Schwan's Online Grocery Home Delivery - Review & Giveaway

 

Confession:
I don't love grocery shopping. Who does? 
I also don't love meal planning. 
I don't mind cooking.
I just hate trying to come up with dinner ideas every single night
 only to have a kid turn up his/her nose at the offerings.

I was excited to try Schwan's Home Delivery. I've seen the Schwan's trucks around but we'd never ordered food from them before. Rand and I looked over their website together. It's easy to navigate, understand and has a wide variety of offerings. Rand's tummy was rumbling and he wanted a little of everything.

Our order arrived in a special insulated pouch. Molly was initially disappointed because she was just sure they were delivering her an actual swan. 

The evening that I attended the KSL Preview was a perfect night for Rand to introduce some of the offerings from Schwan's. He didn't have to freak out about what was for dinner and even though he's a pretty good cook and knows his way around the kitchen, the hot & spicy chicken breast fillets turned out perfectly. They put them on buns with some fresh sliced tomatoes and a little cheese and they all agreed that they were just as good as our favorite fast food chicken sandwiches. They saved me half a piece to try when I got home that night. So generous.



The Triple Berry Blend turned into delicious smoothies. The berries were plump and ripe and I could pretty much eat them all day.


I'm not a fan of frozen pizza. I don't buy it. Ever. However, as far as frozen pizzas go, the Special Recipe Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza was pretty good. The price was fairly reasonable for a frozen pizza though it really only fed three of us for lunch. (Shh! Don't tell the other kids.)


Our family loves fish. Seriously loves it. It's actually one of the only foods that all of my kids will eat without complaining. Needless to say, we were super excited to try the Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon. But really, we weren't overly impressed. It was OK but for the price we weren't over-the-moon about it.



Overall, our experience with Schwan's Home Delivery Groceries was positive. It would be nice to have our freezer full of some easy, time-saving entrees on those nights when we're running to meetings or feeling sick (like this entire last two weeks) and not really in the mood to cook. The website is easy to use and well designed. Schwan's offers a wide variety of foods that are easy and can definitely save a family time. For busy families Schwan's can be a life saver!

Even better, if you order now you can save at Schwan's.
