Kick Off 2013 with Fresh Meals from Schwan's + GIVEAWAY!

I have always heard of Schwan's but have never ordered any thing from them. When I lived in Santa Fe, I had a friend who would order from them every week. She told me she loved Schwan's because they would deliver the food to her house. And we lived out in the boonies so that was a plus.

Besides the convenience, she really liked the food and, most importantly, so did her kids. It was a quick and easy option for her because we worked long hours and had a long drive home.

Since then, I had been meaning to try the products but never did. I do know they deliver to our area because I see the Schwan's trucks around our neighborhood pretty often.

When I was contacted to review some Schwan's products, I decided to give them a try for myself. Schwan's has been in business for 60 years. They have entrees, appetizers and desserts. With 350 items to choose from, it is easy to find something that everyone in the family will love.

Schwan's also has healthier and fresh food like the LiveSmart options that include Unbreaded Chicken Breast Filets and Mini Beef Pot Roast, sizzling Chicken Marinara & Tortellini and Southwest Fiesta skillet meals. And best of all, they have guilt-free LiveSmart Ice Cream Sandwiches or Wild Berry Frozen Yogurt.

I received a box of the Unbreaded Chicken Filets and the Wild Berry Frozen Yogurt. I immediately opened the Frozen Yogurt and it was delicious. I even gave some to my hubby and he didn't even realize that it was frozen yogurt and not ice cream. It was delicious and I would buy this.

The chicken breasts were delicious as well. I can't say much about chicken breasts but I made some chicken fried rice and the meat was tender and moist. Chicken breasts can be expensive at the grocery store but a 5 pound bag is under $20 and that is a great deal especially since they are delivered to your house.

The products came in a Styrofoam container with dry ice so they were still frozen and fresh. It is great to have fresh food delivered to your door!

Would I recommend these items? Yes! Now I really want to try more of the Schwan's food. I wish I had discovered this before when I was working full time. It would have been great to come home and just pop some of the Schwan's food into the oven and have dinner ready in a jiffy!

Thanks to the people at Schwan's I have some chicken breasts and frozen yogurt to give away to one lucky reader. YUMMO! Just enter on the Raffle copter widget below!!

  5. They have the best chocolate sundae crunch bars and chocolate sundae cones. Better than what you can get at the grocery store and at a good price, too. My friend swears by their corn. Their chicken breasts are great quality, which is getting more and more difficult to find, even at high-end grocers. It's sad when price is no concern and you still can't find decent meats at the store. I've never bought anything from Schwann's that I didn't really like. And the kids always loved it, too! Oh, and their ice cream sandwiches. I must seem like an ice cream freak, and really, I hardly eat it. But I do know what good is. :)
