Heeelllooooooo everyone!

It was so much fun doing this contest. :)

It took a looong time to go through each entry and make sure that it met the criteria of a successful entry. Luckily, being a researcher, I am used to doing this monotonous work!

After that was done, I wrote all the names on a piece of paper and mix them up and pulled one out:

Thank you to everyone who participated!!! :D I have emailed the winner to confirm.


Don’t worry, there is another chance to win more great stuff! In fact, every week for the next while, I will be holding a fabulous contest.

I have yet to try the honest foods bars but I think a mocha nut flavored country square would be a great addition :-) Mostly because I just ate some mocha nut fudge!

I live in the U.S.!


eatinnyc January 17, 2009 at 5:59 pm

Ok, let’s try this. I think an amayyyzing combination would be pomegranate, cranberry and pistachio. :)

Thanks for all of the amazing contests! I will put it on my blog (albeit not highly trafficked QUITE yet… :) )


Lara January 17, 2009 at 6:21 pm

I love the contests :)
I live in the UK and I would love to see an Honest Foods bar with a Vanilla Cupcake flavor. I’m not sure how they would make it healthy…maybe with yogurt and other natural sweeteners, but wouldn’t it be brilliant? :)
I’ll be linking back to this on my next post! Can’t wait to read everyone’s ideas…


Jen January 17, 2009 at 6:27 pm

pomegranates are absolutely amazing!


Katy G. January 17, 2009 at 10:07 pm

One of my favorite cakes is called Hummingbird cake which is a combination of crushed pineapple, banana, walnuts, raisins, and shredded carrot (though I think the carrot might have been my mom’s addition) and cream cheese frosting. So I think a Hummingbird Country Square would be awesome.

Congrats to Jen for winning the other contest!


Lacey January 17, 2009 at 10:18 pm

I live in the US

I think: Coconut Maple Pecan (dried coconut and sugared pecans)
or Almond Berry Medley (blueberry & raspberry with almonds)


missbee. January 17, 2009 at 10:57 pm

chocolate pistachio bar!


bobbi January 17, 2009 at 10:58 pm

Diana January 18, 2009 at 9:41 am

Hey Angela! I would love to see Neal Brothers come out with a Yogurt Dipped Pretzel Nugget – yummy! Also, a Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Sauce would be great too! I just looked up all the stores near me that carry their stuff and WOW – it’s all over the place! I’ll have to pick some up next time I’m shopping! I live in Ottawa, ON, Canada!!!!! I will link back to the contest for you!


marafaye January 18, 2009 at 9:43 am

Fun contest!!!

I’d say that S’Mores would be an amazing flavor for those country squares ;)


Jen January 18, 2009 at 10:15 am

Hi Angela!
Fellow Canadian here! The weather in Edmonton today is actually +11! After 2 weeks of – 30 this is a TREAT!
I think Neal Brothers should make a few organic salad dressings, balsamic, sun dried tomatoe etc:) YUM


Erin January 18, 2009 at 10:24 am

I reeeeally wanna try the cran-lemon zest ones. It’s my dream granola bar. I’m from the US too!

Thank you for organizing these contests!

…and I linked back:)


Katy G. January 18, 2009 at 11:11 am

Oh, yeah. I forgot to write that I’m from the US (Pennsylvania). Just so you don’t have to match up my comments, mine was the one suggesting a Hummingbird cake country square.


Trisha January 18, 2009 at 12:14 pm

I just have to say that I recently started reading your blog and I love it! I live in Canada as well. I think Neal brothers should make some more vegan foods, such as vegan parmesean cheese.
Thanks for writing such a great blog!


Anne P January 18, 2009 at 2:31 pm

Ooooooooooooo pick me pick me!!!

I think they should make a “pumpkin cinnamon stick” country square. I’m obsessed with anything pumpkin and cinnamon!

I’m American, but living in the Czech Republic at the moment! :)


melissa January 18, 2009 at 3:49 pm

I’m in NY, USA. :)
Love your blog. I’ve been following it for awhile.

I think they should make a coconut blueberry square. I love cupcakes this flavor and often make my oats this flavor also!


Catie January 18, 2009 at 4:15 pm

I think a chai tea spice would be an interesting one or maybe a maple nut bar!

I’m from the U.S.


Stephanie January 18, 2009 at 4:21 pm

Yey a giveaway!
I’m in London, Ontario and I think Neal Brothers should make a healthy blue cheese dressing if there is such a thing


Lori January 18, 2009 at 5:09 pm

I would love to see a Chai flavored bar! Yum! Or a Lemon Poppyseed.

I’m in the US in New York


Kristie January 18, 2009 at 5:45 pm

I’d love to see the Neal Brothers create more salad dressing varieties. The flavours they have sound awesome but I’d love to see something more along the savoury side, some kind of garlicy vinaigrette! And maybe some flavoured tortillas, like cheddar! Yum.

I’m in Canada!


Celeste January 18, 2009 at 5:53 pm

I live in the U.S. – so…I visited Honest Foods.
I think they should make a Strawberries and Cream flavor!


Chloe January 18, 2009 at 5:54 pm

I live in the USA….

How about a Banana Bread flavored bar?


Gloria January 18, 2009 at 5:55 pm

How about a Blueberry Bar?

I’m a U.S. citizen.


Sophia January 18, 2009 at 6:54 pm

Sourdough pretzels.

I live in Canada.


Melissa January 18, 2009 at 8:46 pm

Organic caramel corn! I love that stuff :)

I live in Canada & have mentioned you over at

Great contest! Keep ’em coming!


hareandtortoise January 18, 2009 at 9:24 pm

I think Neal Brothers should make flatbreads.
I’m Canadian – drop by Hare and Tortoise and say hi!


Sarah January 18, 2009 at 10:15 pm

How is there not already a banana bread or carrot cake square? or key lime-graham? or, ooooh, red velvet? ok, i am going to make a decision and say that honest foods need to make an orange poppyseed square, yum! (p.s. i’m in the u.s. – nyc!)

I’ll link to your contest on my next post …


haya January 18, 2009 at 11:01 pm

i think they should conquer the cracker world! i love crackers (probably because i really really love cheese and am always looking for something tasty to accompany my cheese).

i am canadian! i have proven this with over 4 hours of hard shoveling this weekend! good god. is it spring yet? i can’t believe that it was warmer in inuvik, NWT this weekend than it was in toronto.


moonduster January 19, 2009 at 3:53 am

I think they should have ginger & pumpkin flavour next, or possibly cinnamon-apple.

I am a UK resident.

(I will mention your contest in my blog too.)


Amanda January 19, 2009 at 8:27 am

A delicious combination would be a dry version of a banana split – dried bananas, chocolate chips, yogurt chips, peanuts, and dried cherries.

I live in the US.


julz January 19, 2009 at 9:04 am


(wohhhhh they sound KILLA!)





Dana January 19, 2009 at 11:19 am

I think peanut butter apple would be a great combo! :-)

I live in the US.



SarahF January 19, 2009 at 11:58 am

I think if Neal Brothers were to make whole grain tortilla chips it would be amazing-still not healthy but at least a way to be a little bit better!

I live in Canada (and you have my sympathy for all the snow-luckily I’m out West and it’s FINALLY nice out, which by nice out I obviously mean -4)


kate January 19, 2009 at 12:21 pm

my new obsession is calimyrna figs, so i’d love to see a bar with those! maybe mixed with cranberries?

i live in the US, west coast girl!!


mel H January 19, 2009 at 12:30 pm

I have not been able to find the bars yet, but I think a brownie flavor would be amazing!! I live in the US !! take care


Leila January 19, 2009 at 1:43 pm

Didn’t read the other responses yet, so hope this isn’t a repeat, but I LOVE the Neal Brothers organic pasta sauces, I even use it as a pizza sauce. But I think the next product they should come out with is an organic BBQ sauce line, could include flavours like hot & spicy, honey & garlic, Asian flare with worschire & soy sauce, Indian flare with Masala spice, I could go on. These would be great marinades for meats and soy products alike.

I live in Canada.


Shelly January 19, 2009 at 1:58 pm

I think a peaut butter brownie flavor would be delicious… I live in the US !!


Hangry Pants January 19, 2009 at 2:24 pm

I live in the U.S.

My idea for a new flavor is … chai!


Zoe January 19, 2009 at 3:28 pm

I live in the US…
I would love to see a banana caramel, or maybe chocolate berries (cherries, raspberries & cranberries)



Bek January 19, 2009 at 4:18 pm

I live in the US and want to see some Honest Foods Chocolate Covered Strawberry bars!


Raspberry Runner January 19, 2009 at 6:48 pm

I would love a Pineapple Macadamia Nut bar or an Apricot Almond bar or a Raspberry Cinnamon Walnut bar…I could go on, but I guess I was really once supposed to list one! I live in the US.


briana January 19, 2009 at 7:10 pm

I think they should have a apple peanut butter or banana pb flavored one. I live in Arizona!


limberkimbers January 19, 2009 at 7:27 pm

I’m Canadian –

I think it would be great if the Neal Brothers came out with some different kinds of organic pastas to go along with theit sauces! Even better, some fresh pastas would be fab.

I’ve mentioned this in my post from today.

Thanks for the opportunity to play :D


Marianne January 19, 2009 at 8:19 pm

Canadian, right here, from the West Coast!

I would like to see some fruit salsas from Neal Brothers – that was actually the first thing I was looking for when I went to their site, to see if they had some sort of tropical fruit salsa. Perhaps with mango or pineapple…yum!

I also think a line of fancy/flavoured mustards would be awesome – not only would it compliment their pretzels, but you would be able to use them in all sorts of things like salad dressings, sandwiches, etc.

I also think they should get their products on the west coast (ie: Victoria), and make them available for sale online :D

I’ll be linking to your post tonight!


Hayley January 19, 2009 at 10:14 pm

Thanks for the great giveaway! I live in the US, and I think a Banana Walnut flavor would be awesome. They could give it a clever name like “Monkey Mix” or something like that.


adrianna January 19, 2009 at 10:46 pm

they all sound damn good…

how about coconut, almond, cranberry mix?! w/ dark chox icing.


Shay January 20, 2009 at 8:30 am

I think that a pumpkin, white chocolate macadamia nut combo would be yummy! I’m a US resident.


Nikki January 20, 2009 at 10:32 am

Hi, I have just recently started reading your blog and I love it, I think you are very inspirational!
I would like to see Neal Brothers with a line or organic flavored mayonnaise (ex. sundried tomato, cucumber dill, etc..) yum!

I am from North Bay, ON CANADA


Leah January 20, 2009 at 3:04 pm

I’m Canadian!

I would love to see a Balsamic salad dressing (it’s my fav!).

I also second what someone else said about pretzels.

How about some museli cereal?
Or some new healthy bars!

Ok, now i’m getting greedy!


Eliza January 20, 2009 at 3:41 pm

Hey! I think Honest foods should come up with a pb and banana flavor–the best combo!

I live in the US!


Kimber January 20, 2009 at 4:49 pm

Oh, I would LOVE to try Honest Foods’ products! I think they should try some sort of Berry Blast flavour in the country squares. Or better yet, a pumpkin spice country square. :D

I live in the US too.


Niki F January 20, 2009 at 4:54 pm

Another Canadian here!

Just found your site and am enjoying it a lot! Great stuff! And an added bonus that you are Canadian!

I think Neal Brothers should make a caramel popcorn or a kettle corn. LOVE both of those!


Niki F January 20, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Another Canadian here!

About to post about the contest on my blog site.


Holly January 20, 2009 at 9:04 pm

Hi Ange! The picture is stunning! Your photographer is so talented :o)

I think that a gingerbread spice bar or a cocoanut apricot flavor would be great!

I live in the US (Philly, PA)


seeleelive January 20, 2009 at 10:46 pm

Hi angela! i i live in the US..philly, PA! i think a walnut flax combo would be yummy!


Kim January 20, 2009 at 11:45 pm

I think they should make a honey-roasted peanut butter flavor. Pretty simple but so good!

I live in the US (CA).


Katie January 21, 2009 at 8:40 am

Hey! Thanks for another great contest opportunity.

I live in the US.

I would love to see a Cranberry White Chocolate square from Honest Foods.


Mariel January 21, 2009 at 11:12 am

I live in the US

I think that banana coconut would be a great new flavor!

Thanks for doing the contest :)


sals January 21, 2009 at 1:40 pm

how about dark chocolate walnut?? (i’m in the us)


elise January 21, 2009 at 2:57 pm

i think they should do a coconut date and fig flavored square, YUM!

i live in NYC (US)


Kris January 21, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Lora January 21, 2009 at 4:57 pm

living in US..and I would love to try the choc pb flavor of honest foods :)


Becca A January 21, 2009 at 5:01 pm

They should definitely make something utilizing banana…you can’t lose with banana (well unless its that artificial flavoring stuff, yuck).

I live in the US


Maria January 21, 2009 at 5:51 pm

I’m from the US, and I think a flax banana walnut flavored bar would be amazing.


Marcy January 21, 2009 at 7:48 pm

This is a great contest! Thank you Angela & Honest Foods. My suggestion for a new flavor is blueberry lemon zest to accompany the cranberry lemon zest. In fact, pomegranate lemon zest and blackberry lemon zest would really round out the selection!

I live in the US.



Matt January 21, 2009 at 10:25 pm

i think a peanut butter banana one would be awesome!

i live in alabama!


Melissa January 21, 2009 at 10:40 pm

I realized I screwed up on my previous entry. I think some kind of “carrot cake” bar would taste yummy. Maybe with some coconut and raisins it it…

I still live in the USA. LOL


Katie R January 21, 2009 at 11:09 pm

Honest Foods needs to develop a pumpkin spice square or a carrot cake square (with frosting!). I love my orange veggies :) BTW, I live in the US–CA to be more specific. Thanks!


Anna January 22, 2009 at 12:07 am

I would love to see a peach or mango salsa…or mango chutney….

I am Canadian!!


Michelle January 22, 2009 at 7:58 am

Hi Angela:) I Live in the US. I love maple and brown sugar oatmeal….so using that logic, I think they NEED to make a country square in that flavor!!!! Thanks so much for keeping me motivated *Michelle*


Jennifer January 22, 2009 at 10:55 am

I live in the US. I love love love those bars, and I think those suggestions of a carrot cake one would be SO YUMMY! With walnuts, raisins, apple chunks, lots of carrot, and coconut… Mmmm :)


sue January 22, 2009 at 12:33 pm

I’d love to see a Dark Chocolate Blueberry flavor :)

I’m in the US (Mass!) Thanks for hosting this contest!


Betsy January 22, 2009 at 3:05 pm

The Apple Ginger Spice Country Squares sound great!

Something with pears and pecans with be good.

I live in the USA.


Runeatrepeat January 22, 2009 at 7:24 pm

I’m in the US. I am all for any flavor combo with dark chocolate and pumpkin :) 2 of my faves!


Dana January 22, 2009 at 7:44 pm

I love dates and chocolate soooo that would be my bar!


Dana January 22, 2009 at 7:45 pm

Didn’t mean to leave 2 you can take one away but I am from the USA


Natalie January 22, 2009 at 9:39 pm

I’m in the US…Missouri to be exact :)

While all of the flavors sound delicious, I’d like a cherry dark chocolate bar. YUM!
