Orchard’s Finest Giveaway

by on November 29, 2011 · 193 comments

As a follow-up to the recipe for Pick Your Flavor Cheesecake Bars, here’s a giveaway designed to liven up your holiday baking.   The nice people at Smucker’s have offered gift packs of Orchard’s Finest to three Cookie Madness readers.

Orchard's Finest Giveaway

I’d never heard of Orchard’s Finest until I visited Smucker’s headquarters, but I really enjoyed our little tasting session which was done in the lab where they test things like viscosity, sweetness and chunkiness of preserves. While the machinery used for the testing was pretty high tech, the ingredients in Orchard’s Finest were simple and the preserves tasted like something I might make at home if I knew how to make preserves. Out of all the flavors, my favorite was the orange marmalade, but I also liked the Triple Berry and the Cherry.

Now it’s your turn for a taste test. For a chance at receiving a free sample pack of Orchard’s Finest Preserves, post a comment telling me whether you prefer jam, jelly or preserves and what your favorite flavor is. The cut-off will be this Friday at noon and I will announce the winner on this very same post Saturday morning. As usual, this one’s limited to USA residents.

UPDATED:  Giveaway winner are Jessie, Giovanna and….

Orange marmalade – a miracle on toast and as an ingredient!

Rebecca November 30, 2011 at 1:39 pm

Raspberry jam. Soo delicious. Also, homemade peach jam. Or any homemade jam really.

Jacqui November 30, 2011 at 1:47 pm

I like them all – jelly, jam or preserves!! My favorite of all is usually strawberry though :-)

pat November 30, 2011 at 1:49 pm

I have to admit I do not know the difference between Jelly, jam and preserves. But I will eat any kind of berry on my toast!

I like blueberry and strawberry preserves.

Karin Muserallo November 30, 2011 at 2:12 pm

I love preserves of any kind. Two of my personal favorites are fig and pear preserves. We Southern girls have these fruits in almost in every back yard! Preserves seem to be the truest essence of fruit flavor in a jar! I love the idea that Smuckers has actually got some regional fruit! My sentimental favorite is strawberry preserves. My grandmother and mother both made them! <3

Karen CA November 30, 2011 at 2:21 pm

I like all of them and my favorite is a berry of some kind, blackberry, raspberry, but that cherry sounds pretty good, love them, even peach is good. Thanks for the opportunity to sample these.

Kathy November 30, 2011 at 2:23 pm
