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!
