As a lover of all things kitcheny and fun, I often review products and food items, not only for my own research, but to share my opinions with others. They are just that — opinions.
From time to time, companies will send me products to try, free of cost.
Whenever I review or refer to a product that was provided to me, I will make it clear in the post. I provide not only details of how I received the product, but I often link to the company itself. My reviews are honest, and if done at the request of a company, rest assured that the compensation of cash or product does not have any bearing on the content. If I do not like a product, I will either not review it on the blog, or I will state the reasons why I don’t like it.
If I purchased the product, I will not necessarily state that in the post.
From time to time, I do accept sponsored posts, for which I am paid in cash or other compensation. When I do that, I make it clear in the post and include a link to this policy.
