It's a "GNU" Giveaway!

The peeps at Gnu (My friends in Fiber!) were nice enough to send me bars galore and I'd like to share them ALL with you! Before I get to the contest details you know I have to tell you all a little bit about these filling, all natural, tasty bars.

My bar pack included this cool flyer that explains all about the GNU bars.

GNU BARS ARE:

* High Fiber: 12 g per Bar
* Made with 6 whole grains
* Only 130-140 calories
* Made with ORGANIC Whol eWheat and Kamut Flurs
* Made with Aluminum-Free Baking Powder
* Loaded with both Soluable and Insoluable Fiber
* VEGAN!!!
* Kosher

GNU BARS HAVE:

* NO cholesterol
* NO Trans Fats

It doesn't get ANY CLEANER/HEALTHIER than that. The BEST part is that depending on the flavor, majority are only TWO Weight Watchers Points each!!
