Futurama Season 6 On blu-ray Now Review Diabetic Snacker





Have you been watching this series Futurama

from the makers of The Simpsons? I'm not

really a fan of the Simpson's but I do like

this Futurama series which is now in season 6

already. My how time flies once your show gets

cancelled and brought back. I think I like

seeing the guest stars the most on this since

they actually had the Star Trek crew on once

before. I mean Holy Cow do you know how hard

that would be! Plus many of the comical jabs

revolve around old movies and classic shows

and I'm always a fan of that.

This new blu-ray covers more aspects of a show

than any other I've ever seen. It's like they

actually sat down and thought of everything

that could possibly need to be known.
Tons of deleted scenes which is my personal

favorite to watch. You can really learn a heck

of a lot about a series by watching all of the

deleted scenes.

Looks at some of the
Special Features Included:

The Tip of the Zoidberg
Law & Oracle
Benderama
Mobius Dick
The Silence of the Clamps
Ghost in the Machines
Reincarnation Explained
and many more!

These are like the Sci-Fi geeky squad set for

nerds like you and me to relate to.

Launch Highlights from their email:

"The future will never be the same when the

time traveling pizza boy and his friends wreak

havoc on the world as they know it. Loaded

with tons of fan favorite special features

from the creators, “FUTURAMA” Volume 6 comes

to Blu-ray and DVD December 20th from

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
Phillip Fry is a 25-year-old pizza delivery

boy whose life is going nowhere. When he

accidentally freezes himself on December 31,

1999, he wakes up 1,000 years in the future

and has a chance to make a fresh start.
“FUTURAMA” Volume 6 once again features the

original voice cast including Golden Globe®

winner Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy) as Leela,

Billy West as Fry and John DiMaggio as

Bender."

Now Hitting Store Shelves On Blu-ray ARCHER Season 2! Diabetic Snacker



The following information is a synopsis of a press release provided
by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. Diabetic Snacker's Reviews
enjoys letting you know
about upcoming movie releases, new dvds,
new products and fun entertainment
news when possible. So here's the news:

ARCHER Season 2 Blu-ray Now Available! Diabetic Snacker Review

From their email:

"Sterling Archer, the world’s most dangerous

spy, and his snarky ISIS cohorts are back for

another outrageously raunchy season when

ARCHER The Complete Second Season comes to

Blu-ray and DVD on December 27th from

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Loaded with three exclusive top-secret

animated shorts, ARCHER The Complete Second

Season features all 13 episodes plus hilarious

never-before-seen extras!"


My review:

FX’s animated adult tv series
@FoxHomeEnt">Archer
returns

for its 3rd season starting January 19th and

will air Thursday's at 10 PM ET here in Indiana. Archer is

a sitcom that revolves

around the International Secret Intelligence

Service, better known as; ISISS. While the team is always acively busy with missions don't think that's the main objective of the show. It's about who can be the most backstabbing above all other's. It's like they go out of their way to be better at something than one of their friends. It's a vicious circle that keeps repeating over and over again with funny circumstances always popping up. They really try to take it to the next level and see what that limit amount could be.
Lots of great actors portrayed in this fun animated comedy
half hour which goes by very quickly.
You can find more about Archer on their twitter page here:
@FoxHomeEnt">Archer
It's a gutsy show with lots of ladie's action for the guys to
enjoy.

* Dvd Review * Love Begins Hallmark Movie Series Feature From
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment Diabetic Snacker Romance Time



Synopsis of film:

"After their father's passing, Ellen Barlow (Julie Mond, “General Hospital”) and her sister Cassie (Abigail Mavity, “Summerland”) struggle to maintain the family farm in Anderson's Corner. When Clark Davis (Wes Brown, “True Blood”) finds trouble in town on his way to California, Ellen agrees to hire him at the farm to work off his debts. Before long, Clark and Ellen unexpectedly develop feelings for each other. Ultimately, a turn of events inspires the pair to begin a legacy of love and faith together in this heartwarming family drama."

Love
Begins,
I enjoyed this old fashioned love story a heck of a lot. It
brings back some of my fondest memories of watching the series Little
Hoouse On The Prairie. Yes I was a true fan of that show so this movie
captures the feeling and comradery of that time period. It's a precious
take on the never dry story of finding your one true love. I liked
it so much I watched the dvd twice back to back. How's that for
a romantic rush?

This series from the Hallmark channel will capture your heart as
you watch it. You'll find peace and tranquility with hardly any
violence, no sex scenes and just plain good times in the old
west. Sure hardships happen and fate plays a hand in this
charming family friendly drama. I say give it a look you might
just want to do a double take yourself. It's available now on
dvd from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Diabetic Snacker's Product Review Disclosure:

I was sent a complimentary dvd of Love Begins from Twentieth Century
Fox Home Entertainment. All quoted text has been provided in a company
email. My opinions are my own and no other form of compensation was given.
Thank you to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
for sending Diabetic Snacker this dvd for reviewing purposes.

ICE AGE: A Mammoth Christmas movie On Blu-ray Review
Diabetic Snacker Great Kids Film for 2012 Gifts Stash Away!




Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas arrived on blu-ray here so I wanted to tell
you about it. Yes I know Christmas is over but this would still be a good
one to watch with your kids. It is a sweet 2011 animated comedy full of exciting fun which makes for an entertaining short Christmas special. Starring favorite Ice Age characters like:

Sid the sloth
Manny the mammoth
Diego the saber-toothed tiger (our fave)
squirrel Scratte
It has a lot of funny individual characters and voices your kids
will recognize and connect with included.

Synopsis from email:

"America’s favorite arctic herd is busy decorating for the holiday season. In his rush to help, Sid (John Leguizamo) destroys Manny’s (Ray Romano) favorite decorations. Manny is so upset he convinces Sid he is now on Santa’s naughty list. Sid, Crash (Seann William Scott), Eddie (Josh Peck) and Peaches (Ciara Bravo) take off for the North Pole to plead their case to Santa (Billy Gardell). Meanwhile, Manny, Ellie (Queen Latifah) and Diego (Denis Leary), worry over Peaches’ safety and race to find her. Back at the North Pole, Sid and his crew accidentally destroy Santa’s Workshop on Christmas Eve, and it’s up to these newfound friends to orchestrate a Christmas miracle. The instant holiday classic, directed by Karen Disher, also features the voice talent of Chris Wedge, T.J. Miller and Judah Friedlander."

There's even a Holiday appearance by Prancer the original reindeer of Santa Claus! This movie is great for children around 3 years old
or so and would make a nice addition to your family's dvd collection. Now since this is available in blu-ray format, you'll even have more extra spark and shine with your movie! The story is a classic tale so it will be just as great in 2012 and later.

The story is a traditional Christmas storyline
where an heirloom item is broken and the events that take place because of that. Your kids will really enjoy this holiday film. I also think since I just missed the Christmas deadline for this special movie that it would be a good fit for starting your early 2012 Christmas gift shopping. If you start stashing
away little gems like this now you'll be all set by the time that Christmas monster shows his ugly head again. It might keep you off
of Santa's naughty list unless you want to join up with Sid
on Santa's bad side.

Review Now Available On Dvd & Better With Blu-ray | The Rise of the Planet of the Apes | 2011

Movie Review The Rise of the Planet of the Apes On Blu-ray
DVD Is Available Now A Must See Film



wow, I don't know when a movie had me this frightened in
my seat. Most won't be scared but I'm afraid of Apes so there
the secret is out. I watched this anyway and it is so real it's
hard to imagine that it's not.
This movie has a riveting story that will
carry you well thru the movie. From the scenes of
during animal experimentations to find a cure
for Alzheimer's disease a genetically-enhanced
Chimpanzee uses his new found intelligence to
lead the other apes to freedom. It's a striking
bit of movie making magic, a
sound film and it's a great one to watch
happen right in your face (hence, blu-ray).
Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a fast paced
presentaion about the end of humanity though
take note that no animal's were harmed in
making this extravaganza. It takes place in
a setting much like our own now in 2012 Planet
Earth except for the Space Mission scenes.

Mr. Franco plays the sympathetic Will Rodman a
scientist with the romantic heart. Will makes
science look easy as he hurridly takes care f
his everyday business in his clean crisp lab
coat. He keeps the animals on the wonder drug
that Will hopefully cure Alzheimer’s in the
near future.
One afternoon Bright Eyes the lady ape throws
a hissy fit running through the Gen-Sys labs
and into the meeting room where Will is
pitching his cure to his boss. She has to be
put down by a bullet in order to end the
chaos, which begins an even bigger chaotic
journey. Bright Eyes was pregnant! So her
being killed ends Will’s dreams. However it
does offer him a new beginning to start over
his beloved experiments on a baby level. He
decides to take this ape baby home and raise
it himself. I know I wouldn't have done that

they are just too scary looking for me to ever
want to be in the same room with them. But
alas, Will is a trusting man and wants this
to work.
You will see his scientist characteristics
come out even more after he desperatly tries
to find the cure for this unforgiveable
disease once it strickens a couple of his
loved ones. The ethical side of the story then
goes clearly out the window and all hell
breaks loose for this upbeat movie. Not to
say I'd have done anything differently myself.
If you're looking for a story to compare to
the original movie this is not it. I think this new improved version is better. The blu-ray features are so bold and enhanced you'll feel like you are the experiment yourself. It's packed full of moving action
and you'll have to stay on your toes to keep up. If you get the blu-ray which you should since it's the best way to view any movie, be sure you watch the deleted scenes. Those are always my favorite part of a movie seeing what happened but you missed it. Or maybe seeing what you thought should have happened.
Either way, this is a great movie to add to your movie collector's
showcase for 2012. It really will keep you interested for the entire
showing with the great apes they've created in filmland with their amazing
precise moves and turns they are very life like-scary. I jumped off
of my seat at least 3 times during this feature so get ready for it.

previously posted press release info about the movie
from 20th Century Fox:

"Evolution Becomes Revolution
A single act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a
battle unlike any other when RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE
APES makes its worldwide debut on Blu-ray, DVD and
digital download on December 13th in North America and
starting December 7th Internationally. From the
Oscar-winning® visual effects team that brought to life
the worlds of Avatar and Lord of the Rings comes
revolutionary new ground - a CGI ape that delivers a
dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and
intelligence, and epic battles on which rest the upended
destinies of man and primate. James Franco (127 Hours)
stars as Will Rodman, a neuroscientist living in San
Francisco trying to develop a cure for Alzheimer’s
disease by testing on chimpanzees, giving them a human
level of intelligence. After a test subject’s baby,
Caesar, is orphaned, Will decides to raise him at home
on his own with his Alzheimer-stricken father (John
Lithgow; “Dexter”). What begins simply as a
continuation of his experiment quickly turns into a
problem for Will, as Caesar is taken away from him and
forced to live in a primate facility. As Caesar’s
intelligence continues to grow, he begins to stake his
claim as the leader of his new primate counterparts,
which will ultimately lead to the RISE OF THE PLANET OF
THE APES. Directed by Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist), this
special effects blockbuster features fantastic
supporting performances from Freida Pinto (Slumdog
Millionaire), Brian Cox (Red), Tom Felton (Harry Potter
films) and Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy)
in a ground-breaking performance.

ABC Family 2011 Tv Series | Switched At Birth | Now Available On Dvd Volume 1 Great Family Drama 2011



Tags: Dvd Review, Family Tv Reviews, Family Friendly Review,

ABC FAMILY BRINGS YOU SWITCHED AT BIRTH VOLUME 1 Now Available
On DVD!



The cast of Switched at Birth is a very
talented group of individual actors and now that
they are all joined in a single series I think they are each
great at giving their own spins to each of their characters.
I hope you've been watching it and are anxiously buying
your dvd now that it's available so you won't miss a minute
of this family drama.
I've been following
this parenting series from the start and I can
tell you it's hard to distinguish who is lying
and who is not sometimes the actors are that good
at making you believe them. You know how you can usally
pick out a few oddballs in a series that you
can always depend on to let you know the truth
no matter what? Well, you can't quite do that
with this one. They'll have you thinking you
know who is lying and who isn't, but oddly
enough you might be surprised.
The overall story is an original take so this
tv drama travels way beyond the usual
happening's in the goody goody World of ABC
Family's normal television shows. The concept
is something that could happen to anyone in
America at any given time so it's easy to
believe. Heck, I often wished growing up that
someone would have told me my parents weren't
really mine;Just kidding- ok, my brother Mike
that's another story.
Switched At Birth takes place in an
immaculatele household which I find to be
strange, who on earth keeps their house that
clean all of the time! That would drive me
crazy.
ABC Family's Switched at Birth takes
an emotionally charged step into a whole new
plain of existence and is well worth your viewing
time. It will give you a lot to
think about and will make you very happy
that this didn't happen to you.
Oh sure it raises some great questions about
family members honesty, secret identities and
the responsibilities of everyone you know will
come to mind.
The discovery is made from a high school
science project that there is no way the blood
of Bay Kennish could match that of her
parents. Turns out that Bay was switched at
birth with Daphne Vasquez who has been raised
by a single mom a little above the poverty
level. The two live really close together
which seems kind of fishy from the start. The
other set of parents involved are of course
rich or at least a lot better off since they
have everything including a guest house.
The families are frequently in the same room
together and thinking about how they never
noticed that their kid didn't resemble them at
all. I mean it's a little crazy you'd think
they would be smart enough to know something
as simple as that. I do find it unsettling that
they never talk to a lawyer so there might be
something shady going on there that hasn't
been revealed yet from the rich parents.
There's plenty to keep you tuned in since as I
said, the cast is great. The acting is superb
and it's a good story line.
There are the many contrast's you would expect
to come into play in this series such as
therich versus the poor, traditional family
values versus non traditional but there's also
an unexpected twist that's really obvious so
I'm not spoiling anything by mentioning it to
you.
Because of a childhood disease of
meningitis Daphne is deaf. So hand signaling
and signage come into play a lot ok maybe
a little too much for my liking. This adds a
lot of emotional drama to the plot but I do
wish some of the scenes wouldn't rely on
showing us what they say on screen. For me
with low vision you have to get right on top
of the screen in order to read it and they
don't keep it on the screen long enough. But
hey, if you know sign language at all you'll
be right at home.
A lavish guest house mentioned in the first
episode will be put to use in about the 3rd
episode and it will make you wish you lived
there it's so nice. This new extended family
must live together which seems odd to me but
it keeps the show moving at a good pace with
always something going on
so the guest house is the key hangout.
As the rich white lady with the exquisite
house Kathryn is an on edge kind of gal. Her
hubby Thompson seems a lot like an almost
"gay" dad would be but he's not gay he just
gives you that impression. Regina is my least
favorite of all of the characters
in this ensemble cast and sheinevitably is the
toughest cookie in the jar. She also seems to
be the only person who truly understands what
is happening but maybe it's because she is on
the sneaky side.
Daphne has a calming effect on you while Bay
is ever perky it seems. They do a stellar
job of being totally different from one
another in every way.
So in short the story is grounded and while
they are not a Modern Family so to speak, they
do have a lot of curb appeal. I think you
should get this dvd and start watching this
wonderful ABC Family series and see how
terrific life in sunny California can be.

###Previously posted press release info:

The following information is a press release provided
by ABC Family. Diabetic Snacker
likes letting you know
about upcoming movie releases coming out on dvd. I guess it's not
going to be available yet on blu-ray but I'm sure it will be in 2012.
This dvd would make an excellent gift idea for someone on your holiday list. It's a family friendly show that I seriously never miss. It has romance, drama
and an all around fun quality about it. I find it relaxing every week
to sit back and watch it. It makes you think what would you be like
if this had happened to you? It's a scary thought but hey it could
happen and it does happen every day all over the World.
You'll see how these two families are coping with this child switching
and be able to compare it to what you would do differently. I think it's
a great family tv show which is something that is hard to find these
days. So give it a look see or get it on dvd and watch it whenever you'd
like. Don't think this is just a girly drama either. My adult son also
watches this show and he likes it so there is something for everyone
on the tv screen.

If you know someone learning sign language it will be an educational
program for them to watch because they show a lot of signage techniques
and tips. I don't know how to sign so I'm glad most of the time they
still speak the words. It's hard for me with my low vision when they
just put the text on the screen so I wish tv shows would stop doing
that.
ABC Family.

Walking Daily | Exercise Tips | To Beat Holiday Blues Stress You New Year overwhelming Feelings New Year Panic Attacks Prevention For 2012


Daily Healthy Oriented Tips To Help Combat Stress Panic
Attacks Holiday Gloom Blues, New Year New You!



I hope you have a wonderul Christmas Day today and a very happy
New Year season!

12 Tips for a Better You This New Year

1.Start walking every single day. Don't think about

making time for it-just do it. Take 10-20 minutes and

just start walking even if it's cold or rainy outside

you can walk inside. No excuses just make yourself do

this daily.

2.Eat a healthy breakfast of 200 calories or less and 8

ounces of fat free milk so you get each day off to a

great start. It can be anything you want to eat as long

as it stays in the calorie range. I highly recommend 2

slices of turkey bacon and a scrambled egg to start.


3.Get your needed 8 hours of sleep every night you can

do it just make up your mind.

4.Start planning your meals ahead of time. It will be

such a time saver for your whole family if you do this

one simple thing year round. Hang a menu plan for the

month up on the fridge & stick to it. I like the ones at

Organized

Home.com
the best and they are free.

5.If you haven't switched already, switch to diet soft

drinks. Doing this simple thing can mean the difference

over years of time to having type 2 diabetes or not. It

will take a couple of weeks to get used to it but once

you do you'll feel so much better not drinking 39 grams

of sugar with each can!

6.Drink more water! 8-10 8ounce glasses at least per

day.
I no that is hard to swallow but I'm telling you there

is something magical that happens when you are drinking

enough water for your body to maintain good health. In

my own case it's called my feet are not 10x swollen

anymore
from my type 2 diabetes. It will also help you if you

are not diabetic so just start drinking the water.

7.Stop using real Sugar! Yes that's right, there's no

need to use real sugar anymore whether it's on your

cereal,in your coffee or in your recipes! Sugar is bad

news and splenda tastes great with no calories so use it

instead. No Splenda is not paying me to say that-I love

Splenda no aftertaste,no calories,great taste-It's the

single best thing you can do to help your family have a

better life.

8.Hold the Salt! I know I hate even saying this one

myself because I absolutely LOVE SALT on everything! The

problem is it's already in everything you eat so don't

add it to anything anymore. I have not found a good

tasting replacement for salt yet but I'll continue

looking forever
as some manufacturer has to be able to do this soon! So

just remove the salt shaker from the table & from the

stovetop! Replace it with some spices you like they are

all no calories. Put them in the salt shaker and see a

difference in the way your body feels.

9.Give up your worst habit you have! Whatever it is you

know it's bad for you so give it up! Make this the year

2011 that you can honestly say either you quit

smoking,stopped drinking.... Whatever the worst habit

you have is you have the power to stop doing it-take

control of your life!

10.Walk in place! I deliberately have picked one tv show
I tivo to walk in place every time I watch it. You can

do it too & it will be a great 45 minute workout for

free! I do it during Brothers & Sisters every week. Pick

one of your favorite shows and just go for it.

11.Add more fruits and veggies to your diet. There are

many newer fruits on the marketplace give them a try and

add them to your weekly grocery cart instead of the

candy/chip aisle. You'll feel a lot better about

yourself. Plus they actually taste great.

12.Have a fun outlook on life! Be glad you are alive and

cherish each day like it was your last. You'll feel so

much better than if you let emotions creep up on you and

stay buried.

That's about it. Take care of yourself and don't let the little things
that annoy you take over your life. It's your life-make it what you
want it to be! Only you can make your dreams happen!

Child's Play Childrens 2011 Dvd Movie | The Voyages Of Young Dr. DoLittle | Available Now For 2012 Fun

Kids Funny Movie Dvd Review The Voyages Of Young Dr. DoLittle
Submarine Adventure Animated Animals



The DVD Is Out Now At Retailer's For The New Year


It's strange the fascination kids have with animals but
if your child is one of these such creatures, you'll be
glad to know that chances are they’ll like this presentation
of
The Voyages O Dr. Dolittle
because it has a ton of pretty adorable animals
for them to watch and interact with. The main character, John

DoLittle is told that animal's are in danger so he
takes off in his Uncle’s Submarine to go help him out. Yes
I know makes us all wish we had our private Submarine to
set sail with at a moment's notice. The target
destination for this venture is DoLittle Island.
This is where he learns
that it

has been taken over by vicious Ramsey the horned ugly Ram and his

army of
big bad Ape's. With a little help from some

new found animal friends, John comes to the rescue and saves

the island and of course the animals. It's a cute tale and it's
got some comedy scenes.

Elizabeth, who is 3 loved the colorful animals in this

movie especially the Rhino with the Hollywood glasses as
she calls them. She really liked the songs and did a little

dance with some of them while she sat on the couch. Being a girl,
she didn't much

care for the Ape brigade and I noticed she hid her eyes

whenever they were on the screen so maybe it's a little guy
thing to like Apes. So I guess she was

scared of them. At least it did hold

her attention since their was music she could move to

included. The movie is 80 minutes in length so I think it's just the right amount of time for keeping their little minds occupied.

Doctor DoLittle The Voyages Of Young
is based on the classic 1920's children’s book serie
and the all star animated cast includes: Jane Seymour (“Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman”), Jason Alexander (“Seinfeld”)#my favorite, Tim Curry (“Charlie’s Angels”) and Tom Kenny (“SpongeBob SquarePants”). So the voices will be recognizable to even the youngest of movie fans.
All of the dialogue between the characters flows smoothly. It's a pleasant movie to add to your kid's vast collection that they will want to watch again.
There
were several instances that make you laugh out loud in
this comedy adventure.
I do think children probably in the 4 to 7 year old age

range would get a bigger kick out of this film. The

animation is wonderful and each scene moves along at
a very fast pace.
Some of the keypoints your child will take away from this feautre are:

being loyal counts
being friendly to animals
helping other people
courage is key
friends are important
being part of a team is good

I really liked the name of the island "DoLittle", it sounds like
a place where I'd definitely want to visit or live for quite awhile
being as lazy as I am.

The movie is easy for kids to associate with because
all of the animal's voices are funny. Comedy is always a great way to bring family and friends together. Start your own tradition this new year by watching more movies with your kids like this.

Here's what my co-writer thought of this movie below.

The Voyages Of Young Doctor DoLittle
by Gloria litz


The movie we reviewed was "The Voyages of Young Doctor

Dolittle". I watched it with 2 three year old girls and

1 four year old girl. The kids were really interested

for the first 20 minutes then lost interest. I continued

to call them back to watch it and they would for a few

minutes and would lose interest again. I thought it was

a little like the movie "Madagascar" but not as funny

and entertaining. There were a few fun parts but not

enough to keep the kids attention for the entire movie.

| Purex Triple Action Ultrapack | 2012 Formula Liquid Laundry Detergent Insiders Look New Product Review Diabetic Snacker

* Product Review *
Purex Triple Action Formula's New Line For 2012 Is Like
A Cool Mountain Breeze, Gentle Free 'n Clear Cleaning
Power!





The folk's over at Purex just came out with a totally new
Triple Action Ultrapack Laundry
detergent formula to add to their entire liquid

laundry detergent line and I wanted to tell you about how much
I liked trying it out. I am a Purex Insider so I

have just received one of the first bottles and I

couldn't wait to tell everyone about the mess I used it to clean
up. I love being

able to know about new product launches all over the

internet.

Here's the story; I was having a blast making one of my favorite
recipes from Rachael Ray called 5 minute fudge which I make every
year at Christmas time because I love it so much. Of course, I do
make it sugar free being diabetic but it still tastes great. Anyway,
this time when I was trying to form my Christmas Wreath on the buttered
cookie sheet, I somehow missed the pan entirely! I don't know what
happened but about 1/2 cup of this hot gooey chocolate fudge landed
up on the front of my tshirt! No, I wasn't bunt thank goodness,
just mad that I had wasted so much of my beautiful fudge! So I had to
redesign the wreath to a dinner plate size concoction and it still
came out pretty enough. I then immediately tried out my new Purex
bottle and quickly put the tshirt into the washing machine. I was
really surprised when all of the chocolate buttery gooey mess came
out! The shirt looked like nothing had happened so I was relieved
by that.

The new and improved Triple Action Purex

formula delivers even better on Purex's promise to leave

your clothes bright white and clean. It also comes in at

about half the price of the leading brand of liquid

laundry detergents. How cool is that? A new line and you

save money too, I like it.

Purex's research and development scientists have been

working hard to create an even better formula for moms

everywhere and one that will continue to deliver the

value that we as moms expect.

The new Purex Triple Action Ultrapack leverages the best parts of

their current formula combined to deliver great cleaning

plus improved brightening power. Purex Triple Action is

currently available in both Free 'n Clear with no

fragrance and Mountain Breeze with a light outdoor fresh

clean fragrance varietie's. I love the free 'n clear

for my family since we have so many allergies. It's so

nice that a company takes that fact into consideration

and works around it to come up with a killer product.
