Shrektacular Savings ~ And a Giveaway

This giveaway is closed.

 My kids and I have enjoyed all of the Shrek movies and were eagerly awaiting the release of Shrek Forever After. Therefore, when My Blog Spark approached me about reviewing a "Shrek-tacular Savings” prize pack, I jumped at the chance.  

My kids love getting packages in the mail, but were especially excited about this one.  It was filled with two large boxes of General Mills cereals, Fruit Roll-Ups Minis snacks, Betty Crocker Brownie Mix,  a $10 Shrek-tacular Savings coupon book with fun Shrek trivia, a Shrek water squirter, a Shrek highlighter and a $25 gift card to use to purchase tickets to see the new Shrek Forever After film.  I do not usually buy Fruit Roll-Ups or Brownie Mix, so my kids were overjoyed to have those sugary treats. Wes loved the Shrek water squirters and still plays with them in the bath tub.

 Last weekend we used the gift card to go see the movie.  I am not a huge fan of sequel movies, but this one was a pleasant surprise.  In this final Shrek movie, the famous ogre has a bit of a mid-life crisis.  He longs for the days when he was feared by the local villagers.  To get one day of his old life back, Shrek agrees to and signs a contract with Rumplestilskin.  The result is much more than Shrek bargained for, but makes for a lively and creative tale.

 A Giveaway ~ My Blog Spark and General Mills are offereing one of my lucky readers a Shrek-tacular Savings Prize Pack.  To enter:  Leave me a comment telling me which Shrek character is your favorite and why.  I will randomoly select a winner on Friday, June 4.  The winner will be contacted by email and will have three days to respond or an alternate name will be selected.
