As if providing us with guilt-free goodies wasn’t enough, some of our favorite food brands are running INSANE contests as we type this...Check these out and good luck! 

We sniffed out a bunch of amazing contests (our TOP ATE, to be exact) for you to enter, from some of our favorite food companies. Please note that these are NOT ads; we are NOT being paid to feature these and there is no purchase necessary to enter.  We just thought this stuff was cool, and that you might enjoy entering - and possibly winning. Weeee!

 

The Contest: “Do The Dip, Win a Trip” Sweepstakes.  They’re giving away four 5-day trips for 4 to Orlando, FL, complete with airfare, hotel rooms, theme park passes and $1,000 in spending cash!  100 others can win portable DVD players.  Hurry…ends November 1st!

HG's Pick:  Pretzels ‘n Cheez Single Serve snacks.  These individual packs of salty pretzel sticks and creamy cheese dip have only 90 calories and 3.5 grams of fat.  They could come in “handi” on your plane ride!

 

The Contest: “Win a Home Gym” Instant Win Game.  Win a deluxe gym set worth over $4,000.  We’re talking a Bowflex Extreme Home Gym, a treadmill, an elliptical machine and a weights set. BTW, you can't enter this one online.

HG's Pick:  The Light, 35-calorie, creamy cheese wedges in flavors like Original Swiss, French Onion, and Garlic & Herb.  Use ‘em in recipes (cheese sauces!) or as a guilt-free cream cheese substitute.  (Pssst... this stuff is most famous for being a key ingredient in our Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo.

 

The Contest: "Pass and Snack in Paradise with the Mannings" Sweepstakes.  How does 4 days in Paradise Island, Bahamas with your three closest pals sound?  Airfare, hotel, and spending cash are all included in this prize pack.  Also, we hear some football players are going to be there...

HG's Pick: It's tough to choose just one product from the company that brings us all those 100 Calorie Packs.  But we’re currently hooked on the 100 Calorie Ritz Chips Minis.  And, of course, the Oreo Thin Crisps.  And the Chips Ahoy! Thin Crisps.  I guess we pretty much love them all.

 

The Contest: "A Beautiful Buffet for the Holidays" Sweepstakes.  We love LOVE this awesome and original prize pack.  A triple buffet serving station, a stylin’ assortment of terrycloth kitchen accessories, and a full line of seasoning blends and marinades?!?  Party time...Woohoo!

HG's Pick:  We heart all of Mrs. Dash's seasonings.  But right now, we’re feelin’ the Lemon Pepper stuff.  We sorta can’t believe that it’s salt-free; it makes the perfect replacement for salt and butter on corn on the cob, and it’s also great for adding some zazzle to soups.  Fancy!

 

The Contest: "Spruce Up Your House with Maxwell House" Instant Win Game.  Up for grabs is over $500,000 in cash and prizes.  Every month until next March, they’re giving away 10K in cold, hard cash!  Other prizes include a TV/ DVD/ CD & MP3 player, a groovy home rotisserie oven, and a premium hot-beverage-making station.  Wowsers!   (FYI - you have to find specially marked cans or enter by mail!)

HG's Pick:  It’s no secret that we’re Millstone fanatics when it comes to our coffee.  But we’re also kinda sweet on Max House’s Filter Packs.  They're perfect for those of us who hate to grind and measure.

 

The Contest:  Post Selects "B & B Getaway" Sweepstakes.  It’s cool enough that the Post people are offering up a 3-day getaway with airfare and car rental.  But the fact that you get to pick your destination from over 4,000 bed ‘n breakfasts is super-cool.   We love you, Post.

HG's Pick: Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal Bars make an awesome on-the-go breakfast or mid-day snack.  They come in Banana Nut, Cranberry Almond and Oatmeal Raisin, and these whole grain treats contain just 130 – 140 calories and 3 – 4 grams of fat each.  Mmmmm!  

 

The Contest: "One Millionth Tofurky Roast" Contest. In the alterna-turkey business since ’95, these guys are speeding towards the big one million in Tofurky sales.  They’re givin’ an adorable electric motor scooter to the person who IDs the number of tofurkys they’ll have sold by this coming New Year's Day.  They hit 882,310 last January 1st...

HG's Pick: Hickory Smoked Tofurky Deli Slices.  This thin-sliced, savory turkey alternative has only around 30 calories and a gram of fat per slice…plus a whole gram of fiber in each!  Load up a low-cal tortilla with a few of these and some lettuce, tomato, and zesty mustard.  Mmmm…    

 

The Contest: "Cool Whip Free Groceries" Instant Win Game.  We’re talking two grand prizes of free groceries for an entire year!  And in case you’re wondering, it comes to over 800 bucks a month!  Plus, 100 other winners get a solid $100 to blow at the supermarket.  How many tubs of Cool Whip Free will that get us?  Look for details on specially marked tubs, or enter by mail...

HG's Pick: Umm…this one is a no-brainer.  Cool Whip Free (with just 15 calories a serving and no fat) is good on everything!  Pudding, frozen yogurt, low-cal cookies, a spoon…
