My sweet tooth and my waistline thank you, Yoplait

I have the worst sweet tooth. One that I'm rarely ever successful at fighting off. When the mood strikes me I typically go for whatever sugary treat is closest and I pay for it with that extra nagging 5lbs (and guilt and regret).

Imagine my delight when I was asked to try Yoplait Light's new cake inspired flavors which include Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry Cheesecake and Pineapple Upside-Down Cake. All with only 110 calories and 0 grams of fat.

Ok, let me repeat that: 0 grams of fat.

Sweeter then your average yogurt, Yoplait's cake inspired flavors are rich,creamy and seriously a perfect alternative to grabbing an actual slice of cake that your waistline will later make you pay for.

In a word they are wonderful. Perfect for those afternoon and evening sweet cravings and the best part is eating them doesn't come with all the guilt.

Now, go forth and get some and be sure to bring this coupon with you when you go.

Chex Mix Bars: Basket of Indulgence

Because I love to make people happy and thought it would be fun to participate in the Bloggy Giveaways Fall Carnival, I offer three very lucky people Baskets of Indulgence courtesy of new Chex Mix Bars.

Chex Mix bars combine crunchy Chex pieces, pretzels and peanuts with chewy and indulgent ingredients like caramel and chocolate. And if that's not enough, they have less than 150 calories per bar and provide at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving.

This fabulous basket includes a box of tasty Turtle Chex Mix Bars, chocolate candles, caramel lotion and spa essentials like a loofah, hand massager, nail brush and spa towel.

Heavenly right ? What are you waiting for ? Leave me a comment and you'll be entered to win. But hurry...because this contest ends 10/31.

Savoring the flavor

I love that Pillsbury's tagline on their webpage devoted to new Savorings is "Bring happy hour home with Pillsbury Savorings".

Frankly, Savorings kick traditional happy hour fares heiny. These little "flaky pastry bites" are nothing like the bowl of stale pretzels or overloaded nachos you might experience at your local watering hole. We tried the Spinach and Cheese flavor and seriously these babies are like little bites of heaven. The perfect mix of flavors, Savorings are buttery and flavorful and practically melt in your mouth. From your grocery store freezer section to your table in about 20 minutes, Savorings are truly worth the wait.

And in true Because I Must Review It fashion, because I heart you and I want you to share in my joy, I've got a wonderful Savorings gift bag to give away.

The winner will receive a coupon for a free package of Savorings, a wine opener, a wine stopper, a package of wine glass charms, an appetizer plate that holds your wine glass and a Wine & Food matching guide .

Pretty cool huh ? Well what are you waiting for? Hurry up, leave me a comment telling me what appetizer you love and you'll be entered to win. One winner will be selected at random from all comments received by 10/24. (Sorry...but this one is only open to U.S. and Canadian residents )
