McCain Potatoes!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for McCain Foods. I received a sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.

I am going to be honest. I am a meat and potatoes gal. My whole family is. I will always eat a potato that you throw in front of me, so needless to say, I was excited to try out the McCain potatoes. They all looked so good!

My kids absolutely love the McCain Smilies. It is one of the few times I let them play with their food. Like love to pretend their potatoes have voices and make comments like “don’t eat me” right before they shove it in the mouth. (I never said we were normal LOL.) Madison can’t get enough of their sweet potato fries either!

Why do I love McCain potatoes? Where do I start. I love that they are made from natural ingredients. My picky eater kids love to eat them. I don’t have to bribe them to eat dinner — they just do (with sounds effect but hey they are eating!) The McCain potatoes are just so easy to make too. I can’t complain when all it requires me to do is throw them in the over and flip them over at some point. Seriously, that’s it.

Refresh Wine Giveaway! #WineOverIce

I’m slowly starting reviewing wine. That’s why I was glad to try Refresh Wine. I was able to bring it to a birthday party, so I got a few people’s thoughts about this wine. The first thing I have to tell you is that Refresh Wine got 2 thumbs up from everybody.

Refresh by Turning Leaf comes in four light, refreshing wine options: Crisp White, Red Moscato, Moscato and Pink Moscato. All are $8. (Love how affordable these are!) These slightly fizzy wines are best served chilled, over ice, with a slice of orange or lime. They are also excellent with birthday cake. Refresh is a great option if you’re looking for something fizzier than still wine, less filling than beer or lighter than a cocktail.

Since this is not like your typical wine, we had the grandma’s trying this. My SIL’s mom may have gotten a buzz, and she never drinks wine at parties! That’s how much these Refresh Wines were a hit! I too don’t drink a lot of wine, and I love these too! I may have had 3 glasses that night myself!

I also am “Refreshing It Forward” to a reader and friend. Her name is Samantha, and she blogs over at The Peanuts Gang. She just moved into a new house and what a great housewarming gift. Plus, who can’t use a bottle of wine while moving with a 4 year old and a 2 year old (and let’s not even talk about the fact that she also works and blogs!). She’s also just a great friend who deserves it.

You all are my friend too! That is why I have arranged for one lucky reader to win a “Wine Over Ice” kit valued at $50. The gift pack will include a gift card that the winner can use to purchase Refresh. The gift pack will also include additional items to help you enjoy Refresh anytime. Here’s what you need to do:
