Green Giant Seasoned Steamers Prize Pack Giveaway 11/11 #MyBlogSpark!

You may be thinking "Ally, vegetables, aren't Holiday gifts,"  and are probably wondering why I am adding   vegetables to my Holiday Gift Guide.  Well, I am not necessarily suggesting they are the perfect gift to hand out on Christmas Day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or whatever Holiday you celebrate.   However, I do have a very great reason to add them to my list.

Thanksgiving and Christmas are both super busy days at our house.  We are literally up before 6 am preparing the feast that we are going to eat later on that day, and the cooking continues all day, yet it only takes about 20 minutes to eat it before an hour of clean up ensues.  You guys know I am a stickler for making most things homemade, because I am Southern and that's how my Mama and Grandmother did it.  However, I am all for finding ways to keep me out of that kitchen all day long.


Green Giant Seasoned Steamers IS the way to do this!  Each bag comes with four servings in it, I pop the whole bag in the microwave for 5-8 minutes (six minutes was perfect in my microwave), open and serve.  So, if I have 12 people for supper, I just pop 3 bags in the microwave, easy peasy!

What I love:

1.  Taste 
2.  Ease of preparation
3.  Portion sizes
4.  Pretty good selection with 6 veggies available

What I don't love:

1.  Price at $3.59 a package my store was charging, 
it's a little pricey unless it's on sale or I have a coupon
2.  I need a family sized bag (there's 5 of us now)

That being said, I really, really lucked out when I went to the store.  This bag normally retails for $3.59, but was on sale a dollar off at $2.59.  In addition to my one free coupon, I had some $1 off coupons I had been saving until they went on sale, so I nabbed up 3 bags for $1.59 each which isn't much more than a bag of unseasoned veggies!  We tried the potatoes and the broccoli and both are so delicious I will be buying them again, especially every time they are on sale.

I have already added the broccoli to our Holiday menu, and I may add some of the other varieties to our menu as well.  You can get a $1 off coupon to try them out for yourself, and don't forget to add them on Facebook so you don't miss any promotions!


Now for the really exciting news.  One of my readers is going to receive a prize pack (seen below) from Green Giant Steamers.  I am trying out a new giveaway application, so please feel free to leave me useful feedback on how it is working and if you like it!   It's a click and go software similar to what you are used to using!

  7. Not a fan of the new giveaway application, was very confusing, sorry! If you are going to keep using it, I would suggest being more descriptive about what you are supposed to do in each category. Especially for the tweeting option, I clicked on the link, and nothing happened, so I am not sure if anything went through.

    I went ahead and did a tweet on my own, hope that is okay, here is the link:

    1. Sorry you had troubles. I have been having a lot of issues with Rafflecopter this past two weeks. It keeps "forgetting entries" which is a huge problem, plus it was down so often, I knew people couldn't be entering as they would like to. I'm trying to find a back up method until the bugs are fully worked out with the other method.

  16. not loving that promo simple asks me to authorize for every site. :( Did you give up on Rafflecopter?

    1. No, my two latest giveaways are Rafflecopter. From a bloggers perspective Rafflecopter is just as frustrating. It quits working at LEAST 2 times a week, often more, and I was just looking for a solution other than making everyone write in their answers. I noticed this week that several bloggers are either using PromoSimple, another system or making people type in answers. Hopefully the bugs will be worked out soon, because I really do like Rafflecopter when it works!
