I’m becoming a dab hand with the store cupboard and when Princes approached me about their Fruit for Breakfast campaign. They are keen to highlight the five-a-day properties of their canned fruit and fruit juices. Not being one to turn down free food I decided it was worth taking a closer look at Princes fruit.
My first thoughts when it comes to tinned fruit are mandarin oranges in jelly and Home Ec fruit salads. As my parcel included mandarins I will be honouring them with some green jelly at some point. You can get peaches, pears, grapefruit, mixed fruit and pineapple to name a few all in either grape juice or syrup depending on your preference.
While you could quite happily eat them as they are, with some yoghurt or mixed into cereal but I fancied baking something special so I created two new recipes using the products I was sent. Firstly some Cinnamon and Applesauce Flapjacks for the babies and children which have no added sugar. For the grown ups (not that I can get the children to keep their hands off) some Peach and Raspberry Muffins.
To celebrate their promotion Princes are giving away breakfast goody boxes filled with their fruit products and money off coupons along with some other bits and bobs including an alarm clock, children’s bowls and beakers. Their breakfast box will boost your store cupboard and if your children are anything like mine the bubble wrap will amuse them for hours.
To enter the giveaway all you need to do is leave a comment below if you can’t think of anything to say why not tell me what you eat for breakfast (I eat toast thickly spread with marmite). What ever you do please leave your email address in the email field (it won’t be published) so I know how to get in touch with you if you win. Technical: It is open to UK entrants only (or at least the prize can only be sent to UK postal addresses). The giveaway will remain open until 9am Friday 28th October 2011 after which a winner will be chosen at random and notified by email. Your details will not be shared with anyone unless you win then I will need to pass your address along for your book to be sent. Prize is on Princes Breakfast Box, contents may vary but will include Princes tinned fruit, fruit juices and money off coupons. There is no cash alternative for this prize. Giveaway closed, thank you to all who entered xoxo
It is not open to Housewife Confidential family members.
