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:

Nature’s Valley Granola Thins Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Veronica Garett. Congrats!

I’m always on the lookout for a good yet tasty snack for both me and my kids. Nature’s Valley Granola Thins definitely fit that bill.  Granola Thins are 100 percent natural, individually packaged, and at 80 calories per square, a perfect pick-me-up you can feel good about eating.   They have two flavors — dark chocolate and peanut butter.

Both flavors have been a huge hit in our house.  My 3 year old constantly asks for these!  The chocolate ones take care of any chocolate craving I may have too!  These are a great snack for everyone.

Since we liked these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get a Nature’s Valley Prize Pack that includes a nature-inspired mug, mouse pad, and desk calendar.  Here’s what you need to do:

Which flavor would you like to try?  Peanut Butter?  Dark Chocolate?
