DOUBLE Friday Giveaway! Specialty Olive Oil and Gourmet Gluten Free Bread!

by Anjali @ The Picky Eater on January 21, 2011

Hi Everyone! I’m very excited to announce my first giveaway of the new year – and given that it is my first giveaway this year, I thought I’d kick things off with a DOUBLE giveaway! I received so many great products over the holidays that I just couldn’t wait to space them out into multiple giveaways 🙂

So how does a double giveaway work? Well you can enter to win one or BOTH of the products: you just have to specify which products you’d like in your comment. I’ll run my random selection of the winner twice (so if you are super lucky and enter for both products you could win both!)

Ok – so first up – we have amazing Specialty Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Olivari. They sent me a wonderful gift package complete with 1 bottle of EVOO – with a super cool pop-up pour spout! They also sent me a garlic press, a few coupons for their other olive oils, and some fun recipe cards.

Their olive oil is amazingly smooth and very fruity – you can smell the wonderful olive flavor as you’re pouring it on a salad or into a pan! Their ingredients are 100% natural and they are proponents of the beneficial Mediterranean diet: known for fresh fruits and veggies, healthy fats and lighter proteins! One lucky reader will win this exact same gift box courtesy of Olivari!

My second foodie giveaway is in partnership with Rudi’s Gluten Free Bakery! They were kind enough to send me a sample pack of three of their gluten free breads: the original, multigrain and cinnamon raisin. I have to say – the cinnamon raisin was my personal favorite, but all three of the varieties were great!

While they don’t taste EXACTLY like regular bread – they are pretty close and the best gluten-free breads I’ve ever had! [Recent Update: I just tried the bread again after toasting it in the toaster oven on low. After warming the bread, it became even softer and fluffier with a really great, slightly crispy texture on the outside! I was really impressed. It actually tasted exactly like toast I’d eat in the morning – with a nice cakey texture to the bread. And my husband who normally hates gluten-free bread, asked me to make a sandwich for him with Rudi’s bread – and he LOVED it. Way to go Rudi’s!!] Bread lovers won’t be disappointed with this product – and the best part is, they are 100% natural as well. Many of the ingredients are organic and all the breads are freshly baked in Rudi’s bakery. One lucky reader will win this exact same gift package and all 3 breads courtesy of Rudi’s Bakery!

Now the important part:

So we would like to enter for both of the giveaways and will love either one….we love finding new gluten free products and we ABSOLUTELY LOVE olive oil…it is very delicious and healthy for daughter as well as for the rest of the crew….:)
