This is a sponsored post for Sabra Greek Yogurt Dips. All opinions are my own.
I had the opportunity to travel to New York City to visit the Sabra Greek Yogurt Dip factory for a press visit. You’re probably familiar with Sabra Hummus Dips, but its lesser known brother, the Greek Yogurt Dip division, is on its way to grocery stores nationwide. And let me tell you…you need to give them a try.
One of the best features of the Greek Yogurt Dips is that they are made with crisp, fresh veggies. Take these perfectly cubed chunks of cucumber, waiting to be added to freshly made yogurt. The small plant located in Farmington, NY processes over 8000 lbs of farm fresh vegetables a week. Yes, a week. Crazy. The yogurt is made in-house for every batch of dips. Fresh yogurt + farm fresh veggies = a refreshingly better dip….with crunch and texture and crisp veggies. Get a coupon HERE to taste test for yourself.
When I arrived in NYC I cabbed over to dinner with some of my most favorite foodies: Brandy, Gina, Carrie & Fabiola. Typically when you attend a press event, there’s dinner out somewhere, but this was a little different. We actually prepared dinner for the PR folks. And let me tell you, it was awesome. So much laughter and a nice easy atmosphere. It was truly amazing.
The gorgeous Gina (Running to the Kitchen) made a beautiful beef loin and Brandy (Nutmeg Nanny) carved it up perfectly. It was seriously hard to not keep nibbling on the perfectly roasted loin. Other items on the menu were Coconut Shrimp from Deb (Smith Bites), Roasted Veggies & Baked Potatoes with all the fixins from Carrie (Poet in the Pantry), a giant salad from yours truly and Roasted Berries and Cream from Fabi (Not Just Baked). Oh…and bourbon, lots of bourbon from Brandy. Cuz that’s how she rolls.
After our delicious and relaxing dinner, we all decided to walk back to our hotel. Along the way we passed Radio City Music Hall, Times Square, the Ice Rink where they put up the giant tree every year and a whole lot of amazing retail shops. At times I had no idea which way to look. So much to see, so many shiny objects. Did I mention this was my first ever trip to New York City? Unless you count the time I flew over the city on my way to New Jersey. Ok, you’re right, that doesn’t count.
We managed to squeeze in a little artistic expression. This is Stephanie and she’s the amazing rep for Sabra. She completely crushed the “paint this veg” challenge with that purple pepper masterpiece. I, on the other hand, have decided that painting is not my forte. I’ll stick to planting veggies- not painting them.
It was a whirlwind adventure, but so worth every second to sample Sabra Greek Yogurt Dips, laugh with friends and experience a new city. Don’t forget you can get a coupon for the dips HERE as well as find out about all of the different dips and get info on the traveling tastings.
P.S. – the Diced Onion is my fave. Try it on a baked sweet potato. Oh baby…so good.
