Country Crock and Mrs. Dash Want to Help You Get Healthy in the Kitchen!

1:32 PM


I remember when I was pregnant with my 2nd son. The doctor told me to cut out salt. I shopped and shopped, and came home with a bag full of overpriced and underflavored "substitutes." Needless to say, I was very disappointed with what I found, and my food tasted blech.

It is now almost 5 years later, and BOY have things changed! Like the new varieties of Mrs. Dash seasonings that I got to test out recently. These salt-free seasonings are nothing like I remember about Mrs. Dash. They are fun, yummy, and taste nothing like "salt-free." My favorite of the line is the Fiesta Lime. It is perfect for cooking chicken or beef with, as you can use it in tacos, enchiladas, or fajitas! *Super bold flavor, but not too spicy!* (They also have a super tangy Caribbean Citrus Seasoning Blend with allspice, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon. It's a perfect grilling condiment!)

Cutting out salt is a great way to make meals healthier, but you can also "cheat" a bit by adding in a bit more Vitamin D! Kids (and parents) can sneak 40% more of this vital nutrient into their diets by trying products like Country Crock Calcium plus Vitamin D (which contains additional calcium... BTW, too!)


We were really excited to try both the Mrs. Dash and the Country Crock at our home. No added work involved, just a dash and a pat -- and we were on our way to healthier eating!

  1. I am very excited about both products! My boyfriend has high blood pressure so the Mrs. Dash would be great, especially since he likes spicy foods. The Country Crock would be great because i can always use the Vitamin D. I was taking supplements over the winter but stopped since summer is coming. The little extra would probably be good.

  2. I'd love to try the Mrs. Dash products. I'm a bit skeptical, having tried salt substitutes at my mom's house years ago, but I'm willing to give it another shot.

  3. Although I would probably use the Country Crock more often than the Mrs. Dash, I am most looking forward to trying the Mrs. Dash. I have been in a rut and have been seasoning all of our meat dishes with garlic, pepper, and MSG, so Mrs. Dash would give my poor family something new to try. I would try the Fiesta Lime on chicken first, and then make a Mexican meal out of it.

  5. One Month ago, My family was initially reluctant to make the change from stick butter to Country Crock Calcium plus Vitamin D. We needed to incorporate changes in our diets so that everyone would benefit!we really love the great taste and knowing that its good for us, too. I've used Mrs. Dash in the past, and would be most excited to use it consistently. I've seen it the grocery stores, and was impressed that Mrs. Dash has several different seasoning blends!Thanks for the review & giveaway!

  9. We don't add salt to our foods (everyone outside of my immediate family HATES my cooking!) so I'm more excited about the Country Crock than the Mrs. Dash. Everybody needs more calcium in their diet! If I win I'll give the Mrs. Dash to my sister because they eat it quite often. Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Hi, I think both the Mrs. Dash Seasonings and the Country Crock with Calcium and innovative products. My mom used the original Mrs. Dash when I was growing up because of the health benefits. I would love to be entered in the Country Crock with Calcium giveaway because all ages can usually benefit from Calcium. We use margarine on
    corn on the cob, butter bread, baked potatoes, etc. Many thanks, Cindi

  20. I'm most excited about the Mrs. Dash seasonings. I'll admit that we use way too much salt and I think having some Mrs. Dash around will help us add flavor to our meals without adding the salt.

    I'd really like to try the Mrs Dash products!! My hubby uses them to season his chicken and fish, but he'll only use 1 flavor!
    These flavors seem interesting enough that he may change it up a bit!!

  27. Oooh, Mrs. Dash is my best buddy! These flavors sound fantastic! We eat a ton of veggies (mainly steamed) and I love adding different flavors to make them unique!

  28. I'm most excited about the Country Crock with Vitamin D because my husband puts too much butter on everything and this would be much healthier. However, our food is all a little bland and some Mrs. Dash sounds like it would help that out, too!

    Thanks!
