**Entries are now closed. Winner to be announced on Nov 10th!**
As we head into the season of indulgences … holiday parties, gifts of fudge, cookie parties, gingerbread houses, appetizer platters, and well, you get the idea … I thought a little nutrition might be in order. While you can’t negate that rum-spiked punch and those decadent truffles, you can start your day off right with a good dose of organic, whole-grain deliciousness.
Not a breakfast person? This prize package also lends itself useful in creating wonderful recipes, from crispy coatings to delicious snack bars (of course, some recipes are forthcoming … perhaps a week’s worth of inspirations?). How you use this jam-packed gift is up to you, in fact, the winner even gets to choose their prizes!
One of you will win a two month’s supply (8 full-size boxes) of U.S. Mills brand cereal products of your choosing – hot or cold; Erewhon, New Morning, or Uncle Sam’s brands; flaked, sweetened, or in a bar format; gluten-free, vegan, and/or soy-free – they are all available to you!
But wait, there is more! The winner will also receive:
- A Patagonia T-Shirt from U.S. Mills
- A Convenient Little Coupon Keeper (perhaps with some awesome cereal coupons included?) – I have one, and it is so perfectly sized for trips to the store.
If I could win (which I can’t), I would go for the following assortment:
- Erewhon Organic Corn Flakes (so verstile) – see my review
- Erewhon Organic Crispy Brown Rice (a must for no-bake goodies) – review and recipes on deck!
- Erewhon Strawberry Crisp Cereal (we devoured this) – see my review
- Erewhon Kamut® Flakes (so unique, I loved them) – see my review
- New Morning Original Oatios (love the simplicity, but the Fruit-e-O’s are probably yummy too) – see my review
- Erewhon Maple Spice Instant Oatmeal (warm, comforting AND low in sugar) – see my review
- Uncle Sam Instant Oatmeal (cool weather, hearty goodness) – see my review
- New Morning Cocoa Crispy Rice (for my choco-holic husband) – we haven’t tried this one yet!
But half the fun is picking your own variety pack! So …
