Tastefully Simple Review and Giveaway--CLOSED

I posted about a week ago about the wonderful Tastefully Simple products that I had won in a giveaway. I had never tried their products before and was VERY happy with the results of what I received and tried with my family. I tried the Chicken and Dumpling Soup and the Beer Bread, and my family loved BOTH! Even my chicken & dumpling hating husband, and my picky teenage son loved them. So I think these products are definitely winners in my book! You can read my review of those products here.

Well the wonderful Jaina's Mom offered to do a giveaway on my brand new blog to help out a new blogger. She said someone had helped her when she was new so she wanted to pay it forward. Isn't that incredibly sweet of her? So I'm offering a giveaway that is a choice of one (not both) of her brand new spring Tastefully Simple products.



The first choice is the Party Pals set. You and your pals can cool off with two frosty flavors on a hot day! Perfect for summer, these cocktail mini-buckets come packaged together in a cute little two-pack.











Party Pals™ includes:

Juicy Watermelon™ Margarita Mix (Mini)
A mini version of summer's perfect margarita mix! Just add tequila and water, and freeze in the handy mini-bucket**. Makes about 4 (8 oz.) servings.

Mmm ... Mojito™ Drink Mix (Mini)

The delicious flavors of mint and lime are already in it. Just add rum and water, and freeze in
the convenient mini-bucket**. Garnish with fresh mint leaves. Makes about 4 (8 oz.) servings.

















The second choice is the Strawberry Sweetness set.
Looking for a sweet way to show you care? Try these two favorites beautifully packaged in our organza gift bag - the perfect gift under $15 for Mother's Day, teachers, birthdays, housewarmings and more.











Sweet Strawberry Cheese Ball M
ix
The old-fashioned flavors you love in a creamy, pink dessert. Crispy topping included. Just add cream cheese and enjoy.

Twisty Grahams™
A new twist on a favorite treat.
Looks
like a pretzel and tastes
like a graham cracker with a touch of honey and cinnamon. Kosher.

Vanilla Cream Organza Gift Bag

Perfect for holiday gifts and special occasions! This beautiful, sheer organza bag in warm vanilla cream features an elegant ribbon drawstring.


















THE GIVEAWAY:
The giveaway is for the winner's choice of either the Party Pal or Strawberry Sweetness set (not both).

THE RULES:

1) For your first and MANDATORY entry, visit the Tastefully Simple site of Jaina's Mom, then come back and tell me a product you'd LOVE to try. It cannot be one of the two giveaway choices or the two items I reviewed. There are lots of wonderful items to choose from.

EXTRA ENTRIES:

1) Simply post a "Thank You" to Jaina's Mom here for helping me with my first giveaway. (Can you tell I've very grateful!?!)

2) Go read my original review of Tastefully Simple and leave a comment there. Then come back here and post you left a comment on the review post.

3) Become one of my followers! I'm trying to build up followers, so I'm also doing a separate giveaway for people who become followers. So if you sign up to follow here, be sure to go to that giveaway here to sign up for the $10 Target contest for followers.

4) Make a purchase from Jaina's Mom and leave a comment here saying you did so. That will earn you an additional "5", yes count them "5", entries into this contest. (Yep....still grateful!)




This giveaway starts now, and will end on Tues. May 4th at 10PM EST. Winner will be selected using random.org and will be notified via email.




Disclosure: I did not receive any products for this review and giveaway, but did previously win products as noted above in a giveaway. Jaina's Mom is providing the winner of the giveaway with the prize product of choice.
