Riceworks giveaway!

Guess what? The first time I actually had a Riceworks chip was live at the BlogHer booth down in San Diego just in August.  I picked up my five free bags of Riceworks chips and I got to sample tons of different flavors. I tried to get all five flavors but I went to a few different grocery stores and couldn’t find the Tangy BBQ flavor. Shoot!

They modeled for me, as I took portraits of them. They were nice and quiet for me, which I appreciated. Until I dug in and crunched them all with my teeth. Mmmffchoompghhh.

My boyfriend and I ended up opening up the four different flavors and doing a little taste test over the weekend to see which one we deemed as our favorite.

Left to right: Sweet Chili, Parmesan, Salsa Fresca, Sea Salt

What I had initially thought were going to be my favorites since I’m a plain chip type of gal, I was surprised when the ones I picked out were the bottom of my taste buds favorite list. I actually ended up liking the Salsa Fresca , Sweet Chili, Parm, then Sea Salt. When the taste test was over, I ended up putting the rest of the chips back in the bags, and took the bowl of Salsa Fresca with me to the table and finishing off the bowl. Soo good.

Scotts top faves were “the first three”, he didn’t pick out just one favorite and just said he’d eat them all if he was given them…guys!

We both thought the sea salt was a bit too bland and I suggest it tasted like those rice cakes.

It definitely has some great benefits as Riceworks is made with whole grain brown rice, it’s wheat and gluten free (well “duh” I suppose, since it’s made out of rice). Vegans? Yep, you can eat (some flavors of) these, and it’s also Celiac friendly. If you’re not feeling like eating them directly out of the bag, you can actually cook with Riceworks and make stuff like Salsa Fresca Fajita Salad, or Sweet Chili Inside Out Spring Rolls. Drooling already.

Guess what else?

Looks like Alfie’s on guard of the front door, so nobody steals our Riceworks chips!

I’m going to give away five free bags for you guys as well! What do you think of that? I’m wondering if there should be five separate winners? (one coupon each) or one winner who will get all five bags? What do you think it should be? Leave a suggestion in the comments below. Comments are open, so you can enter as many times as you’d like. But be creative! Tell me what flavors you think Riceworks should make next, or how you’d share them!

Let’s get it started. The quicker we get this giveaway on the go, the quicker these chips will be in your own hands!

Let’s say the contest ends…..ahh, how about next week? Sunday October 2, 2011 at 2pm EST. That’s enough time sure, right? :) Contest is open to residents of Canada and the US of A. Oh yeah.

Good luck!

Pssst. If you can’t wait til next week to see whose won, you can get a $1.00 off coupon on Riceworks website — that is, if you confess your snacking sins.

  1. OMG I love Riceworks chips! Especially the Sweet Chili and Salsa Fresh. They are somewhat pricey though. I would love for them to make some kind of vinegar flavour, I love vinegar haha. One awesome thing about these chips is that they are gluten free (I’ve been trying to go gluten free for a while, some things are hard to cut out though).

  2. i never tried those chips. :-( i would love if there would be 5 wihnners(one coupon each). so more have a chance to in, and maybe get a chance to try a bag for free for the first time. ;-)

  3. Also, they should totally make a ketchup flavour! I’m a sucker for ketchup chips! Or a sundried tomato/asiago flavour.. Mmmm.

  4. These are great, esp for vegan me and a gluten-free friend! I’d like to see some sweeter varieties like vegan chocolate or sugar-cinnamon…or a really really hot jalapeno!

  5. I’ve seen these many times in store before but have never tried them before! They should make Salt N’ Malt Vinegar flavour!

  6. I haven’t had the chance to give ’em a go yet as I’m cheap and they’re usually down the “hippy aisle” which Scott seems to think will give him herpes or something. :P I’m gonna have to second someone else’s request for a Ketchup flavour..though that may be slightly dangerous to my waistline.

    Nancy says: LOL! Where do you shop? They’re not in the hippy aisle at my grocery hahaha.

  7. Also, I’ve never seen these in my local store. So if I won, I’d demand my local grocery store start carrying them! Lol

    Nancy says: I bet they do carry them! I thought they were only sold in the USA until I kept my eyes peeled when the Riceworks folks told me they’re carried in tons of places. They’re always by the Quaker rice cakes stuff. Check it out! (or in the “Hippy” aisle like Kaylee mentioned haha)

  8. I’m not saying I WOULD share a bag of Riceworks, but IF I was going to, I’d leave a trail of them on the ground for my kids to follow home from school. Then I’d race home and eat the whole bag before they got back ;)

  9. Oh my gah! Best giveaway evarrrrr! I want to try the parm so bad and the salsa ones too my kids would love these too! Be creative? Ok I will have to think of something… That could take a while :) good thing I have unlimited enteries bahahaha to be cotinued ;)

  10. Yummy, yummy in my tummy… Riceworks chips are so yummy… Nancy Nancy your so fancy… ……. Haha uhm, let me win and make me happy?

    Woot hey at least I tried? Lmao ;) I asked my kids to help that’s what we came up with! Lol

  11. I’m a college student paying my way through school! These chips would help me ace my midterms next month! I’d love to try all five flavors: Sweet Chili, Parmesan, Salsa Fresca, Sea Salt!!

  12. I think you should give them to 5 different people so that more people get to share the goodness of the chips. You should let the first person choose which one they want, then the second and so on.

  13. I have never seen these around here but it has been AGES since I have been in the store because I don’t do our grocery shopping so that is probably why lol

  14. Believe it are not these are my husband’s favorite chips. I was excited to see this giveaway, plus the coupon. Yeah!! Joe would love these. He just turned 60. I would love to win this for him. He deserves them because he works so hard at being a high school special needs teacher.

  15. I love the Salsa Fresca Flavor! It’s delicious! It would be great if they made a Tomato Basil flavor! I think it’d be a hit!
    As for winners, I think it’d be nice if 5 people each got 1 bag :)
