Finding Fun with McCain Potatoes + Facebook Contest

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for McCain Foods. I received a sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.

Kids can be really tough food critics! Some nights I go all out, but usually I am just trying to fix a meal that my whole family will eat without complaint. My son is becoming more adventurous with his eating, but my daughter has hit the stage where every bite has to be encouraged. I know my kids belong to me because one thing they are always up for is a potato.

Yes, french fries, tots, sweet potato fries, etc. all make my family smile, but when I tried the McCain Smiles from my local Fred Meyers and Walmart, it was pure dinner magic. My kids were amazed that these smiling faces were made out of tasty mashed potatoes and perfect for dipping. Just like fries, I simply baked them in the oven till golden brown.

My kids wasted no time in digging in. We paired these with hamburgers and cantaloupe for a fast and delicious meal.

They are soft and delicious inside and crisp on the outside. All of us enjoyed this unique take on a potato side dish. Even better, they are all natural.
