Protein Bar Giveaway

I'm excited to announce my first ever giveaway on The World According to Eggface. I've assembled a dozen protein bars including some of my very favorites. If you'd like a chance to win these yummy weight loss surgery friendly treats...


Here's what you need to do:

Just leave a comment on this blog posting by Monday, May 26th, 12 midnight PST and on Tuesday morning I'll draw a name using a random number generator and announce the winner.

Disclaimers: this contest is open to anyone in the 48 contiguous states ('cause I am too cheap to mail elsewhere)

One entry per person.

*Please be sure to check back next week to see if you are the winner. If I don't hear back from you (with a shipping address) by Saturday, May 31st I'll choose another winner.

Good Luck!

****THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED****

Thank you to all who participated I will be posting the winner ***as soon as I am able.*** Due to an influx of comments Blogger's little Spam Net has scooped me up and I am temporarily frozen out (can not publish an entry) until the blog is confirmed (by a human blogger employee) that it is not a SPAM BLOG. Errrr FRUSTRATING! I've got some yummy food porn to share.

Till then feel free to check out the archives of recipes and use the search box under my before & after page.

Thanks, Michelle (Eggface) (on a forced blog vacation errrrr)
