Gluten-Free Snack Giveaway!

*This giveaway is now closed.

My Blog Spark is a great way for bloggers to review new products, and for those of you who are gluten-free, they include you too! Check it out if you haven't already!

This week, they're giving out Betty Crocker's Fruit Flavored snacks! We've all probably had fruit roll-ups, fruit gushers, and fruit by the foot before, but now we can eat them knowing they're gluten-free! Included is also their fun new Create A Bug snack. Now, I recognize there's a certain irony to me reviewing and giving away fruit flavored snacks a.k.a. candy on this blog since I promote naturally healthy food. And I can't in all good consciousness recommend these as a great buy for your child's school snacks. You know me...I'd much rather you send your kids to school with actual fruit. But I do think these are great for a couple of occasions:
  • Halloween! If you have kids who can't eat gluten, these are a great option so they don't feel left out when they go trick-or-treating.
  • Movie night! I've been feeling a little left out myself when I've gone to the movies lately. Although I don't generally buy candy, I have to admit there's something about watching a movie in a big theater that makes me want to have a treat to go with it. I used to pick gummy snacks, but since going gluten-free, the only gluten-free snacks I could find were super expensive! This is an affordable option, and I'm excited to save some of these snacks for my movie nights (if I can keep my boyfriend from eating them all).
How can you try these for yourself? Just leave a comment telling me what your favorite childhood snack was (and maybe good luck wishes for my two exams this week...I'll need it!). If you don't have a blog, leave an e-mail address where I can contact you too. The giveaway ends Thursday October 8th, at 9:00pm.

My favorite childhood snack that comes to mind right now is hot chocolate. Must be the cool fall weather.

my favorite snack was (and still is) cheddar cheese and peanut butter. I'd go over to my grandmother's house after school and she'd always cut the cheese with her crinkle cutter, so it was fun and wavy. =) We'd usually have sliced apples to go with.
Good luck on your exams--I'm heading into midterm season this week too.

I used to love apples with peanut butter and chocolate chips. We used to make it at girl scout meetings for a snack.

My fav. childhood candy is gummy bears - who doesn't love gummy bears? AND sour patch kids - but not too many - too sour! Good luck on your exams, best of luck and fingers crossed that you do well!
