Pumpkin Season is Finally Here and Giant Has Great Items + Enter To Win a $25 Giant Gift Card!September 11, 2015
Just in time for September, GIANT Food Stores is bringing pumpkin back as part of its Limited Time Originals private label. More than 50 seasonal pumpkin-packed products can be found in stores soon, but they are only available for a limited time. Once these pumpkin products sell out, they sell out. I always get excited around this time of year, because pumpkin season is the best season! At the end of this post, you'll find my YouTube video of the unboxing and the Rafflecopter giveaway where you'll have the chance to win a $25 Giant Gift Card!
Now just a heads up that the following pictures that are included in this post were taken the day I received this package. I have since taste tested all of these products however, I was unable to take picture because 2 days later, the camera to my phone got messed up so now I'm just waiting for my replacement to come in. Bad news is that my phone is back order so I will not get it for another week. Eeeeek!
The first product in this box were the Pumpkin Spiced Heat & Eat Pecans. My husband, my daughter, and I were the only ones that were able to east these. My son has a nut allergy so sadly we made sure he was upstairs when we heated this up and taste tested them. These were amazing! They reminded us of the hot nuts sold in Times Square in NYC, except pumpkin spiced. I could not stop eating these. We had to make sure that when we finished the bag, that we rinsed it out and threw it away outside. We didn't want to risk my son coming into contact with these. Every single time we ate a pecan, we would think about different recipes to add these to. We thought of cupcakes, muffins, granola bars, ice cream toppings, salad toppings, and a slew of others.
The next product was the Pumpkin Pasta Sauce. I must admit that I was a bit scared to try this. I looked at it and cringed. I didn't want to taste it but that was only because it was orange. PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO TASTE SOMETHING BECAUSE IT LOOKS DIFFERENT, BECAUSE YOU WILL REGRET IT! This was great! I made spaghetti last and let me tell you that it added just the right amount of pumpkin taste. It was a huge hit!
The next product was the pumpkin puree. I used this to make cookies. Pumpkin sugar cookies to be exact. Those are great. You can find plenty of recipes online. I pulled the recipe off of google so it should be quite easy to find.
The next product was a Pumpkin pancake syrup. Yes you read that correctly. A Pumpkin syrup! I poured this over my Kellogg's brown cinnamon swirl waffles. I can't even explain the yumminess in my mouth. It was totally amazing!
The final product was of course some Pumpkin Seed Tortilla Chips! I loved these! I didn't want to stop eating these and I didn't feel guilty about it because hello, they're whole grain!
