Earth Balance Giveaway

It's no secret that I love Earth Balance. After trying the few non dairy brands of margarine available in my area, I quickly settled on it as my first choice both for flavor and for the resulting quality of my baked goods.
I have some good news for those allergic to both milk and soy. Earth Balance is introducing a new soy free spread, and I received an offer to try it for free. (Thanks Sylvia!) Not only did I promptly say yes, I asked for some additional coupons to share.
I am giving away two sets of two coupons, each good for one free package of any Earth Balance spread or sticks. To enter the drawing, leave a comment describing any other kind new product you would like to see or what change you would like to make to an item already on the grocery store shelves. If you'd like a second chance, mention the drawing on your own blog and link back to this post, then leave a second comment on the thread, letting me know you've done so.
Since I'm going by twos, I'll use Random.org to pick two winners two weeks from now. (If one person manages to win both, I'll redraw the second one.) The deadline to leave a comment is midnight EST on Saturday, May 16th. Unfortunately, I'm limiting the contest to residents of the United States unless you are in Canada and you are able to purchase Earth Balance where you live. Please make sure you leave an email address or link to your blog where I can contact you!
Update: I've found out officially that the soy free Earth Balance has not yet been introduced in Canada, although plans are in the works. As the commentators already let me know, other types of EB are available there. So, Canadians are very welcome!

Ooh! That's exciting. I would like to see Earth Balance sticks--easier for measuring.

I'd like to see more nut-free, dairy-free granola bars on the grocery shelves, but that's highly wishful thinking, as so many manufacturers have nut-based lines. (Yes, I do have a stash of NoNuttin bars but it would be nice to have a wider range of flavours.)

And I'm in Canada, and can get Earth Balance in a bunch of stores around here. Looking forward to trying the soy-free line!

EB is in my area, and I am very excited about this new product!

While I can't think of a particular new product, I would love to see more products that are soy-free and dairy-free AND all-natural. Aside from the "raw" bars like Clif Nectar and Larabar, it is hard to find virtous snacks that are all-natural, soy-free, and don't cost and arm and a leg! Spending $5 on a snack just isn't in budget.

I love Earth Balance!
One thing I wish were more available is dairy free & soy free yogurt. I know rice dream makes rice yogurt, it's just almost impossible to find! So in general maybe my wish would be for normal stores to start caring more about allergic families and carrying more products that are offered out there.

gfbentomom said...

That's great news! Now I won't have to buy different products for different family members! I hope it is successful and that they will offer it in larger tubs because we go through it so fast! In my dreams I would love to see gluten-free, dairy-free very lowcarb products, there are a few wraps and breads and crackers out there but they all utilize gluten-containing ingredients. Until then I'll be in my kitchen baking my own with the almond flour and Earthbalance!

This is a great discovery.
I would love to try this new dairy and egg free earth's balance!
Thanks.

Chef Mom said...

Nicole, So Delicious has coconut milk yogurt which is dairy-free and soy-free.

I would like to see more probiotics and more chocolate that is dairy-free and soy-free.

Linds said...

Great! I'd love to see more gluten free, dairy free products not contain nuts or produced in a factory with nuts. It's so discouraging when it seems safe only to turn it over and see the warning. Dried fruit, cereal and cookies would be on the top of the list.

LV said...

Always interested in more organic gluten-free products.

Liz said...

I'd love to see dairy free white chocolate. Oh how I crave it!

Liz said...

I don't have a blog, but I twittered. Hope that counts!

I would love to see more snack items that are dairy, egg, and nut free that are not super expensive.

I would like to see vegan frozen calzones in the grocery stores!!

Roseann said...

This is great! It will help our family so much!

divrchk said...

I'd love to see more dairy free breads in the grocery store. I love Earth Balance!

The Williams said...

YAY! You don't know how happy this makes me! My 3 year old is allergic to dairy and soy...so this will help out so much in baking. :)
I would love to see more brownie mixes that are dairy, soy and egg free.

Lemon said...

Nice! I would love to see even more soy and dairy free choices, we have allergies to both in our house.

Kelleen said...

I use canoleo from Trader Joe's but have always wanted to try EB...so exciting, thank you!

Lemon said...

sorry...forgot to put email bvlemon@hotmail.com ;)

Marketing Mama said...

I was out shopping for this today and they were out at the only store in town that carries it. UGH. Would love, love a free coupon - as this would be the ONLY spread we could use in our family, as my daughter is allergic to soy and I'm breastfeeding and following the same diet.

marketingmama@q.com

Thank you!

Grace said...

Sounds good. I don't want to eat too much soy.

ac said...

My family doesn't like Earth Balance! The consistency is too choppy for margarine and the flavor is blah! We used to buy Canoleo 100% Canola oil margarine from Trader Joe's but they stopped carrying it. That's when we tried Earth Balance. Is there another creamy, spreadable margarine that you can recommend?

erisgrrrl said...

The big thing I'd like to see is more of the foods marketed to kids WITHOUT artificial colors. It's just so unnecessary! Cereal is the big one - Life cereal is already brown.... why does it need to be MORE BROWN!?!?

And for the record our local coop makes vegan peanut butter crispie treats with Earth Balance and they are among the yummiest things I've ever put in my mouth! :D

Allergy Mom said...

ac, sorry for the late reply. There are members of my local food allergy group that swear by Fleischmann's Light Margarine, but I have never tried it. So I can't swear either to the taste or the ingredient label.
