Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Cream and Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Feature #recipe #shaws #ad

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Albertsons Companies . The opinions and text are all mine.
Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert from my local Shaws have become our new "go to" dairy free ice cream this summer! Many of you know that we try to eat dairy free most of the time, especially my oldest daughter. Of course this time of year, we're looking for ice cream alternatives. I was pretty thrilled to find out that Shaws introduced their NEW line of products: Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Cream and Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert. Yes! It's so nice to have options. A lighter delicious ice cream without a chalky or chemical aftertaste. A dairy free option that's tasty and satisfying!

We tried two different flavors from Shaws:
Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Peanut Butter Cookie, so good! Made with either cashew or almond milk, Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert is a great non-dairy alternative to traditional ice cream! This was a hit! Delicious and definitely satisfying.
Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. You aren't missing out! The Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Cream was indulgent with less fat and calories and between 240 and 370 calories PER PINT, I definitely didn't feel deprived! These dessert options are definitely perfect on a cone or even straight from the pint! They're THAT good! With lower calories and fat and a higher protein content, this is a dessert you can feel great about!

Even though you're free to indulge with The Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Cream, I thought it would be great to make some ice cream sandwiches with them.
Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches:

  • Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
  • Simply scoop a teaspoon of Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Cookies and Cream Ice Cream in between chocolate cookies
  • Freeze and Enjoy!
I buy my Open Nature products at Shaws and you can also find them exclusively at all of the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw's, Star Market, and Carrs/Safeway. Visit Shaws to find a store near you and discover more recipe ideas.
Both desserts were creamy in texture and smooth. We are huge fans! Shaws has a big line of different flavored Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Cream and Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert selections to choose from! We want to try Open Nature Scandal-less Sea Salt Caramel and Open Nature CashewMilk Coffee Caramel Fudge next! There's a flavor for everyone! Which are you most excited to try?

Storyland 2018 Feature and $9 Off Coupon #sponsored #ad #nh #summerfun

**Please note, I did receive tickets to Storyland in exchange for this feature but all opinions are 100% my own, as always**

It just wouldn't be Summer around here without an annual trip to the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire and yes, STORYLAND! You might think we would be getting too old or bored of this park after so many years but the opposite has happened! I don't think my kids will ever grow tired of it. Storyland brings us a sense of nostalgia and so many memories from the past. It's also a TON of fun with new attractions for everybody. That's what we love about this park so much, there's always something new to enjoy, experience and discover. We don't grow tired of it and there's always new things to see and do, plenty of fun around every corner! 
Storyland is New Hampshire's #1 Kid's Amusement Park and open daily from 9:30am - 6pm! This year, Storyland's brought THREE new shows certain to wow everyone! Including Daniel Tiger's Grr-ific Day! Join Danial and Katerina Kittycat for a fun filled show of make believe and fun. After every show, the gang sticks around for hugs and pictures. The excitement on the kid's faces? Priceless! Bring those cameras and enjoy this fantastic new show! 
Also new? It's Magic, a fun filled magic show with a new magician yearly. This year, come enjoy the amazing illusions and fun! My kids always love this one, filled with audience participation and eye opening magic tricks. We saw an Iphone disappear last week - don't worry, it re-appeared at the end of the show!
Storyland also has their daily Farm Follies, Camp Fairy Tale and Cinderella's Royal Celebration at the end of the day, every day. We've found the shows are a great way to break up the day! With five shows, there's something for everyone! 

Now let's talk about rides! So many fun ones for kids of all ages! I've talked about the Roar-O-Saurus in the past. The only wooden roller coaster of it's kind in Northern New England! There are also tons of fun Dino facts all around to enjoy if roller coasters aren't your thing! 
The Crazy Barn raises off the ground and spins! So fun! And on a side note, that Farm Stand right to the left of it? They sell ORGANIC grilled cheese sandwiches and delicious freshly squeezed lemonade! So many healthy options along with the typical delicious park fare including the Slush Factory, Dunkin Donuts, Friends Around the World Food Fair and the NEW Los Bravos Burgers! There's something for everyone! Check out all their food options here
We also love Dr. Geyser's Remarkable Raft Ride! The perfect place to cool down on a hot summer day! This ride is super fun and a family favorite! Oh and yes, you WILL get wet! 
Kids can take a ride on the Antique Cars and even get their own Storyland Driver's Licence at Town Hall!
Storyland still has their Storybook Animals area that incorporates live animals including a rabbit, goats, chickens, pigs and sheep. It's a great educational opportunity for the kids. The Little Dreamers Play area is and interactive play area for the littlest Storyland visitors, complete with a shady area for kids to wind-down when needed.  

Characters are seen throughout the Storyland: Rory, Duke, Humpty Dumpty and more! We saw Tinkerbell and Cinderella during our visit! There's always someone to see and a photo to be taken!
On the way out, be sure to check out the Games and Gift Shops! Did I mention Yum-Yum Junction offers samples of their delicious fudge?
