Uncle Ben’s has been a staple in my house for many years. Uncle Ben’s instant rice can help me throw together a delicious meal without spending a fortune. It’s a time saver too, which we all know is important for busy Moms. Over the years Uncle Ben’s has added so many great products to their shelves, making it even easier to come up easy meals the family will love. Bistro Express gives us great tasting side dishes in just a few minutes time. Bistro Express Entrees are perfect for a quick and hearty meal, and the Fast and Fancy sides offer great flavours and cook in just ten minutes.
Uncle Ben’s has gone beyond great food, and has now launched a new Uncle Ben’s Canada facebook page. In this new community, you will find healthy and delicious recipes, dinner conversation starters and promotions hoping to establish a place at your dinner table. To celebrate the new Canadian community, they are kicking off a national video contest, Ben’s Beginners, to promote parents cooking with their children to teach them healthier eating habits for life. Participants will have the chance to win a grand prize of $30,000 CDN, with 10,000 CDN to be awarded as a cheque to the winner and $20,000 CDN to be awarded on behalf of the winner to the winner’s child’s school for Healthy Life Style Initiatives.
What a great contest! I love that it not only fosters parent/child time but also has a focus on healthy living and education.
To help you get in the cooking spirit, one of my lucky readers will win an Uncle Ben’s Prize Pack valued at $120. The basket includes six Bistro Express packages, oven mitts, cutting board, steel measuring cup, large and small tongs, large and small whisks, measuring cup set and measuring spoon set. It’s everything you need to get cooking!
