Energize Your Day with Kraft {Giveaway!} – Frugal Novice

Energize Your Day with Kraft {Giveaway!}

I’m really excited to have been selected as a 2012 Kraft Foods Blogger – not only because it means I get to try great Kraft products early on, but also because I get to share news and great giveaways with you guys! I’ve, like most of you, grown up eating Kraft foods (who hasn’t had Kraft Macaroni & Cheese?) and it’s great to see that they’re continuing to come out with food products that people will really enjoy.

For my first post, Kraft sent me a package with tons of great things to help me energize my day – and YOU get the chance to win the very same items for yourself! I’ll tell you more about that below, so keep an eye out!

I was especially excited to get this package because now that I’m getting further along in my pregnancy, I have the need to snack throughout the day. I’m trying to be conscious of what I eat, so having some quality options is crucial for me to make smart snack choices!

We eat a LOT of peanut butter in our house. The boys want PB sandwiches for lunch pretty much every day, and Brian and I have started bringing them for our lunches at work, too. Oh and don’t get me started on our love of peanut butter with apple slices – Yum! I’m already craving some now.

Speaking of peanut butter – these peanut butter pretzels are my favorite! They’re so good and are easy to throw in my purse for a mid-morning snack.

Another snack we got to try is this caramel popcorn with a twist – it’s got a cinnamon creme drizzle! The cinnamon cuts the sweetness and adds a nice layer of flavor. These are a great sweet treat!

Kraft suggests using these marshmallows in hot chocolate or with ice cream. Can I just say I would be fine eating these on their own? They reminded both Brian and I of marshmallows from a favorite childhood cereal, and I have to admit that on a couple of occasions I’ve just poured a small handful for a treat. They’re SO good, and they’re little so they’re easy for kids to eat.

The Crystal Light energy-on-the-go sticks are great for busy moms who have a lot on their plate! I’m avoiding caffeine right now but I can already envision the day when these will be useful (can anyone say “complete lack of sleep from being up all night with a newborn?)!

I also got two coupons to try Milkbite Milk & Granola Bars (you’ll find them in the refrigerated section, by the way) and Fresh Take, which is a cheese and breadcrumb mix you can use with chicken to add amazing flavor. I have my coupons ready to go and will let you know in a later post what I think of these products. I know I’ve been curious about the Milkbite bars since seeing the commercials on TV!

Of course, beyond the food and Crystal Light I also got an adorable zebra-print lunch tote (seriously looks more like a purse than a lunch box, but it’s insulated and everything – awesome!) and a 14-piece Sistema food storage kit that I absolutely LOVE. Check out how the fork and knife are built right in to this one piece:

I hope you’ll go out and try some of the things I shared with you in this post – we enjoyed everything so much that we’ll definitely be making repeat purchases (we’re already out of the pretzels!) on our next grocery trip. But, of course, you also have the chance to win a package of your own!

One lucky reader will win the same package I received, which includes:

  • Insulated Lunch Tote
  • 14-piece Sistema food storage system
  • Snackwells Peanut Butter Pretzels
  • Snackwells Caramel Popcorn with Cinnamon Drizzle
  • Crystal Light Energy-on-the-go Sticks
  • Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Bits
  • Planters Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Coupon for Milkbite Bars and Fresh Taste
