[This giveaway has ended -- thanks to all who entered, and please stay tuned for more great giveaways in the future!]
I’m a big fan of Bob’s Red Mill — I probably have about nine or ten of their products in my pantry right now, in fact. The quality is outstanding, and there’s just something about the simple, honest packaging that draws me in and reminds me of a bygone era. There’s no hype or flashy marketing — it’s just darn-good, real food.
Bob’s product line is extensive, with over 400 different flours, cereals, seeds, baking mixes, and whole grains. They have more than 50 organic products as well as a dedicated gluten-free line made in a separate facility.
I contacted them about getting involved with October: Unprocessed, and Cassidy Stockton, their Social Media Specialist, enthusiastically accepted the challenge.
Cassidy will be contributing a guest blog post during October — as part of the guest post series I’m putting together — and she’s donated three terrific sample packs for me to give away!
THREE lucky winners will receive one package each of Bob’s Red Mill Quinoa, Whole Grain Cornmeal, Hard White Whole Wheat Flour, and Steel Cut Oats!
Incidentally, their steel-cut oats are quite literally the world’s best oatmeal. They took first place at last year’s Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championship, and they’re headed back to Scotland next month to defend their title!
The giveaway is now open for entries, and will end on October 1st — so you will receive your sample pack during October and enjoy these grains during the unprocessed challenge.

The Fine Print
The giveaway ends at midnight on October 1st — the first day of our Unprocessed Challenge. I’ll select the winners at random from all of the eligible entries received, and post the results on October 2nd.
The maximum number of entries per person is four (one for commenting, one for taking the pledge, and one each for the tweets). You may comment and tweet as often as you like (please do!), but only your first ones count as entries.
If you’re a winner, you’ll need to email me your mailing address (no PO boxes, sorry) and phone number within three days, else I’ll choose another winner. I’ll then pass along your info to Bob’s, and they’ll ship your prize right to you! They have assured me your information will remain confidential.
If you include a link in your comment to your own contest, I’ll consider that spam and delete your comment. Of course, please do enter your blog’s URL in the “website” field on the form.
For my allergic and gluten-free friends: Cassidy will be happy to make substitutions as your needs require, so please feel free to enter too!
Thank you to Cassidy Stockton, Bob’s Red Mill, and everyone who enters!
