Join our #SpecialK30 Linky Challenge – you could win an iPad mini!

A lot has changed from 30 years ago: Dynasty-era shoulder pads have come and gone, Karma Chameleon is (thankfully) no longer top of the charts and now one of the most popular cereals is updating. For the first time since 1983, Kellogg’s is changing Special K with a new, more delicious and wholesome recipe.

The new recipe contains three grains — rice, wheat and barley (previously there were two) — and is made with wholegrain, for a source of fibre as well as 8 vitamins and minerals. It gives health-conscious, weight-watching women  a tastier breakfast.

Be one of the first to try the new cereal and let us know what you think about it! Join our #SpecialK30 How You’ve Changed Linky by describing what your life was like back in 1983 and how — like Special K — you’ve updated. You could win one of a host of fantastic prizes, from iPad Minis (we have two to give away) to a Spa day to a supply of the new Special K. Don’t forget to include pictures (we want to see your then-and-now pics!) and let us know what you think of the new recipe Special K. Then add your link to the Linky below. Just follow the easy steps below to be eligible for prizes!

Take part now in the #SpecialK30 How You’ve Changed Linky!

    Just go with the theme of how you have changed! (even if it is not 30 years)

    I came to see if the winners have been announced but judging by the above I think I forgot to add myself to the linky. So stupid of me when I dropped everything to get the post done (and dig the necessary 1983 photo out) x
