Two Yummy Giveaways

in Giveaways

I have been cooking up a storm lately and learning lots of new baking tricks, so I will have some posts next week sharing some of my newfound knowledge with you. I just have to have yummy food when I’m pregnant so I end up cooking much more than normal. This means my kitchen is always a mess and leads my husband to come up with strange ideas like, “Maybe we shouldn’t eat for a while. I’m tired of the mess.” This was what he said to me last night. Sheesh. You’d think he’d appreciate the abnormally delicious food! We’re both tired of the mess, so maybe we’ll just go on scraps for a while…

Anywhooo, the giveaways. We have two products to give away that would definitely be classified as yummy food.

1. Chex Mix Bars Basket of Indulgence

chex mix bars prize pack

Oh my. Have you tried the Chex Mix Bars? I posted about them before Halloween because I thought they would make a great treat to give away. The box says granola bars, but I think they’re more like a healthy candy bar. With less than 150 calories per bar and 8 grams of whole grain, you can definitely have at least one a day. And a box of these Chex Mix Bars is probably less than a bag of candy, so there you go.

Included in the Basket of Indulgence are some really fun products. Along with the Chex Mix Bars, you’ll get chocolate candles, caramel lotion, a loofah, hand massager, nail brush, and spa towel. My hands and wrists get really sore from all the typing I do as a transcriber and also as a blogger, so this hand massager has been wonderful. It really gets that tension out with much less effort on the part of the massager. Aaaahhh. Who doesn’t love a hand massage?

Thank you Chex Mix Bars for this fabulous gift basket!

2. 12 oz. Package of KRAFT Singles (any variety)

2% Kraft Singles Kraft Foods Sliced Cheese

Two people will each get one product voucher for a 12 oz. package of KRAFT Singles, perfect for making grilled cheese sandwiches!

KRAFT actually just came out with a new 2% Singles product that is made with milk from cows not treated with added growth hormones (I think it’s that rbST stuff). Cheese made with 2% milk is perfect for little ones who need all the extra fat and calories they can get, and now KRAFT Singles are more kid friendly without those extra hormones. My little guy loves cheese and especially grilled cheese sandwiches made with these KRAFT Singles.

Amen on the food. Unfortunately I just had gestational diabetes with this last pregnancy, but I’m so glad it has gone away since I had the baby on the 29th of October.

So, enjoy your food. I’ve been trying to celebrate the last two weeks.
