Does a Chance to Win up to $500 Sound Good? Play Find Your Fortune! #WIN5X

Does a Chance to Win up to $500 Sound Good? Play Find Your Fortune!

 

For my family this time of the year is ‘birthday season.’  There is eight birthdays in the next six weeks.  Halloween and Christmas are right around the corner. I just spend money on Back-to-School.  Halloween costumes are sometimes a hefty price.  What does this mean?  Buying gifts and lots of them.  For Christmas in my family we do a ‘pick a name’ thing with all the adults.  That way we only need to buy one adult gift.  But there is still 1/2 a dozen children to buy for.  Best friends and close friends and other family that far away. If I won $500 I would definitely put it towards Christmas.

Do you want this chance to win?  You don’t have to spend the money on Christmas, like me.  You can use it for travel, bills, to put away for a rainy day or what ever your heart desires.

Right now you can enter to win.  Play Find Your Fortune, and get a chance to win up to $500!  This month, you can win 5x the value of your airtime or select gift card you buy, up to $500 by playing Find Your Fortune at any participating Southern California Albertsons.

Windfall

Through the end of September, you will receive a print at checkout with a code for each airtime or select gift card you purchase. To see if you’re a winner, enter yourcodes at  Albertson’s Find Your Fortune.  You’ll know instantly if you’ve Found Your Fortune, and will receive your prize direct via email. You can play up to 5 times every day, and with 10 winners a day, you’ll want to stock up on airtime and gift cards for yourself, and everyone you know!
The Find Your Fortune program ends September 30th. There is no purchase necessary to enter or win. There is a limit of 5 codes per transaction. Visit Albertson’s Find Your Fortune or official rules and participating stores.

PB Crave #Giveaway

groupshot_ingredients

 

Hearing about the PB Crave flavors made me excited to try them. But of course they weren’t at our Wal-Mart at the time. I figured my two year old would love the CoCo Banana but she’s just like her mommy. We love the Cookie Nookie the best of course none of ours had the chocolate chips because they melted. But that didn’t bother us they all tasted great and were the creamiest peanut butter I’ve ever had. We forgot to stir it up before we tried them which was gross because the oil separated so my suggestion is to make sure you stir them. Even though these flavors have honey I never tasted it but I love honey anyway.

Razzle Dazzle: Peanut butter twisted with natural raspberry flavor, white & dark chocolate chips, and wild honey.

 

My Opinion: I mostly got a strong taste of raspberry which I’ve never been a fan of. So of course I’m not a huge fan of this but it did taste good. My boyfriend is a huge raspberry fan and has been eating it like crazy if that tells you how good it is.

Cookie Nookie: Peanut butter twisted with natural cookie dough flavor, milk chocolate chips, and wild honey.

 

My Opinion: To me this tasted just like chocolate chip cookies. Which I love and my little girl who really isn’t a big fan of peanut butter came back for seconds. This is something we all could agree on and I wouldn’t mind picking up more at the store.

Choco Choco: Peanut butter twisted with real Belgium chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and wild honey.

 

My Opinion: This tasted exactly like chocolate and I thought it would be pretty good with apples. This may be healthier than chocolate.

CoCo Banana: Peanut Butter twisted with natural banana flavor, chocolate chips, and wild honey.

 

My Opinion: This was our second flavor we loved. I always thought it was weird hearing how some people put bananas on their peanut butter sandwiches. But I admit after trying this peanut butter I wouldn’t mind trying it out. I love how you can taste the banana but it’s not too overwhelming.

 

I really enjoy this company especially since reading that 2% of their profit will go towards supporting project peanut butter. These peanuts are gluten free and have only natural sugars in the chocolate chips, natural fruit flavors and of course honey. Allergens would of course be peanuts, soy and milk. They have packs you can buy online or they’re also available at wal-mart super centers and cost plus world market. If you go to www.pbcrave.com you will be able to learn more and also search for a store near you.
