Yoplait Go-Gurt Yogurt and MyBlogSpark Target Gift Card and Go-Gurt Giveaway!

“Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.”

MyBlogSpark and Yoplait Go-Gurt Yogurt have teamed up to offer my readers a fantastic new giveaway!


Yoplait Go-Gurts are a favorite around here for a really fun, tasty snack!  We love to freeze them and then offer my daughter "ice cream" for a special treat.  It's a great way to let my daughter have something special that's better for her than traditional ice creams and other desserts.  Though we've been enjoying Go-Gurts for several years, here are a couple of things I did not know that I was pleased to learn:

• Go-GURT is now made with natural colors and flavors and no high fructose corn syrup
• Go-GURT is a good source of vitamins A, D and Calcium

Yoplait Go-Gurts are also great for a lunchtime treat!  Whether frozen or just taken from the fridge, these are sure to make kids happy.  I'm pretty sure they make parents happy too.  I've had to stop my husband from enjoying an entire box a time or two :)

Now, on to the giveaway!  As I mentioned above, Yoplait has teamed up with MyBlogSpark to offer readers a $25 Target gift card and several coupons for FREE boxes of Go-Gurt.  Enter below through Rafflecopter.

Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme Cereal Review & Giveaway

“Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

This review definitely brought me back to the good ole' days!  I remember eating yummy (might as well call it dessert) cereals for breakfast almost every morning when I was a kid. That is what I was expecting with the Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme cereal.  One of the things that TOTALLY surprised me is that Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme cereal only has 9 g of sugar per serving, which is the same as a different "healthy" cereal I'd been giving my kidlet many mornings.  Whoa!  I won't mention the name of the cereal, but if I had to choose between that cereal and sweet Cookies 'n' Creme bits, I'm going to go with Hershey's! Their Cookies 'n' Creme cereal is also a good source of Calcium, Vitamin D, and 10 other essential vitamins and minerals.  I'm thinking cereal has come a long way since I was a kid :)

While I can't with a good conscience tell you to feed your kid cookie cereal for breakfast most mornings, I can say that I think it's a great dessert alternative or a wonderful treat on special mornings.  And....General Mills and MyBlogSpark have graciously donated an extra prize pack just like the one I was given so you can try this cereal out for yourself.  This is a mad sweet prize pack! I LOVE the dispenser.  It's super fun for kids (and adults), and the cereal bowls for breakfast on the go are unique and fun too!  Overall, this has been one of my favorite giveaways to do on this blog because the prize pack was so fun, and I'm excited that one of you is going to win one!!!

I'm going to give Rafflecopter a go for the first time, so I hope this all works out okay :)  Thanks so much for entering and good luck!
