I’m excited to announce that I was entered to participate in the Sweatpink Ambassador campaign for MealEnders. They are a new, totally safe way to curb overeating and teach portion control. I received my my awesome package of MealEnders lozenges on Tuesday evening. It was the perfect timing for back-to-school night.
Every year, I bring goodies [[and I mean the not-so-healthy]] goodies for my parents, and any others, who take a handful to munch on throughout the hectic night. It’s always a hit. I have parents who, I don’t even teach their students, come back each year, because they know I always have food. Food is the way to anyone’s heart. Being the health nut that I am, I always kill myself trying to fight back the urge to eat the same goodies I provide. This year, I was prepared with the MealEnders lozenges.
I’ll admit, I was skeptical at first, but after finishing my soup, and trying to get last minute items ready for the night, I wanted to grab something out of the “treat drawer” in the classroom. IT IS A DANGEROUS THING TO HAVE IN ANY CLASSROOM! But, I tried the chocolate mint lozenge and was pleasantly surprised. The outside part was a nice, smooth dark chocolate coating, that took away my sweet tooth fix. As you get further into the little gem, you’re hit with this cooling mint sensation ((the sensation is hard to explain, but it takes over your mouth)), that cleansed the palate and gives you that freshly brushed teeth feel. Now we all know, once you brush your teeth, you don’t eat anything for the rest of the night. That’s exactly what happened. I didn’t touch food for the remainder of the evening.
MealEnders comes in four flavors: Chocolate Mint, Cinnamon, Citrus, and Mocha. I personally LOVE the chocolate mint flavor. I could actually eat them like they were candy, and not feel so guilty about it. BUT, they are all delicious in their own way. The cinnamon flavor is like a snickerdoodle cookie//meets sticky bun. It was quite yummy. The Mocha starts off with the creamy chocolate flavor, and quickly turns to a mocha//coffee flavor with a kick of mint. Sounds weird to most, but you would have to try them to understand what I mean. Lastly, the citrus flavor is a refreshing taste of summery key lime pie.
“MealEnders Signaling Lozenges are a first-of-its-kind weight management tool designed to curb overeating and teach portion control using a combination of behavioral psychology and sensory science. Free of stimulants or other harmful “diet” ingredients, MealEnders catalyze behavioral change by retraining the mind to stop eating with the eyes.
MealEnders consist of two components: a sweet, outer reward layer and a cooling/tingling inner core. The outer layer provides a measured dose of “dessert” associated with the end of a meal, while the inner core engages the trigeminal nerve (the nerve that senses “taste”) with long-lasting cooling/tingling sensations that cleanse the palate.
Sucking on a lozenge when you know you’ve consumed enough — but can’t stop — keeps your mouth and mind occupied during the 20-minute Overeating Zone, giving your body’s natural satiety process time to catch up. MealEnders are an easy, safe and sustainable way to curb your appetite.
Each Signaling Lozenge contains only 2 grams of sugar and 15 calories…and they taste great!”
After back-to-school night, I left the lozenges in the classroom to give away to some staff members. It was so much fun to see their reactions and the faces they made while sucking on them. They may have made some interesting faces, and sometimes couldn’t find the words to describe them, but they obviously loved them, because I was requested to leave some in the room. They find themselves running to them when they want to snack, or after we have lunch. It was also their mission to try each flavor && debate about which ones were the best.
I am excited to continue sharing these little gems with family and friends at holiday parties, and to give one of you the chance to win your own packs of MealEnder lozenges [[4 packs//1 of each flavor]].

As always, I was provided a MealEnders gift box to simply review. I was not required to post a certain way. The opinions expressed on my blog are 100% my own.
