Take It From Me: Hotlix Review & Giveaway

Hotlix Review & Giveaway

If you are a mother, ever-surprised by the stream of "treasures" your son finds/makes; frogs, bugs, mud-pie's, etc., then you might have the perfect candidate in your household for this product! I had my 12, 9 and 3 year-old brothers assist me in opening and testing this product and couldn't help but smile at how thrilled they were to try these creepy-crawly treats. 
 Hotlix is a goodies shop selling delicacies such as Scorpion Suckers, Cricket Crackers, Maggot Munchies, Edible Ants and a variety of other tempting treats! They have a whole line of insect candies, with real and completely edible bugs inside. My oldest brother could not stop bragging to everyone that he had eaten an entire scorpion (pictured below)!
 The Cricket Lollipop was another favorite, along with the Larvet Treats. My husband, along with every other male in the house, who passed by the box of Cheddar Larvets had to try one - just to say they had eaten a maggot.
 As well as being fun and funny treat to share, they are also a tasty novelty that are great for a birthday gift or other present. People will not stop talking about the time you gave them a box Larvets for a snack!
As well as insect treats, Hotlix also has a line of unique non-insect candies in a ton of crazy and exciting flavors including Jalapeno, Cinnamon, Moon Dust, Dinosaur DNA and many more! My youngest brother was not ready to try the Edible Ants, but loved the cinnamon lollipop.
Last but not least, Hotlix sells deliciously flavored toothpicks! Currently online they sell Mint Toothpix and Cinnamon Toothpix. I have to admit that I could not stop sucking on the cinnamon flavored toothpick, the flavor lasted almost an hour and I am a huge sucker for cinnamon treats. 
 One of my brother tried a combination of Larvet and Cinnamon Toothpix, I was not as brave, but he said he loved it!

Hotlix has goodies for the whole family and I would definitely recommend checking out their website and trying some treats! They are both yummy, entertaining AND very affordable. You can buy Hotlix here.

Hotlix has generously offered two treat packs containing four lollipops, two cases of Toothpix and a box of Larvets to two of our lucky readers. Enter the rafflecopter below for your chance to win!
