Several months ago, when I had the chance to give away three Baskets of Indulgence, interest was very high! I'm excited to be able to give three more readers the chance to win something yummy and indulgent!
Looks fun, doesn't it?
The lovely people at My BlogSpark recently sent me a Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy Bars Spa Break gift basket. I am truly like a little kid when I receive these things- I was so excited to open it! Included was: a sample of the new snack bars, a bath pillow, chocolate scented soap, lotion, bath salts, and a coffee scented candle.
I've never had a bath pillow before so that was a treat indeed for this pregnant lady! And may I add that I really don't like bath products that are supposed to smell like food? They never actually do, in my opinion. That being said, this lotion smells exactly like some rich, yummy chocolate treat and I'm half tempted to sniff myself all day long when I'm wearing it- it smells THAT good. People standing behind me in lines have commented how they suddenly feel hungry. Hmm... :)
As far as the Fiber One bars go, both my 4-year old son and I really enjoyed them. We had tried other varieties of the Fiber One bars before and thought they were tasty snacks. This variety has a definite coffee flavor to it which delighted coffee-loving me! I have to admit I was surprised that my preschooler took to the flavor so much, but he gobbled it right down!
Here are a few fiber facts shared with me by the folks at My BlogSpark:
New Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy Bars combine a rich chocolate taste and smooth coffee flavor with the benefits of fiber in one delicious snack. Each great tasting, chewy bar provides 35% of therecommended daily fiber intakeand also is a good source of calcium.
