I think I prefer the pomegranates, Catherine, tried some white chocolate covered bleuberries last weekend ... oh my, they were so delicious ... glad I didn't buy a whole box of them :-)
Happy Friday,
Sylvia

You got me with the edamame. YUM! We have friends the farm soybean--they laugh when I tell them how they package and sell edamame and dried edamame. It's all in the name, I guess!

BeadedTail said...

I've never had edamame but anything with chocolate sounds good! That was nice of Cover Girl to come thru like that!

Katnip Lounge said...

Food and Money AND customer service!

WINNING!

Laurie said...

I'm in for the chocolate covered pomegranates, anything covered in chocolate is a good thing! Is edamame that acquired taste? They do look good though. Need to find those bars Catherine, and thanks for the Cover Girl heads up!!

TexWisGirl said...

it is nice to hear something good about a company!

Tamago said...

They are healthy, good treats! I love edamame beans very much. I'm impressed with Cover Girl! That's a good customer service!

Delicious looking snacks and yeah for getting back your money. Thanks for being my contact to the world last night. After a good night's sleep (drug induced) I am feeling much better.
Have a great weekend!

Hey, at least they gave you the money back. Would have cost them far more to cut a cheque than the purchase price. Of course, it would be better to make a good product in the first place.

As for the snacks...I'm starving! I've had those pomegranate ones, but I think, if you read the ingredients, it's not the actual pomegranate, but juice. Or maybe it's another one of their products that's juice only and not the real fruit. A bit disappointing, but still very tasty. :-)

Pantherka said...

You're making me cravings your contribution :-) ... I think I'll take chocolate :-)
Have a nice weekend.

Okay - Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranates - HAVE TO BE GOOD FOR YOU! sandie

Ann said...

gotta love a company that stands behind their product. Not many of them around any more

Eileen said...

Good things indeed. I'll confess, the first time I ate edamame beans I though they were like snap peas and tried to eat them, shell and all.

Didn't work...and I looked like a knothead! AND we were in a restaurant at the time...embarrassing!

Dearest Catherine,
Haha, we got home from our 3-day mini vacation at the Hyatt House (2 free nights) in north Atlanta and shopped at Costco.
Did buy TWO bags of those Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegrates. They are so good with coffee or with green tea. Bought a mixed nut jar at Costco that also contains Edamame Beans. Guess what? One of our feline girls KILLS for Edamame beans... So funny. Good for you for getting this rebate; positive PR about CoverGirl.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Eating healthy is so important and you are doing a good job... The Dark Chocolate Pomogranates look good. Did you like them?

Not sure about those beans though.. Doesn't sound like a 'snack' to me... ha

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Mary said...

Mmmm! Pomegranates! I'll remember not to try the lipstain. :)

Carolynn Anctil said...

I've never heard of chocolate covered pomegranates. What will they think of next? Hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather! We'll have to get together again soon for a chat and maybe a wee wander along the river..?

Nancy said...

I love chocolate pomegranates..they are delicious...

Have a great weekend...

Michael Manning said...

How fortuitous, Catherine! I'm enjoying a treat of blueberries while reading your post! Coincidence? ;)

SweetMarie said...

I love dark chocolate! I'm impressed by Cover Girl. I've got an addiction to Carmex and I rarely wear lipstick. But, I did hear about a coral lipstick that Maybelline has out that I may try.:)

Lúcia said...

I've never heard about chocolates and pomegranates before, it seems a good combination! ;-)
