GIVEAWAY! Brita Marella cool blue jug and 2 bonus filters

This giveaway is now closed.

You may remember I recently reviewed Brita's water filter jug, which I use to filter our tap water at home.
BRITA Marella Cool Jug
Well I have good news - Brita is going to give a Brita Marella cool blue jug plus 2 bonus MAXTRA cartridge filters to one of Craving Fresh's readers. One filter lasts for two months and you get a filter with the jug as well, so this prize pack will give you six months worth of filtering joy for free.

  1. Hey Emma, thanks so much for the chance to enter this giveaway. My first comment disappeared thanks to blogger signing me up - I had written a big long comment blabbing on so you are probably relieved not to have to read it lol.

    1. I'd love to chance to try a Brita water filter. I've read rave reviews on a few blogs and would love to try one as I am a full-time water-drinker! I also am pro-fluoride in water so it is good Brita filters do not filter out fluoride, although here in Chch we do not have fluoridated water so it doesn't really matter!

    3. I am a fan of Craving Fresh on Facebook.

    5. I follow Craving Fresh blog.

  2. 4. And I just shared it on Facebook :)

  3. We've always boiled water for drinking in our household - having grown up in a country where we've always had to do that, it's a habit that's tough to break. Having a Brita water jug with a filter would save us boiling and then cooling our drinking water. :)

  4. Hi Emma, Jodie here,
    So excited about this competition was looking at these filters jst the other day.

    1.I would love to win a Brita water filter because I need filtered water for many recipes that I make, but don't have one so have to boil water and let it cool before being able to use it. Having a water filter would make these recipes that much simpler.

    3. I am a fan of craving fresh on Facebook.

    Thanks heaps Emma. You do such a great job with Craving Fresh.

  9. HI Emma,
    Heather Dunlop here,
    I would love one of these Brita water filter jugs as Sandy and I drink heaps of water it would be good to know that all the impurities have been filtered out of the water before we drink the copious amounts that we do - we pretty much don't drink anything other than tap water. I also love the jug that you have at your place and found it very easy to use and the water tasted so much better.
    I became a fan of Brita and have been a fan of Craving Fresh on FB and follow Craving fresh also. and Shared this link on FB.
    I don't tweet so I can't do that.
    I will sign up for Craving Fresh emails right now.
    Love reading your blogs.

  10. i would love to win, as am trying my best (its hard!!) to eat healthier and live a healthier lifestyle.
