I Heart Keenwah Creative Quinoa Snack Giveaway

I grow so weary of the same snacks over and over.  As a runner, I often look for easy portable snacks in bar form that I can grab on the go and eat before I workout.  But they do grow old.  When I heard about the new I Heart Keenwah snacks, nutritious and made from an all natural quinoa cluster, I was excited to try them. 

 I was particularly pleased when I looked at the ingredients and found that there was nothing foreign and unprounouncable on there:  organic quonia, cashews, tapioca syrup, raw sugar, dried cranberries, honey, almond oil, baking soda and salt.  I loved that they were the perfect size to toss a few in the pocket of a running jacket in case I needed a nibble in the middle of a long run. 

But the true test for snacky goodness was, of course, the taste test.  Sometimes the all-natural snacks just don't have much flavor.  Well, let me tell you, these do not disappoint!  First off, they are crunchy and chewy, but without being dry and crumbly.  I loved the sweet burst of flavor.  All three boys really enjoyed them, and Pierce said his favorite part was the cranberries. 

And now I have a little confession (blush).  When I received the email asking if I'd like to review these, I asked if they would send extra so I could give away one for my readers.  I was so greedy to try these that I opened the big bag first and dug right in, without reading the little accompanying note.  I was supposed to eat the sample bags and give away the big bag (OOPS!).  So sorry readers - I'm terribly embarrassed.  What a bad blogger I have been!  And thank goodness this tasty snack is only 120 calories per serving, huh?  Anyhow, so instead, I'm giving away to one very lucky reader two sample bags - one almond and one peanut ginger.  And next time I promise to read first and chow down later (all this running I do - sometimes it just makes a girl mighty hungry!). 

Disclaimer:  I received 3 bags of I heart Keenwah for review purposes and since I piggishly ate the wrong bag, I will be giving away the two smaller bags.  The opinions stated above are my own.

They sound good.
I can't believe they want you to mail the winners win!! Whats up with that.

And you should get to eat them all. I guess companies don't realize what a pain a giveaway can be and how much work goes into it.
