The first brand and item from the goodie box I would like to talk about is the Gertrude Hawk – Peanut Butter Meltaway Bar.

The second item I would like to talk about is the
The Run Gum will be perfect for those that enjoy that extra boost for exercise or just running around doing your errands or whatever you fancy during the day.
If you are addicted to gum as many of us can be, this would be a perfect way to boost your day. The run gum is supposed to help you give you energy and give you the best performance in your sports and life.
I had tried two different flavors of Run Gums. They have a variety of 3 flavors. The three flavors they carry are mint, cinnamon, and fruity. The first flavor I had tried was the Cinnamon and the second one I had tried was the mint.
Run Gum Experience:
Texture: At first when I chewed it, it crumbled into bits of pieces in my mouth, but the more I chew on it, it became gummy like. Then it turned into gum.
Cinnamon Gum Taste: It is a very light cinnamon taste. Is not overpowering or intense like Big Red gum for example.
Mint Gum Taste: The mint flavor is not intense either like Doublemint gum for example, but it has subtle mint soothing flavor.
Energy: It does give you a gradual boost of energy as you go throughout the day. It lasted about 5 to 6 hours for me.
Ingredients: The Run Gum is filled with Caffeine, taurine, and b-vitamins. It is like the energy drinks and energy shots, but you do not need to drink it. You easily chew it. It also enters your system quicker than drinks, shots, or gels.
Amount of Caffeine per piece: 50 mg
Amount of Taurine per piece: 20 mg
Tip: If you are running or doing any kind of sports or any physical activity, chew one gum before you start, and chew one after you start. It gives you a more steady energy boost and more chewing fun.
Worth it: It is worth it if you are looking for that special chewing gum that will help with your energy boost for all of your physical activities. It is also perfect for those who can not stomach energy drinks, coffee, or tea.
The third exciting item would be the Pipcorn.
The Pipcorn was so much fun to eat and just feel on your hands and in your mouth. It is full of flavor.

The fifth goodie from The Daily Goodie Box was the Wild Foods Cocotropic.
This was one of the best energetic powders I have experienced and tasted. It has a cocoa taste in your drink while giving you a lot of energy with the ingredients that it has inside. It made me wide awake. I would take this in the morning or and in the midday when I would need the most energy boost.
Blendable: I would drink it with either my tea or coffee drinks. Is better to use a hot beverage in order for this to blend well. I tried putting it into a cold beverage and the powder did not blend into well.
Stamina Ingredient: Cocotropic has the ingredient Maca, which gives you heighten sexual stamina. My husband and I did notice that it does work for this occasion.
Concentration: It does give you the optimum concentration. I noticed that it works better than just using coffee or caffeine as concentration boost. It also does not give you fatigue or withdrawal.

The sixth goodie is the Elemental Herbs – All Good Organic Skin Food:
This good I received had lemongrass in it. When I first tried it on my face close to my eyes, it did sting and I had to wash that area close to my eyes. The one without the lemongrass, which I did not receive would have not done that.
Then I rubbed it all over my arms. It made my arms soft and moist. Lemongrass is also good against mosquitos. I thought this would be perfect for that. If you are looking for something that will moisturize your skin and has no artificial ingredients and pure, the All Good Coconut Oil Skin Food would be fantastic. Coconut oil could serve as a natural sunscreen, but I do advice to use the real sunscreen with the other ingredients to protect your skin from the harsh sun rays.
Ingredients in the lemongrass infused: Organic unrefined virgin (coconut) oil and Organic Cymbopogon flexuous (lemongrass) essential oil.
