Hike up your Bloemer's
Gettin' free stuff is just one of the perks attendant with being a foodie blogger of local-slash-world renown. From hundreds of single-serve packets Duke's mayo to large packages of Pilgrim's Pride chicken breasts, I've been on the receiving end of some fine, fine free stuff. I'm not braggin'; I'm just tellin' you. (Wait, maybe I am braggin' just a wee bit.)
My latest gratis acquisition is a bunch of packets of Bloemer's Chile Powder. For the record, Bloemer's chile - or chili, or however you wanna spell it - powder is the the most heaped-with-flavor chile powder I've ever tasted.
About six weeks ago, I enjoyed a chili, er, chile dinner at a good buddy o' mine's house. Oh, it was good. When queried, he told me that Bloemer's Chile Powder is his secret ingredient.
Upon returning home from that incredible supper, I dispatched a your-****-is-the**** e-mail to the folks at Bloemer's -- six weeks later, bang, a box of free chile powder packets. Okay, I may have said something about me having a blog upon which I can either blast or bless various food-folks (!). Nevertheless, a big box o' free stuff was the result.
It's good to be a bloggin' foodie, indeed.
