Caulipower Pizza

Image
Caulipower, America's #1 better-for-you pizza, is now officially a top ten frozen pizza brand - eating into traditional frozen pizza sales nationwide. The brand recently announced the launch of the first-ever personal-size cauliflower crust pizza. Caulipower skipped straight from 11th to the 8th best-selling pizza brand in America in just eight weeks, propelled by its disruption in the frozen pizza industry. With over 500 brands in the frozen pizza market, Caulipower is the only better-for-you pizza brand in the top ten - joining the ranks of mainstream pizza brands at grocery. The brand's leap to top ten showcases the market's hunger for innovation in the freezer section and the desire for Caulipower's veggie-first versions of America's favorite comfort foods. Available in Three Cheese and Margherita at launch, the personal-size pizza offers 250 and 280 calories for the entire pizza and will roll out in stores late summer, in time for back-to-school.

Stuffed Puffs For #MemorialDay2019

Image
The S’more, a century-old American tradition, has been re-born. On April 28th, Stuffed Puffs, the first and only filled marshmallow – made with real chocolate – debuted at WalMart. Stuffed Puffs has created an innovative and proprietary manufacturing process to do something that’s never been done and “make a good thing even better.” Everyone loves s’mores. But not everyone loves making them. Juggling marshmallows, chocolate bars, and graham crackers around a campfire, or hot grill, can be a sticky challenge. All too often, the marshmallow does not get hot enough to melt the chocolate. Stuffed Puffs ingeniously solves the problem by putting the chocolate inside the marshmallow: “the chocolate melts while the marshmallow toasts.” It’s the fail-safe way to make a perfect s’more. “The idea was born around a campfire” said Michael Tierney, who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY in 2010. “It’s a simple idea, but very hard to execute, which is why it hasn’…

Boston, Massachusetts, is one of America's oldest and largest cities, with a metropolitan population of over eight million. Its status as a leading national center of tourism, education and culture earns Boston the added distinction of being among America's most expensive cities. For all that, Boston and its vicinity offers plenty of attractions that the whole family can enjoy without breaking the bank. Boston BargainsBig cities like Boston are largely associated with high-end shopping, but there are still great deals to be found if you know where to look. The thrift shops of Allston and across the Charles River in Cambridge are where cash-strapped college students buy their clothes, and much else besides. Out in the suburbs, the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets feature 170 stores over 600,000 square feet of floor space. Culinary CultureThere's a famous old toast which describes Boston as "the home of the bean and the cod." While seafood is certainly still plentifu…

Questions to Ask Your Mortgage Lender

Image
Before you begin the thrilling process of finding a new home, it's a great idea to select an experienced mortgage company like Sun West Mortgage. By choosing your mortgage lender before you look you have the benefit of acquiring a pre-approval letter from your lender. This shows potential sellers you are serious and confirms the amount you can spend based on your income evaluation. Getting a mortgage can seem overwhelming but finding the right lender can make all the difference. Here are two subjects you should research and discuss with your lender to get you started.  Types of MortgagesThere are many different types of mortgages. What type you should choose depends on quite a few factors. If you go with a 15-year mortgage you will be paying more monthly than if you choose a 30-year but the home is paid off in half the time. There are pros and cons to each kind of mortgage, so find the best mortgage company for you and have them walk you through your options.  Down PaymentA larger do…

Event Planning for Colleges

Image
College is an exciting time for young adults as they experience life outside of the nest for the first time. While students primarily attend for the education received, students often engage in extracurricular activities on campus. Colleges are the perfect place to host all types of events due to the varying demographics. RSOs or real student organizations across the country hold recruitment gatherings to entice other students to join. If students are looking to attract the best and the brightest, they may reach out to a college event planner for assistance.

#CarLifts For #FathersDay2019

Image
My husband was a mechanic in the United States Army, so the garage is his domain, while he sort of lets me have the house as my domain. Fair trade, right? He has a lot of tools, and the garage tends to get messy. I am always after him to keep the garage clean. And now his latest thing is that he wants a car lift. Say what? I was like are you kidding me? But after I did some research, I came to find that they really are not that expensive, and for all of the mechanical work that he does, it would be a really good investment! I figure he could get a 2 post lift versus a 4 post lift, and that would still be good enough for all his needs. I did a lot of research and looked at places online like Best Buy Auto Equipment and other places. I wonder if maybe a Father's Day gift is in his future? How awesome would that be? I think I would be the best wife on the planet, and that I would be in his good graces for a really long time to come, not to mention that, as I said, this would be a goo…

However, instead of turning your living room into a delivery room, a birthing center San Antonio can be a happy medium between the two options. Here are some ways a birthing center can make your delivery experience feel as good as home. More ControlHospitals are bound by certain laws that can make flexibility difficult.

Benefits of Popular Horse Insurance Policies

Image
Horses are among the more popular domesticated animals, providing companionship for owners, sporting activities for competitors, and learning for visitors. As such, it may be necessary to purchase one or more horse insurance policies to protect the horse should it fall sick or injured, as well as the people and property surrounding this large and powerful animal. There are several popular options for horse owners to choose from, depending on the ways in which horses are utilized in their everyday lives. Medical and Mortality InsuranceHorse ownership is as costly as it is rewarding and, like any investment, should be protected by comprehensive insurance coverage. Equine veterinarians are highly specialized and generally offer both on-site and clinic services, with both having the potential to be very costly if the nearest vets are far away. Insurance coverage can help offset the costs associated with regular check-ups and vaccinations, emergency visits due to injury or illness, and the …
