I won [me] & goji cereal! April 28, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — fauxhawksmommy @ 1:00 am

I recently won [me] & goji cereal from a mom’s blog at I was so excited to enter the giveaway because the cereal looked so great in Mamajoss’ review and even more excited to WIN! I couldn’t wait to get on their website ( and start creating! There were so many options to customize your cereal mix. First you choose which base you want and then add on from there. I went with a chocolate granola base with multigrain O’s then added chocolate chips, raisins, banana, macadamia nuts, and sunflower seeds. I had some reservations while I was creating my mix. I had a “trail mix” idea in my mind and wanted to make sure everything would taste good together. After choosing my mix I was so excited to name it and add a picture. I called it Mama’s Munchie Mix-Up and added a picture of Fauxhawkboy! I couldn’t think of a better label than that! My cereal arrived today while I was out. Don’t your just love your package is left in the rain? The box was sopping wet by the time I got to it and I was hoping my cereal canister was unaffected. Luckily it was just fine!

After examining the best cereal packaging I could find I didn’t hesitate to open it up and take the first taste! Wowzer! I did good! It was amazing! It was definately the best trail mix I have ever eaten, and healthy too!

It’s a great snack for me because I’m always on the go…the canister even fits into my diaper bag so I can bring it along with me wherever I go. I highly recommend trying this [me] & goji customizable cereal! They even have a 100% satisfaction guarentee so if you don’t like your mix they will replace it without charge to you. You can also go to to enter for chance to win free cereal for a year just by telling your friends about [me] & goji. Good Luck!
