Wildtree Review and Giveaway (Closed)

My family likes to eat.  I mean, they really like to eat.  When a representative from Wildtree contacted me inquiring about a review of their products, I happily obliged.  I sent over a list of products I was interested in and she sent me a box full of goodies.

In 1996 Leslie Montie founded Wildtree and she has been helping families around the US prepare delicious, nutritious meals in minutes.  She sought the help of her parents and they began experimenting with new ways to prepare food. They began selling their specialty blends at local cooking fairs and they quickly gained a loyal following. Leslie began doing home parties when an excited customer approached her with the idea. Since then Wildtree has grown into a household name across the nation.

Even though Wildtree is widely known, this is the first that I have heard of them and therefore this is my first experience using the product. If you have been reading my blog for a while then you know I’m not an expert cook. In fact, I’m quite a novice cook. If a recipe includes any technique I won’t even attempt it because I’m so unsure of my cooking ability. Having the Wildtree products, I’ve had to step out of my comfort zone and attempt new things. And I actually like it, ha!

As I was looking through the Wildtree booklet, the Garlic Knots recipe really caught my eye. After seeing that I had all the Wildtree products to try this recipe I couldn’t wait to test it out. That is until I saw the directions for the dough mix. I have no experience with dough and to be quite honest, it seems really complex. The water has to be a certain temperature, you have to cover the dough and let it sit, etc. I was really nervous about trying this recipe and put it off for a couple of weeks.

I got all the ingredients, So Quick and Easy Pizza Dough Mix, Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil and Scampi Blend and began my journey at making the Garlic Knots. It probably took me a lot longer than it would take somebody else, but I made sure to read and re-read the directions several times. It was actually so much easier than I thought it would be and the end result was delicious. The whole family loved the Garlic Knots, especially Peyton who ate like 7 of them.

I also received Wildtree Home Fries Seasoning for review.  We have used it several times and each time it was a success with the family.  The directions said to use it on fresh homemade french fries but I used it on frozen french fries.  I laid the frozen french fries evenly on a cookie sheet and sprinkled the Home Fries Seasoning over the them and placed them in the oven.

The french fries turned out really tasty.  The blend is low in calories, fat free, cholesterol free and is also a good source of vitamin C.  I love french fries and the Home Fries Seasoning makes them taste even better.wildtree home fries

I also received Hummus Naturally and Robust Tortilla Soup.  Wildtree carries a wide variety of healthy products for the whole family.  I really liked all the products that I have tried.  Being a frugal mommy, I do have to say that the prices seem a bit high for me.  I have never purchased specialty foods so I’m not sure if these prices are normal or not.  Although I think these prices are good for special occasions, I wouldn’t use them for every day meals here.

Wildtree offers business opportunities as well.  It only takes $99 to get started and you receive $270 in products.  While I have no desire to take on another business venture, I may take advantage of this opportunity just to get the discounted product.  That is over a 60% discount!
