Simply Go-Gurt Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Sonya Sparks. Congrats!

Do your kids snack after school? Mine do, and I am always on the lookout for great products for them to be eating.  Go-Gurt is one of those products that moms like and kids like even better.  Go-Gurt is made from simple ingredients, and it contains no high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors or flavors.  I love that they come in convenient portable yogurt tubes.  Madison often wants to eat in the car, and this allows her to do so!  Go-Gurt is a good source of calcium and vitamin D too!  It comes in two yummy flavors:   Strawberry and Mixed Berry.  As you can tell, this is a winner in my house!

Simply… Go-Gurt is a good-for-you, low fat yogurt snack that you can feel good about giving to your kids.  Since we like it so much, I have arranged for one of my lucky readers to get a coupon for a free sample of Simply… Go-Gurt* as well as a Go-Gurt “Simplify Your Life” prize pack that includes a pocket Etch a Sketch, weekly planner and a seat back organizer!

*This coupon offer for free Simply… Go-Gurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, Nevada, North Dakota and Tennessee.
