Ernie's Epic Foods - Review & Giveaway **CLOSED**

What is your most favorite snack? My answer - chips and salsa. I could go through a whole jar of salsa if I didn't watch what I was doing. (Honestly, I've done it before.) My mom recently introduced me to peach salsa and peach mango salsa. All I can say is I'm glad Aldi has tortilla chips for only $0.99.

I did some research and found this awesome guy - Ernie - who has been making salsa for twenty five years. He graciously sent me two jars of salsa, regular and peach (!!!) to review. I was so excited when I arrived home one day and found the box from Ernie sitting by my door. I raced into the kitchen and opened it up. I had to try the peach salsa first of course. Luckily the boys were with my mom because I sat there and ate half the jar. Seriously, it's that good. And Ernie's Salsas are also low sodium and fat free, so it's good for you! So I don't have to feel that bad about eating half the jar in one sitting...and the other half a few hours later.

That same night, hubby and I had fajitas for dinner. Now, let me just tell you, hubby is not that big a fan of salsa. He'll eat like 1/4 teaspoon on his fajita (while I am dumping 1/4 cup on there) He made the remark "Well, I guess you need me to try your salsa" To which I replied "Only if you want to dear." (All the while thinking "Are you crazy?! I don't want you anywhere near this salsa!") Unfortunately - for me - he liked it. And he actually put more than 1/4 teaspoon on his fajita. Which says something right there.

One thing my hubby doesn't like about salsa is the spice. He's not really big on spicy foods. I however LOVE spicy foods. I add hot peppers or hot sauce to almost everything. When asked how spicy his salsas are 'Ernie’s answer is always, “hot enough to get your attention but sweet enough to keep you coming back for more.” ' And that answer is totally true. Both the peach and the gourmet red salsa were spicy enough for me but mild enough for hubby.

Ernie has agreed to offer a two pack of his salsas as a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive 1 jar of Gourmet Red and 1 jar of Perfect Peach! Don't want to wait for a giveaway? Head over here to find out where to buy this delicious salsa!
