Giveaway: Hodgson Mill Gift Card

UPDATE: Unfortunately, I can not recommend purchasing products from Hodgson Mill’s website. The winner of my  gift card emailed to let me know that everything on the site was costing way more to ship than the actual product (she would have paid over $30 in shipping to use a $25 gift card). After looking around myself, I realized the same thing (some shipping was upwards of $80 for a few bags of flour). The people at HM did not offer to waive or discount the shipping, and I would not have done the giveaway had I known the gift card couldn’t even be used.

Recently, the people at Hodgson Mill reached out to me to see if I would be interested in creating an original recipe for the holidays, but making it healthy using whole wheat flour. You know that I love to use whole wheat flour to make things healthier, so I said yes!

I have used HM products in the past, and have always been happy with their products. I was really excited to find out they have an organic line, which I was not previously aware of. I can’t wait to try it out!

I haven’t decided on my recipe for the contest yet, but I will be posting it when I do (in the meantime, if you have any suggestions for things you’d like to see me make, let me know!).

In addition to sending me some flour to enter the contest, Hodgson Mill is also providing a $25 gift card to one of my readers, to use at their online store.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment telling me what you’d like to buy from the HM store.

The deadline to enter this giveaway is Friday, November 25 at midnight CST. The winner will be announced early next week.

Disclaimer: Hodgson Mill is providing the gift card to a reader, but they did not compensate me for this post. They did send me flour to create an original recipe, which will be posted soon. The ideas expressed in this post are my own.
