Giveaway! Halloween Comes Early in Nature Valley

October 21st, 2010

Nature Valley Granola Thins

Hey there, I’m back! I’m happy to return to the blog, though a little sad to report that I only found 1 single jar of peanut butter over the course of two whole weeks in Spain. My European readers weren’t kidding when they said it was hard to find! On the bright side at least the spanish like their chocolate and pastries, so we found plenty of those.

I have a bunch to share about the trip but for now I’m going to celebrate my return to the US (and its readily available peanut butter) with my very first chocolate peanut butter giveaway! How exciting! And it’s not from just anyone – we’re giving away goodies from one of my favorite snack companies: Nature Valley. Yum!!

Nature Valley, maker of super-tasty granola bars was kind enough to share two excellent new products with me. They recently released these Granola Thins, which come in both peanut butter and dark chocolate.

Nature Valley Granola Thins

Nature Valley makes healthy and convenient snacks that are really tasty and satisfying. I am one of those people that can – I will admit – get a little cranky if hunger strikes when there’s no food in sight, and their bars (safely stashed in my purse) have saved me on plenty of occasions.

Nature Valley Granola Thins

What makes Granola Thins different than other Granola Bars?
These Granola Thins are a little different than the typical log-shaped granola bars that you’re used to. Crunchy, nutty and packed with oats, they are similar in texture to Nature Valley’s Oats ‘N Honey Crunchy Granola Bars, but thinner and lined with a layer of either rich dark chocolate or luscious peanut butter. It’s a satisfying, low-calorie snack with a little indulgence.

So who’s hungry? Let’s get to the giveaway!

The Nature Valley Giveaway Prize Pack includes:
• A box of Dark Chocolate Granola Thins (includes 10 Thins)
• A box of Peanut Butter Granola Thins (includes 10 Thins)
• Nature-Inspired Mug
• Mouse Pad
• & Desk Calendar

And the giveaway rules are:
In order to choose a winner, I love to hear from my readers (those that I know or those that I don’t) so I’m going to just ask you drop me a line. I get a pretty good amount of traffic here on the blog, but a lot of you never say hi! Are you closeted chocolate peanut butter fans? Don’t be ashamed! Chocolate and peanut butter should be celebrated at all times! Say hello via twitter @cpbgallery or in the comments section below.

Here is some inspiration if you don’t know what to say:
• Just simply, say hello! :) or Trick or Treat!
• Share why you love Nature Valley products or granola bars in general.
• Share what you love about chocolate & peanut butter!
• For the advanced commenter: share a haiku about granola bars and/or chocolate & peanut butter. Incase you don’t know or need a refresh, haikus are 17 syllable poems divided into 3 phrases: 5 syllables, 7, then another 5.

The winner will be announced on Tuesday, October 26, 2010. I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks to Nature Valley for sharing the deliciousness!

  • No haiku, but I do love Nature Valley, chocolate, and PB, so this seems like a match made in heaven to me! I think a granola thin with a glass of milk might make a nice post-workout treat/bribe.

  • I have become addicted to natural peanut butter! No complaints here though! I’ve been eating it on bananas everyday and that is the way to go.

  • Haha well hello there! I love chocolate and Peanut butter so much! I can just sit with a jar of peanut butter and some dark chocolate chips and be content and happy for every meal! : P I love peanut butter on ice cream, with bananas, with waffles, and more! I also love Nature Valley bars! I love using the squares as like the graham crackers in smores! Sooo good! ^_^

    And now, here’s a little Haiku to end my post with!

    Peanuts are so good
    Love them smushed into butter
    Chocolate is divine!

  • I check your blog about once a week. Love that it has a pretty narrow focus that has clearly enlightened many readers like myself about the variety of products and ways to use CPB. And I love me some granola. Wouldn’t mind trying this new version.

  • choc & pb is the ultimate snack combo for me! i always keep some choclate-y or nutty granola bars in my desk for when that 2:00 snack attack comes :)

  • Nature Valley granola bars are awesome, especially the peanut buttery ones (regular or ‘sweet n salty’). I’d be very excited to try these granola thins!

  • I would make a s’more with those. One chocolate and one peanut butter one or maybe two pb ones with a chocolate bar. Heck, you could put chocolate in the first combo too or make a triple chocolate s’more!
