Review and Giveaway - Farm Rich Snacks

Farm Rich is an awesome company based out of St. Simon's Island (off the coast of Georgia) which is committed to providing delicious and easy appetizers and snacks for the whole family. They offer a wide variety of wholesome goodies which are sure to please every different taste. 

I love that this company not only has the standard finger foods -- any good, fried/baked snack that you crave at a restaurant, you can now get from the grocery store. The bag has quite a large portion, which is good for many after-school snacks or for appetizers before dinner for a couple of nights. At my local store, they are only $5.99 a bag. When you think about the amount of food you get, on top of the quality, this is a great deal. Here's a little overview of the products that Farm Rich carries:

I was given two coupons to try free Farm Rich products in order to conduct this review. I was super excited, as I have seen many people buying these at the store (I work at a grocery store), but never got a chance to try them out myself. I picked the Cheese Sticks and the Jalapeno Peppers (both pictured below), though it took me about ten minutes to decide. I think I would be happy with any Farm Rich product! The Cheese Sticks and the Jalapeno Peppers come in a big, 44 or 52 oz resealable bag -- this is convenient for families that want to spread out their snacks over a few days. Here is some additional information about the Cheese Sticks and the Jalapeno Peppers:

Cheese Sticks

Nutrition Facts
" You may remember tasting your first cheese stick when you were a kid, probably while sitting around a table with your parents at one of your favorite restaurants. Now, you can introduce the wonders of cheese sticks to your own kids at home. In the process, you might even develop some sort of a cheese stick bond with them.
- Made with 100% real mozzarella cheese

- Breaded and seasoned to perfection
- Good source of calcium and protein

- 0g trans fat per serving
- Comes in 10 oz snack pack & 52 oz value pack"

Jalapeno Peppers

" Not every occasion has excitement built into it. In these instances, you have to add your own. You can do this by serving up our Farm Rich JalapeƱo Peppers. They have a little kick to them balanced by a smooth layer of cream cheese. Just what’s needed to get everyone’s excitement level headed in the right direction.
- Made with 100% real cream cheese
- Deliciously mild stuffed peppers
- 0g trans fat per serving
- Hot and delicious out of the oven
- Convenient, resealable packaging
- Also comes in a 44 oz value pack 

The Cheese Sticks and the Jalapeno Peppers had a great flavor and consistency. They were crunchy, but not overly. The Jalapeno Peppers were "chewable" (not stringy), and I really thought the cream cheese filling added something extra. I didn't feel as though the Jalapeno Peppers needed any dip, but I would probably add marinara to the Cheese Sticks. I am not much of a cook (I do like to experiment, though), so Farm Rich makes dinner easy! All you have to is pop them in the oven, and you've got a great appetizer or preparation necessary. The oven needs to be preheated to 450 degrees, and you need a single layer of your snacks. You cook them for approximately 10-14 minutes (conventional oven) for half a bag. My family really liked the Cheese Sticks and Jalapeno Peppers as well. We put them together for dinner, and were able to have them three separate times with the amount in the bag. They would be great to bring to a party, or for a late night snack as well.
