# CLOSED Product Review #9 Giveaway 2 Dozen Chocolate Candies From Cookies 'N Cream Bakery! US 7/20/10






Product Review & Giveaway For Lovin Cookies 'n Cream Bakery!

Giveaway is thru 7/20/10 US!



I had the honor of tasting some homebaked goodies
from the Lovin Cookies 'N Cream Bakery-Etsy Shop!
The treats arrived yesterday and they didn't make it long enough
for a picture to be taken! They were such adorable
little treats I hated to eat them but we did anyway!

Etsy Cookies"n Cream


She sent me 3 products to sample:

1.chocolate rice crunchies candies
2.2 sugar cookies shaped like decorated ice cream
cones! (shown in the picture)

The items were well packaged inside a bubble mailer
which was thick and cushioned.
She carefully enclosed the piece of candy in it's own
decorative case with a black base and a clear top so
you could see how cute it was before devouring it. It
tasted really good lightly sweet, not overpowering with
just the right amount of rice krispies crunchy
goodness! I believe it was dark chocolate which I'm
not usually a big fan of (I like milk chocolate0, but
it was very tasty!

Etsy Cookies"n Cream


The ice cream cone shaped cookies were truly beautiful!
They both were decorated to the hilt! I'm talking colors and
sprinkles galore! The cone had the little crisscross
patterns and was just the right color of an ice cream
cone and the buttercream frosting piped on in all
different colors was extremely good eats!

It had orange and blue decorated toppings with sprinkles
all over the place. At first look you'd think this
was not something you could even eat! My son and I had
a blast eating these 2 cookies! They were nice and thick
about 1/2 I think each. The taste was very good for
the cookie base too, had a slight lemon and vanilla
taste I love. We could have ate a dozen of these
cookies that's how good they were!

I also loved the way she packaged the cookies! Once
you open up the envelope which came first class mail
you found a red gingham check paper wraping tied with
a pretty pink/green ribbon. Very cute! Also the cookies
were double wrapped in clear cellophane food quality
bags which I always appreciate.

Etsy Cookies'n Cream


If you are wanting to try out some new tasty sweets you
should check out her shop! The piece of chocolate candy
she sent was sugar free but it tasted so good you'd
never know it! I like that when there's no nasty after
taste to a sugar free product.



Lovin Cookies 'n Cream Bakery/Etsy shop
her Chocolates sell for $5.00 dozen and the pieces
are large probably 3-4" in diameter so she's not
skimpy. The cookies are designer quality cookies
each was about 6" in length and really looked
absolutely gorgeous. She said she can make all
cookies,candies in any shape,style you'd like as
she has hundreds of candy/cookie molds! So if
you have a special party coming up why not order
a box from her? Trust me, you'll be glad you did!

# CLOSED Product Review & Giveaway #8 3 pairs SmartKnit Kids Socks US Thru 7/18/10


Product Review & Giveaway For SmartKnit KIDS Socks!


A couple of weeks ago I received a great sample pack from
a company called SmartKnit Kids! I had requestied
information about their diabetic socks line since as
my readers know I have a lot of trouble finding a pair
of comfortable socks because of foot swelling and pain
due to diabetic neuropathy. They are
located at: SmartKn
it Socks
They carry a huge variety and styles of
scoks and they are not just for kids!


Well this pair of white diabetic socks they sent out
worked perfectly on my sore swollen feet! They don't
have any seams on them anywhere so they are nice
even stretch and fit all over. No annoying seams to
hurt your sore toes! I really have enjoyed wearing this
pair of socks around the house and out and about. I normally
can't keep a pair of socks on my feet for over a couple
of hours as the burning and soreness just worsens with
the constraint of the socks, but these didn't bother me.
I actually wore them a whole 6 hours one day with no problems.
I'll definitely be adding some of these to my
sock drawer soon. They have a variety of colors which
I love my bright colors.

From their website;

"Completely free of seams, these patented socks are
designed to increase athletic performance by helping
to prevent painful skin blisters. Innovative
form-fitting seam-free technology removes all blister
causing seams, ridges, and pressure points. High-tech
CoolMax® fibers wick-away moisture from the feet
ensuring a dry sock environment. The anti-microbial
action helps kill odor and infection causing bacteria."

Now on to some really great news You get to try
a pair out too!


Content: Combination CoolMax® and spandex, machine washable.


For the winner, 3 (Three) Pairs of socks!

they can chose their color and size preference
and we will ship it directly to them US only


They also were sweet enough to send me a pair that said
they were for kids one in black and one in hotpink. I've
tried them both on and they stretched perfectly to
fit my size 9 big feet! Also no seams they were very
comfortable. I highly recommend you give this company
a try and stock up on some great socks for the entire family.

SmartKnit Socks has also agreed to host a Giveaway
for one lucky Diabetic Snacker reader! So if you'd
like to win 3 pairs of their socks just leave a comment
below to win! Winner gets to choose the style and color
of socks you want!


Mandatory Entry (must be done for bonus entries to count)!

Visit my sponsor, SmartKn
it Socks
Tell me something you learned or a product
you want to try! Easy right?

Product Review YumNuts Naturals Cashews & Goodies








Product Review For Delicious YumNuts Natural products!

Use this coupon code to get 25% off any purchase on their
website!
NUTS25 expires 7/31/10

YumNuts Naturals was graciously sent me a couple of sample packs upon my request! The nuts were super fresh, the most freshest nuts I've ever tasted! I thought I was with a street vendor like you see on television they were so fresh!


YumNuts Naturals
They also have a fun, nutty blog you can subscribe to.


Specialty nuts, flavored nuts,plain nuts,cashews,peanuts.... they have a huge selection you really should go check them out! Try some fresh nuts for a change you'll never buy them at the supermarket again.



Sent for product review a sample pack of Cajun dry slow roasted cashews. I adore cashews but had never tried a flavored cashew! Well I was in for a treat! The light background flavor of the cajun spices comes thru perfectly as you eat these nuts. They are not hot & spicy they are just the right amount of seasonings to make you want some more of them! Light and fresh with a hint of spice. I'm glad someone thought of adding spices to nuts because I could get used to this!

The second package they sent was really "going all out" for me as it's;
Chocolate covered dry roast cashews! Wow I think this is my favorite new snack to have around the house all the time. You get the crunchy,salty taste of the cashews and the delicate aroma and taste of chocolate like candy all rolled into one bite! It really is a special combination! I'm not sharing this bag with the rest of the family,ha ha. They are not nut fans of any kind! Yeah, can you believe it? I wonder sometimes how those 2 could even possibly be mine and not like nuts of any kind!

They came in resealable bags which is nice so I can just nibble away at a few at a time and they'll stay fresh as can be. I alos love the fact that they are very crunchy nuts. Nice
and fresh and lightly salted with sea salt which I'd also never tasted but I extremely like. I love salt on nuts it gives it a whole new
dimension of flavor. So I guess chocolate is a good match to sprucc it up another whole notch, and it does! You really need to try both these varieties of nuts but I say at least go for the chocolate if you have to pick just one. I'm so glad they sent me the samples because I would have never tried these two new flavors if they hadn't!


they also have dozens of wonderful recipes on their website. In case you ever have
some extra nuts laying around. I saw some more flavors when I was looking
over their site that's I wish I could have tried!

Toasted Coconut
Honey

both of those would have been great as they are diabetic friendly ingredients1
Guess I'll have to go and buy some Yunnuts now.

I love this quote and facts from their website;

"We don't need artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners to make
our nuts taste great. Nor do we try to change the taste
of our cashews by roasting them in peanut oil. We think that’s
just nuts."

They are located at:

65 East Avenue | 3rd Floor
Norwalk | CT | 06851
203.354.0798

You can order all of their products online isn't that great?





A big thanks out to YumNuts Naturals for my smaples so I could have the pleasure of writing about them. I love it when I get free snacks since I'm trying to control diabetes with food and exercise it helps the family budget a lot! 3 meals a day and 5 snacks a day is a lot of food! So thank you YumNuts!

# CLOSED Giveaway Product Review Glee Gum Chocolate Making Kits! 7/18/10 US









Product Review & Giveaway #7! Glee Gum Starter Kits For Making Chocolate Candies,Gum and Gummies At Home!

Giveaway (bottom half of article) Ends July 18th,2010
Open to continental United States only.

Have you ever wished you could make your own chocolate candies? Well now you can! There is a company that actually makes these darling kits that allows you the fun of making your own chocolate candies! I requested a sample in order to do a product review for you and they sent me a chocolate kit!

It came very quickly and I've made it up now and they are just so adorably cute! This was really the most fun I've had in the kitchen in a long time. Kids would love to do this with you!

Here's what my kit included:

6 packs glee gum

chocolate kit:
certified organic cocoa butter
cocoa powder
powdered sugar
starter crystals
temperature indicator
paper candy liners/cups (so cute)
easy to read instructions!

Really, it was very easy I'm talking simple to make! Who knew you could make your own chocolate, have fun and have it taste better than any candy you've tried at the store before! I absolutely loved making up my pieces of chocolate candies! The kit made 12 larg pieces of candy and it is as easy as making a pan of fudge! You can even use the microwave if you'd like.

Now I know this was not a sugar free product since it had powdered sugar but I did very well with it. I only ate a piece a day so I wouldn't run my blood sugar up so I was proud of myself for that. You could easily swap out the powdered sugar for splenda if you throw it in the food processor and make your own sugar free chocolate candies.

This was very good so I want you to try it so you can come back here and tell me how yes it was easy, yes it did taste good! I'm legally blind so if I can do it, you can do it!

Here's a link to their website where they have a buy one get one free coupon special going on right now!

# CLOSED Product Review Giveaway Food Should Taste Good 2 Winners US Thru 7/15/10








#6 Giveaway & product Review Food Should Taste Good
2 Winners-2 Bags Tortilla Chips Each!





Are you hungry yet? Well you will be so get ready to go buy some tortilla
chips and have them shipped right to your door.

This last week I had the pleasure of trying out some more snack products
on the market. Their name alone is so catchy, I really like it. They are
called "Food Should Taste Good"! Isn't that the most clever name you've ever
heard of for a snack product? Genious, wish I'd thought of it.

Anyway, upon my request the folks over at Food Should Taste Good said
they would be happy to send me a free bag to try to see if I liked them
and write about them on my food blog. Well, I didn't have to wait long
they were here in like 2 days or less I think and I was so amazed at the
size of the box! It was at least 25" x25"! I eagerly opened it up to see
over 12 bags & mini small bags of their famous tortilla chips! Wow! What
a great company to send so many samples, one of every flavor they make!

I'm still going thru them trying each bag as my diabetic snacking times
permit. I'll post here on each flavor as I taste test it for you and I'll
keep adding to this post as I try the other new to me flavors. So stay
tuned for all the flavors you crave to be revealed.

You think I was surprised? You should have
seen my 2 boys when they got home from work! I've told them about my
food blog over the last 2 years but you know how your grown kids are,
they don't listen to you. They were simply astonished that mom had
got this bag of great muchies for free! Of course, they've been
doing their fair share of eating the chips and trying new flavors
too! I really felt a sense of accomplishment knowing I impressed my sons,
believe it's not easy to do once you hit 50!
Food Should Taste Good

Here's the list of the flavors they sent in my goodie box! Really it
should have been Christmas!

multigrain Super extra crunchy I love these! You can clearly taste the
sesame seeds used on them, it gives them an extra crunchy texture.

mini bags 1 oz to go packs snack size multigrain I like munching on these while I go
for my daily walks outside. If you're eating something that
taste good it makes you forget about the time a lot better!

cheddar This one is definitely my sons favorite I liked them too.

corn We had these with a Taco night meal in place of our usual brand
and we all 3 agreed these were much fresher, more crisp and held
up better in the salsa than our normal chips which are a name brand.

lime Surprisingly light flavor on the lime I could eat this I was surprised.


sweet potato This is one of my favorites! It's sweet & salty a combo I've
always been a fan of! Plus they are super healthy for you.

olive This bag is good,very good may be in my top three! Good
overall flavor with a hint of olive oil in them. Lots of
spices, a real winner!

the works Really surprising taste all the spices are well distributed.
I was totally amazed by this one too! Great for watching tv
with since all the flavor you'd want is right there on one
product!

chocolate Wow, these are a delightful surprise! My kids were too
chicken to try them but I gave it a go & I loved them! I'm
kind of glad they won't touch them that's more for mom! I'm
so evil, yes I know! It has a light fudgy chocolate coa
on each and every chip. Every bit makes you want another
bite they are really addictive! I did crumble these up over
my frozen yogurt too (company recommended on their site), love
it even more!

jalepeno My kids didn't like these they are the "hot & spicy" lovers.
They said they are not too hot, spice wise but they thought
they had a slight burned taste which they didn't care for. Oh
well not everyone can hit a homerun every time right?

blue corn The blue corn is really crisp and I love the color of these
chips! These taste great and would be nice for a colorful
plate for whatever meal you are having.
Food Should Taste Good


Some of those flavors really make you look and think about it
don't they? I mean, chocolate tortilla chips? Who would have
thought it possible in a million years?! Let me just say you could tell
these were shipped straight out from the factory because I've never had
such a fresh, crispy tasting tortilla chip in all my life! I love the
bite of salt you get in them too, they make you want to lick your lips
to make sure you get every ounce of it!

So the chips are really good, I've been opening them and tasting
and testing for the last week (really fun) I could do this all
the time!

I'll keep adding to this list as the new to me flavors
dwindle down. I like having extra snacks in the house because when
you're diabetic and you have to eat every 2 & 1/2 hours to keep your
blood sugar levels up by diet and exercise- it takes a lot of snacks!
This helps out the family budget bigtime if the kids aren't always
having to buy mom some more healthy snacks.

All the products at Food Should Taste Good

I do so appreciate Food Should Taste Good being so generous and
sending such an assortment of products to try! Everyone that's come
around this week has wound up trying some of each flavor and everyone
that's tried them has enjoyed them! Ok, I know you're getting tired of
me bragging about my tortilla chips adventure.... so here's the surprise
for you!

Food Shoud Taste Good is very generously giving 2 of my lucky readers= 2 free product coupons each!

Book Review Mind Your Own Mortgage

Product Review Book Mind your own Mortgage

Mind Your Own Mortgage
by Robert J. Bernabé

Publisher Thomas Nelson

The savvy Homeowner's Guide to Selecting the right mortgage
for you. Managing and getting it paid down is one of the
hardest chores a homeowner must face. Doing it
the right way makes all the difference.

Robert J. Bernahe, the author is a pioneer in online
mortgage building techniques.


In his own words;

"Stocked with compelling real-life scenarios, budgeting tips,
and handy financial tools, Mind Your Own Mortgage, is a timely wake-up
call for homeowners and a candid decree that the American dream is still
possible - if we dramatically rethink the way we finance our homes."


My take;

This book is inspiring and will help you save a great deal of
money. He's outlined several ways you can save money including budgeting
ideas for each member of your family.

There are dozens of helpful scenarios in this book that
can help your family save thousands of dollars and not just on
your mortgage! He shows various ways to save money in your
everyday life too. Now who couldn't use a little of that?

He speaks of living within your means something every family
struggles with but he can show you the steps to take to
make it work for you.

I highly recommend anyone that is even thinking of buying
a home in the future read this book! You'll learn things
you had no idea were even possible and you'll save a ton of
money.

This book is 300 pages and each one is chock full
of useful information. You are going to be ahead of
the mortgage game if you read this book.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy to read in order
to form my own opinions about this book. My opinions are my own and no other form of compensation was given.

Button Maker-Blog Makeover Wonder Wacky Jacqui's Designs








Wacky Jacqui's Designs

Product Review of Blogmakeover expert Wacky Jacqui's Designs

Today I want to tell you about a new blogging friend of mine. Another blogger friend emailed me because she knew how badly I've wanted some buttons for my blog! What she had found was a giveaway for some custom buttons to be made for 5 winners! Of course I hurriedly entered the giveaway but then I thought; hmm, why not try the "barter" system that bloggers are always saying is coming back in style. I did & it worked! I am so pleased and thrilled to have found this fellow blogger;
Jacqui has 3 blogs going right now so she's a busy work at home mom with kids and she is married. With all that on her plate though, she was nice enough to make me my buttons on the left sidebar in exchange for a post on my blog! Isn't the barter system great? I kind of feel like I got the best end of the deal so I hope she gets some "business" from this post!
Look at my beautiful buttons! She made me these:
1. Grab my button & code
2. Email me button
3. Pr Welcome button
Aren't they just gorgeous!? I am so proud of them!
She kept the design of my new custom header I had won so I love them as they all match! It makes me feel like I have a truly nice blog now! It's more stylish and useful to everyone. It also gives my readers more bonus entry ways to enter giveaways!
I have a lot of giveaways coming up so keep coming back and entering them all. I have about 10 on the books that I'm trying to get time to post! I wanted though to get this post up first.

Cooking For Little Fingers

This one is so cute! Cooking for little fingers is all about helping kids learn to cook with you in the kitchen. Isn't that so sweet? I'm glad I taught my kids in the kitchen when they were very small as now my oldest is doing most of the family meals around here! He's 31 and he's a great cook and it all started when he was about 2 working in their with me.
It is so nice to meet someone nice and have them help you out just by asking! I think the internet is just a wonderful thing! I'm trying to overlook the fact that I'm in the middle of a plumbing disaster this week (next post). So thanks so much Jacqui! Please everyone go visit her site and see if you don't need some buttons here's her very reasonable price list. While you're there leave her some comment love tell them barb sent ya!

# CLOSED Product Review US GIVEAWAY Avitae Caffeinated Water! Thru 7/08/10


Product Review & Giveaway
For: AVITAE WATER!!



Avitae Caffeinated Water Product Review & Giveaway! Thru 7/8/2010

Avitae caffeinated water sounds like a simple name doesn't it? Well it's
anything but simple. It's a very nice thirst quencher to have around
the house. It gives your body that extra little lift you need sometimes
just to make it thru your workout or your busy day. Avitae is not an energy
drink but it does containe caffeine to give you a boost when you need it
most. Everyone should go to their website and watch the video they have it is so informative! It actually shows what 10 pounds of fat looks like which is what you get when you drink just one can of regular soda for one year=10 POUNDS!!

Before I was diabetic I drank 2 pepsi's everyday of my life for about 40 of my ears so I guess now I know why I am 50 pounds heavier than I need to be. My doctor also told me that my soda drinking lifetime habit was the reason I am a diabetic today!


You can find Avitae Water on twitter & facebook now too!
.
@avitae45
facebook.com/avitae

Avitae Water

Avitae water is widely available right now, I know my kroger Stores here
in Indiana
carry it as I've seen it on display. I always thought it made me thristy
to look at it while I was passing by. They have a handy little tool on
their website called "Buy Me" and you just put your zipcode in and they'll
tell you exactly which stores you can find it in, it's super easy to use.

The NYC Department of Health made an outstanding video all about Avitae
water which I know you'll enjoy so go to their website and watch it!
Avitae water is a smart choice for man and women who cares about what
they are putting into their bodies everyday. We all need to drink water,
not just me because I'm diabetic-All of us-Yes that means you too! We are
a society of soda drinkers and we've got to make that change to a healthier
beverage product so why not Avitae? Sure I've sacrificed my beloved Pepsi's
and now drink Diet Pepsi but give a girl a break sometimes you just
have to reach for the healthier choice available to you-WATER!

Water is so good for us all it's a shame we do not drink the needed
amounts for our bodies. Doctors say drink 8 glasses of water a day.
I know I have a problem doing that myself but if I could have some
water like Avitae with a bit of caffeine in it to give me that boost,
it will in turn make me drink more water!

Yesterday it came in very handy as our pipes under the bathroom
have burst and we've had plumbers out digging thru
the concrete slab trying to find the leak and fix
the pipes! I was so glad to have Avitae water to drink!
It quenced my thirst and gave me that little lift I
needed. It's hard being without household water for 2
days and counting now! I hope today the 3rd day is
going to be the end of this disaster! So my Avitae
water couldn't have arrived at a better time!

The amount of caffeine in Avitae Caffeinated Water is only 45mg which is
about like a half can of diet soda or half of what's in a cup of coffeee.
So it's not going to keep you up all night it's just going to give
you that little boost your body needs to keep moving and get the
job done right.

Avitae Water is completely refreshing in taste and flavor! There's
absolutely only 2 ingredients inside:

Purified Water
Natural Caffeine

Here's some helpful facts about caffeine that the sponsor pointed out
to me:

See, it's actually good for you to drink your water like the doctor's been
telling you for years! There's no artificial flavors or colors in it
either it's pure clean refreshment that you will enjoy.
I must be honest I like this water though I did find a slight aftertaste with it.

rReduced risk of multiple types of cancer
children with ADHD
reduced chances of Parkinson’s
reduced chances of heart disease
this one I found shocking myself; the ability to slow and even
potentially reverse Alzheimer’s! That's good to know since my doctor
has diagnosed me with early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

I'm not sure of the link to diabetes and caffeine yet but I know it's
beginning to be studied a lot. I think they'll find it helps diabetes
instead of hindering it once all the tests are finished. Like cinnamon,
my favorite spice on the planet it also good for diabetes-who Knew?!

Sugary rich sodas have got to go from everyone's diet. I'm glad they are
finally taking steps to remove them from Schools all across america. It's
a big step but it needs to be done. I know I cried when i became diabetic
and was forced to give up my sugary sodas but I am so grateful every day
that I can still have my little burst of caffeine from my diet soda. Now,
it's even better I can also have one of these Avitae Waters everyday to
give myself that extra burst of caffeine I need.

I do a lot of walking now for maintaining my exercise so water has
become a much bigger part of my everyday life. I'm so glad that Avitae
was kind enough to send me a sample 4 pack case! I do love the water
so they are absolutely right about that! So you know what happens when
you love something right? You drink more of it!

Avitae has generously provied some online coupon codes for Diabetic
Snacker readers to use! They are also hosting a giveaway for me to
give one lucky reader a 4 pack case of great tasting Avitae Water!
so now, onto the Giveaway!

“We are thrilled to invite our passionate baking consumers to share this experience with Duncan Hines,” says Lora Van Velsor, vice president of Marketing for Pinnacle’s Duncan Hines Food division. “Duncan Hines was a real person who stood for superior quality and today we still celebrate Duncan Hines’ inventive spirit through innovative programs like the “Duncan Hines® Red Carpet Cupcake Challenge” and sponsorships like the 62nd Primetime Emmy® Awards and Governors Ball,” continues Van Velsor.
Before Fodor's and Zagat, there was Hines. At a time when there was no such thing as restaurant critics and ratings, Duncan was onto something new. Four little words would come to have significant importance to restaurants all across the country: "Recommended by Duncan Hines."

Duncan spent years discovering new trends in food and sharing them with his expanded following of “foodies.” His reputation for honesty and reliability were two of the most important ingredients in his recipe for success. These qualities lead to what Duncan Hines stands for today. Today, the Duncan Hines brand still celebrates the man’s inventive spirit through a relentless commitment to quality and innovation.

Product Review True Lemon,Lime and Orange Flavors

CafePress Giveaway HERE




Product Review True Lemon,Orange and Lime Products







I was sent on my request a few samples of products from The True Lemon
company. I recieved true lemon, true lime and true orange flavors which
I had not been able to find in my stores here in Indianapolis. Yes we are
a slow town sometimes when it comes to getting new products in to try!

The true lemon I already knew I loved because I use it all the time to make
sugar free crystal light lemonade taste even better. It adds a touch of lemon
flavor like it's been fresh picked and squeezed right into the glass.
I've also now used it in baking and I must say those Lemom Mufins I made
with it were the best mufins I've ever made! They were sugar free made
with splenda and I added true lemon to them and it really made them Pop! in
your mouth. It was a refreshing treat.

So I thought since that worked out so well I might try it in some Orange
muffins the next week and I did and they were even better than the Lemom if
that's possible because they were pretty darn good. My whole family liked
the orange muffins so I'll be making these again soon.

The True Lime I'm not such a big fan of but I think that's just me. I just
don't like too many lime flavored products. I think it stems from a childhood
thing where I hated lime jello and it was the only kind school ever
served! So I'm sure this is a great product it's just not what I particularly
love. Maybe I'll sweeten it up a bit more and trick myself into tasting
it again.

With the True Lemon and the True Orange choices around that's all I'd need
anyway for all my recipes. Their website has a ton of recipes on it you
should go look around. It's at: True
Lemon
I bet you'll find something sweet you want to try it in.

I'd like to thank the folks at True Lemom for sending me this generous
sample pack to try. I'm having a lot of fun trying them all out and I'm
not thru baking yet! I'll let you know on this post when I make
something else.

The Kroger Company's Family of Stores, General Mills,

free.

Thru June 30th 2010 for every pound you pledge to lose

Americans around the world! 14 cents per pound can add
up really quickly so you'll be helping a lot of people. That
small 14 cents is enough to donate 1 whole pound of food
to a local food bank!

I watch every episode of The Biggest Loser myself to get
helpful motivational tips, diet tips, healthy eating tips
every week. General Mills does a great job of getting their
products out there on the television for us to see hey, if
that's what they're eating I can do that! I personally
have started eating Cheerios by General Mills just from
watching it on The Biggest Loser! Now, it's my favorite cereal
not just because it's whole grain but because it taste
delicious! I put a teaspoon of splenda sweetener on mine and it's
like the best breakfast you could ever want! The Multigrain

which I love. If you haven't given Cheerios a try in awhile
you should really pick up a box or two you'll see you've
