Winners of the 2013 Potato Lovers Month Giveaway

Potato Lovers Month Winners

Last Friday we said we were celebrating Potato Lovers Month by spreading the love through PotatOHs, and we really meant it! 

We had a lot of fun reading all of the reasons you love potatoes, how you like to cook them, your favorite types of potatoes, and much more! We are very thankful for all of your comments, and glad to see that so many of you truly love potatoes and enjoy eating them. We’re lucky to have fans who are true potato lovers!

Now the time has come to announce the winners! We picked 6 entries, and if you see your name and comment below, you’ve won!

Audrey: You stated all the reasons that potatoes are good and good for you, I can’t top that except to say my family loves all the ways I prepare them. From entrees to side dishes. Gnocchi, breads, the recipes are endless. It is, however, great to have them cooked (safely using your product) and ready to incorporate in to the recipe. And thanks for making it BPA free and recyclable. Making our world a cleaner, safer place for our children means a lot to me.

Sue: I love potatoes because they taste so good with salt pepper and butter. But they are not fattening so if someone wants to cut back on calories they are able to do so! I like them because they are filling so snacking later is not as desired. Potatoes rock!

Ann: Potatoes have always been a staple in our home. From when I was a young child, my favorite meals always included potatoes cooked in a variety of ways…either baked, mashed, and home fries. There are so many ways to cook them and we love them because they always had that feeling of fullness touch. There are always potatoes in our home, ready to cook!

Susan: What can be said about the humble tuber? It can literally solve world hunger! Never mind how much I love potatoes, as a Vegan of course they are a staple. It’s the bigger picture everyone is missing! With so many varieties and the sturdy longevity of this vegetable, well, entire villages could be well fed if potatoes were introduced into their diet. Protein, fiber, vitamins, as far as I’m concerned it is one of nature’s perfect foods. And they are so tasty!

Tracy: We really love potatoes here at our house! You can fix them so many ways. When I ask the kids what we should have for dinner usually they will all ask for some kind of potatoes!

Tonya: I grew up on potatoes, they are still my favorite today can make so many different ways. Especially the red and yellow ones are my favorite, but I love them all. I make all kinds of recipes with potatoes one healthy one is red potatoes,fresh garlic, bell green peppers, bell red peppers, or any vegetable you love with or without tofu cut up onion olive oil dash pepper and salt bake until done or use Mrs. Dash garlic seasoning.

Winners will be receiving a variety pack of Express Bake PotatOHs shipped right to their doorstep. Check your inbox — we’ll be contacting you to get your details so we can ship your prize ASAP!

Congratulations to the winners, thanks to everyone who participated, and keep an eye out for our next giveaway – you could win some of our delicious microwave potatoes!
 

Celebrate Potato Lovers Month in February with PotatOH! (Giveaway)

Potato Lovers 2013

February is one of our favorite times of the year, because for a whole month, we celebrate the vegetable that we most love to eat: potatoes! That’s right, it’s National Potato Lovers Month, and what better way to celebrate than spreading the love through PotatOHs?

Potatoes are very good to us, and there’s a whole lot to love. They:

  • Are low in calories, with only 110 in a medium-sized spud
  • Are fat, cholesterol and sodium-free, so they’re easy on your heart and on your weight
  • Are full of fiber, helping keep us fuller longer
  • Are gluten-free, providing healthy, natural and satisfying meals for people with gluten sensitivity
  • Are can be made almost any way you can imagine, and you can bake ’em, fry ’em, grill ’em, microwave ’em, smash ’em, steam ’em and…well, you get the point!

PotatOHs give you even more to love about potatoes! Here are some of the ways they make life a little easier and make eating healthy more convenient. They:

  • Save you time by fully cooking in just 4-7 minutes in the microwave
  • Are double-washed and sealed in our recyclable BPA-free SavorSeal™ wrap that keeps in the flavor and natural goodness of potatoes when cooking in the microwave
  • Steam as they cook in the microwave, two ways the U.S. Potato Board recommends cooking potatoes to preserve nutrients
  • Provide great taste and a perfect texture that you just can’t get using cloth bags or paper towels, or just microwaving a potato on a plate
  • Offer a variety of choices, whether you like good ol’ russets, sweet potatoes, red or gold potatoes, or fingerlings!
  • To learn more about why PotatOHs are an easy shortcut to a healthy potato meal, watch our video below

There are many reasons to love potatoes, and we want to hear yours! Celebrate Potato Lovers Month by telling us why YOU love potatoes.

6 lucky potato lovers will receive a FREE variety pack of Express Bake PotatOHs. That’s 3 russets, 3 sweet potatoes, and 1 tray pack each of Fingerling, Gold and Ruby Jubileez!

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and include your email address so we can contact you. We love all of our fans, but we ship fresh potatoes and like to get them to your doorstep quick, so only potato lovers in the U.S. are eligible. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 13, so check our blog and Facebook page for updates.

Have a great weekend, and good luck!

 

Winners of the November Thanksgiving Giveaway

Thanksgiving Giveaway Winners

On Wednesday we asked you to share a potato dish you plan to serve at Thanksgiving, and to tell us something you are thankful for this year. Want to know what we’re thankful for? That over 85 of you shared your potato dishes and shared many wonderful reasons for which you are giving thanks!

We truly appreciate that you took time to comment and share your love of potatoes and heartwarming stories with us. We’re lucky to have such amazing and thoughtful fans!

Now the time has come to announce the winners! We picked 6 entries, and if you see your name and comment below, you’ve won!

 

Bella: We roast our white and sweet potatoes in the pan with the turkey! Delicious! I am so grateful for my family because it has been a very difficult few years! And very thankful for Lily, who just turned a year old!

Stephanie Mccrary: We will have glazed sweet potatoes, sweet potato pie, and the most popular dish, mashed potatoes from scratch. I am just so thankful to live in a country, where I can freely celebrate and give thanks. Thanks to our troops!

Joanne Snyder: We will be having both mashed potatoes and candied sweet potatoes! 
I am thankful for my health, my husband Wes and our wonderful children their families, and for our friends. I am also thankful for our military serving overseas. We have a grand daughter and nephew in the US Air Force, 4 grandsons in the Army, and a son-in-law and another grand daughter in The National Guard. 
We are a truly blessed family!

Amy Bledsoe: Potatoes Romanoff will be on our table this year. I love this dish as it can be eaten hot or cold. I am thankful for my son and my mom. Without them I have no clue where I would be in my life. They have been my rock during multiple health problems and surgeries.

Donna: Our potato dishes for Thanksgiving will be mashed potatoes and candied yams (I live in the deep south where sweet potatoes are fresh and plentiful right now). These side dishes really add so much to the entire Thanksgiving meal! I am very thankful for my family, they mean so much to me! I am also thankful for a very inactive 2012 hurricane season. Seven years ago our home was flooded by Hurricane Rita and then five years ago we flooded again for Hurricane Ike. So, uneventful hurricane seasons on the Louisiana gulf coast make me very, very happy! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

L. Friedman: We will have a sweet “PotatOH” with just some black pepper and a little buter or olive oil. We are grateful for this wonderful year, which included the 1st granddaughter’s arrival.

 

Winners will be receiving a variety pack of Express Bake PotatOHs shipped right to their doorstep. Check your inbox — we’ll be contacting you to arrange shipping faster than it takes for a PotatOH to cook in the microwave!
