This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Felicia!
MyBlogSpark recently sent me this a “Snack Pack” prize pack featuring the new Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters to review. My kids were super excited to open the package we got in the mail. All three kids are too young to eat the nut-filled clusters, but they loved the bag, binoculars, cool self-charging LED (I think) flashlight, and stainless steel water bottle.
Nature Valley granola bars were the only granola bars my health-conscious mom let me eat as a teen. I overdosed on them just a little, and therefore hadn’t eaten any Nature Valley products until this review. I really like the size of these nut clusters. They are big enough that you can eat just one and feel like you ate something and small enough that you can eat more than one if you want (suggested serving size is about 7 clusters). I find them a bit too crunchy for my taste, but the crunchiness does encourage you to drink water, and that is probably a good thing. I’m not much of a peanut fan and usually avoid products with peanuts, so I was surprised to discover that I preferred the Nut Lovers and Honey Roasted Peanut flavors over the lower-peanut-content Roasted Almond and Roasted Cashew varieties. These are definitely something I would consider bringing along as snacks for a hike, but not something I see myself eating on a daily basis.
MyBlogSpark is offering is offering a “Snack Pack” prize pack identical to the one above for one of my readers (sorry, but you have must live in the U.S. or Canada to qualify). To enter, just leave a comment here telling me your favorite thing about the great outdoors. You can get an extra entry if you leave a second comment telling me the most challenging/fun/exciting hike you’ve ever been on (I’ll tell you my choice when I announce the giveaway winner).
This giveaway ends at 9pm US Eastern Time this Friday (10/9/09), and the winner will be chosen using random.org.
