Mossy Bayou Foods Southern Cajun Goodies Gift Box Giveaway and Review, $16.50

I am so excited to share with everyone an spirited company from "Down South" who sells some excellent Cajun Products.  They are called Mossy Bayou Foods .

Mossy Bayou Foods is a Louisiana specialty foods company with several products that appeal to those seeking zesty and exciting flavor experiences.

Mossy Bayou Foods was kind enough to send me a Cajun Goodies Gift Box to review and giveaway one of these fantastic Cajun Goodies Gift Boxes to one lucky winner.

The Cajun Goodies Gift Box contains 4 uniquely Southern Cajun products.



- Louisiana Swamp Scum Hotsauce

- Bayou Blend Seasoning

- Louisiana Popcorn Rice

- Cajun Chow-Chow

Price: $16.50


Leading the product line-up is the award-winning LOUISIANA SWAMP SCUM HOT SAUCE. This unique sauce earned a First Place Award in the 2002 FieryFood challenge, sponsored by Chile Pepper Magazine. The hot sauce, developed from an old Cajun recipe, has a delicious smoke flavor and stands alone with its dark “swamp-green” color.

This has become a favorite at our house.  The smokey flavor, mixed with the bite of vinegar and spicy peppers goes well with many things....including cheese covered french fries :)   This sauce really does look like the name!


Bayou Blend Seasoning is a special blend of Cajun spices, with an added Mexican Accent. It does not contain salt or MSG.

I didn't get to use this seasoning yet, but can't wait to add it to some burgers on the grill.  The seasoning smells spicy, but not over powering. 

Louisiana Popcorn Rice is like no other rice I have ever had.  It is a gourmet rice, grown in South Louisiana, with the unique light flavor and aroma of fresh popcorn. 100% Natural.


I was amazed upon opening up the bag of Popcorn Rice it really did smell like fresh popcorn.  I prepared some on the stove top and it turned out perfect.  It wasn't too sticky and had a great texture.  It had just a hint of popcorn flavor and a slight sweetness, that kept making me and my boys come back for more and more.  We just ate it plain.


The last item in the gift box was Original Cajun Chow-Chow.  Like Mossy Bayou Foods says....
It's a "relish with an attitude".  It is made with green Cayenne peppers, onions, garlic, salt and a special blend of spices. 


It was too spicy for me, but my husband LOVES IT!  I have caught him in the refrigerator dipping a spoon into the jar, and taking a bite.

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this gift box came packaged.  It was ready to be wrapped and given as a gift.  I am so glad I had this opportunity to try these new products and now at least one if not two are going to be re-ordered from Mossy Bayou Foods soon.

Now what you have all been waiting for.....the details of the giveaway....

One qualified person will win...a Cajun Goodies Gift Box from Mossy Bayou Foods, Value $16.50 (just like the one I reviewed).
