  • Review & Giveaway: Weight Watchers Golden Sponge Cake with Creamy Filling

    Weight Watchers sent me a box of their new Golden Sponge Cake with Creamy Filling to try, and I must say, they’ve done a decent job of replicating the Twinkie. The Golden Sponge Cake is a little drier and grainier than I remember Twinkies being, but then again it’s been years since I had a Twinkie so my memory could be faulty.

    As a chocolate lover, I thought these cakes were just okay – maybe I should turn them into Chocodiles, then they’d be the perfect dessert. But then they’d no longer be just one point. And for one point, the serving size is pretty generous. If you’re on Weight Watchers – or any weight-loss/maintenance plan – and you look for low-point treats to keep you happy, these are definitely worth trying.

    Win it!

    Weight Watchers is giving three lucky CFO readers a coupon good for one free package of any Weight Watchers snack cake, muffin or soft cookie.

    I’m going to try something different this time to collect entries, thanks to Angie’s post on creating a form at BlogCoach. Simply fill out the form below and click “submit.” That’s it!

    For an additional entry, subscribe to my feed via RSS or email and fill out the form again to let me know you’ve done so.

    For a third entry, spread the word about this contest – tell a friend or write about it on your own blog. Then let me know about it by filling out the form again.

    You can enter up to three times (one for each type), and you must submit separate entries for each type. I’ll select the winners using and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. Winners will have 48 hours to send me their address, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected.

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25. Sorry, this giveaway is open only to U.S. residents.

    Good luck!
