“NOTHING ON EARTH SO BEAUTIFUL AS THE FINAL HAUL ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT“ ~Steve Almond
I love the Halloween Parties before the Halloween and so do my children. There is nothing quite as fun as getting to do ‘dress rehearsal’ before the big day. Festive music, pumpkin painting, candy-eating, and junk food all seem to play into this some way or another.
Last evening, getting ready to get into the spirit of Halloween, the kids and I joined Giant Eagle for a special Halloween Party at their Corporate Offices. Music, baked goods, Giant Eagle Pizzas, Candy, Pumpkins and ghosts, goblins, skeletons, pirates and more joined in on all the fun.
As we walked into corporate we could smell the scent of fresh baked pizza wafting in the hallway and the kids just kept saying that they could not wait to eat. Greeted by Pirates, Skeletons and Cowboys we entered the room and grabbed a seat for a night full of Halloween fun: Magic, Music, A Balloon Artist and plenty of great Giant Eagle Food!
The party was stocked with pizza just like your tables can be for Halloween Eve next week! Giant Eagle is making it easy to do-stock up on their Ultimate Rise, Brick Oven, Thin Crust Pizza you should know that they are only $3.99 this week and as a special BONUS, when you purchase 3 participating Giant Eagle Frozen Pizzas in ONE transaction with your ADVANTAGE card you get a .10 Fuelperks Bonus! (You are saving up to $2.50 each)
WHO CARES ABOUT A SALE IF WE DON’T KNOW HOW THEY TASTE!
If you have not tried Giant Eagle Frozen Pizza you are missing out on a very Good cut of pizza that you can BAKE right in your own OVEN! Very little preparation on your part and a great, quick meal can be created by adding: cut up fresh broccoli and baby but carrots (also on sale) with ranch dressing for dipping and possibly round it out with the Itty Bitty Cupcakes (Salty Caramel flavor) from the Giant Eagle Bakery! A delicious, easy way to prepare a meal for your family with very little effort.
How does Giant Eagle Pizza taste: I offer it to my family regularly and I would gladly put it against any of the name brand frozen pizzas. The collection boasts, thin and thick crust, brick oven square, meat, meatless and more. The sauce is basic, there is not too much or too little, and the seasoning is good, the crust is crispy(when prepared right, we use parchment paper) and the kids eat it without question!
ANOTHER PIZZA TO TRY & SAVE ON
I happened to stumble into a brand I really had not seen when I am whipping through the store trying to beat the clock, but it definitely has my attention now as I consumed it heartily last evening.
Dr. Oetker. The pizzas are amazing! THIN-crusted pizza that has a crispy crust and a FRESH taste beyond many BOXED, FROZEN pizzas I have consumed! This line of Ristorante is on sale this week so you can try it ~~~ BOGO with your Advantage Card. Make sure to TAKE ADVANTAGE of the sale to get a great new- to -you product!
This line of Pizza was perfect for me because it had many meatless options! There is just the right proportion of sauce, toppings and cheese. The Pizzas by Dr. Oetker are called Ristorante and I do believe you will feel like you are dining in a side street trattoria when you Manga(EAT) one of these. There are several flavors to select from:
Pizza Spinaci **My personal favorite(flavor creation on this pizza included sun-ripened tomatoes, leaf spinach, cheese and mozzarella, and a hearty garlic sauce)but possibly not a good option for all the people I breathed on later:)
Pizza Quattro Formaggi(4 cheese)
Pizza Speciale(MEAT )
While you may shake your head and say nope to this thought…… I honestly can say, if I make this pizza at home for myself, I am CONSUMING the entire pizza MYSELF. It is thin crust and the size lends itself to eating. The entire box consumed would not be more than 870 calories and each calorie would be worth the taste! Dr. Oetker Ristorante Pizza was THAT good! A Hamburger French Fry Combo will cost you more calories than this pizza!
SWEET & SALTY TREATS ~ IT IS AFTER ALL HALLOWEEN
No Halloween Party would be complete without sweets and treats and Giant Eagle offers a CAULDRON full of wickedly great tasting sweets:
We actually ate the Itty Bitty Cupcakes, Salty Caramel flavor last night. I am not sure if you have the will power to hold back after eating one, because honestly, one is not enough!! I think you will be hiding the container from the kids! Sweet vanilla with a rich icing and a center filled with caramel topped with salt it is like a small piece of heaven in the palm of your hand and my daughter kept eating them!(umm so did I) This week they are on special at the GE Bakery! A must for any gathering!
Don’t forget to stock up on your candy by the bag and that is on sale too! Make sure to use your Advantage Card to maximize your savings!
