Granola Bar Giveaway

Combining healthy foods, quick foods and buying in bulk at Costco can be a bit tricky at times. I like to keep granola bars on hand for times when a homemade snack is just not going to happen or we need to grab something and go. Living in Alaska I also keep them in my truck as emergency food in case we hit the ditch and are stuck for a bit, but don't tell my kids! Having 3 boys, oh yes even though my teenage son has moved out he still comes over to eat, I need to keep stocked up. Combine all those factors and I come up with Nature Valley Granola bars.

My criteria again:
  • healthy-made with real ingredients
  • quick-ready to go when I might not be
  • bulk-I have 3 boys, one 17 year old who comes with friends attached at the hip
 When MyBlogSpark asked me if I wanted to check out their granola bars, even though I knew we were already fans, I said YES! Moms of 3 boys never turn down free food. My only wish is that these granola bars were made with organic ingredients!

We got our package the other day. Getting a package at our house is a banner day. Of course companies working with MyBlogSpark never fail to put together a great package, Nature Valley provided an awesome box o' goodies. Not only granola bars but a backpack, compass, flashlight, water bottle (BPA free!) and book, A Thousand Places to See Before You Die were in the package too. Check it out:


Why, did I hear you ask why? Well to help spread the word that for every wrapper sent in Nature Valley will donate 10 cents, up to 600,000 dollars, to The National Parks Project and they will recycle the wrapper. This year the National Parks Project will be focusing on the Grand Canyon, Biscayne and Yellowstone National Parks, to help restore the parks after years of under funding.

  8. I've driven through Denali in a January snow storm. It was so cold that ice formed INSIDE my windows and the car kept stalling from the fuel filter freezing up.
