Perrigo Review & Giveaway



I received a sample from Perrigo for the sole purpose of this review
I've almost always bought store brand items. To me they taste exactly the same but are usually quite a bit cheaper. I can actually estimate that I save at least $40 each shopping trip just by buying store brand items. $.40 here and $1 there, it adds up quickly! 

I was contacted by Perrigo Nutritionals to do a review on their baby items. 
The loot!


9 Pouches
 4 Yogurt Bites
 and 5 Puffs

My 2 year old still loves all these items, so I knew this would be a big hit around here. Am I the only one who previously thought name brand items were made by the brand name company and relabeled??  I didn't know they were all made by their own company, but I'm definitely happy to know that!!

We received items from Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, Target and Cottontails (Stop N Shop?). All the items match up to the name brands and taste the same, but are significantly cheaper.

My son just devoured all of these. The Yogurt Bites and Pouches are all gone. The puffs are half way there. These are the perfect snack and compliment to breakfast for us. I love the quality of them and since they're cheaper I continue to buy them! But they're almost the exact same thing as name brand.
I also really enjoyed flipping through the book. There's some great inspiration in there!

Price: Varies, but each item is usually $.50-$.75 less than the name brand counterpart on average.

Overall: *****

*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Perrigo in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Perrigo for allowing me to review this product and for offering a giveaway

I sometimes will buy store brands, it depends on the item! If I want brand names I just usually use coupons so it's around the same price as generic.

Some items are exactly the same as store brand so I'll buy the store brand to save money. However, some items, such as Oreos, taste way better than store brand so, in that case, I stick with name brand.
