Notice of Changes

You will notice that some of my albums are "empty" on my Facebook page and that some pages and pictures are missing on here and on Fibro, Fit and Fab!. Don't worry - they won't stay that way. :) In light of some recent events, I've had to watermark my photos and designed images. Until that is done and I get a chance to upload them, my FREE Fibro Banners and Badges and Inspirational Designs {By Me} pages will be down on Fibro, Fit and Fab!, and the albums under the same (or almost the same) names on my Facebook page will be empty, and pictures will be deleted and watermarked at various times for as long as it takes to get that done. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for understanding! In the mean time, if there is an image you would like that you saw or have an idea for a new one, feel free to email me or leave me a comment, and I'll do what I can to get one to you. :)

{Product Review} Melt Organic Buttery Spreads (Organic, Non-GMO, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, Kosher)

US HM Label #2 -Airlite.jpgUS Melt Label #2 - Airlite.jpg

You all, have I found an amazing product for you called Melt!  It is a butter substitute (well, 2 of them) made with a blend of  virgin coconut oil and other non-GMO, organic oils that taste delicious!  You would never know it is not the real deal instead of a buttery spread.  Call it a healthy butter, an organic healthy butter, that is also soy-free, gluten-free, kosher and has an all-purpose version (which is lactose and casein free) and a sweet version (which is dairy-free) to choose from!  Trust me, all, you need to check them out!  You will not be sorry!

Here's some more info:
First up, their original Melt...

Here is what the product looks like:
It is light in color, but has a smooth, creamy, rich texture, just as advertised.


It spread beautifully straight from the fridge, too!  Not too hard, not too soft, just how butter should be in my opinion.

Now, for me, the ultimate melt test for a butter or buttery spread is toast.  If it melts nicely on toast, I'm half-sold, even before I taste it.  How did this product stand up to the toast test?


Melted like a dream!

And the taste?  Just like butter, I promise you!  It was so good I even said, "Wow!"  Seriously!  Even my kiddos enjoyed it!  You know you are doing well when a 3-year-old, 9-year-old and 11-year-old all like something.  And to know that is is GMO and organic and full of good-for-you fat, well, makes you love it all the more!  Totally and A+ in taste, melt factor and consistency.

~*~*~*~

Next up, Honey Melt...
 This is what it looks like:


This one is a little darker, probably due to the honey and cinnamon in it.  Let me just tell you, it smells divine!


It has the same smooth, creamy texture as the original Melt, too.   I got a little eager with my scooping with the knife, hence the reason it is not quite as pretty as the other picture. :)

And how did it do with the toast test?


Again, amazing melting going on there!

And taste?  If you like a sweet, cinnamon-sugar type butter, this is the one for you!  It would be great on pancakes, muffins, toast, etc.  It is definitely delicious!  Did I mention that Honey Melt is also dairy-free?  Yep!  Dairy-free, non-GMO, organic, kosher, gluten-free and soy-free.  Oh, yes, we have a dessert butter winner here, y'all!  Definitely another A+ all around.

~*~*~*~

I have no doubt that both products can be cooked and baked with as advertised.  I did not get a chance to do so, but if/when I do, you will hear about it on here. :)  Based on consistency, though, I have no doubt they will work wonderfully as a substitute for butter or margarine in any dish.

~*~*~*~
I know you all are wondering about cost, where to buy it, etc. so here's where you can go to get more info:

Melt Online Store

You will be happy to know that Melt costs around $4 per pound (sold online 2 pounds+ at a time) and is becoming more readily available.  I just found out that it will be coming to a local grocery store near me, and got very excited!  It is definitely something I will buy in future!

I also heard they have a new Chocolate version available. *drools*  That will make it to my shopping list, too, very soon I'm sure! :)

Oh, and if you do buy it online, you can expect to have your Melt in about a week.  It is sent pack in Styrofoam with ice packs and paper and should be refrigerated immediately upon opening.   The packaging is great; very secure and professional looking with every precaution made to keep the product cool until it reaches you.

A big thank you to Melt for letting me and my family taste and review your products!
*Any and all opinions are mine without censor and reflect my personal feelings on the product and not that of the person/company who sent them to me. Though I received these samples for free, that fact did not affect my opinion on said product in anyway.*
