Garden of Eatin' Tortilla Chip Party (Giveaway!)

Garden of Eatin’ Tortilla Chip Party (Giveaway!)

January 14, 2011

Whenever anyone asks me if I’m a “salty” or a “sweet person,” I can’t decide. Sometimes I love chocolate chip cookies and vanilla cupcakes more than life. And other times, I feel like I could eat a whole bag of chips in one sitting (no, I feel no shame!). I’ve never been much of a potato chip person (unless you give me a mean french onion dip with them) and have always headed toward tortilla chips (with spicy salsa) and Sun Chips.

A couple years ago, Chris and I discovered Garden of Eatin’ tortilla chips. More specifically, their Red Hot Blues. And we never turned back. Would it be bad if I admitted I could eat half a bag of these in one sitting with no problem? So, when Garden of Eatin’ contacted us and asked if we wanted to do a giveaway, I immediately said yes. They sent us a fun little party pack with plenty of Garden of Eatin’ chips and paper-goods.

Chels and I planned an evening to enjoy the chips and some other snacks. While I was already obsessed with Red Hot Blues, I was also excited to try the Multi Grain Blues with Sea Salt. Garden of Eatin’ chips are all naturally made with organic corn. And they’re sturdier and taste way better than your typical tortilla chip.

We also indulged in some Hickory Farms cheese, sausage, and crackers from Hickory Farms that we got through Foodbuzz’s featured publisher program. Most perfect party food ever!

The multigrain chips were awesome, but I think I’m still partial to the Red Hot Blues. They definitely have a kick to them and you don’t even need a “dipper” when eating them. However, Garden of Eatin’s tortilla chips are even more delicious when you serve them with buffalo chicken dip.

And guacamole.

And for something a bit healthier, minted pea mash.

  5. I am generally a sweet person but could go to town on chips and dip or nachos for sure! I was hoping for the Eagles…. but they are out:-( We usually have a Super Bowl party at our apartment.

  6. kim says:

    I am heading to my favorite friend’s house. They have a huge party every year with televisions set up in every room and yes I mean EVERY room!!!! =)

  11. Kristin says:

    About 10 years ago we had a pretty major family trauma on Super Bowl Sunday and it kinda ruined the game for us. Now we pretty much hang out and keep it low key with fun snackables and board games with the game on in the background.

  12. Holly H. says:

    Hosting a small party – what a great excuse to have snacks!

  13. i’m not into football but i LOVE superbowl food, and the commercials too!

  14. Erica says:

    I have always wanted to try those Red Hot Blues chips. They sound fantastic. I am a HUGE tortilla chip fan and definitely a salty vs. sweet girl. For the superbowl….we’re going to be away! But I obviously want the Pats to be in it & win it….I will be watching! Your guac looks super fresh too.

  15. I love these chips! What a sweet giveaway – and all of your dips look yummy too! Guac is my favorite šŸ™‚

  16. Simply Life says:

    I plan on celebrating by eating something delicious! I don’t ever pay attention to the game but love the food that usually goes with them! šŸ™‚

  17. NTE says:

    I do not care about the Superbowl (sacrilege, I know), but will use it as an opportunity to eat good, cheesy things and watch my brother in law yell at the television.

  18. Beth says:

    I’ll be celebrating my 30th birthday on Superbowl Sunday and I look forward to spending time with family and friends and watching the Pats win!! šŸ™‚

  19. Linda says:

    with a few friends and some great food!

  20. Lesa says:

    Silly question…the Patriots of course! Are the chips vegan? I will most likely be making vegan chili and cornbread, which after many people taste tested it said it was the best chili and cornbread! If not for the Super Bowl then for the play off games. I guess it depends on who makes it to the final game, that is when my plans will be finalized. Go Pats!

  21. Jena says:

    Probably watching it with the in-laws – they have the best TV! It’s really just an excuse for me to spoil my husband’s family with yummy goodies. šŸ™‚

  22. Lisa says:

    I don’t have a tv, so I probably won’t be watching the Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to win those tasty chips anyway. I’ll just have to find something else to celebrate them with.

  23. Stephanie says:

    Since I’ve moved to Seattle this past summer AND have a sports nut boyfriend, I have to say that I must support him and I hope, hope, hope by some miracle, the Seahawks make it to the Super Bowl! (*crossing fingers now!) Even if they don’t make it, (I know, the odds are against them) I would love to at least have these tasty snacks to enjoy to you know, ease mine and my boyfriend’s pain! šŸ˜‰

  24. Michelle says:

    Great giveaway! I’m obviously hoping for the Pats to be in the Super Bowl and we’ll be celebrating with friends, beer and good food!

    PATS! I’ve never tried these chips before – I’m dying to!

  28. Jen says:

    Since the Patriots will be in the Superbowl, I will be doing it up with friends and getting all nervous during the game.

  29. Reeni says:

    The dips look so good – love the buffalo chicken one! I don’t care who goes to the Superbowl because I just use it as an excuse to make a whole bunch of indulgent munchie food! It’s all about the eating, Snow boarding looks fun! You’re braver than I.

  30. Kerstin says:

  39. Jenny says:

    I’m planning on making 5 different kinds of dips for good dippin’! i hope to make them healthy AND delicious, to fool those boys into eating vegetables!

  41. Lanita Canup says:

    I don’t know what I’m doing for the superbowl yet, but I’d like to see the Jets make it!

  49. Sharon says:

    Oh, I am so bummed that the Patriots did not win today…Not sure who I’ll be rooting for at the Super bowl….Certainly NOT the Jets…but I will be eating those Garden of Eatin chips with some sort of wonderful dip! And I would love to win your giveaway!!

  50. Lacy Lambert says:

    So I’m clueless when it comes to football, it’s always about the party! šŸ™‚ And I can throw a party no matter who goes to the Superbowl!

  51. Natalie says:

    I LOVE SB Sunday. I get together with my boyfriend and all of his fraternity buddies. I cook yummy, greasy apps for them and they all swoon over my cooking! It makes me feel proud and special!

  52. Not sure who I’m watching it with yet (besides my husband!), but I’d love to see the Steelers in it! šŸ™‚

  53. Melissa says:

    Well I would’ve liked to see the Pats in the Superbowl, but that’s not happening this year. I pay more attention to the commercials than the game, but guys are so much happier when the Pats win! I’m having brunch that morning and then not sure on game watching plans, but I’ll bring these chips with me if I win.
    Your guac looks delicious and I’ve never tried Garden of Eatin brand chips, would love to win this and try them!

  54. Andi says:

    Any recipe for the buffalo chicken dip? It looks wonderful!

  55. Is it sad that I don’t care who plays in the Super Bowl so long as I get some wings, pizza and other delicious party food? šŸ™‚

  56. Sues says:

    @Andi- I don’t currently have the exact buffalo chicken dip recipe, but I will get it and put it up soon!

  57. Germaine says:

    I dont care who plays, all I care about is the YUMMY food!! lol

  58. Jamie says:

    I will be watching with all my friends anxiously waiting to see if their Doritos commercial made it on the super bowl…its made the top 5 in the nation!

  59. LOVE that football bowl… and it’s hard to go wrong with chips and dip. I’m going to a superbowl party at a friend’s house – after last night’s drunken plans, I believe someone committed to bringing a 5lb rum soaked gummy bear – oh yes, this will be documented for the blog šŸ˜‰ Up until yesterday, I’d of course say I want to see the Pats in the superbowl… but today I’m going to go with the Bears. šŸ™‚

  60. Carolyn says:

    I made buffalo chicken dip for the playoffs!

  61. Anita says:

    I’ll be making guacamole and hoping that the Bears are in and win!

  62. i don’t care about the superbowl & don’t even know who could be in it (whoops) but i will be making my husband some dips and such… these chips would be great!

  63. Jo says:

    I’ll be couch’ing it up for the superbowl with some friends and some good treats, definitely some garden of eatin’ tortilla chips! They’re a recent grocery discovery of mine and I can not get enough! Nom nom nom! šŸ™‚

  64. Judith says:

    Who cares about football when you can have guacamole?
    No idea what I will be doing for the game but if I win the chips, I will share them with you guys! šŸ™‚

  65. Laura says:

    I am from Boston so I hope the Pats will make it in and I hoping to invite my family to watch it.

  66. Monique says:

    LOL. love the buffalo chicken dip!
    I got a random box of chips from cape cod for the superbowl… how do these companies find us?? lol. I think im gonna make some guac and crack dip to go with them!
    Happy eating!

  67. Robin says:

    Yum, that gift pack looks amazing. Usually I crave sweets but during this pregnancy it’s been all about the salt. Just looking at that picture of the buffalo chicken dip made me hungry. We don’t have a team in Los Angeles so I will pick the Jets since Sanchez went to USC.

  68. Jenn S. says:

    Well, the Pats are obviously not making it to the Super Bowl, so I don’t really care anymore! I plan on either not watching, or watching a stress-free game with friends, good food (hopefully Garden of Eatin’ chips!) and drinks. šŸ™‚

  69. TB says:

    Eating yummy snacks NOT watching the Pats. šŸ™

  70. Jessica says:

    For me, the superbowl isn’t about the teams playing, but about the food! We’ll be inviting over some friends and family and eating our way through the superbowl.

  71. Ellen Renee says:

    Nobody in my house cares about football – so we aren’t rooting for any team – I do watch the Superbowl though just to see the commercials and the half-time entertainment. Those chips look amazing – I have never noticed them here in southern illinois though :o(

  72. Ashley says:

    Last we planned a huge party – and EVERYONE ended up with the flu! My husband and I feasted on the ridiculous amount of food I had made. We’re going to try it again this year…go Jets!

  73. Robin W. says:

    Not sure where we are going for SuperBowl – but it will be a fun day filled with delicious food!!! I’m thinking about some Citrus Wings that I just saw the recipe on Noble Pig website that I stalk often!! And I am hoping to watch the Chicago Bears kick some hiney!!!!!

  74. Lindsay says:

    I would like to see the Chicago Bears play in the Super Bowl as I am from Illinois. At this time, I think that I will be spending Super Bowl Sunday with my family indulging in Chips and Cheesey Dip! šŸ™‚

  75. aj says:

    Ooh I am hosting a Super Bowl party in my teensy NYC apartment for 12 friends + their boyfriends/husbands/etc. I am making a big bowl of chili and queso for a make-your-own-nachos station. And these chips would be awesome for that! I would love to see the Jets vs. Bears–I am a new New Yorker, but still, I feel like I have to root for the Jets!

  76. Aubreylaine says:

    I’m celebrating and watching with a group from church along with a potluck šŸ™‚
