Crazy Sweet Tuesday {Sponsored by Trident}

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where I hope that all of the Fall sweets you link up will make Mother Nature stand up a take a listen to my pleas. It’s going to be 97 next Saturday here, people. Sigh.

I have a confession to make. Well, two confessions.

One, I’m addicted to gum. Like, I’d chew it all day if I could. I see it as an eating deterrent. ;)

Two, I love music…but I am not a music person, if you know what I mean. I love listening to the radio…but never think to turn it on in my house. I have no idea who sings the songs I love…just that they sing them well. So, if you happen to say to me, “I love that new Pink song! Don’t you??” I’ll nod and say yes even though I have no clue what you’re talking about, because I love Pink, so I’ve probably heard and love her new song too.

When Trident contacted me about their See What Unfolds Live campaign, where I would get some free gum and one of my readers would get free gum too, I was stoked.

And then I read about the music part. Which scared me a little.

You see, Trident has a new product, Trident Layers, which combine layers of flavor all into one stick of gum. Peach & Mango, Cherry & Lime, or Strawberry & Citrus (the one I’m totally stoked about).

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to chew away.

Trident is getting you in the mood for the collaboration of flavors by talking about some of the greatest music collaborations of all time, starting with Steve Aoki vs. Duran Duran singing “Hungry Like a Wolf”.

Hungry Like The Wolf

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Trident.

{Full disclosure? I had to view the video before I remembered how much I loved this song. See? I have issues. The Real Housewives have rotted my brain.}

I started thinking of other music collaborations I love. DJ Google had to help me, but I was reminded of some that I already have on my iPod, and some that I need to download soon. My favorites:

  • Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera, “Moves Like Jagger”
  • Bad Meets Evil (Eminem and Royce Da 5’9) and Bruno Mars, “Lighter”
  • Rihanna and Eminem, “Love the Way You Lie”
  • Nelly and Tim McGraw, “Over and Over”
  • John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, “Summer Nights” (of course, how could I have forgotten that one???)
What are some of your favorite music collaborations? I know you can think of some. Help a girl out, I need new music for my iPod.
And, if you can tell me one of your favorite music collaborations…you can enter to win a years’ supply of Trident gum!
I’m so jealous. If you win, I may have to bum some from you.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck! Chew some for me!

Hey, before we get on with the party…

1. I guest posted my love story today for Mackenzie over at Friday Night Date Night. It was so fun to write – brought back all those memories from the first few months with my husband. If you like sap, soulmates, and looooooove, go check it out!

2. Have you entered to win the Kindle Fire HD? All you need to do is register for Online BlogCon. Because you totally want to go to the conference, right????

And now for the fabulous features this week…

Caramel Milky Way Cookies by What’s Cooking Love? I mean, caramel. Love!

Apple Cider Spice Cake with Apple Cider Frosting by Bird on a Cake. Stunning…and Fall. I want Fall.

Caramel Apple Spice Cookies by The Domestic Rebel. (Because I can’t get enough Milky Ways, obvi. Must. Buy. Some.)

Pancakes on a Stick by Pint Sized Baker. This is going to make me mom of the year, I know it.

Peanut Butter and Apple Sweethearts by M double M. Such a great idea, I know it would get Jordan to eat peanut butter with apples!

And now for the most clicked sweets. There was a tie this week, which I’m kinda glad about because I looooove both the recipes!

Pumpkin Better Than….Cake by Something Swanky. I bet it really is better than…. ;)

Homemade Twix Bars by Miss Candiquik. To. Die. For. I heart Twix!

Thank you to everyone who linked last week. Also, thank you all for your support on my blogiversary (winner will be announced tomorrow) and of Online BlogCon. You all rock SO much!

Let’s start the party already!



{Trident sent me gum to try and enjoy. All opinions are 100% my own. They asked me to include the video in my post, but the collaborations I mentioned really are my favs!}

    I could chew gum until my jaws hurt!!! I cannot for the life of me think of any collaborations that I love! Unless you count Justin Bieber and all the folks he “features”. See, my kids have control of my radio!!! Thanks for the party!

    Got a few things here…
    1. I LOVE Gwyneth Paltrow and Hewey Luis in “Cruisin” (Don’t ask why)
    2. Can’t chew gum – TMJ problems, can’t bite into whole apples or eat a lot of gummy bears either :( BUT… my daughter would LOVE a ton of gum!
    3. Thanks for featuring my Pancakes on a Stick. Jordan will love them.
    4. Great party. I hope you have a great week. I’m also glad we met this year. Thanks so much!

    Hi Dorothy! Thanks for being such a faithful party hostess and for visiting my blog even when I’ve been a blogging slacker all summer!! Your comments always make me smile! We’ve moved north so I am now avoiding those 90 something degree fall days! It actually feels like football season up here! :-)

    Thanks for hosting as always! I’m always so bad about “name that tune” I can sing along to almost anything (maybe a bit off key) but now you’ve put me on the spot. I’m going to age myself now, Simon and Garfunkel are what comes to mind. I love all the ones you listed and I usually have country on the radio.

    One of my favourite collaborations is Nelly Furtado and Swollen Members “Breathe” – it has a great beat for running, and it reminds me to breathe. I also love Andrea Boccelli and Sarah Brightman “Time to Say Goodbye”…Run DMC and Aerosmith “Walk This Way”…just to name a few!

    First are we twins? I love to chew gum, I easily go through a pack a day if I have it. Easter Bunny and Santa ALWAYS bring gum to the kids and then while they are at school I get to chew it! Second I am the same way about music. I often sing songs in the car from “back in the day” and my kids will ask who sings it or what the name is and I always say ” I have no idea. I just like the song”. Third “Summer Nights” best song ever.
