McDonald’s restaurants are recalling millions of Shrek glasses because they contain low levels of the toxic metal Cadmium.  The US Consumer Product Safety Commission warned consumers to immediately stop using the glasses and McDonald’s has said it will post instructions on its website next week regarding refunds.

Shrek-tacular Savings and Movie Ticket Giveaway!

Can you believe I had never tried Cinnamon Toast Crunch before?  Well General Mills and MyBlogSpark sent me a box, along with a box of Honey Nut Cheerios, Fruit Rollups, and muffin mix, and the bit of cereal that I got to try before the kids saw the box was actually pretty good.  It’s hilarious how much faster the stuff goes when it’s got Shrek’s picture on it 😉  Also included in the package were two water squirters, two highlighters, a really neat Shrek reusable bag, two $10 coupon savings booklets, and a $25 gift card to use for tickets to see Shrek Forever After.

I’m super excited about seeing the movie because my oldest son is graduating from kindegarten tomorrow and we’re planning to take him to the movie when it comes out on Friday.  He’s a huge Shrek fan, but this will be his first time seeing a movie in the theater so I’m sure it will be lots of fun!  The best part though, is that General Mills wants to give one of you a “Shrek-tacular Savings” prize pack that includes a Shrek-tacular tote bag filled with participating products including Big G cereals, Fruit Roll-Ups Minis snacks and Betty Crocker Brownie Mix or Muffin Mix. The prize pack will also include a $10 Shrek-tacular Savings coupon book with fun Shrek trivia, a Shrek water squirter, a Shrek highlighter and a $25 gift card that you can use to purchase tickets to see the new Shrek Forever After film.
