Olivia’s Crouton Company- Review and Giveaway

by Lisa on September 19, 2010

Before our move (one month ago), I was sent a case of Olivia’s Crouton Company products.  Of course with the move and unpacking, my use of these products and review were put on hold.  Well, I am PLEASED to say we finally dove into our case of crunchy, tasty goodness.    Olivia’s Crouton Company was started by Francine (Olivia’s mom), in her Vermont kitchen.  Her story is an interesting one, as the company has grown.  I hope you will take the time to read more about the company and products HERE on her website.   You can also check out their blog at Olivia’s Crouton Blog.  Francine says:

All our products are baked with fresh Vermont breads, special seasonings, and no preservatives or artificial anything.

We produce a wholesome, all natural, uncomplicated product. As a family we enjoy these tasty treats and we hope you will be fond of them too.

Here are a list of products I received:

  • Cornbread Stuffing
  • Traditional Stuffing
  • Parmesan Pepper Croutons
  • Vermont Cheddar and Dill Croutons
  • Multi-Grain with Garlic Croutons
  • Butter and Garlic Croutons
  • Organic Garlic and Herb Croutons

The first Olivia’s inspired meal was pork chops, steamed broccoli and  Olivia’s Cornbread Stuffing.  For the stuffing, I sauteed onion and celery in button.  I then added the cornbread stuffing, salt and pepper to taste and 2 cups chicken broth.  Because I love the flavor of poultry seasoning in my stuffing, I added this seasoning as well.    The stuffing was a hit.  I liked that the stuffing was not overly seasoned, leaving you to season to your own preferences.

Yummy Crouton Goodness!

This week we tore into the Organic Garlic and Herb Croutons.  I thought this flavored crouton would be great addition to our salad and my homemade lasagna.  I was correct.  The croutons were so crunch and fresh tasting.  I appreciated the flavors where not overpowering.  They were not overly seasoned, so they did not distract from the flavors of the salad and lasagna.  My family visiting from out of town agreed.  The croutons were wonderful.

Organic Garlic and Herb

I have already decided my next salad will be have the addition of Olivia’s Vermont Cheddar and Dill Croutons.  Don’t they sound wonderful?  I was really pleased with these products.  They are well made, all natural, no preservatives, AND great tasting!   What do you think?  Would you like to try some of Olivia’s croutons?  Well, one reader will get that chance.

I can think of a ton of uses for these! I LOVE cornbread stuffing so I would probably tear into that first. They all sound wonderful though. Great giveaway, thanks!
