Boy, did these bring back memories.
I was the kid growing up that was sent to school with carrot sticks and whole wheat sandwiches. I would watch with envy as my pals would eat their packaged desserts. But! On occasion, I'd get a special treat: Gushers were a favorite. I'd eat them very slowly, making sure they would, well, gush into my mouth as I bit them. The cool kids at school would have their Fruit by the Foot, but they'd eat them in a hurry, unaware that what they were eating was, in my book, a treat to be savored.
Betty Crocker, who, if you haven't heard recently came out with gluten-free baking mixes (try the brownies: they are the best brownie mix I've ever had) contacted me about a giveaway. Because I think this could be a lot of fun for a family, or anyone really, I'm partaking (and I really like supporting companies who make life easier for gluten-free folks). I'll randomly pick someone by 5pm on Friday, December 18th who comments on this blog post and Betty Crocker will send the gift pack your way (it includes a 2 packages of Betty Crocker fruit snacks, pick-up sticks, a yo yo and a frisbee).
Oh, and BTW: all treats in the package are gluten-free and dairy-free. And they're made with real fruit: a huuuuge plus.
