A Souper Giveaway

by jerseygirl on January 11, 2009 · 65 comments

Right now I am relaxing and basking in the Eagles win. It gives us another week of football and of course, more football food. I am already planning a green drink I can serve for our Superbowl party. Hopefully the Eagles won’t let us down next week.

Last month, I received some Go Appetit Cool Soups. I was a little hesitant to try these. Cold soup in a drink form? Yes, I tried these and they were smooth and delicious. It was the perfect mid morning or afternoon snack. Even my daughter loved the soups. They are only 100 calories and packed with antioxidants. There are two flavors of Mango Spice and Rich Vegetable Gazpacho.

Now you know I love to cook. So I can make my own drinkable soups, right? First I can wash and clean a bunch of veggies. Then I can put them in the food processor. After that I will clean out the food processor, using my little toothbrush to get all the tomato skins out of the cracks. Gather some containers to put the soup in. Wrong size, so now it’s time to clean out the containers. Ooops, a spill. Get our doggie to lick the floor. Gather some more containers. I am exhausted and it’s time to pick up my children. Why don’t I buy some Go Apetit soups and save the cooking for dinner? Seriously though, I really enjoyed these soups and love the cool containers they came in.

Lucky for you, you can get some of your own Go Appetit soups. And right now Go Apetit is giving away a portable soup gift pack which includes a Tshirt and tote to one of my readers. All you have to do is leave me a comment letting me know what you have overindulged in over the holidays. This contest closes on Tuesday at 11pm EST. Please leave me an email address if you do not have a blog link. I will pick a winner by random drawing on Wednesday.

Go E-A-G-L-E-S and Go Appetit!

Oh My… me again…. I didn’t follow directions and tell you how I indulged over the holidays….

Made chocolate chips cookies twice, egg nog… egg nog… egg nog…. just plain but frequently.

Continued to over-indulge through last week’s start of The Biggest Loser and Oprah’s emotional “fell off the wagon” show.

Healthy in a bottle – Sounds like just what I need !!!

I ate way too much chocolate FUDGE…I mean, I only make it during Christmas time – so I guess it’s my fault for ‘depriving myself’ of it – then eating tons of it once December comes.

this year was too thin around here to over indulge in ANYTHING, but in my dreams…it was cupcakes and cookies@

on a different note, do you want to know how nifty this would be for us? We have Ramen soup often around here and I send hubs off with a thermos of it that I doctor up in so many different ways to change the pace of things…well, he keeps telling me how he wants to eat healthier when we’re able to, how cool would it be for me to send him off with this kind of soup instead of heating the thermos and coming up with ANOTHER soup idea?! oh wow…that would be so cool to see his face with this one.

Great giveaway!

I ate so many cookies. I baked a lot in November, froze the cookies, and taped the tins shut. Well, I used a knife to cut the tape and ate tons of cookies before Christmas even got here. I feel sick!

I overindulged on cookies this holiday season. I know that’s a cliche but for me it’s highly unusual behavior since I’m not a big sweets gal.

I over indulged in truffles! I never made them before and armed with a simple recipe I decided to fill 12 tins for gifts. They turned out excellent and were so pretty! The problem was that I ended up with 10 tins to giveaway and am now wishing I had given 9! Thanks!

Just had to come back to say I ordered these soups on amazon.com and also got FREE shipping.

I had contacted GO Appetit and one of their co-founds was kind enough to let me know that they are know available on amazon. They are also available at Whole Foods in some stores in Texas and Louisiana.

Can’t wait to try them….

Oh and Lisa…. Patti from GO Appetit said it was exciting to read your blog…

Those soups look very healthy and interesting flavors! Can’t say I’ve had any type of mango soup at all, if ever.
