Current Contests


I was recently contacted by Red Gold to do a product review and they are offering one of my lucky readers a free gift pack!!!

I received a wonderful assortment of Canned products and I have to admit that at first I was very impressed with the bold colors and presentation of the product. I also have to admit that I have only limited experience with canned tomatoes, I have only used canned tomatoes in a few dips that I have made.

I immediately tried the tomatoes the very first night! I used a can of the diced tomatoes, instead of dicing a whole tomato as I normally would for Taco Salad. They were a big hit with my family of 9! The flavor was so full and fresh, and our tomato loving 3 year old kept going in and stealing pinches straight from the bowl!

Day two, we used them in place of our normal brand of canned tomato, to make a salsa dip mixed with Velveeta cheese, Again it was a big hit! The full flavor of these tomatoes are still evident and not hidden by being smothered in cheese, and they come from a can!!

We have continued to use them with our Taco Braid, and in our breakfast burritos and will definitely be our brand of choice from now on!

Now one Lucky follower will also be able to win their very own gift pack!
