Wanchai Ferry Frozen Meals / Yoplait Yogurt Whips

Congratulations #8 and #63 - Tricia and K.Rock!

Please email financefoodie [at] gmail [dot] com with your mailing address and prize choice (Yoplait or Wanchai giftpack) so I can send your prize!*

*In case of the same request from both winners, the one who emails me first with their contact info will claim that prize, the other winner will receive the alternative prize pack. You have three days (72 hours) to contact me before you forfeit your prize to an alternate winner. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


As many of you know, I love testing new foods and am a huge sucker for cool food products at the grocery store. So I was pretty pumped when the folks at MyBlogSpark offered to sponsor my breakfast and lunch for the day with a few new products that were being introduced to the market. Although this was a detour in my (somewhat futile attempt at) learning to cook, I was excited to see what was in store for me!

For breakfast, I was sent a gift pack with two cups of Yoplait Whips (Yoplait’s new line of fluffy whipped yogurt), a travel cooler, Popsicle molds (?), and a set of 12 color-changing spoons. I was a bit confused on why I received the Popsicle molds but then realized I could freeze the Yoplait Whips in the molds to make a yogurt crème pop! Although I thought the Whips were way too sweet for breakfast, I could see myself enjoying these cups (or pops) as a yummy and healthy snack on a hot summer day.


For lunch, I was sent the new line of Wanchai Ferry frozen entrees, along with two bamboo placemats, silver chopsticks, and Asian rice bowls for my “Stay at Home” meal for two. Each of the Wanchai frozen entrée has all the ingredients needed to prepare a complete Chinese meal for 2 in only 14 minutes. I chose the Shrimp Lo Mein flavor, which was pretty tasty for a frozen meal.


So readers, this brings me to the GIVEAWAY portion on the story. MyBlogSpark has generously agreed to give one Yoplait giftpack and one Wanchai Ferry giftpack (both pictured above) to a random reader who answers this question in my comments.


“What cool product have you recently discovered at the supermarket/corner store?”

I will pick my TWO winners using a random integer generator in one week (Aug. 19th).

Comments will close at 5:00pm EST. Winner will be announced later in the evening.

A pre-packaged sack of assorted fruits -- three granny smith apples, three golden delicious apples, and three oranges. I hate picking out fruits and trying to put them in cellophane bags which are impossible to peel open, so this wins my coolest item at a supermarket award.

Oscar said...

yay for random integers!! hope all is well, like the website

I've discovered 1)a Houston based company's hummus packaged with pita chips

Athena! I just got back from a restaurant weekend dinner at Rialto. Delicious.

jsc123 said...

My husband and I have been trying really hard to watch what we eat.
We recently discovered Friday's spinach Artichoke cheese dip and Smart Ones Brownie Ala Mode in the freezer section of Walmart.
Both are delicious and low in fat.
So no guilt.
Thank you so much for the chance to win.

Ancho chili paste - just squeeze a bit out when you need it. Seal it back up. Saves LOTS of time and effort.

I have recently found that Tombstone has made one of their pizza's with a garlic flavor taste and my boys have gone wild over this pizza. For a frozen pizza it has become their very favorite.

Thanks for stopping by my site (And Twins make 5!) to enter my giveaways! Have a great day.

clynsg said...

This isn't new, but it is the most recent item that I found that was a little different. The individual packets for drinks like Crystal Light that I can keep in my purse and turn my water into something I will actually drink with my meal. (I generally don't like plain water!).

the new flavors of triscuits are DELICIOUS - wheat fire roasted tomato

E. Thai said...

Have been following your blog for a while. Used to work at Fidelity Investment and was part-owner of a Thai restaurant in Cambridge, so yes finance and food go together!

Denise said...

I love Gourmet Garden's Herb Blends. They come in a tube and are located in the produce section. They keep in the fridge much longer than fresh herbs and taste almost as good.

The coolest thing I've found at the grocery store is actually a new deodorant. I know that's probably not what you meant, but that's all I've found in a long while. THe new Dove deodorant, Ultimate Visibly Smooth smells great and really works. After the first time I used it, I didn't have to shave the next day like always. I think everyone should try it!

degood said...

I just found out that Dole makes a fresh pineapple slice that is prepackaged and great to throw in a lunch. they were on sale buy 1 get one free last week at safeway so I stocked up and put them in the freezer and now they act as an ice pack to help keep my lunch cool until I eat it and then I eat it as an afternoon snack.

Sonya said...

krstrpp said...

I recently discovered greek style yogurt. The plain flavor mixed with dill seasoning makes the absolute best veggie dip! And since it comes in individual sizes, you don't waste any; you just make it fresh each time you want some! Thanks for the chance to win one of the prize packs! (krstrpp at hotmail dot com)

Hi Athena-

Just finished eating my way across San Fransicso - we should get together for a good munch sometime!

Janet and Maya said...

Hmmmm, tough question for me! This doesn't fit the food category but it is sold at my local supermarket. I tried the new Bounce bar that you stick in your dryer and it last for four months. I love it!

I've become so price conscious and coupon crazy, that I don't try to many new things unless they are deeply discounted. I feel kind of sad to say that because I truly love good food. I'm anxious for our economy/financial situation to improve so I can return to experimenting with new things.

Thanks for a great question, I'm looking forward to reading everyone else's responses.

I'm a huge fan of Yoplait - I had it for the first time 35 years ago in France - and have been eating it ever since.

I've never tried Wanchai Ferry, but would love to. The pics at the website look so good that my stomach growled in anticipation!

Thanks for doing giveaway!

Hmm the tri-colored gnocchi at Target is amazing for a shelf stable product and perfect with a sauce or just butter and fresh parm for a really fast meal.
