END OF SUMMER GIVEAWAY

My last blog was a bit a a bummer, so I thought I would make this one a positive entry. And what is more positive than a giveaway?! I'll tell you what....4 weeks of giveaways! That's right, I will be doing a giveaway every week for the next 4 weeks. This first giveaway is in honor of this ending summer and my favorite summer treats. Mecinna from Price Products has donated a 4-pack of dripstiks to one lucky reader, and just for fun, I will add a $5 gift certificate to target so you can try some Edy's Whole Fruit Bars. All you have to do is make a comment on this blog telling me your favorite summer treat. For an extra entry, let me know that you are a subscriber to my blog. (Tell me in a second comment.) I will announce the winner on Friday, along with announcing the 2nd giveaway! Good luck....

Oh - and this is the giveaway that I am DIEING to win for myself. Check it out.

I discovered two really great treats this summer. One is Minute Maid frozen lemonade, limeade, and cherry limeade. They come in these little cone shaped things and are so good. They are also very low on the calories so they are an okay treat.
The other is not so low on calories and can only be enjoyed very sparingly. It is good old fashioned peanut m&m's but the twist is that I put them in the freezer. I discovered this by accident when they had started to get soft after being in my car for a little too long. I stuck them in the freezer and accidentally left them in there for too long as well. We opened them up and tried one and they are so good on a hot day when they are that cold!

I want these. Bad. My favorite summer treats are Strawberry Creamies. Are they only in Utah? I'm not sure. But they are so delicious, and fairly low in calories. And the drip sticks would go perfectly with them.

lisa said...

....and of COURSE I subscribe.

I have LOVED sweet things this summer (which is unusual for me) so one of my "keep it in my purse" treats this summer is Australian STRAWBERRY licorice! It's a specific brand that I can only find at Target but I can't think of the name. It's really yummy and fat free!

I am boring when it comes to treats. I figure that I shouldn't try new treats because that would only get me addicted to yet another thing I should not put into my body. But... if I am going to get a treat, why not a "Love It" from Cold Stone Creamery with Birthday Cake and Black Cherry add ins.

beth said...

SUBSCRIBER....yes! You still could have brought Lydia. The accident wasn't until 7:30 PM. And if she had been there, she may have kept it from happening or......

The Linabooty's said...

Watermellon of course! Although my treat this week has been snotty noses wiped on my shirt.... just getting warmed up for winter I guess.

Ashley said...

Ice cream, of course!!!

Oh these would be so nice to have with 3 little kids!!

My favorite summer treat...this summer I have had cravings for rootbeer floats like crazy!! Which is weird because I usually don't. Maybe it's a pregnancy thing:)

Other than that, I have really enjoyed stealing the kid's push pops and getting shave ice!! YUMMY!

I will be posting/linking you right now:

i'm always a sucker for a snowcone or an ice cream cone

tristanjh said...

I love creamcicles...they are the best. My kid's love the rootbeer version.

beba said...

I am from Utah. Utah consumes the most ice cream of any state. I feel that I and my posterity are in desperate need of some popcicle holders.

beba said...

You may be ashamed to go to the Y with me after this comment, but what does it mean to be a subscriber? I am only asking this in a public forum so your answer will not only bless me but also bless the lives of others who need more blog knowledge.

When I'm being healthy, all the fresh fruit! When I'm being unhealthy, ice cream, popsicles . . . if it's frozen & sweet, chances are I love it LOL.

blueviolet said...

My favorite summer treat is to have a fruity crushed ice drink like a Slush Puppy or Mr. Misty or whatever they're called. They are really yummy!
