Basket of Indulgence, Week 3

How fun is that?

Lucky little me was so excited to receive this in the mail two weeks ago. Lucky family members of mine were thrilled to get to share those Chex Mix bars with me too! I have had the pleasure of being asked to be a part of MyBlogSpark which basically means I get to try fun things like this and then offer a few of you the same opportunity. Not bad, eh? Not only is there a full box of Chex Mix bars in there, but there is also a nail brush, loofah sponge, massager, caramel scented lotion, and three chocolate scented candles.

I am very upfront about the fact that I make just about any kind of treat or baked good from scratch in this house. I make granola bars. I bake our bread. Yada yada yada. But I'm also not "above" packaged treats. And when I read the description of these Turtle Chex Mix bars --"These new snacks combine crunchy Chex pieces, pretzels and peanuts with chewy and indulgent ingredients like caramel and chocolate. And if that´s not enough, they have less than 150 calories per bar and provide at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving (48 grams recommended daily)!"-- there was little doubt in my mind that we would all like them. And we did. I have since purchased a second box of Chex Mix bars using. They're super handy to keep in the diaper bag for a quick snack for the kids or a last-ditch breakfast for a mommy who rushed out the door too fast!

I am delighted to be able to offer one of these baskets to THREE of my readers. The first basket was won last night by Bethany. Congrats! I still have one more to give away!  The entry period will run from 6:00 AM Wednesday morning until 6:00 PM Eastern Time on Tuesday.

Are you a sweet or salty snacker? (for the record, I'm one of those combo people, e.g. I adore chocolate covered pretzels...)

Oh man, I love all snacks! I would probably have to say though that I like the sweets a bit better... I have a sweet tooth. :)

For snackin' I like snacks that are more on the salty side.

Kathleen said...

I'm definitely the salt tooth in the family, while my husband is the sweet one (and also a cereal tooth, if there is such a thing). Like you, I also enjoy the sweet/salty combo, like chocolate covered pretzels.

I like both sweet and salty. Depends on my mood. Cheese and bread. Oh yeah. Chocolate and bread. Oh yeah.

THe turtle chex mix in the bag is really good. It combines sweet and salty.
