Green Giant Review & Prize Pack Giveaway {CLOSED}

4:48 PM

 
***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***
Sooo, I am still on vacation but wanted to get a review and giveaway up for you all today! Sorry about the delay...I have been having so much fun and have enjoyed my time away. We had an amazing Thanksgiving as well and I sincerely hope that you all did too.

Do you have children who do NOT eat vegetables? I do...two of them. My youngest I can coax to try a bite or two but really, he isn't a fan. My oldest does not eat veggies. Sometimes she will try some corn and eat that but she normally does not like veggies. As a mom, I know how important it is to feed my children healthy food and it really bothers me that they do not eat veggies. For this reason I am constantly looking for ways to get them healthy foods that are served in ways that they love.
I am sure that you are all aware of Green Giant and their wonderful selection of canned and frozen vegetables. Who can miss that big green guy on the front of cans and boxes? That "Green Giant" has been the most recognizable character on the shelves...I always know what I am looking at when I see him.

Green Giant has come up with a brand new line of microwaveable vegetables that are called Valley Fresh Steamers Vegetables with Pasta. These pasta, vegetable and sauce combinations are healthy and are table ready in several minutes. New Valley Fresh Steamers Vegetables with Pasta varieties include:
Macaroni and Cheese Sauce with Broccoli - classic elbow pasta and broccoli in a mouth watering cheese sauce and Pasta and Vegetables with Alfredo Sauce – delicious corkscrew pasta with carrots and broccoli in a savory Alfredo sauce
So, For this review I was sent a nice package of goodies to try and share with you. I was sent:


-2 Green Giant placemats
-Broccoli stress reliever
-32 oz. serving bowl
-Surprise face serving spoon
-A VIP coupon for the new Valley Fresh Steamers with Pasta


The same day I received my package I went out to the store to get my Valley Fresh Steamer...and I also looked forward to dinner that night. When I went to the store, I saw so many Valley Fresh Steamers in the freezer that I just looked for something with sauce (not remembering the pasta part...ha ha). Turns out, my store does not yet carry the newest product from Green Giant. So, I ended up coming home with Broccoli, Cauliflower, Carrots and Cheese Sauce.
What I really love about the Steamers is the fact that they are gourmet vegetables that are ready in minutes. It just makes dinner time so much more easy and yummy. I served up my Valley Fresh Steamer with pierogies and held my breath as the children tasted their cheesy veggies.
My daughter ate SOME of it (which was a huge step) and my son did try some as well. I was thrilled that they at least tried it and did eat some of it. Because my husband does not touch vegetables, I ate the leftover portion and it was indeed very tasty. I would definitely purchase this again.

My family did enjoy this product from Green Giant and with over 130 more varieties, I am certain that we will find more favorites in the future.

So, in my opinion...I would definitely recommend the Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers. Although I did not try the pasta variety, I am still very impressed and would definitely purchase this product again.
Green Giant and General Mills has offered to give away a prize pack identical to the one I received, to one of you! The winner's prize pack will contain:
