    I just discovered Quinoa, and I love it. I’m going to tell my local health food store about Edison Grainery. We definitely don’t have all their products. My husband even loves quinoa! I’ll keep checking your website fore more recipes.

  2. Aimee Smith says

    I am very blessed that I was introduced to quinoa this year. Eat it daily! Would love to try any of the products! Thank you.

  3. Anna C says

    I love seeing your creativity in the kitchen with all of the recipes you post! I switched to quinoa pasta shortly after I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I am so grateful for the variety out there for those of us with gluten sensitivities. I’d love to try the quinoa flakes for sure!!

  4. Danielle Cherry says

    I’m really excited to hear of a quinoa krispy! I don’t eat much for sweets but Krispie Treats are still a childhood favorite of mine. LOL! I’m very new to the quinoa world in the last few months and I’ve fallen in love. I’m trying to find every way to incorporate quinoa into every meal without getting bored. I’m not a vegetarian but I want to eat a healthier diet and cut back somewhat on my meat intake. I’m grateful when I find new great quinoa recipes. Thanks for the chance!

  5. Cindy Valdez says

    I love Quinoa! I have replaced it with rice and it’s even better. I would love to try something new! Thanks for your wonderful info and recipes!!

  6. Christin Mitchell says

    Thanks for doing this giveaway! I would love to try the quinoa flakes. I have no idea what I would really do with them, but I would love to try them out. :)

  7. Danielle Fiedler says

    I recently discovered quinoa and my family loves it. I would love to try other quinoa products. Thanks for the opportunity.

  8. Bethany says

    What a great giveaway! In addition to Edison Grainery’s Raw Organic Cacao Powder and Nibs, I am interested in trying the organic red and black quinoa.

  9. Hannah S says

    I have liked you on Facebook and am loving the posts that pop up on my newsfeed!!
    I am super keen to try Quinoa flakes as a breakfast!!! and of course all the other types of Quinoa….I really didnt know that there were so many different varieties….especially the pasta!!!

  10. Stephanie says

    I love quinoa!!! It’s usually the first thing that I get my friends to eat in order to prove that being gluten free isn’t that hard and is actually super yummy!

  11. Laura says

    I just followed you on pinterest! and I have been following you on facebook for quite awhile! I tried you quinoa granola! it was fabulous! I love the multi colored quinoa the best, but am intrigued by the black quinoa on the list! if it’s anything like black rice, sweet and nutty…*drool*!

  12. Laura M says

    Wow! That’s fabulous! :-) I found quinoa a couple years ago, then my body went through some issues where I couldn’t eat any kind of grain (or just about anything, really). It’s now back to accepting quinoa, which makes me happy as i love it and it’s a good source for a vegetarian protein boost. Considering I “discovered” it just before my body went all haywire, I didn’t really get to cook it much. Your recipes help with variety! :-)

  13. Dori says

    Thank you for this awesome chance to win! I love the quinoa flakes but have a hard time digesting the grains…however my dogs LOVE it!!!!!!!!!

  14. Jessica T says

    These products look amazing, I would love to try them all but especially the pasta. I generally use brown rice pasta because I can’t find quinoa pasta without “extra” ingredients, so this looks incredible! I already follow you on FB, but will also subscribe to your e-mail RSS feed. Thanks for the awesome recipes!

  15. Beverly Oommen says

    Hi Alyssa, I really like your blog. I would like to try the Quinoa Krispies and the flakes. I am not a big pasta eater. Thanks so much for all you do!

  16. Beth Archer says

    I just purchased my first bag of Quinoa and found your site when i went looking for recipes. Although i feel a bit intimidated about cooking something new like this, i’m excited for the health benefits for me and my kiddos. Thanks!

    OH…and i hope i win!

  17. Allison says

    Rainbow Quinoa sounds intriguing! Your blog has also been a big inspiration of eating better to help with those stomach problems :( Thanks!

  18. KellyA says

    I just started following your blog today and am so excited to read more! I have seen many recipes that utilize quinoa flakes so I would love to win a free box and try it out :)

  25. Vonda Sellers says

    I would love to try the red quinoa and any of the pastas. The only quinoa I’ve ever had is the light yellow color quinoa, so I’d love to try some of these other items! Thanks!

    Congratulations! How exciting! And boy what a great giveaway! I LOVE quinoa and eat it almost everyday! And I can see you do too! What gave that away, I wonder? ;)
    I’ve been trying a lot of quinoa pasta lately! Delicious!
    I’ve actually never tried red or black quinoa and I really really want to try!! And quinoa crispies?!?! mmmm…

  27. Michelle says

    Would love to try new kinds of quinoa! It’s not readily available here in stores really, just basic quinoa in the health food isle, and just 1 brand ; )

  28. Dana Adams says

    I’ve never had quinoa, so any of these items would be a first for me and my family. I’m really curious about the crispies though. :-)

  29. Donna Sewash says

    I want to try every single quinoa product there is – I transitioned to a completely meatless diet 4 months ago & love the versatility quinoa offers.

  30. Angela D says

    I would love to win this prize package! Everything in it sounds good! My new obsession is recipes with quinoa & chia seeds so this would be perfect for experimenting in my kitchen!

  31. Emily Williamson says

    I would love to try the quinoa spaghetti!
    I just had my morning dose of quinoa porridge with green apple and sultanas :)

  32. Wild Child says

    Since going gluten free for health reasons, I haven’t had any type of pasta for the past year and a half. I would love to try the Organic Quinoa Penne! Truthfully, I’d love anything from Edison Grainery. It all looks great!

  33. Karen says

    I have yet to try quinoa in any form yet and have been more than interested in doing so and reaping all of the health benefits. This would give me a chance to know what I should be buying and using and discover what everyone else already seems to know. :-) Thanks!

  34. Tamara Holland says

    I have often used quinoa as a rice or couscous substitute, but have never seen this type of product. I’ve got to try them!

  35. Christina says

    I’m so glad to have found your site!! Love the wealth of information!! I would most like to try the quinoa orzo!! We don’t eat wheat anymore and miss my mother-in-laws Mediterranean Orzo salad!

  37. Michelle Carter says

    I would love to try the quinoa crispies. I only discovered quinoa about 2 months ago and since before then the only grain I could eat (and no potatoes either) was rice, I am super excited to try new products.

    I follow on Facebook.

  40. Kim McDowell says

    I am a Quinoa newbie. I am just learning all about this amazing food. I made it for the first time yesterday. Very excited to incorporate it into my cooking.

    I love Penne pasta but my thighs don’t. Quinoa delicious and does my body good. I never imagined there could be Penne Quinoa. This needs to be in my cabinet.
    Rainbow Quinoa sounds fun too!

  43. janmarie says

    My Peruvian family (from the land of quinoa) has many unique and wonderful recipes. Uncle Lucho lived well into his 90’s with sound mind and body – he swore it was the quinoa. I’d like to try the organic rainbow quinoa. I am a facebook fan and I just shared your contest on my timeline!

  44. Kim says

    Just found the Queen of Quinoa, great page. Love quinoa and always eager to find new ways to incorporate it into my meals. Would love to try some of the Edison Grainery products. Keep up the great work!
