Gearing Up For Summer with Outshine (and a $100 Giveaway!)

Around here, we're gearing up for summer.  You can just feel it in the air - it's a little bit warmer, clothes are just a little bit brighter, everything seems fresh and new.
 
Food is absolutely not excluded from summer prep in these parts. :)  I'm sure you have your favorites...think for just a second, there are several mainstay foods that just make you think of summer, right?  And I would guess a frozen treat is part of that line-up.

I'd like to introduce you to one of my favorite new treats - Outshine Bars.  The Edy's brand you probably know and love has a new name!  These frozen fruit bars make your day a little brighter, no matter what time of the year it might be.
We definitely use Outshine Bars to gear up for summer.  Not only are they a delicious treat on those hot days, but they make a healthy snack that help you look your best in that summer swimsuit.  They are made with real fruit or fruit juice and almost all varieties are fat free!
Outshine recently provided me with a few of their delicious varieties to sample.  I tried the Strawberry, Mango, and Pineapple.  Yum!

We broke one out on one of those amazing, pre-summer afternoons.  It was just hot enough to need a cool treat...this made the perfect snack, especially because I'm trying to get to that summer body.  The strawberry variety is only 70 calories per bar!

This awesome snack brightened an already fun afternoon.  This girl played and I snacked...can it get more fun than that? This was great to enjoy a delicious treat without the “calorie guilt.” You can really tell these bars are made with real fruit!
There are many other flavors of Outshine bars that I can't wait to try – coconut waters, peach, and raspberry are among them. There are 24 different flavor varieties to choose from. Outshine is easy to love with so many different options!
You can check out Outshine's Facebook page here for more information. Thank you to Outshine Bars for the opportunity to snack brighter!
