Cereal Monster & a Giveaway

Once in college on the first day of classes, a professor pulled the “ice breaker” card.  You know, that dreaded “go-around-the-room-and-tell-something-interesting-about-yourself” game.  Only this time, he made it more specific: what is your favorite food? OK, I could handle this.  When it was my turn, I confidently answered “cereal,” and by the look on everyone’s faces, it was unexpected and apparently unheard of.  If that doesn’t convince you, while all my college roommates would come home from a night out on the town and gorge on pizza, I could always be found with a big bowl of cereal in my lap.  True story.  Still is.

I still stand by that today.  Even though my taste buds may have matured, and I like a lot of food, I LOVE cereal.  I would have it for every meal if I could (and if they made a flavor that included vegetables…never mind I take that back.) Sooo can you imagine the smile on my face when this package came for me today (!!!):

About a month ago, the awesome team at Cascadian Farm saw their cereal featured on my blog (shocker) and offered to send me a care package.  Free cereal?!  That’s even better!

  • Ancient Grains Granola
  • Oats N Honey Granola
  • Two kinds of chewy snack bars: Chocolate Chip and Peanut Pretzel
  • Water Bottle
  • T-shirt
  • Canvas shopping bag (needed!)

I am so excited to be receiving such a treat, that I want to share the love!

That’s right…I’m going to give away (so you can feel the “free cereal joy” for yourself) the box of Oats N Honey Granola, and the two boxes of chewy snack bars.

***How To Win***

All you have to do is comment on this post…easy!  And if you want to double your chances, mention this giveaway on your blog, and leave a comment here about that as well.

Let’s just say it didn’t take long for me to rip into the other box:

Pre-barre snack of the Ancient Grains granola, mixed with some roasted soybeans for a protein punch, and a peach.

The giveaway will be open until Sunday night.  Good luck!
