FarmRich Review and Giveaway

***CLOSED*** Congrats to Sara R. for winning! ***
Have you tried FarmRich foods?  FarmRich is a food company that prides itself in being there for moms by creating easy-to-prepare snacks that are sure to be a hit for the whole family.  They have been around for 25 years, but I had never heard of them until I was recently contacted by their company to do a review and giveaway of their products on my blog.

First we sampled FarmRich Mozzarella Sticks.  I'm not usually one to buy frozen snacks for my family, so they were extra excited to try these.  And the FarmRich Mozzarella Sticks did not disappoint.  They were quick to prepare in our toaster oven and made a great Saturday afternoon snack.  I wasn't thrilled about the amount of fat and sodium in this product, but that's why I tend to avoid frozen snacks in the first place.  For taste and convenience these were great!

We also tried FarmRich Italian Style Meatballs.  I actually wanted to try the Turkey Meatballs that FarmRich makes, but they were not available at my local store.  The meatballs were again easy to prepare and yummy!  There are enough in a package for two or three meals for my family, or they would be great as an appetizer for a large gathering! 

So would I buy FarmRich again?  For a party, special treat, or other gathering- yes.  For everyday consumption by my family- no.  The FarmRich food was yummy and easy to prepare.  Plus you can make how much you need for your gathering.  But I'm not a fan of all the fat and sodium and other "extras" that come in prepackaged and frozen foods.  And while I don't know how to make my own mozzarella sticks, I can certainly make my own meatballs. 

One extra thing I really like about the FarmRich website is that you can look up where to buy their products, recipes, and nutrition information for each item they sell!

One lucky reader will win two coupons to try FarmRich products for themselves!  To enter please leave a comment sharing one of your family's favorite snacks!  (And please leave your email address so I can contact the winner.)

Giveaway closes Friday, October 5th at midnight EST.  Good luck!
