General Mills and MyBlogSpark Sweet and Salty Snack Review and Giveaway (ends 5/23)

Thanks to My Blog Spark and GeneralMills because they provided me with the yummo general mills snacks, the information, and awesome prize pack to giveaway to my readers!

My family and I love receiving packages from myBlogspark, especially when there are enough treats to go around!

And boy was the box they sent me this time loaded!

You would have thought it was Christmas! We received 2 bags of Buffalo Bugles, 2 Cocoa puff chocolate bars, and 2 granola oat and dark chocolate bars.

We all sat around sampling the goodies and sharing our thoughts about them, well correction, my husband and daughter picked the ones they loved best and wouldn't share the rest!

I did however get to keep the granola bars.....LOL

I got a taste of both the bugle chips and the cocoa puff bar and both were a lil extreme to me, but I don't like stuff with too much of a kick (the hot buffalo chips) or anything too sweet ( the cocoa puff chocolate bar).

My husband loved his chips though, and my daughter who eats cocoa puff cereal for breakfast LOVED the chocolate bars.

It all worked out in the end really because I enjoyed the granola oat and dark chocolate bars, sweet, not too sweet, and granola makes me feel better about what I'm eating.

These yummy new snacks are exclusively available at convenience stores!

Which is a lil bit of a double edged sword, my daughter loves the Cocoa puff bars, and would prolly have them for breakfast if I let her, but a special trip to the local convenience store for the special treat would prolly make them all the more special!
