"Not-Beef" and "Not-Chick'n" flavored Bouillon Cubes & Gummy Bears Giveaway

I promised to do a giveaway when I reached 600 followers on Twitter. Last night I hit 600 so here is the promised giveaway :-)
Thank you everyone for following me on Twitter and thank you for all your support.
I decided to giveaway three of my favorite products by Edward & Sons company:
Yummy and addictive vegan Gummy Bears. They are all natural and organic and the flavors are a nice fruity mixture of apples, apricots, pineapples, blackcurrants and elderberries. These vegan Gummy Bears will bring you back into your childhood and will put a smile on your face.

And my favorite vegan "Not-Beef" and "Not-Chick'n" flavored Bouillon Cubes that I use almost daily. They are far better than regular vegetable broth or vegetable bouillon cubes. I veganize a lot of Czech and American meals that use beef or chicken both as a base and I was never able to recreate the taste with regular vegetable broth. With these "beef" and "chicken" flavored bouillon cubes that are super easy to use I can create traditional taste without using any animal products. I am totally crazy about these bouillon cubes and I cannot imagine cooking without them. Here are some examples of meals that I made using these cubes.

Wild beans and rice dinner- wild rice and white beans cooked with white wine topped with sauteed mushrooms and seitan (using Not-Chick'n).

Vegan gumbo and rice (using Not-Beef)

Lemony asparagus risotto (using Not-Chick'n)

Hungry Vegan Chili (using Not-Beef) recipe here

Czech goulash with bread dumplings (using Not-Beef) recipe here

So, who wants to win some cool bouillon cubes and yummy gummy bears? You have several ways to enter this giveaway. I will pick one random comment on July 4th, Monday evening.
