Review and giveaway: Progresso soups!
I promise, this is not going to become a weight-loss/fitness blog- and I have some jewelry/clothing giveaways lined up to start soon. :) That being said, back to today's topic!
I recently had the great fortune of being able to review Progresso Soups. I've been a big fan of Progresso soups for years. When I was working in an office, I pretty much always had a can of Progresso soup in my desk drawer and considered it one of my favorite lunch foods. Since I'm a mom to two little kids that don't leave much free time, I love the convenience of being able to just open a can, pop it in the microwave and have my lunch ready to go whenever I can grab a free second. And, now that I'm trying to lose weight, I appreciate these soups even more, since there are a number of Progresso soups in the Light and 100 calorie lines that are 100 calories or less per serving. I often eat the whole can, and it is only a few hundred calories (or 2.5 points if you're a Weight Watchers person), and I'm filled up.
Do you love Progresso too? Do you want to win a makeover? If so, visit www.Progresso.com/SouperYou to enter their contest that's going on now, through March 15th. You just have to submit an essay (200 characters or less) saying why you love the soup and why you need a makeover. 10 finalists will be selected and we'll be able to vote on them from March 29th to April 12. You can also download a coupon at the site, good for $1 off three Progresso soups. Three lucky grand prize winners will win a trip for two to New York City from May 21st-23rd including roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in a NYC hotel, a full makeover, a $1,000 wardrobe shopping spree and personal consultation at a New York department store.
Now for my giveaway.
Here at the blog the prize is a little less exciting, but still fun. One of you will be able to win a Progresso prize pack- it contains 2 cans of soup, a digital jump rope that counts jumps and calories burned, and a cool soup mug. I received the mug in my pack as well, and can tell you that it's so handy! It holds a whole can of soup and is microwavable- and it doesn't get hot like many of my other dishes do in the microwave. Very handy!
