Special K® Review and Giveaway!

(giveaway below!)

I am sure many of you have made a resolution this year like I have: This is the year I am getting down to my ideal weight! Like me, you may have struggled with this goal and possibly given up altogether.

The generous people at Special K® contacted me to help spread the word about two new products that can help with our weight loss/maintenance goals. The first product is a yummy granola cereal. I love granola. Love, love, love it. And yet, I am kinda picky when it comes to what I am willing to pay for. It has to be completely satisfying to my sweet tooth, a good price and low in fat. Special K® has hit the mark on all three of my requirements.

Healthy and yummy, Special K's® granola has whole grain granola clusters sweetened with a touch of honey and toasted to perfection for a great taste and hearty crunch. With 50 percent less fat than the leading granola, Special K® Low Fat Granola contains 3g fat per 52g serving, while the leading granola contains 6g fat per 51g serving. The low-fat granola boasts 190 calories, six grams of protein and five grams of fiber.

The second product is Special K's® Fruit Crisp Bars. These bars come in blueberry and strawberry . Two crispy bars, with 100 fruity calories, Special K® Fruit Crisps are the solution for a great-tasting snack. With a fruity strawberry or blueberry filling, and lightly sweetened drizzle on top Special K® Fruit Crisps are the perfect crispy snack to help keep you on track.

They are a bit like Pop-Tarts, only without the guilt. And with a delicate, flaky crunch, it is more like dessert than a hurry-up breakfast solution. The best part is that they don't go in the toaster, so there is no waiting for your treat. Just rip open that package and enjoy, guilt free.

With the variety that Special K® offers, you can be victorious in your weight management goals. And speaking of being victorious, Special K has recently launched their Declare Victory with Special K campaign:

This year, Special K® brings victory to life with six real women who are sharing their own personal victories, because what’s more encouraging than Declaring Victory with women who are just like you? These six women are sharing their stories both on television and online to encourage women across the country to declare victory this year. They aren’t celebrities or public figures; they’re real women—friends, neighbors, sisters and moms—all with one thing in common—this is their year.

So now that you are as excited as I am about Special K® and their two new products, I am sure you cannot wait to try them. I can help you with that! Thanks to the generosity of Special K®, I am giving away two boxes of Special K Low Fat Granola cereal. Two commenters will win!
