Say It ANT So! And a GIVEAWAY!!

Hola folks!

If you have been a reader of Chocolate Kisses for a while, you know that at the end of last year a few major things happened to me. One of them being that I sold my old house and bought a new one. When I was getting the house inspected, I noticed several ant piles. Big ant piles.

It's warmed up in Columbia and the ant piles are still there. But I haven't seen any ants. And it's been raining. So this is why it has taken me so long to even open the boxes of strips. I didn't put any outside. But I did use the strips in my garage because a critter seems to ALWAYS be in there.  

I used the Roach Killing Bait Strips...and they work! Don't believe me? Look.

A cock-a-roach. Dead. On the garage floor. The sticky substance on the back of the strips didn't really work for me so I just placed them strategically around. It was also hard for me to break them off the plastic so I just ended up cutting them with scissors.

Here are some specs about the products:
Roaches or ants find the bait and eat the bait. Insects carry the bait back to the nest or colony. Other insects in the nest or colony are exposed to the insecticide and the entire nest is destroyed.

So unlike spray insecticides that just kill the bugs you see, Combat Bait Strips are designed to kill the nest and colony that are beyond your reach--attacking the source.

So now, for the GIVEAWAY!!!!

Leave a comment here OR on the Chocolate Kisses Facebook page letting me know the critter(s) you love to hate and you will be entered to win your choice of either Combat Ant Killing bait strips or Combat Roach Killing bait strips. One will win!
Congrats to K. Lee and T. Watkins!

Combat is also holding a $1000 Sweepstakes! Visit this site to enter:

Good luck!!

  1. I hate anything that crawls and looks like a rodent! This would be perfect in garages and back door areas!

    1. LOL I know this all too well from you! And yes it is perfect for the garage! I haven't put any around my back (or front) doors because they are still conspicuous. Did I spell that right? :-)

Life and its accomplishments should be celebrated. My friend retired. He left me and now I’m all alone. Not really lol, but he was surely something special to me. I imagine he will spend many days on various golf courses and he will learn new ways let his chickens entertain him. I’ll definitely stay in touch for the eggs! (Joke!)
In honor of his second retirement, we threw him a party. He protested. He did NOT want a party. He thought he didn’t want a party. I’m sure he’s as happy as a hen that he let us do it for him. He was scared no one would come, but they did! And he was overjoyed and overwhelmed with love. Aside from coordination duties, I wanted to make him a few things from my heart. I made him golf themed cupcakes, a loaded chicken salad, shrimp and black bean caviar and punch. There was a tremendous amount of food. We tend to equate love with food, so he should know just how much we care.
In his farewell speech he told a room full of people that 1. I am his soul mate (but not …

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
