Wanchai Ferry & MyBlogSpark (Review/Giveaway)!

For dinner tonight I had a new Wanchai Ferry Beef & Broccoli frozen entrée that I received through MyBlogSpark:This type of meal is right up my alley. Between my boyfriends' & my own schedule, we barely have enough time to sit down and enjoy an entire meal together. This Wanchai Ferry Beef & Broccoli frozen entree was quick, easy, and very yummy!

The directions were very easy to follow and I did not have to alter my cooking times for my appliances (as I usually do!)

I found the meal to be full of flavor and when accompanied by a side salad was more than enough to satisfy both my boyfriend and I. The brocoli was crisp and the water chestnuts slightly crunchy, as they should be! I was definitely impressed to say the least!

Not only did MyBlogSpark provide me the Wanchai Ferry Frozen Entree, they topped it off with two Green Tea tea sets. The tea sets were tea is my absolute favorite! My boyfriends not the biggest tea drinker, but says he was happy he tried it as he would drink it again.

My new refrigerator (thankfully) is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I can't wait to stock my freezer up with Wanchai Ferry Frozen Entrees with the help of this money saving coupon.

MyBlogSpark "Sweet & Salty" Review & Giveaway

I love when MyBlogSpark contacts me to participate in "Sparks." This time for a "Sweet & Salty" Prize Pack which is meant to be geared towards the man in your life.

The prize pack included a Nature Valley coffee travel mug, and a Bugles t-shirt, (2) samples each of Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate, Bugles hot buffalo, and Nature Valley Oats `N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars. (2 of each so it was one for me and one for the boy).

First off, the coffee travel mug was a big hit as we are both HUGE coffee fans! The t-shirt fit Brian well as it was a size L ...makes a cute lil night shirt for me too! :)

Now on to the snacks... my favorite was the Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate. All I can say is...where have they been all my life?! So delicious! Perfect for any chocolate craving.

We eat the Nature Valley Cru
nchy Granola Bars all the time, usually for breakfast on the run. These Dark Chocolate ones are news to me though! They too satisfy any chocolate hankering but also the crunch you sometimes crave. This flavor is more of a snack than a breakfast than the usual granola bars for me, but still gets an A in my book!

Brian's favorite was the Bugles Hot Buffalo by far. He is not the biggest chocolate fan in life. That is for sure. I was lucky to be able to grab a bite of the Bugles before he gobbled them up and really enjoyed them myself as well!


MyBlogSpark and General Mills have generously offered one (1) of my lucky readers a "Sweet & Salty" Prize Pack of their own! The Prize Pack will include:
  • Nature Valley Coffee Travel Mug
  • Bugles T-Shirt
  • (2) Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate Snacks
