Happy Birthday GIVE AWAY!

Today is my birthday!

And I am giving away a present.

A week or so ago I got a box in the mail from Little Debbie. It was full of their newly packaged 100 calorie packs.

Snacks in a box!

Lots of fun snacks in a box!

Who doesn’t like fun snacks in a box?

What Little Debbie doesn’t know is that I grew up on Little Debbie’s. Not that my family had tons of snacks sitting around.

We didn’t.

But WAY back in the 1970s most packaged cookies contained lard. I was raised vegetarian. Vegetarianism and lard just don’t mix.

Little Debbie’s snackcakes never had lard.

On the occasions that my mom bought packaged cookies it was always Little Debbie’s and usually the soft oatmeal sandwich cookies with the marshmellowy center.


Anyway, they said that I could give away another box.

Here is what it looks like:

It is FULL of snacks.

All you need to do to enter this 24 hour contest is to leave a comment!

Please make sure I can get a hold of you.

I will choose someone who comments during the EST hours of my birthday, January 13, 2009.

Good luck!

  62. ~Diet Goddess~ says:

    Happy birthday to you! I’m so excited to see that Little Debbie is doing 100 calorie packs! I’ve had to cut that little beeyatch out of my life because she’s a little temptress with her delicious wares. So glad to know I can let her back in when she comes calling!

  63. Happy birthday! I would be happy to share the little debbie snacks with my family. Thanks for the chance to win these!

  64. Trannyhead says:

    Hawt! Sounds delish … You know, I had this distant relative who lived near a Little Debbie plant in Virginia. And her house always smelled like Little Debbie snack cakes. Which was awesome to me as a kid. I’m not so sure if that would be awesome for an adult, but it was awesome as a kid for sure.

  65. franticallysimple says:

    If there’s no lard I’m not in danger of getting a lard-butt, am I?
    Happy Birthday!

  66. i’m a looser and sorry i’m here late, but happy birthday to you!! you are soooo lucky you can’t hear me singing happy birthday to you… b/c i suck at singing more than i suck at commenting on a more regular basis. lol 🙂

  67. Elizabeth says:

    Happy Birthday!!!
    Not that I have a “Snowball’s chance in Texas” of being “chosen”, But I do love those Oatmeal cookie cakes…and the Marshmallow pies, and the Swiss Rolls…Hmmmmm.
    Hope your Birthday was everything your little heart desired!
    Blessings, E
