Okay, I have to confess. I'm scared that nobody is going to enter my first ever blog giveaway. That has made me really hesitant to post anything. But here goes!
Yoplait provided me with two free cups of their new Greek Yogurt, and a spa gift pack through MyBlogSpark. It was totally up to me as to whether or not to blog about it, but I do have the chance to offer one of you the chance to win a similar pack.
Here's what I got:
Doesn't that look fabulous? Trina absconded with most of the bath stuff, but I did manage to snag the slippers. And, of course, the yogurt coupons. (okay, so I let Trina have the bath stuff... anything that encourages her to actually scrub in the tub instead of just soaking, yeah, I'm all for it.)
I had a hard time finding Yoplait Greek Yogurt in the store the first time I went shopping. But a few days later, every grocery store I entered had them. I chose to try Blueberry and Strawberry. Then, with the coupon from here and another from the paper, I was able to pick up a couple more for $.10-$.40 (on sale for a dollar, at a store that doubles coupons). So I got another Blueberry, and a Honey Vanilla.
So what did I think? First off, I love the idea of more protein. And I love the idea of 0% fat. One reason I don't eat yogurt frequently is that I try to have a more balanced ration of protein to carbs... the three flavors I tried contained 12 g protein and 19 g carbs. Far better than the last Yoplait Original we had (7.2 g protein and 24.2 g carbs).
But how did it taste? Well, it is different than that Yoplait Original. Not as sweet, more of a yogurt taste. And it has, I don't know how to describe it, it has a grainier feel to it. And thicker too.
Okay, so now the fun part for all of you! Yoplait and MyBlogSpark would like to give away a similar pack of stuff to one of my readers. To enter the giveaway, you must leave a comment on this blog post telling me which flavor you would get with your coupons. (I didn't try Plain -- otherwise, I talked about the rest!).
For a bonus entry, if you follow my blog publicly, leave another comment telling me that you already were a follower, or that you just became one.
For another entry, post about this giveaway somewhere (your blog, Facebook, or something similar) and leave another comment telling me what you did (and please, link your blog so I can come visit you!)
Deadline for entries is Monday, May 3 at midnight Mountain Time. I will draw a winner and notify them by email (if your email is included) or on this blog on May 4. If I do not hear back from the winner within 48 hours, I will draw a new name.
