Build a Better Sandwich with Arnold Bread Contest and Giveaway

14. August 2014 15:12 by jennifer | 28 Comments

Disclosure: The coupons for product redemption, information, and gift card have been provided by Arnold® Bread so that I could try the product and share my thoughts and information about Arnold.  The opinions expressed in this post are my own and do not reflect the opinions of Arnold® Bread.”

I don't eat bread often, but when I do it's ALWAYS an Arnold Sandwich Thin. ALWAYS. I originally discovered these little gems back in 2009 in a Weight Watchers meeting.

I haven't had bread since early July, so I had really been craving a good sandwich. I was surprised to see a NEW variety at the store! 100% Whole Wheat with FLAX & FIBER!! This sandwich thin still had only 100 calories, but it added 5g of fiber per serving! SCORE!!

I made my turkey breast sandwich (low sodium of course) and added a thin slice of provolone cheese, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, and spicy brown mustard. It was SO GOOD!!

And Arnold wants to give one of MY readers a chance to win their own set of Arnold Product Coupons PLUS a $25 Visa Gift Card!! Simply leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite sandwich is!!

One of the most fun things about being a blogger is never knowing what color/style the company will send you. It's a bit like Christmas! I was sent the Flux Orange/Rebel Berry/White/Black. I would not have chosen this color for myself, so it really forced me to step-outs... [More]
