Trix Swirls Creative Kid's Gift Basket Giveaway ~ 2 Winners!

*This Giveaway has now ended: Winners are #6 Emilie and #92 Danielle,
Please check your email so I can send you your prize!*
We love getting the mail at our house. Every day is full of fun free stuff! This week, we received this fun package from My Blog Spark.
The generous people at My Blog Spark have even offered 2 of these fantastic prizes for me to giveaway to my readers!
I've blogged before about high sugar cereals, and Trix was on my list! I still stand by the fact that Trix is a high sugar cereal, but those are just the facts. While we strive to eat as organically as possible, we still leave room for treats.
And this was certainly a treat! Trix now comes in the Trix Swirls variety. Maybe I just haven't had it in awhile, but the beautiful swirls and lemon-lime goodness were so intense! I could have eaten all the green/yellow ones right out of the box. And I might have if my kids weren't watching.
My kids were excited. It was like candy! The box says it's made with whole grains and has calcium and vitamin D. While I appreciate all those things (really I do), we were excited because it's fun!
The Trix Swirls Creative Kid's Gift Basket contains: One box of Trix Swirls cereal, one swirly apron, one red Trix art box, a large Trix sketchbook, one set of Prang watercolor paints, Prang paint brushes, and prang watercolor pencils.
This giveaway will have 2 winners!
If you'd like to win, just leave a comment sharing your thoughts on new Trix Swirls.

No compensation was given for this review. I did receive a trix gift basket to sample the new product. All views and opinions are my own.

The colors make it very very attractive to kids. I'd like to see the nutritional content and see if it's attractive to moms as well. Very high in sugar...yikes. Maybe for a treat.
Love the activity stuff though.

This sounds like something my kids would really like because they like Trix Yogurt a lot.

Emelie said...

it reminds me of childhood before trix went to shaped fruits. My kids would love this as a treat (mixed in with some nuts and granola)

Its the trix name that would hook my kids

flyd1 said...

The kids love the sweetened cereals. I disapprove since becoming diabetic so I allow a small amount of sweetened cereal on top of a healthy helping of unsweetened rich in fiber cereal

cstironkat said...

The colors are so pretty. I would let them get trix but I would mix them with a non-sugary cereal such as cheerios or kix. This is how we eat cereal in our house. I also mix corn flakes with sugar frosted corn flakes. Its better for the kids and they will actually eat it.

Cody said...

Haven't had a chance to try them, but they look really good. Thanks for the opportunity!

I think Trix Swirls were created when there was no more milk in the house and I had to use orange juice instead. As soon as the juice hit the Trix, WHEEEE!!!!! they exploded into brilliant colors!! Thank you for the contest!

I LOVE TRIX! I have rabbit on the brain in the mornin' I tell ya. Put him next to all the "good"cereals in the cupboard and I can't resist him smilin at me sayin' yum sugar for breakfast... eat this and skip dessert tonight! So darn convincing... besides if I eat them all then the kids have nothing but "good" cereal for them to eat and isn't that better for them anyway? I would LOVE to try the swirl Trix too. If I win, kids can have all the neat art stuff and the box they came in. Hehehe. :)

Trix Swirls are treats for my children. Once a week they can enjoy sugary cereals for breakfast. I don't want to deprive them as I was as a child. My Mom would buy sugary cereals maybe once or twice a year. I hope I win.

The Trix Swirls look delicious! I agree with you that high-sugar cereals like Trix are fun and delicious - just be aware of the nutritional value and eat occasionally or small quantities. The idea of mixing two flavors sounds like a fun way to teach toddlers about taste. Honestly, I wouldn't give my daughter a full bowl of these every day, but I would use as a sweet treat or added to another cereal.
