***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:


You will love these bars!

AWESOME right?! Thanks PURE Bar!

Ok, maybe you’re wondering how you can win one of these fabulous prize packages? You have up to two ways to win:

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! 😀
