Free Cookies!

Because who doesn't like cookies? That's what I'd like to know. (Yes. I read Junie B. books way too often.)

I was asked to review a unique company called The Khaya Cookie Company. This company is dedicated to providing handmade, organic treats created by previously unemployed men and women in Khayelitsha, South Africa.




Honestly, all of that goodwill wasn't necessary to make me agree to review COOKIES for cryin out loud! But it sure did intrigue me to read more about this incredible company. If only more people were like the founder, Alicia Polak.

My family was ecstatic when I opened the box and we had 5 bags of cookies to choose from. Though the price is more than we can afford, this particular type of cookie is marketed as a gourmet treat, which I hope to be able to afford again... eventually! While my kids didn't personally care for the granola krunchi cookies, the shortbreads were all really addictive. In fact, I believe I may have hidden the Cranberry Rooibos in my dresser drawer so that they wouldn't be inhaled by anyone but myself....

Ahem.

In the meantime, you all are eligible to receive 3 free boxes of Khaya cookies to sample for youself! Simply comment below, and I'll pull the winner on Friday, May 22. Enter 2nd and 3rd comments for subscribing to my blog and for posting about this giveaway on your own blog!

**FYI, "subscribing" means getting my blog through a feed reader like Google Reader or Bloglines... :)

Don't forget to enter the McCormick & Schmick's giveaway this week as well!

OK, I totally want this one!! And I'm wondering, If I get your blog in my google reader, does that count as subscribed? I've never understood that when people talk about it.

I do, so if so, please mark me down or two chances!!

And how do you get to do this stuff?!?!?! I mean, I know you're awesome, but you must have some connections, too?

Man oh man....I'd LOVE me some free cookies! Seriously though, do tell how you got to review all of these awesome things! I'd love a peice of THAT action!

Gettysburg Mom said...

I would totally hide the cranberry cookies too. Only I hide things like that in the vegetable drawer, because nobody in my family thinks to look in there.

And I already subscribe. You didn't have to bait me with cookies. It's good bait though.

Ok, now as much as I would like to say I do not need some cookies and really I do not, after all I had a baby 6 months ago (hello baby weight!!!)
But, I am feeling like we need a treat.
Ayden is turning 6 months on the
21st and he started to crawl yesterday. We could use a treat. With all the up and down and moving Ayden from one spot to the other I figure I will burn the extra calories right off!!!
Also, we are land scaping both our front and back yard. If you could see the before you may just want to give us a case of cookies!!!

Well thank you for the oppertunity to maybe get some yummy FREE COOKIES.

Cheers, Kristin
