For the last few years I have been participating with BzzAgents. It is a word-of-mouth marketing network. Anyone can join. You get offered campaigns where you get to try new products for free. Then you submit reports about all your conversations regarding that product. Your comments can be good or negative but most important it must be honest. It is a great way to try new products and spread the word about them. My latest campaign is for McCain Purely Potatoes. You can find them in the frozen section of your grocery store. The potatoes are already washed, peeled and diced. They come in sweet potato or white potato chunks. You can put the whole packet in the microwave to make mashed potatoes or roast them in the oven. I picked up the sweet potato packet. I was only able to find them at Longo's. Wal-Mart didn't have them. They were pretty expensive for the amount you get...around $4 for one pack.
I prepared them by tossing them in 3 tbsp of oil and some salt. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet covered with foil and sprayed with oil. Bake in a 400 F oven for about 30 minutes, turning them over after 15 minutes. When they are done sprinkle with some cayenne pepper. They were extremely easy to prepare and with most of the prep work done they were very quick to make. My youngest son loved them and I thought they would be great for making baby food. But the price would make me think twice about buying these again.
