Snackers Unite!

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on January 25, 2009

For those of you who know me, you know that I am a snacker. In fact, my good friends, when they come to visit, head straight for my pantry and know they can help themselves to whatever they can fine – which is most typically just about anything!

Salty snacks, sweets, and dried fruit can be found just about any time you look. And a birthday party at the Young’s house is just not complete without a few strategically placed bowls of Muddy Buddies!

Well, I am excited about the prospect of adding Chex Mix Bars to my pantry shelf. These new snacks combine crunchy Chex pieces, pretzels and peanuts with chewy and indulgent ingredients like caramel and chocolate – Sounds like the perfect combination of sweet and salty, doesn’t it? And if that´s not enough, they have less than 150 calories per bar and provide at least 8 of the 48 grams of the daily recommended whole grain!

Guess what? Three of you will be treated to a “Baskets of Indulgence,” complete with a box of tasty Turtle Chex Mix Bars to sample, chocolate candles, caramel lotion, and spa essentials (including a a loofah, hand massager, nail brush and spa towel)!

There is nothing better than grabbing a good book and a good, chocolatey snack, and lounging in a hot bubble bath…. A mom can dream, can’t she?

chexThere are lots of ways for the snacker to enter. Here’s what you need to do:
.

  • Leave me a comment on this post, by 9pm on February 1st, telling me about your favorite snack.

  • For additional entries feel free to grab my button and place it on your sidebar, send a tweet, or leave the link to this giveaway on your Facebook page. Be sure to leave me a separate comment with a link to your blog, tweet or Facebook page.

  • You may also subscribe to my blog feed for yet another entry, and leave me a comment saying you did so. You must remain a subscriber during the entire duration of this giveaway.

My favorite snack depends on my hormones. – Sometimes it’s chocolate – chocolate covered anything will do. – The rest of the time – I lean towards the salty. Peanut butter and jalepenos on toast is really good (you have to try it to understand) and so are tomatoes on toast. (salted of course)

Baked Apple snack’s my latest rave:
Chopped, in a bowl, in the microwave.
I add cinnamon, a nice big shake.
Then put it in for a 5 minute bake.

Hot, with a spoon—
It’s mine, ALL MINE!
(And, the cinnamon’s made
my house smell fine!)

Wow!! Six kids?!?! How do you do it??? We definitely don’t have that in common…hahaha…although I would LOVE the challenge – children are such blessings – and yours are beautiful!! After reading more about you, one thing I see we have in common is knowing that God has big plans for our lives. Currently my husband has been away for over a year (military) and I find myself asking why…especially with our three year old missing him terribly…but I am able to get up each morning knowing that fact – that everything is for a reason and God has a plan for our lives. Many blessings!
