I have to admit, when approached about this campaign, I was a little leery. I'm pretty picky about my dessert bars and there have been very few of these pre-packaged treats that I've liked. So, of course, I went to my local Publix with my $0.50 off 1 box coupon and grabbed of all three varieties to test out before accepting this campaign. After all, I can't peddle something I don't like, right? I was lucky and they were even on sale for 2 for $4, so I got a double bargain! I think it was meant to be! :)
I eagerly took pictures of them all...
and even neatly laid them out to decide which one I would try first....
I dove straight in for the chocolate cookie bar and lo and behold, much to my delight, it.was.DELICIOUS! Pure Indulgent bliss in a bar, Betty Crocker Sweet Rewards bars are a sweet new treat to cater to your cravings. :)
Then I taste-tested the other two. Of course, I HAD to, right? :) and found that they were quite tasty as well. Loved the crunch of the candy-coated chocolate chips and the caramel center of the brownie, but the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar was definitely MY favorite.
The only down side to these bars is that THEY MAY CONTAIN PEANUT INGREDIENTS which meant that, sadly, Little Sis could not partake in this taste-testing. She got her own little treat and the rest of us (my hubby and Big Sis who is allergic to tree nuts but not peanuts) decided it was best to do our taste-testing at a more discrete time.
The hubby and Big Sis both gave these bars a huge thumbs up. This is no surprise for Big Sis who has yet to meet a treat she doesn't like, haha, but it means a lot coming from the hubby, who went in for more later that night. He's usually VERY selective about how he spends his calories!
Now, as much as I like to make my family treats from scratch, that just isn't always possible. And sometimes, at night, when I'm relaxing, watching tv w/ the hubby after the kids are in bed, I just want a little something sweet (which is almost always followed by a little something salty, haha), so it's reeeeeally nice to just be able to walk over to the pantry and have a little something sweet, a little something yummy and a little something very easy to stuff my face with. :)
The next day, I helped myself to a little "sweet reward" while the hubby was at work and the girls were busy with other things. After what's been a crazy busy time of managing contractors working our our Outdoor Living Project, very slowly recovering from a tailbone injury and just having come back from a week's vacation to first Savannah for Big Sis' soccer tournament in the freezing cold (yes, it can snow in Savannah and kids will still play soccer in 32 degree weather!) and then Disney for a few days, I couldn't wait to sit down to a quite moment of coffee, cookie bar and solitude. Aaaaaah, it was the PERFECT combination.
