Delightfully Gluten Free (TM)

Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks and Giveaway

I hope that you are all doing well, and not getting too sick this flu season.  I think I had a bout of it myself last week.  For the most part, it was head related – headache and dizziness, which wasn’t too bad when I was allowed to lay in bed and be left alone (which, of course, did not happen all that often).

On the bright side, however, I read a ton.  I have, of late, taken to the 8-12 year old fantasy genre – much cleaner, and often more exciting, than anything written for adults.  Plus, Braden and I can discuss the books.  I was able to read the entire Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, The Mysterious Benedict Society (only the first one), and most of The Sisters Grimm series.  I recommend them all.

But you may have noticed that with my flu, came a lack of my presence online.  I actually got accused of plotting something…

Up for grabs today is a package of fun and nostalgia from Betty Crocker, courtesy of MyBlogSpark.

When Braden was little, I traveled with fruit snacks in my purse constantly.  Those things are addicting, aren’t they?  I think it has something to do with the way they squish in your mouth.

As you may have noticed, the Fruit by the Foot makes a fairly good racetrack on a birthday cake.

Gluten Free Fruit Snacks Prize Pack

This giveaway features a 2 boxes of Betty Crocker fruit-flavored snacks, a frisbee, a yo-yo (which lights up, I think, though the kids ran off with mine), and a little wooden box of pick-up sticks.

And, bonus!  The Betty Crocker snacks now say GLUTEN-FREE on the package!

To enter, just leave me a comment about your favorite game, toy, or pastime as a child.  As you may have guessed, mine was reading.  Although swimming came in a close second during our 8 months of summer (it sometimes feels like that).

This contest will end at 9:00 pm central on Monday, October 19, 2009.

    Gotta love those Betty Crocker fruit snacks! We always have some on hand and now it’s my 12 yr old daughter who carries them in her purse! She’s more independent these days and they come in great when she’s with friends and can’t eat whatever snack they’re having. (oh and a side bonus of her keeping some in her purse is that her little brother won’t go in her purse so he doesn’t eat them all up on her! lol)

    My favorite pastime as a kid…wow, that’s a hard one. I loved to read, loved to swim, loved to ride my bike, loved to play with baby dolls, loved to go exploring in the woods, etc. I guess if I had to pick just one it would be reading. ; )

    My favorite past time as a kid was playing SPUD! You know that game you throw the ball up in the air and everyone runs away except the person who catches it and then you have to spell out S P U D and try and hit the person (no in the face) with the ball. Such simple game but we played it for hours.

    My favorite pastime in the summer was kick the can. The whole neighborhood would get together and we would play from supper past dark all summer long.

    My favorite pass time as a child was riding my bike. We lived in the country and the closest neighbors were about 1 1/2 miles away. We would meet in the middle. We would bring snacks and have a picnic. I also loved playing Barbie dolls and paper dolls..

    As a little girl I loved going into the sand box and pretending I was having my very own cooking show…yummy “mud pies.”

    I also loved reading, a fact that my dad was thrilled with because my brother took after my mom (who doesn’t read for fun).

    I loved fishing! My dad would give me a penny for every fish, and one summer I made $1.25!

    As a child I really liked to play with other kids. We’d play hide and seek in the field or “my little ponies”. 🙂 I didn’t discover a love for reading until adulthood.

    I used to love playing baseball with my older brothers and their friends (I was a tomboy) when I wasn’t playing with my Barbie doll (I only had one) and my Betsy McCall doll. And when I was 5 I remembered playing with my Popeye the Weatherman colorforms.
