Nature Valley Bars Review and Giveaway

I was delighted to find out that Nature Valley was sending me an awesome prize pack.  I had not known that their company was helping the National Parks by donating $0.10 per specially marked wrapper that was returned to them.  What a great way to help the National Parks!


We tested the Nature Valley Bars and were amazed.  I honestly thought that my son wouldn't eat anything that wasn't high in sugar, but he liked the bars.  He even wanted another one for snack.  I enjoyed the taste of the bar too.  They were filling for my son and I as well.  I will definitely be getting these more often for breakfast and snacks!

This year, the National Parks Project will focus on restorative work at Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Biscayne National Parks.
To get involved, simply purchase a box of specially marked Nature Valley Bars and mail in your wrappers to the address below:
National Parks Project
PO Box 450328
El Paso, TX 88545-0328

  123. My glimpse of the Grand Canyon is almost memorable. Just as I dared to get close to the edge, I was jerked and told to get back in the car. My teenage brother had pushed my mom's (no you don't) button. It may have been his comment, about being dragged all over creation to look at another hole in the ground...
