Freebie Friday!



Welcome to another edition of Freebie Friday, where I tell you what free samples and full sized products I received in the mail and how you can get them too. Someone asked me why I do a 'Freebie Friday" each week, so I'll tell you.

A while back I listed all the free samples and wins that I had received that previous year and so many people didn't believe that I could have gotten so many free things. So I decided to prove it by taking a picture every week and sharing the sites that I found the links to the freebies at. So now you too can get great free samples coming to your mailbox each week.

  You can find links to great samples at Hey It's Free and Freebie Shark.

This week I received:

An envelope of bumper stickers and a funny letter from Adult Swim. A couple of months ago Adult Swim said if you signed up, they would send you a surprise. They set up their page that the freebie form was on a page that was going to act like a page would have back in the 90's with pop ups galore. So if you had the patience to keep exing out of the pop ups and finally get the form filled out, you were sent these funny bumper stickers and a letter from "Satan". Totally worth it.


It was a slow freebie week so I thought I would also share something new that I tried.


I've been wanting to try gnocchi for a while and Ken found this in the store so he bought it. I was really underwhelmed by it. I think it was the texture that threw me off. To me it was just not great and even the taste wasn't very good. So one more thing off my list to try but I'll keep trying new things. 

Do you like gnocchi?

  1. Well that's a freebie. lol

    I do like gnocchi. But I don't ever eat it plain. It's like a pasta base when I eat it. I like it fried up, too, so it's a little firmer. Bummer it didn't work for you. I've not seen that brand before.

    1. The package said to boil it forst and then fry it in a butter garlic sauce which is what I did and the texture to me was like those doughy dumpling that my mom used to try to make out of biscuit dough. lol

      That freebie was just hilarious.

  2. Gnocchi is a pasta substitute you need to eat with a good sauce. Some people prefer its meatier texture. That letter from Satan looks hilarious - did it ask you for your rectum size?!!

    1. The texture of it is what threw me off. I really thought I would like it. The letter was funny. It was a good freebie.

  3. The HELL bumper sticker is funny to me because I get tired of seeing people with those on their bumper. Usually, they are hard to figure out, like PEI (Prince Edward Island). Who cares?

    Omg, I hate gnocchi. That is so popular around here because of the population. Perogis are awful as well!

    Have a great weekend, Mary! I read your last comment on Blue's blog and I'm so sorry for what you went through as a kid. You have been through a lot and deserve happiness. Thanks for brightening my day with your posts!

    1. The bumper sticker and letter sure made me smile.

      Yeah, it just didn't do it for me at all. The texture was not a good one for me.

      Thank you. I appreciate you saying that.

  8. I like gnocchi, but I wouldn't say I love it and yeah, when its rubbery I don't like that texture either.

    LOL, at first I thought you rec'd swag from Eve Langlais for her Welcome to Hell series. That's hilarious!

    1. Maybe if the gnocchi were home made or a better brand wouldn't have had that texture. I'm not sure.

      Oh that is funny. I love Eve Langlais too.

  9. That bumper sticker and the rest of the package sounds fun!

    I really like gnocchi, I usually eat it with a tomato pasta sauce. I don't mind the texture of gnocchi, but I do understand how a texture can ruin a food for you. For me that's why I don't like mushrooms, can't stand the texture.
