Happy Birthday GIVE AWAY!

Posted by texasholly |

Today is my birthday!



And I am giving away a present.

A week or so ago I got a box in the mail from Little Debbie. It was full of their newly packaged 100 calorie packs.

Snacks in a box!

Lots of fun snacks in a box!

Who doesn't like fun snacks in a box?

What Little Debbie doesn't know is that I grew up on Little Debbie's. Not that my family had tons of snacks sitting around.

We didn't.

But WAY back in the 1970s most packaged cookies contained lard. I was raised vegetarian. Vegetarianism and lard just don't mix.

Little Debbie's snackcakes never had lard.

On the occasions that my mom bought packaged cookies it was always Little Debbie's and usually the soft oatmeal sandwich cookies with the marshmellowy center.

Mmmmm....

Anyway, they said that I could give away another box.

Here is what it looks like:



It is FULL of snacks.

All you need to do to enter this 24 hour contest is to leave a comment!

Please make sure I can get a hold of you.

I will choose someone who comments during the EST hours of my birthday, January 13, 2009.

Good luck!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOLLY! I hope you had a fantastic birthday and all your wishes come true. I have fond memories of the oatmeal cream cookies myself. Haven't had one in a while hmmm maybe I'll buy some...no I'm going to hold out for 100 calorie snacks. Can't eat like I used to as a kid. Here's wishing you many more Happy Birthdays.

~Diet Goddess~ said...

Happy birthday to you! I'm so excited to see that Little Debbie is doing 100 calorie packs! I've had to cut that little beeyatch out of my life because she's a little temptress with her delicious wares. So glad to know I can let her back in when she comes calling!

Colleen said...

Happy birthday! I would be happy to share the little debbie snacks with my family. Thanks for the chance to win these!

Trannyhead said...

Hawt! Sounds delish ... You know, I had this distant relative who lived near a Little Debbie plant in Virginia. And her house always smelled like Little Debbie snack cakes. Which was awesome to me as a kid. I'm not so sure if that would be awesome for an adult, but it was awesome as a kid for sure.

If there's no lard I'm not in danger of getting a lard-butt, am I?
Happy Birthday!
