Store Brand Baby Formula Wins a Final Round in Court

This post brought to you by storebrandformula.com. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you are a parent that formula feeds your baby, and you’re looking for ways to save money without compromising health… then listen up.

I know there is some debate among consumers about whether or not store brand infant formula is just as good as the national name brands, and something happened just this week that should let anyone who has thought about switching to store brand formula put their mind at ease.  Store brand infant formulas won a major victory this week when a U.S. Circuit Court upheld a $13.5 million false advertising claim against Enfamil maker Mead Johnson.  This was one of the largest damages awards ever for a false advertising campaign.

The case centered on the successful argument by PBM Products, Perrigo’s store brand infant formula business, that Enfamil’s advertisements of superiority to store brand formulas were false and misleading because store brand formulas offer the same nutrients at the same levels as Enfamil.

“The Court has made it clear that national brand and store brand suppliers are entitled to fairly compete and advertising abuses will not be tolerated,” said Perrigo Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa in a statement. “We also appreciate the Court’s recognition that PBM could lawfully compare its products to national brand products.”

These products are just as healthy for you little one as the more expensive brands as we know our little ones deserve nothing but the best.  Go here for more information.  Also go here to read more about storebrandformula.com and the resources that are available.

This Giveaway is Closed: Freschetta Simply Inspired Review and Giveaway!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA®. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was recently chosen to review the Freschetta Simply Inspired Pizzas!  I was so excited to get this opportunity because Freschetta is one of my favorites for frozen pizza.  I normally purchase the naturally rising kind so this was my first experience with the Simply Inspired line. There are eight distinctive flavor varieties; I chose to review the Classic Bruschetta.  What can I say I’m a classic kind of girl! J

 

FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™ pizzas are made with top quality ingredients. They use real cheese, premium meats and their sauces are made out of tomatoes picked at the peak of their ripeness. It has a thin and crispy crust that is absolutely delicious.  I also live the fact that they do not use any high fructose corn syrup in the product. Their FRESCH-TASTE SEAL™ Packing locks in the vibrant flavors, while using 30% less packaging material.

I paired this up with a salad for an easy meal and it was a hit for my family! They also were so nice to give me a bamboo cutting board!  And guess what??  They sent one for another lucky reader along with a coupon to try your own Simply Inspired Pizza! 

Here is how to enter.

Soak up Spring Savings at Pier 1!!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Spring is here and you know what that means!!!  Spending more time outside and enjoying your outdoor living space.  I am one who LOVES being outside and soaking up the warm Indiana weather as long as I can so a nice set of patio furniture is a must for me.  While out looking for something to spruce up my patio I stopped in Pier 1

 

They have an awesome selection of outdoor furniture right now.  One set that really caught my eye was this white wicker patio set!  Its classic and can easily be changed year after year  to create a different look by just changing the pillows.  As you can see by the prices below, changing the pillows or adding an outdoor rug is low cost and its just enough to refresh the look for the year J

 

I also Love the idea of bringing the Papasan chair outside for the season!  This is just another cool way to make the outdoor space more comfy and get your money’s worth.    If your always looking for somewhere to store your patio furniture for the year, why not take that wicker patio set and put it in the sunroom or family den! These sets will easily do double duty as an nice indoor set of furniture. Slip an area rug under it and warm up the space with a small throw and you’ve got one set of furniture that takes you from Spring all the way through winter!  Now how is that for a bargain! J

While I was there I picked up this cute little guy to add a bit of whimsy to my patio!  My daughter of course LOVED this!

    

 

Izea and Pier 1 are partnering up again for a series of Pier 1 Tweetups in several select US cities. If you’re in the Orlando, Atlanta, Dallas, or New York City areas and will be around on the dates mentioned in the above link, we’d love to see you! Make plans to come visit, and meet some of your area’s bloggers & Tweeters.
