A recent Lawry´s survey found that your choice of flavor says more about you than you think. The nationwide poll looked at preferences for tart, spicy, sweet, and savory flavors and found that your choice can reveal some interesting aspects of your personality.
Joyous Joiners - Tart Flavors
If you are one for tart flavors, you tend to be extremely happy overall, particularly with your family, finances, work/life balance and even your health. As a Joyous Joiners you are an extrovert who loves to entertain at home, find it very important to join in social events in your community and are active on the greatest number of social networking sites.
Self-Assured Adventurers - Spicy Flavors If your preference is for spicy flavors, consider yourself a confident, adventurous individual with a passion for travel and cooking. You are the biggest risk taker and although impulsive, you are not reckless - as a Self-Assured Adventurer you also tend to be resourceful, analytical, and most able to "look at the big picture."
The Sweet Lifers - Sweet Flavors
As a Sweet Lifer, home and family are close to your heart. You are the kindest and most loyal, although you probably wouldn´t admit that as you are also the most modest. As an individual that prefers sweeter flavors (honey and fruit-infused), you are influenced by your parents, enjoy family entertainment, and consider yourself spiritual.
The Conventionalists - Savory Flavors
Your passion for savory flavors shows you have an enthusiasm for politics, enjoy camping and hiking and love outdoor barbeques and American cuisine. Along with the other Conventionalists, you tend to be more introverted than the rest of the groups and often describe yourself as a homebody.
Lawry´s has something for you no matter what your flavor is, including two new marinades and four new Seasoning Mix packets that help create simple meals with an abundance of flavor:
Marinades: Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ; Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato; Seasoning Mixes: Asian Style Beef & Broccoli, Chimichurri Burrito Casserole, Mediterranean Sundried Tomato & Garlic Chicken, Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil.
I was fortunate to receive a bunch of Lawry's goodies thanks to MyBlogSpark, which included the marinades, seasoning mixes, and more.
It was so hard to decide what to make with all of the delcious-sounding flavors, but the first thing I made was chicken with the Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ.
The marinade smelled great, and I marinated some chicken tenderloins in it for 45 minutes. All it takes is 30 minutes, but the longer you let it marinate, the stronger the flavor is supposed to be. I would've let it marinate a lot longer, but I wanted to make sure it would be ready in time for dinner.
After baking the chicken tenderloins for about 35 minutes, it came out moist and delicious.
It was a bit spicy, but also very tangy and flavorful.
I think I'll be trying the Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala Seasoning Mix next because I love to eat it Chicken Marsala at restaurants, so hopefully it'll turn out just as good when I make it!
Lawry's offers a variety of products to cater to all sorts of tastes, so it should be easy to find something that suits your flavor preference!
Shop: You can find Lawry's Seasoning Mixes and Marinades at grocers nationwide.
