Progresso Souper You Debut {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

It's winter which means cold and rain in my neck of the woods.  When winter hits, I crave soup because it warms me up from the inside and is a great way to keep those extra pounds off that I would be gaining if I was eating the foods I really wanted to eat like cake and cookies and all those other carbohydrate-laden delicacies that tend to sound so tasty when it's cold out.  One of my favorite brands of soup (if I'm not making it at home from scratch) is Progresso.  I love the fact that they have so many different varieties of soup and they even have a line of lighter soups!  These lighter soups have all the flavor of the regular ones but less fat and calories so I can eat lunch and not feel weighed down by extra fat and salt.  Don't get me wrong, the regular soups are excellent as well, but if I can have that same satisfied feeling with less fat and calories, I jump right on it!

Not only does Progresso make amazing soups, they also sponsor a contest called "Souper You Debut" where they send three lucky fans to New York for a full makeover!  I mean, really, who wouldn't love to go to New York and be pampered for 2 days in New York City?  Here are the details:

Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 20th-22nd. The prize includes round trip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money.

A makeover and spending money?  You know how they say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach?  Well, the way to a woman's heart is through her wallet!  Give me a spending spree and I'll love you forever!  Oh, Progresso, you have won my heart and my stomach!  How do you enter, you ask?  It's easy!  Just do the following:
  • Go to Progresso on Facebook before March 16th to learn more and enter the contest
  • Submit your essay (200 characters or less) telling Progresso why you love their soups that contain 100 calories or less, and why you deserve a chance to win a trip to NYC for a full fashion overhaul
  • In addition, please submit a photo of yourself that visually reinforces the theme of your essay
Once the 10 finalists are announced, you can visit Progresso on Facebook from March 30th through April 13th to vote for your favorite. If you are one of the finalists, make sure you tell all your friends and family so they can go vote for you (P.S. Let me know, too, and I'll spread the word here)!

In the interim or if you don't want to enter, you can visit the Facebook page to download a coupon for $1.00 off four (4) cans of Progresso Soup and to check out makeover videos provided by MyStyle.com and the Style Network. Be sure to also "Follow" Progresso on Twitter to keep up with the latest news from Progresso.

I also have a great prize for you to win from Progresso right here!  One of my lucky readers will win the prize pack shown below which includes a yoga mat, water bottle, wrist bands, exercise bands and a coupon for free soup!
