Giveaway Day! Mrs. Renfros Salsas & Sauces!

I sent a barrage of emails/tweets before the holidays to get some new giveaways for the site and ended up with a lot of great stuff! Gotta make sure I remember them all! First up for the new year is Mrs. Renfros!

They sent me a sampler pack of 4 sauces - I got to choose which ones I wanted from their vast selection. The black bean salsa is something I discovered when I lived in Iowa and have been a fan of for years. That said - I decided to branch out and try four kinds I had never had before!

Ah cheese, how I miss you. I tried this back in 2010 (2 whole weeks ago) and have to say - it was a little disappointing. It had a bit of vinegar taste that I wasn't prepared for. Very "fake" cheesy - sorry Mrs. R!

Next up the Smoky Roasted Salsa - be sure to note the word SMOKY! The flavor is good but the smoke is a bit potent. I was really looking forward to this one but it's not my favorite. The black bean is much better.

Pineapple Salsa - I thought - well what the hell!?! Why not try it? Larry likes pineapple and so do I. Surprisingly this is REALLY GREAT! I have to say the pineapple is subtle and adds to it nicely. I never would have thought this would be my favorite over the roasted but we loved it!

Lastly - my favorite - the Mild Chow Chow! This is basically like a kick-ass relish. I went for the mild but definitely would like to try the hot. Larry isn't a relish fan so this whole jar is mine. I've used this on sandwiches, nachos and more. Basically I'm replacing cheese with this and it has a lot more flavor. I love it!

Now it's your turn - if you'd like to win a 4-pack sampler from Mrs. Renfros - just comment on this post what flavor you'd like to try from their site and be sure to leave contact information (either email or twitter) so I can get it touch with you if you're the winner.

You get an extra entry if you tweet the contest as well - be sure to leave a second comment letting me know you did and your twitter name. (Remember - I'm @foodhussy!)

Thanks again to Mrs. Renfros for the sample pack for me and for my readers! Good luck - I'll post the winner this Friday!
