What I think

These bottles are ridiculously adorable.  I just love them. They are about the size of a single serve milk bottle you would buy at any store. So they fit in little hands easily. The kids love them and look so cute drinking out of them. The bottles are made from a thick glass, so I feel safer letting the kids use them because they are less likely to shatter if dropped. They came with some cute straws that fit that vintage look, the straws are paper though so you will want to find a source to get more. I am fairly certain you can find reusable milk caps for these to make them into lunch box bottles too. I love the way they look and they really fit with the country chic vintage vibe that is so popular right now.

So flipping cute!

I think these look awesome as is, but you could put chalkboard labels on them and maybe a jute bow and use them for a country party. I have just the two kids but then I have my two kids I do care for here alot so having four of these works for us. I may do the labels just so they can tell their drinks apart. They all want to use these at lunch every day.  So this is a definite DO, as they are requested EVERY SINGLE DAY! 🙂

Here we are again at the fun bit. I bought this item at a discount in exchange for an honest review. This is my honest opinion.
So The Dude and I were already looking for a new basting brush. We had one with silicone bristles and one with the strange hair like bristles and did not care for either. The hair one kept shedding into our food. Yuck! and the silicone one didn’t hold the sauces well so it took forever to baste anything. Then I saw this bad boy and I was like, Oh Yeah!
Freshly washes and ready to rock!

So I show it to the dude and he is like, Oh Yeah! We both agreed it looked like a better brush. Sadly, he had to go to work so it fell on me to test this bad boy out. Dinner was Salsa Verde Chicken! I had a package of chicken legs, which the kids love. So we pulled that out and got going.

The brush fits in the hand comfortably, which is important to me. The silicone bristles really hold alot of sauce. I was actually very surprised. I was dipping from a bowl and there was some chunks but the salsa verde was fairly thin. So I was concerned the brush would not hold much. Boy was I wrong.

Scoops up like a spoon!

The brush held a good amount of sauce. When I brushed it on to the chicken, it was smooth and effective coverage. I didn’t have to keep going back over the same place. Each scoop with the brush generously covered 5 legs with sauce. I should have done a video for this one because it was fantastic. our chicken turned out awesome!

Coverage was amazing.
Coverage was amazing.

So we definitely approve of this item. The Dude can’t wait to get it on the grill this weekend.

Our final answer is, put this in the Do pile!

Cheers,

Domi and The Dude
