WIN-It-Wednesday: Michael Season’s Snacks

Sometimes I crave a salty snack that is reminiscent of the days before I went gluten free. The type of snack that reminds me of when I was a kid, and I would sit around with my sisters and share a big bag of snacks until all that was left was a bunch of crumbs.

That is why I was excited when Michael Season’s sent me a big box full of snacks that were not only gluten-free, but also a healthier version of the treats from yesteryear.

Michael Season’s has developed what I call “The Cheese Curl for the Big Girl”… a delicious gluten-free cheese curl with at least 50% less fat than the leading brand-name. They have even developed “adult” flavors for their cheese curls, including Hot Chili Pepper Curls and Jalapeno Puffs, along with the traditional childhood favorites, Cheddar Cheese Curls or Puffs. There are also no artificial colors in any of the Michael Season’s products so you can eats these curls and puffs san the construction-zone cone orange fingers. Definitely a plus.

Other favorite Michael Season’s products are the Thin Potato Crisps, which are also casein-free, as well as gluten-free. Sporting 70% less fat than regular potato chips, these chips add just the perfect crunch to any lunch. Guilt-free.

Michael Season’s products are all natural, and contain no preservatives, artificial flavors or MSG.   They use the highest quality ingredients and seasonings; and has gluten-free testing done on their products. Feel good snacking at its best!

All these reasons are why I am so excited that Michael Season’s is this week’s WIN-It-Wednesday sponsor. Two (Yes, 2!) LUCKY BeFreeForMe members will win a Michael Season’s reusable shopping bag packed with the Michael Season’s products of your choice.

  6. Jennifer Says:

    I remember Sunday afternoons as great days from my childhood. After church my family would go out to lunch then spend the afternoon together.

  7. Beth Says:

    I have wonderful memories of all of us (myself and my 6 siblings ages 3-17, and our parents) stuffed into a station wagon that we called the ‘Blue Bomber’ with all our luggage on a road trip from Boston to Orlando. I learned what a ‘wet willy’ was on that trip 🙂 That’s when you stick your finger in your mouth and then in someone’s ear. Gross now but so funny as a kid!

  8. Martha Taylor Says:

    One year we went camping at a beach in Port Aransas in TX with several families. We ate what the grown ups caught that day at the pier. It was awesome!

  9. Lisa Says:

    My childhood memories include hours and hours with my horses and wonderful fishing with my dad!

  10. Pamela Stickney Says:

    My favorite memory is going to the Potato Blossom Festival every year. I loved smelling and tasting the different foods that the vendors made. I miss that since I am now gluten free.

  11. Eliza Says:

    My favorite childhood memory is apple-picking in New England – jeans and wool sweaters, climbing trees with my brother, catching some of the last warm days of autumn, leaves changing, and eating so many apples you think you’ll burst! Unfortunately in addition to gluten, I’m also allergic to apples now too 🙁

  12. Kathy Bunn Says:

    I remember going camping with my family and getting up early to go fishing with my dad.

  13. Marilyn Gollan Says:

    I remember feeling awe and wonder in the early morning as I ran in the field overgrown with morning glory flowers.

  14. Theresa Watson Says:

    My favorite summertime memories are sitting on the steps outside my house eating Italian ices and BBQ potato chips.

  15. Marie Stephens Says:

    My favorite memorie is making fried apple pies out of apples that had been dried outside on big sheets of tin in the yard with my great grandmother. I have not had a good pie since she passed away.

  16. Paula Says:

    I remember pretending to be asleep at the end of a long road trip, knowing that my dad would carry me in the house, and gently put me to bed, placing a gentle kiss on my forehead. I felt so loved, cherished, and protected.

  17. Marina Says:

    My grandmother taking me to the beach.

  18. Nancy Larsen Says:

    Every morning I would run across the back lawn to my Grandma’s house to get a slice of homemade bread with fresh butter. Then we would go out to the garden and pick vegatables. My children grew up the same way with me. I still make fresh bread (GF) and have two large gardens. My grandchildren help me to harvest what they call the goodies!

  19. Rhonda Says:

    My favorite childhood memory is going to my grandmother’s and eating homemade apple pie or hot chocolate rolls out of the oven.

  20. Christine S. Says:

    I remember playing outside all the time, and putting on puppet shows for the neighborhood kids (with my brother). We were always doing something. Also, I loved being in parades as part of my school marching band, from 4th grade all the way through high school. As someone in the front row, it was my job to lead my column around any horse poo. What a responsibility!

  21. Phyllis Says:

    Every summer my parents took my sister and I camping.I looked forward to the nature programs ran by the camp’s naturalist and the campfire in the evenings.

  22. Catherine Says:

    I loved strawberries as a child and one summer my Grandmother handed me a bucket and told me that she would make as many pies as I could pick strawberries for! It kept me busy for a little while, but when it was done, there were 7 strawberry pies. My Grandmother had me to sit at the kitchen table, and she poored me a glass of milk to wash down what I thought would be a slice of that strawberry pie! To my surprise, she set an entire pie in front of me! To her surprise, I ate the whole thing and I had worked and played so hard that day, that I was not stuffed!!! One of those things that you wouldn’t do on a regular basis, but we both enjoyed that day.

  23. sarah Says:

    My favorite memories are from our family’s 4th of July get-togethers. It was a great time with family members catching up with each other, eating food, and popping fire crackers. My Dad gives train rides (a make shift cho cho train) to all the children, the older kids ride four wheelers, and Moma’s homemade ice cream. What a good day! Can’t wait for it to come around this year.

  24. Terri Peters Says:

    Spending a week at grandparents house

  25. Cathy S Says:

    I remember my Dad being one of those men that never wanted to grow up so we always played games and had “adventure”. One summer he let the front lawn die just so we could spend the evenings having a croquet tornament. That way we never had to take down the equipment and could play each night after supper. Adventures, on the other hand, many times were his way of making a fun time when we got lost somewhere and the car broke down! I miss him so much – thanks for letting me feel him near as I reminisce.

  26. Christine Says:

    going to a friend’s house who had an in-ground swimming pool; i remember the drive there in my parents’ car with the top down–driving through beautiful farm land, smelling the sweet warm summer air and feeling the breeze on my face and arms…also, summer nights at the drive-in movie theatre!

  27. Breana Says:

    My favorite summertime child memory would have to be the family vacations that occured each summer. The car trips taken all over the country are truely unforgetable. A close second would have to be watching baseball games with my daddy in person and on tv.

  28. Eileen Says:

    Going to my grandparents house and staying all night, lived only a mile apart.

  29. kristina herick Says:

    geesh I have lots but my favorite was going to maine with my grandparents and sister for the summer. Going on the boat on the lake, long walks on the dirt road and seeing deer, ice cream after dinner. Im excited about this win it wednesday and try something new. They look so yummy!!

  30. robin gamache Says:


  31. Laura Says:

    I loved going to the lake with my family. We’d spend all day on the boat with my grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins. We’d take a picnic, water ski, swim, and just have a blast!

  32. Monica Says:

    Visiting my grandmother who lived in Colombia. She had a ton of kids my age who lived on her block and my sisters and I would play outside with them for hours everyday. There were no kids in our neighborhood at home so it was great to have this instant band of friends just a few doors away at my grandmom’s house.

  33. Katie C. Says:

    Favorite childhood memories: pea picking, strawberry picking, husking corn outside, jumping rope, running around half naked in big rain puddles, beach combing, napping on the hammock, batting practice, hitting tennis balls off the garage door, water balloon fights, playing kick the can with neighbors….just some of many….oh, to be a kid again!

  34. Janet LaRue Says:

    I remember the smells of spring when I was little and I was in school and the windows would be open and you could just smell the smells of spring-made my belly warm and nice. I also remember getting up early on summer mornings and getting my chores done so that I could go swimming in our pool. We would wake up early and be done by noon-Mom would then spend the entire day outside with us while we swam until we were brown as berries and shriveled from the water! Dad would come home-they would cook dinner outside so they could watch us and we would all swim again until it was dark and into the darkness. What a wonderful time!

  35. Tami Says:

    My memory of childhood— We went to the beach 5 days a week and mom would pack our lunch! Yumm… Soggy cheese sandwiches, bbq chips placed in between the bread and pickles!!! I loved that lunch,, just talking about it makes me want a soggy cheese sandwich – GF of course!! How she got home and made dinner EVERY night is a mystery to me.. It’s tough – we live 15 minutes from the beach!

  36. Kathi French Says:

    The weekly (summer) trip to Dairy Queen with my family. I always got the vanilla soft serve cone with cherry dip!

  37. carrie Says:

    My favorite chidlhood memories are riding my horse Sis down the back roads where we lived and picking blackberries.

  38. Lori Niver Says:

    I loved going with my best friend to her great aunts house on Silver Lake. We would ride our bikes to their house. It seemed like a castle. We would gather snacks and sodas, our picnic food, and take one of the row boats out to the small island in the middle of the lake. We would sit at the picnic table and eat and talk about our dreams for the future. We felt like nothing was impossible.

  39. Cindy Says:

    One of my favorite memories is our big extended family reunions on the 4th of July.

  40. Karen Grdina Says:

    We had a pool in our backyard and our family got together alot to swim. It was like
    a family reunion every weekend.

  41. brian Says:

    I feel that I have to speak up for the men. Going to Wrigley Field, when you first walk up the stairs and look out onto the field, it was magical. In fact it still is to me. Fantastic memories.

    One of my favorites is baking Christmas cookies with my mom and sister. We always made sugar cookies and spent hours frosting them together. And we always made fudge as well!
