Red Gold Tomatoes Review and Giveaway

I contacted Red Gold Tomatoes to do a review of their diced tomatoes. I was expected a little something from Red Gold. To my surprise this huge prize pack appeared on my doorstep. The kids and I had so much fun opening the box. I was floored to see this:



There is so much stuff!!!!!

All of the gifts were contained in this super cute. over sized Red Gold Tomato Can.

- Inside there were 3 sample cans of tomatoes - Plain, garlic, basil & oregano, and finally with green chili's
- 2 copies of an awesome cookbook "Heartwarming Recipes"
- Reusable shopping bag with the Red Gold Logo
- Magnet
- Magnetic Clip
- A copy of Red Gold Tomatoes Video Library and Media Assets DVD
- A Diecast Van Trailer with the Red Gold Logo
- Recipe Cards with various tomato soup recipes
- Floppy Jar opener


Let me start with a little history of Red Gold Tomatoes. Red Gold is a family owned Indiana based company that started in the 1940's. They grow all of their tomatoes locally in the Midwest (Michigan, Ohio, & Indiana). They don't just stop with canned tomatoes, they also have ketchup, tomato juice, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, chili beans, and so much more.

The tomatoes were good! (And that’s saying a lot from me because I hate tomatoes!) I checked out their prices at the grocery store and very reasonable.

For dinner one night I used one of the cans and one of the recipes from the provided cookbook. Everyone loved it! My husband liked using the one with chilis to make homemade salsa.

WIN IT!! Win an identical replica of the oversized, stuffed full of goodies can I that recieved.

MANDATORY:
