Spreading Smucker’s Traditions Contest {Gift Basket Giveaway}

Smuckers, a company that I love, is having an awesome contest right now that I thought you guys would love to know about.

From now until October 12th, Smuckers invites you to share your special family memories and recipes in the second annual “Spreading Smucker’s Traditions” contest. One grand prize winner will win a five day, four night family trip for eight to Walt Disney World Resort where they can create new family memories. Four runner up winners will win $100 gift baskets. What a fun way to put those recipes to good use! To enter and learn more about the contest, please visit www.smuckers.com.

To enter, consumers are asked to share an original family recipe that incorporates at least ¼ cup of Smucker’s jams, jellies, preserves, or fruit butter and the story behind how their recipe makes family celebrations special. The recipe must have been passed down for at least two generations or is currently being passed on to a second generation, and needs to include names of all family members involved in the sharing of the recipe. Entries will be accepted from August 26 through October 12, 2009. Contest finalist recipes will be selected and scored on taste, creativity, ease of preparation, appearance and nutritional balance, while the essays will be scored on relevance to theme, creative expression, and clarity. After the submission phase, an online vote will determine which of five finalist recipes will win the grand prize. For Official Rules and entry forms, visit www.smuckers.com.

We love Smuckers products in my home. We pretty much exclusively buy their reduced sugar jellies. The other day Smuckers sent us a lovely gift basket filled with a bunch of their products to try out. All I can say is YUM! Check it out:
