So exited!!! I really want to try the choc PB or the trail mix bars especially! I also am dying to try their granola planks one of these days!

I will add you to my blogroll right now, and mention this contest in my next post!


lauren January 14, 2009 at 1:25 pm

oh cool, I would love to try these!


Erin January 14, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Just posted a link back here! I read through Honest Foods selection and since I am a grilling/hot sauce freak the Lazy Kettle Brand liquid smoke sounds intriguing. It give the smoky favor of a grill even if your cooking indoors. And it’s only $5.00. Where has this brand been all my life?


Maggie January 14, 2009 at 1:40 pm

My fave is the apple ginger spice square :) Yum!! You’re on my blogroll, too.


glidingcalm January 14, 2009 at 1:56 pm

i think im one of the only bloggers who has YET to try any honest food products! id love to try the choc. pb or the trail mix! the blueberry bar sounds amazing too!


dailygoods January 14, 2009 at 2:26 pm

yayy awesome giveaway! i’ve never tried honest foods products but have been drooling over them seeing them in everyones posts! i’ve been dying to try the blueberry vanilla crackle planks! I linked back :) thanks !


Sanja January 14, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Are those bars vegan? Because then I would love to try them!

And you forgot the ‘-‘ in the links to the Honest Foods website…


Sanja January 14, 2009 at 2:29 pm

Found the list of ingredients on their website – they are vegan…


Mara January 14, 2009 at 2:31 pm

I haven’t tried honest food products either, GC!!!
I would love to try the Food Mill Peanut Butter, or any of the 1849 sauces!


Andrea [bella eats] January 14, 2009 at 2:33 pm

Thanks for hosting the contest, Angela! I’ve never tried anything by Honest Foods, but have been excited to read your reviews and Kath’s reviews of their products. I really want to try one of their squares crumbled up on oatmeal, I’m guessing the cranberry lemon zest would be my favorite!

I’m a little confused by their website though…are all of those products really under the Honest Foods brand?

I just added you to my blogroll, which coincidentally I was planning to do today anyway! Seriously. :) And I’m working on a post that will be up in a few hours that will mention the contest. I hope I win! :)


Krista January 14, 2009 at 2:39 pm

OK, girlfriend! You are already on my blogroll and I will be telling all my readers about this fabulous contest in today’s post with a link to your site!

I’ve tried the bars and they ROCK! I’d LOVE to try the Honest Foods granola planks…..any flavour would do!

Great contest….especially for us Canucks that can’t purchase the products here! :)


Diana January 14, 2009 at 3:36 pm

Hey Angela! So, I added you to my blogroll – you’re actually the first one to be added! I linked to the contest in my second official post! I’m sure you probably won’t see much traffic from it considering the blog was just officially born today, but hey, you never know!

I’ve never tried anything from honest foods but I would most like to try the “Food Mill’s All Natural Hand Made Peanut Butter”. Can you imagine??? Sounds like heaven to me!


Beth January 14, 2009 at 3:40 pm


I LOVE the blueberry vanilla crackle on top of my oatmeal, but I would really love to try the Country Squares!

Thank you so much for being so dedicated to the blog and for being such an inspiration! You rock!

i think i’d probably be most interested in the granola planks.


Marianne January 14, 2009 at 6:58 pm

Anything chocolate/peanut butter or cranberry/lemon sounds good in my books! Thanks for running the contest, and for allowing us Canucks to enter (since we can’t get any of the Honest Foods products up here). I’ll be linking back here later on tonight :D


Sharon January 14, 2009 at 7:54 pm

Wow, that is is so cool!

Kristin January 14, 2009 at 8:58 pm

Im curious what the sports med Doc said. How are you feeling? I’ve never had a sports related injury but I had a food related injury if you can believe that.


Sarah January 14, 2009 at 9:15 pm

sabe11 January 15, 2009 at 9:53 am

You’re on my blogroll and linked in a post. :)

I haven’t tried any Honest Foods products, but they all look delicious (and the blogging world certainly enjoys them)! I would most like to try the Cran Lemon Zest Country Square and the Maple Almond Crunch Granola Planks.

Thanks for hosting the contest!


Ruthanne January 15, 2009 at 9:58 am

I’ve only had the Trail Mix and it was wonderful. It’s the only one available at my local store and I would love to try the other flavors.


Melissa January 15, 2009 at 10:10 am

I haven’t tried any Honest Foods products because sadly they don’t sell them in my area :(

I would love to try any of the products but especially the squares and planks!!!

I would love to download it if you could please, please please pass along the name of what it is! Thank you so much! Oh, and your blog is great – you are adorable!


Deb January 15, 2009 at 1:01 pm

Becca A January 15, 2009 at 1:25 pm

I’ve never seen the country squares before….I’m a ginger lover so the apple ginger spice sounds awesome to me (but they all sound good). Love your blog and will be adding you to my blogroll momentarily and will link back to this post once my daily post is up :)

Lara January 15, 2009 at 3:37 pm

Hi Angela! I am so excited about this giveaway because I am in the UK and we never get to be part of the contests!
You’ve been on my blogroll for a while ;) Hmmm let’s see–I really want to try the Choco P’Nut Butter square. It just seems like a sneaky way to satisfy a sweet tooth while still being healthy. I haven’t tried any of their products since I am not at home in the US, but I am dying to do so!!
Thank you for hosting this–I know you could easily keep them for yourself so it’s really cool you are sharing the love ;)
P.S. I’m linking to you in tonight’s post!

Meredith January 15, 2009 at 8:01 pm

Great contest! I added you to my blogroll and linked back to the contest post!
I would love to try the chocolate/pb squares — could there be a better combo? :)


ann_was_here January 15, 2009 at 11:10 pm

Added you to my blogroll and blogged about the contest here:


The Honest Foods bars look amazing, I love wholesome, hearty, whole grain foods and snacks. I most want to try the Farmer’s Trail Mix Country Squares… i love the variety of ingredients in there (sesame seeds, walnuts, raisins, dried cranberry, etc)!


Kim January 15, 2009 at 11:10 pm

i love granola, so i definitely want to try the maple granola!


Elina January 16, 2009 at 8:50 am

What a great giveaway! I’ve been dying to try the granola planks but can’t find them anywhere. Their website says they sell it at WF and Wild Oats but seriously I’ve searched and searched and searched with no luck. Maybe this is my chance to try it now! :)

Btw, I really love your blog! I went in for the goods, but now I’m definitely sticking around!! :D


Jen January 16, 2009 at 11:02 am

Hi Angela! I think your site is great. I have not tried these yet – but they look delicious. I most want to try the Choco P’Nut Square. I hope you are feeling better.

I would love to try the Choco P’nut Butter bars! I can’t seem to find Honest Foods where I live and would love to try them before ordering a case online! Thanks!


Natalie Rae January 16, 2009 at 6:10 pm

We don’t have Honest Foods in Seattle. I have never even seen the label/company before. Great to find new resources! The Country Squares look so good!


limberkimbers January 16, 2009 at 8:01 pm

You were already on my blogroll but I’ve just posted & linked to this entry.

I would love to find Honest Food products around where I live but who knows where and when that would be! I’m a fan of anything chocolate so the chocolate & pb bar looks good to me :D


Dagne January 16, 2009 at 9:10 pm

I’d love to try their Farmer’s Trail Mix Country square. Sounds tasty!


Michelle January 16, 2009 at 9:18 pm

I have never tried Honest Foods products….but I would love to try any of the “planks”!! If I can eat anything in a plank form….I would be in heaven:)


Kris January 16, 2009 at 10:31 pm

Choco P’Nut Country Squares are for me!!! Have you tried it?
