Trix Swirls Review and Gift Basket Giveaway!!!




***********THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED************

We are HUGE cereal eaters in this household. We all love cereal, even the healthy stuff. I'll even admit that 3 or 4 times a month we have cereal night, where we eat cereal and fruit for supper. So I was thrilled when I was contacted by MyBlogSpark to test out the new Trix Swirls.

The Swirls are a limited edition of Trix, that has "2 FRUITY colors in every puff!" There's Berry Berry Blue, Rasporangey Orange and Lemony Green, and yep, they're as delicious as they sound. Now I have to say, that I do limit our cereal intake to the healthier varieties, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that the Trix Swirls has only the same amount of sugar as one of our favorites, Frosted Mini Wheats. Besides also having General Mills' Whole Grain Guarantee, one serving contains 25% of the daily recommendations of Calcium and Vitamin D. The fiber isn't really that great at only 1 g, so I'd definitely pair it with some fruit, but all in all, not too shabby!

Now, for the giveaway!!!


MyBlogSpark has generously offered to give away not one, but TWO, Trix Swirls Creative Kids Gift Baskets! The gift basket includes:

1. Coupon for FREE Trix Swirls
2. Colorful Apron
3. Watercolor Pencils
4. Watercolor Paints
5. Extra Brushes
6. Art Supply Box
7. Sketchbook

To Enter: (must be done for other entries to count)

1. In a comment, tell me what flavors your kids would like to see swirled.

Extra Entries:

2. Put my button (on right sidebar) in your blog roll or somewhere on the main page of your website. Let me know in a comment that you did so, and leave the URL so that I can check.

3. Subscribe by email or RSS, and leave a comment letting me know that you've done so. If you already subscribe, just leave a comment letting me know.

4. Follow my blog, on Blogger, and leave a comment.

5. Follow me on Twitter, and tweet this giveaway. Leave the URL of your tweet in a comment.

6. Blog about this giveaway and leave me the URL so that I can check it.

7. Promote this giveaway in any way (email, technorati, digg, etc.) and leave a comment telling me how you've done so.

This contest will end on Wednesday, July 29, at midnight, EST. The winners will be chosen by randomizer.org, and I will email them. They will have 2 days to contact me back with their info or a new winner will be chosen.

Good luck, everyone!!!
