Progresso Giveaway!

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

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.

Progresso provided me with the free product, information, and giveaway through MyBlogSpark.

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce

I love when I find a product that we can use on several items and in recipes.  Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is one of those products.  Not only can you use it in recipes such at meatloaf (more on that later), but you can use it on steak, hamburgers, pork, and chicken.  Personally, I am a ketchup person, but I may have found my ketchup replacement.

My husband made their meatloaf recipe the first night we had this.  I don’t normally care for meatloaf at all, so I wasn’t thrilled to be trying this sauce on something like that.  However, I was impressed.  The meatloaf was not dry, and it was awesome.  Not once did I feel the need to dip it in ketchup.  My kids even asked for seconds!  My husband wanted to know if there were more recipes we could try!  It is just as good on steaks and hamburgers too.

Country Bob has several other products you can try also:  BBQ Sauce, Seasoning Salt, and Spice All Purpose Sauce.  If they are as good as the All Purpose Sauce, then these are winners too!  Now, their product is good, but how about their site?  I love that too.  It is super easy to navigate.  You can easily find recipes to try and retail locations close to your house besides a ton of other stuff.  I found several local grocery stores by me that carry this besides the one I normally go to.  If you check out their online store, all of their products have free shipping!  If you are looking for a present, they have a cookbook and gift pack that would work out great!

Now, because I liked this product so much, I asked if I would be able to give a couple of my readers a chance to try this.  Of course, they said yes!  So Country Bob’s will be sending 2 lucky readers 2 bottles of their All Purpose Sauce.  What do you have to do to win this?

1.  Leave a comment on this post.  Check out Country Bob’s site and tell me what recipe you would like to try.  One comment please and let me know everything you did on that comment.  If you don’t list a feature, you are not eligible to win.
2. Stumble this post. If you don’t know what Stumble Upon is, please read Lori’s post at Blogging Cents. She explains it extremely well.
3. Vote for this post on other social media sites. One extra entry for each social media site you vote for this on.  (I’ll be adding some links to make this especially easy for you to vote — Digg, Propeller, Reddit, Mixx, Kirtsy, Blogging Zoom, Entreview)
4.  Twitter about this contest.  Please leave me your Twitter name in your comment.
