Wholesome Goodness Prize Pack Review and Giveaway

I was offered the opportunity to review products from Wholesome Goodnees, a healthy and tasty line of foods that are new to the United States. The products in the package I received are:

Kentucky City Style Barbecue Sauce
Almond Milk Chocolate Flavor
Garden Style Mild Salsa
Sea Salt Chips
Grilled Vegetable Chips
Multigrain & Flax Chips
Mountain Trail Mix
Tuxedo Trail Mix
Apple Cinnamon Omega Granola Bars
Quick Cook Steel Cut Oatmeal
Multigrain Oats Cereal

I enjoyed all of them. My favorite was the Apple Cinnamon Omega Granola Bars. They are small, but full of flavor. One serving, one bar, contains 2.5g of fat, 0g cholesterol, and 40mg of sodium. When I looked at the nutritional information on their products, I noticed that most of them are low sodium. I like this about Whole Goodness foods, because I prefer eating foods that are low in sodium.

I received my package in time for the party I had on Saturday. I put the chips out for my guests, and they loved them. The favorite of the chips was the Grilled Vegetable. Absolutely yummy. A serving size of these chips is about 16 chips. There are 7g of fat in one serving, with 80mg of sodium and 0 cholesterol.

Check out the ingredients in the chips.  There isn’t one that I don’t recognize.

Ingredients

Stone Ground Corn, Expeller Pressed Sunflower Oil, Vegetable Medley (Red & Green Bell Peppers, Broccoli, Tomato and Carrot), Toasted Corn Germ, Sprouted Ancient Whole Grain Medley (Buckwheat, Sorghum, Millet, Amaranth, and Quinoa), Dried Cane Syrup and Sea Salt.

Last night, my husband made meatballs using the Kentucky Style Barbecue sauce.  There’s no fat or cholesterol in this barbecue sauce, but there is 240mg of sodium per serving.  I ate 2 meatballs, and didn’t even get half of a serving of the barbecue sauce on them.  You don’t need to use a lot of this barbecue sauce on your meat.  It has a lot of flavor, and a little goes a long ways.

If you are on a gluten free diet, some of their products are gluten free.  Some are also Kosher.  You can check out the product information pages on their website to find out what the allergen information is for each of their products.

Wholesome Goodness is new to the United States, originally available only in Canada.  Now, they have their products in over 200 stores in NC, VA, MD and WV.  If you are not in one of those states, don’t worry.  As good as their foods are, they are bound to be available in more states soon.  In the meantime, Wholesome Goodness has offered to do a giveaway for my readers.  The prize pack will include one of each item that I received.  This giveaway starts now, and will end March 13, 2012.  Please leave one comment per entry.  The winner will be chosen by random.org and contacted by email.  Open to US only.
