MealEnders (Product Review + Giveaway)

18 Feb

As part of my Sweat Pink Ambassadorship I received four packs of MealEnders for free in exchange for a review. I volunteered for this opportunity, and all opinions are my own. There are no affiliate links in this post.

The giveaway is now over, so comments have been closed. The winner has been notified.

Have you ever mindlessly snacked even though you weren’t hungry? Or kept eating past the “full” point until you were uncomfortable? I definitely have.  That’s why, when I was contacted about a review of MealEnders I was intrigued. However, honestly, I was also skeptical.  We’ve all seen ads (and as a blogger I get contacted from random companies) that promise a miracle product to help you lose weight.  However, when I looked closer at the ingredients of MealEnders I was presently surprised.  There are no drugs, weird herbs, no funny sounding stimulants, and no high fructose corn syrup. There is some sugar, but only 2g per lozenge, and only 15 calories. Sign me up!

The basic way they work is by signaling to your body that it’s time to stop eating.  The lozenges have 2 layers – the first is a sweet layer that tastes like dessert (for real!). I will talk about each of the flavors in more detail below.  The second layer of the lozenge is a cooling layer – sort of mentholy – that “engages the trigeminal nerve to cue the end of eating and clear the palate.”  Interesting!  You can find more about how MealEnders work here.  Eating a MealEnder also gives your body and mind something to do during the time after you finish eating – the time it takes for your mind to catch up to the idea that you are in fact, full.

They come in convenient individual wrappers so you can stick some in your car, purse, wherever. I know I’ll be keeping a stash in my desk drawer at work.

Another thing I really liked is that in all the media I have read about MealEnders, the company never claims to be a miracle maker. They say a few times that it’s important to use MealEnders in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise to create healthy habits.  No quick fixes here, just a tool to help you control those random cravings.

I have tried the different types of MealEnders over the past week and wanted to share my thoughts. MealEnders come in four flavors: cinnamon, citrus, mint chocolate and mocha.

I tried cinnamon first, after lunch one day when I was working from home. I find that I tend to mindlessly graze MUCH more when I work from home since my entire pantry is available.  I actually expected to like the cinnamon the least but LOVED it.  It tasted like apple pie!

I tried the mocha after dinner one night hoping to fulfill the need for sweets I have after dinner. It more than did the job and I didn’t feel like I needed to snack that night either.

I really like all the flavors but my favorite is probably the cinnamon, and my least favorite is the mocha.

I honestly don’t have anything bad to say about MealEnders – I think with the variety of flavors there’s something for everyone, and they are a convenient and helpful tool.

    I’m with you; I would probably like the mocha least. An interesting product concept though. (Also liked and followed on Facebook/Instagram).

    Did you find that it worked? Did you keep grazing after? (Can I be in the giveaway??!)

    That’s a very interesting product. I’d be interested in the cinnamon flavor too!

    I would be interested in the cinnamon – what a great name for it too – setting you up for success.
