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:
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
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!
