My Favorite Cheesehead (& a Giveaway from Orville Redenbacher’s)

This is my friend Jessika with FishBaby (now FishChick3) in her arms. Jessika has always been one to give my tired arms a break. She and her husband held vigil in the hospital waiting room while I labored with our first baby. It was a long night!

She was the first to babysit that first baby, besides my mom, of course. And she has done FishKid-duty on more than one occasion. In fact, Jessika, has been quick to come to my aid whenever time and space have allowed her to do so.

We’ve been friends for over 15 years, and Jessika has stuck with me through thick and thin. When I’ve gone off on some wild and crazy stunt (be it freezer cooking or moving cross country), she has always supported me, even if she didn’t get it.

When others have abandoned my friendship, she has remained steadfast.

Jessika is one of those ladies who will take on herculean tasks — for the benefit of others. I take on herculean tasks — for the benefit of myself. See, the difference between us is bigger than just how we spell our name.

(I’m Jessica with a C; she’s Jessika with a K.)

Jessika with a K is one of the handful of lovely people with whom I could share anything — and she would still like me when I was done talking. That’s a rare bird, that.

She is, truly, one in a million.

My Favorite Cheesehead

She’s also unique in the fact that she is one of the few women I know who truly loves football. She’s a lifelong Packers fan.Yes, really.

(Me? I’m just here for the food. Please pass the Sour Cream Onion Dip.)

But, the men in my life love football as does one of my best friends, so I’m learning. When we get together on Game Day, I have to find something else to do besides just yak it up. Jessika wants to watch the game!

Go figure.

Recently, the folks at Orville Redenbacher’s gave me an assignment: to create a Monday Night Football Gift Basket and give it to someone. Well, of course, the first person who came to mind was my favorite Cheesehead!

Jessika is such a giver, it was really fun to have a chance to lavish goodness on her.

My Monday Night Football Gift Basket

It was a joint effort by FishPapa and me to compile the contents of Jessika’s basket. He is, after all, the resident armchair quarterback at our house, so he had some great ideas.

Here’s what we came up with:

Orville Redenbacher’s Flavors Popcorn, in White Cheddar – This is a fun new product that fans of flavored — and unflavored — popcorn will love. The microwaveable packets come with the flavoring “on the side.” I’m a very “on the side” kind of girl, so this really appeals to me.

You get to add as much or as little of the cheese sprinkles as you would like, making it customizable to suit everybody. The packets also come in Extra Cheese and Sea Salt and Vinegar flavors.

We popped up three bags recently and then laid out all the sprinkle packets to let the kids help themselves. The kids loved to make their own creations. There were no leftovers. And as always, the popcorn all popped. Hardly an old maid in the bag.

Green Bowl Set – Packers fans have to have green bowls to eat their cheesy popcorn in, right?

An Aaron Rodgers Superbowl Packers Jersey – Hubs is an aficionado of football jerseys. Last year he found a great source of authentic jerseys at really great prices. He treated our football friends with jerseys last year. We tried to get Jessika one, but the women’s version we ordered was a little too blinged out for our tastes — and hers. I don’t think that Aaron Rodgers wears rhinestones.

This year I think we got the right jersey, complete with captain’s patch and a Superbowl patch in commemoration of last year’s Packers triumph.

A Monday Night Football Chili kit – Unfortunately, Jessika lives about 3 hours away, so we can’t easily get together for dinner, like in the old days. But, the next best thing is providing everything she needs to make supper at her house. The kit includes all the cans, seasonings, and chips (as well as the recipe) for one of our favorite chilis. She just needs to put it all in the crockpot on Monday morning and she’s good to go for Game Night.

Her favorite pop – I know that Jessika has a preferred beverage. So I bought her a 2-liter to share with her family as well as an 8-pack of those itty bitty cans so that she can indulge herself whenever they’re not looking she wants.

A football cake pan and a cake mix – Jessika and I both love to cook, often swapping recipes and talking about yummy things to eat. This is a fun cake kit for her and the kids to bake up some Sunday afternoon.

A bucket of chocolates – I know how much Jessika loves to relax watching a game. And isn’t chocolate just a natural accompaniment? These are small snack size bars, so she can share. If she wants. I gussied them up with a few Packers stickers.

(The team posts logos for free download. I did a little cropping and shrinking and printed them on name badge stickers which are a perfect fit for snack size candy bars.)

Slippers reminiscent of the Packers’ colors and a cozy blanket – It’s really hard to find Packers gear in Chargers country. But, I did find these slippers in green and gold leopard print as well as a cozy blanket. I think the slippers have got a little spunk. They’re still fanwear, but not overly so. And the blanket looks like just the right thing to cuddle up with.

A big green bucket – Finishing off the Packers green theme, I chose a large, multi-purpose green bucket to gift it all in. Jessika can use it to store blankets, shoes, sports equipment, pool stuff, whatever. Love the large size!

The best part about the large size is that this is all too big for me to ship. Oh darn! That means that we have to get together, Jess. Certainly you don’t want to wait until December, do you? Get your calendar out, girl friend, and let’s find a closer date! ;)

  57. I love to snack on Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn & recently attended a popcorn educational seminar in White County Indiana where some of his popcorn is actually grown! My favorite flavor is Kettle Corn, but I would enjoy trying the White Cheddar, as well as Sea Salt & Vinegar. The “on the side” toppings is a great idea! Like your friend Jessika, I am a big football fan, but unlike her team, my team – the Colts – haven’t won yet and are playing tonight in Monday night football. Crossing my fingers now!

  86. We go through phases of eating popcorn. we use Orvilles but pop our own the “old fashioned way.”. my kids and husband are not a fan of kettle corn but I think if they had salty flavors rather than sweet, they would enjoy it.

    And I thought he was the only one who called the unpopped stuff “old maids”!

  96. I am a fan of orville on facebook and life as mom on facebook!!

  124. What an awesome friend and gift! I will eat more Orville Redenbacher popcorn now that they have an extra cheese flavor provided my store carries it. Popcorn is a no-guilt snack at my house because of the whole grains. Great flavors??? Bonus!

  125. I would definately eat more popcorn now that they have the white cheddar flavor option.

  126. That’s an awesome gift idea! I have brother-in laws and an uncle that are big football fans!

  135. misty gorman says:

    we eat A LOT of popcorn! and we watch A LOT of packers football! it is a great combination:) personally, i would like to try the salt and vinegar, that is my favorite chip, so it has to be great on popcorn too.

  136. I’m definitely more likely to eat it now that there are more flavors!

  137. I was craving popcorn last night so this sounds especially good to me. I think the flavorings sound like an interesting idea.

  138. the white cheddar would be great! This woman is great, I love the packers too :)

  139. Flavor options are a good thing – especially for days when plain is too plain!

  140. My kids love any kind of popcorn, its a regular staple at our house. They would probably really like to try the white chedder. I am personally a fan of extra butter and kettle corn!

  141. I like Life as Mom and Orville on Facebook!

  142. We already eat a lot of Orville. I’d love to try the extra cheese.

  143. White cheddar, for sure.

  144. I am a big fan of plain popcorn (salt only. ) However, I certainly would be inclined to try their new flavors, especially since the seasoning is “on the side” and I can add as much or as little as I want. Great idea!

  145. I would love to win and would love to try to white cheddar. I hope it tastes like the smart food!

  146. I’d like to try the vinegar but a bar and fix your own would be fun

  147. I would love to try the vinegar flavored popcorn.

  148. We typically pop our popcorn on the stove but the cheddar variety sounds very delicious!

  149. I might! We are also cheeseheads…so if we ever get a sample of the popcorn and try it…we might buy it!

  150. I would love any of the new flavors but the sea salt and vinegar sounds yummy!!!
    GO PACK GO!!

  151. I like Orville on facebook!

  152. OH MY GOODNESS! My sweet friend! Thank you for all the special goodies. I’m thankful for all the years of our friendship(and that you are only 3 hours away now!) and the special ways you use your thoughtfulness and creativity to show your love. I am blown over by the generosity of this gift. Love, Jessika

  153. I’m a plain kind of person, but my family would love the different flavors. I’m a fan of O. R. popcorn. He’s from Nebraska, I am thinking, and that’s where I’m from too. It pops better than other kinds. I like that.

  154. I am really excited about trying the new flavors and the first one will be white cheddar for sure!

  155. I liked Life as mom on FB.

  156. I think white cheddar pairs perfectly with popcorn! What a creative idea to have flavor packets – that way you can control how much seasoning you add!!

  157. Mmmm, I love sea salt and vinegar – I’d love to try those!

  158. I’m a fan on Facebook!

  159. OH I’m definitely excited to try the new flavors. We like to sprinkle things on our popcorn, and I love that the packets come “on the side” so we can make big batches and let the kids flavor theirs in smaller bowls. The sea salt and vinegar sounds awesome — we love those in chips, but this will be much healthier way to get those flavors!

  160. I like both Orville and you on FB.

  161. Jessica you always amaze me with how creative you are.

  162. megan bergman hughes says:

    So So fun to open up this email from LifeasMom and see an old friend’s face. Jessika and I served together at a Young Life camp in Colorado while we were still in High School. Your words about her now are true to the ones I would’ve used about her 20 years ago. Now, that’s something!! Fun to see your face, Jessika.

    While I live nearby Cheesehead land, I too would rather talk with the folks watching the game than watch it myself. So funny.
    Megan

  163. I love popcorn and once long ago one of the microwavable popcorn companies made a marshmallow flavored one. It was by far my favorite! I’d try the new popcorn flavors.

  164. You had me at seasoning on the side – I too am an on the side kind of person. And white cheddar sounds yummy!

  165. Orville Redenbacher is the only brand of popcorn we buy-love the movie theater butter and regular butter flavors so we would definitely try the new flavor. Would be excited to try it!

  166. I am thinking that the “on the side” is the selling point for me! White cheddar sounds great!

  167. I love trying new flavors!! I love all that Packers stuff! Big fans here even though we’re in Minnesota, thanks!

  168. I love their caramel popcorn. I’m up to trying new flavors!

  169. The white cheddar is right up my alley! I would want to eat it daily!

  172. I would want to try the extra cheese. Sounds super yummy! I would eat that more for sure. :)

  173. Yes, we will try those. I would love the salt & vinegar.

  174. I would really like to try the salt and vinegar. I love that flavor on chips and I may really enjoy it on popcorn. If so, then I would definitely eat more!

  175. Ooh, the salt and vinegar sounds yummy. We already eat a TON of popcorn around here—it’ll be tough to eat more, but we can try. Thanks!

  176. Elizabeth says:

    I might be interested in trying other flavors of popcorn. It does sound yummy!

  177. Elizabeth says:

    I like your page on FB. :)

  181. I’ll eat any flavor!

  182. We have popcorn numerous times a week at our house. I am a big fan of cheesy popcorn (pre-packaged) and would like to try the microwave version. If its to our liking, you can bet it’ll become a staple!

  183. I think the White Cheddar one would be delicious!

  184. I am obsessed with salt and vinegar chips so I would love to try the new salt and vinegar flavored popcorn!

  185. I “liked” Orville on FB!

  186. We love popcorn in our house and having a variety of flavors might make us eat even more. I would love to try the salt and vinegar. If it is anything like salt and vinegar potato chips, I’ll be happy. :)

  187. Sea salt and vinegar popcorn!?!? I’m in heaven! Yes – I will be eating a lot more popcorn now. Yummmmmmmmm

    Would definitely give Orville’s White Cheddar a try. With 3 babes in the house I’m sure the bowl would empty quickly!! I also liked the Nacho flavour of popcorn but still a fan! of the classic Butter flavour! :D

  220. I’ve grow up with popcorn memories all around me.. as my Grandma would say “Let’s go scorch us some corn” She would have loved (and I for sure will try) ALL flavors but I’m betting white cheddar will be my Bestie! ;)

  221. michele malone says:

    I’m already a long time fan of O. R. on facebook, but I did like Life as Mom today. Thank you! Go Packers!

  225. We love Orville’s in our house. We have the plain corn in a jar for our air popper and the pop-up bowls–great invention! I’d love to try the cheese flavor. Go Niners!

  226. I have been following you for over a month now and THIS IS BY FAR my favorite post!
    I am a HUGE Packer fan and in my house that is a BIG deal! Hubby is Cowboy fan, middle son is Colts fan…so it gets rough here! :)
