Giveaway Time; Stevia In The Raw

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Alright, by now most of you have heard me mention stevia more than once. I've gotten several "what the heck is it?" comments, most of which I've stopped responding to (I'm sorry, I'm awful, I know- still love me?). Well I got in touch with the folks over at Stevia In The Raw (its a root, by the way, so not to leave you hangin'. A miracle plant that grows in the ground. I bet google could load you up on all the info you're needing to know?), and they've so generously sent me a box of their delicious all natural no calorie sweetener, to send to you.

I use stevia in everything. In tofu cheesecakes (hey, don't knock it til you try it), in my morning coffee, in my homemade pumpkin spice lattes, in my oatmeal... everything. So if you've been wanting to taste the stuff (you don't have to be new to stevia to enter to win, btw, this giveaway is for everybody), but haven't braved yourself up to buying some of your own, now is your chance-

To Enter:

-Leave a comment on this entry. Tell me why you want to win, or, something along those lines (what you'll do with it, how long you've been wanting to try it, if you already use it, whatever, you get the idea). Don't be a boring Betsy (no offense Betsy, love ya girl) hehe.

-Make sure that you leave your name and email if you don't have a blogger user id. Otherwise, you're outta there sucka! (its way past my bedtime, I've been pretty good about censoring my lame one liners up until this point)

-This contest is open to both US and Canadian residents only. Sorry Australia, better luck next time.

-Contest ends at midnight on Saturday November 7th.

Additional Entries:

-Follow my blog! If you already do, then you rock and you know it, but if you don't, scroll down over there on the left and click the little button. You'll know it when you see it. Leave me a comment letting me know you've done so.

-Follow me on Twitter *tweet tweet*. Just click here, and it should take you to my Twitter page. Don't be shy, come and talk to me. Just comment here and let me know you chirped.

-Blog about this giveaway (with both pictures and links). That's actually good for 5 extra entries, because nobody ever blogs about someone elses giveaway unless they really want to win it, haha.

Did I leave anything out? No I don't think I did. So alright, thats it, good luck!

Edit: Thank you everybody for your fantastic comments!! The winner has been chosen, and notified. My Life In Curls- your box of Stevia in the Raw is packaged up, and well on its way to you :)

I would love love to win this because it is quite difficult to find this in Canada. I have found liquid stevia and small stevia packages, but I have yet to find large quantity packages in my local health food stores. I would love to try baking with it. So far I only use it in my coffee... the French Vanilla kind. yum yum.

I wish it was easier to find this stuff in Canada... :)

I have wanted to try stevia for a long time. In my area, I've noticed that markets are starting to sell a blend of stevia and sugar, I suppose to get folks used to it, but I'd prefer to jump right in. ;)

I'm already following your blog and now Twitter, too.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Yeah, what NessaGurl said! It's hard to find in any decent quantity around here (turns out we're not that far from each other... maybe 4-5 hours?)

It's been on my list of things to try in our efforts to rid our house of refined sugar. I've never tried it, so am quite intrigued.

I follow and subscribe.

I've never tried stevia & that is why I would like to win - I want to know what I'm missing =D.

Oh, and I follow you (through google reader) and I follow you on twitter

I would love to win as I have tried other artificial sweeteners and 1)they leave a chemical taste in your mouth, 2)they lose sweetness in cooking, and 3)I'm tired on spending money on something that doesn't work like I think it will. I would love to give this a try.

I would like to try this since I have been trying to eat better. Thank you.

I have been wanting to try this since you mentioned it a few thousand times (maybe a slight exaggeration) on your blog. :) But, alas, I'm not very brave. And usually I have a toddler who is kicking & screaming in the grocery store so I never really have time to stop and talk myself into actually putting it into the cart. :) Oh, and I'm pretty sure you know I follow your blog.

My family would love to try this and our Thanksgiving guests would too!

I tweeted it, blogged it, and followed your blog finally. I really want to try this stuff! :)

I'm very sensitive to fake sugar (nasty stuff), but could use less calories.

Alicia October 31, 2009 at 9:04 PM  

I'm a diabetic & could use an alternative sweetener.

Thanks for the giveaway >^..^<

My ex husband introduced me to stevia, but whenever I purchase bulk and try the shaker method I underdo it or overdo it. I love preportioning, it would make it a lot easier to sweeten a pot of tea or coffee without the guesswork!

I've been looking at this in the store but wondered how it would taste. I would love to try it! Thanks.

I have heard of Stevia... and now that I am trying to get back into healthy-mode... it'd be great to try!

Nen November 6, 2009 at 10:18 AM  

I also follow your blog! :)
