Giveaway: Fruit Roll-ups and Granola Bars

This summer, I had a chance to try some snack products from Costco through MyBlogSpark.com. And I get to give away a "Costco Sunny Day Snacks Pack!" To enter the giveaway, read the review, and leave a comment with your favorite summer snack idea. Make sure you also leave a way for me to contact you if you win. You can get additional entries for posting a link on Facebook or Twitter, or sharing a link on your blog. Just post a comment saying you did that. I will draw a winner on Thursday July 15th, so make sure you enter by then.

So what is a Costco Sunny Day Snacks Pack? It is 2 boxes of SimplyFruit fruit roll-ups (42 count), 1 box of Chewy Trail Mix Granola bars (48 count), and a $25 Costco gift card!

I love Costco size packages because then one box actually lasts my family for a while. These fruit roll-ups are softer than regular fruit roll-ups and more like fruit leather. The variety pack includes strawberry and wild berry, I would have liked to have more varieties, but these are both good. Trish claims they taste better than regular fruit roll-ups because they are not as sweet. The other kids seem to like both equally well.

The Trail Mix Granola bars are more substantial than Quaker or Sunbelt granola bars. They work great for a fast breakfast on the run or snack in the car. These ones are the fruit and nut variety with raisins, dried cranberries, almonds, and peanuts. All of the kids liked them except Tyler because he doesn't like raisins.

Overall, these are both great grab-and-go snacks for summer. They were a hit with the kids and enjoyed by the adults as well. And you can't go wrong with a $25 Costco gift card to go along with it. So please enter the drawing and I'll post the winner next Thursday. (I will put numbers in a hat and have one of the kids draw.) Please make sure I can contact you for shipping info or I'll have to choose a different winner!

The product I was given to review, the prize pack, information, and giveaway have all been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

We love those fruit roll-ups and costco is one of my favorite stores. Our favorite snack this summer is popcorn and watermelon. It has been so hot and humid that the watermelon has been very cooling! Plus you can eat it in the pool. :)

Fruit is a great snack. We love to throw some in the blender with some orange juice and make a smoothie.

My friend Arya just told me about this one today, and I think it sounds so easy and yummy. You take sliced pineapples and put them on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet and then freeze them and eat. It's my favorite and I haven't even tried it yet
