{giveaway} Pomi Tomatoes

When tomatoes aren't available, why reach for a can of tomatoes full of chemicals when there is a natural alternative?

Pomi is a 100% all natural, BPA free tomato product straight from Italy. Packaged in a SIG Combibloc, the tomatoes are kept extremely fresh and have a long shelf life, bringing he straight off the vine taste you crave, but can’t necessarily obtain if you don’t have fresh tomatoes.

No preservatives, added water, artificial flavor,  additives, or citric acid. Pomi watches the process from the seed (non genetically modified), to harvest (pesticide free), and packaging (which is recyclable). Additionally it is low in sodium [10 mg. vs 250 – 400 mg sodium for Del Monte and Hunts]. Hands down, Pomi is the healthiest and safest tomato product on the market.

Wanna try?

Three lucky winners will get a chance to try a Pomi "sampler pack" which includes one box of Pomi crushed tomatoes and one box of Pomi strained tomatoes.

For a chance to win, simply leave a comment here telling me why you'd like to try this and be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win. That's it!

Winners will be picked by random.org, giveaway ends Saturday June 4, good luck!

Comments are now closed. Congratulations to the 3 winners:

My husband makes the most amazing pasta sauce. He is so passionate about his sauce and is always "tweaking" it by adding new things. I would love to put these tomatoes in his Father's Day package so he can try our his sauce with them. (That also means he'll make the sauce and I can use it with all my favorite Skinnytaste recipes - hee hee)

Mandi said...

We use tomatoes for so many of our recipes. We are transitioning from a fast-food/on-the-go eating habit into a more waist-trimming/healthy/stay-at-home diet. Our toddler loves his spaghetti and it's great to not pour spaghetti sauce out of a can or a jar. Making our own sauce is so much more healthy.

With an Italian husband, we use tomatoes all the time. However, having an Italian mother-in-law who is an amazing cook, it's hard for me to compete. If these tomatoes are as good as you claim, maybe they can help to give me an edge so that my meals can taste as good (or, dare I say, better?) than my mother-in-law's!!! Lol You can contact me at compactkid14@yahoo.com. Fingers crossed!! :)
