New SeaPak Shrimp Scampi Family Size Package

National Shrimp Day was on May 10th last week and when I think of that day, I think about SeaPak Shrimp. SeaPak Shrimp and Seafood Co., America’s No. 1-selling retail frozen shrimp brand within the specialty seafood category, is taking the initiative to help consumers get more value out of their shopping trips when searching for quality home meals. SeaPak recently launched an all-new Family Size package for their most popular items. These new larger packages will decrease the price per unit for families, thus stretching their dollars. SeaPak continues to offer nutritious meals for families, and now it can also help them save. Shrimp Scampi is my all time favorite and the family size is a great value. SeaPak Shrimp Scampi is also American’s the #1 best selling Shrimp Scampi! I love the succulent shrimps with the buttery and seasoned sauce. It’s simply delicious and also quick to cook and heat up and saves you precious time in the kitchen. So buy yours today for the family and save money and time.

SeaPak Shrimp and Seafood Co., owned by Rich Products Corporation, has been using coastal secrets and recipes to make great-tasting shrimp and seafood for more than 60 years. From mouthwatering Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp and Popcorn Shrimp to delicious Salmon Burgers and Shrimp Scampi, SeaPak brings the “Taste of the Coast” to tables across the country. SeaPak produces America’s No. 1-selling retail frozen shrimp brand within the specialty seafood category. It is highly regarded within the seafood industry.

Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2011

I was selected to receive the Influenster Holiday VoxBox and I’m so excited and can’t wait to try the fun products that were included.  Yay!  I tried some of the products already.  The contents of the Influenster Holiday VoxBox are as follows:

ImPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails is the revolutionary way to apply nail polish featuring advanced technology.  You will get a salon-perfect manicure in seconds.  Simply peel off, press on, and you’re done (no drying time!).  ImPRESS comes in 36 colors and paterns, including trendy brights, fun prints, classic darks and animal prints.  The D090 Space Cadet pattern looks like a shattered/cracked nail polish design in shiny black and white and I can’t wait to try.

Softsoap Coconut Scrub Bar Soap is what you need to renew your skin as it is enriched with crushed coconut extract and gently exfoliates to renew your skin’s surface while helping retain natural moisture for soft, supple skin.  Softsoap also comes in two other exotic fragrances:  Juice Pomegranate & Mango Infusions and Sweet Honeysuckle & Orange Peel.  Coconut is my favorite fragrance and I can’t wait to try as it smells so good.

I love Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks as they are jam packed with the most delicious natural ingredients and are bursting with lusicious juicy fragrances.  They have different types of moisturizing and purifying masques.  Let’s just saying it’s like you are feeding and treating your facial skin as it leaves your face so hydrated and refreshed.  I tried their other face masks but I haven’t tried the Strawberry Souffle yet.  It sounds yummy and I can’t wait to try it. 

Straight from the city that never sleeps, New York Color’s Liquid Lipshine is uptown style at a down-to-earth price.  With pure pigments that create a 3-D gloss effect and vitamin E that provides shine and moisture, this product is perfect to keep lips looking and feeling fabulous this season.  It comes in 10 shades from neutral nude, to berries and fuchsias.  The 582 Nude York City is the perfect neutral nude to give you that flawless natural look and I can’t wait to try it. 

I’m sure you know Mentos, but did you know that they have sugarfree gum?  Mentos Pure Fresh Sugarfree Gum is perfect before that holiday party, date or meeting.  Just pop Mentos Pure Fresh Gum for a quick refresh!  The crunchy outer shell conceals a green tea extract core that provides an immediate burst of coolness for long-lasting fresh breath.  Its unique container keeps gum protected in your purse!  I of course tried it and it tastes just like the regular Mentos and it’s just as refreshing. 

Larabar is made from only two to nine ingredients and each Larabar is a delcious and healthy blend of just fruits, nuts and spices.  It’s pure and simple, just as nature intended.  Larabar comes in 19 delicious flavors.  I devoured my Cherry Pie Larabar and I just love it.  It’s so natural and yummy.

I tried a sample of Garden Botanika Heart Fragrance and the light, sheer breeze of fragrance refreshes you throughout the day.  It was my bonus product included in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox.  Heart fragrance blends the sheer scent of florals with notes of cedar, citrus and a hint of musk.  Garden Botanika Heart Fragrance is Garden Botanika’s best selling fragrance!  I love!  Thank you for selecting me Influenster!

SeaPak Poptoberfest Giveaway and Review

My apologies for the delay to post this but I was sick. For the first time, SeaPak has launched the Poptoberfest festival, a family program that is currently being held during the month of October.  SeaPak is celebrating family and the time they are able to spend together.  Not only does SeaPak want families to enjoy delicious meals together, but they also want to encourage families to take a vacation from the everyday routine.

During Poptoberfest, friends and fans of SeaPak will be able to engage on Facebook where there will be weekly trivia, polls, and fun questions that celebrate family time together.  There were also different prizes and special coupon offers given away each week!  This is the last week!

To celebrate Poptoberfest, I was given a package of SeaPak Popcorn Fish and Popcorn Shrimp to try and my favorite is the Popcorn Shrimp but I like both about the same.  The Popcorn Fish are delicious with chips or even on their own and the Popcorn Shrimp are succulent and tasty just like the ones at restaurants!  SeaPak Popcorn Fish and Popcorn Shrimp changes the everyday routine to family fun during dinner and kids love them!  I love the different dinners/recipes you can prepare with them.  The following is my easy recipe:

Guacamole Popcorn Shrimp Tacos:

2 (12 oz) packages of SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp

8-10 flour tortillas, heated according to package directions

14 oz bag or head of iceberg lettuce

8 oz white cheddar cheese, shredded

8 oz sour cream

Guacamole (if desired):

2 avocados

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 ripe tomato, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Peel and mash avocados in a medium serving bowl.  Stir in onion, garlic, tomato, lime juice, salt and pepper.  Season with remaining lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.  Chill for half an hour to blend flavors

BAKE shrimp according to package directions.

COMBINE guacamole ingredients.

SPREAD a tablespoon of guacamole and sour cream over each warm tortilla with lettuce, cheese, and top with cooked shrimp.

Please visit SeaPak’s Facebook page to participate in Poptoberfest. Monday, October 31, 2011 is the last day so hurry!  SeaPak graciously decided to give one of my lucky readers a SeaPak Kitchen Pack, including: a SeaPak reusable grocery bag packed with a spatula, a cooking conversion magnet, a flexible cutting board, and a $3 off coupon good through 12/2011.  How cool is that?  All you have to do is the following:
