Pillsbury Savorings Review and Giveaway

Oh man, I had an adventure trying to prepare this one.

Took my sister to the store with me.  Walked all over the place looking for said Pillsbury Savorings.

She chased me around while brandishing random items of produce.

Had to decide between Mozarella and Pepperoni, Cheese and Spinach, and Buffalo Chicken.

Decided that I couldn't decide and got Cheese and Spinach AND Buffalo Chicken. 

Brought the frozen snacks home.

While preparing the first batch, somehow managed to burn the living daylights out of both the snack and my fingers.  (Only I can simultaneously ruin a dish and injure myself). 

Finally got a chance to test them out on Shaun, my sister and myself.


We thought they were all rather tasty.  They're little puff pastries filled with either buffalo chicken, spinach and cheese, or, the one we didn't try, the pepperoni and mozzarella. 

Hands down, our favorite was the buffalo chicken.  According to Shaun, they tasted like buffalo chicken.  That's what you get when you ask the guy who tends to be light on the details.

My sister and I agreed that they were a good level of spice while maintaining a good flavor. 

We all liked the spinach and cheese as well, though they weren't the favorites.

Shaun actually made a perfect comment when comparing the two, "The buffalo ones are good for a pre-dinner snack...  the spinach ones taste like something I'd eat for breakfast... like a mini quiche!"

There you have it.  Tasty, and really a nice thing to have on hand for those times when you're supposed to bring an appetizer somewhere and you know you can't cook.  Go ahead, claim you made them... we won't tell.

Anyway, I have a great prize pack to offer to one lucky reader!  A coupon for a free box of Pillsbury Savorings and some pretty wine accessories (and if you don't drink wine, use it for your sparkling cider :)

 Comment on this post with your favorite appetizer by 11:59 pm on Wednesday, October 29th and I'll use the handy dandy random number generator to pick a winner and contact you sometime on Thursday.  One comment per person, please.  But, if you post about this giveaway on your blog, comment again with a link to your blog and I'll add another entry for you to win.

Please be sure to leave your email address either in the comment or have it accessible so that I can contact you if you win.  Good luck!


  1. I love buffalo chicken wing dip! MMM mmm!

  2. Chips and Hot Sauce and Guacamole has to be my favorite. (at least right now) But I have to say if I could sit down and eat a meal of all different appetizers, I would be in heaven.

  3. I love shrimp appatizers even though I've only had one once but it was good. I don't usually get appetizers. :)

  4. I'm a big fan of brie wrapped in Pillsbury crescent rolls with raspberry jam in the middle...sounds weird but super tasty! And I'm all about trying the buffalo chicken "savorings" I love the flavor of buffalo sauce but CANNOT handle bones and wings so it sounds perfect!

  5. Crab Dip! The perfect Maryland appetizer!

  6. Mini quiches. Hands down.

    But potstickers would be a close second!

    I can't handle bones and wings either, Corinne! Kaleb has to cut chicken off the bone for me. I feel silly, but I just can't do it!

  7. I have no favorites. I could eat appetizers all day, for every meal and every snack in between.

    Anything TexMex, crab dip, anything with wing sauce... basically anything bite-size is the WAY to go!

  8. HI
    Pick Me Pick Me! I have a baby shower I'm throwing and it would be perfect to bring them. They sound great!

  9. I'm a fan of dips...spinach artichoke...queso...buffalo chicken...corn dip...the list goes on and on...

  10. Give me a free appetizer and I'll eat anything :-) If I have to pay myself then crab dip is my all time #1. (I've had to fight CRAZED women over the Jilly's crab dip many times :-))

    ~Dana (I think you know my e-mail!)

  11. Dana and I really want to win (we like free food) so I'm posting as well. Definitely mozzarella sticks. As Joey (from Friends) would say, "My favorite foods... fried stuff with cheese".

    ~Joe (use Dana's e-mail if I win!)

  12. Joe, Dana and I really want to win. My favorite appetizer is leftover meat... any meat, from any animal, or anything that even remotely smells like meat!

    ~Scully (Use Dana's e-mail. Since I don't have opposable thumbs I've been having a hard time typing and setting up an e-mail account.)

  13. I love Dana & Joe :) and I also love your spinach artichoke dip, even though I'm not a huge fan of artichokes in general, I really like the way you make it :) Jilly's crab dip is definitely in my top 3, which we'll round out with sweedish meatballs.

  14. I agree with Lauren I love your spinach artichoke dip and my other favorite is The spicy cheese ball that Julie makes. It is great! I love appetizers!!
