Apple Coffee Cake from Sprouts Farmers Market

When I saw the Apple Coffee Cake on sale in the weekly sale flyer for Sprouts this week I told myself - "I have to get this."  We were running out of eggs so I went to Sprouts today to get them (with no intention to get this coffee cake at all).  While browsing through the bakery section I saw the sale sign above this cake - Apple Coffee Cake $2.99 Save $1.  Now I know their regular price is at $3.99, not too bad.

They package the cake in a 8"x8" aluminum pan with a clear plastic cover.  Just by looking at the crumbs, I can just feel them in my mouth.  My mind was weighing the pros and cons of bringing this cake home.  We were trying to eat more healthy this year. But in the end, my devil side won.  I bought this cake.

Immediately after I got home, I cut a small piece of this cake for myself.  It was so delicious.  The crumbs just melted in my mouth.  The cake itself was moist enough for me.  It wasn't overly sweet either and you can actually bite into some apple chunks in the cake.  I couldn't help it but had another piece. 

Final verdict - I will definitely buy again but may have to share half of it with another friend.  It is also good bake item to serve during a tea party for adults and kids.

Where can you get this yummilicious Apple Coffee Cake?

At Sprouts Farmers Market.  It is on sale for this week (Oct 16th to Oct 23rd 2013) for $2.99.

Sebamed at Costco

Surprised to see Sebamed products in USA at Costco.  I've known this skincare line for a long time from my visit to Malaysia.  My aunt always buy this brand for her family especially the body wash.  All the products has a pH of 5.5 which is very healthy for the skin. 

When I saw the table with all the different Sebamed items, I went to check them out.  The lady said this German company had just started their USA retail two years ago and that she is having the road show promotion at this Costco (Tustin the District) for two weeks.  She said the items are sold at a discounted price, almost like buy one get one free. 

I was interested in the eye cream.  The price for one is $34.99 outside according to her.  But at this road show, they are selling 2 item for this price.  I can choose to buy 2 boxes of eye cream or 1 eye cream and 1 moisturizer.  I bought the combo deal with 1 eye cream and 1 moisturizer.

These two items I bought have the Co-enzyme Q10 which supposedly help to reduce fine line and wrinkle.  I can see fine lines emerging on the side of my eyes thus I need a quick fix for it.  I also needed a new bottle of face cream for night time use.  It says on the box that visible improvement can be seen in as short as 28 days.  I'll find out about that and attest to it.

When I came home, I went to Sebamed US website and saw that they are selling this product for $29.95 each on their website.  It is not really $34.99 like what the lady told me.  But it is definitely a great deal to get two items just for $34.99 plus tax.

You can find them at Costco at the Tustin District from Oct 11th to Oct 20th 2013.
