Giveaway Time: Yoplait Cooler Goodies

Happy National Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month!

This post has two purposes: the first is telling you about Yoplait’s new Lactose Free Yogurt.  The second is to test Rafflecopter’s contest system.  To do that I’m going to have to give away something.  That would be the Yoplait Cooler set I just got in the mail – MyBlogSpark is generously giving me one to keep and one to give away to my readers.

I was sent everything I needed to try the product and review it and I have to say, I’m liking the Yoplait sans lactose.  I picked french vanilla to try because it’s a basic indicator – everyone knows what vanilla is supposed to taste like.   I expected it to taste chalky or thin but it was full on creamy and delicious.  It’s great with granola and oats tossed in for breakfast or blendered up with ice in my protein shake.

Why go lactose free?  Because most mammals become lactose intolerant after the wean from their mother’s milk.  Humans are some of the only mammals that continue to drink milk into adulthood.  Symptoms of lactose intolerance are abdominal bloating and cramps, flatulence, diarrhoea, nausea, rumbling stomach and vomiting.  If you suffer from any of these annoying symptoms you may want to see if they correlate with you consuming milk products.

For me, I feel much better without lactose in my diet.  I’m not strict with cutting it completely from my diet, but when I do have it I notice I feel all bloaty.  Thanks to Yoplait’s new Lactose Free yogurt, I can still have my calcium ;D  Yoplait’s Lactose Free comes in Strawberry, Peach, French Vanilla and Cherry flavors.

Now for the contest part.  Historically I haven’t enjoyed doing contests.  I always feel bad for everyone that didn’t get picked and have a hard time finding a good random selector.  I’m going to give Rafflecoptor a try after seeing it used successfully over at Marsha’s Spot

The contest will be to win the pictured Yoplait cooler, matching freezer paks, bowl, spoon and a coupon to try it Yoplait Lactose Free for yourself.  Be sure to enter the contest below, and while you wait grab this coupon* for .30 off Yoplait Lactose Free and try it yourself.  Visit Yoplait’s website for more info.
