Green Christmas GIVEAWAY-Explorers Bounty-CLOSED!




Once in a while a company comes along that grabs my attention. It takes a lot to impress me. I have seen a lot of companies claiming to be green and rarely do they make an impression on me. Explorer's Bounty not only has held my attention but they have impressed me greatly.

"At Explorer's Bounty, we journey back to the days of classical antiquity when adventurers crisscrossed the globe in search of the finest commodities. Our mission, however, is not to find unspoiled land or seafarer shortcuts. We're looking for sustainable farming and organic products worth writing home about. Farms that employ traditional methods are hard to come by, despite our wanderlust for finding them. Despite the pressure to take the easy route, every Explorer's Bounty product is USDA certified organic. From field to shelf, we bring you products that are grown, processes and packaged in accordance with the highest organic stands. We believe we must go back to the past to preserve the future."

They are absolutely right. Their products are worth writing home about! For review, I received some of their puffed fruit, coffee and tea. The coffee and teas were delicious but the puffed fruit stole the show. Dexter, being 20 months old, can sometimes be a picky eater. Their puffed fruit is not only organic but they are made without any added sweeteners. The star of the show is the fruit itself. They make dried bananas, plantains and pineapple. I really loved the pineapple myself and Dexter took to the bananas. The puffed fruit was crunchy and different. I love how convenient it is to carry fruit around to feed him as a healthy alternative to fruit snacks. I would never give Dexter a real banana to run around the living room with. But Explorer's Bounty puffed fruit, heck yeah! I give him a bowl and watch him mow! Its great.

Explorer's Bounty also makes chocolate covered cashews that I am dying to try. I am a nut freak and these sound great. One lucky winner will be awarded with a WONDERFUL prize from Explorer's Bounty. One lucky winner will receive a Holiday Sharing Basket containing their coffee, teas and crackers. This is a $50 prize!

In order to win you must visit Explorer's Bounty and come back here and tell me something that you learned from their site.
