Zatarain's Big Game Cravebox

Recommended Posts

Honestly, that was my first - but DEFINITELY my last Twitter Party.  I found it confusing and annoying, and there was a pressure to constantly retweet stuff and answer questions, so there was a lot of repetition, and not much original content.  I felt like I didn't win anything because I wasn't constantly retweeting Cravebox's stuff.  Meh.  Never again!

I "went" to the party because I was trying to figure it out, and it was too much for me. I have a twitter account, but never post. I use it to follow a few people. It wasn't for me either.

I'm in! I entered the drawing after they came out with the email that they are super sizing all the boxes. I'm actually kind of excited about this box so I'm hoping it doesn't disappoint!

I had the same issue when I joined Cravebox's Winter Favorites twitter party.  It was definitely overwhelming.  My first and last time for sure!

I've never done a Twitter party, but I'd like to try one. Maybe it's just one of those things that you have to get used to?

I'll probably buy a bag of shrimp and some hot sausage to go with the rice they'll probably be sending. I'm craving hot wings too. Sounds like we might get a coupon for some kind of iced tea, hot sauce and a box of powdered punch mix. Maybe they'll throw in some purple beads too....woo hoo! lol

I want to try one but am always at a dance class whenever they have those things...

 

I thought for this Cravebox they were sending some kind of seasoned nuts??

I remember in the quiz there was something asking if you liked seasoned nuts, iced tea that was premade??

 

For the dinner I'm making I'm going to buy shrimp, tofu <no one eats sausage where I am making this....lol> and chicken- not wings cuz I hate them and prob the only person eating chicken...

 

Would be nice if they had a dessert mix as I keep on hearing of kings cake. Maybe I'll make a pineapple upside down cake...sounds like it would go good with this food......

 

I actually used to work in a Southern/New Orleans style restaurant a few years ago and the desserts I made there was Pecan pie with bourbon and chocolate, a bread  pudding made with day old bread, brown sugar and eggs ect....., there was a cheesecake but it was pretty plain.

Do you have pictures by any chance? I don't want to make a judgement on this box till I actually see what it looks like. Mine probably won't get here till next week sometime

Looks good!

Kind of what I expected, well did not expect True Lemon iced tea <I do like and buy it...it is good>.

 

I did expect some kind of snack thing and some recipies though and maybe a coupon for some free item at the store as they always seem to have those....

 

And I recall some question about nuts in the survey, so thought there would be a tin of nuts or coupon or something??

Still pleased, I hope my meal turns out good. Guess I'll have to print some recipies to bring with me to make my meal.....

Here's a pic of what I got today. I was surprised by the weight. No paper products.

I forgot to put in the pic, but there were two recipes and some bead necklaces. No coupons though (at least that I got).

Looks like a good box for me but I will say that if it wasn't for the party size upgrade I don't think that it would be worth it in my opinion. I also feel that people hoping to use this box to throw their super bowl party may be a little disappointed. I got this box because I love zatarans so this box is just what I was hoping for.

I agree...if this box wasn't doubled I would have been disappointed. Anyone know the retail value on this box?

    • HAHA:) It is quite funny and even true sometimes;)))
    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
    • Yes, poker is quite interesting for me. But I don't play for money..
    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now.
