Creamy, fruity, crunchy: yummy!

Sometimes people send me things, and then I turn around and give them to you. And sometimes they say, “We’d like you to try this product to see if you’d like to share it with your readers,” and then I generously take that bullet on your behalf. Because I care.

This week, some folks contacted me on behalf of Breyers new YoCrunch Parfaits, adorable 4-packs of cups meant to mimic the more expensive yogurt parfaits you can buy at your favorite coffee place. You get the fruit, the low-fat vanilla yogurt, and then some granola to sprinkle on top. They sent me a 4-pack to try and my children descended upon it like locusts. The verdict? “When are you going to buy some more of these, Mom? I want one in my lunch every day!”

And the truth is, you know how I am about convenience packs. Generally speaking, I’d rather buy my own fruit, yogurt, and granola separately (heck, most of the time I make my own granola, and sometimes I make my own yogurt, too!) to save money and reduce waste. But the other truth is that at 6:00 in the morning when I’m packing lunches, it’s awfully nice to have these perfectly-sized single-servings ready to go. And—unlike so many of the alternatives—the YoCrunch parfaits don’t contain any HFCS or artificial sweeteners. Awesome.

Guess what I have! 10 coupons, each valid for a free 4-pack of Breyers YoCrunch Parfaits. And they’re all for you, my pretties! For this contest, we’ll have four winners: One of you will get one coupon, one will get two, one will get three, and the big winner will get four.

Want to play? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Sunday, August 22nd, 2010 for a chance to win. Winners to be determined by random number generation and fruitiliciousness. Whatever that means.

Ready? Go!


  1. Being the first to enter must be lucky!!

  2. I can only eat yogurt if I have something crunchy in it. Yay!

  3. I feel like being in the first four to comment totally negates any chance I might have of winning, but I also know that if I wait until later I will forget to come back here. So. To conclude, I would like some yogurts, please. Okthnx.

  4. That’s my breakfast combo every morning, it would be great to have it all put together for me πŸ™‚ Thanks!
