Giveaway from Tate's Bake Shop! Who wants some cookies and a new cookbook?


I recently had the fun opportunity to try several package of Tate's Bake Shop Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies that Tates was so generous to send on to me. As I pulled the packages of cookies out of the box when it arrived my first step was to check out the ingredients. I know Tate's had great basic ingredients last time I had the chance to try some of their cookies and I was more than pleased to see that this bake shop has stuck with it and provided another cookie that had all ingredients that I recognize and more importantly can actually pronounce! 

Actually these cookies are made with the exact same ingredients you make a homemade batch of cookies with. This brought a smile to my face and as I took my first bite of the Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie I could tell right away that the simple ingredients showed through in the flavor of the cookies. They honestly taste just like homemade ones, but without all the mess! Not only do they taste homemade, but they also look it. We've all seen the generic style, store bought chocolate chip cookie that no matter how many you pull out of the package they each look exactly the same (just not natural in my personal opinion). Well not here! Each cookie has a little different shape and look, but all have the same great taste and a crunch meant to go with a big glass of milk or better yet to accompany a bowl of homemade vanilla bean ice cream! 
In case my word isn't good enough, how about the fact that this Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie won GOLD in the Cookie category in the 2011 sofi™ Awards, presented at the Fancy Food Show (known as the Oscars® of the specialty food industry) in Washington, DC.

 
 

What You'll Win

For one lucky reader Tate's Bake Shop would like to share their cookies with you. You'll receive three packages of the Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies, along with a signed copy of Kathleen King's cookbook, The Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook
 


Enjoy a Discount

Now, it doesn't seem quite fair that only one person gets to enjoy the fun, so along with the giveaway everyone can take advantage of 15% off your total order at Tate's e-bakery by using the coupon code, COOKIE. This code is good until the end of October (2011).



Gluten Free Options!

If you are thinking that wow, wish I could do this, but I can't have gluten. I'm with ya, because we've had to cut all wheat and likely next all gluten out of our son's diet as we figure out what is causing him to show signs of a food allergy. When I was perusing Tate's Bake Shop website I noticed they have an array of gluten free cookies. Check it out and let me know what your think! 



How to Enter

For the giveaway we are going to keep it simple.

This contest will close Sunday, November 6th at midnight and I will announce the winner Monday, November 7th on this blog and also on twitter. 
Winner will be chosen using Random.org. This giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.

I look forward to seeing who the winner is. Good luck everyone!

  5. I guess I'm the odd man out, since I'm more interested in the cookbook than the cookies? lol. I'm just getting into the kitchen - I was never really taught how to cook - and while I'm ok at baking cakes, cookies have always been difficult for me. Maybe I just need more of a push? lol. Good luck everyone. :)
