Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Giveaway!

Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Sampler

[This giveaway has ended — thanks to all who entered, and please stay tuned for more great giveaways in the future!]


I’m a big fan of Bob’s Red Mill — I probably have about nine or ten of their products in my pantry right now, in fact.  The quality is outstanding, and there’s just something about the simple, honest packaging that draws me in and reminds me of a bygone era.  There’s no hype or flashy marketing — it’s just darn-good, real food.

Bob’s product line is extensive, with over 400 different flours, cereals, seeds, baking mixes, and whole grains.  They have more than 50 organic products as well as a dedicated gluten-free line made in a separate facility.

I contacted them about getting involved with October: Unprocessed, and Cassidy Stockton, their Social Media Specialist, enthusiastically accepted the challenge.

Cassidy will be contributing a guest blog post during October — as part of the guest post series I’m putting together — and she’s donated three terrific sample packs for me to give away!

THREE lucky winners will receive one package each of Bob’s Red Mill Quinoa, Whole Grain Cornmeal, Hard White Whole Wheat Flour, and Steel Cut Oats!

Incidentally, their steel-cut oats are quite literally the world’s best oatmeal.  They took first place at last year’s Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championship, and they’re headed back to Scotland next month to defend their title!

The giveaway is now open for entries, and will end on October 1st — so you will receive your sample pack during October and enjoy these grains during the unprocessed challenge.

I love whole grains because they’re A) filling and B) cost-effective! Folks may not see them as such at first, but the higher the quality and better the grain, the more nutrition and satiety one feels after eating it! I’d love to win this, if only for the extra quinoa and that hard white flour… my mind’s just reeling at the possibilities with that one!

i love whole grains because they’re Real Food! not bleached, chemically altered, food-like products companies attempt to pass off as food. i think my favorite out of this bunch is the quinoa because it reminds me of Native American dishes i like to cook.

I love whole grains. I know my family is getting the nutrients they need and they taste great too. My favorite write now is cracked wheat that I use to make bread and oatmeal a staple in our house! We also use a lot of Bob’s Red Mills products.

I love baking with whole grains! Bobs red mill ground in the food processor makes a great flour substitute that I use in pancake batter and muffin mixes. My little ones don’t even realize that I snuck in the healthy stuff!

I have never tried quinoa until this year. I just absolutely love it. I now fix this more often than brown rice. Polenta is another favorite of mine, and I prefer using the whole grain cornmeal. I have never tried the steel cut oats. I should. I do like oatmeal. I have made a concerted effort to mostly eat whole grain, if not all. These whole-grain wholesomeness has been very important in my effort to lose weight, plus I feel so much better when eating 100% whole grains. I would gladly accept the October challenge.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these products! Have not tried their oats yet though.
The most valuable thing I learned from this company is that cream of wheat is white, processed wheat. You have to actually get their whole grain farina (I think that’s what it’s called) to get whole grain cream of wheat. Such an eye opener!

I’ve gotten to the point now where I refuse to cook or bake with anything other than whole grains. The flavor is incredible. I’ll never go back to “the white stuff”.

I totally dig Bob’s whole grain goodness. In fact I’ve got a bag of his milled flax seed in my fridge-an excellent addition/topping to yogurt, almond butter, anything u want bump up with flax. 🙂

I’ve been hooked on quinoa for the last 2 years…quinoa salad is a staple in my house these days. I’d love to branch out and try some other of Bob’s products!

I am most excited to try the Org. Hard White Wheat Flour because I am trying to create a soft sourdough and I would like to see how this flour works. Also, I love using my bread machine and this flour is supposed to be great for that too!

I love quinoa and steel cut oats, but am most excited about baking with the hard white whole wheat flour!

I know whole grains are healthy and the fiber is good for you! I’ve never used Bob’s Red Mill products though and I’ve never tasted quinoa either but I would love to try both!
