Yoplait Kids Review/Giveaways

I received information about Yoplait Kids and a fantastic prize pack from
MyBlogSpark to review. Enclosed in the package was a coupon* for any of the Yoplait Kids yogurt products along with a Yoplait Less Sugar, More Fun prize pack. Perfect for accompanying this fun afternoon snack, the Yoplait Less Sugar, More Fun prize pack includes coupon for a Yoplait Kids yogurt, a travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go), a fun spoon that changes colors in warm water, a reusable place mat with games to keep the kids happy while snacking, and a fuzzy tangle puzzle for some after-snack fun.

(*This coupon offer for a free six pack of Yoplait Kids yogurt is not valid in some states, including Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee.)

One of my kids favorite snacks happens to be yogurt. They could live on it if they had to. Seriously. They can't get enough of the stuff. Which is a good thing, because yogurt has many health benefits. My favorite way to enjoy yogurt is frozen. I do my best to limit the amount of sugar that my kids are allowed to have. Halloween can be a tricky time for watching sugar intake. What better time to have this review and giveaway for Yoplait kids yogurt. Yoplait Kids yogurt is the perfect solution for me because it has 25% less sugar than the leading kids´ yogurt. It's a good source of vitamin D and, according to two new studies that provide the first national assessment of the crucial nutrient in young Americans, millions of U.S. children have disturbingly low vitamin D levels, possibly increasing their risk for a variety of health concerns, including bone problems. About 7.6 million children, adolescents, and young adults have vitamin D levels so low they could be considered deficient. It can be challenging for growing kids to get enough vitamin D because this nutrient is only found naturally in very few foods; however Yoplait Kids makes it a little easier to incorporate a delicious source of vitamin D and calcium in your child´s diet.
Which I am very impressed with and thankful for. I love Yoplait yogurt and I am sure your family will too.

Burt's Bees® Natural Acne Solutions™

BzzCampaigns are word-of-mouth programs for products worth talking about. They're a fun way to take word of mouth to another level — word of mouth squared, or something. Anyway, BzzCampaigns give you the opportunity to:

  • Try new products
  • Talk about them
  • Influence the companies who make them

I joined a campaign for Burt's Bee's Natural Acne Solutions. I already loved Burt's Bee's lip balm before I tried these products. This is one Acne solution that I love, it has changed my skins appearance. I am not one of those make-up. Glam. Diva. Kind-of-Girls. I am not really into all that stuff. The only make-up I ever use is Mascara, and lip gloss. Good for you if you are! But this is one beauty product that I definitely love and recommend. I love natural products. The scent is very soothing, not overpowering like the kind with tons of weird chemicals. Some of the ingredients that are in these products are:
  • Lemongrass Extract

  • Evening Primrose Extract

  • Willow Bark Extract

If you are looking for a great natural Acne Solution for your teenager.
or yourself. This is one product worth using!

Join BzzCampaigns to try everything from food to cleaning products to cosmetics (the food tastes the best).

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters REVIEW/GIVEAWAYS


MyBlogSpark sent me their new- Nature Valley Granola
Nut Clusters to review as well as a prize pack to enjoy.

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters come in four easy-to-crave flavors: Nut Lovers, Roasted Almond, Roasted Cashew and Honey Roasted Peanut.

This is definitely a new family favorite snack! I love the combination of Granola, Nuts and Honey. I also didn't have to feel worried about my kids eating these snacks. I plan on purchasing these in the future as a family snack or on the go, they are perfect especially because they are resealable. The only problem with these is that my family loved them so much that they were gone in less than 48 hours! ;)

One flavor I would love them to come out with is a Roasted Cinnamon Almond flavor.

Thanks to MyBlog Spark I very happy to announce that My Blog Spark is sponsoring a give away of ONE Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters "Snack Pack" prize for one of my lucky readers to enjoy!


Granola Nut Clusters "Snack Pack" prize pack that includes all four (4) varieties of the Granola Nut Clusters along with a sling backpack, stainless steel water bottle, flashlight and binoculars!


Please answer this question in the comments which counts as your initial entry:

Which of the four snack varieties do you think you would like?
