Some say the best things in life are free. But that can’t really be true, because food is one of the best things in life and it is rarely ever free. And when you really think about it, is anything really ever free? I mean, maybe it doesn’t cost you money, but it could cost you time, or effort, which are sometimes costlier than actual money. But I digress, this is not a philosophy blog (or IS IT?!), this is a food blog of the highest standards, which is why when Jack in the Box said they were giving away their new sandwiches for free yesterday I took a ride to try them out.
***Congrats to And/Or, the winner of the free T-Shirt, look out for it.***
There are a lot of t-shirt companies out in the world that try to create funny and ironic shirts. Not nearly enough of them make shirts that so hilariously depict the plight of unvegans. The crew at Snorgtees.com has some great unvegan shirts, though, and they were nice enough to send me a couple for myself. In the spirit of community, and as a way to reward my loyal readers, I thought I would throw a bit of contest to win one of the shirts.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Country Bob’s, Inc., a little company looking to get the word out on their sauce, Country Bob’s All-Purpose Sauce. They loved my blog (obviously) and wanted to send me some free sauce to write about. Being a shameless sell-out, I jumped at the offer.
I researched the company a bit (ie. checked the website) and found that Country Bob gave a whole lot of credit for his success to God. Hey, if athletes can do it, why not sauce-makers? I also found on the website that Christ himself had risen through the ranks of Country Bob’s to become CEO. I’m not sure if he usurped the title from Country Bob himself, but Bob seemed to have no problem putting “Christ is our CEO” on the website.
After about a week, my package of sauces came in the mail. I decided a Labor Day BBQ would be the perfect chance to test out the sauce and to get a range of opinions, specifically from my Jewish friends. To complete the holy trinity of monotheistic religions present at the meal, I picked up some Halal ground beef to make burger patties.
Schwan’s is giving away free frozen delivery food starting tomorrow for their first 500,000 new customers. The only catch is that it has to be less than ten bucks and in their delivery area. But seriously, any free meat delivered to my door sounds like a wonderful thing. Looks like they have a lot of animalian offerings, so check it out here.
Click on that picture to the left to get a free Pulled Pork Slider coupon from White Castle. The coupon is good through June 30th and looks pretty damn good.
I have a hard time believing you can make a real slider out of pulled pork, but since White Castle burgers are true sliders, maybe they are on to something…
