Giveaway Extravaganza – Part 2

Are you ready to beat the heat of the summer, tell it “adios, leave me alone!”?  I am.  I think just about everyone is.  I’m pretty sure all of north Texas was celebrating yesterday, when the high was only 79.  It had been 107 the day before.  Unfortunately, we’re back up to 95.

So I decided to rummage through the fridge and freezer and find a tasty treat.  I pulled out a Yoplait Splitz (or two), provided to me by MyBlogSpark.  Yogurt with No High Fructose Corn Syrup

Yoplait never ceases to amaze me with the range of flavors that they create.

But the Splitz are different than normal Yoplait yogurts:

  • no high fructose corn syrup
  • no artificial flavors or sweeteners
  • no red dyes (they are colored with things like carmine, turmeric extract, and annatto extract)

Like other Yoplait yogurts, they are smooth and flavorful.  These have two layers, though (the “splitz”).  Currently, the flavors are Strawberry Banana Split, Strawberry Sundae, and Rainbow Sherbet, and they are fairly true to their names.

You can even eat them frozen, for a cool, tasty treat.  You may not eat just one (less guilt, and all that rationalization).

In honor of the approaching cooler temperatures, MyBlogSpark would like to offer one Yoplait Splitz prize pack, which includes a coupon for a free package of Yoplait Splitz, a cool insulated carry tote (great for picnics!) and a roll-up fleece picnic blanket.  (Unfortunately, some states don’t like the coupon idea: CA, ID, LA, MN, NJ, NV, ND, TN.)   The winner must have a US address.

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment about fall or picnics.  For instance, what are you most looking forward to this fall, or what is your favorite picnic food?

This giveaway will end on Friday, September 10, 2010, at 9:00pm Central.

    Our favorite time is the fall. The kids love playing in the leaves at the park. We are huge fans of finger foods. Meat, cheese, fruit and veggies. Easy packable things.

    The fall is definitely one of my favorite times of year. We go camping, hiking, trail riding, and enjoy the beach once all the NY’ers go home =). Oh, and my birthday’s in the fall, so that obviously makes it the best season!

    My favorite picnic food is wine and a nice cheese with crackers and grapes!

    The weather has really cooled off this week, heralding things to come, I think. It has me dreaming of pumpkin picking, apple picking, hot spiced apple cider, and all the other glorious fall-ish treats. Oh, and candy corn. Definitely candy corn.

    Hmm, I love lots of “traditional” picnic foods like deviled eggs and potato salad. But maybe I should add yogurt to the list!

    I am SO ready for the Fall. I say that every year, but I am super ready this year, 🙂 We have had a larger than normal number of 100+ degree days, which is probably the reason!

    I don’t have a favorite picnic food other than those that aren’t sticky. I love just taking leftovers and eating them cold. We’ve had a cold front the last few days and wow it has been so nice to sit outside and read!

    Fall is probably my fave season. I love the autumn colors and the crisp air. And making big pots of soup again. And I like wearing fall clothes more than spring/summer wear. Plus it means the holidays are coming up. 🙂

    Ooh Fall! time for dinners that prominently feature sweet potatoes, cozy sweaters, and apple picking!

    I make a black bean pasta salad (with rice rotini) that is fabulous for fall picnics. We bring some fruit, and maybe some gf peanut butter cookies and have a feast

    I love fall foliage, the cooler temperatures, the apples at the local fruit stands. This is my favorite time of year for making soups and breads for simple, filling meals.

    My family is most looking forward to the leaves changing and hiking in beautiful Michigan. I’m looking forward to making fall recipes such as pot roast and apple crisp.


    Love deviled eggs!

    Our favorite picnic foods are the easily packable ones — fruits, cheese, lunch meats, nuts, crackers, etc. And Fall is absolutely our favorite time of year!

    Fall doesn’t visit my part of Texas much, but I can only imagine coolish days, cooler nights, sitting on the porch without mosquitoes!

    This fall, I am really looking forward to seeing the leaves on the East coast for the first time!

    my favorite thing about fall is apple picking because not only doget to have family time together (and this year I can bring a sandwich made from Udi’s YEA!!) but then we come home and make homemade applesauce and drie apple chips. I just love fall

    One of my favorite things about fall is going on a picnic and not having to worry about the heat ruining my mood. We haven’t quite reached that temp here, yet… But I cant wait! Better yet? A picnic followed by a football game!

  19. Andrea Avatar

    I love the big picnics we have for football tailgating parties! My favorite food is the incredible baked beans that my husband makes, mmmmmm!

    fall – pumpkin recipes! sweet potato! acorn squash!
    wearing long sleeves.

    I love the fall- we often have a fairly mild fall season, so we get to enjoy picnics even in the fall. I love to bring some sandwiches and fruit and something for desert- it is always a hit.


    Love Fall because we can finally enjoy being outside! It has been Hot this summer in Florida!
