Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls: Review & Giveaway, CONTEST CLOSED!

CONTEST CLOSED!
Recently, I was blessed by the Pillsbury Company and My Blog Spark with the opportunity to try Pillsbury's new Orange Sweet Rolls.

Oh, the memories that come flooding back... I can remember early Sunday mornings, before Church, when Nan & Pop would put the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls and Apple Turnovers in the oven. The smell of the rolls and fresh-brewed coffee would permeate the house... it was idyllic. Yep -- they let me drink coffee! I'm glad they did -- it's still my favourite drink!

I can close my eyes and see them at the kitchen table... good memories. It makes me smile. Okay, it also brings a tear to my eye.

I was so excited when I opened the package from Pillsbury. I found a coupon for a free can of the Orange Sweet Rolls and a lovely photo album.




I didn't waste anytime getting to the store. I HAD to get those Orange Sweet Rolls!

I did save them for Sunday morning, just as Nan & Pop did! I wasn't disappointed, either.

With today's hectic schedules, leisurely mornings and breakfast with the family are difficult to come by. Luckily, Sundays present the perfect opportunity to reconnect and share a delicious breakfast together.

To start the week off right, take time out to create a sweet Sunday morning moment with your family with Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls.

Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls are warm, fresh, and ready to serve in just minutes. With an ooey-gooey texture and a delicious orange icing, Orange Sweet Rolls have a mouth watering aroma that is sure to bring your family together like no other breakfast! Packed with the love and flavor of a treat made from scratch, but without the time and cleanup, Orange Sweet Rolls are the perfect addition to your family's Sunday morning traditions.


The Pillsbury Company has a winner! These rolls came out of the oven so soft and creamy and the fragrance of orange lingered in the air.

They are... so, so good. The frosting was sweet and buttery and the taste had just enough orange to complement the roll but didn't over-power it. Perfection!

Now, Pillsbury and My Blog Spark would like to offer one lucky Gathering My Roses reader a chance to win their very own prize pack consisting of a VIP coupon for Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls as well as a photo album to help keep your family's sweet Sunday morning memories close at hand!

I LOVE the orange sweet rolls.

Our Sunday morning traditions consisted of going to church as a family. After church we would all gather around the table and enjoy a home cooked meal together and discuss our plans for the week.

I adore the Pillsbury breakfast rolls! I never had the orange sweet rolls until I was older, but my sister and I would make the cinnamon rolls together on Sunday mornings when I was younger. Although there wasn't much "making" involved, we popped open the canister together, laid them in a circular together, and then iced them together when they came out of the oven.

Another favorite Sunday morning family tradition was when my parents, sister and I would bike to the park together and then come home to make homemade banana bread, yum!

Our Sunday mornings start with breakfast. We always have something different every week.

Karyn Hughes said...

We would always have a quick breakfast - like sweet rolls -- and head to church. Our Sunday family time was mostly after church, when we would gather.

If my daughter and I are home together on a weekend morning, I'll make scrambled eggs and salsa for us - long time favorite! These Orange Sweet Rolls would be an awesome addition to that!

We always went to church on Sundays & then either came home to a family dinner or went to a very special Buffet at the train station in Omaha, Nebraska. They had a large, very ornate treasure chest where the kids could choose a prize (and they weren't junky, like nowadays).

When I was growing up Sunday mornings were a big deal. We'd have a big breakfast with meat (sausage or bacon) eggs, biscuits homemade by my mother and gravy. Then we'd all dress up and go to church! Thanks so much! pamelashockley(AT)netscape(DOT)net

Quiet mornings on Sunday and breakfasts usually cold cereal or oatmeal.
My childhood memory is of French toast and lots of syrup with crispy bacon with my family except when dad was working shifts.
