Back to School Bash – Yoplait Go-Gurt Prize Pack Review and Giveaway

My boys really love Yogurt and will eat almost any kind. Although, the do really enjoy things that are out of the ordinary and that is why they have taken to Yoplait Go-Gurt so strongly. Go-Gurt comes in fun and convenient tubes and is virtually mess free! Being the mom of four kids, I also enjoy that  the boxes come in an eight pack. Usually, yogurt for children comes in a six pack of cups and then it is not come out even against the number of boys I have. Recently, My Blog Spark and Yoplait were kind enough to allow me to review a Keeping Cool in School Gift Pack that came with a ton of great school supplies and a coupon for a free Yoplait Go-Gurt. 

{In Their Words}
 “There is no ice pack needed – Go-Gurt (and Simply… Go-Gurt too!) is specially made to freeze and thaw, keeping the yogurt, and the rest of lunch, cool until lunch time.

With Go-Gurt yogurt in your child’s lunch box, you can feel confident that there will be no snack trading at lunch time since Go-Gurt has a taste and texture that kids love! Moms can feel good about packing Go-Gurt each morning since each portable tube contains a good source of calcium and vitamin D, providing a wholesome addition to a well-balanced lunch. Available in a variety of cool, fun flavors like Strawberry Splash and Chill-Out Cherry, Go-Gurt will quickly become a refreshing classroom favorite. “

{My Take}

We have bought Yoplait Go-Gurt in this house for quite some time and have never been disappointed. I love how convenient it is and the kids love the fun flavors it comes in like Berry Blast and the fact that two of their favorite characters (Spongebob and Scooby Doo) are currently on the boxes.
The Keeping Cool in School pack that I had the chance to review had an insulated lunch tote, mini water bottle, sandwich keeper, cool breeze pen fan, and some fun school supplies for the new school year. The boys loved the gift pack and have already abused the poor pen fan and had a sword fight with the curvy extra long pencils. 

I have never hesitated to give my boys Yoplait Go-Gurt because it only has 70 calories and is a healthy snack any time of the day. In fact, we often use it as a side to dinners at home. There is now Simply Go-Gurt as well that has no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners!

Yoplait Go-Gurt is sold in most national chain and local grocery stores and is generally sold in eight count boxes.

* I received a Yoplait Go-Gurt prize pack for the purpose of this review, but was not compensated in any other way. The thoughts, opinions and words expressed here are entirely my own and were not influenced by anyone else.


    1. I wait until the last minute or a great to use my coupons. I usually can get their back to school items free or very inexpensive.

    2. Have kids set out their clothes the night before. That way you don't have that ordeal in the morning when you are running short on time.

    3. We shop at tax free weekend and we buy extras for the middle of the school year when things are running low or new ones are needed. I also buy extras for the kids school supply drive that our local college supports.

    4. get ready the night before- starts the day out right- even go as far as puring cereal without milk in sealable bowls and having things stressfree- if by chance you are running late they can grab it and a juice box and eat in the car

    5. Getting the kids' to get their backpacks ready the night before is really helpful. If there are any forms that need mom's signature, we can get it done then. Also we aren't rushing around like chickens with their heads cut off in the morning.

    6. Best tip I have is to give the kiddo specific choices, not open ended questions. "Do you want to wear X or Y outfit to school tomorrow?" rather than "What do you want to wear to school tomorrow?"

    7. Tip: start shopping early and get in on all the good deals, especially at cvs and walgreens


    8. My best back to school tip would be to make sure the kids are well rested and prepared for their first day!

    9. Start a few days before by getting kids to bed a bit earlier so they get back into back-to-school mode

    10. Shop dolar stores for your notebook, pencils, markers you may get a better deal there and even for the kids lunchboxes

    11. My back to school tip is to leave the TV off so that getting ready moves along a little faster!

    12. We start the routine a week before school starts,earlier bedtime,wake up,breakfast etc…

    13. We start a school bed routine a week before school starts to make sure we have enought time.

    14. i try to plan ahead, buying school products year round when they are on sale

    15. Mine is to start the kids getting up early and going to bed on time at least a week before school starts otherwise the first week of school is pure heck….

    16. My best back to school tip is to start your kids going to bed early and waking up early a week before school starts, so they get used to it again.

    17. Sorry, I forgot to post the Mandatory first!

      My best back to school tip is beginning a couple of weeks before school starts getting the children used to going to bed earlier every night and then waking them up a little earlier every few mornings. Something my mom always did for us before we went back. This gets there schedule back on track and keeps them focused for a new school year.

    23. Getting bed time and wake time adjusted a week or so early so it isn't such a shock to their system when school is in.

    24. The first week of school is stressful enough without having to think about clothes, shoes and hair stuff. Put together five complete outfits the week before.

    25. One of my best back to school tips would be to check the internet for clothing deals, I swear it is much better than wandering around the mall for hours! Online you can get great deals and free shipping too!

    26. My back to school tip is wait for Tax Free Weekend to stock up on school supplies and purchase school shoes. I also like to stock up on my office supplies and computer paper too.
