Progresso Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

Capture1 Progresso Giveaway!I like soup especially here in Chicago in the winter time. Nothing is better to warm you up from the inside out and if it is low in calories, even better! Did you know that Progresso Soup can help curb your hunger, and it is available in 40 delicious flavors that have 100 calories or less? With hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Soup varieties offer a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. I always feel like Progresso Soup is the “adult” soup on the market. It is filling. It is good and very flavorful. It is just an added plus that it is low in calories.

Now, to help kick off a new outlook on the New Year, Progresso is excited to announce the return of the “Souper You™ Debut” contest! From January 3rd through March 16th, you and your readers can visit Progresso on Facebook to enter for the chance to win a full makeover in New York City. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 20th-22nd. The prize includes roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money. Once the 10 finalists are announced, you can visit Progresso on Facebook from March 30th through April 13th to vote for your favorite.

You can also visit the Facebook page to download a coupon for $1.00 off four (4) cans of Progresso Soup and to check out makeover videos provided by MyStyle.com and the Style Network. Be sure to also “Follow” Progresso on Twitter to keep up with the latest news from Progresso.

Since I have enjoyed the soup so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get a Progresso “Souper You Debut” gift pack that includes a VIP coupon for a free can of Progresso soup, as well as a yoga mat, water bottle, set of aerobic bands, sport headband and two sport wristbands.

Wasa Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Justine. Congrats!

Wasa Flatbread Giveaway v.2 300x225 Wasa Review and GiveawayWasa Flatbreads are made with a few, simple all natural ingredients.  They are then seasoned and oven baked for a one of a kind taste.  This healthier cracker offers endless topping possibilities.  In addition, the Stay Fresh packs make them a great on the go snack.  They come in three flavors:  Original, Sesame, and Rosemary.

We were given one of each to try.  The Original Wasa Flatbreads on their own seemed a little bland.  However, if you top it with a flavored cream cheese of some sort, it was way better.  The sesame was good with everything we put on top of it (cheese, sausage, dip, etc).  However, our favorite was the Rosemary.  These flatbreads were good on their own, and also worked well with all the topics we tried with it.  We served these at a football party we were having, and everyone seemed to like them!  If you are looking for a healthier snack in your house, give Wasa Flatbreads a try!

Since we liked them so much, I’ve arranged for one of my lucky readers to get a Wasa Prize Pack!   The winner will get all 3 flavors of Wasa, a Wasa branded tin, flash drive and pen, tote bag, and a book on recipes with flatbreads!  Here’s what you need to do:

Check out Wasa‘s site and tell me which flavor of flatbread you think you’d like best.

Smarty Had A Party Review and Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Emma Peel. Congrats!

Sponsored by Tomoson.comCapture2 300x157 Smarty Had A Party Review and Giveaway!I like to make things easy for myself.  Every other year we do Christmas Eve at my house, and I hate all the dishes that it brings (especially when we are talking 11 adults and 4 kids).  Granted, we have a dishwasher, but it still stinks.  After a dinner with everybody, we end up having to run at least 2 loads in the dishwasher to get everything clean.

That is where Smarty Had A Party comes in.  First of all, who doesn’t love that name?  Smarty Had A Party is the premier online retailer of elegant disposable dinnerware, offering an attractive alternative for classy parties, weddings, holidays and elegant events, at a substantial cost-savings over rentals. Although these dishes are sturdy and elegant enough to be used for an important event, they can be conveniently disposed of, and all at reasonable price. They even offer free ground shipping on all orders over $275.00!

We recently tried these out.  At first look, they look real.  It isn’t until you sit down and use them that you realize that it is plastic.  They definitely dress up your dinner, and this is a product I’ll be using again for family holidays.  Everybody was impressed with them, and it made cleanup a breeze.

Since we liked these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get their own Smarty Had A Party prize pack!  They prize pack consists of:

10.25″ Smarty Ivory and Chocolate Dinner Plates
Reflections Long Dinner Forks
Reflections Grand Heavy Knives
Reflections Spoons
Chocolate Brown Dinner Napkins

Here’s what you need to do:

Head over to the Smarty Had  A Party site and tell me what products you like best.  Is it the silverware?  Or is it the
10.75″ Platinum Ebony Black Plates?

These will give you one additional entry (for each thing):
