Snackimals Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Timmy. Congrats!

Peanut butter and chocolate –two of those classic flavors that can instantly take you back to childhood. And, for moms like yourself looking to avoid high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients, finding that balance between nourishing your kids and allowing them to indulge in those classic childhood treats can be difficult.  Barbara’s Bakery, known for their all-natural cereals, has several snacks that follow their “say no to the bad stuff” mantra. These snackimals have no hydrogenated Oils, no artificial flavors, no artificial preservatives, no refined sugar, no trans fats, no artificial additives, and no high fructose corn syrup. Barbara’s just introduced two new flavors to their Snackimals (animal cookies) line that I got to try: Snackimals Peanut Butter and Snackimals Double Chocolate!

Let me tell you — you can’t go wrong with these.  I brought them to a pool play date we had with my husband’s aunt, a bunch of his cousins, and their kids.  Needless to say, we had a lot of people who got to try these out.  Everybody loved them.  You know you have a great product when the adults are snacking on the snackimals just as much as the kids.  Both snackimals were good, but I have to admit that my favorite was the double chocolate.  (Seriously, who doesn’t like chocolate?)  Another thing that impressed my husband’s aunt was that the bags have weight to them.  It isn’t like normal cookies where the bag is as light as can be (and you are hungry again 20 minutes later).  These were a hit! The fact that they are better for you is an added benefit!

Since these were such a hit here, I’ve arranged for one lucky winner to get their own set of cookies!  Here’s what you need to do:

Head over to Barbara’s Bakery and tell me another one of their products you’d like to try!

Cake Pops Review and Giveaway!

Sponsored by Tomoson.comThis giveaway is now over. The winner is Courtney. Congrats!

I love chocolate and I love cake, so Cake Pops are something I knew I had to try. Veronica’s Treats makes them. Their rich fugdy double chocolate cake recipe is mixed with just the right amount of cream cheese frosting; made into bite size pops; drenched in white or milk chocolate coating; then embellished with beautiful designs. Some describe it as a truffle; some say the inside tastes like cake batter. I can’t decide what they taste like besides really, really good! They are a little on the rich side, so after eating one you are satisfied. They were so good that Bill and both kids wouldn’t share theirs with me. They all told me to get my own!!!! Can you believe that?

Since my family loves them and doesn’t plan to share, I knew I had to arrange for one lucky reader to get their own assorted set of Cake Pops.  Here’s what you need to do:
