Coffee Break, Anyone?

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 the recommended daily fiber intake and also is a good source of calcium.
  • Fiber can help you satisfy your appetite and manage your weight
  • Research suggests that people who have high fiber intakes tend to have healthier body weights
  • Fiber can help keep your digestive system on track
  • 9 out of 10 Americans aren’t getting the recommended amount of fiber

Do you want to know if you are getting enough fiber? Check out the Fiber-O-Meter . Fiber One is now offering a $1.35 off downloadable coupon for one box of Fiber One Chewy Bars . (Some of you frugal people will already have printed this coupon, but it's worth checking out to be sure!)

***********************************************************************************
Would you like a chance to win one of your own? Just leave a comment below answering this question:

Have you tried any of the Fiber One products before? If so, what's your favorite? (Our favorite is the Key Lime Fiber One yogurt!)

I'll draw my first winner Sunday evening, March 29th announce the winning name on Monday, March 30th.

I've never had the yogurt--but I love the fiber One bars. I don't know that I have ever had one that we didn't like. Didn't know there was a such thing as a Fiber-O-Meter--thanks!

And thanks for offering the giveaway!

I haven't tried them personally but I got a good deal on them at Target. Surprisingly enough, my 10 yo son was crazy about the fiber bars!

I am desperately trying to find the Fiber One Pancake Mix!!! I want to make Waffles with Peaches for my Hubby! We live in GA! I think he would love a High Fiber Fruity Waffle (Well, I would love for him to have one!) What could be BETTER on a Saturday Morning!!!??
