Coolest Jump Rope Ever GIVEAWAY!!

Hey friends!

Are you ready for a fun giveaway??

Earlier this month, Progresso sent me an ENORMOUS package of soup to sample through MyBlogSpark.



Good thing I really like soup :)

They sent a bunch of their light and 100 calorie soups, as well as some low sodium soups, which made me happy because canned soup is always really sodium heavy.

In addition to the soup, they sent an awesome soup mug, which is now my new favorite! It’s the perfect size and even has a comfy handle :)


I received the package just after arriving home from my California trip, so it was perfect timing with my empty fridge! I immediately busted into the stash.


I combined half a can of the Manhattan Clam Chowder with half a can of the Reduced Sodium Garden Vegetable.



It was a delicious combination! Full of lots of chunky veggies, mmmm. I’d never had the Manhattan Clam Chowder before and it was great! I served it in my new bowl, of course :)


I’ve always loved canned soup — it’s such a great quick and easy meal when the fridge is empty or when I need something last minute to bring to work. I especially enjoyed the low sodium variety — I wish they would make all their soups low sodium.

The final thing that was included in my package was an AWESOME digital jump rope!!


It’s pretty much the coolest thing ever — not only does it count how many times you’ve jumped, but it can also show you the total miles or kilometers you’ve jumped and the amount of calories you’ve burned!

I tried it out immediately ;)

025024 Hehe :) So much fun!

So, want to win a Progresso gift pack of your very own??

They have offered to send one lucky fANNEtastic food reader the following:

  • Two cans of Progresso soup

  37. 37

    I’ve always been a big fan of soup, but more so recently. I think the cold weather has influenced that choice! haha My absolute favorite kind of soup is tomato. I know, I know…it’s one of the heaviest in sodium. But when I’ve had a bad day or I just can’t seem to get warm, tomato soup always comes to the rescue! It’s delicious! :-)

  38. 38

    souuuuuuuuuuuuuuup!!! i think i most love a realy good tomato soup (with a grilled cheese on a rainy portland day).

    My favorite kind of soup is Callaloo; it’s a Caribbean stew made with lots of okra.

  48. 48
    Katherine says:

    Hmmm this is a tough one!! I LOVE all types of soup, and as a vegetarian, they make up a huge part of my diet. I’m not sure if I can just choose one as my favorite! I think it’s an even tie between lentil soup, pasta fagioli, and escarole with bean. They are all SO yummy and SO healthy (depending on what they are made with). I have even convinced my skeptical, meat-eater boyfriend that soup can be a full meal with the right sides. (read: bread).

  49. 49

    I love a good homemade chicken noodle soup with tons of veggies.

  50. 50

    I LOVE corn chowder (or chicken corn chowder) for a thick soup. My lighter choices are beef vegetable or classic chicken noodle :)

  51. 51

    Taco soup! It’s so filling. But if it’s gotta be out of the can, I like something with a lot of veggies or really creamy tomato soup.

  52. 52

    i actually really like the progresso light vegetable soups. italian and southwestern<3 yum!

  53. 53
    Adventurer says:

    Hi Anne!!
    I love reading your blog! My favorite soup is my Grandmother’s. We all call it “Mum mum’s soup” (after her of course)! It pretty much vegetable soup with stew meat..and always skillet cornbread on the side! Yum!
    Thanks for the giveaway- Now I want to go jump rope :)

    Also, have you ever eaten at Sweet Green? One of my girlfriends and I are going to check it out tomorrow. I’m excited for the froyo (even though it’s cold)!!

  74. 74

    Split pea soup is a definite fav of mine! but since i’m sick right now…i’d have to say chicken noodle sounds delish :)

    PS: I TOTALLY did jump rope for heart back in the day, and if they had digital jump ropes then, it would have been wayyyyy cooler…but seeing as how there wasn’t internet or anything yet, i’m not surprised!!

    Oh my gosh I remember Jump Rope for the Heart!! We had that at my school :) That really would have been more awesome with digital jump ropes, ha! -Anne

    My favorite soup is probably lentil when it has chunks of carrot in it. I recently had a sesame soup with lemon, peas and carrots in it. But that was at a cafe, not from a can. It’s hard to find canned soup without MSG!
