Sipping Something New At Starbucks (Plus a Giveaway!)

Last week a PR person for Starbucks emailed me to see if I'd like to try their new drink -- the Vivanno. It took me about ten seconds to respond that yes, I would love to sample their new offering (I mean what busy Mommy would turn down free Starbucks?).

Today I sampled the Vivanno. And it was good. Really good. Here is the best part: this drink is low in calories and good for you.

The Vivanno comes in two flavors: Chocolate Banana (270 calories) and Orange Mango Banana (250 calories). The drink contains a whole banana mixed with whey protein, fiber powder, 2 percent milk and Naked fruit juice (in the orange mango banana only) - all good stuff. I tried the Orange Mango Banana and it was an absolutely delicious treat on an incredibly hot summer day. This is also a perfect non-caffeinated Starbuck's option for pregnant gals like me.

So why am I telling you all this, you wonder? Because Starbucks gave me gift cards to give to TWO readers so you can try the Vivanno for yourself. Free Starbucks people.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with your first name and email address by midnight (central time) on Monday, July 21st. I will randomly pick two winners and contact you for your mailing address. By the end of next week, you too could be having a free Vivanno. Note: don't forget to leave your email address because Blogger doesn't give me any other way to respond to your comments.

Thank you Starbucks!

And the winners are . . . . Anne-Marie K. and Eleanor Q. Enjoy your treat girls.

It's funny you had this. Our local sbx was going crazy with the advance buzz campaign, and then when it came time to try a sample I declined. Well, I guess I shouldn't have!

Yay! Free drinks!
