Giveaway deadline EXTENDED!

Hi Everyone! So as you know – I’m running an awesome giveaway on my blog for 479° Gourmet Popcorn! The original deadline was today, Saturday at 11:59pm. But one of my readers very smartly pointed out that she doesn’t tend to read email or be around her computer during the weekend (which is probably a good thing!) And so she missed my giveaway last time and only by chance was able to check it out this time.

And so – for her and everyone else who “unplugs” during the weekend, I’m extending my giveaway deadline to: Thursday, December 9th at 5:00pm PST! So now you have tons of time to enter my giveaway!!

I’ll be announcing the winner on Friday (December 10th) morning when I launch my next giveaway 🙂 Be sure to enter soon and tell your family/friends! For directions on how to enter, and more details about the 479 gourmet popcorn you’ll receive, click here.

Foodie Friday Giveaway: 479° Gourmet Popcorn!!

Woohoo – it’s Friday! That means – the weekend is only a few hours away, no work for 2 days, my hubby and I are FINALLY seeing Harry Potter, and it’s time for another GIVEAWAY! And I promise, this giveaway is really awesome 🙂 But first things first: who won the last giveaway? Well, that would be the wonderful Amanda – congrats!!

Amanda – you should be receiving your honey very soon. Thanks so much to all of you who entered – I really appreciated your comments and support! 🙂 And now you have a chance to win again – with 479° Popcorn! I met the awesome owners of 479° a few weeks ago, and they were kind enough to send me the Globetrotter sampler pack to try.

Isn’t their packaging super cute? 🙂 And I have to say – it is seriously some of the best popcorn I’ve ever had. Their flavors are really inventive, and their popcorn is popped to perfection – they actually bake every batch to order – which means that you’ll always end up with super fresh popcorn when it arrives at your doorstep! And not only that, all of their popcorn is organic, made by hand in small batches, local / sustainable, and of course – amazingly flavorful! I’d highly recommend trying out this product – you won’t be disappointed!

The Globetrotter sampler pack comes with FIVE different flavors of popcorn:

  1. Chipotle Caramel + Almonds: smoky, spicy, rich and sweet – and the almonds add a wonderful crunch!
  2. Ginger Sesame Caramel: ginger infused caramel also gives you that great sweet and spicy flavor, and the sesame seeds give it a great nutty finish!
  3. Pimentòn de La Vera: smoky Spanish paprika with bursts of ripe organic tomato and onion – you’ll never taste popcorn like this!
  4. Black Truffle + White Cheddar: a great twist on a classic – the black truffle oil adds such an aromatic flavor to the popcorn
  5. Madras Curry Coconut + Cashews: reminds me of something I’d get in India – the curry is colorful and fragrant and the cashews are a savory treat 🙂

And one lucky reader will WIN the Globetrotter Sampler Pack as part of this giveaway! I think my favorite flavor was the Chipotle Caramel + Almonds – but they’re all amazingly good! Here’s what the popcorn looks like out of the bag – doesn’t the caramel just call out to you? 🙂
