Convenience Stores Sweet and Salty Snacks Review and Giveaway

With three kids and lots of extracurricular activities, we find ourselves snacking a lot whether on the go or waiting for the kids... or just because :) I was super excited to when MyBlogSpark and General Mills offered us to review new snacks that recently became exclusively available at convenience stores nationwide.
We received a box filled with the following goodies:
  • Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate: An indulgent cereal bar that combines the great taste of Cocoa Puffs cereal and chocolate into one decadent treat, Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate is perfect for satisfying any sweet tooth.
  • Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars: If you want the best of both worlds, give Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars a try. These bars mix dark chocolate pieces, oats and crisp rice nuggets for a classic crunch and burst of whole grain goodness, making them a perfect natural snack that’s high in fiber and protein, but low in saturated fat.
  • Bugles Hot Buffalo: Need something salty with a bit of a kick? Look no further than Bugles Hot Buffalo Crisp Corn Snacks, which blends the taste of hot buffalo sauce with crispy corn Bugles.
While the hot stuff - Bugles Hot Buffalo - was too hot for my taste (and I didn't offer them to kids), my hubby loved every bit of them. Chocolate stuff was for the ladies in the house and Cocoa Puffs treats quickly became Victoria's and Nicole's favorite. I was lucky enough to snatch one of the Nature Valley oats and dark chocolate bars to work and it made a prefect mid-afternoon snack: wholesome, delicious, filling and giving the energy to get through the rest of the day :)

To celebrate the appearance of these new products in convenience stores all over the country, MyBlogSpark and General Mills are giving away a prize package to one of my readers. Here's what you'll get if you are the lucky winner (thanks to Crystal R. for the picture):

All you need to do is leave me a comment with your favorite snack. For an extra entry, blog or tweet about this giveaway and leave a separate comment with the link.

The giveaway is open until Wednesday, May 26th.

Thank you and good luck!

If I am trying to be healthy then I'll have some nuts or a handful of Wheat Thins or something, but my favorite snack is either Chips and Guac or a Chocolate Chip Cookie still warm from the oven.
