Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Review & Giveaway

We were recently sent a fun new pack from Gorton's to try out their new Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks! The pack included free product coupons, an adult and child-size Gorton's aprons and a plush of the new Smart & Crunchy mascot, Smarty Crunchman! 

So first we had to go on a treasure hunt to find them! The joy of living in a smaller town where you are not likely to find anything when it first comes out LOL After visiting a few stores in the last few weeks we had found them! 

Next was trying them out for dinner that night! Preparing them by baking in the oven for about 22 minutes and flipping once. 

The fish taste was noticeably lighter and tasted different than the original fish sticks. That could be because these are made with 100% Wild-Caught Alaskan Pollock. Also the breading on them is thicker which gives them a really nice crunchy bite. So we covered why they are crunchy...what about the smart you ask? These new fish sticks have 50% less fat than the regular fish sticks and are just 180 calories per serving. 

They are already seasoned with Panko Breadcrumb but you can add your own take on them too! Maybe add a little lemon on top before baking? Maybe pair it with a homemade tartar sauce? Gorton's has a recipe section for you to check out to enhance your meals! And be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter for all the new goodies!

Want more goodies now? Be sure to enter in the Smart & Crunch Sweeps where someone is going to win the ultimate family vacation getaway to 1 of 4 locations. You can enter to win daily through April 20th when you click HERE. And if you are anxious to try out the new fish sticks be sure to grab this $1.00 off coupon when you head to the store! 

And thanks to the wonderful people at Gorton's we have a prize pack to giveaway to one lucky Clair's Freebies fan! The pack includes 2 free product coupons so you can try out the new Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks yourself, 2 Gorton branded Aprons and your own Smarty Crunchman mascot! To enter for your chance to win simply use the Rafflecopter below. Giveaway begins now and ends on April 23rd at 11:59 pm eastern time. 
Good Luck!!
