Giveaway: Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters

There's a certain point in the day in between lunch and dinner when my daughters need a little pick-me-up. Finding the right snack can be a challenge. They can spend weeks eating the same thing day in and day out and then decide they don't like that particular snack anymore. So I was thrilled to receive a package yesterday from My Blog Spark containing Nature Valley's new Granola Nut Clusters.
There are four flavors to this new snack: Nut Lovers, Roasted Almonds, Roasted Cashews and Honey Roasted Peanuts. Each treat combines nuts, granola and a touch of honey for a yummy mix of sweet and salty.

I'll be honest, here. My stomach does not tolerate any nut other than peanuts. I tried the Honey Roasted Peanut variety and it is delicious. Just a few "clusters" curbed my snacking instinct. According to the package, a serving size is about 7 clusters, which contains 140 calories and 7 grams of fat.
I put the other flavors to the "quadruplet test." My
girls enjoyed each cluster flavor and asked for more. Roo said "it's better than chocolate," which I think is a pretty amazing review for a four-year-old. The best review, though, may have come from my pickiest eater. Sue Sue opted not to try the Roasted Almond flavor, which was their first sample. She rarely tries anything new, so I thought I might have to make this a "triple test." When I opened the bag of Nut Lovers clusters, she made a bee line for the table, popped it in her mouth and (through a mouth full of granola, peanuts and pecans) said "this is tasty."My prize pack also came with a sling backpack, stainless steel water bottle, flashlight and binoculars. (Hubby claimed the binoculars the second he saw them).
Thanks to My Blog Spark and Nature Valley, one of my readers can win the same Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters prize package. You'll receive all four nut cluster flavors, plus the backpack, water bottle, flashlight and binoculars.

I love your blog - check it every day! My husband and I enjoy traveling - especially viewing the beautiful landscapes of our country. We always carry snacks in the car. Granola bars help curb the appetite and give us the energy we need to keep traveling. My email is grace_godwin@hotmail.com

Nature? I'm not a huge fan of bugs, so I leave the nature to Lucas. In all seriousness, we spend a lot of time playing with the neighbours in the yard, go to parks frequently, and sometimes explore the wild area behind our house. We also do toddler-friendly physics experiments, but don't think that's the kind of nature you meant.

I take my 3 kids hiking, camping, kayaking fishing and geocaching. Granola is the perfect snack for our adventures. We will have to try these nut clusters. Thanks for the idea.
