Quaker Oats Simple Harvest & a GIVEAWAY!

I love blogging about food. Now that is a simple statement, isn't it? Well, it's true, I love sharing my love of cooking and blogging has been such a fun way to do it. I've become friends with some wonderful food bloggers who are always so generous whenever I have a question. I've even been lucky enough to win a few giveaways just by leaving comments on their blogs. Another great thing about blogging is that I've been given the opportunity to try some great products.

I was contacted about trying Quaker's newest Oat Snack granola bar - Trail Mix. As I've said before, I love granola bars and when given the chance to try a new one I'll generally say yes. Their new Trail Mix bar is a chewy, sweet and salty bar. Great for an afternoon snack - which is my favorite time to enjoy a granola bar. Just enough to hold me over until I get home and get dinner started. A nice bonus of this line of granola bars is that they contain 10 whole grains and they are all natural. Check out their full line HERE.

Now, for the fun stuff! I'm having my first ever GIVEAWAY here at Family, Friends and Food! I'm very excited to share an "All Natural Gift Bag" that has 3 boxes of Quaker's Simple Harvest Trial Mix Bars, 1 very cozy bathrobe and slippers that are all natural and eco-friendly.


From Family, Friends and Food

Now, you may be asking yourself - "How do I win?" Well, it's quite simple. Leave a comment on this post by Sunday, March 22nd telling me you favorite healthy snack. I'll then use a random number generator to choose a winner. I'll announce the winner by Tuesday, March 24th.

Editing to add: Make sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win, blog address or email address.

I dont know about healthy but my favorite low cal snack is the 70 calorie cups of sugar free rice pudding with a little fresh nutmeg grated on top. It sure helps me with my snack attacks!!!

Melynda said...

I must say, I surrender to the first thing available! When starving, it is a big spoon of peanut butter.

I love granola bars for snacks--or other kids of "bars." Lately they have been on sale. With four kiddos, bars are easy and mobile!

Thanks!

Sandy Smith said...

Hey, great giveaway!!

My favorite healthy snack . . . tough to pick just one! Any kind of roasted vegetable, oven-dried tomatoes, frozen raspberries, graham crackers. Yum!

Deb S., JerseyBites.com said...

My favorite snacks are usually not healthy, but when I'm being good almonds and raisins always do the trick for me. Thanks for the great giveaway, Mamma needs a new pair of slippers. ;)

Joe Maida said...

I usually grab a banana when I'm in the mood for something sweet and also filling -- helps ward off hunger between meals. Also, I'll sometimes munch on mixed nuts (cashews, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, etc.) which are very good for you and healthy, too, when eaten in moderation!
