***The PURE Bar Giveaway is now closed!***

Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend was everything you hoped it to be. Mine definitely was, because it started out by coming home to a big package on my doorstep Friday afternoon. What were the contents of this alleged package? PURE BAR STUFF!

It’s true – the folks at PURE Bar contacted me awhile ago and asked how I thought the readers of Iowa Girl Eats would feel about getting some free PURE Bar goodies. Well, knowing how you guys responded to the last PURE Bar giveaway, I figured you’d LOVE it!

What we’ve got is 7 different packages to win.

4 Grand Prize Winners will receive:

  1. PURE Bar T-shirt. This shirt is extremely soft, thicker than your average T-shirt AND it’s actually cute. Wear in public cute!
  2. Re-usable, nylon shopping bag with handles. This bag is ALSO super cute, but manly too (in case you dudes want to enter…which you should!) It’s a dark brown, LARGE bag, that is perfect for grocery shopping, or even toting around everyday stuff!
  3. All 6 flavors of PURE Bars. CranberryOrange, Wild Blueberry, ChocChip Trailmix, Apple Cinnamon, Chocolate Brownie and Cherry Cashew. I have personally tried every one of these flavors so I can attest to how delicious and mouth-watering they ALL are! PLUS – check out these credentials:

1. Leave me a comment telling me which flavor of PURE Bar you’d most like to try and/or is your favorite.

2. If you have your own blog, mention this giveaway in a post and leave me a second comment letting me know that you’ve done so.

You have until 10:00pm central on Wednesday, August 5th to enter. This contest is open to US residents only. On Thursday afternoon, I will announce the 7 winners!

Good luck to everyone! 😀
