Chex Mix Muddy Buddies Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Chex Mix® heard you loud and clear and is making every day a holiday by offering the previously limited-edition Chex Mix® Muddy Buddies year-round!

Chex Mix Muddy Buddies offers a unique combination of Corn Chex cereal, peanut butter, and chocolate, dusted with a powdery sweet coating. It’s the same delicious snack you’ve been making at home for years, now conveniently packaged and sharable for all occasions. Plus, it’s made with 50% less fat than regular potato chips so you can enjoy the taste without the guilt. Yum!

Check out the Chex Mix Facebook page at Facebook.com/ChexMix and get involved in the conversation! Chex Mix Muddy Buddies might not be available year-round if others hadn’t shared their thoughts about how much they love this mix!

Although we all love Chex Mix Muddy Buddies, it is one of those things I simply don’t ever make.  So when I spotted Muddy Buddies on the shelf back at the holidays, I picked up several bags that were quickly devoured.  So I am thrilled that it is back year round.  When received our prize pack, we didn’t hesitate to break open the bag and between the boys and I, made quick work of that delicious treat!  I love that now when I get a craving for Muddy Buddies I can go to the store and grab them.  Yes, I DO get cravings for that chocolatey, peanut buttery powdered sugar messiness, but that’s why I don’t make it.  Because if I made it, I’d rationalize that if I’m going through the work to make it, I should make a very large batch.  Then there would be a large amount in our house…and self control and Muddy Buddies…they don’t go well together.  So I’m thankful that Chex has made this perfect sized bag that I can split 4 ways and not feel horribly guilty about finishing in a sitting or two.

Enter to Win! Chex Mix Muddy Buddies gift pack that includes a bag of Chex Mix Muddy Buddies, an airtight sealed container, a snacking bowl, and a magnetic clip.

Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch Review and Giveaway CLOSED

With the delicious taste of brownies “baked” into every bowl, Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch is a delicious chocolate-y cereal ready to be enjoyed for breakfast or as a satisfying snack on the go. You will be sure to get some brownie points as your family’s taste buds delight in the perfect balance of whole grain goodness and delicious chocolate flavor in every bite.

Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch has at least 8 grams of whole grain (48 grams recommended daily) and a good source of calcium and Vitamin D in every serving. For chocolate lovers everywhere, Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch is sure to become a choco-licious go-to!

Our family tried the new Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch and it was a BIG hit.  It was gone in two mornings.  Getting my boys to eat first thing in the morning can sometimes be a challenge.  They, like me, aren’t usually ready to eat as soon as they get up. But on days that we need to get up and go, this complicates things.  But having a box of something like Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch on hand can be a big help.  Having an extra special “treat” for breakfast can convince them to eat well and quickly so we can move on with our day without worry that they’ll be whining that they’re hungry as soon as we leave the house.  And with whole grain, calcium and Vitamin D in each serving I don’t have to feel so guilty about this “treat!”

Would your family like to try Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch cereal?

Enter to win this great prize pack:

  • One box of the new Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch cereal;
  • Two cereal on-the-go containers;
  • And, a fun Cocoa Puffs frisbee

Chili’s Triple Dipper – Good Things Come In 3’s Review and Giveaway

My family and I have been Chili’s fans for a long time.  It’s one of those places where there is something there that everyone in the family really enjoys and the service is always fabulous. 
I also love it for lunch during the week. They have great lunch specials and they also have quick service even during the busy lunch rush so you can have a great lunch without being late getting back to work.
But recently it seems Chili’s has really been working hard to outdo even themselves.  There have been many great promotions lately but I am LOVING this latest one, Chili’s Triple Dipper.  If you’re like me you’ve looked at a menu and thought if only I could have this with this combo instead, it’d be perfect.  Well with the new Triple Dipper Good Things REALLY DO Come in 3’s because you can chose from TEN different appetizers for some dippin goodness!  If you can’t find 3 things you LOVE from these choices, you just aren’t hungry!

TRIPLE DIPPER™
Combine your three favorite appetizers! Served with dipping sauces • NEW! Loaded Potato Skins • NEW! Memphis BBQ Skins • NEW! Honey-Chipotle Shrimp • Big Mouth® Bites • Boneless Buffalo Wings • Southwestern Eggrolls • Chicken Crispers® • Wings Over Buffalo® • Fried Cheese • Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

To celebrate this chose your own trio Chili’s gives you the chance to win $20 gift card each day or a grand prize $333 gift card at Shout Out To East Out.

Upload a headshot and create your perfect trio. One random winner every day May 1st – June 30th gets a $20 Chili’s gift card. One grand prize winner will win a $333 Chili’s Gift Card.

Thanks to Chili’s I had the chance to head out to our nearest location to check out the Triple Dipper myself.  Even with THREE choices, it was hard to narrow it down from all the delicious looking choices (I LOVE photo menus).  Because sharing the Triple Dipper 5 ways didn’t sound like fun to me, I chose to have the appetizer sampler, as my meal and I’m so glad I did.  For an appetizer for all of us, we stuck with our tried and true favorite of chips and salsa.  Seriously if you haven’t had their chips and salsa, you NEED to try them because they are my favorite chips in the whole world.  AND they are bottomless (and if you ask nicely they’ll even send you home with some).
As for the Triple Dipper, their equation of 3 appetizers+ 3 dips= 1 happy you.  Totally true.  I loved every bite of mine.  The boneless buffalo wings were full of kick!  The loaded potato skins were amazing.  I love skins, but sometimes they can get a little overly dry, but these were perfect.  And while I think it’s kind of hard to go wrong with Fried Cheese (yeah yeah my arteries hate me but I LOVE it), these were really good and not overly greasy.  Overall it made for the perfect combination.  Now the only problem I have is wanting to go back to try 3 more choices!!!

The Trippler Dipper Menu
one of the options I HAD to get. They were DELICIOUS!

I chose to have the Trippler Dipper as my meal.  Everything about it was amazing.  I had loaded potato skins, boneless buffalo wins and fried cheese.  When it came there MIGHT have been some jealous looks!
And because Chili’s IS one of our whole families favorite places, I did take the whole crew.  But these were the only ones feeling photogenic.
We couldn’t visit Chili’s without getting chips and salsa because they seriously have my favorite chips in the world!!

And this monster of a burger, is what my husband decided to try. It was huge, but he did manage to clean his plate, as did everyone else!! And that says a lot in my book!
