**Entries are now closed. Winner to be announced on Nov 10th!**

As we head into the season of indulgences … holiday parties, gifts of fudge, cookie parties, gingerbread houses, appetizer platters, and well, you get the idea … I thought a little nutrition might be in order. While you can’t negate that rum-spiked punch and those decadent truffles, you can start your day off right with a good dose of organic, whole-grain deliciousness.

Not a breakfast person? This prize package also lends itself useful in creating wonderful recipes, from crispy coatings to delicious snack bars (of course, some recipes are forthcoming … perhaps a week’s worth of inspirations?). How you use this jam-packed gift is up to you, in fact, the winner even gets to choose their prizes!

One of you will win a two month’s supply (8 full-size boxes) of U.S. Mills brand cereal products of your choosing – hot or cold; Erewhon, New Morning, or Uncle Sam’s brands; flaked, sweetened, or in a bar format; gluten-free, vegan, and/or soy-free – they are all available to you!

But wait, there is more! The winner will also receive:

  • A Patagonia T-Shirt from U.S. Mills
  • A Convenient Little Coupon Keeper (perhaps with some awesome cereal coupons included?) – I have one, and it is so perfectly sized for trips to the store.

If I could win (which I can’t), I would go for the following assortment:

  1. Erewhon Organic Corn Flakes (so verstile) – see my review
  2. Erewhon Organic Crispy Brown Rice (a must for no-bake goodies) – review and recipes on deck!
  3. Erewhon Strawberry Crisp Cereal (we devoured this) – see my review
  4. Erewhon Kamut® Flakes (so unique, I loved them) – see my review
  5. New Morning Original Oatios (love the simplicity, but the Fruit-e-O’s are probably yummy too) – see my review
  6. Erewhon Maple Spice Instant Oatmeal (warm, comforting AND low in sugar) – see my review
  7. Uncle Sam Instant Oatmeal (cool weather, hearty goodness) – see my review
  8. New Morning Cocoa Crispy Rice (for my choco-holic husband) – we haven’t tried this one yet!

But half the fun is picking your own variety pack! So …

To enter to win:

  • Leave a comment here telling me, “Which cereals and/or bars you would pick if you won?‘ Head over to the U.S. Mills website and check out the Erewhon, Uncle Sam’s, and New Morning product lines to get a gander at all of the organic and natural products you have to choose from. 
  • For an extra entry, help to spread the word about this giveaway. Tweet it, share it on Facebook, Blog about it, or email it to some of your e-buddies. Whichever way you choose, make sure you come back here and leave a second comment telling me that you did!
  • For another extra entry, share a favorite recipe that you enjoy, which contains breakfast cereal (from instant oats to crispy rice) as an ingredient. Leave an additional comment with your recipe. As promised, I will share some some of my recipes this week too!

(Bonus: As mentioned, they have numerous vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free cereals to choose from, and as far as I could tell, everything is dairy-free!)
