Online Ordering & Mini’s

My recent order from arrived yesterday.

The order contained probiotics, 5 pounds of stevia, and nooch.

And they threw in a couple free samples

They usually throw in something free but this was the first time I got jelly.  And I love jelly!  

The mini jar reminds me of what my grandma used to throw in her purse when leaving fancy restaurants. One or two for the road was her thinking.  Can’t argue.


I needed to replenish my stash of stevia and nooch.  Especially since I liberally douse my popcorn with melted butter, melted coconut oil, stevia, and nooch.

I get This Nooch from iHerb because it’s 40% cheaper than at WF’s

Note: It’s very hard to hold a can of nooch with your left hand and not dump the entire canister, and balance and then focus a DSLR with your right hand, and take a picture that’s somewhat in focus.  But hopefully you get the noochy drift.

I love the buttery + coconutty + sweet + cheezy flavors.  I eat this combo all the time.

I am a huge popcorn fan.  I have a whole section of Popcorn Recipes and am always adding things like cinnamon, ginger, maca, or chocolate chips to my popcorn to jazz it up.

From my last post about National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, I am so glad many of you were able to celebrate.  Even if unintentionally since I know most bloggers eat their fair share of PB every day anyway.

I’m glad you played along with creating your own holiday.  Lots of you wanted to create a Chocoholics Day.  I am down for that.

Dessert: Raw Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

Combines yesterday’s holiday with today’s nooch.  Perfect.

There’s nooch in them.  I created this recipe a couple years ago and added nooch because I feel the nooch adds some “authenticity” in replicating the Reese’s PB Cup filling.  The nooch adds just a tiny amount of “grit” and savory-ness/salty-ness to the peanut butter filling, very similar to store-bought Reese’s PB Cups.

2. Do you like popcorn?

Yes, love it!

If so, how do you prepare it? — I use a brown paper bag, place 2 Tbsp of popcorn kernels in it, fold the top down, and microwave it for about 75-90 seconds

And what’s your fave popcorn topping? — Lots of buttery spray (such as Pam Buttery spray) or melted (vegan) butter, coconut oil, nooch, stevia, and chocolate chips for me.

3. The mini jelly jar reminded me how much fun mini foods are to eat.  What do you like that’s mini?

I like:

Mini Blueberry Muffins

Mini Chocolate Chips

I like mini debt

And Mini Chocolate Donut Holes (Vegan, GF, No-bake & take 5 minutes)

What do you like that’s mini?

  1. My grandparents TOTALLY do the same thing, except they’ll empty the whole basket… It’s a little bit embarassing

  2. I LOVE popcorn. I usually pop it on the stove in coconut/canola oil because my microwave is ghetto and doesn’t rotate, so popcorn doesn’t usually pop. I like it salted and nooched!

  3. I love iHerb. They actually have reasonable shipping rates and are usually SUPER fast, too. And I love the free samples they throw in! They are my go-to for buying chia seeds. It’s $8 or $10 from them or $25 from my co-op. Yeesh.
    You’re making me really want some popcorn now!! Man, I can’t remember the last time I had a bowl of popcorn!

  4. I like mini everything. I make all my cookies small, because then I can eat more of them. Plus, cute little things are just…cute.

    Love nooch, love popcorn, love cooking it in the micro, love my micro, but don’t love the coconut oil thing. I don’t know. Doesn’t it make your popcorn all soggy? Even when I could eat butter, I never liked it on popcorn, because they’d turn all soggy and nasty. I’d pick around those, so all that was left was a bowlful of mushy soggy butter-laden popcorn. Which I bet sounds like heaven to some. :)

    • i need something to get my massive amt of toppings to stick, so either use spray (coconut oil or Pam) or just melt butter/coconut oil…but that’s much more gloppy. So the spray is better but it’s also more expensive that way and Im cheap. There IS some sog factor but honestly it’s probably b/c of the abundance of nooch and stevia and cinnamon i tend to add :)

  5. Girl you know I love my popcorn! And like you, I love making different concoctions – preferably of the chocolate variety ;)

  6. I’m all about weird flavor combos! This one sounds good, interesting, but good! I have been getting the same brand of nooch from WF, good to know I can get it cheaper somewhere else!

  7. Wow, I’ve never heard of the paper bag microwave popcorn trick! Do you put oil in with it, or does it work without it?

  8. Funny you mention popcorn, because I was just snacking on some! I love how versatile it is: I can add some spices for a savory snack or some chocolate chips or a warm batch for some melty goodness!

    I’ve heard so much about iHerb, but haven’t ordered anything from them! As frugal as it makes me sound, the fact that they send free samples is really appealing!

    I also need to get my hands on some nutritional yeast — Top of my foodie to-get list!

  9. I’m going to make that popcorn right now. Perfect evening snack!

    Oh, and I love mini-muffins. :-)

  10. I love getting things in the mail so im always ordering online, I love all things mini especially cupcakes soo cute :)

  11. Hmmm…that nooch is the same price as our WF by the pound. I guess I’m lucky there.

    Last thing I ordered…a book I think. I don’t remember which one.

  13. Last thing I ordered online was a super cute necklace. I love popcorn, but I just don’t eat it often enough!

  14. Anything is cuter when it is mini! My personal favourites: baby shoes, the mini little one bite mandarin oranges, and mini cupcakes!

  15. Last thing I ordered online was cacao butter and a bunch of other stuff from nutsonline. They ship incredibly fast and tend to throw something in too. I order an awful lot online because we live at the end of the road in the boonies and I have esoteric tastes, lol!

    I don’t care for popcorn, but Phil adores it, and really isn’t interested in any fancy toppings: a lot of salt, usually butter or some kind of oil, that’s it, and a huuuge bowl! Popped on the stovetop.

    Mini debt–haha, congrats again!
    Most of my favorite snacks are little bitey things that you can eat three or four of for a serving.

  16. 1. What’s the last thing you’ve ordered online?
    I ordered the most amazing tea from Amazon: White Chocolate Kisses by Bigalow (and it came in a 6 pack… as in 6 boxes! ha ha)

    2. Do you like popcorn?
    I did back in the day but I don’t eat it anymore.

    3. The mini jelly jar reminded me how much fun mini foods are to eat. What do you like that’s mini?
    Hm, good question – I generally like everything BIG! Go big or go home! ha ha!

  17. I have been enjoying your website for weeks now and made several recipes. I want to try nooch soon.

    You mention iherb alot. I order supplements and some food products from and anytime I’ve done a price comparision they are cheaper than iherb. Might want to check them out. Although they don’t have some food products that iherb does.

    Thanks for the blog.
