Bob's Red Mill Samples

[This giveaway ended on April 18th -- thanks to all who entered, and please stay tuned for more great giveaways in the future!]

Longtime Eating Rules readers already know that I’m a huge fan of Bob’s Red Mill.  Their 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.

In my Bob’s giveaway last year, I highlighted some of their more popular whole grain products (Quinoa, Cornmeal, Steel Cut Oats, and Whole Wheat Flour).  This time, I want to showcase some of their products that might not yet be on your radar.

Case in point: They’ve just come out with a 100% Whole Wheat Pearl Couscous (also known as Israeli Couscous).  How awesome is that?

The giveaway is simple: THREE lucky winners will each receive FOUR different Bob’s Red Mill products of their choosing, from the following list:

Whole Wheat Pearl Couscous (so new, it’s not even on their website yet!)
Dried Blueberries (no sugar added!)

Full disclosure:  Bob’s Red Mill is an advertiser on Eating Rules (they’re paying for an ad in the sidebar, not for this post). Other than a box of free samples — and two awesome Bob’s mugs — I’m receiving no compensation for this post/giveaway. (By the way, did I mention that I met Bob last month? He’s the man!)

The giveaway ends at 11:59pm on April 18th.  I’ll select the winners at random from all of the eligible entries received, and post the results shortly thereafter.

Limit of three entries per person: One for your original comment, one for tweeting and posting an additional comment, and one for sharing on facebook and posting an additional comment. I will be picking the winners from all of the comments received, so please be sure to leave a comment for each type of entry.

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 blog or site, I’ll consider that spam and delete your comment, sorry.  Of course, please do enter your site’s URL in the “website” field on the form.

This giveaway is open to U.S. Residents only, since we are limited to shipping within the U.S.  Although you may enter up to three times, you may only win once.  Odds of winning will depend on the number of entries received. Offer void where prohibited by law. Your mileage may vary.

Thank you to Cassidy Stockton, Bob’s Red Mill, and everyone who enters!

    I’m interested in:
    Whole Wheat Pearl Couscous – I love couscous, and it would love me if it was whole grain.
    10-Grain Pancake Mix – hello? pancakes! :)
    Grande Whole Grain Cereal – This sounds like it would be great in salads.
    Creamy Rye Flakes Hot Cereal – I love rye bread and rye crackers, and I’m intrigued by a rye hot cereal.

    I love Bob’s pancake mix, so I’d definitely like to try that. I’m also curious to try the soup mixes (Whole Grains & Beans Soup Mix & Bountiful Black Bean Soup Mix) and the no-sugar blueberries sound delish!

    YUM!! I love Bob’s Red Mill products. I would get Nutritional Yeast so I don’t have to eat naked popcorn, Dried Blueberries, GF Grits/Polenta, and Bountiful Black Bean Soup Mix. I could even see eating all of these on the same day, if not during the same meal!

    I would like to try the gluten free items, blueberries and nutrional yeast. I can’t tolerate gluten and the blueberries look really good to ne because I JUST learned that I like blueberries and have been using them a lot. Oh, and I just live nutritional yeast and I bet that bob’s yeast is super healthy!

    I would like to try the dried blueberries, because YUM! I would also like to try the corn grits/polenta, because I love me some polenta and have never tried making it at home. I would also love the black bean soup mix, for an easy, hearty meal. And I’d like the pancacke mix, because I already use it and really like it.

    I’d like to try the pancake mix (love pancakes!), the couscous (I’d turn it into a cold pasta salad with bell peppers and feta and kalamata olives), the whole grain cereal, and the blueberries (I’d combine the last two!).

    I love Bob’s products. Planning to cook some red lentils for supper. I would like to try Whole Wheat Pearl Couscous, 10-Grain Pancake Mix, Dried Blueberries and Whole Grains & Beans Soup Mix because those are some products that aren’t available in my area yet.
