Chuck E. Cheese’s New Pizza – Review and Giveaway

Posted by Valerie's Reviews at 12:19 PM 28 comments

*There were 277 entries. The winners are Allison and Audrey.
Thank you for entering*

My kids love Chuck E. Cheese’s (I don’t know a single kid that doesn’t) so I was super excited when they emailed me asking me to try their new pizza.

Chuck E. Cheese’s has a new pizza recipe for the first time ever. This in itself is exciting because to me their pizza wasn’t the best and we typically didn’t go out there expecting good pizza.

This is what Chuck E. Cheese’s has to say about their new pizza recipe:

We started from scratch to bring you our all-new, cheesier, crispier pizza. Made with fresh, never frozen dough, 100% real Mozzarella cheese, zesty pizza sauce, and a variety of quality toppings, it’s a pizza the whole family will love! Along with our garden fresh salad bar and oven toasted sandwiches, we have the perfect recipe to satisfy your appetite for food and fun!


We order a half cheese and half pepperoni pizza. The pizza was fresh and tasty. We all enjoyed several pieces. I would rank Chuck E. Cheese’s pizza up there with other top chains now. My 6 yr old said it tastes great and she loves it!


The service was great. I had 2 separate employees stop by our table during our meal to make sure everything was ok.

The games as always were great. Everything seemed to be in working order. I even saw a couple of employees walking around and testing the games to make sure they were working properly. We were there a few hours and both my girls had a lot of fun as always.



Be sure to check out Chuck E. Cheese’s website for more information on their new pizza recipe as well as other fun activities.

 Be sure to sign up for their email newsletter to receive coupons.

I am so excited to be participating in the Mompact Blog Hop. There are over 120 blogs participating and you will have a chance to win mom invented products on each one. You have until September 17th to visit each blog and enter to win.

Have you ever wanted to wear a shirt but couldn’t because your bra straps show? I think most of us have and it is so irritating to either not be able to wear that particular item of clothing or to have to buy a specific bra just to be able to wear it.

That is where Strap Tamers come in.


Strap Tamers consist of a clip (to hold the bra strap) and pin which is fastened to the inside shoulder seam of a garment.

From eveningwear to active wear, Strap Tamers are perfect for all your sleeveless styles.

You can leave Strap Tamers on your clothing while laundered again and again.

Whenever you wear that garment, the Strap Tamers are already in place, waiting for you.

How To Use:

Check out the website to find out more about Strap Tamers.

You can also follow Strap Tamers on facebook and twitter.

Remember to check out the other giveaways, you can find a complete list on Mompact.

You can also visit The Penny Wise Mama for the next giveaway.

Bath-a-Licious Review and Giveaway

Thank you for entering*

Bath Bombs Etc. (Bath-A-Licious) was founded in September of 2010 and is a (military)-family owned and operated business. Based in the Deep South where the fragrant scents of flowers are strong and the southern breezes and southern hospitality abound, we have created a line of bath bombs/bath fizzies and Fizzy Bath Salts which bring these fragrances to you for an experience in your bath/shower that is not only relaxing and moisturizing but is also pleasant to your senses.

I was super excited to try these bath bombs from Bath-a-Licious as bath products are my guilty pleasure. These bath bombs come in a wide variety of scents so there is something for everyone. I was sent a Bath Bomb Ball in Tickle Me Pink as well as Fleur de Lis Bath Bombs in Bubble Gum and Tropical Temptation.


I really like the size of the Fleur de Lis Bath Bombs, they were the perfect size for my baths. The Bath Bomb Ball is much larger and split into two halves, it is perfect for those who like larger bath bombs. These bath bombs made the water feel silky which made my skin feel the same way. The scent was strong enough to smell but not too strong. It also lingers even when you are through with your bath.

My favorite of the 3 scents is the Tickle Me Pink which is a very girly scent. The website describes it as a rich combination of amber and vanilla with a faint undertone of black cherry. The bubble gum really does smell like bubble gum and is a great scent for kids. The Tropical Temptation smelled like a day at the beach complete with a hint of coconut. The website describes this scent as fruit punch with white florals.

I know some people prefer bath salts over bath bombs especially since you can control the amount of product you put in your bath. Bath-a-Licious also carries Fizzy Bath Salts in a variety of scents. There are also Shower Steamers for those who do not take baths, how cool is that? These products would also make a great gift, perhaps a cute gift basket.


You can browse through all the scents and make a purchase on the website.
Also be sure to follow Bath-a-Licious on facebook to be kept informed of any future promotions.
