Ernie's Epic Foods (Salsa)-Review and Giveaway!!




Okay, I have to admit something...chips and salsa are a major staple in my diet. I literally could eat chips and salsa 7 days a week, and sometimes have! Whether it's a side with my lunch, a late-night snack...or the appetizer at a Mexican restaurant, I love chips and salsa!  I mean seriously, I am a chip-and-salsa connoisseur :P


I recently found out about a company called Ernie's Epic Foods, and they sent me 2 whole jars of Ernie's Salsa for review!  Wow! Talk about a fun product to review :)  Right up my aisle, for sure! I received a 2-pack that included a jar of Gourmet Red Salsa and a jar of Perfect Peach Salsa.  I tried the Gourmet Red variety first. At first taste it is spicy...but then you realize there is also a hint of sweet in it too! Very different from any other salsa I've ever tried...and I like it!  I finally decided it was mean to keep all this delicious salsa to myself, so I shared some with my sister, who is also a huge chips-and-salsa fan! She also really enjoyed the unique flavor of the Red Gourmet salsa.  After giving her a sample, though...the rest of it is mine!  (Just kidding. I'll give her a little more :)



Then I opened the Perfect Peach salsa.  I have never tried peach salsa before, although I have had some friends tell me it is really good. Well, I don't know about other peach salsas, but after trying Ernie's Perfect Peach salsa-I have to agree! It is delicious! A somewhat different taste than regular red salsa, but definitely something I will be eating again (and again, and again...)  
Now, for those of you who ask "How spicy are Ernie's salsas?", I have to quote Ernie's statement. "hot enough to get your attention but sweet enough to keep you coming back for more.”  Very true, and the perfect description, I'd say!





I thought the history of Ernie's Salsas was very interesting as well:
"Long before Ernie’s salsas were at grocery stores, he was making batches for friends and family and serving it at parties. Even in those early days, he noticed that salsa and social gatherings go together like chips and...well…salsa.
So, with vegetables from his garden and plenty of friends and family to test recipes on, Ernie got to work.
It took 25 years of tweaking and refining his recipes, but finally Ernie's "Gourmet Red" and "Perfect Peach" were born. Anyone who has tasted his salsas would agree, all the work was worth it."

Yes, I agree wholeheartedly...all the work was worth it!

Ernie's Salsa can be purchased at various grocery stores...check out the list on Ernie's website!


Ernie has offered to give a 2-pack of Salsa (1 jar Red Gourmet and 1 jar Perfect Peach) to one of my readers!!
