Sharing Giant News with Green Giant new Veggie Tortilla Chips and Sweet Potato Chips and a Giveaway!



It's always exciting to share news and I have one big to share with you. In December we will celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. My husband and I met in September 1988 and were married three months later in December 1988. We have plans to visit Paris to celebrate in January or February. Since at the time we had not gone on a honeymoon trip it will be special to celebrate in France. I have never travelled to France and it has always been a dream of mine to go. Will be sharing pictures of the trip when we get back.

In the meantime we can celebrate with Green Giant. He also have big news to share - two brand-new types of chips: Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips (Zesty Cheddar Flavour) and Multigrain Sweet Potato (Sea Salt Flavour). They are both delicious. I am a big fan of veggie chips. I served the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips with homemade hummus topped with fresh veggies. Can't beat that! Anything with cheddar will win me. I also like the packaging a lot. It makes you want to pick couple bags for your next party.  And the good news for you is that you can get a coupon for $0.50 off to try one bag for yourself. Here how you can claim your coupon:

  3. Congratulations on your upcoming trip to France to celebrate your marriage! How romantic! I've only been once (in 1988) and would just love to return with my husband too! Do I have big news you ask? Well as a matter of fact, I was just promoted this week to Associate Dean of the business college on my campus. I'm a bit scared; it's a huge position. Congrats again on your anniversary trip and thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  6. Happy Anniversary! I am SO SO SO happy for you Helene! You so deserve to be on the top of the Eiffle Tower for your 25th wedding anniversary.
    I have been there many times - as I took students on Europe Tours during Spring breaks for a few years... but there is nothing like being there on your own. I hope you will have a good 10 days.
    XOXOXO

  50. Hi - In the form it says to follow @LifeMadeDelicious - but when i click on it and try to follow, twitter says that the page does not exist. I "think" that it is supposed to be @LifeMadeDelish - which I am following and which shows as the account for general mills products and has a big pic of the 'jolly green giant' and links to the webpage lifemadedelicious.ca. I've counted it as a twitter follow entry - but if I'm wrong, then pls ignore the entry. Just wanted to let you know... thanks!
