General Mills "Man Snack Pack" Giveaway

Blog Search

 The Man Snack Pack, that's what I've dubbed the latest review and giveaway from MyBlogSpark.  I received two of each of the following three General Mills snack items, sold only at convenience stores, with the request to share them with my man and let you know how he enjoyed them. 

Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate: "An indulgent cereal bar that combines the great taste of Cocoa Puffs cereal and chocolate into one decadent treat, Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate is perfect for satisfying any sweet tooth."  

Bugles Hot Buffalo: "Need something salty with a bit of a kick? Look no further than Bugles Hot Buffalo Crisp Corn Snacks, which blends the taste of hot buffalo sauce with crispy corn Bugles." 

Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars: "If you want the best of both worlds, give Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars a try. These bars mix dark chocolate pieces, oats and crisp rice nuggets for a classic crunch and burst of whole grain goodness, making them a perfect natural snack that's high in fiber and protein, but low in saturated fat."

    When it comes to movies, I have man taste. Give me a good thriller or some great action over those syrupy romance dramas.  But when it comes to snacks, I'm not digging the man pack.  None of these were a hit with me.  But what did my husband think?  We'll start with the bad news.  The Cocoa Puffs bar was not a winner (although I admit to adoring Cocoa Puffs in a bowl, with milk).  In my husband's words, "I only made it through half the bar.It was just too weird and the flavors never really meshed for me."  The other two snacks received high praise.  "The granola bar was great. Loved it. Great balance of chocolate and everything else. It worked." The Bugles were by far the favorite. "First time I have really loved Bugles.  I ate the whole bag in one sitting. Tastes great and has a nice kick."

    Along with the snacks, we also received a Nature Valley travel mug and a Bugles t-shirt from General Mills and MyBlogSpark.  I have an additional "Man's Snack Pack" of snacks, mug, and t-shirt to give away to one of my readers.

    He's a sweet & salty guy - he puts sugar in every dish he makes! But I guess if he had to pick just one, it'd be the salty one...
