Photos printed directly on canvas: Easy Canvas Prints

Taste Test: Promax Crunch energy bars

Promax was kind enough send us a couple of their new Promax Crunch energy bars to help fuel up for the season. I tried both flavors: chocolate and peanut cherry and I’d say the peanut cherry tastes the best. The chocolate has a hint of coconut but was a bit bland and was just like […]
