CONTEST CLOSED: Barilla Piccolini Rich in Fiber Giveaway!

Calling all pasta lovers! I hear fairly frequently from people that want to eat healthier and choose point-friendly pasta but they just aren’t fans of the texture and flavor of wheat varieties. I happen to love pasta of any kind (wheat, white, whole grain, protein enriched, fiber enriched, you name it) but when Barilla contacted me about trying their new Piccolini Rich in Fiber White Pasta varieties, I got pretty excited on behalf of all you wheat pasta haters. Besides being cute (Piccolini is code for mini pasta) these varieties have the same WW P+ values as wheat pasta and three times the fiber as white pasta, but they look, feel and taste just like traditional white pasta.

Barilla Piccolini Rich in Fiber comes in three varieties: mini penne (ridged tubes cut on the bias), mini conchiglie (ridged shells) and mini rotini (spirals). I used the rotini in my Creamy Stove Top Macaroni & Cheese this past week and it was absolutely delicious. It really does look, taste and feel just like traditional white pasta, just for less P+!

Want to try it for yourself? One lucky winner will receive SIX boxes of Barilla Piccolini Rich in Fiber as well as TWO coupons for a free box!

I’m giving you FIVE possible entries to win:

Entry: “Like” the Barilla Facebook Page and leave a comment there telling them you’re entering the giveaway on emilybites.com (feel free to tag my Facebook page in the post). Then post a comment below (on this post) to let me know you did.
Bonus Entry: Become a fan of Emily Bites on Facebook and leave a second comment below (here, not on Facebook) letting me know you did. If you are already a fan, you can say that instead!

Double Extra Bonus Entry: Follow emilybitesblog on Pinterest to have access to my top picks of the web and leave a post below letting me know you did.

Note: Please make sure you enter your name and email address when commenting so I will have a way to contact you if you win! Also, be sure to leave a separate comment below for each entry to maximize your chances of winning!

That’s five potential chances for each of you to win! Winners will be selected by random.org on Saturday, September 24th at 12:00 NOON EST. Enter below and it could be you – good luck!

The winner has been chosen! Out of 83 comments, random.org selected comment #83, so it was really easy for me to figure out who won without counting this time – phew. Without further ado, congratulations to Fran (MsHellion)! Thank you to everyone who entered.
