True Lemon brand products & GIVEAWAY

True Citrus is one of the best companies I've ever seen! They are a small company who love citrus and helping feed America. Not only do the have wonderful products they are a very caring company who goes above and beyond. It's unheard of 
companies doing all they do! They are based here in the good ole USA! Finding companies that are based here not only make me want to buy their products  more but to see that they support people who live here make me happy to see that they are such a caring company! 

This company is doing all they can for America and have a new partnership with Feeding America. They are going to donate 1 MILLION MEALS to feed a America over the next year! And would love for the customers to join in. Please go to and enter your codes now! 

I contacted True Citrus about doing a review for some of their products. I told them I had just began blogging and would love to try anything they would like for me to review. Not expecting them to contact me back but then they did! Not only did they contact me back quickly they also was more than happy to mail me some products. Thinking they would send me a sample of packet of just the lemon I was shocked to see the size of the box once the mail ran! Talk about going above and beyond! I got this HUGE box of goodies to test out. 
 All the goodies I was sent! 

What is True Lemon you ask? True Lemon is just that Lemon it is made of
 100% Natural ingredients. One packet is equal to the taste of one lemon wedge. There isn't any calories, fat or sodium! They sell the Crystallized Lemon in two packages a 32 count packet and then the shaker. 
Here I used the Lemon in my sweet tea. It tasted as if I had a real wedge but with out the pulp or seeds. :)

I used the True Lime in my homemade hash browns 

True Orange is one of my favorite flavors there is in fact I love the flavor of oranges its taste is sweet but not too sweet it reminds me of pixie sticks but in a much mature adult way. I've been caught with these in my purse and when I have a sweet tooth. LOL well these almost taste like the sweet candy I crave but with out all of the bad stuff I don't need or want! With no sugar in these little packets I don't feel guilty. These are sold in a 32 count packet as well. 
True Lime is wonderful for a twang taste your craving and is great for cooking and even great to flavor your favor beer. A friend of mine loves Corona brand beer and always is grabbing limes well if your not in your local grocery store then your not always able to get those limes with this Lime packets or shaker you can always have that flavor on the go. 
Now who doesn't love Lemon Peppered chicken? Oh Everyone at my house does! We love it so much I didn't even get to take a photo of it cooked! As a teen I used to babysit a little girl who would beg me to make her Lemon Peppered sweet peas! That's right! Lemon Peppered sweet peas Ya! I know you are sitting there thinking how gross! Oh but let me tell you! It's divine! When you feel like your getting bored with cooking try it! Its still a fave of mine all these years later. Now with this True Lemon brand of Lemon Pepper there isn't anything in it but goodness! 100% d-lish!

I've been wanting to step out and try making dehydrate okra chips. I love eating healthy and with True Lemon brand products I can! These was so good! I sprinkled a little water on the okra then stuck them in my dehydrator they covered them well in this Lime, Garlic & Cilantro. They came out crispy was loved by all! 

This seasoning is also great on roasted bake potatoes 

Orange Ginger chicken anyone? Now you don't have to run to a Chinese restaurant to get your favorite orange ginger sesame chicken. You can now make it a home.
Now there are a few great flavors that True Lemon makes thats great for flavoring your water but this Grapefruit is my all time fave! It is perfect it taste like I freshly squeezed a grapefruit.
