General Mills Cares About Your Heart Giveaway

Another giveaway! Am I boring you all? I just LOVE free stuff and even more so when I can give away free stuff. I know there are people out there who are just total sweeps freaks (no offense of course) and enter them ALL the time. I am not one, but I do enter about 10 a month. So if you see me enter yours, consider yourself a chosen one. Sometimes I enter ones that have prizes that I wouldn't particularly want but that I know would make a great gift to someone else. Like the water purifier I won in January - I didn't need one, we have a built-in filter for our fridge. But my mom had mentioned wanting one and so when I won, it was exciting because I knew she would like it.

I usually don't enter giveaways that have over 300 comments. I just don't think I'm that lucky. But I've won a fair amount of stuff in smaller drawings. A lot of books mostly. One time I won a picture from an Etsy store and never received it. I emailed twice about picture has appeared. Other than that one time, I have had some great experiences with online contests. One of my blogger friends won a laptop a few months ago. And I know another who won a week vacation to some island resort. Whatever-I love books. Who needs an island? Sigh...

ANYWAY, blahblahblah-all anyone cares about right now is WHAT IS THE PRIZE KAYLEN??

Here's the info from my sponsor, General Mills:
Did you know that studies have found that a diet rich in whole grain can be
helpful in maintaining a healthy heart, managing weight and may also reduce the
risk for diabetes and certain types of cancer? Only whole grain gives you the
vital nutrients from the complete grain. In addition to fiber, whole grain
contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients important for a
healthy diet.

General Mills makes it easy to find whole grains, just look for the white
check on the top of every Big G cereal box for your whole grain guarantee.
In a national survey, 91 percent of Americans said they want to incorporate
more whole grain foods into their diets. In fact, nine out of 10 people in the
U.S. still do not eat the minimum recommended daily amount of whole grain (at
least three servings, or 48 grams).

General Mills has been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

And here's the prize:
  • 2 VIP coupons for Big G cereal products
  • A breakfast chiller
  • A large cereal mug
  • A tote bag

The chiller is VERY cool - it's a cereal bowl with separate compartments for your cereal and your milk--with an ice pack ring that keeps your milk cold, AND a built-in spoon.

Hellooooo---built-in spoon???? VERY cool idea. And the big mug is nice, though nobody in my house would be satisfied with that size bowl for cereal. We must have a big bowl. But I love this mug for ice cream. (actually I love any container for ice cream)
