PGEW.com wins a Foodie Blogroll Giveaway!

So last week, the fine folks at FoodieBlogroll.com chose Poor Girl Eats Well at random as the winner of their Mediterranean Mondays Giveaway. Woo hoo! So what did I get for being the lucky winner? According to the site, I was going to get a "box full of Cedar's Mediterranean Foods goodies and a T-shirt". I did, but let me tell you, this was the understatement of the year! I was expecting some small, sample sized tzatziki and hummus (they spell it "hommus"; I wonder which is more correct?). Instead, Foodie Blogroll teamed up with the oh-so-generous Cedars Mediterranean Foods family to send me this giant box of Mediterranean food that will surely last me for a couple of weeks! Everything I received was full sized, which is not the norm when it comes to prizes & giveaways. I was truly surprised! Here's what I got:

Traditional Tzatziki
Roasted Red Pepper Tzatziki (though unfortunately, someone ended up swiping it from the fridge at work. Kleptos!!! This is why I had to label everything, in case you were wondering from the photo)
Roasted Garlic Hommus
Spinach & Artichoke Hommus
Spinach Dip
Plain Pita Chips
Garlic Pita Chips
And a very comfy T-shirt I'm currently wearing as my new pajamas :)

Everything came nicely packaged in a foam cooler with little ice packs to keep everything fresh. I had wondered how I was going to get Tzatziki delivered to me and had speculated I might have been getting some sort of mix, but when I saw this great package I realized how wrong I was. I've never won a food giveaway before but if they're all like this, I am more than happy to enter any and every contest out there!

I tried the Spinach Dip & Tzatziki today with the pita chips and really liked them. I will let you know how the hommus turns out (you know how I feel about that stuff!). For now, I just want to thank Cedars Mediterranean Foods for this incredible prize and urge all of you with food blogs to post your blog on FoodieBlogroll.com. Not only is it a great way to get more exposure and meet up w/other foodies, but they have some really great contests! Who knows, you may be the next winner!

*runs off to enjoy more Spinach Dip (this stuff is really good!)*

  2. YAY! I am so glad you did this write up! I know what you mean, I was also really surprised at how big my samples were too - full sized! And I wear my t-shirt as PJ's too! :)

  3. I am still floored by the amount of food AND the sizes that they sent! The packaging was really great too. It was an awesome little giveaway!
