Nationwide Give Away & Review: A Case of Little Debbie Cloud Cakes

Little Debbie is one of the most recognizeable food names in America.  So when I got an e-mail from them asking to do a give away I was excited.  It’s one of those give aways where you know exactly what kind of prize you are getting!

They have a new type of snack cake called “Cloud Cakes.”  And they sent me a box to try so I could review them to go with the give away. 

I didn’t feel like I was the ideal candidate to review a Little Debbie snack taste-wise.  Little Debbie snacks in my head are for school lunches and kids!  And fortunately I work with an amazing bunch of kids that I thought might be willing to help me out.

Each week I teach voice at Inspiration Academy for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach.  My students (in the picture) are the most active kids I have ever seen- between dance classes, sports participation and everything else they do they burn alot of calories!  So while I don’t normally give them food as a treat I figured this one time I would be willing to get their opinion on the Little Debbie Cloud Cake.

Everyone’s initial reaction to the Cloud Cake was the same.  “It looks like a Twinkie.”   Twinkies are made by Hostess- a competitor of Little Debbie. 

The reaction to the taste was different however. 

– “Twinkies usually sort of taste like the plastic wrapping- these don’t.  They taste fresher.” 

– “They have a lemon flavor that makes them taste really unique.”

– “Yummy”  (I heard that several times).

– “I really like the cream inside- its sweet.”

– “Do you have any more?”

The reviews all the way around were positive.  Thumbs up for the new Cloud Cakes.

So are you ready to try them yourself?  Well Little Debbie has given me a CASE to give to one lucky reader.  If you don’t know (and I didn’t) a case is 12 boxes.  So it’s 120 individually wrapped Cloud Cakes.  That’s alot of school lunches, a big donation to a local food bank or whatever you would like to do with them.

You can enter up to 2 times:

Entry #1: Leave a comment on this post and tell me your favorite Little Debbie Snack Cake

Entry #2: Follow me on facebook and leave a comment on this post telling me you do

This contest will run through March 9th at midnight.  I will select the winner using random.org and notify them by e-mail.  They will have 24 hours to respond and if they do not, I will move onto another winner.

Good luck!

Making New Crayons from Old Ones!

Each week I feature a new frugal fun activity for you and your kids provided by Sharon at Mom on Dealz.  This week is a great way to use all those broken bits of crayon in the house!

Materials:
broken crayons
oven
cupcake/muffin pan

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. Gather all of the broken crayons you have in the house.
3. Spray muffin pan with PAM or line them with foil liners. (I used my oldest pan for this in hopes of having an excuse to replace it, but the crayons don’t stick so no such luck for me!)
4. Divide crayon pieces among the spaces in the pan on your preference. You can put similar colors together, seasonal colors together, primary colors together, etc.
5. Put pan in the oven. Check every 5 minutes to monitor if they are melting. Everyone’s oven is different so time will vary.
6. When crayon pieces are completely melted, remove from the oven and allow to cool. If you are in a rush, you can put them in the fridge or freezer.
7. Pop out of pan and color away with your new crayons!

Educational Usage:
1. Discuss with your child different states of matter and how the crayons went from a solid, to a liquid, and then to a solid again.
2. Discuss the blending of the colors and how different colors can combine to make new colors.
3. Use this activity to help your child review steps in a process. They can retell you the steps orally, they can draw the steps, or write them down.
4. Discuss how this activity is an example of recycling. Talk about other things that can be recycled and the benefits of recycling. Have your child draw, list, or tell you other ways to help the enviroment.
