Benissimo Oils GiveAway!

June 6th, 2014 by Stephanie O'Dea

 This contest is now over. A Winner has been randomly selected and notified via email. Thank you for playing along!! -steph

HAPPY FRIDAY!!  I have a great giveaway for you today — an absolutely lovely care package from Benissimo Oil by Hongar Farms.


These olive oils and vinegars aren’t something you’ve had before — the levels of flavors remind me of a wonderful Italian restaurant that I used to go to as a teenager. I’d order a house salad for about $7 and then sit and eat basket after basket of french bread and their house olive oil with fresh herbs and spices.

I don’t do that anymore. One, restaurant french bread isn’t gluten free, and two, it just seems sneaky to sit and fill up on “free ” stuff at a restaurant.

Anyways. You will love these olive oils. I was able to try the Balsamic Garlic, Roasted Garlic, and Pepper Garlic. I dipped Against the Grain baguettes into a small bowl of the oils and was just blown away.

Unlike other gourmet olive oils, the flavor is infused throughout the whole bottle — there really isn’t a need to “shake up the good stuff” from the bottom of the jar — it’s flavored perfectly throughout.

These bottles would also make a fabulous hostess gift. The presentation is gorgeous and if you wanted to, you could pair a bottle of the oil with a dish towel or a bottle of wine.



Our friends at Benissimo and Hongar Farms have graciously gifted a prize package for 1 lucky winner.

A winner will be randomly selected (I’ve gotten questions about how I select a winner. The computer program selects the winner, not me! 😉  )  to receive this gift pack shipped directly from Hongar Farms.


You can garner more entries by LIKING Benissimo on Facebook (and then leave me another comment so I know)

or by FOLLOWING them on twitter (and then leave me another comment so I know).

and yet another entry by FOLLOWING along on Pinterest! (and then leave me another comment so I know).

You have 4 chances to win in all! #yay!


This contest will end next Friday, (the 13th (insert scary music…) ) at 5pm Pacific.


best of luck to all, and thank you for playing along!! steph
