New giveaway: a Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes gift pack

April 5, 2011

I LOVE free things. It doesn’t take much to get me excited. So you can guess how thrilled I was to receive the gift pack, above, from Betty Crocker in order to promote their new product: Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes. They’ve also give me another prize pack to give to one of you lovely readers!

But first, I want to let you know my opinion of the Loaded Mashed Potatoes. They’re an instant mashed potatoes product with chives, cheese, sour cream and bacon added in. Hy husband says I don’t have any taste buds, and everything tastes good to me, so you shouldn’t be too impressed that I thought these were delicious. What should impress you is that he, the food snob, loved them as well. He’s actually been commenting on them for a couple of days now. I was a little surprised at how much he likes them!

If you’d like to try Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes right away you can print a $0.55/1 coupon here.

Now to the giveaway. One reader will win a prize pack that includes a package of Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes, a mixing bowl from OXO, a spatula (it’s a really nice one!), measuring cup, and potholder.

Required Entry:

To enter, leave a comment on this blog post telling me what your favorite side dish is with dinner. Potatoes? Something else?

Optional Entries:

You can do each of the following things for an additional entry in the giveaway. There is a maximum of 5 entries. Please leave a separate comment for each method of entry. 

This giveaway ends at midnight EST on Friday April 8. I will choose a winner on Saturday April 9 using random.org

Discolsure: The product, prize pack, information and additional prize pack to give away were all given to me from Betty Crocker through MyBlogSpark.
