Keeping Cool in School; Go-Gurt Review & Giveaway (Closed)

It’s that time of year again, when parents are thinking about the kids heading back to school. This year, I have made a pledge to myself and my children to make healthier choices, especially with packed lunch. This year there will be no baggies of chips, or cookies, only fruit, yogurt and veggies. Sorry kids, but I promise to make sure you enjoy everything I pack for you!

giveawayAnyone who has ever done any grocery shopping as saw Go-Gurt by Yoplait Yogurt. I know when I am looking at yogurt, my kids always ask for a box of Go-Gurt.

Go-GURT® brings kids the wholesome goodness of real Yoplait® yogurt and unstoppable fun every day! Go-Gurt is packaged in tubes that is perfect for on-the-go snacks or lunchbox treats. Go-Gurt is specially made to freeze and thaw, keeping the yogurt, and the rest of lunch, cool until lunch time.

With Go-Gurt yogurt in your child’s lunch box, you can feel confident that there will be no snack trading at lunch time since Go-Gurt has a taste and texture that kids love! Moms can feel good about packing Go-Gurt each morning since each portable tube contains a good source of calcium and vitamin D, providing a wholesome addition to a well-balanced lunch. Available in a variety of cool, fun flavors like Strawberry Splash and Chill-Out Cherry, Go-Gurt will quickly become a refreshing classroom favorite.

I was recently sent a back to school package from Go-Gurt that included a coupon for a free box of Go-Gurt and some cool back-to-school items. When my package arrived, I got a box of Go-Gurt in a new flavor for my kids to try. I decided to get the Strawberry Splash/Berry Blue Blast flavors, since the kids normally pick the Chill-Out Cherry or pick based solely based on the character on the box!

All 5 kids got their own Go-Gurt to try out during lunch and no one had a drop left, not even the 11 month old! I did have to help him, as he is to little to hold the tube and squeeze it, but he ate every drop! I tasted the Strawberry Splash, and it is really good! When I buy yogurt for myself I normally purchase Cherry or Strawberry flavors, and the Strawberry Splash is not just kid approved, it’s mom approve too!

Honestly, the only complaint I have is the size of the boxes. Most are only 8 tubes, which I know is perfect for smaller families, but with 5 kids, a box only last me a day. I would love to see family-size or over-sized boxes of Go-Gurt. If you have a large family (like we do), you have to buy several boxes, where if more economical sized boxes were available, we could not only purchase more but reduce the packaging waste too!

To celebrate heading back to school, Go-Gurt is offering one of my readers a “Keeping Cool In School” Gift Pack! The Gift pack included a coupon for a free sample of Go-Gurt*, an insulated lunch tote, mini water bottle, sandwich keeper, cool breeze pen fan, and some fun school supplies for the new school year.
