Are you all familiar with the company Tastefully Simple? If so, I can pretty much guess you are a fan! And if you are not familiar, you need to make yourself as soon as possible! I first discovered this company many years ago when my best friend Adrianne was a consultant for them. It only took one party for me to be convinced this stuff was great. I was hooked! They sell a variety of items ranging from spices, dip mixes, breads, desserts, drinks, to oils and dressings. And the best part about his stuff (aside from the amazing taste) is that they can either be enjoyed right out of the container or be prepared with two additional ingredients or less. It honestly doesn't get much easier then this. They are perfect to bring along as a side dish for all those parties coming up this summer! Here is a little more information about the company from their website:
Tastefully Simple is a direct sales company based in Alexandria, Minnesota.
What We Do
We offer a wide selection of convenient, easy-to-prepare foods designed to help people spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying the rest of their lives. Our products are available through independent Tastefully Simple consultants primarily at home taste-testing parties nationwide.
From tasty appetizers to luscious desserts, our catalog includes over 60 simple and delicious foods - ready with two ingredients or less.
What We BelieveWhen my best friend had to stop selling Tastefully Simple due to family reasons, I have to admit I freaked out a little. I kinda, may have hoarded my Bountiful Beer Bread Mix (oh man, this stuff is yummy!) and the Garlic Garlic Seasoning, my personal favorite, started being used more and more sparingly then I was used to. But luckily for me Adrianne passed me onto her new consultant, Melissa Kroft, so I can now keep my pantry stocked with all my favorites.
Tastefully Simple is proud to be a member of the Direct Selling Association - the organization that maintains standards of practice for direct sales companies across the nation. We're also honored to belong to the Better Business Bureau, which promotes the highest standards for business ethics and customer service in the marketplace.
As with all direct sales companies, hosting a party is the way to go. You get to eat the entire time, socialize with your friends, and the rewards are amazing (can you say freebies?!) But if you aren't the Party-Hosting-Type, you can also order directly through your personal consultant and online- which makes life so convenient.
Please take a moment and head over to Tastefully Simple's Website and look around. I can pretty much guarantee that if you are a food lover, there will be something that will grab your attention! Want to give some of these yummies a try? Well today is seriously your lucky day. Melissa is providing one lucky winner all of this awesome stuff below for free! The Bountiful Beer Bread, like I mentioned earlier, is a big time personal favorite of mine. I haven't met a soul that wasn't hooked on it after giving it a taste. And the Hoppin' Jalapeno Dip Mix is my new favorite. It is great as a dip for veggies and chips, but we also love, love it as a spread for grilled steak sandwiches. Yumm-o. The cookbook is a great go-to, especially with Party Season approaching, and now you will have the perfect spreader to go along with the dip!
