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.

How you simplifying your summer?  It’s so hot here in Chicago, so the simpler dinner can be; the happier mom is.  Simply Potatoes does just that for dinner time.  First of all, there is the convenience.  There is no peeling, slicing, dicing or mashing potatoes.  Open the bag and that’s it.   They are better for you.  Their cut potatoes and steamables are all fat free, cholesterol free and 90 calories or less per serving.  Simply Potatoes has a ton of variety.  It is available in a number of mashed and cut varieties, delicious right out of the microwave, off the grill or added to your family’s favorite dish.

Best of all, I’ve tried several of their varieties and they are all good.  I personally love the Steakhouse Potatoes.  They are just soooo good.  I can only highly recommend trying out Simply Potatoes!
