Foster Farms Gluten-Free Giveaway!!

Recently, I was contacted by the fabulous people over at Foster Farms to trial their new gluten-free corn dogs. I have made corn dogs myself in the past (see recipe here) but it usually take a lot of time and effort. My husband and I used to have Fair food Fridays during the fall where we would make different types of our favorite fair foods that were gluten-free but when I started doing pageants that tradition stopped for awhile. Also, since moving to South Carolina my kitchen isn't as big as my old one, so I have had to downsize some of my cooking utensils and my big fryer went with it.

That being said, when I found out that a well-known company was putting out their own version of a gluten-free and dairy-free corn dog and they wanted to send me samples, I got really excited. Corn dogs are one of those things that reminds me of being a kid when everything was easier. My mother used to treat my sister and I to corn dogs (or cheese dogs, remember those?) at the mall if we behaved. Not the best food for a balanced diet as an adult, I will admit, however, there is just something about the taste of a corn dog that makes me feel like everything will be ok. Occasionally, as a celiac, I need that, don't you?

As part of my excitement and the generosity of the company, they sent me a sample to taste (Check out the picture below) as well as five coupons for a free box of corn dogs if you enter my giveaway! These corn dogs are certified gluten-free by GIG, contain less than 10ppm of gluten per serving, and feature a 100% chicken frank dipped twice in a honey crunchy batter. What's not to love?!

Check my Facebook page to enter. Simply tell me your favorite memory associated with corn dogs or your favorite way to eat them in a comment under the post. You must also like the Foster Farms Facebook page but as soon as you do both things, you're entered!

Winners will be announced Sunday evening!! Good luck!
