Product Review: Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations


Remember this delicious looking creation I tweeted from BlogHer'12?

Hillshire Farm's Expo Booth

After the conference, I received an email from Hillshire Farm asking me to review their products and host a giveaway on Making Cents of It. Of course I immediately said yes because I had already gone out searching for the Gourmet Creations Chicken Apple with Gouda Cheese which I had a few times at the conference (it was yummier than the lunch being served so I went back). As a new product it's not easy to find yet. I went to Shoprite, Pathmark, and Acme before finally finding it on the shelf at Giant. That's right, I went to four different stores searching for this product but that's how much I enjoyed the sample.

While apple doesn't sound like something you'd want in your sausage, it gives it an amazing flavor. It was sweet, but not too sweet. I cooked it up in the morning to pair with my eggs for a simple breakfast. The sweet flavor complemented, but didn't overpower the rest of the breakfast.

The new Gourmet Creations come in a total of four varieties. I also tasted the Beef & Jalapeno with Monterey Jack Cheese but it was too hot for me. As a point of reference, I'm not a fan of spicy food and even find mild wings to be too hot at most places. Therefore, if you like a kick you can't go by my opinion of the food.

Don't forget to check out the Hillshire Farm's website for recipe ideas. The Gourmet Creations were even featured on Rachel Ray.

Disclaimer: I was given coupons for free Hillshire Farm's products to review. I also received additional coupons for a giveaway which will be featured on an independent post. There was no compensation for this review and all opinions are mine.
