New Holiday Mint Flavors from Sonic! #Review @sonicdrivein

With our weather changing and the leaves falling, you can tell that we are headed towards winter. And one of my favorite aspects about all of that would have to be the holiday flavors. Whether it be pumpkin spice or everything peppermint, I just love it! So when I was contacted by Sonic Drive-In to try out the new Holiday Mint Master Blast and share it with my readers, I jumped at the chance.

I was sent a gift card to stop in at my local store and so a friend and I drove over earlier this week and grabbed lunch and a drink. I want to mention real fast too, though I am reviewing the Holiday Mint Master Blast, they have an awesome deal called the Carhop Classic. For $2.99 you get a Footlong 1/4 lb Coney or a Cheeseburger, plus fries or onion rings. And it tastes delicious! We both got one of the deals and ended up sharing the fries and onion rings because there was so much there. A great buy!

Now, on to the new holiday flavor. Sonic Drive-In has some of the best shakes and their Master Blast is a super thick concoction that I love, the type that you can normally only enjoy with a spoon as it is so thick you can't drink it up the straw. For my review, I tried the  Holiday Mint Master Blast in a small, too much food to enjoy and I knew I wouldn't drink it all. This new flavor mixes the wonderful cool taste of mint with chocolate Oreo! And not only do you have that all blended in real ice cream, you also get real Oreo pieces, and it is all crowned with whipped topping!

The first bite will literally make your head spin with the burst of flavor. Oh, and I can't forget the color, this alone will have you in a festive mood with bright green and dark rich Oreo pieces. This is very rich, I only ate about half of it, but again, I had already eaten a cheeseburger with fries and onion rings. If you were having this alone as a snack or a dessert, this would make an excellent treat!

Don't delay on trying this flavor, it is only here for a limited time and you don't want to miss it!

Fun New Kids Movies from PBS!

With the holidays approaching rapidly, we are all on the lookout for fun new gifts. And guess what? Movies make excellent presents for both children and adults alike! PBS children has some great new films that have come out recently that would make any child happy. Check them out below!

Anne of Green Gables The Good Stars

PBS Distribution announced that they will be releasing the L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES THE GOOD STARS” on DVD. The second installment of the classic best-selling Lucy Maud Montgomery story of a free-spirited teenager on Prince Edward Island returns after the successful Thanksgiving 2016 premiere, which reached more than 3.2 million viewers.

L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES THE GOOD STARS” will be available on DVD November 7, 2017. The run time is approximately 90 minutes, and has an SRP of $19.99. The program will also be available for digital download.

In this installment, Anne Shirley turns 13 and faces complex situations with friends, learns from inspirational adults, and experiences an escalating friendship with Gilbert. Her free-spirited nature is challenged by her perceived need to be sensible, a journey fraught with confusion and some unfortunate — albeit amusing — mishaps.

The program, written and directed by John Kent Harrison will once again star critically acclaimed actor Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert, along with the return of Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley (“The Captive”) and Sara Botsford (“E.N.G.”) as Marilla Cuthbert.

I have to admit, I am a big fan of the original show and was skeptical of this new series, but in all reality it was very good. You have to love the story line and they did a reasonably good job at keeping the characters in form. This is one I would say for teenagers or adults, yes adults will enjoy this one, but younger children may not understand all of it. Overall though we enjoyed it as a family and had a fun time watching it.

Regal Academy: Rose Cinderella in Fairy Tale Land. 

This November, Public Media Distribution, LLC, will release the brand new DVD, “REGAL ACADEMY: ROSE CINDERELLA IN FAIRY TALE LAND.”

Rose Cinderella thinks she is a regular teenager, but things change when she finds a magic key unlocking a world where fairy tales come to life!  Rose Cinderella quite literally falls into Fairy Tale Land and discovers that Cinderella is not only her grandmother but also the headmistress of Regal Academy, a school where fairytale families teach the next generation how to become heroes.

REGAL ACADEMY: ROSE CINDERELLA IN FAIRY TALE LAND” (SRP$12.99) will be available on DVD November 14, 2017 and has a run time of approximately 72 minutes. Episodes featured on the DVD will also be available for digital download.

The episodes on this DVD include:

A School for Fairy Tales
Rose was a normal girl from a normal town with a super-normal love of fairy tales, who falls – literally – into the Fairy Tale Land. There, she discovers that all the fairy tales she knows and loves have had one big adventure that never made it into the storybooks: they got old! Rose is enrolled at Regal Academy under headmistress “Granny” Cinderella with classmates Hawk Snow White, Joy LeFrog, Astoria Rapunzel and Travis Beast. They’re all grandchildren of famous fairy tales, but what about Rose? Could she really be the lost granddaughter of Cinderella herself?
The Great Dragon Race
It’s the day Rose, Hawk, Travis, Astoria and Joy have been waiting for – it’s time for them to learn how to ride dragons! But the teacher, Coach Beast, is a real taskmaster, and he’s determined to make life miserable for his grandson Travis. Class ends with a race to Dragon Land, but when Rose is separated from the others, she’ll have to earn the trust of her dragon in time to get back in the race and save the others from a big crash at the finish line!

The Swan in Swamp Lake
Rose is excited to meet Magister Rapunzel, the literature teacher, but is not so excited about climbing up Library Tower just to get to her class. After Rapunzel has an argument with her granddaughter Astoria in class, Rose, Astoria, Hawk, Joy and Travis are sent into the swamp for their assignment. What sounds like a boring day of hunting down plants turns into chaos when Joy becomes a frog and the boys have to kiss every frog in the swamp to find her, meanwhile the evil Vicky creates a super-gross monster to confound our heroes, and even the granddaughter of the legendary swan princess makes an appearance!

Now this is one that the four year old absolutely loved! I watched while doing other things but she enjoyed this fairy tale story as B is a big fan of princesses and all. It is a cute little movie with three episodes, and they are all a complete story in themselves. Real fun movie for the little ones!
