Trix Swirls Giveaway


Trix has a new Limited Edition variety, Trix Swirls. You get two flavors in each piece of Trix. These are really good, I had to hide them from the girls so I could get the first bowl, lol.

I am lucky enough to give away two prize packs or Trix Swirls and everything you see above to two lucky winners thanks to MyBlogSpark! Entries will be taken until Saturday, July 25th at noon CST. At that time I will pick two winners and announce them. You will have 48 hours to get back to me with your mailing information or a new winner will be picked. US residents only.

Entries - you need to leave an answer from your CHILD with your name and email address if you are anonymous, or just your blogger account if you have one, of how THEY think the swirls were made on the cereal.

You can earn a second entry by tweeting about it and making sure you add @jane4girls in your tweet.

You can earn another entry by following my blog on facebook through the networked button on the front page of the blog.

You can earn another entry by subscribing to my blog through feedburner.

Leave a comment for each of these actions after they are done, for a total of up to 4 entries per person.

These look delicious. My daughter is young so when I showed her the picture and asked her how she thought the swirls were made on the cereal she told me "fruit twist". To cute for a 20mos old.

My daughter said that they must have a lady that paints the swirls on with a brush and food coloring.

Yes, we did recently paint sugar cookies with food coloring lol.

Mine think they must have a big machine, like those bingo things that the little balls spin around in. Uh yeah, lol They drop the cereal in and crank the handle as some food color is dropped in with it. It could happen I guess!!

Now I have to find some on sale for them to try! Thanks!

I asked my 6 year old daughter how they are made and she told me that when they are white they mix it with 2 different colors and then swirl it together.

Heather said...

From Caleb, age 12

Aliens were eating some yogurt. Then, the aliens through up on the cereal. Alien throw up is REALLY tasty. So the cereal makers cloned the cereal with throw up on it, and came up with the cereal on it.

Heather said...

Forgot my email:

plantlady at momistheboss.org

For Caleb's opinion.

Treva said...

My 5 year old explained that they put two colors next to each other in a pan, then shaped it into a circle, and then baked them.

Anonymous said...

My son says that they just dump in different colors and they twirl each other around.

My daughter says she thinks they're mixed together, but since you can't believe what commercials say, they might just be painted. :)

My daughter said God made the swirls! I guess since she knows He made everything else, it's all a 2 year old could think of!

I asked my kids if they have seen the new trix on TV. And of course they had. :) My five year old said they take the balls and frost them up. And after they dry they get all swirly. Then they make your eyes swirly and turn you upside down. Then the whole world turns into a trix swirl. :) Whew! What a mouth full.

Trix is one of those few cereals I have found for the gluten-free population so our family is a happy supporter of Trix. Asked the five year old how the swirls got on trix and the response was: the man at the factory painted them." That man must be busy. lol.

I asked my five and seven year olds, and their answer was that they were sitting on the merry-go-round and got all mixed up like they do at the park.

The five year old has decided that they were "probably just running low on some stuff so they just mixed them together to get more for everybody"(probably has seen us do this at home a time or two lol).
