When you attend a blogging conference, you get a lot of good swag. You may remember the amazing goodies that I received at the Blend Retreat last May…
Since I was able to arrive early enough to do the McCormick Spice Tour, I also got a goodie bag to take home from that!
Inside the bag:
(Some of these spices may have actually been from the Fitbloggin’ swag bag- but I can’t remember which!)
There was nice set of measuring spoons, a whisk (that rotates so it’s flat- brilliant!), some hazelnut extract, two kinds of cinnamon, garlic and some special spice blends.
The salt-free line contains several different spices blended together- all of which sound amazing! I already used the Fiesta Citrus- and have been putting it on everything!
There were also these neat little kits:
This has all of the spices measured out for a specific recipe with instructions on how to make it attached. Probably not something I would buy… but I’m eager to try it out anyway!
We also got a coupon for 25% off an item from the McCormick store (which is in the Light Street Pavilion at the IH), where I bought these:
I looove smoked paprika, and was almost out of it at home. Perfect timing! And the salt blend is another one that I’ll be putting on everything.
Alright. On to the Fitbloggin’ swag.
We were each handed a nice Reebok gym bag upon checking in, which was filled with goodies!
No, it wasn’t only filled with Popchips, silly! There were all kinds of goodies…
Inside the bag:
- Erewhon Buckwheat & Hemp cereal
- Soyjoy bars
- a Zone Perfect Simple bar
- Naturemade vitamins
- a biPro whey protein sample packet
- a Blender bottle (a very cool one, at that!)
- a full size canister of fitmixer aminos
- a towel
- tons of coupons
- spices from McCormick
- maple syrup (which missed out on the group shot, so I got it to pose solo)
We were also handed a green Fitbloggin’ 12 shirt and Reebok tank (outside of the bag).
I really love the Fitbloggin’ t-shirt, but it’s HUGE (and mine is a small, so I have to wonder how big it is on the teeny tiny girls!). Like, ridiculously big and unflattering. The Reebok tanks fit like a GLOVE though- I want ten more of them! The Crossfit wristband also came from the Reebok table.
We also got a pair of Reebok RealFlex shoes. Yay, shoes!! We didn’t get to choose the color, and were each just handed a box. It was kind of fun to open them up to see which color you got…
I would have never picked out these shoes on my own in a million years… but they’re kind of growing on me! I bet Annette would like them.
There was also a lot of swag given away at the expo- and I definitely didn’t take advantage of all of it (I’m pretty sure that I wasn’t the only one hoarding bags of Popchips!).
I also got a sweet 3-pack of Reebok socks just for trying on a pair of shoes- and then another one for Tweeting this super sexy photo of myself.
#nofilter there, folks.
There were a couple of things that I forgot to photograph, because I had already put them away- like an apron, a bumper sticker (or two) and a stainless steel water bottle. There’s a good chance that I’m forgetting something else, too…
Between the conference itself and all of the swag, I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth!
Have you ever tried any of the products shown above? What do you think of those shoes?
