I received two really cool products from Lifeguard Press.
The first is a little paint can of gummy bears from Dylan’s Candy Bar. I am not a huge fan of Gummy Bears, because I thought they all kind of tasted the same and were hard to chew. I was partially wrong!
I was pleasantly surprised at how good the bears tasted. Each one was a very distinctive flavor. I wasn’t wrong on how hard they were to chew. I found them tough to chew, however, the rest of Team Modern Mommy Reviews (other than Tater) was keen on them and insisted that their “chewiness” was perfect for gummy bears.
I absolutely loved the taste of these bears (and ate a bit more than I should have…It may be evident on my hips quite soon)!
We also received a pretty Lilly Pulitzer “Floaters” Melamine place set (plate, bowl, fork and spoon). It is cute! It has flowers and seahorses in a pink and green color combination. Princess loved it! (She loves anything of the aquatic, feline and insect variety)!
I thought I would love the set for it’s originality, durability and cuteness. And I do!
I have just one concern with the place setting. I researched what “melamine” is. According to Wikipedia, melamine is: Melamine is combined with formaldehyde to produce melamine resin, a very durable thermosetting plastic used in Formica, and melamine foam, a polymeric cleaning product. The end products include countertops, dry erase boards, fabrics, glues, housewares, dinnerware, cooking spoons, guitar saddles, guitar nuts, acoustic foam paneling, and flame retardants. Melamine is one of the major components in Pigment Yellow 150, a colorant in inks and plastics.
However, if I had known what melamine was, I might not have chosen the dish set. There are lots of cute coordinating items, like a place mat, and watch bands, I would recommend checking out the “Floaters” theme in one of those, because the Lilly Pulitzer pattern is just too cute to pass up!
So, for Modern Mommy, safety is a concern. I love the Dylan’s Candy Bar gummy bears…Yummy! The Lilly Pulitzer set is beautiful!
