A Tasty Surprise from AVEENO & Levain Bakery, NYC

This is a sponsored post for AVEENO®. I'm a 2014 AVEENO® Ambassador. All opinions are 100% my own.  
I received a birthday gift from AVEENO® and Levain Bakery in New York City.

Many of you know, I was asked by AVEENO to be an AVEENO Ambassador for 2014. I hosted an AVEENO Oat-standing Giveaway in January and promised to take you guys on my year long adventure. Well, buckle your seat-belts, because here we go! It's going to be FUN!

I received two parcels from AVEENO yesterday. One was a birthday present from New York! The AVEENO girls sent me a scrumdiddlyumptious box of oatmeal raisin cookies from Levain Bakery. They are soooo good! I've never had anything from Levain Bakery. I've never been to New York! HaHaHa

The cookies are HUGE and they melt like butter in your mouth. They're moist, delicious, have just the right amount of crunch & chewy-iness. They also have a rich texture and big plump raisins. I looked at Levain's website and they sell cookies, rolls, scones, muffins, brioche, tarts, cake and more. They have 3 locations in New York, so if you're there give them a try. I was very impressed with their cookies. They also have an online store. What's in the second box from AVEENO? I'll divulge the sweet contents to you next week! It's truly awesome! ;) Thank You AVEENO and Levain Bakery!

Hey Kim!
Congrats on the Ambassadorship - that is so exciting and such a good brand to be a part of. I've always loved Aveeno because I have such sensitive skin. That is so nice they sent you those Oatmeal cookies from Levain Bakery. Yum!!
(PS So glad I figured out the comment situation too on my site. :)
Have a great weekend,


miss b said...

Lucky you! I see we both have cookies on our blog today! Oatmeal and raisin is a favourite combination of mine and perfect with a cup of tea. Have an oat-standing day - that was a cute message too! Have a great weekend Kim!

Emdem said...

Oh dear, Kim! I'm drooling! Chewy cookies and the plump raisins, oh nooo... Haha, I really love oatmeal cookies!

ohhh boy... i am getting hungry here ... yummy cookies :) xx

Coco said...

I'm so proud of you for being Aveeno ambassador! I love their products, but I don't know their whole range, which I'm eager to know thanks to you. It makes perfect sense that they sent you oatmeal cookies as their products are oatmeal based, so clever! I think they were super nice!
Looking forward to your review
