Chanukah Giveaway #1 | Kosherfest Gift Basket – Worth Over $250

Chanukah is almost here – can you believe it?!

And even though we usually keep our celebrations pretty low-key at our home, I am certainly not averse to spoiling my readers a little bit! 🙂

So I’ve put together a number of special giveaways, which I’ll be rolling out over the next several weeks. Today marks Giveaway #1… and it’s HUUUUGE!

Last month, as many of you know, I took a trip to New Jersey to attend Kosherfest 2011. For this mild Midwesterner, it was truly something to experience…

The food! The people! The hustle and bustle!

And the swag!

Today, I am super excited to be able to pass on some of that fabulous Kosherfest swag to one lucky reader.

Thanks to the generosity of many of the kosher vendors, we have put together this amazing gift basket featuring a smorgasbord of some of the best Chanukah-themed food & products at Kosherfest 2011.

With a retail value of over $250,this Chanukah gift package is filled to the brim with the following incredible goodies:
