Smart Shopper: Freebies


Kangaroo Express is offering a new "ROOcipe" contest and the 2 winners will score a Kangaroo $20 gift card!  I have to admit, some of their recipe ideas sound really tasty and quite easy. I plan to try a few with the kids while they are out of school in a couple weeks.

From their press release:

"Kangaroo Express, is challenging store guests to make festive holiday recipes – called ROOcipes – using candy, snacks and other treats found only at their neighborhood Kangaroo Express store.

Inexpensive and fun to make, ROOcipes are a perfect holiday party host gift, slumber party treat or road trip snack. Just by combining readily available ingredients in fun and creative ways, there is no end to the festive creations that can be made from every day snack favorites found at Kangaroo Express.

For example, the “Peppermint Chocolate Dream” ROOcipe can be made by drizzling a melted Hershey’s® chocolate bar over divided Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats and topping with crushed peppermint candies. “ROLO® Pretzel Poppers” can be whipped up by placing a ROLO® on a snack-size pretzel, melted for just seconds in the microwave or a few minutes in the oven and sandwiched with another pretzel.

For more great ROOcipe ideas, visit the Kangaroo Express Facebook page.

“Our guests already know us as an affordable on-the-go destination for snacks and candy,” said Joe Venezia, senior vice president of operations, Kangaroo Express. “Now we are excited to see how they will use everyday items bought at their local Kangaroo Express to invent unique, delicious ROOcipes.”

Starting on Dec. 8, guests are encouraged to share their favorite ROOcipe over Facebook,   Twitter, or  Instagram with the #ROOcipe hashtag for a chance to win a $20 Kangaroo Express gift card and have their ROOcipe featured on the Kangaroo Express Facebook page. Two winners will be chosen on Dec. 20."
