PRIZE DRAWING: Because I Want Three Readers To Eat Smart

The new Smartfood Popcorn Clusters are being marketed towards women, but to that I say nay. If guys can’t use Secret Deodorant, which is strong enough for a man, but made for a woman, then we’re just going to have to enjoy these new popcorn snacks from Frito Lay. If I can’t smell powder fresh, then I’m going to eat these popcorn snacks with two grams of fat or less and 120 calories or less per serving. They’re also a good source of dietary fiber and calcium, providing around 20% of your daily recommended allowance of each. But before I eat some, The Impulsive Buy is going to give some away.

Thanks to the fine folks at Frito Lay, The Impulsive Buy has three boxes of Smartfood Popcorn Clusters to give away to three lucky readers. Each box contains five packs and we have one box of each flavor:

Cranberry Almond

Honey Multigrain

Chocolate Cookie Caramel Pecan

If you’d like to read a review about them, our friends at Snackerrific wrote one up.

To enter this prize drawing, just leave a comment with THIS post with the flavor you would like to win AND a random nugget of knowledge that you can’t believe is stuck in your head.

For example, I know for a fact that there is a town in Austria called Fucking. I don’t know how or why that’s stuck in my head, but it is and it’s there forever.

Please fill out the email field, because I’ll be emailing the winners for their mailing addresses. The Impulsive Buy will stop accepting entries on Friday, June 5, 2009 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Only one entry allowed per person (I’m keeping track of the IP addresses) and it’s open to EVERYONE (men and women) who’s 18 years old or older.

Good luck!

Fine Print: The Impulsive Buy promises your email address will not be used to send you emails about how you can get Rolex watches at a fraction of the cost. The Impulsive Buy also promises your mailing address will not be used to send you AAA Membership upgrade offers. Bribes will not be accepted. The Impulsive Buy will not be responsible for lost mail, damaged mail, or the heat this summer.
