Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurt Giveaway

There are millions of Americans with lactose intolerance, and avoiding dairy can have health consequences. According to the National Institute of Health, when dairy is avoided, there are lower intakes of calcium and vitamin D in the diet, both of which are important bone building nutrients often found in dairy. Avoiding dairy can create higher risk for osteoporosis.

February is National Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month, and Yoplait has announced its new Yoplait® Lactose Free yogurt just in time. Lactose Free comes in four delicious flavors – Strawberry, Peach, French Vanilla and Cherry – and contains 50% of the recommended Daily Value of calcium, with vitamins A and D in every cup.

If you’d like to try Yoplait® Lactose Free yogurt, you can print out a coupon HERE.*

GIVEAWAY: One of my subscribers will win a Yoplait Lactose Free Prize Pack, which includes A VIP coupon to purchase Yoplait Lactose Free yogurt, a Lunch tote, 2 Gel packs, Individual bowl, and Spoon.

Merry Christmas…and a Giveaway!

Merry Christmas!  Feliz Navidad!  Feliz Natal! (hubby is Portuguese)

My friends at MyBlogSpark are introducing NEW Frosted Toast Crunch, a cereal that mixes the delightful taste of frosted vanilla (artificially flavored) with a delicious dash of cinnamon.  If you’ve tried Cinnamon Toast Crunch (my younger son’s favorite), Frosted Toast Crunch is very similar but, in my opinion, a tad less sweet.  I had a chance to try it and I thought it was yummy.  My son loved it, too.  Frosted Toast Crunch has 11 grams of whole grain, 9 grams of sugar and is a good source of calcium.  It will be available in stores starting in January.

GIVEAWAY:  

  • Spilt milk bowl
  • Lickety spoon
  • Frosted pitcher
  • Frosted Toast Crunch cereal

You must be an email subscriber to qualify for giveaways on my blog.  To enter, in ONE comment state you are a subscriber and why you are most excited to taste the new Frosted Toast Crunch.

Giveaway entry period ends on Sunday, January 1, 2012 at 6:00 pm Eastern Time.  Open to US only.
