McDonald's Favorites Under 400 ... and a giveaway!

Have you seen the new "Favorites Under 400" menu at McDonald's? I have to say, I'm a bit excited about it - especially since some of MY favorites are on the list.

So what is the "Favorites Under 400"? Well, in an effort to put calories "front and center" for some of their most popular menu items, this is just one way McDonald's is offering nutrition information to help consumers make choices that are right for us. All the "Favorites Under 400" items will be grouped on the menu so we can find exactly what we're looking for.

Some of the items on the list include Egg McMuffin, Filet-O-Fish, medium fries, and Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfaits. Personally, I'm excited to see the Egg McMuffin on this "under 400" list - that's my "go to" breakfast sandwich (with a Diet Coke...don't judge me!). Of course, I always "special order" mine without Canadian bacon...so maybe it's less than 400 calories? :)

As an added bonus, select items from the "Favorites Under 400" menu contain a game piece with a code to enter the "Win When USA Wins Gold" contest. Check out the full details here.

And because I want my readers to enjoy their favorite under 400 ... I am giving away coupons to FIVE lucky readers. Each winner will receive a coupon for ONE free Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich, ONE free Egg McMuffin, and ONE free Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait. Coupons are valid at ANY participating McDonald's in the United States.

The rules:
1. To enter, you MUST use the Rafflecopter form below.
2. Contest starts at 12:01 am August 2 and ends at 12:01 am August 9.
3. All winners will be notified via email. Therefore you must include your email address in your blog comment.
4. Prizes will be mailed via US mail.
5. Contest open to US residents only (the coupons are only good at participating US McDonald's.)

Good luck!

8/9/12 UPDATE: Four winners were chosen from the Rafflecopter entries. Because I had 5 sets of coupons to give as prizes, I'm also sending one to commenter AubreyLaine too. Congrats to all the winner. Enjoy your Favorites Under 400! 

Disclosure: McDonald's of NW Ohio provided the coupons for the giveaway. I received three sets of coupons for my own personal use. No other compensation was provided. All thoughts are my own.
