Wildtree Review and Giveaway

Have you ever heard of Wildtree? I hadn’t heard about them until just last month and am so glad I finally found this company. They have actually been around for 16 year and got started in Michigan and has grown tremendously.

There are many great things about Wildtree, including: they make meal time quick and easy and the fact that they are so natural and healthy because they don’t add all the junk.  Every Wildtree product is natural: containing no additives, preservatives, MSG, or food dyes.  They seek to provide the very best products as well as quality service to their  customers.  It really is possible to provide our families with  food that is nutritious, delicious, and simple to prepare!

There are tons and tons of video’s on Youtube showing you just how easy it is to make these meals and video’s about the company itself and opportunities to work with them. This video below was taken in November of last year at the Houston 2011 Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show.  I thought I would share it real quick because it shows a lot of their products.

This video was provided by Wildtree from MetroCooking on Vimeo.

I received a triple score with Wildtree. I originally heard about them from a friends blog review and giveaway that I entered and WON! Right after I entered (before I knew I would win) I contacted them and heard back and was offered a review/giveaway of my own. Then I got the word that I won so I received my winnings and my review…eek! On a sadder note, however, my teenager wanted to help prepare our meal one night and thought she’d make the chocolate mousse for us but didn’t use heavy whipping cream and instead just milk. I tried to save it but I couldn’t. Talk about devastated dumping what could’ve been the most delicious chocolate mousse down the  drain. 🙁 It still makes me sad. I LOVE CHOCOLATE.  The rep I have worked with told me a friend of hers makes the mouse and freezes it then puts some between two graham crackers and back in the fridge for homemade ice cream sandwiches. Well the good news, the Alfredo turned out magnificent!  Just ask anyone that knows me and they will tell you that I am a pasta freak and more times than not when we eat out I order Alfredo or Chicken Alfredo. I just love my pasta and Alfredo is my all time favorite.  Wildtree did not disappoint…it was great!

It was so simple to make too. I decided to go with just an Alfredo without chicken or broccoli so I could highlight the Alfredo all by itself though I lOVE a good broccoli or chicken or both Alfredo. 🙂 Anyhow, I got the water boiling in a large pot and added my noodles. While those started cooking in another pan I melted 5T of butter and added 1/2 cup of milk (or you could add half and  half) When totally melted you simply add the package of Alfredo mix and whisk or stir briskly until it’s all combined….taa daa!  I heated it up for a few minutes and drained the noodles. I put the noodles on the plates covered it with Alfredo sauce and added a little Parmesan cheese. Then I cut a few slices off a block of cheese and gave myself olives and everyone else pickles. I love my olives too but everyone else prefers pickles. Supper is served in that short time. You could add bread or garlic bread to the side as well. But we had ourselves a complete supper in just minutes.

If you want to give them a try you can enter for that chance today.  My rep is offering one lucky winner their choice of either the Alfredo or the Chocolate Mouse.

This giveaway is for US residents 18+ and ENDS May 15th.

    This is one of the few sites that I have found that talk about Wildtree products. I feel rather immersed in them right now but do not actually sell them. The oils are great and I’d recommend them for sure. The onion and blueberry preserves are wonderful, overpriced, yet probably worth it. You really need to have a plan in place on how you’d use the food products offered by Wildtree. Know that Wildtree is herbs, oils, and basically products that enhance and supplement food flavor. If you are a “package” food kind of eater, then using Wildtree products can replace your use of “unhealthy” preservatives found in processed foods. If you are not a “powdered fast food prep” kind of person, then the Wildtree products might have you scratching your head a bit. Wildtree has a large catalog full of herb packs, rubs, and sauce mixes. At a given tasting party, you only try a fraction of the catalog. I suppose the hope is that you buy in on the sales pitch and try it all. They also want you to keep on ordering. My question and concern about the products is the shelf life. I know that I have spices and packets that get lost in the back of cabinet and I’m pretty sure after 18 months, most of the dry products may not be good any longer. Yes, Wildtree lacks preservatives and after 18 months in my cabinet the alfredo mix was yellowed, and when prepared, tasted stale. So, if you buy Wildtree, use it sooner than later. Don’t save it as that is not the point of it. Also, watch the heartburn. If you don’t usually cook with spices and are prone to heartburn, you might do best to ease into this product.
