Country Crock “Spread the Love of Vegetables” Review & Giveaway

by Nicole on May 25, 2011

Name of Product: Country Crock “Spread the Love of Vegetables” Campaign

Where can the product be purchased: Country Crock can be purchased at grocers nationwide

Description of Product: “Parents know it’s often difficult to get the family to eat their vegetables, which are such an important part of every meal (as seen in a USA Today article on April 13, “Only 14% of parents say their kids eat at least five vegetables a day.”). rCountry Crock aims to help by making vegetables even more delicious. With 70% less saturated fat than butter, Country Crock ensures your veggies are not only nutritious but also super tasty! (Butter contains 11g total fat, 7g saturated fat per serving.)

Starting 5/16, when Nicole’s Nickels readers go to the Country Crock Facebook page to check it out and let you know what they like best, they can also visit the “Love Your Veggies” tab (on the left-hand side) to submit a photo of their family enjoying veggies for the chance to win $100 worth of groceries! They can upload a photo per week, for 8 weeks (through 7/11) for a chance to win each week, and will also get a chance to be featured on the Country Crock Facebook wall as the “family of the week.” (official rules can be found on the “Love Your Veggies tab). ”

Review of Product: I received a fabulous Country Crock “Spread the Love of Vegetable” kit that included various interactive items like a “Today I Ate a Rainbow” kids’ calendar, vegetable chopper, kids’ aprons, gardening how-to kit, vegetable cookbook, and of course, Country Crock samples! I also received a $30 American Express Gift Card to use for purchasing all of the vegetables needed to make better-for-you veggie recipe creations.  What an awesome kit! I love the food chopper – it makes it so easy to get your veggies prepped for cooking and even kids can help out with this task now! The grocery tote went right into the car so I can use it when I shop now – so much better for the environment than those plastic bags at the store.  The child’s apron had a veggie face – too cute and my little helper put it on immediately after we opened the package.  The vegetable cookbook was awesome and I’ve used it several times since we received it.  It has so many creative ideas for veggies – and the pictures and how-to instructions make cooking a breeze even for a novice.  The Veggie Tales coloring book was a hit as well and the kid’s calendar to keep track of fruit and vegetable servings in a day lends a positive reinforcement perspective to healthy eating.  The biggest hit of all though was the gardening how-to kit called Veggie Garden.  The variety we received was Larry’s Salsa which included tomato and banana pepper.  What a fabulous way to show kids how veggies grow and even help them start to grow their own garden! Of course the package also included a Country Crock sample.  We’ve been using it on our veggies since we received it and are hooked!

Giveaway: The folks over at Country Crock have graciously decided to give one (1) lucky Nicole’s Nickels reader a $200 giftcard to buy healthy groceries! Another reader will win their own Country Crock “Spread the Love of Vegetables” prize package just like the one I received!
