Last night was pretty awesome. I was listening to the radio and they were giving away concert tickets to a show that I had wanted to go to but that I didn’t want to pay for. Call me cheap. Well, having only once tried to win concert tickets… I think I was in fourth grade and really wanted to go to the Spice Girls concert (Omg, did I just admit to that?). I did not win and concluded that it was pointless to ever try to win anything from the radio.
Last night, though, I decided to try just for the hell of it. It was after 9:00pm so I wasn’t using cell phone minutes. What did I have to lose? I won. I couldn’t believe it. Please for a moment imagine me doing the dumbest looking happy dance you can think of. Yep, that’s the one.
In light of that I decided that today was the day to give out some coupons that I’ve had in my drawer for a few weeks.
Mountain High Yoghurt was nice enough to send me come coupons to give away. For the sake of full disclosure I will tell you all that I asked them for the coupons because I eat their Fat Free Vanilla Yoghurt with breakfast every morning. I’m not yet a big of a deal enough to be offered free stuff.
I freaking love this yogurt. It has this really amazing texture and flavor. Then again, it is vanilla and I love all things vanilla so I’m not exactly impartial but I have also had the plain flavor which I like but not as much as I like the vanilla.
Now, it does have sugar in it but its crystalline fructose which is a lower GI than other natural sweeteners. To jack their exact words from their website “Crystalline fructose has a much lower Glycemic index (23) than sugar (65), high fructose corn syrup (62), cane juice, and other sweeteners. The Glycemic index is a tool used to measure how quickly a carbohydrate gets released into the body. Because crystalline fructose is metabolized more slowly by your body, it doesn’t cause insulin surges. Foods with a high Glycemic index can cause insulin spikes and result in cravings for more sweet, high-Glycemic foods, creating a vicious cycle that can ultimately lead to weight gain, diabetes, and other problems.”
Mountain High also has not Artificial Growth Hormones in their yogurt and an ingredient list where I know what everything is.
INGREDIENTS: CULTURED PASTEURIZED NONFAT MILK, CRYSTALLINE FRUCTOSE, NATURAL VANILLA, PECTIN, NATURAL FLAVORS, LIVE, ACTIVE & PROBIOTIC CULTURES (L. BULGARICUS,
S. THERMOPHILUS, L. ACIDOPHILUS, B. BIFIDUS, AND L. CASEI)
You should check out their website because they do have cool recipes that use yogurt and they give away monthly coupons generally for $0.50 off. I do love coupons.
I have three coupons to give away. They are each for a free 32oz container of any variety of Mountain High Yogurt. That’s basically a week of deliciousness.
Here’s how you can enter to win:
1) Comment telling me how you like to use yogurt.
2) Post a link back and comment telling me that you did so
3) Tweet about it
I suppose I should have officially mentioned that I am on twitter now and you can follow me @KendraForrest.
The contest will go until Friday, June 11 night at 11:59 PST. Winners will be announced this weekend.
I like to use yogurt as a breakfast food, normally in place of milk. It's fun to mix with cereal. 🙂
I would love to try this!
