Chiquita Mom Prize Pack Review & Giveaway {5 Winners!}

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~



There's no doubt about it, we love Chiquita bananas at our home! They are the most consumed fruit in our household and Ethan has been known to eat up to 2 'nanas' (as he still calls them) a day and still begging for more. I always put a frozen banana in my green smoothies and I make a loaf of whole wheat banana bread every few days. I was honored when I was picked to be a Chiquita Mom and was sent a fabulous prize pack of items to try out.



I had such fun going through the prize pack! It consisted of a bright yellow reusable shopping bag, several recipe cards, freezer bags for saving those extra ripe bananas, and a booklet with nutrition facts and tips about Chiquita bananas. The kids weren't left out! Also included was a cute sippy cup and a bowl with fork and spoon set. Ethan loves the kids set and uses it often. Of course the prize pack comes with a coupon for free Chiquita bananas as well.

Check out the Chiquita Mom page for nutrition tips and recipes. Some of these recipes are with raw bananas as well as simple recipes with baking bananas.  I love the Moist Chiquita Banana and Sweet Potato Casserole recipe!


WIN IT! Chiquita Bananas is giving away a Chiquita Mom Prize Pack (pictured above, but does not include the kids set) to 5 Take Time to Smell the Rose Readers!
