**CONTEST CLOSED, WINNER INFORMATION BELOW****
Several weeks ago I was asked by MyBlogSpark if I would be interested in sharing some information about Progresso’s “Souper You” contest and give one of you the opportunity to win a prize pack with 5 varieties of Progresso soup and a copy of “The Biggest Loser” Workout DVD. You know me and free, of course I said yes.
Unfortunately, I forgot to tell them I moved. They sent the stuff to my old address and I started getting e-mails saying “Why haven’t you posted about this yet?” to which I replied “because I don’t have the stuff yet.” Well, we finally got it straightened out and my package arrived last week. So, without further ado, here is some information about the contest that is about to end!

Okay, back to Heather- as soon as the package arrived, I realized I was not going to be able to review a fitness DVD. Silly thing called a hernia was not going to allow that.
Fortunately, my friend Carrie Miller was excited to try it out for me and write a review. Here is what she thought:
Thanks, Carrie! Sounds like the video is more of my (non-hernia) level than I expected.
Luckily, I still have the ability to eat soup, so the other day my sister Liz, her friend Mindy, Steve, and I busted in to them for lunch. I don’t usually buy Progresso soup, because 1) I’m not a fan of canned soup and 2) cost per serving is a bit higher than I like (if you feel the same way but love their soup, make sure to check out the above link for a coupon!). Honestly, I didn’t really know what to expect.
I tried the Light Chicken Noodle soup, because I was the least adventurous/most picky. It only had 70 calories per serving (all of them have two 1 cup servings per can), which impressed me. It was very brothy, but the noodles and chicken were pretty good. Unfortunately, I’m not a big salt fan and this soup has 690 mg, or 29% of your daily value. Much too salty for me.
My sister, however, is a HUGE salt fan, as well as a huge fan of canned soup in general. She had the Minestrone. It has 100 calories and the same sodium content as the Chicken Noodle, but it boasts a full serving of veggies. She really liked hers, but tried mine and thought it was too salty, as well.
Steve tried the Light New England clam chowder- 100 calories per serving, but that same high sodium content. He thought it was thin but he liked the flavor. I tried his and it didn’t seem nearly as salty as mine.
Mindy had the Light Beef Pot Roast. With only 80 calories per serving and 470 mg (20%) of sodium, of course the skinniest person picked the healthiest option. It also boasts a full serving of veggies. She liked hers, too. With the lower sodium content, it definitely had the least salty flavor, which is a bonus in my book.
One of these days, Steve and I will bust out the Wild Rice, but I probably won’t tell you about it unless it changes my life in some dramatic way.
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for- YOUR chance to win everything I’ve just told you about!
Because the folks at Progresso and MyBlogSpark are so nice, they want you to have the opportunity to try out some soup and a new workout DVD as well. Simply leave me a comment answering this question:
“Which of the Progresso Soup flavors are you most excited to incorporate into your weight management plan this New Year?”
Or you can say something else, I’ll still let you qualify if you just say “pick me, pick me!”
You have until midnight until Wednesday, February 22nd! And don’t forget to check out the Souper You contest at the link above for an opportunity to win even more cool stuff!
