across Swish Icy Choco Mint mouthwash at the supermarket and he's been happily using it ever since, minus the sting."

"There are very few room sprays that I actually like -- some scents are too fruity for my liking, while others are just too strong. So it was love at first sniff when I discovered Heima Store's Olive Room Spray. Its subtle fragrance sets the tone for a relaxing sleep."

"The makers of Magnum ice cream outdid themselves with the newest variant, Magnum Chocolate Strawberry. It's vanilla ice cream with a swirl of strawberry cream and coated with belgian chocolate. How could you go wrong with that?"
