Fabulous Favorite Friday

Digg!
Happy Friday everyone! I thought I would pee my pants laughing last night at The Office. I won't go into a lot of detail in case you haven't seen it yet, but I have to say I wasn't disappointed at all. I am wondering where the show will go from here. Such a great show.


So today is my Fabulous Favorite Friday post and I'm so excited to share with you a new product that I had never tried before until last week.
Occasionally I have been given the opportunity to try new items through the My BlogSpark program. I was contacted recently and asked if I'd like to try Nature Valley Nut Clusters. I thought, heck yeah! Sign me up!
When I had gestational diabetes last year, I learned that nuts were a good thing to incorporate into my diet. So since then I've been getting nuts as a snack. I like how easy it is to grab some and go. So the thought of getting to try a snack with nuts sounded great. Especially since I've been getting board with eating just plain old cashews.
I was so tickled to receive the Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters "Snack Pack" prize pack pictured above. It was like Christmas in October. The four bags of nut clusters are Roasted Almond, Roasted Cashew, Nut Lovers, and Honey Roasted Peanut. I decided to try the Honey Roasted Peanut first. As soon as I put the first one in my mouth I knew I was in trouble. These things are good. And I mean really, really good. Addictive good. You can not just eat one. I liked that the little nut clusters are bite size. They are a sweet and salty snack. They would fit perfectly in those little snack size Ziploc baggies and they are easy to grab and go if you are in a hurry. I have since torn into the other bags and they are all heavenly.
The description I received of the nut clusters says they are made with "100% natural ingredients that include select roast nuts, whole grain oats, and a touch of honey". The clusters are a good combo of all those things. It is hard for me to say which of these I like the best because I think they are all good. I would eat all of them again.

Another cool thing about these is that they have the Box Tops for Education tops to them so you snack and save those for the kids schools. I just love it when packages have those Box Tops for Education tops to them.
So if you are looking for something new to try, I highly recommend these snacks. I will definitely be stocking up on these.

....and what am I dressing up for on Halloween? Probably a very boring law student - I'm knee-deep in the middle of a project and won't have time to go have fun! If I DO dress up for trick-or-treaters, it'll be in one of my Renaissance faire costumes. :)
