A New iPhone App and Bertolli Olive Oil Giveaway

I find it unusual that I am about to talk about iPhone app, considering I don't even own an iPhone.  BUT, I do love olive oil and I do love free stuff, so here I am talking about something I can't honestly give you my opinion on one way or another.  Is that selling out?  lol  Well, if so, I guess I'm a sell out.  Sometimes, you do selfish things... I think this might be one of those times for me! :)

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a representative of Bertolli products asking me if I'd be interested in testing out the new iPhone app that featured chef Fabio Viviani along with some incredible recipes, videos, and photos.  I, of course, had to turn them down because as I said previous, I do not own an iPhone.  Regardless of my lack of technological gadgets, they sent me a sample bottle of their olive oil anyway.  They also have been kind enough to offer YOU, my loyal readers, a 17oz bottle of their extra virgin olive oil too!!  So, not only was I selfish in wanting a bottle, but I was also very generous, cause I got one for you too :)

The only thing you have to do.... leave a comment here on my site telling me you want this bottle.  I'm going to also go out on a limb and give you an extra chance to win by leaving me a comment on my facebook page too.  You have until 11:00pm (eastern standard time) Wednesday, November 9th to enter.  Winners will be announced the morning of Thursday, November 10th.  Good luck!

Oh.. and before I go... if you are interested in checking out this new app - here are some details (this information comes directly from a press release dated 8/24/11):

Send ME the olive oil. Forget the phone app. I have two tin cans and some string.

Andrea the Kitchen Witch said...

I'll take that olive oil, thanks! The phone app is something I'd not spend .99, but I don't buy phone apps, only the free ones (if bertolli is wondering). But free oil, heck yeah!

I'm not on Facebook, but yes of course, who wouldn't want to win a bottle of Bertolli Olive Oil?? I use it in cooking AND my soapmaking! So I go through a lot of it. :-) Thanks for the opportunity. BTW, I don't think my phone even knows what an app is.

No iphone here either, but olive oil and I are great friends. ;) Have an excellent day, Jenn!

Big Dude said...

As a Bertolli customer already, I could always use another bottle. I don't even want an iPhone - I'd actually like my current phone to only send and receive calls and not do all of the other things it does (that just confuse me) - I doubt such a device is even available.

I could drink it straight out of the bottle! I cook with olive oil all of the time! Would love to win some!!!

Mary said...

I love free stuff almost as much as I love olive oil. Count me in. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
