Green Giant Seasoned Steamers --- review & giveaway #MyBlogSpark

Do you get tired of the same vegetables for dinner? I sure do! My kids have very limited tastes and sometimes I like to spice things up for a little variety.  A girl does get tired of corn, corn, and corn!  So I was excited to see a new product come out from Green Giant, namely their new Green Giant Seasoned SteamersTM

Green Giant Seasoned SteamersTM come in six varieties.  They are sauce-free, yet seasoned vegetables that can add a little pizzazz to your dinner, whether you use the vegetables in with a meat or as a side dish.  The six varieties are:

Mediterranean blend 
Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli 
Brussel Sprouts with Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper 
Honey Roasted Sweet Corn 
Honey Dijon Carrots 
Backyard Grilled Potatoes

Thanks to Green Giant via MyBlogSpark, I was sent a free coupon so that I could choose a variety to serve up at my house.

Which one did I choose?  The Backyard Grilled Potatoes!  I was hoping to satisfy my husband's taste for peppers.  The kids were not all that enthused and didn't eat any of them.  I tried!

Honestly, I didn't like them either, but I'm not a fan of peppers.  He said that the peppers were too strong (and too numerous) and could be cut back a little.  The other reason he and I didn't like them as much was because the potatoes tasted like peppers and not at all like potatoes. To be fair, we lost power at our home due to the hurricane for about 18 hours and though this package survived in the freezer, that may have affected the taste.

But just because we didn't like this particular variety doesn't mean I'll give up!  Though my Food Lion had only two varieties to choose from, I'll be looking for the Mediterranean blend and the Honey Roasted Sweet Corn at another store and give them a try at my family's dinner table.

Save!  Who doesn't love a coupon?
