Change the way you think about cooking pasta! Introducing Barilla® Pronto™, the easy-to-prepare pasta that is ready in minutes. Barilla® Pronto™ is prepared in one pot or pan – no need to wait for water to boil, and no draining required! Available in five delicious shapes (Spaghetti, Penne, Elbows, Linguine and Rotini), Barilla Pronto will help make your pasta mealtime prep faster and easier – all in one pan!

When cooked, Barilla® Pronto™ Spaghetti maintains its shape and texture. The unique half length ensures that Pronto fits perfectly in your pan. Barilla® Pronto™ delivers a delicious taste sensation in every “al dente” bite.

Where to buy
From Amazon – You get sixteen 12 ounce boxes for $34.46 USD.
From Amazon – You get one 12 ounce box for $1.83 USD.

Directions
1. Pour the whole box of pasta* into a large skillet (approximately 12 inches in diameter.) Pour 3 cups (750 ml) of cold water into the pan ensuring that the water covers the pasta. 2. Turn on the burner to high and set your timer to 10 minutes. Optional: add a bit of salt to taste. 3. Cook on high, stirring occasionally, until most of the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes but may vary by stove. Add your favorite sauce. 4. Continue to stir and cook in the sauce until desired sauce consistency and pasta texture are reached.

Packaging
This comes in your standard pasta box, complete with cellophane window. Box has product and company information on it.

Scent and formula
So uh this looks and smells and tastes just like regular pasta.

Ingredients
Semolina(wheat), durum wheat flour, niacin, iron(ferrous sulfate), thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid. Contains: wheat ingredients. This product is manufactured on equipment that processes products containing egg.

So this pasta is kind of cool. It tastes just like regular spaghetti and has the same texture, you just get to skip a step. I used this with some marinara sauce, fresh basil, garlic, tomatoes and parmesan cheese to make some yummy spaghetti. It was really nice not having to drain and rinse the pasta and I didn’t have to use multiple pots or pans either! This was convenient and easy to make. Barilla has a lot of recipes for their new Pronto pastas that you can check out. The kiddos are particular about what they eat so I just made our usual with it. They also have elbows, linguine, penne and rotini shaped Pronto pasta. We have a box of penne to try too. I just need to figure out what to do with it! I was half expecting this to be gross in some way. I thought it would have a weird texture or taste, imagine my surprise when it didn’t. We don’t eat a lot of pasta, but I will be picking this up for when we do. We all really liked it.

Hi Skullies! I have a review for Children’s Advil® Sugar-Free Dye-Free Suspension! I received a bottle and some coupons from Smiley 360. :d

Official description
When your child has a fever, you know what it’s like to wait it out. Children’s Advil® Suspension reduces fever fast* – even faster than Children’s Tylenol®. It lasts longer*, too – up to 8 hours with just one dose. And Children’s Advil® also relieves aches and pains.

From Amazon – 4 ounces for $5.99 USD.

Directions

  • Shake well before using.
  • Repeat dose every 6 to 8 hours, if needed.
  • Do not use more than 4 times in 24 hours.
  • Find right dosage on the chart. If possible, use weight for dosage; otherwise, use age.
  • Only use the measuring device that comes with the product to be sure you give the right dose. An ordinary kitchen teaspoon may not hold the right amount of medicine.

Packaging
It’s a white 4 ounce bottle that comes in a blue box. It has product information on the box and the bottle. The box and bottle both have yellow, red and black features with the logo.

Scent and formula
It smells like berries! Fumiko says it’s sweet and tastes like berries and it tastes good, not gross.

Ingredients
Active: Ibuprofen 100 mg (NSAID)* Fever reducer/Pain reliever. Inactive: artificial flavor, carboxymethylcellulose sodium, citric acid monohydrate, edetate disodium, glycerin, microcrystalline cellulose, polysorbate 80, propylene glycol, purified water, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sorbitol solution, sucralose, xanthan gum.

When I received this Fumiko was sick. Normally I just buy whatever store brand I happen to find. We were almost out of what we had, so I was really glad to get this. Giving Fumiko any kind of liquid medicine is a nightmare. She HATES the taste, it makes her gag and she usually gets a stomach ache. I’ve usually got to chase her down and corner her and then it takes me a good 10 minutes to get her to take it. This stuff is great. It’s dye free and sugar free and she likes it. I don’t have to fight her to take this, she takes it willingly. During the day she’s able to go to school and take part and function and not be a zombie, but at night she passes out cold and sleeps through the night. She gets horrible fevers when she gets sick and is just miserable with aches and pains and being tired and cranky. This keeps her fevers down and the aches to a minimum. This was a huge blessing to get! I will be keeping a bottle of this on hand for future sick times! I definitely recommend it, it works great! You might have trouble finding it in store. I can’t seem to find it, however it’s available online at several stores! Seriously pick this up. You can find their Facebook page here. And lastly you can get a $1 coupon here!
